    Get your money back from DVD X Copy. Decrypter and DVD shrink is all you need. Infact you can do it all in DVD decrypter. Nero 6 is nice since you already own it DVD shrink will use it for the burn. There is a DVD shrink forum on this site.

    I'll go with Mr_Del on that, I also like CloneDVD2!

    As fast as I put X copy on my system, I took it right off

    It's simple to use, Yes, but you don't have a lot of options on its output.

    There are a couple reason I think DVD X Copy is not better:

    1-You cant copy a copy from X Copy
    2-That anoying "This is a DVDbackup blah blah blah" At the begining of play
    3-They lost the lawsuit and had to strip down the functions.
    4-$90
    5-Coasters
    6-Takes forever to copy. you could watch the movie 1 1/2 times while waiting for it to finish.
    7-Loves the lock up bug in your computer.

    Those FREE ones I mentioned, Just stick with them. Oh yeah you can copy a copy made with those programs.

    I can help myself whenever i see this topic up for discusion, and i think is because of the differnce that i, at times, continue to notice, between dvd shrink and dvdxcopy platinum. so many times my, non-expert in the matter, eyes tell me that when it works, when it works. dvdxcopy platinum's picture quality stability is somewhat BETTER.

    two points though; 1)dvd shrink is great and free and 2) dvdxcopy platinum is too much money. see you

    It is hard to claim that an out dated program is "better" than programs that are frequently updated.

    Yes it is true that Shrink is no longer updated. The creator went elswhere. DVD decrypter is still updated and will work with that new protection that hit this year. You can set up DVD Shrink to use Decrypter for the RIP and Nero for the burn. Even use Decrypter for the burn. I realy cant notice a difference from the original and the copy. The stereo is all there even. The 5.1 as well.

    although i have had nero for a while i only use it together with shrink. one question; since dvd decrypter install the whole movie into your hard drive, can i use nero to compress the movie into a D5.
    so the question really is; does nero compress?

    thank you.

    I have never tried with with Nero and have not even seen an option to do so. If it can then I am not aware of it.

    This is what I got on a Google search about Nero Recode2:

    Nero Recode 2 is a new program for copying and archiving
    non-copy-protected DVD video titles onto 4.7 GB DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW or DVD-RAM discs.

    If the source DVD is larger than 4.7 GB, Nero Recode 2 can compress the contents so that they fit onto an empty DVD disc without any noticeable loss of quality.

    Nero Recode 2 is a program for compiling DVD-Video titles (that are not copy-protected) onto other media (CD and DVD).

    If you have DVD-Video titles on different DVDs and would like to compile your favorite titles onto one DVD, you can use Nero Recode 2 to have the desired DVD-Video titles in a new compilation which you can then 'burn'. It does not matter whether you burn the compilation on a DVD or a CD.

    Nero Recode 2 is a program you can use to convert DVD-Video titles that are not copy-protected into the Nero Digital Format (MPEG-4) and to burn them onto discs.

    Hopes this helps.

    Nero Recode2 was made by Mr Shrink,he now works for Nero.The program is very similar and even a little quicker.You will need to use DVD Decrypter or AnyDVD as a ripper.
