I've been ripping and burning DVDs for some time now. I use DVDFab9(DVD Copy) to copy the DVDs to my computer. This creates the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. After that, I use DVD Shrink and Nero 7 in order to copy it back to a DVD and watch the DVD using a DVD player. Option 1: Most DVD movies are longer that 4.5 gb. I use DVD Shrink to split the movie in half. I have the first half of the chapters on disk 1 and the second half on disk 2. No compression. The DVDs look and play perfectly. I notice that DVD Shrink does not work with Nero 12. I had to go back to Nero 7. I am looking into alternatives to DVD Shrink and Nero 7 that will do exactly what I'm doing now. Option 2: I attempted to use DVD Shrink to create an iso file. I used ImgBurn and Nero 7 to create a playable DVD from the iso file. The DVD stalled and skipped and would not play. Why does Option 1 work and Option 2 does not? If DVD Shrink and Nero 7 did not exist, what could I use?
