    Hi,
    I just started burning dvd's yesterday and I have one question...After I use DVD shrink and compress a file, how do I keep the original menu's from the DVD I just backed up? This is not addressed it the guide at http://www.chrismccann.co.uk/index.htm . Any help would be appreciated.

    As long as you didn't re-author the disc (the re-author option in Shrink) then the entire disc contents, including the menus, will be on the copied disc.

    Thanks for the reply. I've just done a full back-up of my Criterion Collection "Hard Boiled" DVD and it came out great. Thant makes 2 DVD's I've burned and no coasters, yet.

    I'm not changin' nothing, these discs are too expensive to waste. I've also found that compression of animated menus tends to make them a little bit jumpy. on my 3rd disc, I compressed the film and exteas and left the menus as they were. The menus came out perfect and there was hardly any change in the overall disc compression.

    Just a hint/observation.
