I am new to the dvd coping scene and I learned from the numerous posts the dvd shrink is the way to go when it comes to compressing a dvd. I downloaded a copy and have read the outline for getting started. I made sure all of my settings are correct and go to back up my dvd (A Mighty Wind). the program does its stuff however when I go to play the move in the preview area I notice that there is no sound. Is this a problem???? I have also tried to locate the video_ts folder and I can not find it. I can find the video_ts file, but not the folder. I'm searching the destination folder where I backed up the original dvd. As an unrelated question with dvd shrink allow a user to use the extra features and menu options??? I am using ATI gold as a burner, but Nero burn is on its way. I basicly am trying to make sure I am shrinking the dvd correctly prior to copying anything. Thanks for all of your help!!!! I'm sorry if I sound like I don't have a clue, but I'm a newbie to this stuff.
