I am new at this. I just bought Nero 8 and I was wondering how can I burn or recode a protected dvd for ipod and zune. I'm not into doing anything illegal, everything is for my own personal use. When I bought Nero 8, the retailer said I can convert all most every movie and audio files. I understand there are softwares out there for that but I was told Nero does it all. I asked a friend who works at a PC store who informed me about dvd shrink. I haven't downloaded it yet because I'm reading on it first. So far I haven't read anything about protected dvds and most of you had problems with it. I've also read it doesn't work with Nero 6 so doesn't it work with the latest version? What all do I need for this program to actually work? I have virtual cd in my PC and Nero. Anything compatible or not? Please let me know. Oh, is dvd shrink simply for those protected dvds???? Thanks.
