The Easiest Way to Use DVD Shrink

DVD Shrink is a freeware DVD transcoder program for Microsoft Windows that uses a DVD ripper to back up DVD movies. The final versions are 3.2.0.15 (english) and 3.2.0.16 (german), all other versions like DVD Shrink 2010 are scams. As commercially-released video DVDs are typically dual layer one of DVD Shrink's functions is to process the video into lesser quality and/or discard extra content such as foreign-language soundtracks so as to fit on a single layer (4.7 GB) DVD.

DVD Shrink is freeware, and it is only to be used to create backup copies of DVDs you already own. It is illegal to make copies of rented or borrowed DVDs, or to copy them and sell them for profit. The reason we need DVD Shrink is because a regular DVD movie doesn't fit on the average 4.7gig size DVD disc, we use DVD Shrink to cut the contents down to size as to fit on the disk.

This article will provide you how can you use DVD Shrink to copy DVD movies step by step. All you need is a DVD Shrink software and you will be able to store and duplicate all your DVD discs.
To use DVD Shrink, Things you will need:
* DVD Shrink program
* A DVD movie to backup
* DVD blank disc

Guide: How to Use DVD Shrink 3.2

Step 1. Start the DVD Shrink Program and choose Open Disc from the menu above.

Step 2. A box will appear. Choose which DVD drive your disk is in. Mine is in F: drive. The name of the disk will show up in brackets. In this case it is called NEW.

Step 3. Press OK. It will read the DVD.

Step 4. Shrink DVD size.
1) A breakdown of the movie will be displayed in the right hand column.
2) You cannot fit all this on your blank dvd so now press Re-author.
3) In the right column there will be a heading called Main movie. There will be a file under this heading. Drag this to the left column. The file size is usually more than 4,700mb and has to be compressed.

Step 5. Click on the "Backup" icon. This is where you will choose a folder for your ripped files. Once you make a folder, make sure the box is checked next to "Create VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS subfolders" and click "OK".

The movie will now play quickly in the viewing box, and you will see the progression of the rip. Once the rip is complete, the movie can be burned to a DVD-R automatically via DVD Shrink using NERO. Or if you have different DVD-burning software, you can open that manually and burn the ripped files as you normally would.

Here we also recommend you the best DVD Copy software, 1CLICK DVD COPY PRO, which is a fast, easy-to-use, full featured program for copying DVD movies onto DVD discs. With 1CLICK DVD COPY - PRO, you can make a perfect copy with just one click. You can free download DVD Shrink via the link below:

DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter are two programs that can be used to backup DVDs.
DVD Shrink reduces dual-layer DVDs in size so that they fit on single, blank DVD media.
DVD Decrypter is used to burn that file to disc after the video has been authored in DVD Shrink.
Open DVD Shrink, click "Full Disc" on the toolbar, then insert your DVD into the disc drive.
Click "Open Disc," then select the DVD drive, and click "OK."
Click "Main Movie," then remove any "Audio" or "Subpicture" (subtitle) streams that you don't need by disabling the tick boxes.

Click the "Extras," and decide if you want to remove any.
If you do, set the "Video" drop-down menu to "Still Image."
Click "Backup" then select "Create an ISO image" from the "Select backup target" drop-down menu.
Select "Browse" and then choose a temporary location for your ISO image to be stored.
Click "Quality Settings," and make sure "Compress video with high..." is selected.
Click "OK." Close DVD Shrink when the ISO image has been created.
Open DVD Decrypter, click "Mode," then "ISO," then "Write W."
Click the folder icon and locate the ISO created with DVD Shrink. Insert a blank DVD, and then click the burn button in the bottom-left.
You will now have backed up your home movie DVD.

Why does my sonic now not let me record DVD's?


if you are trying to copy dvds that are copyright protected the program knows that and won't let you
there is also a compression issue you have to use a large volume disk to copy some /most movies over 4.7 gig

heres what you do go to dvd-hd decrypter and down load the free version then go to dvd shrink and down load that program this will allow you to decrypt and to shrink you dvd,s to the 4.7 gig
then you can copy them

how can i copy a copy right protected dvd movie?


You can't. These movies are protected so they will not be read by your DVD player in copy mode.
