Just so I have it correctly as I think you may have it a bit backwards. You wouldn't have to compress a 4.7gb to be able to fit it all on a 8.5gb...(9.4gb) You may have to compress a DL disk to be able to fit all of the contents on a smaller 4.7gb disk. There is such a program out there that will do this. i.e. give you the ability to "backup" purchased copies of your dvd collection. The program that can do this is called DVD Shrink. I believe you can find this at www.download.com The program also allows you to re-author the disk to only include the movie and not all of the extras.

Good Luck

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.

The Easiest Way to Use DVD Shrink


<b>DVD</b> <b>Shrink</b> 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.<br /><br />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 <b>use</b> DVD Shrink to cut the contents down to size as to fit on the disk.<br /><br />This article will provide you <b>how</b> 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.<br />To use DVD Shrink, Things you will need:<br />* DVD Shrink program <br />* A DVD movie to backup<br />* DVD blank disc<br /><br />Guide: How to Use DVD Shrink 3.2 <br /><br />Step 1. Start the DVD Shrink Program and choose Open Disc from the menu above. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />Step 3. Press OK. It will read the DVD.<br /><img src="remote_image20110803-18141-1qmdivp.gif" /><br />Step 4. Shrink DVD size.<br />1) A breakdown of the movie will be displayed in the right hand column.<br />2) You cannot fit all this on your blank dvd so now press Re-author.<br />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.<br /> <img src="remote_image20110803-18141-17xn34v.gif" /><br />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".<br /> <img src="remote_image20110803-18141-sc8anv.gif" /><br />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.<br /><br />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.

How to Rip & Burn DVDs on a Mac


1) Download and install Handbrake. This free software allows you to easily rip DVDs on any Mac with OS 10.3.9 or higher. Download and install Roxio Toast to compress and burn the DVD,
2) Insert the DVD that you want to rip into the DVD drive. Close any DVD program that starts automatically. Open Handbrake.
3) Make sure that the "Detect Volume" option is selected and click the "Open" button. The Handbrake software will scan the DVD, collect all pertinent information and open the main menu.
4) Make sure that the title Handbrake selected for the DVD is correct. If it is not correct choose the appropriate one from the "Title" menu. Choose a destination for your ripped DVD in the "Destination" section of the menu, the default being your desktop.
5) Click the "Rip" button. (Do not interrupt the process or turn off your computer until the DVD is ripped.) This will create the ripped files and a folder structure which includes a "VIDEO_TS" folder.
6) Open Roxio Toast and select the "Video" tab. Select the "DVD-Video" option from the "VIDEO-TS" menu. Select the "Fit to DVD Compression" option to burn the ripped files onto a single-layer DVD.
7) Choose the "VIDEO_TS" folder that you just created by clicking on the "Select" button. Choose which options you want for your ripped DVD with the "Copy Options" button.
8) Insert a blank DVD into your DVD-R drive. Click the red "Burn" button in Roxio Toaster and allow the program to run its full course. Now your DVD is ready to watch on any DVD player.
Hope this helps.

If you try to burn this on a single layer DVD disk then you will get this error message unless your DVD burn program can compress the video so it can fit on a single layer DVD disc.
OTHERWISE
You need to upgrade your burner to a dual layer burner and burn your video onto a dual layer DVD disc.

Can you copy from a blu ray disk to the HDD


There is only one program at the moment that can decrypt Blu Ray movies. That is AnyDVD HD. You can download the free trial from www.slysoft.com but it is only good for 21 days, after which you'd have to buy it. To burn the movie to another disk you would need a Blu Ray burner and blank blu ray media. Many Blu ray movies are very large, I think they average over 30 gb, so they won't fit onto the 25gb blank BD-R or BD-RE disks without compression or trimming out unwanted extras. 50gb blank disks are available, but are still very expensive. Of course, if the movie happens to be one of those small enough to fit a 25gb blank disk, then you can do a straight transfer. You can use ImgBurn in UDF 2.5 mode to burn blu ray movies. If you want to select just the main movie and one audio track, you might be able to fit a movie onto a BD-R 25gb disk, but it depends on which movie you are trying to back up. You can use tsMuxer to select portions once the movie is decrypted, and then output as a blu ray disk. You can also use a program called BD Rebuilder. It will compress the movie to fit onto a 25gb blank disk. It can also compress to fit onto dual layer or single layer blank dvds....but those disks won't play in all Blu Ray players and the latest version's output is causing playback problems in PS3's when using blank dvds instead of blank BD-R disks. You should also be aware that compressing high definition video takes a powerful computer and a great deal of time. My last attempt to compress a Blu Ray movie to a dual layer dvd size took 14 hours using a Core2Duo based machine

I can copy a movie but when I go to burn movie on blank disc It tells me it needs a double layer disc why Ive burn movies before on sigel layer and have never had this problem before


The movie exceeds the 4.7 GB size, therefore you need to use the two layer whcih can store about 8.2 GB.

In other words, your movie is to long to fit on single layer!

Burning dvds with realplayer


DVD discs come in two capacity sizes.
Single layer DVD have a capacity of 4.7 Gb
Dual layer DVD have a capacity of 8.5 Gb
Some DVD burners are single layer burners only and cannot burn dual layer discs.
The error message you are getting would indicate that the disc you are using is not large enough to copy all your program material.

How to increase the size of the DVDS


I am guessing you are trying to fit a movie onto a blank DVD? You need to compress the video to fit into the 4.7gb available on the disc .... or use dual layer dvds.

A good program for compression is Elby's CloneDVD2.
