Making dvd backup copy

I am trying to make a backup of a dvd using dvd decrypter and dvd shrink 3.2. I can get everything to burn fine but the files dont play in order so, after the previews, the film will start in the middle instead of the beginning. Any ideas?

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 (english) and (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. With 1CLICK DVD COPY - PRO, you can make a perfect copy with just one click.

Can not see my region I want it region free to open all Dvds please

(If this is a Windows-based OS) What you need to do is either download one of three free apps. The first two I really recommend, the third simply strips the DVD of it's region and creates two sets of files that you can use other software to create a new, region-less DVD.

You can use Nero, Roxio or ironically, actually use one of the first two Applications (for Windows) I recommend. That's why depending on your use, I recommend the first two over the third. If you want to take DVD and use a standard DVD-R to burn it to and make it region-less, the Application you want is called DVD Shrink.
It's called "Shrink" because commercially purchased or rented DVDs show that they are 9 GBs, which would require a DVD-DL or Dual Layer. Very expensive, almost $5-$10/blank disc depending on where you are & the DVD burner has to be DVD-DL capable.
In order to get a DVD down to a standard blank DVD-R (or +R, both of which you can buy for cheap on the big 25, 50 or 100 count spindles) which holds roughly 5 GB of data, DVD Shrink will get rid of all the useless empty space that DVD manufacturers put on their discs to make it look like it's 9GB of data (it's not, it's an illusion).
So basically it compacts all the data next to each other like moving all you shirts on the hangars in your closet close together, off to one side, thus opening up a load of new space to hang other clothes up.
Once you run DVD Shrink you pick the source DVD or .avi/DiVX/mp4/.mkv file (you can use DVDs or video files from Torrent sites w/ both of the top two, but not the third Application, that one is strictly DVD use only and still requires other software to make is burn onto a blank DVD.) DVD Shrink will analyze the DVD, which takes about 5 minutes, and you can see a little preview of what it's seeing, but moves faster if you un-check "show preview" during "Analysing" phase (it was developed by a Brit, thus the "S" and not "Z" in Analysing Phase. Once it's done Analysing you can use help to show you how go into "Re-Author" to remove parts of the DVD you don't want (like Spanish subtitles if you don't speak Spanish), but the fastest way is to click the "Backup!" button at the top and it will take the files is created and show a dialogue box to verify the burner, or if you want to burn it as an .iso file you can choose that. Make sure you have a folder created for where these files go. Mine is simply called "DVDs to Burn" and it's on a drive that has the appropriate free space. After that, it will begin burning your new DVD w/ no region on it.
The second Application I would recommend and will conver the DVD or video file (I use this one more for video files to convert and burn to DVD, but it will accept DVDs. This Application is Called "Convert X to DVD". It does basically what DVD Shrink does only allows eay changing of your DVD menu, etc. But I would recommend Convert X to DVD for .avi movie files or.mpg/.mp4/.mkv over a DVD. DVDs I generally go to DVD Shrink.
However Convert to X to DVD has a few more options to customize what you're burning & I suggest using the same folder you've created for the files for DVD Shrink. When you start the convert, it will do the same thing and in the output folder (DVDs to Burn, or whatever you want to name it) you will see the same two Folders: "VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS". These are the files these two programs use to create your "Backup DVD" and the third application makes the exact same files and provided you select that as your location for output files they will go to that folder.
With Convert X to DVD, you can choose to either automatically delete these "TS" files from your output directory. I do not believe DVD Shrink has that option. But if you don't have them automatically deleted to you will need to go to My Computer and go to your output directory and delete the VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders, A) because they are taking up 5 GB of your space and B) the burning programs want to write there as well and they all use the generic VIDEO_TS, etc. folders.
Remember to empty the recycle bin, if it doesn't say "this is too big to send to Recycle Bin, do you want to permanently delete the folder?" (Which you say Yes to), because until you empty the recycle bin, you wont get those 5 GB of space free. Of course if the program says "There are already files in that folder , do you want to delete them?" You say "Yes" and it will automatically remove them re-write what's being converted. I just err on the side of caution and manually delete the VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders and empty the recycle bin anyway. And with DVD Shrink, you can use the Open Files option at the top to pick the folder that your file decrypter/region is creating these VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders ro, and it will do the Analysing stage and then you click "Backup!" and there you go.
If you simply want to read the region and strip it to make it region-less, use the third program called "DVD Decrypter". It was show you the region and give you options to either make it Region 1 (N. America) or make it region-less. It only works with DVDs, no video files and it too will create VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders in the directory you select. So deleting them immediately is bad.
You want make sure you use one of other two Applications, or Nero first, before deleting them like of DVD Shrink where is says "Open Files" and select your output folder where it will Analyze, etc. I also believe Convert X to DVD also will do this as well.
The reason I am throwing in the 3rd Application when you have two other options that seem to do it all, is b/c the do it all Applications can possibly skip something and make a bad burn (although rare). Whereas DVD Decrypter ONLY does that and then you can use the other two Applications or Nero to pick the VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders and then burn it to a simple/cheap 5GB blank DVD that has no region and can be played from here in Kentucky, to Mongolia, to the Antarctic. I personally have all 3, just in case one program won't decrypt the region, but others will.

I hope this helps you and the three Applications I spoke of, DVD Shrink, Convert X to DVD or DVD Decrypter are all freeware so you won't have to pay a thing for them. And I "back up" my entire DVD library so my DVDs don't get used, their official copies do. My name is Dave and if you have further questions, feel free to email me at (I used to be tech for Apple). Also contact me if you have a Mac that doesn't run Bootcamp w/ Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 on it, and I can give you some Mac appropriate answers. Hope these helps and Please leave the appropriate feedback for me. If you don't mind. Good luck.

Hi , There are several causes possible :
1° Try burning at the lowesrt speed possible to avoid errors ;
2° Maybe you have purchased neww blancos and maybe they come from another manufacturer .
3° Your burning device is out of order or the firmware is outdated . Check on the manufacture's site to verify available updates .
4° Try burning with another device . Borrow a friend's external writer for instance .

How to burn dvds

How to burn a DVD-Video Disc with Nero Burning ROM /> /> /> Alright, I know that many of you may say that there are plenty of DVD burning progs out there and that if I do a guide like this I should cover all of them. But I only got Nero and many users are asking me about how to burn a DVD-Video with Nero, so that's why Nero is the one for the guide.
This guide is supposed to be used by people that have created the compressed DVD files using DVD Shrink and now they don't know what to do with them or everyone that wants to see how to create a DVD-Video. Remember that for the DVD Decrypter guide you don't need Nero, as DVD Decrypter can burn the ISO file itself. Anyway before start reading this guide keep in mind that it is for use with DVD Shrink or other program that creates .IFO and .VOB files. Don't use it to burn files or mp3 in your DVD, for this you need to select a DVD-ISO disc.
Of course, Nero Burning ROM is a commercial program and we don't have it available for download. Instead you can get a trial version here.

/> /> First of all I make clear that I use version 6. If you have an older version that supports DVD (I think all the versions after 5.5.x.x) then the process is the same. Please make sure you start Nero Buring ROM I show here and NOT the Nero SmartStart. /> /> The new complication comes up. If you see a Wizard close it (there must be a button down right which says Close Wizard or something). Open the pull-down menu I show and select DVD.
NOTE: If there is no pull-down menu then your version does not support DVD.
/> /> Select DVD-Video (1) from the list. Then just make sure the settings (2) are the same as shown here. Then click on the Label tab. /> /> Here just put the label that you want your DVD to have. (It's the name that you see before your drive's letter every time you go to My Computer). After that click New. /> /> At the left of your screen you see the folders of the DVD we are going to burn. Notice the VIDEO_TS folder is red. Double click to open the VIDEO_TS folder. /> /> At the right of your screen you can see your hard drive. Browse to the folder where you have your DVD files (the files that DVD Shrink created). /> /> Select all the files. I repeat: ALL the files. /> /> Now drag and drop ALL the files you selected at the step before into the VIDEO_TS folder we opened before at your left.
IMPORTANT: People keep asking me that. Yes you put ALL the files DVD Shrink or other program created into the VIDEO_TS folder. The AUDIO_TS folder remains empty.
/> /> This is how Nero should look after all this. Note that the bat at the bottom should be all blue, or with just a little yellow where it finishes. Now click the burn icon that I show with the arrow. /> /> Here select just Write. Put the write speed for your media (for slower media like here, Nero reduces the speed from 4x to 2x, nothing to worry about) and finally click Burn!
Wait for it to finish and you will have a very nice DVD-Video disc!

If I'm running dvd decrypter and attempt to make backups to my hollywood movies with roxio easy cd and dvd burning, are there going to be issues I should be aware of. Does that combo work most often?

My project ended on a positive note. After another few hours of downloading and trying a variety of copy programs I happened upon "Ideal" DVD copy. Voila!! I now have a working copy of "The Proposal" movie.
Unlike 1click, the trial period for this program is realistic, giving plenty of time for experimentation. I'll probably buy the product at the end of the trial if further use proves positive.
By the way, "Ideal" shrinks as well as decrypts the movie (I think) and the copy appears to be faultless. The supposition that you only need this one program may not be altogether valid because I've also got decrypter and a variety of other programs (anydvd etc.) downloaded on my PC.
Anyway. . . . worked for me! I'll keep your address/offer for future. The $19.99 option would probably work best for me. I'm kind of a novice as you might guess.

LG HDD/DVD player - navigational error message

DVD shrink can't handle the copy protection on the disk you're trying to backup, use DVDFab decrypter first instead.
Get it here:

Use DVDFab to rip the files to your HDD, it will create a VIDEO_TSfolder and put all the video files in it. DVDFab is a whole movieripper only, so you're getting everything on the disk ripped to you'reHDD, once DVDFab is done, run DVD shrink. Use DVD shrink to open thefiles created by DVDFab (use the open files tab and browse to theVIDEO_TS folder created by DVDFab and choose it), at this point shrinkwill import the files, use shrink as you normally would to create yourbackup.

A program that I have used extensively is DVD Shrink. Not only can it RIP the movie onto your hard drive, but you can re-author the DVD to have just what you want in it. The link below will start the download shortly after the page loads.
In order to burn the movies again, for backup purposes only (otherwise it's illegal), you should try DVD Decrypter. Here's the link to the file;
