You need a program like DVD Shrink to do that.

That being said, making copies of copyrighted DVDs for your friends is against the law, i.e., Illegal. Just a warning that my advice is not to be used to make ILLEGAL copies of copyrighted works. I am assuming you are talking about a non copyrighted 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. With 1CLICK DVD COPY - PRO, you can make a perfect copy with just one click.

How do i copy a disk


Before you Begin Make sure there is no program runing that has opened any file on the original disk. You cannot run the Disk Copy procedure if any file on the original or destination disks is in use by any program. For example, if you were editing a document in MS Word, saving to the disk in Drive A, and now want to copy it to another disk: FIRST quit the MS Word program, then execute the Disk Copy procedure. Caveat LectorThis Disk Copy procedure will make an exact copy of the original disk on the copy disk. It will completely overwrite the copy disk, replacing anything on it with the contents of the original (source) disk. That means that if there are any files on the copy (destination) disk before you begin, those files will be destroyed. You might want to take a look at the destination disk before beginning to be sure there's nothing on it you want to save. -------- Copying a Disk
  1. Double-Click on the My Computer icon on the Desktop. The My Computer window will open.
  2. In the My Computer Window, click once (not the usual double-click!) to select the icon for 31/2 Floppy A:
  3. Click on the File menu and select Copy Disk. The Copy Disk window will open onscreen.
  4. In the Copy Disk window you will see the option:Copy from 3 1/2 Floppy (A:) to 3 1/2 Floppy (A:)Click on the Start button.
  5. A new window will open prompting you to Insert the disk you want to copy from (source disk). Insert the disk and then click on the OK button. The program will begin "reading" the files from this original (source) disk. You can watch the progress in the little "progress bar" in the Copy Disk window.
  6. Once the original disk has been read into memory you'll be prompted toInsert the disk you want to copy to (destination disk)Now remove the original (source) disk from the drive and insert the copy (destination) disk into the drive. The click the OKbutton. You can watch the progress as the computer "writes" to the copy (destination) disk in the Progress bar in the Copy Disk window.
  7. When the copy is completed you'll see a new, small window popup that will report:The copy completed successfullyNow remove that copy (destination) disk. You are finished!
------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

I can copy and burn one dvd. When I try and do a


OK I'll try to make this as easy as possible, you may have to get back to me if you don't understand anything but it is simple just follow the instructions below.

2 free programmes to download

DVD Shrink from here(removes restrictions)

http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvd_shrink.cfm

ImgBurn from here

http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/imgburn.cfm

Install both then put DVD in drive but cancel when it tries to open.

Open DVD Shrink select open disc and wait while it reads it (about 1 1/2 mins)
I suggest you create a folder where you want it to save the temp files to on your desktop but you can do it anywhere.

Select main movie folder then click on back up on the top.

It will tell you where it is going to save the files but you can browse to the folder you created and save them there. As back up target use the drop down menu to select ISO image file. Click ok

Once DVD Shrink has finished you can usr ImgBurn to burn as many copies as you want without the original disc.

Is there a free program that I can use to compress a single layer 4.7gb blank dvd to a 8.5gb size?


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
