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.

How to reset my dell inspiron 2020 to factorry settings


1 - You should make a backup hard disk file.
2 - You must have the installation CD Operating System (1 CD or DVD Original) and controloradores (1 original CD or DVD or the downloads page of the DELL), those who brought when you bought it.
3 - You install the operating system (this erases all data from the hard drive), then install the drivers.
4 - You must install a Antivuris and then install Office programs you need. These all purchases or downloads from the internet(trial 30 day) o free.
5 - copy the backed up files to disk.

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.

Click: Start
Click: All Programs
Click: Accessories
Click: System Tools
Click: System Restore

Pick a "restore-point" that was taken _before_ the update was applied,
and restore your system to that previous date/time.

OR ....

Look under "All Programs" for a utility that will help you burn CD/DVD(s) to create a "Recovery Disk" set. Burn more CD/DVD(s) with all your "data" files (or copy all your data-files to an external hard-drive). Then, boot from the "Recovery Disk", to begin the process of restoring the "factory" settings.

I have a video disk in my computer and is playing on media diret but i can not burn/copy to my desk top. would and how can I do that?


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;

What type of CD did you copy? Different CD types have different methods for copying them (Example: a music CD has multiple tracks to copy; better to rip them then reburn them onto a blank disk; a DVD disk has multiple data, video and audio files protected on the disk, a straight copy wont work). Based on your question, you tried copying a music CD. Use a program like Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or iTunes to rip the disk, then copy the ripped tracks to a blank disk. All three of these programs are free, and there are tons of other free alternatives out there to do this.

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
