    As it says, I'm ripping a DVD with DVD Shrink, but when it comes to burning the DVD, I'm told that the file is too big for the blank media (?)
    Any ideas?

    ......yes
    The overall file size, after shrinking is 4298MB - the blank disc is 4.7GB (of course) and my maximum file size is set to 4700MB in the DVD Shrink preferences

    in dvdshrink set your max size to 4.38 gigs, they use a different formula for the size of a gig

    well max a dvd can hold is 4482 megs. must be reading it wrong because 4298 megs will fit on a dvd. so if it says it is to big then its to big. since you seem to think megs and GB equal to the same size (4700 megs 4700 gigs) i bet that is the problem...

    Hi, I see you use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter...

    Im using right now DVD Shrink and works fine for me, but wondering can DVD Shrink burn the DVD on its own? I have also CopyTodvd but when I tried to burn for the first time it said

    Type Error: Unable to start the write process - finalization skipped to preserve media

    Type Error: WriteSector failed at sector 16(16): Code 00 24 00 (No sense information)

    I already emailed VSO software as I checked out their forums and they have a patch, but waiting is the problem.. Can I use Nero instead? How do I set it to where DVD Shrink asks me if I want to burn after backing it up? Any suggestions on what dvd burning to use?

    My burner is a HP Writer 300n
    "What It Do"
    Huh ?????

  9. When shrink does that I just redo the dvd again & things are just fine & the right size.
