    Hi Guyes,
    I m using nero 7 esssential (It's came with DVD RW drive when I bought).

    1) I've copied 3 movies with all necessary files (.VOB, .IFO, .BUP) from a DVD Disc. The total size 5.64 GB.

    But I want to write in a DVD-R/DVD+R (4.7 GB) using nero. How can I compress the files so I can burn in 4.7 GB?
    Is it possible with nero 7 or I need to use extra soft? please advice...

    2) If I copied only the .VOB files & write in a new disk manually with nero, then the embaded subtitles are lost. But I want to keep it. How can I keep the subtitles?

    Any one please advice...

    You can use Nero Recode (essentially DVD Shrink in a new dress) to make it fit, then use Nero to burn. If you don't have Recode, use DVD Shrink (or better yet, DVD Rebuilder) to do all the work, then burn.

    The process you are talking about is called authoring. It is easier to use VOB2MPG to extract the video/audio stream from the VOBs, then author a new disc with something like GUIForDVDAuthor (free) or Tmpgenc DVD Author (not free), that to try and add menus to an existing VOB set. Tmpgenc can probably import the VOBs directly.

    DVD Rebuilder is only for re-encoding a movie to make it smaller.

    Totaly 1 Movie with all the necessary files from disk - 1.17 GB. I want to compress this files for testing purpose.

    The first one is telling you that you don't need to compress the files because they already fit on a single layer disc. DVD-RB, DVD Shrink and Nero Recode are all designed to shrink a DVD9 down to DVD5 size.

    The second one is telling you that your DVD is incorrectly structured. Your original DVD should have had a folder called Video_TS, which has all the files for the DVD in it. This is what you should have either copied (for a non-protected disc) or ripped (for a protected disc) to your HDD, and is what you should have pointed DVD-RB at.

    I haven't seen the third error before, but would guess that it is probably related to the second one.

    If you want to test these programs, rip a full commercial disc and let them work the way they were designed.

    Hi Guns1,
    I've installed DVDShrink 3.2. I've a DVD disc with 4 movies & total size 7.81GB. But I need 3 movies from that disc & write in 1 DVD-R disk 4.37GB. So, I've tried to reduce the total disk with DVD shrink (100% ratio, autometic).

    But, It reduced to 6.51 GB as back up. So, I delete 1 movie which I dont need. Finally it contains 4.68 GB.
    But I need lower then 4.37GB, how can I manage this? So, that I can write in my disc?

    Because of the way DVD Shrink reduces the size, it has limits. You can run the files through Shrink a second time, however the reduction you are looking for is going to produce low quality.

    DVD Rebuilder is by far the best solution for what you are trying to do. However if your computer specs are correct, expect it to run all night.

    ya, I tried a movie with rebuilder, but it took few hours just with 1 movie, so i just reject it.
    DVD shrink is much better & time saving with limitation. but, I can't reach my target!!! I'll try 2nd time & let u know...

    If you use Shrink, make sure you also use Deep Analysis and turn on AEC as well. The quality is going to be low, but this will help some.
