I'm having a bit of a problem maintaing audio levels after backing up a DVD with DVD Shrink. I've done a few searchs and haven't really found an answer to my problem which is basically this: after backing up a DVD, I pop it into my player (not on the computer) and have to turn up the volume all the way to get normal listening levels. I saw a post where VirtualDub can up the levels (these are .vob files) but I noticed no difference at all, unless I'm doing something wrong. I have SoundForge Studio (which I don't use that often because of no need) and tried to use the normalize function (by bringing in the entire .vob file) which works, but then it tries to save as an .mpg file which takes FOREVER. I stopped it after looking at the 1% completion status for 10 minutes. Is there an easy way to accomplish what I'm trying to do? seems simple, but... :>)

If all you using is DVDShrink to transcode then I cant see why it would change the audio volume level.
Have you compared the original DVD with the new DVD+/-R?
Is the audio AC3?If so you will usually find the volume to be low requiring you to turn up the volume nob on your TV set.~Luke~
The sound on the original disc is fine. At 25% volume you can hear everything just fine. Weird.
Certainly is weird.
I cant say I've ever noticed a difference in volume with DVDShrink as I thought it left the audio alone and only transcoded the video.I dont touch the audio so I find backing up remarkably easy.
I can only suggest you take a look in the tool sections on the left < and download several to find one that suits your needs.
Belight or Besweet maybe?~Luke~
