    Ok I just downloaded the program and it ripped a dvd then it said you have to use a burn program. So I use Nero and ripped the file into a dvd-r but it can only play in my cpu not my ps2 or dvd player? Is there another burn program that I can use instead of Nero?

    Im trying to copy a dvd into a dvd-R. I already rip the dvd from dvd shrink. It said I have to use a burn program so I used Nero but when I burned the rip dvd it can only play in my Computer. It says disc error in my ps2 and dvd player:(

    I think DVDs from DVD shrink can only be played on computers, because neither of my DVD players load the disc.
    Any one else know aonther way of making self-copies of DVDs that can be played on DVD players?

    Why don't you just use the backup feature on DVD shrink, instead of faffing around with another program like Nero?

    Hey Malice, do you know how to compress a DVD(s) so you can fit two or three onto a single DVD? I am almost there but I am missing one or two steps or I just can't figure them out. I have all the software. DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and even VIrtual Dameon Manageer to create a ghost drive to store one of the compressed dvds.

    You said the same thing last time in the other thread that I created and I gave you the same response. Wiccan is capable of doing it. But he hasn't been on so I haven't been able to ask him how he does it.

    Okay. Listen up.

    This has NOTHING to do with DVD Shrink, or your computer. It's the DVDs themselves.

    If you use a ****ty DVD player, and cheap DVD-Rs, then you are going to have a ton of problems.

    Memorex, TDK, and Fuji are the best brands in blank media, and if you buy some off brand, you're not going to get a decent burn, and if you do, the disk will probably fail before too long.

    Also, if you're using a PS2, you NEED to be using one of those three disk brands, because you can't let the PS2 know you're using a burned disk, or it won't play.

    I'm pretty sure you need a mod chip in order to play burned discs of any type..

    One problem, Phillips dvds have been known to crap out and not play random dvds for some odd reason.

    Platinum are the best dvd's there are, I never had any problems with them.
    They play anywhere anytime!

    Anyway, did you burn the dvd in the dvd "video" format, or did you just drag and drop the files in it and clicked burn?

    Dvd Shrink will compress your 9 Gb dvd, into 4,6 GB. It'll create Vob, Ifo and Bup files. these'll play in every dvd player. And in my experience the cheaper the player the more brands of dvd's it takes.
