    I use DVD Xcopy Platinum. Almost original quality and it fits the whole thing on one disk..some programs have to break it up onto 2 disks..

    ok another question:

    Im assuming when you use this program or a decrypter to copy a dvd, it saves the dvd to your hard drive and then burns to your DVD R off the file on the hard drive? is this what happens? the reason im asking is because im wondering if i can put the original dvd in my DVD RW drive, use DVDShrink, then take the original out and burn the DVD from a file on my computer.

    If Im not mistaken it still has to make a temporary image on the HD because you have to rip it, then burn it. I dont thin it can compress on the fly like that. It has to compress and then burn.
