If you want to backup your DVD’s many times the data on the disc goes over the 4.7GB mark. The most reliable software solution I use is DVD Shrink. This free application allows you to compress various parts of the DVD you want to backup. You can get rid of titles, long credit endings, and completely backup and entire DVD to your Hard Drive. You can also compress audio, delete extra languages, in fact you can completely re-author an entire DVD! When used with DVD burning software such as Nero it is a breeze to backup your DVD collection.
