There's a plethora of free tools for us Linux users.

There's got to be something out there that doesn't suck for Win32

Good luck!

DVD shrink is a great, free program. As the name implies, you can shrink dvds to fit, i.e. compress or delete material. Very useful for movies.

My daughter keeps asking me how to do this, do you mean commercial DVD's? Copying a DVDR should be drag and drop on any platform.

Putting the 8 or so Gig of data in a big movie onto a 4 Gig or so DVDR losslessly would be a good trick (I know there are now dual layer DVD burners, there weren't for a long time). I honestly have never tried to copy a movie. My son made me copies of "The Prisoner" because I stupidly bought PAL versions. I ended up buying an all region player the re-compressed copies were such do-do.

DVD data copy is built-in. To copy movies (you should own them first! or you are violating copyright) you require a DVD ripper such as Popcorn.

As I said, " I honestly have never tried to copy a movie. " Our household is the one all the vendors dream about. One of my kids coined the term, Payforits

Thanks, I'll tell my daughter to check out Popcorn.
