    "I open up Intervideo"

    Intervideo is a software publisher. What is the name of the PROGRAM you are trying to use to burn the DVD?

    You have to place ALL DVD-related files (.IFOs, .BUPs, .VOBs) into a FOLDER named VIDEO_TS - and then burn...

    I am using Intervideo DVD Copy, and the newest version of DVD Shrink.
    I put DVD in burner
    Open DVD shrink
    open disc, analyze, then back up to a dvd shrink data folder(VIDEO_TS)
    Once its done I close shrink, open up dvd copy but when I select the VIDEO_TS folder that has all the files, it tells me Content not supported!
    All the files are IFO'S, BUP'S, VOB'S in the folder.

    Am I using DVD shrink wrong?

    Default I don't know

    Intervideo DVD copy,
    but if use DVDshrink it is more simple use other burning program.

    I am confident with CloneDVD. You can check (before burning) with the first or second option (but without proceeding on).
    then vhen you are confident you will go to 3░ option (copy from file) and burn your DVD.
    Clone DVD will advise you if there is something of wrong in your files.

    It is also possible to use Nero, (i did it with success) , but it is not good named for DVD burning.

    Bye

    You might also consider using DVD Decrypter in conjunction with DVD Shrink. I decrypt all files in file mode, then use DVD shrink to shrink and burn. Very easy and no coasters yet.

    Is DVD Decrypter freeware, or where can I get it from?

    DVD Decrypter is freeware and you can download it at:
    www.dvddecrypter.com or www.doom9.org. Decrypter is , in my opinion, the very best decrypter around. I use it with DVD Shrink and I haven't had a failure yet.
    Good luck

    I used DVD decrypter, then shink. I can watch the entire movie from the hard drive, but when I go to burn it with "DVD COPY" it says files not supported! Why is that?

    If you decrypt the whole movie in file mode, it will select a decrypt folder by default. Open DVD Shrink, select open files then shrink the movie, I use auto compression..it will automatically burn the DVD. I use DVD Shrink 3.1.4. Leave everything on default and try again. Don't worry about watching movie from hard drive..You are going to concentrate on decryping, shrinking and burning. By the way..Do you have Nero burner?

    kezell,

    Don't waste your money on buying commercial software.

    Download the freeware IMG Classic v. 0.91.1 from Coujo.de and if you don't have DVDDecrypter v. 3.1.9.0, get it. If you have Xp, you will not need an aspi layer (but many report better results with Adaptec aspi layer installed, v. 4.71.2 for XP, you would need to download the winzip.com beta file extractor to unzip the aspi and you can also do a search and download "force aspi" for the non-common installation problem).

    DVDdecrypter will burn the 'Shrink files after IMGClassic converts such files to an ISO image.

    After installation of programs (and aspi if not using SPTI), do the 'Shrink, then close 'Shrink, then Start up IMGClassic and then a few to several mouse clicks later Classic automatically converts the image to an ISO and starts 'Decrypter to burn.

    All freeware including aspi ayer and beta file extractor is a free download..

    I agree wholeheartedly with Quality's Proof. I have never purchased commercial software and never will. I would be very suprised if anything was better than Decrypter or Shrink. It takes some practice, and I use(d) +RWs so I can erase and start over.
    Good luck

    Congratulations!

    From all, you are, of course, very welcome.

    Now show your friends how to do the dvd movie back-ups so they can save money (commercial software) and buy more dvd movies.
