I have around 50 dvd’s I would like to burn to dvd-r for backup purposes, incase scratches or anything of the sort occurs.
Currently, I just use dvd shrink to rip and shrink then use nero to burn to disc. Very straightforward and easy… But most of the time the quality is only 50-70%
Im wondering, if theirs a program that is better, that would make the quality better, even if only slight. The program has to be relatively easy to use, or atleast have a guide to guide me through it.
If dvd shrink is best, does deep analysis make any difference in quality?
I am only burning to 4.7 gb dvd-r
I doubt dvd shrink is the best only alternative to buying would sound more reasonable. You notice that flaws when you compress movie you loose quality in playback when you use dvdshrink. What really more or less is the speed you burn at-usually half the media rated speed and the media type aka Verbatim you use and also don’t multitask when your backing your dvd as this becomes a system hog on your computer resources and all hardware involved in the backup process-so when you do burn let it finish it’s job before doing anything this will insure a more accurate and complete burn. For burns that match originals dvd format you should try CloneCD or CloneDVD as those two software will make a 1:1 or in the case of CloneDVD will also shrink the format to match dvd5 format. But if they are copy protected as in CSS-I have Anydvd HD just for that process to decrypt the protection and then I use one of the two mention software to backup the dvd and store away the originals. But those 3 software have 21 days trials before you have to purchase them-of which I own 3 of them and to me was worth the money spent. And the company does offer a discount when more then one is purchased at certain time-besides their regular discount they offer. But I will leave this decision for you to make yourself. Also I would mention there is also dvdfab HD a free version of the dvdfab Plat that only does dvd9 to dvd9 and plat will-paid version-will do either dvd5 or dvd9 to either dvd9 or dvd5. Those are the two software companies I would recommend you take a look at and decide what best fits your purchase power and needs.
