Need Help making a back up DVD for the "Break up"

The size of the DVD is 6.8 GB so I cant use CD clone or Nero to make a back up. (I only have 4.7 blank DVDs)

I tried DVD shrink, DVD decrypter and Alcohol 120% to make a back up/image but they all gave error. I went and installed the latest version of AnyDVD and with that installed I tried to make a back up copy using DVD shrink and DVD decrypter but they both failed again. How does ANYDVD work to help me to make a back up copy of this DVD? What should I do?

Hi Nike77 you may want 2 tey the DvDFab Gold v program. Here is a link 2 it You may need 2 turn off anydvd. And the others 2 use this program right. I have use this Gold program and it will shrink the disk down 2 a dvd-5 (4.7g) and it will burn it all at one time no need 2 use other burnning software 2 fit on a dvd-5 (4.7g)

I would download a program called DVDFab Decrypter and try that first. It is FREE and should handle almost all new movies:

You can try Full Disc mode first and then try opening it up in DVD Shrink. If that doesn’t work, you could try the Main Movie option and again try to open it in DVD Shrink.

If for some reason DVDFab Decrypter does not work, you could install the RipIt4Me / DVD Decrypter / FixVTS combo.

It works with the DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink that you should have already installed, which many of us do. It is a front-end for DVD Decrypter that handles the new protections, and does a great job.

If you already have DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink installed, all you need to do is go to the RipIt4Me site and download their installer and then run it:

If you install it, it should make an icon on your desk. Just run from that icon, follow the wizard, answer yes to everything and it should work ok.

Once you are done ripping the disk to a VIDEO_TS folder on the hard drive, you can use another free program called ImgBurn to create the final DVD if you wish. Here’s how:

You can download ImgBurn here:

BTW, you would probably want to remove AnyDVD temporarily while testing these other programs so they don’t interfere with each other.

Good luck.

The easiest way for me to backup a dvd is the combo of clonedvd and anydvd from Since you already have anydvd -you just have to install clonedvd which will compress it to fit on a 4.7 gig dvd while anydvd takes out the copy protection.
Good luck.

The DVDFab can actually copy it to the hard drive but is there anyway for it to convert it into an image file on the drive so I can directly burn it? How do I burn it once it’s on HD since it turns them into Audio files and Video files…

I noticed if I wanted to copy it with DVDfab I need to buy the full version

First, DVDFab Decrypter is FREE and is all you need to rip a DVD to the hard drive without copy protection.

If you wish, you can buy the Gold or Platinum version, which are both good products. But the Decrypting code is the same for all 3 products, free, gold and platinum.

Second, once you have the VIDEO_TS folder on the hard drive, you can burn it with either Nero as a DVD Video project, or a free program called ImgBurn:

Here is a guide on how to burn VIDEO_TS folders directly with ImgBurn:

So, you should be able to do the ripping and burning without spending a dime, thanks to some very cool people who make their stuff available for free.

If you need any further help, just ask. :slight_smile:

Yes thanks. I copied it using DVDFab but had to shrink it since it was still 6.8 GB so I went and opened the Video TS file using DVD shrink, shrunk it with that and then burned it on the 4.7 GB DVD. I didn’t realize what was the point of having Audio TS.

DVDFab however is gold. It’s basically all you need to rip any DVD.

By the way does DVD shrink compromise the video quality? If so is there a better program that would shrink the content without compromising the quality so much?

With DVD Shrink, if you use Deep Analysis and Quality Enhancement at the default, you should get very good quality. DVD Shrink is still the champ in that area.
