Hi I am relatively new to the forum.
I have aToshiba notebook, intel pent 4, 512 RAM, 1.9 ghz.
I have the new dual layer BenQ 162I external burner that I recently bought.
I have been using the purchased "any dvd" and 1 Click Dvd Copy, being a relative Noob and everything has been going fine for backups. With the 1 Click Copy program it takes 20 - 30 minutes upon the initiliaztion for the concert that I am backing up and then an added 20 - 30 minutes for the actual burning. I am pleased with that and will continue this fast ,easy ,user friendly copy to copy and compression.
I have used Dvd Shrink on a couple of occasions as I did not know if 1 Click Dvd Copy could do such a lenghty/large data concert and of course Any Dvd was running in the back ground but it has taken me 1 hr for analyzing and 1 hr for the encoding and then another hour for the burning.(Nero)
I have all of the settings for quality and so I know that may be the reason that the program takes so long to burn. The backup is very good but it just takes so long.
I am considering looking at Elby's Clone Dvd , I understand that it will copy any size of movie/concert for back-up.
Am I wrong in this assumption? Can a member make other suggestions of what to look at that will do the job of Shrink but not take so much time??
I am asking if I will not have to use DVD Shrink with other programs that may have this built in shrink feature and if Elby's Clone DVD software is a program that will do the job of Shrink faster?? and as well burn??
I would appreciate comments. I don't believe that my 1 Click Dvd Copy will do enough compression for such large movies/concerts.
I just want a really good program where I don't have to go through such a lengthy process of analyzing and encoding and then the burning. I find 3 hrs consumes a whole evening to do 1 copy and my 1 click program is over in a matter an hour with its process. However as I said earlier I don't believe it has the ability of Dvd Shrink even though it does compress.
I don't mind spending the money for something that will do the job and save time.
I look forward to replies, thankyou
