I’m slowly but surely backing up my small DVD collection onto DVD-R disks.
My plan is to keep the original DVDs in storage as master disks, and to only play the back-up disks in my DVD player.
Today I started backing up the five disk set of the Blackadder TV Series.
I guess the original disks are two layered, because each disk will hold six episodes, but I can only get 4 episodes onto a DVD-R disk, without compression.
I tried just burning four episodes to a disk, but then it looks like the only way to get to episodes 2-4 is to use the “Next” Â»| button, which is pretty annoying, since it takes six clicks to get through each episode.
I wonder if I could use the software I already have on my computer to create a very simple menu that would allow me to choose which episode I want to view.
Here’s a list of what I have on my machine now:
[li]DVD Shrink 3.2
[/li][li]DVD Fab 5
[/li][li]Nero Smart Start
[/li][li]Rip it 4 me
I don’t need or want to make anything fancy. No grahpics. No Music. No animation. Just a simple text list of the program titles and buttons to click.
If I’m going to need a new program to create the menus, I’d prefer a free program, because I’m on a very limited income.
