    Here is what you need:

    Nero Ultra Edition includes Recode 2
    DVD Decryptor

    This is what i use, works wonders. But those stated above are also good.

    yeah if you got a 1x dvd burner.

    full dvd takes 28 min on a 2x, 15 min on a 4x, i don't have an 8x, but would imagine about 8 min

    15 / 20 min to copy to hd dependant on compression

    Amen Bruther best dvd copying software I have seen. What I like about it is you can shrink the DVD down to fit a 4 Gig Disk. You can also take off subtititle and languages.
    I have only ran into one or two DVD's that won't copy due to some type of encription, but 99% of the DVD's I have seen will copy.. and it is free!!!!

    that sounds nice! I have dvd x copy now -from the imesh- and it works but unfortunately I need two 4.7gig discs to get a movie that fits on one disc. It was my understanding that the way they burn or encode discs -dual layer something or other- is not available as of yet on the commercial market. Are you saying that with dvd shrink I can get 1 movie on one 4.7gig disc?

    Yes...

    With DVDshrink you remove the un-needed menus, subtitles, foreign language tracks and re-author the DVD at a different compression level (which I GUARANTEE you won't notice) to make it fit on a standard 4.7g blank disk.

    What are you taking about?
    12 minutes to copy DVD to hard drive.
    About 30 to 50 minutes to compress the video so it fits on single layer DVD
    15 minutes to burn the image to a DVD
    That’s about 1 ½ hours.

    Tell me about it I'm up to over 150 flicks with DVDshrink

    I usually go to the video rental store on a friday evening, rent 3, watch 1 and copy all 3... that way I have 2 more movies to watch later.

    Works for me and it's so easy my kid also copies movies like it's going out of style.

    you have a slow ass pc if that's the case

    here is my exact pc - http://products.gateway.com/products...d=m675x&seg=hm

    8x dvd read, 2x write dvd rw drive

    3.0 processor with only 512 ram

    using dvd shrink it's 24 min tops to rip / compress to the hard drive. no compression it's 15 min using either shrink or dvd decrypter. then it's another 28 to burn using nero - 52 min max. most cases i'm lookin at 45

    let's just say i have a lot of spare time on my hands. rent 3, copy them to hard drive first before compressing to save time so i can mail them out the same day i get them.

    as for labels, check here : http://www.cdcovers.cc/ - not just DVD labels either. xbox, ps2, etc

    Buy an epson stylist R200... use printable disc... and you can do color printing right on the disc... no labels..

    yup, i buy my labels from ebay where they're the cheapest. i have a simple label program that's set up and prints it perfect. i'm even using a hp deskjet 722c - old school - and it looks fine. now of course if i wanted to make it real sharp, i could use a photo printer.

    Yes as Red said, you can take out the subtitles, languages, DVD shrink will even tell you when your file size is too large before you start ripping the file. I love it. A buddy of mine used to use DVDX and same problem he would have to always burn his DVD's on two disks. Sucked. With DVD shrink on some DVD's you can take out 2 channel surround and only copy the 5.1 dolby if you wanted to. So many options with DVD shrink.
    It does take about 1 hour or more depending on the size of the movie, to rip, copy, and burn, but I just let it go, and go watch the other movie while that one is burning! LOL! Great program!
