This program is well written and definitely worth paying for although I know you can find it online somewhere for free I paid for my copy and I love it. Never had a problem copying old damaged dvd's that I had laying around even a new one that a friend left here and I liked burned perfectly without any problems at all.

I used to use DVD Shrink but that is so out of date. If you are into making copy's of your favorite movies this is what you have to get. I believe if you buy the movie you should have the choice to preserve it but the MPAA doesn't so they drop tactics and encryption on discs but I have found that CloneDVD2 and AnyDVD have worked wonders together, both worth the purchase!

I bought saw III when it came out but I'll try it with andvd tonight.

I've found most of my coasters came from the laser in my old burner dieing.

Hahah damn well I have a brand new DVD-/+RW drive and found that DVD Shrink gave me lots of errors with Saw III.

I went to CloneDVD2 and AnyDVD 4.1.2.5 and it worked perfectly!

It lived half it's life in an external case I would take anywhere, so I wasn't too suprised when it died.

Still writes CD-R/Ws and reads DVDs and CDs Fine, just fails on burning DVDs.

Its sitting aside right now in the same external case, if I need a DVD-ROM on one of my older systems.

I replaced the drive, I really don't feel like swapping out the components on it.

DVD Shrink gives invalid nav structure, even with AnyDVD 6.1.2.5 fixing the puppetlock and the bogus title set as it claims to have found.

Nero Recode however (one of the nero 7 ultra tools) is making an image of it as we speak. Seems DVD shrink is just tempermental with this one, but it wasn't uncopy-able

Edit: Plays when mounted virtually in Daemon Tools
And all on vista!

I'm not wasting a disc to burn a movie I already have. It runs fine in both PowerDVD and WMP 11 w/ AnyDVD not running.

The disclaimer is just to cover my own butt.

Actually I know of a good free one, you'll have to search for it because they upgraded to a program that they now charge for but you can still find the original free version online at places. I had problems with DVDShrink and DVD Decrypter on my copy of tokyo drift.....DVDFab Decrypter had no problems ripping it to my hard drive.

Ive used both clonedvd and anydvd and they are good programs together.
ive used nero which is probably one of the best.

If your into downloading movies which is illegal and shouldnt be done but ive "heard" avitodvd is a great converter for converting and burning in one step.

Have you guys used any programs to convert your movie backups to something like a .avi or .mpg? The straight dvd backups are so big on my hard drive (~5-7GB). I've tried free programs but they were more trouble than they were worth, never got them to work, gave me errors and had terrible interfaces. I've got plenty of space left for now on my 250 gb drive but I'll probably end up just getting a larger one.

I have run across a few of those converters but i havent actually used a full version nor have a used a trail either come to think of it but i have seen quite a few of them.

Try looking at giveawayoftheday.com everyday they have a new full program up for free.
They have those things sometimes.
