You can use DVD flick and turn your Video File into a dvd. Its fairy easy, make your your video file is compatible and burn it. here is a link DVD Flick they have a little guide on how yo use if you get confused.

Thanks. I have DVD Flick, but I need to get the original DVD video into my computer. I used DVD Shrink and it seemed to copy it, but there is no way I can find to get it onto my hard drive. I've tried all the menus, etc.

If the above post is right and it's an standard unprotected DVD then using DVD Shrink 3.2 should be simple. Shrink wouldn't be my first choice but because you have it already it'll do. I don't know how shrink handles other DVD's recorded with Camcorders or PVR's, it would depend on there format.

1. Open DVD Shrink.

2. Click Open Disc and select the drive/disc.

3. Click Ok and wait for it to analyze.

4. In the toolbar make sure "Full Disc" is selected if it has menus you want to keep.
- Selecting Re-Author will allow you to copy only the titles you want by draging them into the left window.

5. Click Backup on the toolbar.

6. From the "Select Backup Target" drop down box select ISO or Hard Drive Folder.
- Hard Drive Folder will save it as dvd files that can imported to other programs for editing.
- ISO is easy for straight copying.
- Recommend leaving "Create Video_TS & Audio_TS subfolders" ticked.

7. Select folder to save files in and click ok.

Now you should have a single ISO you can burn to a new disc or a folder with two subfolders, Video_TS & Audio_TS, where you should find, in the Video_TS folder, a number of files with the extension BUP, IFO and VOB. Heres a link to give you an idea of what these files are Doom9.net - The Definitive DVD Backup Resource

You can now open the files in a different program for editing.

A short DVD shouldn't want any compressing but for reference, when you open the disc and click a title in the left window compression options show up on the right along with checkboxes allowing you to remove Audio tracks and Subtitles.

You want to make sure no compression is being applied unless your copying a Dual Layer DVD to a Single Layer DVD. Do this by selecting the Disc name at the top of the left window and in the right window it should say "Automatic 100%", if not select "No Compression" where it says Automatic.

If working with Dual Layer then go to Edit -> Preferences and change the DVD target size to DVD-9.

H U R R A H ! Your clear. concise instructions were exactly what I needed.
All the so-called "Guides" went into myriad details of everything except HOW to DO it.
It is so typical of programmer types. They tell you all the wonderful things their program will do and how they developed it. Only a very few people really care about all of that. We (I) need to know "Do 1, 2, 3 etc.", just as you explained. Who would have known I had to click "Backup". I wanted to COPY, not BACKUP.
Thanks, thanks, thanks ! ! !

Well if you have a physical DVD, and you want it in your Hard Drive it makes sense. Your Backing it up, and from that backup you can make copies.

I'm using win 7 64 bit and it writes video_ts files to a dvd, but the dvd won't play on my dvd player (not blue ray). On my old laptop using XP the Roxio S/W makes video_ts dvd's fine. Why won't win 7? I've tried deleting the ini file but that doesn't fix the porblem.

Any ideas?
