Recording Films Tutorial

Objetive: of and original DVD to make a private copy (whenever the Law of your country allows it) without losing quality (no Divx, no cuts, all the options, etc) doesn´t take responsibility of others uses that the user can give this tutorial

Software used in this Tutorial:

DVD Shrink 3.1 for the first step (to ripe). Free Dvd Shrink Download.

Nero Burning Rom 6 for the second step (to burn). Free Nero Download.

The complete version of the programs is DVD Shrink and Nero Burning Rom

We explain the method in two steps; first to ripe, soon to burn. Perhaps it is faster to do it everything of blow. I make in two blows and thus saving in virgin’s DVDs.


I) To introduce the original DVD in the reader of DVDs. The is one who forgets...

II) To open DVD Shrink 3.1. We will see the following thing. To open DVD Shrink 3.1. We will see the following thing.

Throughout this first process we will both use bellboys marked with arrows in the image of down.



III) We will puncture the button of more to the left: “Open Disc”. It will appear the window of selection of film




We will select the origin of the film. In my house I have two possible holes where to fit a film to him to this computer: D and E. In this case I have put it in E, will appear the name there of the film in original version. We selected and “Ok”.

IV) We will hope to that the analysis finishes. This one is enough short: to me less than two minutes. (It is worth… there it puts 4 minutes and 19 seconds but soon it goes more express…)

Maybe you can have some preoblem in this proccess, it could be because of strong protections in the Dvd for Dvd Shrink. Try this Dvd Decypter tutorial.




V) When it finishes displays the screen to us of contents. Here we will say to him that it interests to us of the Dvd and that no. To the left (Arrow dark orange) I always select the whole Dvd (all the noticeable contents). You only watch that the green bar in no case happens to be red (where the clearest arrow). That would mean that all the contents in a virgin Dvd do not fit.




VI) We will give the button “BackUp”. He is noticeable in the first image. The arrow of the right. It appears to us the screen “Back Up Dvd”:




Not to touch the one of above is the recorder. The one of down it is the folder where we will keep the archives temporarily. To me selects by defect the folder to me I kept the previous film. We prefer that me it keeps it in a new folder and I give small folder that has noticeable with the small arrow. If not, because you use the key “Browse” and you mark an empty location to him.

Attention: here we chose also the DVD region (second tab) fit it according to where you are.

REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland

Accept and we will see this:




Another screen of these of progress. And this hard one really. I am going away to smoke. If you do not smoke, perhaps this it is the moment for share this tutorial with a friend. You dont worry, that you will not leave this page, will open a new window.

Maybe you can have some preoblem in this proccess too, because of strong protections in the Dvd for Dvd Shrink. Try the Dvd Decypter tutorial.

When it finishes, it expels the original Dvd and it displays this screen:




The virgin DVD is requesting. We give “Cancel”. “Are you sure you want Cancel”: “yes” and leaves this other to us:




It has not recorded it in one virgin, but it “to ripe” and we have the ready archives to copy in the folder that we had said to him.

And aim of the first step. You close the Dvd Shrink. If ask something to you, that not to everything.


I) We introduce the virgin DVD in the recorder. Of this I do not put drawing to you.

II) We opened to Nero Burning ROM. Not the Smart Start, nor the simple version. This:




In 1) we requested Dvd to him, in 2) we say to him that it will be 3 Dvd-Video and we give 3) “New”. The options we can review them but those that come by defect they are worth. If you want him you can put name to the Dvd or to add to him dates…

In the following screen, the left the virgin Dvd is represented and the right our PC. First we opened to the left, in the 1) folder of VIDEO_TS. Soon we looked for the right, in 2), the folder where we have kept the archives, we opened it, we selected all to them and we dragged them, 3), to the left:




Once dragged to the left, it solely is to give the button to burn:




In the following screen, give to the button “Burn”. We could choose the speed of recording. It is possible to be lowered so that the recording is safer (than there are less possibilities of than the virgin Dvd gets annoyed to us). When it finishes, to give him to “Done” and will expel the Dvd. We will say him that not to everything to close Nero (asks if we want to us to keep registry from the created Dvd) and already is.
