hmmm, I joined the forums at AfterDawn.com and have been asking a butt-load of questions. I downloaded Dvd Decrypter as well as DVD43...but Nero I assume is my default burning program unless I uninstall it. With dvd decrypter I tried mr and mrs smith and the bytes were 7,930,300,416 and it should be no more than 4,718,592,000 bytes. I cannot figure out fo rthe life of me even with reading the guide how to get the numbers down so it will fit on a disk. I understand that dvd shrink 3.2.15 will compress the files automatically in order to get it to fit on a disk and then go from there. God I have a headache!!!
