Try DVD shrink.

If you only need to compress a tiny amount, try to zip it, if necessary with high compression ratio. Might take a lot of time.

I really hate that, the fact you are constantly limited with max.size ... honestly, I would buy a Dual Layer, at least.

BluRay is even better but expensive

Using any one of a a number of different programs allows you to remove CCaptioning, unwanted languages, unused audio tracks, alternate scenes, etc. No need to go into DLayer disks.

Yes, it's an option, but that solution is a data-loss solution ... if threadstarter is OK with that, he needs to select what he needs to throw away.

I am assuming the OP is ripping commercial DVDs. There is so much crap on there you don't even use that you don't need to have a loss of quality or scenes. The more time you take with those programs the better the results. If the file almost fits then maybe something has already been done.

that would not be advisable.
nor should you be supported if you are ripping commercial dvds which is against federal law

folks here should know that.

wanderer, you are correct of course. There is an exception to that, I believe. In the case of making a archival copy of a commercial DVD that is legally owned.

Good point OtheHill. Let's hope that is sano's motivation.
