Default file compression help

i just found out about dvddecrypter and i used it to backup my chappelle show but one disc was 7 gigs... is there a program (sw/adw free) that can compress it to a decent size while keeping a good amount of quality

Hmm ... seven gigs
Probably won't be able to compress it enoguh to fit on one CD
But winzip are a good one
I've never used compression becausei hardly ever use it so i am not totally sure whether it is spyware or adware free, although it probably is.

Yes..

use DVD Decrypter to rip the files from your DVD.. use the "Mode" menu then select File..
Rip the dvd into VOb files..

Now use DVDshrink..
click the "Open Files" and it will analyize. Make any changes and then click the "backup" button.It will now start to shrink the dvd onto a normal dvd,.

I have used AutoGK... great program! you can make compressed avi files from your decrypted dvd, unfortunately as far as I know you can't play avi's on dvd players, so it's only good if you want to watch them on your pc or something.

Thats why you would use DVDShrink..

It will shrink a dvd9 to a dvd5 with no quality or auido loss.
