GOOD DVD burning program

I have one called DVD X Copy that a friend of mine got for me, but ive heard of DVD programs that "compact" it so that some of the longer movies will fit on a normal 120min DVD you buy at the store. Does anybody Know of a good program that will burn DVD's you buy from the store and compact them???

TIA

well, not that i'm endorsing an act such as "copying" DVD, which i'm sure many would agree to be highly illegal in 99% of dvds due to copyright cases.
But if you want to "Backup" a dvd, which is still illegal,
A program called "DVD Shrink" is what can be used.
It reads ANY dvd, and allows you to remove things such as the extras on the dvd, the multiple language options, and/or scenes of the movie. it also shrinks the dvd automatically to fit to the size of the dvd disc inserted.
I found Dvd X Copy to be somewhat useless on most dvds due to they're size like you said..
Once again, I am by no means endorsing the illegal copying of dvds and I am not responsible for any actions taken against any copyright laws.

Another option is actually from the same company that make DVD X Copy...it's their "EXPRESS" version. It allows a feature film to be backed up onto a single dvd. HOwever, it does this by eliminating the dvd extras and menu system and includes the movie itself only. If you're not one to care about extras it might be an option for you.

I have that option on the program i have, but even without the menu and extra features, there is still not enough room for some of the films alone. Thanks though.

dvd shrink burns them straight onto dvd.
well, into a temp folder on your hard drive then onto dvd.
as for the other, what you want is a dvd to vcd convertor. which I am also looking for..

Ok, ive got it shrunk and put in a temp folder, but how do i burn it to a DVD? what software works good for that? I tried using Sonic CD/DVD burner, but it only makes "exact copy" or Data Disk, neither of which is working.

ok, dunno whats going on here, but my dvd shrink, you do:
open disc (it reads the disc, menus etc)
take out the stuff you don't want.
then press Backup, it will ask if you want to backup to your hdd or disc.
and thats it, one "backedup" dvd
