DVD Shrink is a lightweight, freeware, windows application that makes DVD burning easy. If you have a DVD burning drive, you can rip and burn a DVD with ease.
DVD Shrink takes you from start to finish with just one piece of software and using just one drive (if that is all that you have). Of course, if you have two optical drives in your computer, say, a CD-RW and a DVD-RW, you can rip an image with one drive, load a disc in your DVD-RW, then burn the image from the hard drive to the second drive when it is done ripping from the first drive.
In addition to its ease-of-use, DVD Shrink lets you burn discs as region-free by first decoding their encryption, then burning an image WITHOUT a region code embedded in the files. In other words, you can buy a Region 2 DVD from the UK, and play it in a Region 1 USA DVD player by first backing it up using DVD Shrink.
