That's kind of depressing.Shrink is so nice with Nero. It's about as close to one click backups as you get. I'm just trying to find the easiest solution under linux......

You got it man, though from my searching it looks like it'snot happening. I was hoping that Shrink through wine could at least rip to image for burning in one step.

has anyone looked into reauthoring the dvd to split it into two dvd without having to compress files. If you ripped the dvd to the harddrive you have the .VOB files, how tough is it to make a dvd from your .VOB files.
