Default Software similar to DVD Shrink??

I have DVD Shrink and love it, but I want to install Windows 7 and I am afraid that Shrink may not work with the new OS. Anyone know? Also, is there any other software available that will shrink a DVD movie so that if copied, it will fit onto a regular DVD disc and do the other things Shrink does? Thanks!

Why not try before thinking about alternatives?

Compatibility mode may also help IF the desired program will not run/start in the first place, but many tools do run absolutely fine so dont worry and give them a try.

Tried installing and starting Shrink on Win7 / 64 and it worked.

Although according to Forum rules, I cannot give advice on the above mentioned program, this is good, solid advice.

Right click on any setup exe & Run As Administrator is a great tool in Windows 7. If all else fails, there is always Virtual XP within Windows 7. BTW, I am running Dual Boot, XP32/Windows 7 Ultimate 64.

The bad thing with Virtual XP in Win7 is that you only get a CD/DVD reader and can't burn from it.
