How to Copy DVD to Jump Drive
First step is to download the software. You can download DVD Shrink 3.2 from Softpedia.com. It is just a 1MB file. After downloading the software install it.
Step 1 - Insert the video DVD into the DVD drive of your computer. Also insert your USB jump drive and make sure it is detected.
Step 2 - Run DVD Shrink software.
Step 3 – Now click on Open DVD Disc and your DVD drives will be automatically selected by the software. Select the video DVD and click OK. Then DVD Shrink software will display the video files inside the DVD after analyzing it. This may take several minutes depending on the size of the DVD video.
Step 4 (Optional) – Now if you want to compress your DVD, you can select Custom Ratio from the Compression Settings which is on the right hand side. Then move the bar so that you have the desired compression ratio. For an example if you want a DVD video with 3500MB then move the bar until it shows 3500MB.
Step 5 – Click Backup to start the actual copying process. Now you can select several options. If you want to copy the video DVD to jump drive as an image file you can select ISO Image File from Select backup target drop down menu. If DVD video has any regional restrictions, you may remove them by checking the Region Free option at DVD Region tab. You may set Quality Settings and Burn Settings too. Select the Options tab and you can be alerted when the process is finished by checking the option ‘Play sound when complete’.
Step 6 – Now click on Browse under the Select target folder for DVD output files options. Here you can select where to save your DVD video files. Since you need to copy a video DVD to a jump drive, you have to browse to your jump drive. Then click OK to start the copying process. Copying may take some time. Generally it takes about 15 - 20 minutes to copy a 4GB DVD to a flash drive. But it can vary.
