MenuShrink is a small application that lets you compress DVD motion menus by turning them into still menus with or without audio. Best of all, is entirely completely free!
In many cases, the space savings is tremendous. For some of the Star Wars movies (R1 versions), the main menus take nearly 800MB, and can easily be shrunk to about 40MB (keeping the audio).

Many DVDs use motion menus (i.e., animated menus where buttons appear in front of a segment of video that usually loops). If you're having problems shrinking your DVD with DVD Shrink because it's too big to begin with, this tool might help you. It will turn your motion menus into still menus (where the buttons are overlaid over a still image), with or without audio.
