Hi,
I am new to the forum, but have a question. Has anyone rented movies from Block Buster or any other place than burn them onto an empty DVD-R. You know how some movies from there are not exactly capable of fitting on a 4.7 GB DVD-R. Is there anywayz we can buy the DVD, put it in our DVD-RW and remove the extras so it is able to fit on a DVD-R. Or, do official releases use 4.7 GB discs as well since they have 2 CD's. What's the big secret? What kind of discs do they use and am I able to burn some movies from there onto an empty DVD-R as I can't find few movies I need.

Regards,
DiRect

Couldn't you also use IFOEdit?

Hi,
Are blockbuster movies serial protected? I hear that from a lot of people. They say that when you rent a movie from BlockBuster, you can't burn it. Is that true? I'm not trying to create an AVI file, I just want to take off the extras and burn.

It prolly was, but the whole point of a forum is to politely guide new (or old) people in the right direction. A forum isnt just a database of crap, its fun to interact with people, otherwise we could all just go read a book for all the answers we need. :)

I have never tried a blockbuster movie, but one odd thing i have noticed about their movies:

I have a freind whos DVD player wont play blockbuster movies, but it will play svcd's. The only thing i can figue is there must be some kinda protection on the disc's. And yes, his player is new......still wierd tho.

I used to use dvd2one. DVDShrink give you better quality.

You can rip out other languages to free up space and get better quality. Can take out stuff like extras too.

I would "strongly" recomend " CloneDVD", its only like 3MB and you can get it from Ares, Kazaa, Bittorrent, etc. Plus, its easy to instal, and even easier to use, in part because "it takes care of compression" you don't do a thing, just click next, next, next, and so on.

And About Searching instead of asking here: Well, first, its like filesharing, if we don't share what we know, there will be less parts on the web to get info, cus, frankly, when I search, I usualy get to a forum where someone else had the same truble.
and second, I think that you also might find technical info on your problem, but some times is helpfut to hear advice from someone that went trugh the proble itself, you might say, personal experience. But well, that is just me.

U can do the same thing with DVD2ONE. TO: Direct- yes you can copy a blockbuster movie u just need DVD Decrypter and it will remove the protection once you put the disc in the dvd burner.
