Thread: How to burn a large DVD to DVD

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    I have been burning a few DVDs lately with no probs.

    Using DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and Nero.

    However I have a very large DVD (8 gigs) that I am having trouble with.

    I have been able to Rip it to my hard drive.

    But when I tried to Burn it to a DVD-RW it said the DVD was not big enough even though I was using Automatic Compression (at about 49%)

    I then tried again using a DVD+R DL double layer DVD and that did not work either.

    I would like to be able to backup the whole movie.

    But I suppose I could remove some of the extra's.

    I have heard of backing up image files but do not know much about this.

    Or is it my version of Nero ?

    Or is it my media ?

    Kind Regards

    I did one once that size i used dvd shrink and let it shrink to hard drive then i used dvd shrink the second time and it shrunk it enough to copy to disk.

    Try DVDFab Platinum to copy the DVD as it will automatically shrink down the size to fit on your media.

    Thanks guys

    I managed to do it using DVDshrink by removing the 5 to 1 audio file

    I did try using blank double layer DVD, but my Nero did not seem to like it.

    It indeed could be your version of Nero. I have a method of taking the movie only files from a Pal iso and loading them into Nero Vision and turning them into an Ntsc video (no menus). The place I got the method from said to use Nero 7.2 or later but for the heck of it I used Nero 6.6 on another machine rather than transfer the data onto the machine with Nero 7. I went thru all the steps exactly the same and when I came to the end Nero 6 said theres not enough room. Since this never happens with Nero 7 I have to assume that 6 is changing something (using its own codec for the audio or video) and therefore expanding the disk size.

    I transfered the iso to the other PC and Nero 7 did the files just fine. So Nero 6 wants to change the files and in the process expands the disk size but probably after many complaints they did away with it in Nero 7.
