How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds - want to know How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds?

i am a newb to burning dvd's and i just got a dvd burner. i had success backing up my first dvd "family guy:stewie the untold story"... it worked perfectly. so then i try to back up some other dvds and all the other dvds are like 7 gigs and wont fit on the dvd that i put the first one on. are their bigger dvds i have to buy to put these movies on or is there a program that i could use to remove the info that is not needed, or maybe make the file smaller or something. ive been using dvd43 in conjuction with alcohol 120.

and another noob question... is there a way i can actually use the cd and dvd images ive saved on my comp using alcohol 120? like i tried saving the play disc of quake IV with alcohol 120 and then using the virual drive to run it, so i dont need the cd in the drive yah know. so yeah can i execute the discs i have saved with the virtual drive or not?

Re: im a noob

A good combination for your movie editing would be Slysoft's combo pkg. of AnyDVD (decodes the encryption so you can make the backup) and CloneDVD2, which lets you remove quite of bit of what you don't want, and then compress it to fit onto a Single Layer (SL) media, and it'll probably compress it to ~ 4.3 gb.

If you have the image (.ISO) file, you should be able to "mount" the image in a virtual drive with something like Daemon Tools and play it fine without having to burn the image to CD or DVD.

Re: How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

Not forgetting of course DVD shrink the free program that can compress it all onto one DVD should you want to go down that road? You will have to consider if the slight quality drop is worth it.
If you use the search you will find the relative merits discussed many times.
BTW welcome and best wishes.

What I am trying to achieve is a bit different. I wish to take the bonus sections such as interviews and behind the scenes extras off of several dvd's and put them onto one dvd
(Collection of mystery films)
Is this possible?

Re: How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

DVDShrink will allow you to select titles from the Extras in ReAuthor mode. You can preview each title to make sure you have the exact ones that you wish to save. Double click on the title in the list on the right side to get it into the compilation that you are making. Hit Backup to save the compilation of titles.

You should get a complete dvd video structure out of Shrink if you keep the default settings.

To combine the various clips from different dvds, you'll need to use another tool. Personally, I'd save each clip separately using Shrink, then run the video through Vob2Mpg, to make each one an mpeg file. Then import the various clips into AVStoDVD to make a new dvd and make a menu so that you can select each clip individually, or just hit the Play All button if you want to watch them sequentially.

DVDShrink
Vob2Mpg
AVStoDVD

Neither Shrink nor Vob2Mpg will degrade the quality of the clips. If the compilation is small enough to fit the target disk without compression, AVStoDVD can be set to not reencode dvd compliant video, so you should be able to retain original quality.

Actually, you can use Shrink for that, if the DVD content is on your HD. Just load the next DVD in the 'DVD Browser' Tab and select the title(s) you want.

Very interesting Kerry

Is AVStoDVD able to make menus?

Yes, you can make simple menus in AVStoDVD.

Good to know about importing other dvds Olyteddy. Not something I've tried in Shrink. I'd still prefer to make a menu for this type of thing though, so you can more easily find the individual clips.

Well I love DVDFab, and I do Movie Only and burn to Single Layer and Dual Layer Verbatim Discs. You can compress it down to a Single Layered 4.7 Disc, but I enjoy the Full Resolution. I like watching my Back-ups more than the Originals, the Movie starts right away and I don't have to sit through all the Junk.

I think you wanted to Stream from your HDD, so if you have a Media Player that Streams VOB Files, you can do that too. You can also convert the VOB Files to Mpeg, and Stream those.

DVD Shrink quickly and easily removed the bonus features
Created audio and video folders, though the audio folder looks empty
Now I just need to be able to put all the bonus features back onto a new dvd
Any program suggestions?

Just use DVDShrink on the full DVD again but this time do it the other way around.

Or in other words remove all the other content and keep the extras.

The 'AUDIO' folder is usually empty BTW.

HTH.

Great stuff, guys! I appreciate the help!
Last (hopefully) hurdle I have to overcome now is making a menu for all of the items when burning them to a new DVD
I'm all ears
(Funny to look at, but great for spy missions)

Re: How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

For a menu you might try a software named TitleWriter.
For a purpose like yours I created a very small black .jpg fpr the menu background.
I then use the text for the menu "button".
There is a small thumbnail but it is black so you can't see it.
This post is an example before I decided to use the black .jpg.

Been a long time since I last used TitleWriter..
It's also been a while since I last used DVDflick, but IIRC it'll create a menu w/o re-encoding a compliant stream(Mpeg2) ..
Slightly off-topic, I finally got AVStoDVD to work correctly for me under Win 7, so maybe that's worth a try as suggested..

Re: How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

I've done OK with AVStoDVD on a menu but TitleWriter is faster & can do a very small size menu. No reencoding.
For some reason the suggested software I have never got to work on my OS is Vob2Mpg.

Re: How to burn 7gb dvd onto 4.3 GB dvds

That's odd cholla, I've used Vob2Mpg on XP, Vista (32 and 64bit) and Win 7 64bit. Never had any issues with it, though I prefer the old style vobset mode rather than the newer ifo mode. Still have the option to use the older style and that's what I use.

It's probably just a conflict I didn't track down . I will give it a try again when I have time.
If I remember correctly it goes through the motions but doesn't create any files .

Just thought I would update on Vob2Mpgv3 . I downloaded the latest version & installed it.
When I first tried it in Vobset mode (the one I wanted to use). I got an error & it didn't create a file.
Name:  V2MP01.jpg
Views: 2007
Size:  9.7 KB
I then manually created the output folder , hit Start again & it worked fine.
So I guess I have a new tool I can use when needed.
