well, that is cool,, thanks K56 for the tip,,,, I did the image to hard drive, "then" wrote to BD disc,,,, got like for like 21gb data on blank media,, and am playing it now on stand alone BD player,,,, looks 'great' !!!!!
There is a glitch with watching BD back-up on pc BD reader / player, all 'skippy', but it is perfect* on table top BD player.
I made a back-up of my BD disc Capt. Phillips before I had BD media,, so I converted it to DVD,,,, and considering how much it was compressed,,, it looks pretty good,,, the only thing that was not there , was the captions on screen when the bad guys were talking,,,, maybe an image burn to hd,, then to DVD would fix that,,,,???????
I have the BD set of HBO's Pacific,,, I watch it every couple days,, so I will back that up soon,,,, the first disc is 37gb,,, [ or close to that ], I like 'all' the add-ons ,,, Blune Cloner 4 would not shrink that to a 25gb BD disc,,, [ for some reason ? ] maybe,,, doing the image burn first, will let that happen as well,, ???? I just got some 50GB BD media,, so I can go either way,,,, will my eyeball see a difference between an original 30 plus BD display shrunk to 25gb,,, vs a full 30 plus BD placed on the spacious 50gb media ??
Thanks again for the help,,,,,
sorry if this question is wandering from LG hardware chatter,,,,,
p.s. I did get the IMG-Burn program,,, but I tried Blue Cloner again copying files from hd,,, and it seems fine,,,, so IMG is in the bullpen, just in case.
