6202 wouldn't compress

Yesterday as I was backing up disney’s UP I ran into a problem. With a verbatim DVD5 disc in the drive, Fab (in customize mode) kept asking for a DVD9 disc. I checked all my settings and they were set for DVD5. The quality level was 95%. The only conclusion I could come too was that the compression feature has stopped working. Am I the only one? I finally got fed up and used a DVD9

Hi Jim,
I didn’t have this problem, ripped then burnt to DVD5, when you opened the program was your quality tab set at DVD 5 ?

Yes it was. I also checked DVD to DVD Default output size and it also was set to DVD5. I’m mystified, but it just would not accept a DVD5 disc. It kept insisting on a DVD9.

Thanks for the suggestion but it didnt work. Fab seems to have lost the ability to compress a movie.

I tried it on another longer than DVD5 and got the same result Here is my log,

The only references I can find governing disc size is bottom left of front page and in settings, Default Output Size, and those are both set to DVD5. are there any other places to change this setting? Any suggestions?

GJ If its my computer how do I fix it, it did backup fine to the DVD9.

Also let me add that if the quality is 100% a DVD5 verbatim works fine

Ok problem solved sort of

Apparently it has too do with extending DVD size beyond lower default size of 4300, I had extended DVD5 to 4600 and DVD9 to 8350. when I set them back to 4300 and 8103, it accepted DVD5 fine even though it was compressing the movie to 70%.
That still seems like a bug in the program though because in the past I have increased the size beyond 4300.

Well this might or might not be worth looking at Jim,
in common setting DVD/ Bluray / write / DVD / write speed recommended / writable media (DVD 5) size / 4300 / DVD9 writable size 8100 / write type of DVD-r media / auto.
all boxes below that should be unchecked, don’t know as I said if this will help but you might as well take a look at it.

sorry your post wasn’t showing when I posted
