[quote=Mr-Zebra;2139707]…the bad thing is that the DVD folders containing the VTS files are up to 7.5-8.5 GB which means that a normal DVD will not have enough room/space.
What tool should I use to get the size that will fit on a normal DVD-R??
Using free programs, the choices come down to a transcoder called DVDShrink, or a program that can utilize full encoders, called DVDRebuilder.
Shrink is much faster than DVDRebuilder, no matter what system you are using it in. But the copies will not be as good a quality as you can get from DVDRebuilder, especially if you are doing full backups, including all menus and extras. You can reduce the amount of needed compression by simply not including extras, foreign language streams, etc.
You can find DVDShrink at www.mrbass.org I suggest looking through his guides to using the program also, or the ones that are here at cdfreaks in the Copy Movie forum.
DVDRebuilder can be found here: http://dvd-rb.dvd2go.org/ The free version is not as versatile as the Pro version, but will work for this basic compression task. Use the HC encoder that is included with the program and you will get excellent results.
Beyond these two programs, there are many choices if you want to pay for a transcoder. NeroReCode, DVDFab Platinum, CloneDVD and DVD2One are some of the options.
Edit: I’m getting very slow…two posters ahead of me, but the info is still valid
