I’m trying to burn archived DVDs from my hard drive to DVD-R as fast as possible. I won’t be archiving a lot of DVDs on the hard drive, so I’m not concerned about space… I’m more concerned about video quality and burn times. I simply want an uncompressed format, that requires no conversion by the burning software for the archived DVD to be written to the DVD media (resulting in the fastest possible burn times). So all the burning software would do is take data from X location and write it to X location. From what I’ve gathered from other posts and forums, the best way to do this would be to store the DVD in its native file format the .VOB format (and the VIDEO_TS folder etc.). But I was also wondering if storing a DVD in the .ISO format would return the same desired results (I’ve heard that this format is uncompressed) and the ability to mount the DVDs would be a plus as well.
I’ve been storing DVDs on my hard drive as .ISO’s and burning them with ImgBurn. This seems to be producing the solution that I’m looking for, but I wasn’t sure and I spent at least an hour or two looking for the answer to this question and I was unable to find it.
I think both of these methods will achieve what I want, just wanted to make sure.
Thank you for your time.
