I want to backup some of my Xbox 360 games by doing the swap method but I need a DVD movie that is over 8 gigabytes capacity to do this so I need to know does anyone know of the name of any DVD movie that is over 8GB DVD region2?

Aren’t most all of them anymore on DL media?


#3

Yes they are all on DL media but they are mostly 7 gigabytes I am looking for a movie that I can buy that is over 8 gigabytes.

the biggest in my collection is king kong

it shows as 8,467,677,184 bytes
which wnds up at 7.88 or so GB since 1024bytes in a kb and so on and so forth.

maybe one of the godfather movies?

i can check my LOTR discs.

LOTR - return of the king special edition is 8,525,676,544 bytes or 7.94 GB

(i’m R1, but i imagine R2 discs would be similar for these longer movies…)


#7

oh… maby not… schlindlers list is 7.27 gb

can you just create a dummy disc?

use dvdshrink or a simlar program to join 2 movies together and burn that to DL media?

or does ithave to be a pressed disc?

There are no DVDs that are over 8 gb, or at least not in “real” gb. A DL DVD holds about 8,540,000,000 bytes, which is about 7.95 gb. Also, this thread has nothing to do with backing up DVD movies, so I’m moving it.
