I just installed dvdfab 188.8.131.52 tonight and made a backup of “Touch of Evil” widescreen. Imgburn told me the original dvd was single layer media at about 4.6 gig. So I began the backup with dvdplat using a single layer dvd. dvdfab eventually burped and made me insert a dual-layer dvd to do the backup. After the backup was complete, I checked how large the new backup was and it was 4.6 gig, i.e., it would have fit on an single layer dvd.
Why is dvdfab making me use double layer media for a single layer original?
Seems like previous versions of dvdfab were forcing me into this as well.
PS - I use almost exclusively “Full Disc” mode, as I did for the backup described above.
