I have a hdtv video file in a .tp format and its ~4.6 gigs and I want to archive it onto a dvd. I don’t want to recode it down to a dvd format ('cause it’s hdtv!). I tried Nero and its too big and won’t burn. I tried making it an image file in various udf formats and using Alcohol 120%–no go either. I’m stumped. Is this possible? I know that dvd’s are marked as 4.7 gig capacity and this file is less that that, so my thought process is that it should fit. Then again I know about the file overhead and a dvd will really only hold ~ 4.3 gigs. Any thoughts?
My drive is a NEC 2500a that I flashed with Herrie’s “fix” so it will support dual layer. I guess it’s possible to do this with dual layer, but where the blank can you get the media?
