[quote=HomerGB;2001787]“Yes” files are compressed when ripped to your hard drive when putting them on a 4.78gb disc as I’m sure you are fully aware of, [B]I would though be interested to hear where you heard that all files are compressed to your H/D[/B] when doing what I assume you say when in the process of doing a one to one copy using D/L material.
[B] I’m not sure you can turn off the compression settings in pro, and I wonder why you would need to when using the one to one settings option[/B], surely if the files are being compressed it would be pointless using 1Click and you just a easy obtain a perfect copy using Nero for instance…
I’m sure someone can enlighten us on this one… (perhaps from LGSoftware for instance)…[/quote]
See Post #5 in the thread that I linked to in my first post on this topic. After re-reading that more carefully, I may have misread it.
I had the idea that the files were compressed to the HDD using a form of lossless compression, something akin to WinZip, perhaps to save HDD space. This is a separate and distinct concept from the idea of compressing the content to fit smaller media, which is lossy and undesirable. I understand how to disable the latter. If the former is not happening in the first place, that answers my question.
We seem to be in agreement on this – there would be no point in compressing the files to HDD unless one intended to go from DL to SL. My own mistake here - due to the way I misread the info.
