I’ve trying to use Nero’s Recode V188.8.131.52 which is part of the software that came with my burner (Memorex 16X DL) that I purchased some time ago. I have been using a combo of DVDFab Decrypter V184.108.40.206., DVD Shrink V220.127.116.11, and Nero’s burning software to burn an ISO file to disc. Aside from the DVD Shrink recoding process taking a long time it’s worked very well for quite some time now with no complaints. Recently Nero’s Recode was brought to my attention by way of an iPod (30GB) video player that I purchased for my daughter and I needed a way to shrink and convert existing DVD movies to mpeg4 to play on her iPod which again has worked very well using Nero’s Recode.
I’ve read on various forums that Nero’s Recode works faster and with better picture quality to shrink DVD’s so I thought I’d give it a try. The first time I totally screwed up (not sure what I did) and somehow I altered a newly decrypted movie file on my HD and I was unable to recode or shrink this file to DVD size so I bailed out on this attempt and started from scratch.
So with a newly decrypted file I utilized Nero’s Recode again and this time it appears to have worked well (much faster too) with one exception. Now when I attempt to burn the Nero .nrg image file, the Nero software indicates that there isn’t enough room on the DVD disc, 4,484 MB (4,702,371,840 bytes) needed, and 4,482 MB (4,700,372,992 bytes) available on my new Memorex DVD+R blank disc.
What went wrong on this attempt?, and what can I do in the future to prevent this from happening again?, are there Nero Recode default options I could change to shrink the files a little smaller to fit on a standard DVD blank disc?
Thank you for your help.
