Target Size is too small

I tried to copy an original 6.1 GB DVD
Settings are on default
(Target: DVD-5)

And at 99% i got this error

I tried to copy this with Intervideo DVD Copy 2
It made it without errors , but the compressed files
are 6.1 GB !

I ask, why??

“an original 6.1 GB DVD”

Could you be so kind to name the title, region code, version (widescreen, normal, etc.), if you used DVDDecrypter or AnyDVD, etc, etc.

I tried to copy the Blind Guardian Imaginations through the Looking glass DVD

Latest AnyDVD is running at the background
I have the latest Clone DVD 2 , too

Everything worked well, Clone DVD2 started to do the DVD files
to the HDD from the DVD
At 99%, it stopped (target size is too small error)

I set to the default (DVD-5), so it should compress to fit to one disc size…
But it can’t

I tried a lot of sotwares, finally DVD Shrink did the work
But the quality is not so high…

I didn’t set anything else
I wanted to copy entire disk, and I didn’t find any settings what you wrote
I only changed the source (DVD) the destination (HDD)
set to DVD-5, entire disk(checking all pictures and sound)
next - next - start :slight_smile:

Which Region Code? In which country did you buy it?
We need to get such a DVD to reproduce this problem.

Exact version numbers, please. Thank you! (Everybody says “I have the latest”… whatever version this might be… :slight_smile: )

I bought that in Hungary, but it is from Germany
The DVD is region-free

AnyDVD : 3.8.2.3
Clone DVD 2.0.9.4

Hi,

could you please try this backup again: just create DVD files to hdd (no burning is necessary)
and send the contents of the log window to bugs@elby.ch.
(Note: right klick in the log window to save its contents)

Thank you.

Is this a sheer VideoDVD or an AudioDVD or a mixed one ?

it is a Video DVD
(a live concert-video)

Yes, i did what you have written
I copied the DVD to the HDD
I have got that error file, i saved that one yesterday evening,
i will post it today , when i get home

I tried it today evening again
I just ripped the DVD to the HDD with Smartripper
You know, it kills region code and Macrovision, but only these
No compression.

So, I tried to compress DVD with Clone DVD 2 from HDD to HDD
I didn’t start any other software
The same error - target size is too small
I sent the error.log to the address you gave me

I installed a Nero Recode 2 - and I did my copy without any problem
:slight_smile:

Ragehu, can you send it to me, please??? I cant find this DVD in my country…
Thanks…

is your HD full?
is it a fat 32 partition? (then you should enable the split files into one GB chunks in CloneDVD) a
