I obtained a dvd folder which was 6.88gb so obviously I needed to compress it.
After using DVDshrink many times without a hitch I thought I might try ‘dvdfab’ for a change after seeing so many recommendations about its speed and reliability.
So I open up the dvd folder and want everything on the disk, so I went to the FULL DISC option and compression was 74%. Went along fine and yes, much quicker than dvdshrink.
I then burnt 3 copies of it.
I have just tested one and was suprised to see that the warning screens had gone, along with a couple of trailers for other dvd’s. Nice touch I thought.
BUT, It has also eaten the dvd intro. In most cases the dvd goes straight to menu anyway so this isn’t a problem. Though there is a 40 second clip at the start of the dvd just before the interactive menu appears, and this clip is important to the dvd.
So I understand why DVDfab got rid of this bit, as it would have recognised it as a trailer of some sort.
What I want to know now is…why did it do this in the first place seeing as I chose ‘full disc’? How can I stop this from happening in the future? And now i’ve wasted 3 perfectly good (and darn expensive) dvd+r’s.
BTW, I am 100% sure I chose full disc and not main movie due to the output folder named ‘fulldisc’.
