I’m just curious, if I were to back up my dvd’s on to a DL disc with bitsetting set to DVD-ROM, are the files on the DL media still bit for bit perfect similar to the original despite the bitsetting made? Thanks.
The player won’t be able to tell the difference between your DL w/dvd-rom and a commercial pressed DL disc. As for the integrity of the data I must admit I’m a bit fuzzy on it. On most digital media, you can make a copy of a copy forever and if there are no errors, the last copy will be the same as the original. I’m told (I don’t understand this) that somehow there is an analog aspect to dvd video. Making copies of copies will degrade the quality. I have no clue how this works
Yes the files should be identical if you rip them correctly.
Use DVD Decrypter to properly burn/handle the layer break on DVD+R DL video discs!
Select the MDS file when choosing the source to burn.
It is also important to use the right discs. I recommend Verbatim DVD+R DL discs primarily. There have been many issues with Ritek DL discs.
