Hi There, as a new and fairley old (in age) video file user I hope someone can spread some light on my following questions.
I have copied old analogue camcorder videos to DVD and note that although I used 4.7Gb DVD+R discs, when I open the disc on my computer and look at the files they total over 9Gb.
Apart from the .ifo and .bup files the .VOB files have been triplicated or at least it looks like they have. The files are for example VTS_01_1 and then triplicated as VTS_02_1 and VTS_03_1.
When I use DVDShrink the result seems to be to remove the 02 and 03 files, all the other files seem to be just copied like for like.
So questions are 1) Why does my computer seem to see 9Gb on a disc that should only hold 4.7GB ? 2) what are the triplicated files for ? and 3) does DVDShrink just cut the triplicated files to arrive at the reduced overal DVD folder size.
I hope someone can enlighten me.
