I wanted to make a backup of the US DVD release of the film Evil (Ondskan) which for once is a DVD5 (single layer disc) release.
Why does DVDfab’s ‘Full Disc’ option in DVD5 mode still insist on compressing this a little bit, showing “Quality: 96% (4442 MB -> 4300 MB)”?
It’d probably be hard to notice that recompression, but it recompression can only do harm and I knew there was no need for it so I chose DVD9 mode instead although this was not a DVD9 just to keep the quality at 100%.
I later wrote the ripped VIDEO_TS folder DVDfab created to a single layer DVD-R using ImgBurn with no problems which proves it never was a DVD9 size project.
Sure there’s plenty of confusion regarding base-1024 and base-1000 interpretation of megabyte and gigabyte, and there are some very small capacity differences between pressed DVD, DVD-R and DVD+R, but in the end 4442 MB (444210241024 bytes) is not a problem on any single layer media and doesn’t need to be compressed.
Can we have this fixed in DVDfab please?
