If you want to ISOs that are exact duplicates of your dvds with exactly the same number or bytes in the ISO file as in the original dvd, use MagicISO. Yes you have to pay for it but it's the first software package I have found that really does that. CloneDVD and many others will take those 8gigabyte dvds and compress them down to the 4g max but there are always some annoying digital effect. Other software packages come close to Magic ISO but in there are always some differences; for instance, some of them really don'g copy the complete menus so you cannot do chapter searches. I just finished testting more than two dozen packages and I am now wold on MagicISO. I"ve used clonedvd and dvdshrink for years but when you finally use the hard media dvd they burn the really suck when it comes to digital effects.
QUOTE=ArtOfWar;1445732]Hello, I want to archive my collection onto my HD, and still want to be able to make backups of just the movie files from those archives if needed. I am not sure which format would be better for this, I have tried DVD Decrypter but WinDVD wont play those files when I used that program, When I used CloneCD and saved then as DVD FIle and chose the DVD+R /DL mode so as to preserver the 1:1 ratio when i go to edit that file it wont allow me to change the size of that file to fit on a 4.7 DVDR. What I would like to do is Have the Movies on my Media Center so I may Watch them and Also be able to Transfer the Movie to a DVD for Travel use on my IPOD or other media device. Please any assistance would be great.
DVD --- Lite On 1633 DVDR
Media - Dupesonic 8X DVD+R
