Default Nice feature

I found nice feature of ImgBurn. (Sorry to known already.)

Recently I sometimes backup DVD to DVD by ImgBurn and Any DVD, because it is no need of HDD space and can save time.
But I hate first warning and long extras. (AnyDVD has the function of jumping directly main-movie or menu, but it is not reliable(some bug) and often not effective.)

But I think below method is very useful, it utilizes the ImgBurn's function of combining files which is in different folders.
(1)start AnyDVD (background)
(2)by PgcEdit, edit IFO in the favorite (for example, kill playback)
(3)by PgcEdit, save edited IFOs in HDD (default can't save because in DVD)
(4)by ImgBurn and Build-mode, burn VOB files in DVD and edited IFOs/BUOs in (3)

Sector's information of IFO of (3) is what there is no VOB, but its information of (4) is corrected and no problem.

Thanks for nice program.
(Bofore I tried same thing(combining files in different folders) by some commercial burning software, but it was not secceeded.)

Regards.

Be careful. Some IFO files have padding themselves, and after PgcEdit has made an edit (eg Kill Playback) they may change size. This might make things more difficult.

Thanks for advice. I think to have to be careful not to cahnge VOB size and to select all needed files without omission, too.

I think ImgBurn corrects IFOs so as to be no padding, even though original IFOs have padding. (except for padding 32kB when checking setting.)
Isn't it?

I think PgcEdit can kill playback without changing VOB size by selecting no to "blank cells".
Isn't it?

Regards.

Certainly the VOBs don't change size, but if the IFO has a couple of extra sectors, PgcEdit will reduce it to its most efficient state.

I misunderstood.
You mean IFO's size changes it self not padding between files.
I didn't know and have never recognized till now. I'll be careful.
Thanks for the information.

Regards.

Yes, precisely. I have seen some IFOs which were, for example 18kb. I opened and saved in PgcEdit (doing nothing else!) and the same ones were 14kb!!!

Makes me worry a little about your method.

I thought again. I think it has no problem.
Even though IFO's size changes, it seems to be that information of IFO except about file size(for example about padding) is already corrected when saved by PgcEdit, and information about file size is cerrected when burned by ImgBurn.
Isn't it?

Regards.

I suppose your trials have shown it to work and I agree with you that PgcEdit will fix the VTS Sectors anyway. A very interesting method for those low on disk space.

Of course, verify doesn't work with AnyDVD.
