    Default Help!!! copy to DVD says 4.38 wont fit on a 4.7 gig disc

    Well I gave up on dvDx copy platinum

    (If you seen my other posts you

    know the headaches that gave me &

    IFO edit wouldnt work either) .

    & tried a Dvd decrypter , Dvd2one

    & copy DvD combo

    I want the entire movie intact on 1 disc

    (as why I tried DvDx copy platinum till

    my head hurt) .

    & Tutorials all say this is possible.

    All goes smooth until copy2DvD

    goes to burn the DvD

    There i`m told the file is over 4.37

    Gigs (it`s 4.47) , & wont fit on disc

    which is 4.7 gig memorex DVD-R

    Do I want to continue burning

    & even if I set copy dvd to required

    size & continue anyhow , another error

    message pops up saying I need @ l

    least 4.48 gigs of disc space

    & it wont fit on my media (memorex

    DVD-R , 4.7 gigs in size) .

    I`m banging my head on the monitor

    by now . What gives here .

    Please give some much needed &

    appreciated advice

    The maximum a DVD can hold is 4.37GB not the advertised 4.7GB. That is really 4.7 billion bytes.

    "tried a Dvd decrypter , Dvd2one & copy DvD combo"

    You should use DVDShrink. Going from "4.38 gig" to "4.37 gig" and below is a very easy job for Shrink.

    Thanx I`ll try that

    Does DvD shrink keep entire

    DvD intact , menus/extras etc...?

    No matter how low I set DvD2one

    I get 4.38 Gigs

    Have you changed the size in DVD2One? I use 4452MB which gives me 4.34GB

    Yes–if you do a "Full Disk" backup.

    Default It worked . fanx I have 1 more inquiry

    Fanx 4 all your advice

    shrink did it -

    I`m not overly pleased with the quality

    But it`s well enough . I copied entire

    DvD intact , so I lost some quality

    I just had a bright idea that may work ,

    so I`ll ask here it it may work

    Can I copy main movie uncompressed

    to one disc , & go back to those

    (DvD decrypted) files in shrink another

    time & choose only the extras .

    I did this once in DvDxcopy platinum ,

    uncompressed the quality was

    awesome , but on extras disc

    everything was all over the place ,

    I had credits & end splash screen ,

    & lots of copyright stuff normally @ end

    @ beginning & throughout the disc

    But all was there , & it looked bang on

    to original DvD , but ya can imagine

    it was a pain to sort through .

    Platinum , after 1 week of errors ,

    finally did 1/2 a split DvD for me , but

    didnt load 2nd portion .

    Can I do as I asked , & have control

    over how it all copies to disc , in logical

    order . As ya know all that menu can

    be confusing , & easiest is just to

    compress & take it all . But I dont mind

    using 2 DvDr`s if I can do as I asked.

    If I can how may all this look/work

    out in the program ? The guide has

    no instructions on such .

    Cheers -

    "But I dont mind using 2 DvDr`s if I can do as I asked."

    There is also a nice little program called "DVD-replica"–it's not free that will do what you are seeking. Visit the following link below:
