    When exploring a perchased dvd I saw it had a seven gig file on it, how the hell do you get a seven gig file on a 4.7 gig disk or do they make bigger capacity disks not for general usage?

    What you do is compress the file, using programmes like Rempeg or CCE (Cinema Craft Encoder)

    Or

    The very latest, DVD2one. (Fairly easy to use I'm told)

    Many dvd movies come out with dual layer discs. There is 9.4 GB's per disc. These are not available to the general public nor will they be any good to record on all of the dvd burners.

    HomerJ is right. Something that size definitely needs reencoding.

    Well I tried using DVD2one. I put my VIDEO_TS folder containing six files in and found five files in the destination folder, burnt to disk, no problems, played it, no sound (it did have sound before, I was using a folder that had been already burnt) I went and got the missing file and reburnt, still no sound. Where do I go from here?

    What audio did u select (did u even select audio) cos if u did and only selected DTS in dvd2one and u r playing it without a decoder(amp), then standard tv etc cannot downmix the DTS audio to 2 channel so, therefore there is no sound.

    There is a very good dvd2one guide at www.dvd2one or I believe there is a guide on this forum.

    I created the VIDEO=TS useing Nero VisionEepress then open DVD2one I selected that folder and a temp folder as destination, on dvd2one's next screen showed,
    Title Chapters Angles Time
    1 1 1 2:15:32
    I OKed this, next screen was
    Audio
    A square with MPEG 2ch (I ticked this)
    Language: unspecfied
    info (nothing here)
    In the box below this, subtitle and type was nothing, in the box next to this was, Angle was 1. Then I clicked start, in the destination were five files not six. burnt OK, played OK, but no sound.

    Thats wierd, as the sound u tick should remain in the vobs.

    What I do is rip the movie with dvd decrypter into the folder that dvd decrypter generates.

    I create a folder on my root drive (previously) called VIDEO_TS(uppercase).

    In dvd2one I choose the VIDEO_TS folder (dvd decrypter made) as the source.

    Then choose the VIDEO_TS folder(which I created)as the destination.

    Select the movie.

    Tick what audio I want to keep (dts, 2ch,5.1 etc)

    Tick subs I want to keep.

    And click next/start and dvd2one goes and does it's thing.

    When finished I then look in the VIDEO_TS folder to make sure it all looks ok and then burn back.

    The files u would expect to see should be similar to these:

    VIDEO_TS.IFO
    VIDEO_TS.BUP
    VTS_01.IFO
    VTS_01.BUP
    VTS_01_01.VOB
    VTS_01_02.VOB
    VTS_01_03.VOB
    VTS_01_04.VOB
    VTS_01_05.VOB

    This always works for me fine!!!!!!!

    BTW does ur original file HAVE audio, just check, will it play through powerdvd/media player etc?

    Hope this helps.

    just had a thought gran-pa.

    U said earlier that u ticked 'the square MPEG 2 ch' box.

    Why did this audio come from as this may be the problem, ie dvd2one cannot detect this file to keep in the finished vob structure.

    If it is labelled up as an MPEG file I don't know for sure but I would expect dvd2one is not looking for this format of audio, I may be wrong though.

    Baabaa I download .avi,.mpg from the net then useing VisionExpress to turn them into files my DVD will read, (the darn thing only likes vob and write once +r) VE creates a VIDEO-TS folder with the following files in it, (files sizes according to film length, this one worked.)
    VIDEO_TS 12kb BUB file
    VIDEO_TS 20kb VOB file
    VIDEO_TS.IFO 12kn IFO file
    VTS_01_0 86kb BUB file
    VTS_01_0.IFO 86kb IFO file
    VTS_01_1 4,297,844 VOB file

    It's the VIDEO_TS 20kb VOB file that doesn't get copied or used by DVD2one. I really have no problem with useing VisionExpress except when it comes to movies longer than 120 minutes.
