    I have skimmed through some of the posts about compression and haven't seen an answer I am looking for.

    (1) I have a 43gb blu-ray disc, but I only have 25gb blank discs. Is there a compression software out there that can do this? I have used imgburn to get the movie onto my hard drive with no problems.

    (2) I have seen lists of dozens of softwares to use while burning/ripping blu-ray. Can Imgburn compress to under 25gb or is Imgburn strictly an exact copy software?

    With DVDs, shrink would compress the files to 4464MB, and then you could use Nero to burn to disc. Is Blu-ray not that simple yet?

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but I am racking my brain trying to figure this out.

    binmax,
    ImgBurn is a very nice building and burning engine but it can not reduce file size. For BD DVD you should use the following. AnyDVD HD, or DVDFab HD to rip. RipBot264, and BD Rebuilder (Beta). With the use of these programs if you want movie only you can normally reduce the file to fit on a DVD-5 instead of a BD, or DL disk with great quality.

    So let me get this straight. You are telling me that you can shrink a 43gb BD movie down to a 4.7gb DVD-5 Disc? I can't see how that is possible?

    I already have AnyDVD HD. I used it in conjunction with Imgbrn. That's how I thought I was able to put the 43gb movie on my hard drive in the first place. I will try the other softwares you recommended and see what I can come up with.

    I am trying to back up Gangs of New York BD. I was actually pretty fluent at using all the softwares used for DVD ripping/burning. I just received my BD burner and knew that this new format might be a struggle at first. This is my first and only rip so far. I figured I would try and dissect all of the information on this movie first before I started tackling anything else.

    Okay I will look into that. I tried installing the BDRebuilder and it said it was out of date. I can't win for losing. Not for sure why there would even be an out of date version available for download.

    You haven't checked out the last link posted above by syxguns, the current version (from his link) is 0.19.06, dated Feb 21, 2009.

    Plus a little googling revealed ~ http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/BD-Rebuilder-Download-117797.html

    Only legacy AC3 and DTS is supported at this stage (not TrueHD/DTS-HD) with BD Rebuilder.

    No, there isn't. The option "do not reencode AC3" does not mean keep TrueHD... It simply means do not reencode 640 Kbit/s AC3 to 448 Kbit/s AC3.

    Okay, I have been able to rip the Blu-Ray movie to my hard drive with AnyDVDHD. I ripped the movie as an ISO image with flying colors. Now the ISO image is just slightly bigger than my 25gb disc.

    I never liked menus so those won't be an issue. What is being used to to get the stand alone movie down under the 24gb mark in order to fit on the disc? I have Imgburn and NERO 9 to use to burn to disc, but of course the disc isn't big enough.

    Does anyone have a refined 5-step user's guide for this, or does everyone have to go to 20 different pages to find all of the software needed?

    I have been sucessfully backing up my blu-ray disc to a dual layer dvd for sometime now using Anydvd, Ripbot264, and Nero. The process takes about about 22hr from start to finish, but results are amazing. I'm pretty sure by using these programs you should be able to back up your blu-ray movie to blank blu-ray disc with no problem.

    His problem is that the movie is on a 50GB disk. He would have to purchase the new 50GB BD disks to fit the entire DVD on it. That is why I suggested that he use RipBot264. Then just record the movie file.

    I will try that out. I have no interest in backing up a copy with the menus. I am trying to take the movie off of the 50gb disc and put it on a 25gb disc, with nothing else but the movie.

    ripbot will compress
    bd-rebuilder will compress
    Tsmuxer will elinimate the unnecessary aduio formats and subty's to get the lowets GB and highest quality
    If i were you
    I use tsmuxer first and elinimate the unnecessary formats like sapnish,french,
    I would keep main movie with one audio and one subty and let see how big will be file 9Make sure you choose bd- structure as output file)

    Most of the time 70% of the movies willcome under 25gb
    Ganges of newyork will be more than that and i will take that stripped file and ran it inot Bd-rebuilder o r ribbot

    Ripbot will do everything you need it to do, and you can make the file any size you like. After which all you need to do is burn it to a disk and watch your movie.
