ok, I have a very strange problem. I 'am using a nec1300a, dvd2one 1.2 dvddecrypter 3.1.6. When I rip the movie files their are 4 .vob files and other various related files, all perfectly sized to just fit on a blank DVD-r. I couldn't copy straight to dvd using latest nero, it came up with an error about not finding some sort of file. Anyway, not being too bothered about that I thought I would run the ripped files through dvd2one as thats how I have done all my other films. This worked fine through nero and did my useual quality test and it seemed a very bad quality copy. The first I had ever had. I checked on the DVD and there was at least 500mb worth of free space that had not been written too. I checked the files that dvd2one had created and yep, they were not 4.37 in total but more like 3.85. My question is why did dvd2one compress them to a smaller size than needed thus loosing some quality of the copied film? I thought it was meant to compress only enough so it would fit nicly on a blank DVD and not too much as to loose quality? Any clues on this one?
