    Well, I need some help...I wanna burn 5 to 10 episodes of animes with everyting in original condition or uncut any scenes or anything or even subs to a DVD with DVD encoding plus good quality or pristine or excellent quality. Is it possible? Because I know one of the guys who let a friend of mine borrow his dubbed-anime DVD with 10 episodes each with any uncut scenes. The DVD is just a regular one with 4.7 GB. Man! I sm jus wondering how you can do that? To me, 5 episodes per disc in excellent quality is ok.

    As you know, all the animes are in Japnese audio but with English hardsubbed, and hence, I really need the subs in order to understand what the anime is about.

    I've never tried but this should work with the subs if they are hardsubbed. The quality totally depends on the origonal quality and runtime of the episodes but 5 - 6 1/2 hour episodes on 1 disc should be fine. Anyway, have a look: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/272946

    Well, as far as I know, you can only burn 3 episodes on a DVD discs according to the guide, and I have personally tried it. The Maxium numbers of episodes you can burn are 4, which occupies the whole disc of 4.7 GB. However, my friend's friend can burn 10 - 12 episodes on a single DVD disc? Maybe he shrinked them or cut them, which I am not really sure about. Anyway, by shrinking, I could only store up to 6 episodes. I need some help...

    Like I said, I've never used Nero for this, maybe, get your frind to ask his friend what he used. I know with good quality origonals I have burned 4 1 hour episodes to a 4.7G disc using MainConcept and an authoring program with fantastic results (never tried 5). Or VSO ConvertXtoDVD should do this (5 1/2 hour episodes, not 10 -12) in 1 step with a menu and good quality but the trial does put a watermark in your video.

    Well tell NeroVision to use DVD-9 as your target, set your bitrate (custom) at 2500 kb/s and see how many fit. Let it convert, then run the output through Recode to get it on a DVD-5. To get more time you'll have to go from Full to Half D1 (a definite quality hit, will look more like tape). At Half D1 in Nero you can get almost 5½ hours on a DVD-5.

    No.

    Tape quality? Is it just like the same as the AVI quality of Naruto which we have been currently watching? Dubbed tapes seem so weird in quantity and quality. By the way what do ya mean by definite quality hit as well as go from full to half D1?

    With NTSC:

    Full D1-> 740 X 480

    Half D1-> 352 X 480

    You give up half the horizontal resolution, hence less detail, but your TV will adjust the image to fill your screen.

    If your original source files are Half D1 nothing is gained by converting to Full D1.

    The subtitles can be extracted with SubRip (with only the caution to copy and paste the text in WinWord and use it to control if the all the subtitles extraction has always been done correctly (for instance, OCR [create letters from the exam of the images] doesn't see any difference between 'l' and 'I').

    Once you have extracted the subtitles in the ASCII Subrip form, if your DVD Player play DivX movies, you just have to burn a 'Data DVD' with:

    movie1.avi
    movie1.srt
    movie2.avi
    movie2.srt
    movie3.avi
    movie3.srt
    movie4.avi
    movie4.srt
    movie5.avi
    movie5.srt
    movie6.avi
    movie6.srt

    (I'm supposing the AVI are approx 700-800 MB each (average = 750) and the subtitles are in Subrip format (.srt). Please this works for N movies, if Size1+...SizeN < 4500 MB and (maybe) also for different subtutle format (MicroDVD, (.sub) + other? ; check your DVD Player instructions). Anyway, the conversion to .srt from any format is trivial. Many freeware does it.

    Often the subtitles are loades automatcally, if the subtitle name is equal to the movie name (movie.avi and movie.srt); sometimes, you can choose if and which subtitle inesert, when playing the movie. Again, consult your DVD Player's instructions.
