I kind of started a post earlier but I realize I had a different question which deserved a new fresh post, so here goes: I recently copied "Mothman Prophecies" to a DVD 100% intact to the original commercial DVD. Here are the specs: TOTAL SIZE: Fits on to DVD5 (SINGLE LAYER) 119minutes (yes, almost 2 full hours worth) English AND French surround sound Theatrical trailer Music Video Movie Causing me to pull my hair out: House of Flying Daggers. Commercial DVD Source: DVD9 Dual Layer Cut out EVERYTHING using shrink. Only the main movie was ripped - all menus, other audio tracks, special features GONE. Just the movie, plain and simple. Length: 114minutes SIZE: 6.08Gigs. I want to know why. the movies are 3 gigs apart and this is the smaller one having all the extras AND another audio track. This makes no sense to me at all and preventing me from backing up the great movie. help please! Thanks, and sorry for sounding so distressed. please keep in mind there is no compression involved whatsoever on my part. and i do not want to compress as a solution.
