Ok. So let's extend a question I've seen pogoed around the discussion groups. I want to back up some DVD's. Not (yet) having a DVD burner I've been backing them up in DIVX format, hoping at a later point to burn from there back on to DVD's when I get a DVD burner (or multiple VCD's should I never get one ). For the DIVX encoding, I've been wondering, do I use 1CD/movie, 2CDs?, 3CDs?. Is there some rule of thumb, or some experience people have had as to what data rate (kb/s) is good to give you better transference later to VCD / DVD? I know somebody is going to tell me, the best solution is to use 7CD's and backup the VOB files, but that's not particularly helpful. Any helpful ideas or comments?
