    Hi, my first post ever!!

    I download a dvd, got all these VTS_01_0.IFO, VTS_01_0.BUP, VTS_01_0.VOB files with varying numbers, total file size 7.4 Gb.

    Do i need to burn these onto a DVD+R so i can fit the whole thing, or can i do something to fit it on a normal DVD-R, or perhaps split it into 2 discs?

    Cheers for your help.

    Welcome to AfterDawn!

    At 7.4G, your files won't fit on either +or- R single layer media. You can run those files through a program called DVD Shrink and it will compress them down to a size small enough to fit a blank disc. You will need a separate burning program to burn the output.

    Here's a guide for using DVD Shrink....

    So, if i burn it to a dual layer dvd+r will i be able to play it in a normal dvd player? Also these discs are much more expensive so i will prob shrink down, what the loss of quality like when shrinking?

    cheers for you help

    If you use a dual layer disc then you won't need to compress it.
    If you use a single layer disc and compress, then the quality can vary by your perception, the equipment used to view, and how much compression is applied.
