    First i ripped how high it first started out at like 5GB then i ifoedited it it came out to under 4GB perfect for dvd-r. But then i stripped jurassic park and i ifoedited it but it only lost like 40mb why does this happen? how could ifo takes off alot of info off some dvds and other it doesn't take off that much?

    But the way this is my first time posting but i learned to copy dvds by reading the posts. just want to thank everyone and say what a great board this is.

    Thanks

    Well, some DVDs have many extras and many languages and subtitles and some don't have any.

    Read my post again.
    Think about it.
    Now go and stand in the corner with a pointed hat with a big 'D' on it.

    There are a number of variables that determine how much space the video takes up. I've found that if there are a lot of special effects in the movie (like Jurassic Park) it will tend to be bigger because there is a lot more information in the video. Also, some movies have a lot more in the main titleset than the main movie and some don't. And of course the longer the movie is the more space it will take up. The real question isn't how much smaller the titleset got. It's whether what's left is right for the length of the movie and the amount of detail in the picture.

    THank you vurbal. Yea i not its not how much was taken out. This makes sense cause i wanted to look towards what movies to pick out to copy to one dvd so ill stay away from big special effects.
