    As I asked before, are there any extras or other material that you can get rid of prior to running thru Rebuilder? I have never had a disk require that much compression.

    I assume that you are referring to format? Default is DVD in a VIDEO_TS folder of your choosing. I have the Pro version, can't remember if the free version will allow output as an .iso image or not.

    Do you have any intentions other than just burning it to DVD?

    You wanting to store it to your hard drive or encode it to a different format (.avi) or are you simply wanting to burn the results to a dvd and call it good?

    Then no, there is no need to have it in ISO format.
    If you can't get the compression any better than what you posted previously, then 100% quality is not going to happen, even with rebuilder. If you want 100% quality, then you will have to invest in DL Disks.

    If you have a reduction level of 35% for your movie, it ain't going to happen using DVD Shrink. And if it does get it to compress, it will be horrible. There is no comparison between the two programs. I know that you had some trouble with rebuilder, so you may have doubts, but it is far superior on higher compression backups.

    You still need to investigate and see what stuff can be removed. Foreign languages, subtitles, etc.

    Is this something you put together?
    Compressing a DL disc is usually around the 53% area.

    That's a good point actually, most episodics i do i guess are around the 53-58% mark, but as i say my record was the Battlestar Galactica seasons at 44%

    Agreed. I usually end up between the same percentages for the episodic discs i back up.

    Good call Dialysis.

    It may be necessary to back up to more than one disc.

    Looking at the log file again I can see that this is only 1 VTS. What program did you use to create this?
    You need to do this compilation over. It won't even fit on a DVD-9 without compression.

    Ok you all are making this very difficult I used dvd rebuilder but it made the movie into two seperate files audio_TS and video_ts and not the movie in just one format i tried to burn it with imgburn but it wouldnt let me so i converted it into a iso format it burned but with horrible horrible quality it took 4 hours for the process to be done I have dvdfab5 and it wont let me take out extras and things like that i do not know how to do that and i do not know how to tell how much reduction is on a movie

    Explain your full procedure. Exactly what you did before you went to DVD Rebuilder.
    Yes it will.
