I Need Help With Everything :(

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Im very confused by all this stuff!! Ive read alot of the topics etc and I did the folder name change thing as well. I have Img Burn, Dvd Decryptor and Dvd Shrink.

 

I want to Back up my Dvd's and with these programs I am unsure how to do that step by step. I have an External Dvd Burner made by Toshiba that Ive just bought recently and Ive went through almost an entire pack of 10 HP Dvd+R Media.

 

Can anyone provide the "How TO" step by step so I can Burn my Dvd's Please?? Thank You

No we can't, the step by step bit, but we can help you burn images, whatever they may be, so your best bet is to tell where you are having the problem, or what is it you don't understand, and as long the answer doesn't or won't break any laws we will help you.

Sorry, but that's the best we can do.

Hi,

Im wanting to make copies of my Owned Dvd's and I don't know were to start. Does ImgBurn burn Dvd's and if so were do I begin?

 

Im not familiar with the Programs and what they are capable of doing. Any help is appreciated.

Ok, ImgBurn will happily burn anything, providing you present it with the correct format file, this format is usualy called an ISO file,

 

Now, there are a lot of apps that will produce this kind of file, including the ones you have mentioned, but for obvious reasons we can't help you with them.

 

It is illegal in a lot of countries to copy DVD's full stop, regardless of wether they are yours or not, therefore we need to obide with those rules.

 

When you get your apps to produce an ISO file, then you find you're having trouble burning it with ImgBurn, we will certainly help you fix that bit. ;)

Ok, What type of Media should I be using for this? At the moment im using HP LightScribe Dvd+R 16x?

 

Does it make a diffrenece when it says 16x on the box and when buying media what should I be using to get the best quality?

you shouldnt be guided so much by what it says on the box, look for the MID /manufacturer ID.take a look here http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showforum=15 to see what i mean.

the first one in the list is Bulkpak 2.4x DVD+R DL [CMC MAG-D01-00] .the box will say bulkpak but the mid is CMC MAG-D01-00

Ok when using Dvd Shrinker with Dvd+R Media how do we know if we need to use Automatic Compression or no Compression? Im doing this myself and don't know which option to select?

How large is the file? If it will fit with No compression then you dont need to compress it if the file size is larger then 4.46 gigs then you will need to use Automatic compresssion.

 

If you are worried about commpression / vs quality you can reauthor the video and burn the main video only. There are other apps out there to shrink the menus as well.

 

I am not real sure what is ok information for me to give you in this forum, so for now I hope that helps you out somewhat.

Ok ive used Dvd Shrink and now I have NO idea what I did or didn't do Right :( WHen I opened up IMGBurn and I was asked to pick the folder with the files I got a message that said "ISO Write Mode is for Burning disc images NOT Video_Ts files.....

Leave it on Automatic and let shrink take care of it ,if the file is too big shrink will compress it , if it will fit then shrink won't have to do anything and will encode it .When you hit backup there will be a Select Target box and a drop down menu. you can select ISO to hard drive ,after shrink encodes/compresses, open the drive where its stored (shrink will give you a heads up where its stored ) then open IMGburn and find the ISO under Source (please select a file) and burn it

 

For media I only reccommend Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim

 

quick Guide for Shrink

 

Open files, select folder (dvd name) click on +sign Video TS folder opens click ok Shrink analyzes the File (a couple of minutes ) main window opens ,click reauthor ,drag and drop Main movie from left to right and then click backup ,SELECT BACKUP TARGET look at the little arrow on the right click on it and select ISO Image file click OK and Shrink creates an ISO .

 

Like its been said its illegal to break the copyright on DVD's whether you own them or not, this is what led to the demise of DVDD but the above guide will work to do home movies, clips also after the proper proccessing

With the program you using you need to save the files as a.ISO file. If you have it saved as an ISO file you dont need to open IMGburn at all just got to the .ISO file ..right click it and select Burn with IMGburn.

 

And off it goes. Make sure you use good media and watch you speed in burning. You generally want to burn 1/ the speed your media supports.

 

 

(Although I never burn faster then 4X then again I use 8X media)

How large is the file? If it will fit with No compression then you dont need to compress it if the file size is larger then 4.46 gigs then you will need to use Automatic compresssion.

 

Not to piddle on your parade angel, but you'd have some trouble with this size file. (It won't fit) :)

I personaly would not go beyond 4.35GB and that's with good media.
