Burning DVD Backups
I just got my new toy, a Lite-On SOHW-1633S, which supports burning to +R9 /Dual-Layer disks. I am trying to backup my copy of "The Village", and am using DVD Decrypter. I used the ISO - Read function to rip the 6.75 gig ISO. My question is, if I use the dvd-decypter to burn the ISO to a dual-layer disk, will I be able to play the movie / use the features on a DVD player?
My understanding of the technology is that many of the movies out there now are on dual-layered disks, and up until now you have had to use programs like dvd-shrink to bring the ISO's down to a manageable 4.7 gigs, but now that the dual-layer burners are out, making exact copies is possible.
Am I right or wrong? If there are any tricks to doing this please let me know.skybolt_1

I would just use dvd shirnk to turn the movie into video files. Disregard the compression if you are using dual-layer discs. I would use Nero to copy to a video disc.

Yes you will be able to play the DVDR9 disk in your DVD player unless it's really picky about media types. Though buying DVDR9 media was still really espensive last time I checked.

just use iso read, then iso write, and it should be a 1:1 copy. let us know if you have any problems, though. i still haven't come across dual layer blanks where i live. not looking too hard though as i generally just use dvd shrink to backup the main movie and dump all the crap such as subtitles, extra content, puo's, fbi warnings etc. i like my dvds to just play upon insertion, like a video.

OK, so basically, it boils down to - if I want a straight 1-1 copy with all the associated fbi warnings, extra features, etc... I have to use a dual layer disk.
If I choose to dump all that extra stuff then I can use a single layer disk.
Thanks for the help!skybolt_1

I don't think DVD shrink supports dual layer burning, does it? Any way if you delete all the crap and just backup the movie don't waste a dual layer disk. Unless the movie is real long, time wise just use a single layer disk.Dyin' ain't much of a way to make a livin', son!

The newest version of dvd shrink supports dual layer. as long as your nero is upto date id recommend going straight through dvd shrink.Asrock 4coreDual-vsta Core2 duo 4300(1.8ghz)-@ 2.4ghz
