I have many folders of movies I backup with DVDDecrypter over the last many years and now I want to burn some of them. To look at and for extra safe backup (lost a couple of hard drives recently).

It went alright until I got to one that is bigger than a dvd5 - it is 7.7G.

I thought imgburn was going to do it because it asked me about a break point. But it wouldn't do more than either truncate or overburn.

I thought I'd pick the files up with dvdshrink and massage them but dvdshrink won't pick them up - invalid parameter it says.

What is the best way to deal with such a library of DVDDecrypt rips? Burn most with what? Burn the oversize with what? How?

Do what the creator of the original DVD did, with the same high quality bitrate instead of crapping a high-bitrate video; use a dual layer DVD disc. Most premium quality retail VD movies are dual layer. Verbatim DVD+R-DL is the top choice.

Well that sounds fair enough. I didn't think of it. Was kinda thinking my old dvd burners wouldn't burn a dvd9. They should?

Well okay. I'll invest in some media.

Meanwhile I used CDBurnerXP which did a trouble free job and split the movie across two disks.

I couldn't get anything to else to load the files so I finished up turning to CDBurnerXP, which I found and downloaded today, free thing, no virus or stuff, and put the VOBs I wanted into it.

5 of them. Making about 5G.

It split them up no problem - only funny thing it put VOB 1 on Disk 1 and VOBs 2-5 on Disk2 ! I would have expected it the other way around. Maybe one can reorder them in the list or even rename them, I don't know. Happy to get something done.
