hdd question –
just wondering if i want to copy my dvd movies i need more hdd space. my question is what size should i get would a 10gb be enough or would a 160 gb be to much? someone help
well a full dvd contains about 9gb
but dvdr can only hold 4.7
so u end up leaving the extras etc off, since the movie by itself is usually about 4 gigs
i would get a 30 gig or so. but only if u plan to use it as a separate drive for this purpose only
yeah i was going to buy an external hdd. if an average dvd movie is around 9gb. would i use dvd decryter to take the extras out? or is there another program that can de it?
you should consider a 8 mb cache 7200 rpm hdd. If u are planning to rip dvd's or shrink them from dvd 9 to dvd 5, u need a fast hdd.
I have like 40 gig extra.. and that should be enough... since most of the files.. u will back it up on your dvd's
yep agreed, u should get the 8mb cache, very nice
try a prog called dvdxcopy, its supposed to help with this kinda thng, never tried it myself
U should try to use DVDshrink. It's much faster and easier in use. The problem is.... it's also less quality. You don't have th shrink all dvd. Sometimes moving the extra audio's and subtitles are enough. Or the extra menu's and add ons.
i tryed it an it work but stop loading because i had no more hdd space i have to buy a external hdd cause i have a laptop and you know how much storage space on these are.
Don't use DVD Shrink, get AnyDVD, so you can do an immediate copy of a DVD without 'shrinking' it first.
If you want an external drive, Fujitsu just has released it's new drives in 30,40 or 60 Gbyte. It's USB 2.0, up to 480 Mbits/s. Only 200g without external power supply. They're called HandyDrive.
anydvd? hmmm... i c i c... let's check it out.
found a hdd for $159.00 and its a 120gb at tigerdirect.com
