I thought that I should backup my DVD's and knew that I had this program and that it should be possible to fit a 9.4 GB DVD onto a 4.7 DVD.

But when I tried this I get a message that there isn't enough room on the selected source!

What's wrong?

Is there something wrong with the discs I bought (FujiFilm 1-16x)? Our is it something wrong with my drivers or with the DVD-recorder (Nec DVD-RW 3520A)

I hope you can help me, and I be glad to answer any questions you might have.

you can't fit 9.4 gigs of data onto a smaller space like a 4.7.... In order for you to backup a 9 gig dvd you need a burn that is capable of burning dual layer and then compatable media.

the reason people can burn a 9gig movie dvd is that they strip out all the extras and stuff and just go with the basics.

Yeah they remove the extras sometimes although generally the way they do it is to take the movie and rip it into a smaller size file then burn it, you can get them down to 4gigs there is lots of tutorials its quite easy to do with the correct tools and it takes a couple of hours. You can actually keep the menus and things like that and extra content as long as its not to large and you rip it as well.

However i dont think im allowed to give you specifics as in order to do this you bypass copyright protection and the legalities of it are a bit grey you are technically allowed to have a backup but arent allowed to break the copy protection to do it, so its complicated, however using google and i have a link posted in free apps thread above you might want to read through see if you can find something that will do the job.
