Default Help (again)


I've finally worked out how to burn DVD's using this


tutorial, but now the file size, that I want to put on DVD has rocketed to over 5gb.

The disks I have are 4.7gb, so does anyone know how to make .VOB smaller?

There was originally one 700mb file, but now the file is split into 6, and each is over 1gb

Anyone know?

Ahh, I do have that, but I don't know how to use it.

Any chance of a link, or a written tutorial, on how to use it, mate?

Any chance you could ask how to make .vob files smaller for me Zenroya? or anyone else who has an account on there.

it wouldn't be a bin file or something? If so, alot of times the file is larger due to burning info contained on it, but when copied is the correct size. Guess it just depends on what was used to create the file.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
