But please post your also the more info the better.
Do you reencode using DVD studio pro by changing the bitrate?

Knowledge is power

I should be able to post in the next few days. My OSX driver for my ADSL modem is due in sept.

To re encode you.

Extract the .m2v file.

Then you use MacMPEG2Decoder to convert the .m2v file into a QT file.

Then using QT pro you export it to a MPEG2 file where u get the option to adjust the bitrate using the slide scale.

Sorry missed one thing. Yes the QT codec for the MPEG2 comes with DVD Studio Pro

Hi,
i had some experience with DVD copying and much more questions the last days.
I started with "MacDude"s guide and made an Image of the DVD with DVD Extractor. When i trie to open one of these images with toast (5.0 for Classic or 5.2 for OS-X) i get allways an error message that the image is not valid (i donīt remember the exact message and i delete the images). I burned one of this images but it couldnīt read by the DVD player or DVD software. Is there something special to take care of ??? The DVD content was round about 3 GB.
-
But i was able to made a 1:1 copy with Toast. I thought this is not possible ??? On another DVD which has nearly the same size i was not able to make a running 1:1 copy. To what does this depend?

you have to use a program like dvd studio pro to format it correctly
read this

***********.cdrom-guide.com/forums/s...&threadid=22119

mac dude hasnt posted his guide yet he just explained how to reduce the bitrate to fit a movie that is over 4.38gb to fit onto one disk

It depends on what they use to protect the disk determines if can be copied by directly by toast (after you back a disk up correctly toast can make a 1:1 copy of that with no problem)

DVD extractor decodes the files so they can be read as mpeg 2 and ac3 audio filesand dvd studio pro
remuxes(puts them back together in the right UDF DVD format) and reencodes it for burning with toast

I forgot, his tutorial was made before there was a mpeg2 codec for quicktime.

I used to just split the movie up and put it onto 2 disks his post does explain that
