I use Ripit to back up my DVDs to my hard drive and convert them for my ipod. Tonight I decided to go a step further and download Roxio Popcorn 4 so I could burn off physical copies of my discs to have on hand. It shows in menu that my DVD files have been resized to fit on a 4.7 gb disc, but when the multiplexing is done is says "Not enough space on disc, 6.4 (or the such) gbs are needed, you do not have enough room on disc." This is somewhat infuriating because I thought the whole point of the program was to shrink DVD 9 file sizes down to something that can fit on a 4.7 gb blank disc. Anyone run into this? Thanks in advance for any help.

Unfortunately, the topic delves into the areas that are not allowed to be discussed here (the ripping and resizing and copying of copy protected movies) so it may be hard to get a solid answer to your question.

Just thought you should know

oops. I didn't know. I'm not doing anything that would be considered illegal, these are movies that I own.

Unfortunately, in the US, that's illegal (especially if you have to break encryption to extract the movie - it sucks, I know and I personally am a believe in fair use) BUT they follow US laws for the boards here for topics that involve duplicating video... Basically, the only thing legal to discuss are really videos made by you/your family or video that you own the copyrights to that doesn't require breaking encryption.

Ok, let's say I have a 8 GB of home movie footage that I shot that's all in one file. Popcorn 4 is multiplexing the footage into what it says is going to fit on a 4.7gb but when the multiplexing is done, it say's "This requires 5.3gbs of space" etc...Any reasons why this would be happening? I'm regretting purchasing this product if this is going to keep happening. Thanks for any help.
