For this article, we want to share the experience which how to backup a single DVD-9 movie to a single layer DVD-R or DVD+R disc, using CloneDVD as our transcoder (the thingy that quickly compresses a movie that takes more than 4.36GB of space to fit into one 4.36GB blank DVDR disc) . We will be keeping all the working menus, and whatever extras you would like to keep as well as the main movie. To save quality, and space, we will be mainly getting rid of unwanted foreign language audio tracks.
How to start?
First of all, as always with DVD to DVDR guides, it is highly desirable that you have a DVD recorder, otherwise there’s very little point of actually completing this guide, unless you wish to prepare for the future when you might have one and store the DVD images to your massive 2TB HDD until then. Whether you have a DVD recorder or not, you need to have some form of DVD drive installed on your PC anyway to read the DVD-Video files from your DVD disc.After clone the movies, you also can tranfer them to you iPhone/iPon touch/iPad,etc.
Secondly, you must have at least 10 to 15 gigabytes of free HDD space to rip the original files to your harddrive and then transcode them to fit on a single DVD-R (or DVD+R, obviously they’re both the same size) disc.
