How come when I burn DVDs it uses more memory then when other people burn DVDs?

by on April 2, 2010

Q: When I burn a DVD it takes up between 5-7 GB’s of memory. However, when other people have done this and copied them for me it only uses about 700-800MB of memory. How do I do this myself?

    Miles, burning a DVD on a computer can at times be an intensive process. Things like drive capabilities, dedicated cache, amount of data burned, transfer rate, etc.
    If you could please be a little more specific and provide additional information please. Also, as an additional source of information on burning you might try afterdawn.com

    I am using CloneDVD to copy a dvd i have. When it copies it i make sure i remove all the titles i dont want (ie the making of…… bits). But when it copies it, it saves in dozens of files and will only play on my PC via WMfiles. It takes up about 5-6 GB too. Whereas, i have a copy a friend gave me of the same film, where it was only 800MB but exactly the same quality. Im only trying to back up my DVDs onto and external hard drive, but using soo much memory is proving problematic.
