Dual Layer Compression



So i stuck in a dual layer DVD+R to burn in toast. You hit "compress to fit" but it says there is a 53% reduction no matter if it is a dual layer or a DVD? Why does Toast 8 and 7 feel there is a need for a 53% reduction if you have twice the data size as a regular 4gig DVD? Is this just a bug?

The fit-to-DVD compression always is aimed at fitting a DL-sized VIDEO_TS to a single-layer disc. There is no option to fit something that is too big for a dual-layer disc to fit the DL media. If your content is not too big for a DL disc then there is no need for compression at all. You can turn off the Fit-to-DVD checkbox. Also, I think Toast doesn't compress in any case when DL media is used. When I choose Save as Disc Image Toast asks if I want the disc image to fit a single-layer or DL disc.
