4.4 Gb Dvd Compression



I think this is a bug, but, when I set compress DVD thats too big for a single layer DVD and make a disc image, it always comes out as 4.4 GB. Well blank DVDs only hold 4.38GB and i can't seem to get toast to compress even more. Seems like toast has an incorrect setting for a size for a single layer DVD. Anyone know a fix around this bug, Never had this when i used popcorn back in the day.

It says its too big (4.4GB will not fit onto 4.38GB). If i have compression on, it will just recompress.

I haven't seen this but it could happen if the audio is PCM/AIFF such as is created by iDVD. Toast can only compress the video portion and not the audio. When the audio is uncompressed PCM it can take up so much space on the disc that there isn't enough room remaining for the video at Toast's maximum "requantization". If your source video is a dual-layer disc image created by iDVD or something else with PCM audio then that could be the issue.
