Music Dvd Versus My Dvd



I transferred 5 audio tapes (MPG3 files), ca 6 hours of music. I made a Music DVD with a menu from the 6 hours and it takes only about 3,5 GB up on the DVD. Since I wanted to add a small slideshow to it, I used Videowave and made 5 chapters and the same 6 hours of music (incl. the small slideshow) suddenly take up 13 GB. Can anybody explain why the same length of audio takes so much less capacity as a music DVD and since I like the possibilities of MY DVD better. Is there any way I can fit my 6 hours on 1 DVD (4.7GB or dual layer DVD 8.5GB?

Thank you

Explain it, sure, easy…


The "Music DVD" had 6 hours of "video" encoded at resolution and bitrate of next to nothing.


VideoWave/MyDVD will not go that low so you are trying to pack 6+ hours of stuff on a disc that will only hold 1 or 2 hours at those bitrates.


I do not believe that for $100 you will find any software capable of doing what you want. I think you could do it, but your video portion will suffer very badly.


Try burning both to Folders then using Video Copy and Convert to put it together. See what you think.
