Hard drive copies break at 1.048544 kb

Question

I burned a DVD on DVD-R using MyDVD in Roxio 10. The video size is usually less than 2 GB. I'm trying to save copies onto my external hard drive to make new copies in case the original DVD copy degrades. Using Video Copy and Convert, I transfer a copy to the hard drive. The folder shows that the digital copy (identified as a Power DVD File) has a BREAK at 1.048544 kb and the remainder (usually less than 300 kb) gets completed in a new file. 1). Is there a way to ensure that the entire 2GB video appears as a single file? 2). If not, how do I ensure that a new DVD copy does not have an unacceptable break? Must I use videowave again to assemble a complete DVD?

Thanks

Dave

First of all, lets establish what program you have. You state you are using Roxio 10. There is no Roxio 10 but there is a program called Easy Media Creator 10 (EMC 10) and the newest version called Roxio Creator 2010. There is a 2 year/version difference between the two. To avoid a lot of confusion, please use the correct name of the program.

 

Exactly how did you "transfer" the DVD to you hard drive? Did you copy to a Folder set or an image file?

A standard video DVD consists of a number of files contained in a folder named Video_TS. The files in this folder will have the extension ifo, bup and vob. The vob files are the actual video files and each file cannot be be larger then 1.084 Gb> there may be several of these vob files of that size plus a file smaller. This is the standard. So if your transfer created one 1.084GB and a smaller file, everything is correct.

 

To create a new DVD from the transferred DVD video files, simply point VCC to the Video_TS folder that should have been created on your hard drive.
