    I have an ISO image of a video DVD that would burn as a 6.7 gig DVD. Of course I could go out and buy double layer DVDs, but it would be nice to be able to just use one of the many 4.7 gig ones I've already got. It's no problem to shrink a physical DVD to fit on a 4.7 with DVD Shrink. However, it's not a physical DVD. It's an ISO image of one.

    For ISO rendering programs, I have both Power ISO and Roxio. I use the latter most. Is it possible to "burn" my ISO image to the hard drive as some kind of virtual DVD and then use that as if it were a DVD with DVD Shrink to get it down to the 4.7 gigs I need to put it on a normal DVD?

    Just extract the iso file with Power ISO to a folder on your hard drive then use DVD Shrink, DVDFab or even Convertxtodvd to convert to dvd 5.

    Yeah, DVD Shrink works fine for languages removal and quality reduction for burning on 4.7GB normal DVD

    What you're mentioning here is known as mounting an ISO image, which can be done via numerous software packages. Have a look at acrsn's post (specifically section 14) for some free ones. I use Virtual CloneDrive myself.

    dvdshrink is the easiest, lightest, and best program for this.
    I do not think it reads from iso (can read from folder and/or dvd). That is the reason for using power iso.

    Simple. The chipset natively supports 6 sata. So, 4 hdd OF 2 TB each, and 1 of 1 TB. The usage is close to 5.4 tb in movies, etc. In addition, the motherboard (sabertooth x58) has 2 additional marvell sata 6 gb/s connections, but I do not use it.
    9 TB is overkill but my CPU case and other hardware (PSU, ups) can take it quite easily. Plus, I prefer stuff online rather than stored on a hard disk offline. Backups of docs, photos, music, and software are on e-sata.

    That sounds almost familiar;Someone at the old TriValley Growers said the same thing.
    My XT had a 21 meg hard drive.:jump:And to expand to a full 640 KB cost me over $ 200.00.
    DOS was the thing....
    As I've said,"I are ancient.".:biggrin:
