Re: Burning DVD Backups

No problem Five. Let me know if I can help.

Yeah, Winger,.....
About the only good thing was the girl got sick during the show (no not drinking and much as I like to joke it wasn't because of Winger although that's my story ) sooooo...we had arrived late to the show as it was so I ended up seeing the tail-end of Poison (my god, what was I thinking!), saw some of Winger until she went funky and ended up out in the area where the venders are for about an hour waiting for her to get restabalized...during which I got to listen to the BulletBoys come out and do their thing (actually didn't sound bad), and then left before they were done. Man, I really missed the $12.95 per ticket that night (or whatever it cost)

Remember the song "The Things We Do For Love"

Re: Burning DVD Backups

what a drag! some of the hair metal bands weren't half bad... some of them were 100% bad!! I can't remember those Winger songs, that's a blessing!

I think they were just marketing to teenage girls anyways...

Re: Burning DVD Backups

BTW, if you go into the Forums on the BttB website, the first post listed is about the settings for a DVD...nice discussion. Reading it reminded me a bit of why I have my settings the way they are. You can make the max size bigger than what I use (4450.00) as that is something of a known value (you're telling the program what it is after all), but depending on what you're burning your tree size can vary a decent amount. For instance, if you are burning say, 5 shows with 10 files (tracks) each, your file structure will be much smaller than if you're burning a random compilation of mp3's, which could be hundreds of files in different folders....or thousands of pictures which would really complicate the tree depending on how they're broken up. I remember I just went with a nice size that I considered "buffered" so I wouldn't have to readjust each time I burnt a disc with different stuff. The 50 megs left (prior to the creation of the tree) before you hit the 4.5 gig limit isn't that big of a deal to me. Of course, you could create settings for different types of DVD burns. YMMV

Question Re: Burning DVD Backups

If you want to get the maximum bang for your buck with using up as much room as possible on a disc I'd recommend this program. It'll take whatever folders/files you have...and figure out the jigsaw puzzle of what needs to be burned to take the maximum amount of space up on your DVD. I just finished up doing the transfer of "thousands" of lossless CD's to DVD a couple months ago and it was invaluable to me for this, not to mention the time saved from me trying to do this myself (and I still use it). Usually as long as I had about 5-6 gigs worth of shows in a folder it would figure out the best way to rack and stack them....but most of the time while transferring I kept about 20-30 gigs available as a pool.
With a reference to the thread I put up about collection database programs...once I had all the DVD's burned (which took me about 3-4 months), it only took me about a day and a half to input all the DVD's into my database (using the program I use). I'm still sweeping up some of the rough parts to make it "prettier" but at least everything's there.

EDIT: WIth a note to RD's comment about getting as close to 3.7 gigs...Burn To The Brim will let you specify that amount too
Would you mind sharing your DVD settings in Burn to the Brim? I downloaded it and played around with CDs, but there aren't default settings for DVDs yet and I need to archive about 150 Gigs of music offline so that would be a great help to know how to do it correctly.

Thanks,
Skibum

Re: Burning DVD Backups

I like the sound of this!

I'm always puzzling out what combos of folders to burn manually

Re: Burning DVD Backups

Same line of questioning...

Does anyone burn the DVD's as appendable copies? I've started that, assigning DVD's to a specific artist/band then as more shows of the group comes in I simply pull out the disc and add the new show to it.

Of course this only works for groups that I intend to keep getting or have a lot to add

Stones, Floyd, Zep, etc.

Re: Burning DVD Backups

I got an error message after installing and trying to run this program. I have rebooted and reinstalled and still get the same thing. Ideas?

Sounds like you need to set up your aspi drivers....if you go into the BttB forums there's a post about a new link for them:

https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum....orum_id=164745

Since I haven't messed with this for a long time this is the extent of the tech support I can give on this unless I do some refresh reading...
