    I just copied my first DVD using CloneDVD mobile. Does anyone know how to change the aspect ratio? I think it's saving in wide screen as opposed to full screen.

    Can anyone help me on this:)

    under the zoom settings option on the last stage before converting you can drop down a menu to give you choices of picture zoom.

    First of all: What is the aspect ratio of the device on which you intend to play the resulting video file? 4:3 (Archos 404) or 16:9 (Archos 504 is actually 30:17!) or something else?
    Edit the Devices.ini file and locate a suitable profile. (If your device isn't listed you can copy one that's similar and paste it in as a new profile.)

    I created this one for my Archos 504 as CloneDVDMobile doesn't have it listed by default

    [Archos 504]
    ScreenRatio=30:17
    Manufacturer=Archos
    Res1=320x240
    Res2=362x272
    Res3=480x360
    Res4=640x480
    Res5=720x540
    ResAna1=320x180
    ResAna2=480x272
    ResAna3=640x360
    ResAna4=720x407
    ResAna5=852x480
    AllowNativeTVResolution=1
    VCodec=mpeg4
    lavcopts=vcodec=mpeg4:acodec=mp3
    VTag=DIVX
    Acodec=mp3
    ARate=48000
    ABRate=96
    MVolume=20
    Format=avi -noodml
    FileType=avi
    Quality=30
    useMencoder=1
    SubTitle=1
    MaxVBitrate=3000

    CloneDVDMobile will then fit the DVD video into the correct size frame.
    With the screen ratio set to 16:9 (or 30:17) I found that the Zoom options are removed. I only have the cinemascope checkbox available

    Note that if the source film is shot in 2.35:1 ration you will get the black bars top and bottom. Cinemascope Zoom removes the black bars

    Is the 504 using the same screen as a 604? I just purchased a 604 and the screen resolution appears to be 16:9.06 (480x272). Or are you talking about the physical measured aspect ratio?

    I am refering to the screen pixel WidthxHeight ratio: 480x272 works out at 30:17, whether this minor difference makes any difference to CloneDVDMobile I don't know.

    Oops, I guess the math wasn't that obvious to me. :eek:
