Hi: When using CloneDvd2 22.214.171.124 set to DVD-DL to create an ISO image of Pirates3 (with AnyDvd 126.96.36.199 running) the ISO size is 7,553,920 MB (created in 20.5 minutes). Using DvdDecrypter 188.8.131.52 the ISO size is 7,850,966 MB (created in 13.1 minutes). DvdDecrypter (IFO handling disabled as it gets a BUP file processing error at the end otherwise) is set to leave all the work to AnyDvd (default settings). I have always used DvdDecrypter to put mountable images on my HDD, but Webslinger mentioned in an AnyDvd thread this was unnecessary as the CloneDvd2 capability gives you the same result (and is guaranteed to work with AnyDvd). Now that I have tried his suggestion (but also compared it to my old method to check speed and integrity before going forward with the new method), I am concerned that something is missing given the discrepancy in files sizes (not to mention the 50% longer processing time). Does anyone know if CloneDvd is "skipping" content on Pirates3 or is it just a result of more efficient processing (removing padding) which I can expect with any movie? Original DVD disc size is 7.48 GB (8,039,387,136 bytes) which matches the DvdDecrypter mounted image exactly, whereas CloneDvd2 mounted image is 7.20 GB (7,734,687,744 bytes). I assumed that the ISO image from CloneDvd2 would be the same size, perhaps only CloneCD gives the "exact" image (not that I need that anyway until DL disks get way cheaper).
