Windows 7: Archived movies -- how to get back on to standard DVD's

Archived movies -- how to get back on to standard DVD's

Hi all

To those that mess around with this stuff a lot

I've archived many movies to Disc using the very excellent AnyDVD software - I've copied them as ISO's - complete copies of the originals whatever the size but obviously removed region coding B/S and CSS.

If I want to play these again on a normal DVD player (not a Computer) which can play DVD RW / DVD RAM etc how can I get say a 6 GB iso dual layer or whatever the original iso format is on to one or more 4.7 GB standard DVD's so I can play the disc on the DVD player.

I don't mind losing subtitles, different sound tracks etc as I've still got these on the original ISO copy on disc but I want to keep the HIGHEST POSSIBLE screen resolution -- preferably the original if possible.

Eventually I'll be able to STREAM the archived ISO to the TV but It will be a while before I set up a decent multi-media server.

Divx is no good -- it compresses the image too much for a decent high quality large size LCD TV.

The DVD player also does a really good job of upscaling "normal" DVD's to 1080p - very little discernable difference between a DECENT upscaled normal DVD and a "Blu Ray" one --- and without the added complexity of having to go through hoops with Blu Ray protection -- so you can play a DISC YOU HAVE PAID FOR on YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT.

Don't you just hate all this stuff stopping you from using the media wherever you want -- didn't work for music and its not going to work for video media too -- but that's aanother whole issue.

Never thought of that one

As AnyDVD has already removed region and CSS this works a treat. Note it works FAST as well since I use Alcohol 52% (The FREE version) to mount the DVD ISO as a virtual dvd -- this has no problem mounting D/L discs etc. Haven't tried Blu Ray yet as I haven't got any.

attempted to Rep you another + 1 for this but it says spread it around !!!!!
