What does more than 4.7GB in size mean?
GB is a measure of capacity. 1 GB means 1 Gigabyte, which is also equal to 1,024 MB (Megabyte). Most of the recent DVD Movies are more than 4.7GB in size, old movies are usually smaller than 4.7GB. Reason being is that most of them now have special features, specials, multiple languages and more that take a lot more space. Most of the ripping programs refer the capacity of the DVD Movie using Megabytes. Lets start.

  1. Hardware needed:
    • DVD Burner
    • DVD-ROM (Optional - for ripping only)
  2. FREE Programs (discontinued) are Needed:
