    Trying to burn back up DVD discs > 4GB using Toast Ti 6. Anyone know if Toast 6 can compress the disc to fit on SL disc?

    No, that's what they made Popcorn for. But Popcorn is now included with the current version of Toast. I still use T6. DVD2OneX also known as DetoX is much better and faster at compressing a folder to fit, so you can burn it as data>udf in Toast.

    If you do a main feature rip with MTR most of the time it will fit one disc anyway.

    Popcorn2 is $50 http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/popcorn/standard/overview.html
    Unless you have a G3 and can't use later versions of Toast then buying Toast 7 or 8 or DetoX is a better deal in my opinion.

    Thanks, I have DETOX 2.1.1 but if does not allow you to customize menus in the Join Vob mode like Toast will do in the Video mode. It's that I can't seem to get Toast 6.1.1 to do the job. I'm trying to put a favorite Twilight Zone together by joining various episodes from several discs onto one SL disc.

    do an end run around it.
    Get MpegStreamclip
    (along with the QT Mpeg-2 component)
    open your .VOBs there, save out as
    QT .mov files (using Photo-JpegA or
    3ivx d45R1 at its highest quality setting)
    and then author in toast using the Video-->DVD
    selection.

    MpegStreamclip will make the files slightly smaller,
    and Toast will compress ( in authoring) to fit them
    onto a SL disc, and you get your menus. If the disc
    ends up being slightly bigger than 4.37GB, then use DETOX
    to shrink slightly to fit SL, and you'll still have great quality.
