that's faulty logic though, what if you download 6x of digital lords? They are very similar kind of movies so if you burn by themes, you know
you've now got more than 200+mb of wasted space
. DVD-rw costs more than DVD-r, and the 800mb CDRs cost more than cdrs and they have a shorter life span and lower compatibabilty when data reaches the outer region of the cdr. And overburning with DVD-r is nearly always an unmittigated diaster, read: won't you take me down, to coaster town!
I use hdd for storage anyway so its not overly an issue for me, but i still think that 800mb will cause a big problem for people. I will probably hack and cut these rips at some point so they are correctly sized (when i get some complete anyway
), but that unfortunately means that i won't be able to reshare them after i've formatted them.
I'm just reluctant to leave them in "high quality" since traditionally, oversized rips have moved since its usually an indication of a one-click-rip operation, or some other problems.
IMO 744mb is the best size for the modern "1cd", since you can fit perfectly 6 movies onto DVD-r, and you can fit 4 movies on with a 1/3rd dvdr too
AFR is the way forward
700mb retain compatability for cdr users mind, and 744mb can be burnt onto 90min cdrs, whilst not making them too big to burn onto DVD-r.
Anyway, my main reason of curiosity is why 800mb? They are mostly all that size, which is why i can't figure out why it was chosen over, say 1/6th DVDr, or 700mb. just seems quite an odd choice.
