  • Clone vs Full disc

    Please let me understand the difference between two methods.

    I always make a full copy of purchased dvd into my hard drive. If the movie has special effects and (or) very long, I use a DL blank disc and burn it. I prefer a DVD+R for movies with less than 5GB and select "movie only" feature. The cost is the reason. Some compression to fit that much data onto 4300 MB blank disc is fine with me.

    Is there any advantage of cloning the disc and creating an iso file, then burning it onto blank disc?

    Dear Skoy,

    The difference between these two modules are as below:

    Clone: Make perfect 1:1 Blu-ray clone.

    Full Disc: Make perfect 1:1 Blu-ray copy or you can save space by chooseing remove HD audio or compress to bd25.

        I disagree, cloning does NOT make an exact copy of the disc. My cloned copies are usually smaller in size than the original disc and missing titles/tracks. For example, when I cloned the movie A Simple Favor, the clone was 2GB smaller than the original disc, missing several titles & when I compared the list of titles between the original disc & the clone using DVDFab Player 5, the clone showed many of the titles to have a length of 0:15 when the original disc showed a length of 1:56.

          The problem you reported here is not because that Clone create a file of less size. Clone is 1:1 output.

          Please provide a purchase link for movie "A Simple Favor" and post the related dvdfab_internal.log file.

          Also, please make a folder containing everything in the original disc volume EXCEPT those .m2ts files under \...BDMV\Stream, zip it and attach it to our FTP. Please check PM for FTP info, thank you.

            A clone is a exact copy minus the copy protection that also takes room on the disk by using clone and burn it will burn everything as it is on the disk except the copy protection without any compression at all.

            If you want to compress it or just copy main movie or full disk with English soundtracks say or just English subtitles then you don't use clone as clone copy's all the soundtracks and all the different subtitles on the disk.This is why a clone is bigger than a full disk.
