[SOLVED] How to shrink ISO onto 4.7gb DVD?

Post by SunWorks » Mon Aug 06, 2018 2:35 pm

Hello,
I've got a 5.3gb ISO file that i want to shrink-to-fit a 4.7gb DVD.

Used to use K9Copy to do this, but no longer supported.

Any ideas how to shrink / compress this ISO down to 4.7 disc size?

Thank you in advance.

I suggest moving the data off the main HDD/SSD before you make the ISO,

importing data from an external USB drive is the easiest way to get the job done.

or


just put the full ISO onto a Flash Drive with USB Image Writer, the smallest ones now are 16gB

This is not applicable. It may be "the easiest way to get (your) job done", but it does not answer my question.

I know how to put it onto a USB Flash Drive and am fully aware of the different sizes.
I need to burn a 5.3gb ISO movie onto a DVD disc that holds 4.7gb.

K9Copy used to do this, but is no longer supported and would prefer not to use non-supported software.

Regards.

DeVeDe will do that.

Hi SunWorks (Clinton),

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

If it is a video or movie, there are various techniques and application options for reducing their file sizes. MakeMKV can also rip DVD/Blu-Ray discs into digital video ".mkv" files which can then be resized or burned to a DVD disc or easily converted to another video file format.

There is a fork of K9Copy called "K9copy-reloaded" for Linux Mint 17.x, 18.x using their PPA or deb files, and Linux Mint 19.x users can use the deb file below.

The k9copy v3.03 links below installed in my Linux Mint 19 after it removed the "libavcodec-ffmpeg-extra56" package, which I can re-install. The menu shortcut did not come up, but if I created a new shortcut launcher with just "k9copy" as the command, that works; I could also edit the menu or original shortcut to only use k9copy. It appears to be working.

I could not get the newest versions to install because of dependency issues, but the link below has a method.

k9copy-reloaded packages for Ubuntu 14.04 and newer and Debian Jessie

I would not have bothered to even make a post had you included "Movie" in the first post....
ISO for most of us, means an Operating System and in your case, I assumed it was the OS plus data files.

Bad assumption. (But a common one among Linux users.) ISO is International Standards Organization, and they have standards for all kinds of different things, and disc formats is just one of them. (I used to have to know about a bunch of ISO standards in my engineering work.) I almost fell into the same bad assumption, but I thought, No, I'd better check this out and see what he means. Glad I did. I think the ISO standard for CDs and DVDs is ISO9660.

"...how to shrink ISO onto 4.7gb DVD..."
The dvd95 package will do what you need...
  • DVD95 is an GNOME application to convert DVD9 to DVD5 (4.7GB).
    o Onboard version of vamps and dvdauthor.
    o Interface is pretty simple to use.
    o Shrinking factor can be 2-pass computed (best results) or a 1-pass adaptive guess-as-we-go compression method may be chosen (faster).
    o DVD can be converted to a file tree or a burnable ISO9660 file, if that's what you want.
    o Result can be played through xine, vlc, mplayer, Windows98SE (!) it's plain-vanilla DVD MPEG1 encoding.
    o Removes menus, titles or sound tracks you mark as 'unwanted'.
    o Unpacks the movie frame-by-frame and recodes it using just enough MPEG compression so the whole thing will fit in the target medium.
    o With libdvdcss2 it will compress directly from a defective-by-design CSS protected retail disk. Mint's optional Install Codecs has this library.
  • Quite Interesting:
    o A DVD feature-length movie without compression needs 160GB of storage.
    o Many-many-lots of x86 processors have opcodes to support an MPEG1 codec. The files are bigger, but encode and decode are much faster than, say, Theora.
    o ISO3103 can help if you have a large conversion in progress... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3103

Thanks for the answer. Actually this was one of the first programs I looked for as I have used this in years previous, but do not see it available any more for Mint 19 Cinnamon 64.

Would be nice to install!
I ended up using DeVeDe NG.
thank you.

What do you have against movies/videos?
It's a very good way to teach topics and putting the movie onto DVD is very useful for where bandwidth is measured/limited.

There's a lot of the world where the technology is still very useful and just right.

if some-one did mention a file size of >4.7Gb & they didn't include the word "Microsoft",,
then I'd assume that they were referring to some Movie(s) & not some System ISO :mrgreen:
- - those win-10 ISOs can be well over that 4.7Gb in size :(

ISO in, and of, itself gives us no idea what data is held in that container format, It's a bit like saying, I have a piece of rope, can I tow my car with it. I, too, initially thought of an pile of documents or an operating system. Movies were well down the list of things I was thinking about. Given that there are many video compression formats about, it is not the sort of question I'd expect from anyone but a rank newbie. SO, in this case, I understand AZgl1500's confusion.

Anyway, glad you have your answer.

Speaking strictly for myself here: not a thing, but i don't know how to get them onto a 4.7 GB DVD, so knowing that it was about that would have stoped me from responding too. We don't all have the same experience, so we can't all answer the same questions.

I'm happy to see that your issue is solved; I'll go ahead and mark the thread as solved for you, this time.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
