How to copy a DVD movie to blank DVD without any loss of quality?

If your DVD movie is DVD5 which is smaller than 4.7 GB (which is actually 4.38 GB in windows), you can copy the full disc to a 4.7 GB blank DVD. Please refer to Option A.

If your DVD movie is DVD9 which is larger than 4.7 GB (which is actually 4.38 GB in windows), you have 4 choices as shown below.
1. You can copy the full disc to a 8.5 GB blank DVD (DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL). But blank DL DVD is expensive and has more compatibility issues with DVD burners and players.
2. You can copy the main movie only, excluding unwanted audios and subtitles, to a 4.7 GB blank DVD. Please refer to Option B. But some main movies are still larger than 4.7 GB (which is actually 4.38 GB in windows).
3. You can split the full disc to two 4.7 GB blank DVDs. Our program will copy the beginning of main movie, menus and extras on disc 1, the rest of main movie on disc 2. Please refer to Option C.
4. If your DVD is an episodic DVD, you can copy selected episodes only. Please refer to Option D.
