I'm using Dvd2OneX not for slimming down DVDs — you can choose your own size  — but for repairing bad RIPs. I'm running Dvd2One 2.4.1 successfully now on Mavericks 10.9.1.

It does take some time. No crashes! What I put in didn't play in VLC. The result works perfectly.

So... any plans on updating this app ever again? Your forum has recent posts and the admin is responding to said recent posts... but the app hasn't been updated in 2 years.

This app is showing its obvious age lately... more glaringly with new DVD titles. The only workaround I've found for DVD rips that simply won't work with DVD2oneX is to rip the "main movie" only using Mac DVDRipper Pro... and then opening the main movie folder with DVD2oneX. This allows the app to see the DVD structure of newer DVDs... whereas before it would show the data as 0 bytes or a few hundred kilobytes or some obscure incorrect number.

There really isn't any other app like this on the Mac, so if you could at least inform your customers of an impending update, it would be much appreciated. Being vague on your forums isn't helpful for anyone.

Should be the standard for compressing DVDs.

I agree with many that are reporting a significantly lessor amount of functionality/reliability/stability as time goes on. It used to be a great app for condensing/compressing Video_TS Folders down to one 4.7 Disc while retaining exceptional quality. Now I cannot even get it to compress two 3.8 GB Video_TS Folders without the app continuously crashing less then midway through the process. It's to bad to because I ALWAYS relied on the app for such task and now it appears I can no longer :(

So first try to have DVD2One convert a DVD and it fails because of "source protected". It was the Lord of the Rings 2 part DVDs which I wanted used this to combine into a single video file.

Can't say I'll buy this as such, but I'd advise anyone else to first try it on your own to see if it's worth a steep $50.

You need to rip(unprotect) the source first using e.g. ripit, mactheripper
DVD2OneX is for remastering your (unprotected) DVD at the best quality available

All of the advice is nice, but I want to burn on a single-layer blank DVD that's approx. 4.3 GB in size. One used to be able to do that. Now one can't on many occasions. The fact is, there's no solution to what I want to do. C'est la vie.

See reply below. Roxio Popcorn or Toast should do the compression you're looking for.

I've used MDRP as of late because RipIt can't seem to handle newer protection schemes. However, MDRP isn't that good, either. It give me the option of ripping either a 64GB video_ts folder (literally, 64 GB) or a 6.8 GB iso file.

I don't have any kind of dual-layer burner. I need a final video_ts folder that's roughly 4.3 GB in size. DVD2One no longer seems able to provide this for me. I wrote to the developer about this, and I was told to try the new version.

But no luck. I wasn't halfway through shrinking, and I was already past 6 GB in size. (I usually get a final product that's about 16 GB in size. Even with the previous version.)

So, are we at the end of an era here? Anyone know of any alternatives?

Thanks

It is not always possible to go from 64GB! to 4.3GB
This is a huge and unlikely compression ratio
Depending on the source it is not possible.

If you're being offered a 64GB VIDEO_TS then something is clearly wrong, given that a retail dual-layer DVD is ~9GB. Just try ripping to ISO--sometimes ripping to ISO will succeed where straight to VIDEO_TS fails. You can simply mount the ISO (double-click it in the Finder), then open the VIDEO_TS from the mounted volume.

MDRP3 gives you several options for the RIP. Usually I just use "Full disc image" and select what I want in Handbrake. Only a BluRay should be creating 64Gb and they are not really supported on Mac.

The disc shows 64 GB because of the protection scheme that is used on it. It will typical show 99 titles on the disc as well, only one of which is the "correct" one. Best option on those is to either rip the disc to an ISO or extract only the main feature.

As for a way to compress down to a single-sided DVD, I think Roxio Popcorn and Toast both have those features.

It's been years since the last update and this is all they've worked on? This some kind of a joke? Also, why is the GUI still so ugly? It makes babies cry.

Okay I've tried 3 different brands of DVDs, and they all keep giving me this error: http://i.imgur.com/9kW1A.png

Tested these discs with the previous version and I get no such errors. They all burn perfectly. Hold off on this version until they fix the bugs, guys.

Here's the previous version of the app in case you guys forgot to back it up: http://min.us/mJ6md5CXs

This stinks. This is my go-to app for burning discs. This app is still outstanding. I'll upgrade when the bugs have been resolved.

Yeah, I know. It's been working great for me for years. This is a little disappointing. But with an update cycle of... one update every year it seems... this time a little longer... I home the issue is addressed sooner than later. =\

Its been a reliable application and stable; with the exception of this upgrade. There shouldn't be update several times a year. I hope Erwin van den Berg rolls out an update soon. Hang in there.

Something appears to be amiss with this new version (2.4.2). Each time I've tried to burn a disc, I'm greeted with an error that says "There is not enough free space on the inserted media. Available:0 MB Needed:4.14 GB". DVD-R's I'm using burn fine in other programs. (If you upgrade to this new version, hang on to the old one just in case you get the same error!)

Yes, I get the same exact error... despite the fact that the previous version works perfect with the SAME EXACT DISC. Good job, devs. Great update. *sarcasm*
