ImgBurn vs AnyDVD internal ripper

    I've noticed some differences between the rips made by ImgBurn (with AnyDVD enabled) and the ones made by the AnyDVD internal ripper.
    With ImgBurn, the ripped files sizes are always the same as the original ones.
    With AnyDVD internal ripper, some file sizes are smaller then the original ones.

    Here is an example:

    Original: VTS_09_6.VOB - 338,249,728 bytes
    ImgBurn rip: VTS_09_6.VOB - 338,249,728 bytes
    AnyDVD rip: VTS_09_6.VOB - 314,910,720 bytes

    Is this behaviour normal and why the files ripped by AnyDVD are, sometimes, smaller than the original ones?

    My understanding is that when the AnyDVD ripper is used it does some remastering and when AnyDVD is used simply in the background and an image is created via ImgBurn or CloneDVD that remastering isn't done. The same is the case when you just copy-and-paste rather than using the AnyDVD ripper.

    If I'm wrong I'm sure I'll be corrected. Am I wrong, James? :)

    No. Clonedvd, in the strictest sense, always remasters (the original layer break position cannot be retained when using Clonedvd:

    In cases where structural protection exists, ripping with Imgburn is not recommended because not all the structural protection will be removed when Anydvd is running in the background.

    Ripping with Clonedvd or Anydvd ripper are better options when dealing with discs containing structural protection.

    If one wishes to use Imgburn, it should be used after ripping first with either Clonedvd or Anydvd ripper.

    If the original disc contains structural protection, Anydvd ripper produces a rip that is devoid of structural protection. The same can't be said for rips produced by imgburn with Anydvd running in the background.

    Actually, I meant CloneCD when I wrote CloneDVD. My mistake. :eek: Yeah, CloneDVD remasters.
