Hi i am new at this, just like to know if there is a way to convert regular DVD movies to HD DVD movies?

I tried and convert my DVD to Divx 1080p but it turned out 11.3 gb long, and as we know it holds only 4.7gb on DVD-r. How can i shrink that in 4.7gb? Thanks for help

Why? All you are doing it wasting space on the disc with the scaled SD image bits. It will look just the same as sending 480i/p to a 1080p display and letting the display scale.

You sure you didn't mean the other way around?


I can see wanting to convert HD-DVD to DVD. That would / could have some practical purposes.

What HD DVD player do you have? They should all play just about any type of DVD your throw at them. If you are using burned copies, try using DVD+R and changing the book type to DVD-ROM. Otherwise, use a different player and just watch them as is, you can only lessen the PQ by re-encoding them.

The format has nothing to do with the picture quality. It's the quality of the source. And HD source will usually look better than SD source.
