how to manipulate amount of "pad" ???
I have a set of video files that form a DVD image.
I.E. foe instance:
Now collectively these files are 3.9Gb in size which should fit on
a single ayer 4.7Gb DVD media just fine but when I try to burn
it to disk using growisofs I get the following error:
growisofs -v -Z /dev/scd1 -speed=4 -dvd-video videos/wdibc2/
Executing 'mkisofs -v -dvd-video videos/wdibc2/ | builtin_dd of=/dev/scd1 obs=32k seek=0'
mkisofs 2.01a17 (i686-suse-linux)
The pad was 1147114 for file VTS_01_1.VOB

Now I have tried creating an ISO but that ends up being 5.3Gb in size.
I have done some research on the pad size and the *.IFO files
but it seems to be a VERY complex subject that looks like it requires
some additional tools (all Windows based probably) to manilpulate the
pad size. Can anyone shed any light on this problem? Is there a way
to fix this? Can it be done with any Linux based tools or am I stuck
trying to somehow find the appropriate tools on a Windows box?
