What you guys do with the dramas?

Post by YouShan » Feb 12th, '06, 05:21

After you guys finish downloading certain dramas and fell in love with them. It is very hard to delete it off the hard drive to make room for another drama. What do you guys do with the dramas you fell in love with. Do you only keep those you love or you keep everything?

I keep everything. I run low on space and burn stuff to data DVD-R. Then I fall behind on downloads. I usually don't even watch most of the stuff before I burn it.

Sounds about right... :P I do the same thing, but will tend to keep Toyohara's dramas on on my hard drive as long as I have the space so I can continue to seed his stuff. It's still all burned to DVD, though, and I'll reload as necessary (any dramas I have, not just his). I usually fall behind in getting things burned off because I'm holding out on hopes that there might be soft subs available soon and I can burn it all together. But as soon as I need space, they get burned to make way for new.

And I keep everything I download. I never know when something is going to grab my interest when it didn't at first.

I burn the ones I really like and think I might watch again down the road. The ones I'm not overly impressed with, I just delete.

Sometimes, I burn the drama before even watching it. I have a dvd player that plays divx files, so that way I can lay on my bed and be comfy while I watch it. ^o^

Can't believe some of you delete these files after downloading them. You spend all that time downloading those files and then just because you either do not like the drama or are running out of hd space you delete them.

For me I download everything to my hard drive. I then back up all the files with subs if they come with them as a data file to dvd-r or dvd+r discs. I can fit six 700mb file on one dvd-/+r disc or eleven 350mb files on one dvd-/+r disc. If I really like a drama I will then record them to a dvd-/+r disc so I can watch them on my Tv. Or make copies of them and share with my friends. I could never delete these files.

Plus what is with some of you putting these on cdr's. With the cost of dvd burners under $40 and blank dvd-/+r's costing $0.20 each what a waste still using a cdr burner.

So far, I tend to burn everything on DVD's (recently started to use DL, to save space). But I'm also thinkig of buying new huge external HDD, because I use both PC and laptop and it's annoying to transfer constantly data.

@aSn*GrL: About burning DVD - it depends on what you want to do - to play it on standard dvd player and TV or just on PC. If it's ony for PC usage, then you can simply put several avi files on single dvd and burn it as data, just like usual cds. If you want to use it with dvd player you will have to use some software to convert it and create DVD-Video ( there is tutorial in TechTalk section on this topic).

Will your DVD player also play XviD files? I have been told that anything capable of playing DivX will also play XviD, because the codecs are very similar (or something like that), but I have no idea whether that's true. It doesn't sound likely… but then again, my DivX-player software seems to play XviD files (even without the XviD codec installed -- I tested it), so maybe it's true…

If it IS true, then I definitely want one of those players.

Yes, there are DVD players that are capable of playing MPEG4 streams (like xvid and divx). But bear in mind that this codecs are constantly developing and not all movies can be played on such player. My parents got one samsung and some movies just won't run :crazy:.

Well so far all the dramas and movies I've downloaded have played just fine. There are actually a few dramas that will have screwy pictures though. They look like they have copy protection or something. o_O But they'll play fine if I play it on my computer.....so I dunno. Denchi Ga Kirerumade was like that, for example.

I like to keep everything on a hard drive because I'm liable to lose something if I burn everything to DVDs. My 75GB hard drive just recently got filled up, and so I went out and got 250GB one.

I wish I could keep everything i download, or even burn them, but lack of money and time doesn't let me do that. So what I generally end up doing is deleting them to make more space, unless it maes my "top 5" list. in which case I have the painfull task of deleting something *else* on my top 5 list.

i delete the ones i didn`t like, and delete the ones i watched already, and thought were ok. if i like one drama a lot, i burn them onto data disks, so i can open them up on my computer next time to watch it. and i buy the ones i totally love, so i can have the package and everything haha.

I also burn them when I'm low on memory. There are a lot of good dramas out there! :lol

I don't have enough space for keeping them on my HDD... ^^

And after I burned them, they become a nice case and a great place somewhere in my shelf... haha... ^^

I have too many Drama that I really love. So I can't relaly keep one on my HDD... Whenever I find a new great series... I'd feel bad about deleting the old one... So I just delete everything... ^^v I even burn stuff, I'm sure that I won't finish watching... :sweat:

I delete most of the series...usually after each episode or 2...unless I'm totally in love with it and it's something I can imagine watching again. Then I make fancy DVD-videos with it XD
The stuff I usually burn are concerts and PVs. Those I know I can watch 1000 times.

I spent this past weekend (stuck indoors from snow) burning every complete drama I had, totaling around 100GB onto data DVD-R. Now I have space to catch up with downloading. That is, of course, after I burn American stuff my friends lent me (Chappelle season 2, Queer As Folk seasons 1 + 2). Simultaneously I have to burn other stuff I owe 2 friends of mine from a long time ago. T__T I need another drive, maybe an external :P

I have most of my stuff in spindles. But, many of my drama DVD-R's are now in CD sleeves/envelopes in a box. I ran out of room for spindles in my desk :lol Note to self: buy more DVD-R's this week O__O
Some of the files lost were related to JTV. :whistling: That was a pain. I still have some folders, some of which contain CDRs that i need to convert but haven't had time.

I'm running out of space really fast.. only 2 GB left. =/

I was thinking of buying another internal HD with enclosure, but none of them are on sale. So that means I have to wait. I want to start learning codec, converting, video editing now so I can start burning dvds that plays on dvd players. But I have no clue where to start, I can just start in videohelp, but most of the knowledge and work is already completed by the cool guys/gals. I want to start somewhere where they tell you what this and that do. Haha, I sound so weird, but I really want to learn those stuff, seem so interesting.

I once burned a load of anime episodes to dvd, to watch on a normal dvd player for a friend at work... from the actual divx avi thingys to mastered on dvd took almost 36 pure processing time, converting to CBR, merging episodes to one big file, converting to mpeg2, authoring dvd with menu and chapters (for episodes), and burning O_o that was when i had a pc... not sure how anymore to do it on my mac :lol

Can you do stuff like that on a Mac? My last experience with macs was in 1999.

I still want to learn how to do those things from scratch. Wonder if there is any tutorials that tells you what this and that do, what this and that means. Haha.

Maybe after that, I probably want to try a Graphic Designer field on campus.

I wanna know how to do it on a mac!! but not on this ibook i use now, am currently redecorating bedroom... no room for imac so laptoops only for a month or two :cry:

i learnt by trying things and seeing if they work better, if not try another way. one program you will need is tmpegenc (which did the converting and merging for me) i think it called, and a dvd maker which does the menus/chapters!

but yup, there is definitely tutorials out there! might even be on daddicts but im to lazy to look :lol

My burner had died a while back so my hard drive has been filling up.

A new burner just came in today so I will once again burn stuff on DVD-R and delete stuff on the hard drive.

I always burn the ones I like onto CD's. So first I have to watch like first 3 episodes to see if I like it, then start burning all of the episodes if I identify it as worth it. Like I've watched more than what I have on CD's. The ones I dont like tend to be deleted right off the time when I find it boring or worthless. Hmm didnt even finish snow white because the acting got pretty bad at the end. And Love letter K-drama is tooo slow. If I watch something again, it should be something that I would like to recommend to others. SLLOOWW and dragging dramas gets on my nerves. I'm being more picky now cuz downloading really takes up too much time and burning too.

Oh, sometimes I also download the raws first and transferring them to my xternal hd until the subs are done and start burning them.

well i never realized that i would watch so many so at first i would just keep them on my spacious HD, but now i just burn them after watching/seeding them to make space for more!

plus i figure i pay enough for the bandwidth in getting them that i might as well pay the quarter it takes to burn on a dvd.

I back up everything onto DVD. Seems a waste to delete after spending so much time downloading. :D

I like to keep them just in case i want to watch it again. I haven't really deleted any of them off of my computer yet...i should start burning them onto a disk. I am running out of hard drive space -_-

I never delete anything. Everything initially goes to one of my harddrives, and when they're full I'll move them to DVD. Up to about 800gb of drama. >< My important files I'll keep a Harddrive copy and a DVD copy to be on the safe side.

well, i dont want to create another topic
so illjust contineue this old one i made a while ago

some you guys say that you guys burn them to keep it if you like it
what if the file you burn is corrupted but you are able to play it on your computer
but when you burn it, it would not burn because the file is corrupted (there is a messy frame)
how do you guys preserve your favorite episode if you could not burn it?

Well 600 gig of hard drive space but currently 10gig free..lol..But usually once a series is complete I burn it off to dvd-r right away (looks over at his 482 dvdr in spindles in the corner which only have dorama's on it)..Recently I get myself a dual burner so, just waitin for the price of dual discs spindles to go down..

and also in regards to keeping my disc safe..I have put them in spindles with covering on them, so no dust get's on them and have a whole glass cabinet full sealed.Plus since I am the basement, the room temperature is almost 0--5 degrees always throught the year (don't ask why..i sleep with dual quilts all year around), the disc are at a nice cool temp..Plus even if i have scratches on the disc, my dvdrw is able to read it no prob.Even few yr old ones..

Well, let me see. I would just store those series in the hard drive. Once it's full, I'd just add more to the 2nd hard drive. Nowadays, they're cheap. Check out this deal just recently. Seagate 200GB IDE/ATA Retail Hard Drive $40 After $40 MIR 8)

*doesn't have a DVD burner*

Well, I guess I'll struggle along with my CDRs for now.

Question to the DVD burners... at 8x speed, doesn't it take around 70 minutes to burn a whole thing? I know that at 4x, it takes 20 minutes to burn a whole CDRW, and a DVD is around 7 times the capacity of a CD. You must be patient people.

Lone_Prodigy:
8x takes about 8-10 minutes, if i recall correctly, to burn a whole 4.7 GB disc. It differs slightly from burner to burner. 16x usually takes between 6 and 7 minutes. Should take less time, but hey, 6 minutes is not that long a time to wait :)

1x CD = 150 KB/s
1xDVD= 1350 KB/s

I'm not sure where you live, but if you live in the US, a great 16x burner can be had for under 40 dollars!

Compress and archive it in .rar in a external HDD. I only made Cover designs and casings for drama's which are really good and then burn it using a few DvD-rs.

sometimes i create a multi session dvd.. so dont have to keep the file in a HDD just burn first, anything elsejust add later
