True. You can save some space if you don't save the special features or alternate audio (French,Spanish)

Re: Huge dvd collection

thats what i was thinking about just ripping straight to ISO, im not trying to figure what to use as storage source. if i calculated correctly i should be able to get 245 dvds in one terabyte so i can almost fit all my movies on 2 terabyte drive if they rip at 4 gigs...
You will more than likely see 7or8 gigs if you to a full iso rip. The only way to get them smaller is to only rip the main movieand audio. But this is time comsuming. Not the way I prefer. I ike having all my menus and special features.

Dont waste your money on the changer. It is a piece of junk.
Reviews say otherwise. Do you have evidence to back this up or is this just your personal opinion stated as fact?

I bought a Ziotek storage carrousel, movie Collectorz software and Eject-Me add on for Media Center.

The Ziotek only holds 150 discs but it saves ripping for the rarely used discs.

I use my iPhone and a Collectorz app to scan the UPC codes to populate the database and when I pull the library up in Media Center I have the option of playing directly or automatically ejecting the disc from the carrousel.

Just one more of many approaches. Keeps all the discs handy.

My System
Re: Huge dvd collection

I've got a couple of old Sony DVD megachangers and I must admit, I've not used either in months. They certainly reduce the spoace ncessary to stor your DVD collection, but , unliks music, I find I don't rewatch movies very often. That being said, I've also got a pair of Sony CD changers, and really only use the around Christmas as I'd rather listen to one disc at a time on my Oppo BDP83SE.
My original thought was that the Mega changers would make great servers for my multi-room system, but I've found that except for some special occasions, I listen to music or watch DVDs in my primary listening area.
