2 x 1.4GB Movies To 1 DVD Disc

  DavidM4 13:04 21 Jan 2006

I have 2 1.4 GB movies on my PC and I want to put them both onto 1 DVD using Nero 7, if I can. If Nero won't do it what will?

They are in separate folders both containing AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders.

Thanks for any suggestions. Dave M

Try Nero - it might drop the resolution to fit the films on.

They should both fit on a 4.7GB disc easily but I don't know the process with Nero 7, do I make a Data disc, movie disc or what?

Movie disk.

"They should both fit on a 4.7GB disc easily"

I have a long and boring thread somewhere. In it i managed to fit two MPEGs onto a DVD Movie Disc. Then when i tried to do 2 more which where smaller - Nero reports they don't fit!!!! Never found out why!!

When I click on "burn DVD video files" the left hand window is an open VIDEO_TS folder do I drag n drop my movie VIDEO_TS folders into that?

I wonder if it's because a 4.7GB DVD is only 120 minutes? Does that make sense?

Not sure - i've only used Nero Vision Express (6).

You could try a program called DVD Shrink, it's freeware so worth a look, I've used it to put bits of those free newspaper DVD's together on one DVD...alB

It's not just the file size that counts it is also the time. Most 4.7gb DVDs that I have made only give me 2 hours 48 minutes. So if your files exceed that time limit you won't get them on one DVD.

I am trying to transfer all my Beta tapes to DVD before my Beta recorder packs up. But as most Beta tapes are 3hours 15 minutes I have to split them up. DVD blanks are so cheap these days so does it really matter whether it is on one DVD or two?
