    Sure...You can get more than that if you wanted to but it takes a Lot more work that Useing a One Button DVD Backup Program...You would have to use one of the Other DVD Standards if the 2 Movies were more than 3 hours and at 3 Hours the quality would be noticeably lower so you would get better Quality useing the Half D1 DVD standard....So if you wanted to put 2 120Minute movies on a DVD-R then In a Nutshell you would Have to rip the DVDs to your Hard drive and then Demux the audio track you want to keep then Re-encode the Video in the Vob files to Mpeg2 at 352+480/576-Pal and a Video Bitrate of about 2175kbs and then Take the Encoded Mpeg2 Video Files and the demuxed AC3 audio File and Load them into a DVD authoring Program Like "DVD-Lab" or "Tmpgenc DVD Author" and add your menu"s and Chapters and Burn them to DVD...The Quality of the encoder you use will determine the Final Quality of the DVD..This is a Lot more work but if you want to get 4+ hours on a DVD this is what you need to do..I do this with every movie cuz I can get Pretty Good Quality useing CCE putting 2 or more DVD"s on each DVD-R....Cheers

    I have gotten 2 Movies on a DVD-R with Better Quality than DVD2One can do with One Movie ,but then again DVD2One has a Pretty Bad Compression engine...But you are Right it is More Complicated but if you have Made a VCD or SVCD from a DVD then you can do this Just as easy....Cheers
