    Is it possible to add more footage to an existing dvd burned on a rw disc.
    If so how?

    No. (Eerrr...I don't think so!)

    This is how I would do it...[bold]note that this requires remaking the menu[/bold]...so it may not be to your liking.

    Which do you want to do?
    - add another menu item?
    - or attach footage onto the end of another bit of footage?

    You can do either with DVD Lab (30day trial download available).

    You will need to remake the disc either way.
    1) Get the new footage into a VOB file on your harddrive. (I'll assume you know how to do this as you already have somthing burned.)
    2) RIP the contents of your DVD onto your drive (DVD Decrypter or DVD Shrink) in file mode.
    3) Open DVD Lab and import all the VOB files.
    You can 'glue' VOB files together to be treated as one file when you import them. You could do this if you were 'attaching footage'.
    4) If you want a new menu option for your extra footage, then just create a menu for each of your VOB files (see help files with program).

    Adder.

    Thanks for reply Adder01 , I somehow thought it would not be a simply task.
    It is another piece of footage that I would like to attach to the end of an existing film.
    I hoped there would be a way of doing it, or a programm available to let me do it, with out having to re-make the disc.

    Have you seen DvdReMake Pro? What you describe seems like an easy task:
    - rip disk to HD;
    - import into DvdReMake Pro;
    - find TitleSet/PGC with the movie and select it;
    - right click in the table with PGC programs/cells and select "add program";
    - right click on added cell and select "replace...";
    - load the material you want to add (vob file - if it is as a vob or corresponding ifo file if it as authored as dvd);
    - if you need to add more then one cell/program do it again;
    - export

    Done. This way you will keep all original things (menus/navigation/extras) and add material to the movie. You will not have access to added programs via menus (unless you canhe them as well) but PREV/NEXT buttons on remote will work just fine.
