    first use dvd dycrepter to rip the movie into original folder
    if smaller than 4 gig great
    use ifo edit 95 to edit
    make 3 folders 1. VIDEO_TS 2. original 3. new movie
    1. open ifo edit, click open ( open your ifo file in original folder.
    click on vob extras, leav everything the same make sure destination is video_ts folder. click strip or next.
    only check the 6 channel ajudio nothing else.
    click strip. this takes about 30 min. sometime in between this you will get an error just click ok.
    now when you done close ifo edit. adn reopen it. click on open. open the ifo file in video_ts folder. click on get vts sectors and click ok a few times until done. now click on dvd play if all is good movie should play. now use neo dvd standard or nero to burn the video_ts folder to a dvd

    Easy - use DVD XCOPY. It will look at the source disk and tell you if it will fit on one destination disk or if you need 2. Burning onto 2 it simply asks you to insert destination disk 1, burns, then insert the 2nd, burns. I just hate splitting them because you get stuck with a movie you have to switch discs in to watch.

    The Philips DVD (standalone) recorder SAYS it records up to 2 hours in DVD quality, 3 hours in S-video quality, and 4 hours VCR quality - would would mean you could fit a store-bought 2 hour DVD onto a regular 4.7gig disc... I still have no idea how the Philips recorder does this... (anyone reading this thread have any idea? Anyone HAVE a Philips 985R recorder?)
