    yes it can be done you could either use a double layer burner to burn the complete movie, which includes the extra features and all the sound languages(only down side is that just "1,one,uno,ichi" double layer DVD (8.7GB) is like 10 bucks or you can do the cheap wat and get a single layer DVD (4.7) 50pk spindal which is like 25 bucks and use something like DVD shrink to just burn the movie and that is all. no special features, no extras no dubbed sound just the movie.

    Yes just make sure when your using shrink and you go to the final step after hitting back up click on DVD Region tab and make sure region free is checked this way you can play the DVD anywhere.. The only thing I'm no totally sure of is I know Germany runs on PAL and us NTSC. Does anyone else know if this makes a difference? I don't belive it does but just want to make sure...

    Hmmmm Why did this double post??
