    could someone please tell me what to do if a game you are trying to burn is bigger than 4.7GB?
    can you burn it onto 2 dvds or do you have to compress it so it fits on 1 dvd-r?

    you can do either, you can rip it to 2 disk without taking out movies and stuff like that. the spliting tools are game specific. what game is it. i've found a guide to do metal gear solid Substance

    what software do you use?
    i think lord of the rings:rotk is bigger than 4.7GB.
    but what happens when you get to the end of the first disc? would it be like final fantasy 9 where it says 'put in disc 2 now'?

    lord of the rings rotk is around 4.2gb in size so you should be able to just do a 1:1 backup of it

    With all these dual layered burners coming out, I wonder if they can successfully backup a DVD9 game without ripping a single thing. Can most modchips play these discs?

    you wouldn't need to compress a DVD-5 game it would fit striaght onto a DVD disk.
