I have read alot on the forum about splitting a DVD with DVD Shrink, but I believe there is a better way. I use CloneDVD 2 because it will retain the menu's and special features where DVD Shrink's "Recode" won't. It's really very simple to do if you follow the instructions carefully. You can get a perfect uncompressed copy of a long movie including the special features. And best of all all the menues are preserved.
