    I have 2 DVDs and would like to combine them onto one. The two DVDs have similarly named files (VIDEO_TS.VOB, VIDEO_TS.IFO, VIDEO_TS.VOB, VTS_01_0.VOB, etc etc) but different content and as a result, I am having a problem burning them on to one DVD. One has about 45 min, the other about 40 min of Video. I tried re-naming one of the DVD's files, but received error remarks from NERO.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I have NERO, DVDShrink, DVDDecryptor for use.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dan,

    You won't be able to rename the files and join them that way. The IFO file contains all the information about how the DVD is built and which VOB it plays next. You could try IfoEdit if you wanted to. It lets you edit the IFO file.
    Or for something with more GUI...try downloading DVDLab. It lets you join VOB files. You can also create menus, etc.

    Adder.

    I d/l TMPGEnc DVD Author, the 'trial' version. I used that software to combine the two. seems the menues on each DVD took up significant space, so I "DVDShink"d, edited out the menu (really didnt need/want them) and burnt successfully to disc...

    Hi Dan, I'm just curious as to why you didn't use Shrink to join them. Wouldn't that of worked for you?

    Dan,

    Try DvdReMake Pro, It's the best authoring tool out there.

    I just joined a flipper disc(A Time To Kill), with 2 seperate menus onto one disc using only one menu I created with remake from the originals to go to all scene selections, bonus features, etc from both sides.

    After running the finished files thru RB/CCE, the end result is perfect with no noticeable loss on quality.

    I don't know of another app out there I could have done this with and keep the original functional menu.

    DRM is the best! :>)
