    hey all,

    I have burnt Saw 1 onto a DVD-RW and I want to add Saw 2 (and 3 if it will fit) onto the same disc. I originally used ConvertXtoDVD to convert and burn the first Saw movie to the disc from an AVI file.
    Obviously it took a while to convert Saw 1 the first time around and i don't want to wait three times as long to burn all three again.

    Is it possible to burn Saw 2 + 3 onto the same disc without converting all three again, and also add the extra movies to the original Menu?

    ta in advance

    you could do it if you used dual layer dvd, but if you just want to put on a single layerd dvd you can't put all three on one disk, also you could put them as dvix

    Hi there,

    To follow the DVD Standard, the media has to be CLOSED / FINALISED to be playable in a DVD Player.

    So even if there was space, you could not burn more to the media.

    With ConvertXtoDVD, you would have to reconvert all of them together, you cannot ADD to an already converted project (Not with ConvertXtoDVD).

    If you are a Video GURU, then you could convert 2 & 3 then re-write all the .IFO files and rename your .VOB files from #1 but it's would probably be quicker just to reconvert all 3 and go for lunch :)

    hey cougar_ii,

    thanks for ya reply but i think as you said if its quicker to just reconvert them all then ill just do that, and anyway im not that familiar with changing and messing around with .vob and .ifo files, and really cant be bothered to find out if its easier reconverting
