    I bought some double layered DVD's so I could copy larger than 4.7GB onto them but when i try to copy a larger movie onto them, it says disk to small to fit the larger files

    how can I get nero to copy a 8gb movie onto a 4.7 double layered dvd?

    First thing is first its not a double layer "4.7" DVD. It is simply a Dual Layer DVD which equates to around 8.5GB of disk space. You can copy an intire disk if it is below 8.5BG in size using DVD Decrypter. First read the original in ISO read and then simply put in your blank Dual Layer disk and use the ISO Write function, and Presto! you have a complete DVD backup. You could also use the nero copy disk function, but you will still need AnyDVD running in the back ground to bypass the encryption.

    hi

    as BBmayo says...

    ========DVD-9 -> DVD+R DL, Double layer to Double layer! (1:1)==========

    Remove all discs from drives.

    Open DVD Decrypter.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Read'.

    Put DVD-9 disc in drive.

    Take note of the 'Destination' file name.

    Click the big 'Decrypt' button.

    Take the DVD-9 disc out of the drive.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Write'.

    Put a blank double layer disc in your DVD Writer.

    Click the little folder icon - 'Browse for source file' - and select the MDS file created for you as part of the steps above.

    Click the big 'Write' button.

    Finished!

    USE THE .MDS FILE IT CONTAINS THE LAYER BREAK INFO FOR BURNING!

    Note: If your drive supports booktype / bit setting, remember to tell it to burn DVD+R DL discs as DVDROM. This will make them more compatible with players. The booktype / bit setting utility is accessed by clicking on the little 'book' icon when in ISO Write mode.

    What do you mean by "USE" the .MDS file?
