    You can take out some sound options that aren't needed.....such as french or spanish audio. It depends on the dvd, but dvd shrink is a great tool to fiddle with a dvd. If a dvd is big, something like 6-7 gb, chances are you will have to compress it so much that the video will be pretty bad.

    I have used dvd shrink alot & I usually choose to eliminate all unwanted audio, crop if nessesary & eliminate any menu option. I just want the movie itself, which will give you the best possible video reproduction. Many times if you take out the extra audio & just keep the main movie itself you don't have to compress at all.

    Click on the link above your post to go to the Guides section.
    You will find a list of step-by-step guides on how to use programs such as DVDShrink and DVD2One, both of which are excellent solutions for fitting a dual-layer (DVD9) DVD onto one DVD-R.
    Good luck..

    DVD shrink is free, but if i was you i would extract the movie only and if you want extras put them on another disc. I only realise now how much a difference there is in qulaity between a 30% compression and no % with my new projector screen at 60".

    Thanks for the help so far

    is there any free alternative to dvd x copy as far as splitting a movie onto 2 DVD's?
