    Hi there ClipsKid, Welcome to aD,

    DVD XCopy won't do it BUT DVD2One will, it was made for just that purpose.

    (As a matter of fact I finished putting both GoodFellows disc on a single with a "seamless" fit.)

    2 Discs on 1 using DVD2One in the "Join" mode.
    The join mode is a very powerful new feature of DVD2one. It can be used for many things:
    · Joining a movie that has been spread over 2 sides of a disk (aka "flipper") or even over 2 disks.
    · Joining of different episodes of a (TV) series on 1 disk.
    · Adding a music video, documentary or Featurette after the main movie.
    · Adding an intro (for instance THX or Dolby) before the main movie.
    · Or any combination of the above possibilities !
    The join mode is not limited to only 2 titles, but it can join any number of titles on 1 disk. Of course the total size of the titles you want to join has its limits. DVD2one has built-in warning messages to let you know when you go to far.
    The join mode has 2 different modes:
    · Seamless. The separate titles are joined in 1 titleset, and will play continuously without interruption.
    · Non-seamless. Each title is put in its own titleset, and there will be a small delay when the player goes from one to the other title.
    The seamless mode is the perfect mode for joining a movie that has been spread over different sides or disks. DVD2one will examine automatically whether the different titles can be seamless joined together. For this the video, audio and subtitles need to be the same.

    The non-seamless mode will work with any title, and can be used in all other cases. DVD2one provides convenient ways to skip through the different title sets.
    How to use
    The join mode is very simple to use, since it works like a repeated movie-only mode. After selecting the first title you come to a summary screen. Here you can select another title you like to add to the list, or start processing. If you select to join another title, you will advance through the selection screens again. The only difference is when using seamless mode, you do not have to select audio, subtitle and angle. The selection for these items is taken from the title to which the new title is seamlessly joined.
    Advanced Navigation Mode
    This new feature is experimental and may not work correctly with specific DVD players, or may have some unwanted side effects. It is recommended to try it first with a re-writable disk. It adds the following ways to navigate between the different title sets:
    · Right menu button for next titleset.
    · Left menu button for previous titleset.
    · Next chapter at the last chapter of a title goes to the next titleset.
    · Previous chapter at the first chapter of a title goes to the previous titleset.
    The menu button system may interfere with subtitles. Also if a titleset does not have subtitles, a dummy subtitle is added to make this feature to work.

    Thanks Pete, it's kind of funny cause Goodfellas is the exact movie that i'am trying to put on one disc. I do actually have software that will join movie pieces, which then leads me to my next question if you don't mind. Can you store your dvd rip as a permenant file as oppose to a Temp file, which DvdXcopy automatically does for you? If I can do this then I will store both rips, then join them, then burn them. Thanks again Pete!

    ClipsKid,

    I ripped each disc using DVD Decrypter in the Mode, ISO, Read setting. After I've ripped each disc I have DVD Shrink pick it up and compress it to about 4260MB (set up in Edit, Preferences, Target Size). After each is processes with Deep analysis to improve quality and the "Quality Enhancement" set to "Maximum Smoothness" I back it up to my HD in "File" Mode. When both discs are done I pick up one at a time to feed to DVD2One in the Join, Seamless mode to assemble, once that is finished you can then burn to disc using any burning engine (I use CopyToDVD). The end results are truly good. It's extremely close to the original when viewed on a 19" CRT OR a 65" TV.

    Cheers,

    PETE

    Yes you can by going into the advanced section of the program and choose to use no compression.

    jazmynlee,


    May I ask you what ypur post refers too ?

    Why would someone who wants to do 2 movies on a single disc want to run a program with Zero Compression ?

    Pete
