    I recently ran into a few double sided DVDs, i'm using DVD shrink and was wondering if it is possible to copy these files to DVDR and if they would work fine? I ripped the DVD and the files go to one folder and the B side, DVD shrink automatically separates side B into a new folder, making two separate VideoTS, ifo's, and bup's files. I'm thinking I could just copy side B files and drop them in Side A folder and burn that to DVD? Would that work? Would there be any problems with or do I have to delete one of the Video TS files, ifo's and bup's?

    Hi txstang,

    Rip each side, run it through Deep Anaylsis and Quality Enhancement and place it's VIDEO_TS folder on your HD. Then open DVD Shrink and go to re-author and "Browse" until you find each 1/2 folder. Use the Start/Finish in re-author to join them together then burn to disc. It's a beautiful world we live in :)

    Cheers,

    Pete

    OK still a little fuzzy on how to use the start/finish option and that guide was a little fuzzy too. Any good guides out there? Would it work if I just dropped both sides in on re-author or will there be a break between the two?

    You have to have one side already ripped to your hdd.

    txstang,

    http://www.dvdshrink.info/re-author-advanced.php

    OR,

    For 2 Discs on 1 use 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 3 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.

    Cheers,

    Pete
