    I have two DVD files (the "_TS" format), both of which are a little less than 2.2 Gbyte.

    I would like to burn both files onto a DVD5, but cannot figure out how to do it.

    DVD shrink "replaces" the first DVD with the second when I "add" it, and Nero Express refuses to allow the addition of the second to the first.

    I though about manually renaming the files so they are all different (figured this was the problem) but didn't want to risk making a coaster. Thought I would come here and ask an expert instead.

    What's the best/fastest/easiest way to do this ?


    Thanks in advance,


    Billy

    Thanks for the link, IHoe. I've been using DVDShrink for years and never noticed the DVD "Browser Button". (Duh...)

    I've dumped the DVD to file because I want chapters and it doesn't look like DVDShrink does chapters. After the thing gets done encoding, I'm going to see if I can get VSO to do some chapters.

    Is there a better way ?

    Thanks again,


    Billy

    well if you want chapters then why don't you do VSO's ConvertXtoDVD! Add both dvds and let it go and it will put menus and chapters!!! as we speak I am doing a DVD by ConvertXtoDVD! and it's fast too!

    Yeah, after I posted this I had the same idea. (Duh...) I had to re-process both files from avi to _TS again, but this time I did them together, with the autochaptering enabled.

    Heh. "autochaptering". lol...

    If this should happen again, is there a prog that will create chapters during re-authoring ? I'm thinking about a case where the file starts off as a _TS file.
