    Lord of the Rings is one disc ... at least the movie. You want to combine the special features and the main movie to one disc? That would be alot of compression, and the picture wouldn't be that great ... after all Lord of the Rings (movie disc) is pretty big to start.

    If you wanted to ... you could use Shrink in re-author mode. or DVD2One

    Thnxs for the help flip. There's two versions of lord of the rings though. I have the extended edition which is four discs and the movie (just the movie) is on 2 discs.

    RB/CCE is about the best encoder for high compression with DVD5 recordable media. There's still a limit to how far you want to go. What is the file size for both segments of the movie (not the titles and extras)? If you try to do all the extras and the movie onto one disc, you'd have to redo the menus and there you'd need something like DVD Lab Pro or DVDRemake (not a process for beginners). The original movies ran near 7GB each. You'd be better off using Shrink and encoding to dual layer if you have a dual layer burner.

    Compressing a dual layer movie to a single layer disc is bad enough, trying to fit 2 DVD 9 discs on a single layer disc is a waste. I wonder if the sound alone would take up most of the memory on the DVD r.

    No, sound wouldn't be the biggest. Just figure the space for one movie and double it and no where close. If you look at the movie breakdown in an app like DVD Shrink, you'll be able to see the sound tracks separately. Foreign sound and subtitles would be one area where the recording could be edited. I'm curious about the contents of the discs. Even with different endings and a director's cut, I've not seen any movies over 8 to 9 GB.
