    Im trying to copy goodfellas onto dvd-r but im having a few problems. Firstly,goodfellas is a double sided dvd which means half way through the film I have to get up and turn it over. I have put the film on my hard drive using dvd decrypter (I put all the vob,ifo,bup files in the same folder). When I try to use squeeze the film to 4.7gb dvd2one only lets me select 1 title. Could someone please tell me what Im doing wrong or even if this is possible.
    Thanks

    I read all the guides and did all the searches. I tried everything to get it done and it was just beyond the scope of my abilities. I left the disc alone and will wait for an easier way.

    It is a time consuming and difficult process, for me anyway.

    DVD2One v1.1.1 FULL-DISK mode

    That might do it...

    ...or you might have to run files through IfoEdit to GET VTS SECTORS.

    HERBSMAN: How will v 1.1.1 change anything? You still have to rip both sides of the movie to a single folder. There are multiple VOB and IFO files. How will the new version combine these into a single disc?

    I do not think this will work. You need to make changes to certain files within the folders. Like I said, I spent about 8 hours trying different combinations of rippers, and burners and IFOEDIT and couldn't figure it out.

    If someone haas an idiot's guide to doing this, preferably without IFOEDIT which is still chinese to me, then please do post it, there are alot of people interested.

    I have given up hope now. I used the guide (link at bottom) to try to join the vob files. All went well and I had 8vob files(4 of which I had to rename) and I used the IFOEDIT tool. I now had all the files in 1 folder and everything seemed to be going well. When I started to use DVD2one (version 1) the thing crashed after only 1%. It does seem a bit tricky to achieve this.

    By DVD2one (version 1) if you are talking about 1.0 I would say use at least 1.02. I have used that guide you mentioned using for test purposes to put 3 bob the builder dvd on 1 dvd+r and to put Pearl Harbor both disks on 1 dvd+r and it does work. Like I said if version 1 you mentioned is 1.0 it was flaky on its on. Probably reason you got the crash.

    Interesting question. I also have Goodfellas and it is a two sided DVD. Currently there are no one disc/one button solutions for this, so I mailed the developers of both DVD2ONE and DVD95COPY to ask them what they thought.

    DVD2ONE are not actively pursuing this, as the believe that there are not many two sided DVDs around.

    DVD95COPY are pursuing this for the reason, presumably that DVD2ONE are not pursuing it. If you see what I mean ;)

    In other words, expect DVD95COPY to have this feature on future releases.

    Paul.

    I'd have to agree with DVD2One on that subject matter.
    I've only ever come across one double sided DVD here in the UK & that DVD came from a PRIVATE SHOP (nudge-nudge,wink-wink).
    The 2nd side just had a stupid photo gallery & some crappy extras.

    My two pennies worth

    Sorry to contradict Herbsman (no doubt a nick to suggest that you enjoy the occasional 'herbal' cigarette?) but there are plenty of them out there. The crime was committed by Warner Bros mainly, who also mainly use those crappy cardboard covers. Anyone who started their collection a few years ago will have some of these. Granted, if you are under 18 (hope you haven't been rumbled, Herbie!) then you are unlikely to have seen them, but I assure you they exist.

    There was, in fact, a big press thing about this a few years ago, they even agreed to replace some of them with new dual layered (NEW!?!?) DVDs, but I am not sure how it went.

    Just for the record, my collection has 4.

    Paul.

    PS : I was a little disappointed at the slightly cynical view that this function would not be needed, as backup software would have a better legal argument if it offered these features, IMHO.

    Seriously, there are plenty of those DVDs around.

    I would like some clarification as to your nick. Is it something to do with Camberwell carrots?

    Paul.

    Actually herbie I kinda wish you where my neighbor it is kinda tight here.

    As Far as the age it has nothing to do with it as In a (how was it you said) in half a decade I will be old enough to be your dad then or now but still love a splif on occasion. As can probably be seen by some of my rambling posts.

    Nice long winded thread about nothing between Mods and senior mods. How about using PM?

    Some of us would actually like a simple answer on how to squeeze this disc onto a single side. Do any of you think you can find the time from your busy chatter to post a simple reply?

    another way, make it into a vcd, join the video mpg files together then convert back into a dvd, wont have extras and a drop in quality and alot of time and patience.
