    ok nothing went wrong but just a lil po at fox for how they did the dvd the main movie on side A and it has a few extras but the disk size is only 4.2 gigs and side B with the extras is allso only 4.3 gigs so why didnt they just make a side A so i could have backed it all up on one disk
    ......just a little venting at fox.....
    has anyone else seen disks with a side A and B and not be needed like this?

    You must be backing up to a dual-layer disc costing you $6 (when you can just buy a brand new one in the case for $10). By having the movie on one side and the extras on the other, it saved DVD Shrink one extra step. So what commoners like me who use single-layer discs have to spend an extra 30 cents for another disc for the extras, but there's no compression needed. ;)
