    I've copied a program on to my DVD hard drive and given the length is around 4 hours, I split the title into 2 files and burnt each one to separate dvds. I'm now tring to add both titles to dvd shrink, but it is only recognising one of them. With the other file, the only thing showing is the title menu.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    A couple of issues here,
    Having a title menu...
    Shrink will not let you preserve functional menus when splitting so you should not have kept them in the first place.

    Splitting with Shrink a quick overview, (based on my guide for making clips: http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/tutorial001.html )...
    Open the original 4 hour file in Shrink.
    Select Reauthor.
    Open the "Set Start/End Frames" feature.(The opposing blue arrows.)
    Select the first half of the title and burn it to a folder on your HDD.
    Do the same thing to the second half.

    You can now close and reopen Shrink, add the first half, select Reauthor and then add the second half.

    Ends up looking like this on the left:

    Title 1
    Title 1(2)

    The process...
    You can only compress so much with Shrink so this is not really a way around this.
    It does not make much sense to me to split a movie and then recombine it. Why split it in the first place?
