How can you burn a dvd when the movie is too long for the blank one?:confused:

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

If files are too large to fit on a single layer DVD, you can burn them on a dual layer disc, or on a media with larger capacity like a Blu-ray disc.

Alternatively, you can try to compress the original movie enough to fit a single layer DVD :slight_smile:

Can you provide more details? What movie is? What file sizes?

[B]I have a few different movies in my files and trying to put them on either one disc or split unto 2 discs…Can anyone please help me? Trying to burn them in the Windows DVD maker but the movies are over two hours so I am running into a dead end…[/B]:confused:

For instance: Casino, it’s over two hours long, I would like to put it on a DVD from my files. I would rather put it on a single DVD but if that isn’t possible, I would like to know how to split it on to two separate DVD’s. Could you help me or direct me to someone who can? Thank you…:bow:

If these movies are in dvd-video format you can use DVDShrink to compress them to fit a single layer dvd. DVDShrink is free to use and can be found here: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVD_Shrink Use the direct link.

To get slightly better quality results with large movies, you can use a free program called DVDRebuilder. It will take a little longer to process the movie to fit onto a single layer disk than Shrink, but the quality can be quite a bit better on very large movies. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVD_Rebuilder

If you still want to split the movies into two parts, you can do that with DVDShrink in ReAuthor mode. Follow this guide: http://www.dvdshrink.info/splitting-v2-3.php It shows an earlier version of Shrink but still works for the last version that was made.
