a friend of mine let me borrow a couple of dvds and i wanna have a copy of it. problem is there is about 14 of these discs(all the same show) he authored already. i could make an exact copy of it using nero and just drag the files in VIDEO_TS over but its 14 discs only 2 shows each.
my question is, is it possible to put 2 of these discs together and just keep one set of menus in each instead of having each DVD have menus and just cut out the extras. using DVD Shrink the exact size is 3,973MB. a noob question, what if i use shrink to decrease the video quality and menu, is it possible to make my own dvd using the bup,ifo,vob files. so for example ill use shrink to decrease the 2 shows to 80%(more or less),and about 60% for menus, and do this for 2 DISCs, can i drag these files into Nero's DVD-Video's Video_TS folder. but would i be allowed to change the name of the files accordingly?
is this way to complicated? any other ways around this or should i just stick with making an exact copy from the original?
thanks in advance
