Hi panicjill and welcome.
If you've read through this thread, then you know that error 2005 is:
"Files are too big to fit on a DVD +/- R(W)"
Keep in mind the following:
Express will always compress, unless the file size is smaller than an SL disc or you have enabled DL burning (make sure DL burning remains unchecked if you want to compress).
Gold will never compress and will always split to two SL discs unless the file size is smaller than a SL disc or you have enabled DL burning.
Are you trying to split this to 2 discs in order to retain complete disc?
First off, recommend you try express - main movie mode and burn to a SL disc. Let us know what happens.
If you continue to have problems, we will need specifics of exactly what you're doing.
Another thought here, when you rip this movie with gold, instead of choosing your burner as the target, choose instead your hard drive...just create a folder and remember where it is...on the desktop and the name of the movie makes it easy. Then post back with file sizes. You should have 2 folders, disc 1 and 2.
