I just discovered that the DVD-RW drive in my hand-me-down computer may be capable of burning dual/double layer DVDs. (The drive is a NEC ND-3550A Dual Layer DVDÂ±RW Writer).
Up to now I’ve been backing up my DVDs to single layer DVD-Rs, and that has meant that sometimes I’ve had to split a movie into two parts.
I’ve been using DVDShrink 3.2 to make the back-ups. I seem to recall that I had to link DVDShrink to a burning program. I can’t remember which one . I think it may be IMGBurn 2.5, but I can’t figure out how to tell which program DVDShrink uses to burn its back-ups.
When I back up my movies I only back up the movie itself, leaving out all the menus, extras, warnings, disclaimers and even the lead-in company logos if they are annoying.
So, now that think I have the capability to put those two part movies onto a single disc, I’d like to take a stab at it.
Is the software I’m now using capable of burning dual layer DVDs?
If so I’d appreciate a referral to a “How to” article.
If not, then I’d be grateful for suggestions. I’m a disabled senior on a small fixed-income so I’d prefer free software if its available
