Flippers (DVD-10) are almost unknown in Australia and New Zealand (Region 4 PAL where I come from) but are common in North America where Not Twice Same Color is the unfortunate standard; two sided DVDs â€“ yes, Flippers â€“ no. A Flipper is one DVD and has part of the main movie on one side and the rest on the other â€“ what a dumb idea. This is what a dual-layer disc (DVD-9) is for! But then, people go on and complain about the layer break: doh! If youâ€™re lucky, the main movie is on one side, extras on the other.
This guide will use the Open Disk and Open Files methods since you canâ€™t read both sides of the disc in the one DVD reader since weâ€™re putting a double-sided disc onto a single sided recordable, I recommend the main movie, one sound track and subtitles only so that compression is not too harsh on the video stream.
Insert the DVD side-2-up and rip this side to disk with No Compression. These files become the new and alternative source of Side 2 during Re-author.
Flip over the disc, to Side 1, open it using â€œOpen Diskâ€ and click â€œRe-authorâ€on the Toolbar.
Select the Title from Side 1 that you want to start with and drag it to the Re-author window. Do not remove it from the drive!
When youâ€™re done with Side 1 (disc) go to Side 2 (files) by clicking â€œOpen Filesâ€ on the Toolbar and navigate to the VIDEO_TS.IFO file, click and open it. Drag the remaining titles you want to the Re-author window, choose your levels of compression and rip away.
