I always split. I donâ€™t like the idea of compression, esp since most of the DL movies are 7+ GB. Thatâ€™s too much squeezing for me.
Concur on SL vs DL disks. I just picked up some 50 spindle Sony SLs at Staples for $15.00. What do you get, 4 or 5 Dls for that price? I can get up once an hour to switch disks.
Fortunately I have not run across too many movies that have previews on them. With 30 cent blanks you might experiment with deleting the previews. No guarantee, but I have been successful with going to the DVDFab_temp file before burning the disks, opening the Video_TS folder and double clicking on the VOB files. Your video player program should start up. When you find the â€˜previewâ€™ VOB, delete it, then burn the disk(s). Itâ€™s worked for me. I have also found that for the disks with dual format on one side that usually gets split nicely into disk 1 and disk 2. I then check to see which is the widescreen and then just burn it.
Still would like to get the disk restarting problem solved though.
