There are a number of ways to approach this…the method Dialysis suggested probably is the easiest…provided it works.
I say this because the split modes… together with disc structure issues associated the episodic discs, often create problems.
So, if it works…great.
Personally, I rarely split discs these days, but if I do…I use [B]Customize Mode [/B]and modify the content of the discs manually. It’s a bit more work, but not much and you can usually get exactly what you want.
As an example, you can retain the menu(s) on each disc and place …let’s say episodes 1&2 on disc 1 (menu intact) and episodes 3&4 on disc 2 (menu intact).
The downside here is that you need to remember that navigating via the menu to episodes 3&4 on disc 1 won’t work and likewise with disc 2 for episodes 1&2. Kind of obvious since the respective episodes aren’t on the disc, but if you have to answer to the wife…
well there it is…been there myself……
You might also look at compressing the original files to fit on an SL disc.
Here again, you may run into navgation/menu problems as the result of the compression and disc structure.
Do you have any RW dvd’s…it’ll cut your costs to $0 and lessen your level of frustration?
