Hi, thanks for suggesting DVDFab. I have downloaded it and will give it a try.
So far, I have had limited success with Nero Recode. Unfortunately, although I can save the main movie without splitting into two DVD-5's, the audio is poor compared to the original. I had to eliminate one of the audio streams, leaving only the Dolby stream due to space constraints.
I'm going to tryout DVDFab and DVD Shrink (again).
I was hoping I could split the orginal DVD-9 into two DVD-5's with full working menus and extras, and just split the main movie. Has anyone been able to this? I dunno, maybe I'm asking for too much?
