Does it have to be 2 DVD-rw's ? I'd rip it with acidrip or k9copy, then remaster it with qdvdauthor. I'm not a videophile, and I tend to go with the easier option.

Good luck...

P.S. With just a little poking around, I also found dvd95, which takes a full DVD, and remasters it for you, to fit in a 4.7 gig disk. Even easier than my solution.

thank you for reply, i'm looking for non gui, non Windows app.
Sorry , didn't mentioned that before.

acidrip - it's gui ( right ? ) and it converts to avi and then to DVD again.
What i would rather have is to get a dvd structure and "just" divide it into 2 other DVD structures in such a way that it can be burn to the separate disks.

I think you would have to rip it to 1 .avi, use a video editor to cut the .avi into 2 .avi's, then remaster. I don't think you can just split up a single iso, burn it to 2 dvd-rw's and expect it to play in a dvd player. If you just have some data backed up on there, or one large file, I think you can just split the file up. Of course, ripping to an avi just to split it up sort of defeats the purpose, as the avi will be compressed enough to fit onto a single DVD.

Acidrip and k9copy are both gui programs, with sensible defaults, if you just want to back a movie up. Sounds more like you want to learn how to do something, rather than get something done. Getting something done, I can help with. This particular lesson you have set yourself, not so much. Good luck though....

It can be done, but I do not know if anybody has it set up to do without a gui. Basically you just remove a couple of the VOBs (to get down to 4.4gig) and burn. Then you add the VOBs you had to remove and remove the ones you burned on the first disk.
