dvd image too large


How does one split up a dvd image that is more than 4.7GB? Is there software that will let me do this?

Not quite sure what you are planning to
do ... If you are trying to get a Video-DVD
onto DVD-Writables give DVD::RIP a look


If you are trying to burn data onto DVD's
... mkisofs/cdrecord should be able to help.


Cheers,
Tink

Sorry, I guess that first post wasn't so specific. I am trying to burn a dvd from another dvd. I can get the files with vobcopy -m. I can make the image with mkisofs -dvd-video. I could burn it with cdrecord-prodvd IF the image were <= 4.7GB. I know it is possible to split this across 2 or more dvds, but how can I accomplish this?

^-- This is what I meant to say. Sorry for the confusion

So...

If you:
dd if=/dev/dvd | cdrecord blah blah -

Then the image is too big for the new DVD? How about just the iso:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/iso/dvd.iso

How big does it get?



Cool

In this particular case it's 7.9GB [the dvd image].

Wow! Ok, here's a few ideas:
http://www.nongnu.org/dvdrtools/ There are some lists to mailing lists that you might check out. Also, avidemux has the ability to create DVD compliant mpeg video, so you may also check that out as an option to split the video with.

I think there are probably loads of other options along those lines, as for a real easy way, I really don't know; however maybe it's addressed on those mail-lists. Good Luck, and if you find anything out (since it doesn't seem to be all that common obviously from the overwhelming (sarcastic) response ) please post back and let us know.

Cool
