DVD9 to two DVD5 discs


Hi All,

I have exhausted my search all over the internet for a possible open source software that would allow me to make an exact backup of a DVD9 disc to two DVD5 discs. I have managed to use dvdbackup so far to do the decryption/copy onto the hard disk drive. It is the second stage of splitting the copied files to two discs with the menus and extras intact that I am trying to achieve, i.e. similar to DVDFab for Windows.

Hope there is a solution for this.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Daniel

Thanks doralsoral, though xdvdshrink’s overview suggests the following; quote:

"It does NOT do a complete copy of a DVD but only of the main title, ONE audio track and ONE subtitle track."

Looks like there isn’t a straightforward way to achieve this just yet. Might look into dvdauthor as a possibility.

Thanks again.

Best Regards,

Daniel
