I am not really sure what you want to do. Seems like both of the movies add up to something smaller than 4GB (the normal dvd). In this senario what I would suggest is (take a backup first) and then try 'cat movie1.iso >> movie2.iso' and then burn it to a disk (a rewritable disc is prefered).
Hope this helps...

1st i used devede to turn an avi into an iso then burn it so i can play it on a dvd player. the problem is when u make the avi file into a iso, devede tells u about how many GB the iso will b. but devede always over estimates how many GB the final iso will be. so i had 2 avi and after finishing the both add up to 4.1 GB so instead of burning both on separate dvd i want to burn them on a single disc. in each iso has a menu.

Mount the isos, pull the move files into a folder, and re-build the iso with both files in.

I agree with this solution.

DO NOT concatenate 2 avis, because if you are planning to play them on a divx player, it won't work. The file size limit on most of them is about 1 GB. Just mount the isos, move the files to a folder and make a new iso, here's the command if you need it:

Code:
mkisofs -o output.iso -graft-points -rational-rock -full-iso9660-filenames -iso-level 2 /source/directory
