easy to use? DVD's will take 2 cd's? Will there be a breaking point in the disk? More details please.

But you can also copy a DVD to your computer's harddrive, and from there to CD-R. > Will there be a breaking point in the disk? Oh, certainly. Careful! If you break a DVD, you'll have golden flakes all over the room. Do you really want to explain your friends how and why you have golden flakes sprinkled all over the your hair?

So, you can fit one whole side of a DVD on a CDR? Do you have the version that allows you to download movie covers? Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

In a way, yes. You wouldn't need the foreign languages, the "Making of", subtitles, menu and such to begin with, only the movie itself, and the English soundtrack. Then, the video quality is sampled down somewhat, a bit less than DVD quality, but still waaaaay better than VHS. Of course, you would need a fairly decent computer, say in the 800 Mhz range and 512 megs of RAM to convert the stuff overnight. Yes, it takes quite some time. Details, hints, more appropriate forum and the software at: [url]http://www.divx-digest.com/[/url]

Can you post up a link for this software or a similiar one that works well? I also have a DVD RAM drive that says removing the dvd media from the cartridge may work in some newer DVD playback drives. Either way I also have a CD-R, and would love to backup some of my movies. I already have a few scratched from lending to friends... They will be borrowing CD-Rs from now on [}:D]

Nero (from [url]http://www.ahead.de[/url]) has something about being able to create video CDs that will play in DVD players. It's an additional-cost plugin. Never used it or seen it, just took a look yesterday because I'd like to get all of my "Simpsons" episodes off VHS tapes and onto the computer.

Oooooh! Now I'm getting it! Woops. I thought the topic meant "Looking for a DVD wizard", when it actually seems to mean "Does anyone have a software called DVD Wizard?" Never frigging mind.
