I would like to back-up the DVD of "Das Boot".
The DVD is a double-sided DVD, with each side
being a single-layer. I would like to burn it onto
a single-layer DVD-R or DVD+R. This usually works
fine on single-sided, dual-layer DVDs by using
DVD-Shrink to compress the original DVD.
Does anyone know how to do this for a double-sided
As already suggested, burning each side to a single layer disc is the easiest and best solution.
You could in theory use DVD Shrink to combine the two sides, but then you lose the menus and just have each title play after the previous one.
Lastly, you can buy double sided DVD-R media, which is basically a single layer disc on each side.
I never really cared for that media though as I found I had higher error rates than regular single-sided media.
