you can do it using shrink (no compression) but you will loose the menus. the chapters however will all be there. simply open the files with shrink. then click on reauthor. pick the main movie file. then open the second one and add just the main movie. you then have both on one dvd. click backup and there you go. like I said you loose the menu so this should be for your personal use and not traded.

There are tutorials on how to do this at videohelp.com
The easiest way is using TMPGEnc DVD Author but that costs $$.
There are ways to do it using freeware utils also.

I was going to combine these discs also, but combined they are slightly too large to put on a dvd-5 w/no compression. If you still want to squeeze them on one disc, you can use dvd shrink, or 'combine multiple dvd titles' option in nero. after that, you'll have a new dvd w/both shows. to add menus try TMPGEnc trial version

Could you tell me where the 'combine multiple dvd titles' option is in Nero? I'm new to the program. Thanks KFM

If you're using Nero 6 w/ Smart Start, it's right here....just open smart start and move your cursor 5 icons down the row and this will show.
