Been tryin to burn single play dvd's from files specified for such but can't seem to get it to fit on one. The file is set up for 2 single play dvd's but when I go to convert and burn it always ends up wanting to create 2 or 3 saying the files are too large for one. any thoughts?

I think you're talking about Roger Waters DVD. As you can see there are 2 folders there. You need to burn them separately. You'll need 2 DVDs.

I am, and I have the folders separate. I try to burn disc one files but when it sets up for conversion (using AVS converter) it says the files are too large for single play and wants to split them into two discs. I have dual layer but seems a waste to use those

Could be the software, seems to do this with most of the dvds, what should fit on one keeps splitting into 2 or 3. Can't get the menus to work either.... any ideas on better software?

Just burn each disc as data, using NERO, or Ones, etc.

no need for any conversions just burn each dvd folder's files to disc (assuming the 6 gb is for both folders)

just doing a data burn didn't allow me to view it in my dvd player... said file could not be read.

Download ImgBurn and then follow this tutorial on how to burn DVD playable discs.

Doesn't matter what software you use to burn; I'm presuming that the files are VOB - each folder should burn on a single disk.

No need to convert or play with the files.
