I was wondering if it was possible to burn multiple DVD's onto a single DVD without re-encoding.

To clarify: I have many children's DVDs that are quite short (~45 minutes each). Is there a way I can simply rip 3 or 4 DVDs to my HD, and then burn them onto a single DVD? Can this be done directly through Nero? What about DVD Lab? Or would I need to re-encode the whole thing?

Thanks!
Icarus

The short way is to use DVDShrink in "Reauthor" mode.

Drawback :
- quality of the image of course but as you don't want to reencode, you probably already supposed that.
- you loose the menu (no solution to keep the menu exists).
- you have to use the "title" select mode of you SAP to go directly to the next DVD. With some players, this is not convenient.

Actually, DVDremake pro can do all this, keeping the original menu's! Only it doesn't reencode or transcode anything. A option is to rip to HDD, then shrink each dvd until the total of all the dvd's is 4,35 GB, and then use dvdremake pro to burn them.

I didn't know about DVDRemake. Don't you think the reverse situation is easier : First ripp, then remake, then shrink the final DVD ?
