I am copying, legally, DVD's which are dual layer DVD9s.  I purchased the double layer DVD-R double layer, which are much more expensive than regular DVD.  I understand there is a way for me to use the regular DVD-R to copy these.  I was given instructions at the Tech Support but must have missed a step and after waiting on the phone for 2 sessions at nearly half an hour each and being disconnected both times,  I am not very happy.  Can someone help.  This is my first experience at this forum, so forgive me if I am doing something wrong.  Thanks. G

First of all what version of Roxio/Sonic do you have?
What are the steps you were given by Tech Support? You cannot "copy" a DL DVD to standard DVDs without compressing the video.
Since the video on a DL will not fit on a standard 4.7GB DVD, the video has to be compressed for it to fit on a single DVD. On the other hand you could also split the DL video into two and burn each segment on to a DVD without losing much quality.

Perhaps if you were to explain exactly what you want to do?

I was told before I purchased the Creator 2009 with that software I could copy the DVD9s on to regular DVDs.  When I could not make the 2009 work, I purchased DVD-r double layer and they worked but are so much more expensive.  

At Tech support originally I was told to go to "Installation", then Video Copy & Convert, to DVD copy and then to change the setting at the bottom.  I finally figured out that much.  Then I tried each one of the settings and none worked.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.


Edited to get the response out of the quote.

You could try copying the contents, of the DVD9, to a folder on your hard drive, then use Video Copy and Convert to burn them to a standard 4.7GB DVD.

BTW, what is your definition of legally copying?  If it is a commercial movie DVD, it is not legal to make even 1 copy of it.

My definition of "legally copying" is the statement, "Original purchaser may copy this DVD in its entirety and give (not sell) it to up to 100 people......"

Good, then try what I suggested in my last post.  Hopefully, it will work.

Yes, I think it will be best to go with Bruce's suggestion and copy the DVD9 to your hard drive, split it and then burn to the 2 DVDR's.
You may be able to span it across 2 disks using the Video Copy & Convert feature, which is what Support was probably trying to get you doing, but I think you'll have better luck doing it this other way.
