Burning Multiple Iso Files

Can I burn more than 1 iso file to a DVD disk? I have 10 of them and would like to burn them 2 per disk. This would give me about 2 hours of video on a disk. Would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks, Jim B.

 

No you cannot burn 2 iso files to a disc. Remember an iso file is an exact image of a complete disc

 

You could extract the video back to your hard drive and then somehow combine the 2 movies into a single iso file.

Also, putting to hours of video on DVD will most likely reduce the quality of the video.

You are not at all clear on what your goal is...

 

Normally an ISO is a disc image and can only be 1 per disc, as Walt indicated...

 

HOWEVER, if you are mounting the ISO's to a virtual drive... :glare:

 

Then you could burn as many that will fit onto a DVD (data disc) and pull them one at a time into the virtual drive.

 

More details always help ;)

You're right I wasn't clear about what I was trying to do that's why I asked the question. I cranked up videowave, opened the episode 1 mpg file and added the episode 2 mpg file at the end of 1. I burnt that to a disk and was satisfied with the results. The videos are of grainy, black and white films taken during the first world war. A little compression doesn't really matter.

OK, great!

 

It can matter... we see this with converting VHS tapes too. If the Quality of the Source is low to start with, reducing the Output Quality to fit a disc only makes it worse :huh:

 

Keep in mind that with digital, you can only hope for equal quality. You cannot make it better but you can easily make it WORSE :lol:

 

Trying to pack too much on a DVD is a false savings! Considering the BEST media (Taiyo Yuden (JVC)) is only 22 to 28¢ each for a 100 pack, you can never justify reduced quality...

 

And consider using Double Sided (8GB) discs ;)

Heard of JVC, not the other two. Haven't even seen them on the shelves around here. I use Verbatim media.

Sorry! 'Taiyo Yuden' is "one word" and they are JVC ;)

 

Verbatim is 1st runner up ;)

 

I haven't actually used any TY's since I have yet to exhaust my my stocks of Verbatim's :lol:

 

One thing to watch for with Verbatim, is to make sure they are made in Sinapore! Even they have farmed out some work lately :(

 

Souns like you are on the right track!
