I'm sure this has been discussed sometime, for that I apologize because I can't find any thread.

I am using idvd 6.0.2. Is there any way to make a dvd, even without menus, over 2 hours? If not, can someone suggest a program where I can? preferbly one that is easy to use for a dummy like me? Thanks.

I believe that if you go over the hour mark, you will need to use double layer DVDs (DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL). Which hold about 8.5GB.

Due to cost I tend to cut my movie down to less than two hours or use two DVDs.

I believe you can, but I have not tried it.
