    What format is the movie in? NeroVision can do this for AVI/MPEG files, and Nero Recode can do it for ISO/VOB files.

    The 120 minute limit is just for people with TV DVD Recorders. The 2 hour limit is from using SP (short play) mode when recording off the TV.

    How long a film is that fits, depends on the bitrate. You should have no problem fitting up to four hours of DVD footage (with worse quality than the original)

    It sounds like you are using Shrink/Nero Recode. If it doesn't quite fit. You can shrink twice.

    I guess I won't worry about it then. I still want to have good quality backups.

    Should be mo more than 2 1/2 hrs.

    I have Batman Begins (2h20 long, 66% shrink) & Kingdom of Heaven (2h24 long, 69% shrink). Both are still clear, of course only the movie with 1 audio track and subtitles.

    The amount of time on a DVD is affected by different factors.

    The smaller the TV/display, the more can be crammed on the disc without seeing artefacts.

    Also, the original average bitrate is important. I have had many DVD's with 50% compression and last 2 and a half hours. The backup still looks good because the bitrate is still high. As long as the bitrate is good, the backup will still look good.
