CloneDVD – Split Disc mode allows users to split a DVD-9 into two DVD-5 discs but still get high quality. DVD-9 (dual-layered DVD) owns a double capacity of a DVD-5 (single-layered DVD). When you choose the Split disc mode, CloneDVD will fit the movie on a DVD-9 onto two DVD-5 discs automatically with a specific border between the two.
CloneDVD copies features and menu selection to first disc only, and split the longest title by chapters onto both discs. For example, if a DVD-9 contains 25 chapters, it might fit the former 14 chapters on disc 1, and latter 11 chapters on disc 2. Please note that a chapter can’t be divided.
