    You can compress it so that it will fit on a normal DVD5.

    Movie length

    Sounds like you actually asked two questions. If you use the Clone DVD option when making a back-up of a movie, it will make a duplicate of the original, trailers, languages, etc. Most movies generally have more data than can be stored on a single layer disc (DVD5) and are on a double/dual layer disc (DVD9). Clone DVD will compress it to fit a DVD5 disc. The problem comes when the compression is so large that quality is diminished. The bar at the bottom tells you what your quality level would be with your current options. If it drops below 70-80% or so, it is usually a little low. An alternative would be to use the Copy DVD Titles and pick the main movie and language you need. It hopefully will raise the quality level to a preferred level. If not, you may need to use a double or dual layer disc.

    As to your second question, I do not believe you can put multiple movies (separate discs) on one disc with this software. You can with other software. See this thread: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=1353
