I did a timer recording of 2 hours. I had to be away and wasn't sure how long the thing of interest would last, and only the first hour is.

I thought I can divide this recording after I saw it, but it turns out the options may have not been applicable to that DVD format. I need a
(1) 1hr, actually 57minutes, and even better - that should be divided into three sections,
(2) 30min section,
(3) 30min section.
The last two I even don't need. The first hour is important. And I don't want to mess with the original at this point.

I have ImgBurn on WindowsXP. Does anyone know if it can make a copy and while so doing divide it for me in exact places? Is there any other tool I could use?

Are you trying to split a video file or audio file?

If its audio, check out Audacity.

if its video, check out VirtualDUB and DVDFlick.

It's recorded from TV broadcast to a DVD recorder. I haven't moved it to the computer yet.
So it's both audio and video :)

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm looking at both and haven't yet found a clear answer there. But will continue reading. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

This is what I would use. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/VideoReDo
I believe you have to request a trial key that will remove the trial version restrictions. They have been very responsive in the past even with questions about the trial version.
I use their fancier version these days to edit my HD video.
Other choices here.

Thanks. That gets me started - at least now I know what I'm looking for :)
From your second link, I'll take a look at Chopper. That might work.

Here's the way I do it using free tools from videohelp.

Copy the VIDEO_TS folder, or VOB files from the dvd to pc.

I use PVAstrumento or PGCDemux to merge and demux the .Vob into a m2v video, ac3 audio file.

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/PVAStrumento

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/PGCdemux

I use Mpeg2schnitt to load the m2v, ac3 (PVAstrumento will create an index for Mpeg2schnitt. (ac3 only)
You can change the language from German to English. (Mostly)

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Mpeg2Schnitt

In Mpeg2schnitt you can cut out parts you don't want, merge m2v, ac3, or fix audio video sync.
caveat; you can only make cuts at certain places (I and P frames I think).
But usually it's close enough for me.
Very little or no loss in quality.

Mpeg2schnitt will then create a mpv, & ac3 file that can be muxed, multiplexed for whatever you plan on doing with the video.. I use Avidemux.

I usually burn the video back to DVD, I use DVDAuthorgui, Muxman, or DVDstyler, To turn the mpv, ac3, files to Video_TS folder. I set my chapters, then use IMGburn to burn the folder to DVD. DVDshrink to make it fit a DVD.

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVDAuthorgui

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Muxman

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVDStyler

I do this quite often, I record TV shows, movies, (cartoons for the kids) from Dish Network HD, in high quality.
I cut out the commercials or merge 2 or more DVD's to one dual layer. or, cut out unwanted video from my Sony
Camcorder.

Hope this helps.
