MKV one movie on 2 discs

Trying to clean out my 400 disc changer and finish backing up all my movies. Came across the movie Pearl Harbor. On DVD this came on 2 discs. Is there a way to back this up as one file so it plays uninterrupted???

Current owner of the last/best AmPro on the planet. The mighty 4600HD, and it's still running...better than Barco's, especially southern ones.

Yes there is. You can do it with mkvtoolnix. I think these are the directions I used a while back: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4915

Specific to Pearl Harbor, if it is a film you actually think you'll watch or demo from again, I'd spend the $5 or so to grab a used BluRay before you rip. It's upscaled from the same original (excellent) transfer as the DVD, but still, a marked improvement in resolution and color depth. The audio transfer is an uncompressed PCM 5.1 track that is truly reference quality with extremely active surround and LFE. If you need to save file size when ripping, the DD5.1 track is the same as the DVD and still excellent... just keep the disc around for demo use.

Regardless of what you think of the film (I like it, FWIW), it really is great demo material and for that reason, it's one of the few discs I kept around when I purged my 1000+ DVD/BR collection years back. One drawback is only the theatrical cut is available on BluRay.
