Sorry if this has been ask about before(i've looked on here but couldn't find the answer).

I'm trying to Burn Audio(24 Bit) ONLY DVD without the gaps between each song.

I can burn the Audio onto the DVD and it does play, but it has GAPS between EVERY song. (I want to be able to Burn concerts onto DVD).

I'm on windows 7 using ImgBurn. I have no problems Burning Video DVD.

I'm pretty LOW-TECH, so i'd appreciate any HELP.

Thanks a lot for that link, but when i DL it, my Webroot security box pops-up saying that it's Malware.

Is there a way i can Burn using ImgBurn where there are NO gaps? (I'm familiar with ImgBurn).


Again, Thanks for that link.

In the dialogue for creating the disc, are you making sure that it's set at either DAO or SAO (cann't remember which imgburn uses)?

I think the op wants to burn an audio DVD (standard DVD containing only audio), as opposed to burning a DVD-A.

I told you i'm low-tech>LOL>because i don't know what, or where, DAO or SAO is.

Ah man, i apologize, but i didn't know there is a difference.

This is what i did:I burned the 24 bit Audio only onto a DVD-R(is that a standard DVD?). Is that why i have gaps?

I've heard about DVD-A, but not sure what that is. Should i be trying that?

I appreciate the help for my LOW-TECH ass>LOL!

DVD-R is fine, you will not find any DVD-A blanks that just indicates the format you burn is DVD-A(udio)

DAO = Disc At once
SAO = Session At Once

These are burning options in the burning program

DVD-A requires a specialised. DVD-Audio player. I guess that you,re just trying to burn a DVD to play on a standard player. I'll download Imgburn ontto my windows laptop over the weekend and see if I can figure out where you're going wrong. Btw, I doubt that lplex is malware and think that webroot has given a false +ve (it happens)but for your peace of mind, I can understand you not using it.

Are you actually making a DVD (with VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS) folders or does the disc contain flac or wav files?

I have the files in FLAC & WAV.

So you're burning a data disc with the flacs or wavs on them, and the DVD player is doing the decoding?

Hmm....

What make and model is your player?

I don't know if the DVD player is doing the decoding or not, because i'm low-tech and i don't know. (SORRY)

I have a Panasonic (Blue-Ray).

My guess is the Panasonic does NOT play DVD-A. My year old Sony doesn't either. It seems DVD-A is almost like BEta now days. Looking at the latest players on the Panasonic site the top of the line DMP-BDT360 doesn't play DVD-A.

My player does play the disc but i can't get it to play seamless.

I just googled and found this http://www.jensign.com/dvdaudio/

to my understanding, you need to convert your wav files into .AOB format (like .VOB files for video dvds) and put all that stuff in the "audio_ts" folder.

I also found this post http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=24506 where the torrent is dvd audio w/ a picture slide show or something, if you look at the checksums you will see folder/file structure

Thanks for the links. But, it doesn't tell me how to burn WITHOUT the gaps between every song. Unless i missed it?

AOB is only for DVD-A compatible players, which is not (apparently) the case with cutz's Panasonic blu-ray machine.

I would suggest trying to burn the disc as you have before, but make sure you use the UDF file system when burning the discs using imgburn. Other than this, I don't know what else to suggest to try and make them play gaplessly (just burning wavs or flacs to disc).

Lplex will easily covert the files to make a lossless (LPCM), gapless audio DVD, but you've ruled that out as your Webroot (falsely) suggests that it is malware. I don't know if there are any other freeware programs to achieve the same result, but there are various options if you're willing to pay. Google will help you with suggestions, if that is the route you want to go.

I don't know if my player can play DVD-A or not(that's where the low-tech comes in).

I'll give UDF a try(I actually know what that is>LOL).

OK>I've DL Iplex and it goes in a zip folder. What needs to be done now?( I can by-pass the Webroot block). I've extract to desktop, but i don't know what to do now?

THANKS for the HELP.

Nope, setting at UDF did not work either. Sill gaps.

To use lplex, follow instructions at

http://audioplex.sourceforge.net

You'll have created a DVD image (iso file) that you can burn to disc using imgburn, or other software of your choice.

HEY!!>I actually was able to do it. Pretty easy, even for a simpleton like me.

THANKS for the HELP. I APPRECIATE it.

MAYBE i spoke to soon?

OK>What can be done when you can't fit a concert on ONE DVD?

When i tried to put the file(concert) into Iplex, Iplex tells me it's too big to fit on a DVD+R. Is there anyway i can i get Iplex to do the whole file at one time and then i could burn to a Dual Layer or BD?

This is what a did try though: I split the files in half into Iplex, but the 2nd-half over-rode the first half. I have no idea what happen to the first-half. What happen was when i burn to DVD+R the 2nd-half burned and not the first-half.

I was thinking if i did split them up i could put both into ImgBurn then burn to a DL or a BD disc.

AM i making ANY sense?>LOL!

Split it into 2 folders and burn 2 discs?

Beyond that - lplex has a forum - maybe somebody there could help you with this. I must admit, it's years since I burned an audio DVD.

Yea, i was thinking about 2 folders, but i don't know how, or IF, it can be split into 2 folders. I would think if that could be done i should be able to burn to a DL or a BD.

I'll see if can get some help on the Iplex forum.

Thanks for the advice.
