Re: DVD Trading Burning?

Just dont burn the text or md5 sums on the disc, just the video_ts folder and Audio_Ts folder (if there is one)

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

or wait, do I justburn it this way, and then I have to burn another for playing in a standalone?

what about when I get trades from other people? I would receive them as data DVDs, and then how would I get them from that stage to the DVD-Video stage

this is so confusing, and disappointing, I thought I had everything already set up

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

oh wait! I think I've got it!

from what tot said...

I burn one DVD to archive with the md5 and the textfiles and everything that I DL'd

and then I burn one that's watchable on standlone DVD player, without any of the md5 files

right?

but then, what copy do I send to the person in a trade? the one with the mdr file, or the playable one?

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

^^^correct...DVD-Video is for personal viewing, and you trade the "data disc" with the md5, info text, artwork etc...if someone wants to trade, just pull out the data disc you've got archived, copy everything from the disc to yer HD, and then burn another data disc to send.

some folks complain about two discs for a show, but atleast every time the show is traded, an md5 is included plus the other stuff...and everyone knows they've got a lossless copy.

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

If you burn using the root folder it won't play in your standalone for sure. If you want to save on burning two discs for every DVD you get try burning without the root folder and see if that plays on your standalone.

Just name the DVD with the show name, drop in the VIDEO_TS folder, and then the txt, md5 and artwork outside of that, not in any folder. It would look like this in Nero, I think that's what you said you use, but it wouldn't let me make the DVD name long enough for the whole date.



For RecordNow! it would look like this:



Then if someone wants it, yes, you can just make a copy of that. They can burn a video DVD if they need it. Or if they request a video DVD you can always make them one.

NO. open the disc in yer explorer window > Select all > Copy > Paste to HD > then burn another UDF/ISO disc [data disc]

just to clarify:
"data discs" are the DVD-ROM (ISO), DVD-ROM (UDF}, and DVD-ROM (UDF/ISO) options nero gives you. i used to use DVD-ROM (ISO) all the time as my trading/archiving disc format...but as feralicius said earlier, DVD-ROM (UDF/ISO) is the better choice these days.

DVD-VIdeo is yer standalone watchable copy...

***but some standalone players *will* play a DVD-ROM (???) disc, you just have to test it. Follow her screenshots above, but i would also add an "Audio_TS" folder to that [leave it empty tho]. alot of standalones need an empty Audio_TS folder for some reason.

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

Hey Aaron, do you know if there's a way to tell how a DVD was burned when you pop it into your DVD-Rom drive, data or video? They both seem to show up the same in Explorer from what I can see.

Re: DVD Trading Burning?

Fera-- PM sent...

re: ^^^, good question. honestly i dont' know. i can *usually* tell by the fact that a data dasc typically has md5s, infotext, etc. but in explorer, a DVD-Video will show up similarly, as a Video_TS and a Audio_TS.

any techheads know anything more? this is a great question we need to explore further...

determining if DVD files are NTSC or PAL

Could someone please point me to a thread or detail info on how to check files to determine if they are NTSC or PAL before I burn them?

I remember seeing reference to tools like Gspot or something that allow one to get details. Does that work with files on a HD or only with a burned disc?

Thanks for any feedback.

Aiko
