That's not necessary. The MD5 is really used just to double check that you downloaded the show and none of the files are bad.

Now, when you burn them as a DVD (ISO) you can again check the MD5 to ensure that that copying/burning process went fine with no errors.

I'm burning cd's and dvd's all the time because I need to transfer my work (as a musician)...so I am a little carrefull with burning speeds...

for the torrent I downloaded, I tried to burn it as a video dvd.I saw somewhere here that is better to burn it as an dvd-rom (ISO)...


what is your suggestion?
I burn my shows as DVD (ISO) for archiving and DVD Video to watch. So, for a lot of shows, I have 2 DVD's - 1 Data (ISO) and 1 watchable video DVD. Personal preference really.

The only thing I don't understand is why is that necessary? I know it's only personal preference but if you're using the same media for both, they'll both probably corrupt at the same time in 2050 or so...

1. So I can keep all the txt, artwork, and MD5 files together with the data for trading, etc.

2. On the off chance that Nero alters the data files slightly when it's burning. (And, no, I have not checked to see if this is the case personally)

Re: md5 question

don't bother with the ISO

just burn as video DVD

put all the files from "VIDEO_TS" into "VIDEO_TS"

then you can verify by generating an md5 from the disc you burned and testing it with the files on your hd/visually comparing the new md5 with the md5 that came with the show

Re: md5 question

the video dvd does not work either...I found it though...

I created an ISO image for each DVD I downloaded on my HD and then I choose BURN IMAGE to burn the empty DVD from the .iso I created...THAT WAS IT it works PERFECT

Thank you for all your advises and for your time

Re: md5 DVD player/Burner

An md5 file is not a DVD file. It is a check sum file that you use to verify that whatever you downloaded or burned is the same as the originally intended file.

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...l&titlesonly=0

From the FAQ:

Quote:
It has the ability to reduce any file to a single 128-bit number which is unique to that file. Most audio and video trading websites require the generation of checksums for any files as it has the ability to compare two files and determine if they are identical. If your file matches the checksum of the original file, you can confirm that it has not been altered in any way (intentionally or unintentionally) or corrupted during download. Verifying checksums every time a file is transferred is an essential step in the trading of lossless music.
The DVD files are all of the files that are in the VIDEO_TS folder that you downloaded...assuming you downloaded the show from here.

Re: md5 DVD player/Burner

From here
Quote:
FYI: Creating the MDS File and setting File Splitting to AUTO will allow non-NTFS system to use ISO mode. NTFS is the file system used optionally on Windows NT, 2000 and XP. Windows 95, 98 and ME do not have this ability. NTFS limits files to 4GB in size, often too small for a DVD ISO file. The MDS is a information file that will properly remerge the ISO splits when burned.
In most cases i think the mds is not needed.
