Re: DVD burning question

If this was a dvd9 (dual layer - 8.5GB) disc and you are trying to put it on a dvd5 (single layer - 4.7GB) disc you will need to compress it with DVDshrink. If you won't to split it up you will lose the menus. I think DVDShrink can do this also.... but someone with more experience may need to comment on that.

Re: DVD burning question

I just downloaded my first video from the site. Will any dvd burning software recognize the file types that i downloaded or will i need software to convert the files before i can burn them. Any help would be great.

you should NOT have to convert anythig downloaded from this site. Only pre authored DVDs are for download here. Any software should be able to burn them without issue. However, if you don't want to burn onto dual layer dvds (DVD9 - which are pretty darn expensive) you will have to convert them to DVD5 for burning onto a single layer disc. This conversion will only be required for burning dvd9s onto dvd5 media. does that make sense?

Re: 2plies dvd into normal

"Double DVDs" are more commonly called "dual layer DVDs" or "DVD9s". Normal DVDs are called "DVD5s".

Re: 2plies dvd into normal

I was under the impression that all players supported dual layer discs. Does your player have any problems with movie DVD's that you have rented or bought? A great many, if not most are dual layer. Especially if they have lots of extra features. Are the DVD's -R or +R? Maybe your player has a problem with one of those formats or with burned DVD's in general.

All players support dual layer, but not all burners are capable of burning dual layer.

This show? http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=13211
If so that's a 2 disc show, Full Size: 10.14 GB won' fit on 1 disc.

Re: Question about DVD9

Each set is a separate DVD9.

Re: Question about DVD9

That answers the question in this case.

I think garrettt3 was thinking if he had set 1 and set 2 of a show. Both being 4 gb why couldn't he just put both sets on one cd.

He said he was having a problem with two VTS_01_1.VOB, VTS_01_2.VOB etc in the same folder.

You need to author the DVD as a DVD9. You cannot simply put both folders in the Video_ts. It's a pain to reauthor if you don't have a fast computer so it's not worth it IMO. Plus dvd9's are much more expensive so that's another reason for the time being.
