Moved this to Technobabble.


Do you have a DVD burner?
What software do you have?

Re: Burn onto DVD

I have a DVD/CD burner, i just dont know what software to use or how to do it.
B/c most of the DVD burning software clones from one DVD and backs it up to the DVD-R and all i have are the files, such as VIDEO_TS.

And is there a free way to do it?

Thanks

That will work fine:

to burn a "watchable" copy [i.e. on yer home dvd player]:

--select "DVD-Video" as yer project type
--drag *all* of the files in the show's Video_TS folder [.ifo, .bup, & .vob files] to the RED Video_TS folder in the project window.
--burn

to burn a "data disc" [which is what you'll want to use for archiving & trading]:
--open Nero Burning ROM
--select "DVD-ROM [ISO/UDF]" as yer project type
--drag the entire show's folder to the project window [including the Video_TS folder, info text, the .md5 checksum, artwork, etc]
--burn
Also, my advice is to spend the $$ and get the full version of Nero.

Dvd Shrink

I recently combined 2 sets of a show (6.6 gigs) to burn on my new dual layer burner using Dvd shrink. I didn't realize it was set to shrink the dvd to 4.7 gigs automically. Then I watched it, and didn't really notice too much of a quality difference. I was just wondering if there really would be a noticable difference if I burned the whole show shrinked to fit on a regular dvd-r?

Re: Dvd Shrink

Depends how anal you are. There is always going to be SOME loss of quality in compression, its not always that noticable. If you plan on trading it, I would make a note of the compression.

Re: Dvd Shrink

for personal use, no worries...with live shows, only occasionally will you notice any loss of quality using dvd shrink

for archiving & trading, DO NOT use the "shrunk" version...always trade with the original version, even if that means burning two discs instead of one

Re: Dvd Video Files Reallocation Failed. DVD might be unplayable

I know this has come up before, try looking through these threads:

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...earchid=291717

Seems most people were still able to watch the DVD on their computer or stand alone DVD player.
