Re: still confused about converting/watching phish dvd???

you can use dvd shrink, select 'open files' and burn w/ that, but i use dvd shrink coupled w/ nero to burn dvd's so....

Re: converting/watching phish dvd?????how to?

You could tell me what files are inside, so that I can take a guess if the file structure is DVD compatible. Sometimes people produce DVDs without the VIDEO_TS files, which makes some burning progs fail to recognize it as a proper DVD.

Question about dvd burning

I recently downloaded the Aerosmith Houston '77 dvd from this forum. The size on the thread said it was small enough for a dvd something like 4.25 Gigs. After downloading the files I went to burn the dvd with nero. After draging the video files onto nero the program unpacked the files and it is now to big for a dvd. I cannot even fit the show let alone the menues, slide show ect.

I have been running into this a lot. even small 500mb .wmv files are unpacking to be way to large for a single dvd. Sometimes Over 5 Gigs!!! What is going on here? Why can't I fit things onto dvd's? People say nero is thge best...almost everyone I know uses it.

How can I fit things onto dvd's when dvd burning programs make things so big

Any help would be appriciated!!!

Re: Question about dvd burning

You probably didn't chose DVD-Video as type of project. Try making sure that you got that, then just drag your downloaded VIDEO_TS into the one on your new disk.

And now let's wait for the people that tell you what a noob you are for posting that in the Lounge.

Re: Question about dvd burning

I am using dvd video. The VIDEO_TS file is only a 8kb file and will not drag onto nero. What is the VIDEO_TS file anyway?? I dragged all of the 5 larger video files (example: "VTS_01_2") onto nero and the size became to big. Nero makes it bigger...the video files downloaded say mpeg file. I think nero decodes the files and makes them bigger. How am I supposed to burn anything on this ite or anywhere else when nero makes almost everything too big for a dvd+r?

Re: Question about dvd burning

I'm moving this to Technobabble.

The Aerosmith Houston DVD is only 4.04 GB, so it will easily fit onto the DVD. You want to drag all of these files into the VIDEO_TS folder in Nero:

VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.BUP
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.IFO
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.VOB
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_2.VOB
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_3.VOB
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_4.VOB
VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_5.VOB

Nero should simply burn those - no conversion is necessary.

Re: Question about dvd burning

When you see Nero doing any checks or conversions, it's already the wrong path. Look for an option to manually browse and add files to the VIDEO_TS folder.

Re: Question about dvd burning

when I drag the files onto nero it reads (in red) under the project window "problems may occur when burning the project. Press the details button..." when pressed it reads "the following problems were detected in your project: your project requires more space than available on the selected destination device..."

The Aerosmith dvd files are in mpeg format. And there is some decoding and/or encoding that occurs while nero accepts the files. All of the files when highlighted on windows display a total size of 4.04G yet when I drag them over nero makes them 4.86G

Also the dvd menu that was included with the download does not become the menue. Nero still provides a generic menu awaiting design.

Nothing is going right here...help!!!...please!!!!

Re: Question about dvd burning

I just tried this: in nero>add video files>file browser>location>desktop>video_ts>highlighted all>open

nero places 5 video files onto the project window and says it's too big.

Re: Question about dvd burning

But when it puts the files into the project, does it check or convert anything?
