Re: gettin' fed up with dvd burnin!!!

Are you using good quality DVD blanks or the cheap store brand types? Check out www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm for recommendations on choosing your dvd blanks.

I also recently started downloading dvd's and also use Nero for burning and I haven't had a coaster yet using Maxell and Sony dvd+r media.
This week, Office Depot's here have Sony 50 packs for $15. Watch for sales and the good shit is about the same price as the crappy dvd's. Less than a month ago Office Depot had the Maxell 100 packs for $28.

I dont remeber the details of it, but its not very difficult. Do a search for ifo edit header trick and you should find directions.
The latest version of IFOEdit states that it doesn't work well with WinXP. Are there any other programs to edit the IFO files that might work with XP?

The uploader at Zomb said it was NTSC with a frame rate of 29.970 but some one else has confirmed that it was PAL.
Thanks.

Re: Burning a DVD - Region Settings

You can also buy an Apex DVD player for 30 bucks that will play everything (NTSC and PAL, etc). That wat you'll never have to worry about doing the IFOedit thing.

Re: Burning a DVD - Region Settings

There are menu hacks for most dvd players, try googling it.
Also, you asked about how to see if a dvd is Pal or NTSC, if you have nero, use the disc info tool, it'll tell you everything

Re: Burning a DVD - Region Settings

Thanks to everyone, InfoEdit worked like a charm. I don't know if it affected the playback quality or not but it plays and was certainly a simple fix.

My entertainment center is too full to add a $30 Apex what with 2 amps, pre-amp, vcr, dvd surround sound processor, tuner, cd player, tv, center channel speaker and an audio switching box (lack of inputs on tube pre-amp).

glad that worked...the quality shouldn't have changed, as nothing was actually converted...i would still archive the orig files for trading, and use the IFOEdit-copy as yer "watchable copy"

Download DVDs via Bit Torrent

I downloaded the show via Bit Torrent, now what do I do with the files to be able to watch them? First time DVD downloaded. Usually, with audio, I would go to xACT and convert to a wav and then play them in iTunes. I have an iBook. Any guidance would be great! Thanks.

Re: Download DVDs via Bit Torrent

I suggest using Toast, it's not free but is the best DVD burning software around for Mac. You can find it "discounted" if you look hard enough.

Torrentspy.com. You can watch on your comp by drag&dropping the VIDEO TS folder to your favorite player, Nero, WinDVD, You can also go for freeware, VLC plays almost everything. Hope this helps.

5.1 DTS question

Background:

I have a Sony DVD player which states that it handles 5.1 and DTS.

I have a Sony Receiver that handles 7.1 and DTS

I have bought a few things that have enhanced audio: (Pulse DVD, Humble Pie - Live At The Whiskey DVD Audio, Yes - Fragile DVD Audio, etc.) I can listen to them in all their infinite glory. I can also listen to SACDs and the enhanced audio on the Dual Discs.

However....when I try and download a 5.1 DTS (like the toup beatles series or some of the Floyd stuff) All I get is the "white noise" from my player. I also get the same result with any 24bit show that I try and listen to as well.


I am using the latest Nero suite to burn. I have tried to burn several different ways. I even followed a tutorial of "burning image to disc". I still get the same results of white noise in my home audio equipment.

What am I doing wrong?
Do I need better software? or Upgrade audio equipment?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

that's becuase you have the file associations setup so that .vob is associated with Showtime. You should be able to burn with Nero express without changing your associations. You should have the .vob file associated to your DVD viewer... like PowerDVD or whatever you use. To change associations.... when in My Computer. Tools > Folder Options > Opens with ... browse to your viewer.
