Re: 5.1 DTS question

yer player &/or receivere may not be able to process 24-bit audio, which would explain the white noise when trying to play back 24-bit shows...as for the DTS problem, i'm not sure...it could be a problem with one of the components, have you tried playing a store-bought DVD with DTS? does the white noise occur as well, or just with home-authored shows?

also could be an issue w/ Nero you should check out the program ONES--much better burning software!

Re: Burning a DVD - Region Settings

The conversion is being done by the player, so how good it looks is based on how well the players converter performs, but most of them are fine for ROIO's. What I used to do to keep a tradeable copy is just backup the original ifo files and burn them onto the disc along with the altered ones (name them something like *.ifoORIG) and just switch back to those when burning a copy for a trade.

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

I use Nero too, and I can't figure it out, either. I think it has to do with the two layers. Do I just burn the two folders on the disc or do I have to insert the audio/video parts somewhere? What is the video_ts mean (or whatever the folders say)?? I hve like ten shows waiting to be burned, but can't figure it out and it's taking up my hd space... thanks for any help.

Maybe if someone could do a walk through on how to burn a disc, that would be helpful. There's no instructions on how to take a d/led show and burn it.

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

I had the same problem with Nero, try using Ones. After my ones expired my nero magically started working. Also I do all my burning after a restart and don't open any other programs except for Nero. And like people say on here use the Nero ROM not the express or anything. Hope I could help.

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

I alway use IfoEdit to double check before I burn. Just open the VIDEO_TS.IFO and hit get VTS sectors



for instructions on burning with Nero look here and many other threads in this forum

trouble burning dvd

I just got into downloading dvd files after years of downloading audio files. Now, while it is still new ground for me, I feel that I have progressed in a relatively decent manor; until today. I just picked up a 25 pack of sony dvd-r so i can watch concerts on my home player. Before I used the discs that were given to me when i got my drive from the store. They weren't bad, just that I could only use them on certain players. So, after pickin up the new blanks, I wanted to be able to burn the dmb2005-08-21 gorge concert that I had downloaded a while ago. So I place the disk in, message window pops up, close that, start nero (oem version), load all of the files into the video-ts folder. Once the program started, it went through all of the cache-ing that it goes through, and then and error message popped up saying that it was an illegal disk. At first I thought to myself that maybe the disks were labled wrong, checked it, sure enough - dvd-r. So I tried it again, same thing. And just to make sure that I wasn't going crazy or seeing things, I checked the drive info through nero, and noticed that my drive handled these types of disks. So... after reading so related topics on here, I decided to give ones a try (simple user interface, its great). So, I put the disk in, try burning, crapped out again, ran two tests through Ones, both crapped out. Even testing on 1x, it failed. As far as I know, its not the burner itself, because it worked fine earlier when I burned oar2005-11-19 from RPI field house.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really want to get this off of my hd, so I can watch it, and have more space to download more.

Re: trouble burning dvd

Doing a quick google search netted these:

http://www.google.com/search?q=nero+...en-US:official

1. Make sure the firmware (drivers) for your DVD drive is updated. I didn't see you note what drive you're using but just go to the manufacturer's website and they should have it there.

2. Make sure Nero is all up to date.

3. Could be shitty media. I've never used Sony so I can't comment on them overall, although you could have gotten a bad batch. Try #'s 1 and 2 first and let us know how it goes.

Re: trouble burning dvd

Shouldn't be the Sony's. I have a Lite-On dvd burner and it loves Sony's even more than the Maxell's I also have used. Sony's are amony the top-rated dvd blanks.

I can't tell you what you're problem is. Dumb question but it's probably something I would do - did you accidentally put the dvd blank in the Lite-On LTN486?

Try "Video Lan Client" also known as VLC. It's free and powerful.
