yeah, the .cdr conversion didn't work. i read that if i entered it at the end of my file when converting in disk utility that it would convert to an .iso file. i don't believe that the show is dual layer. and i have been burning the two discs separately. as far as the checksums go, bear with me as i really haven't done much with checksums before. i put the mds file for each disc(separately) into my xACT program under the checksum tab and processed them. they both come up as an error. then i get a window which shows each of the files in the video_ts file and reads "no such file or directory" and "failed open or read" did i do this correctly, and if so, what does it mean? is it damaged? frustrated.

Re: dvd mac burning issue

You may have to (temporarily!) move the checksums into the VIDEO_TS folder in order to run the checksums on them.

ok, tried moving the checksums and they all came back as ok so i guess that's not the problem.

Re: dvd mac burning issue

OK, I just installed DVD Imager on my computer....

Opened it up
Dragged a VIDEO_TS folder into the window
Left the Method as "VIDEO_TS Folder mode"
I hit Create Image
It asked me where to save it
It asked me for a name - "TEST_ONE"

The first time I did this, I did it with a show I was currently seeding and so it would not make an image for me. I ended up with a file "TEST_ONE.img" that was Zero in size. I didn't get an error or anything, DVD Imager simply closed. So, I tried again on a show that I am not currently seeding and a DVD Imager Status window popped up and it took a few minutes for it to create a file. But, I eventually ended up with a file called "TEST_ONE.img" that was slightly larger than the original VIDEO_TS folder - original was 3.29 GB, this image file was 3.31 GB. I then double-clicked on the img file, and it mounted on my desktop and I could see the contents - an empty AUDIO_TS folder and a VIDEO_TS folder with exactly the same contents as the original VIDEO_TS folder that I selected.

Is this the same process that you went through?

Re: dvd mac burning issue

Well, except that you aren't ending up with an img file, right? And, if you double-click it, it doesn't mount on the desktop.... and you can't open it and view the contents of the file, right?

Are you burning to a DVD-R? or DVD+R?

Re: dvd mac burning issue

no, i am able to do all those things. i double click on the disk image, it mounts, VIDEO_TS(with same files as original) and empty AUDIO_TS folders are present. i can view it with no problems including menus and song list in the dvd player application. from here i've selected the .img file in disk utility and burned with the same problem again. i'm trying a different program called "burn" that is creating the disk image and burning all in one. hopefully it will works.

Re: dvd mac burning issue

I can't think of why your computer is acting like that. Have you tried rebooting it and seeing if the issue persists?

Which Mac are you using? What type of DVDs did you buy?

i've tried rebooting it with no luck. it still won't accept the disc. burned the second disc and it does the same thing, works on my dvd player but not my computer. i have a powerbook g4 and am using memorex dvd-r's. i've made copies of dvds before with discs from this same spindle with no issues so i'm confused as ever. but at least they're burned. i guess i just won't be viewing them on my computer.

I'd suggest you try resetting the PRAM just in case. Restart and then once the machine has shut down but before it actually restarts, hold down command-option-p-r (finger gymnastics) until you hear the start up chimes 4 times.

Re: dvd mac burning issue

bushboy, it would be interesting to know if your discs play in other computers. Take one to work or to a friends house or a computer store and see if it plays there.
