Yeah - tried that too (at the suggestion of Mr Lee, author of DVD Imager). His recommendations: always use DVD Imager under a admin account, and put the TS_VIDEO at the root dir. of the boot volume. Didn't work in the cause, tho...

You keep typing TS_VIDEO, I hope you didn't do that on your computer also?

Try Burn instead. Use the Data tab. You can save as a disc image (File menu) first if you want to check again before burning.

Sorry, forgot to remind you to choose DVD (UDF) as the format.

Re: Help requested - Can't generate an IMG from a particular torrent

burn needs a functional instruction set....fucking annoying. D snakes I was able to burn a previously unburnable VIDEO_TS file in the manner fflooy said...the disc has messed up menu though...I will try a few other bad ones and,....come to think of it I will reburn something I know works to test this app more.....as I said the faq etc rather suck ass so be patient (Unlike I was....making coasters galore).

Success! I downloaded Burn and successfully created a good image. Then I burned a DVD from the image and it plays on my Mac, just like it should (insert disk and DVD Player opens in full screen mode, all chapters play good, etc). After work today I'll check the disk out in my external player.

Thanks for the tip. If the disk works in my external player, I'll use Burn from now on.
