Re: invalid dvd file

Have you ever burned a playable DVD before? I'm just wondering if you are doing it wrong. Have you tried searching this forum for other threads about burning DVDs with the software you have?

Re: invalid dvd file

Run the md5 file in the torrent and make sure the files checkout 100%.

1. No conversion is necessary. All DVDs here are ready to burn. Make sure you are using Nero Xpress or Nero Burning Rom. You do NOT want to use Nero Vision Express. That program makes menus. It doesn't burn.

2./3. Not sure. You will only need a basic burning software. Nothing fancy needed.

They are talking about Windows...Not sure which software would work on MAC...


MAC users, any comments?

Re: invalid dvd file

shepstar123,

I would first do what Saltman suggests. Do a MD5 checksum.
It seems to me that you're running a PC as ImgBurn is a Windows program; the best DVD burning program, bar none. Once everything checks out, burn the video.

1. Open up ImgBurn
2. Select Build Mode
3. Point to the folder that directly contains the VIDEO_TS folder (one level above it). If a folder doesn't exist, point to VIDEO_TS
4. Burn

I like QuickSFV (freeware). Install QuickSFV and run the MD5 file by double clicking it.
