Ok, so I have done my best to find an answer online and on this site to my problem, but while having found similar issues, am still unable to get past this problem. So, about 10 wasted discs later and huge increase in frustration, here I am asking for help.
What I want to do is Burn some AVI’s (divx) to a blank DVD (Preferably Re-Writables) and then play them back on my DVD Player (LG DR389) which supports Windows Media, Divx, and AVI’s.
Now, I have been able to do this successfully using Windows DVD maker which makes a nice DVD menu and Works like a charm, however, a mate of mine lent me a DVD with AVI’s on it which when loaded just showed all the AVI’s on the disc and then allowed me to select the one I wanted to watch and then played it perfectly.
So, what I want it to be able to burn my AVI’s to a DVD just like the example above, without and fancy DVD menu etc. This way I will be able to get more files onto the DVD as using Windows DVD maker there is alot of extra bloat not to mention the fact that it takes forever to create the disc.
I tried just dragging the files onto my DVD writer drive which copied them to the disc and played back on my PC just fine, but DVD player wont recognise the disc. I also tried copying the files to the disc using Windows “Create a Data DVD using Windows Media Player” This did not work either, in that DVD player still does not show the menu listing all the AVI files on the disc. I tried using DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but no difference.
Ok, so I know its is possible to do on my DVD Player as I have the disc from a mate which works, So I am assuming it has something to do with how I copy the AVI files to the DVD disc, I dont know if it is a disc format type problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
