I’ve just backed up a DVD using DVDBackup, then run DVD2One on it, then used Toast to burn it to a DVD. But it won’t play; I get a message saying “DVD Player encountered a system error. Could not detect a valid media file (-70001)” when I tried to play the resulting DVD.
I’m using a 15" G4 PowerBook running Panther (Mac OS X version 10.3.5).
This is how I copy the DVD: first I play the movie, or at least play part of it and skip forward through the rest (for some reason this is necessary before it copies on DVDBackup). Then I use DVDBackup, I leave all the options as selected (Change Region to region free, Remove Macrovision Protection selected, and Remove CSS Encryption selected). I drag the icon of the DVD from my desktop onto the program and let it rip.
It makes two folders, called VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS on my desktop. I place these in a new folder named for the film.
Now I close DVDBackup and open DVD2One, and browse to the VIDEO_TS file named for the film, in the Source field. Its files are now listed in the DVD2One window.
I set Output to User Defined, Copy to Join and Ratio to Constant. I choose English in Audio (in the DVD I was trying to back up, I chose AC3 6ch English rather than the other option of AC3 2ch English). If I want subtitles I chose English; I didn’t in the film I was backing up.
Then I press Start, and choose the desktop for the resultant VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS files.
When they are made, I close DVD2One and open Toast, and choose Other, selecting DVD as my choice from the drop-down menu. I drag the new VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders from my desktop to the Toast window. Then I burn the blank DVD with these.
Then I shut down Toast and try to play the DVD, and it’s at this stage that I get the error message “DVD Player encountered a system error. Could not detect a valid media file (-70001)”
What am I doing wrong? Should I be using both VIDEO_TS and AUDIE_TS at all stages of the process?
I’d be grateful for any help.
