Exporting files to DVD with DVDReMakePro3

vbimport

#1

Via DVDReMakePro 3.(something?) I have successfully arranged new chapters points and exported the completed files to my hard drive. Now I want to burn a DVD. How do I merge all of the files (BUP, IFO, TS and VTS)? I want the burned DVD to contain all the newly created chapter points.

I tried to burn a DVD-R by selecting the entire file. I ended up with a DVD with individual files (i.e.: BUP, IFO…etc.). I want to create a functional DVD.

Create Main folder(Name of the movie) with two sub folders AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS.
Copy or move all files to VIDEO_TS folder.
Use any burning software, point to Main folder and burn.


#3

Use ImgBurn (free) in ‘Build’ mode.

Thanks for the advice. Let me make sure I understand (I am a newbie). I create two sub folders within the main folder, one for the audio_TS and another one for the video_TS. Then I move all of the files to the video subfolder (essentially, leaving the audio folder empty). Then, I simply select the main folder to burn on any burning software (Roxio, Microsoft, etc).? These basic burning software systems will automatically “merge” the files properly?? Also, will they keep the new chapter points that I created - or will they automatically place a chapter every 5 minutes or so???

What the…Help! That didn’t work. What do you have to do to merge these files when burning a DVD??? I made a folder, divided it into two sub-folders (labled AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS) then tried to burn the main folder with Roxio and Windows…Both programs indicated that the file could not be found. I tried just “adding” the VIDEO_TS folder…same thing. The files are there. I can play the movie on my computer. Do I need a specific type of burner software? I just bought DVDReMakerPro. I hope I didn’t waste my money.

What did you do with Remake. Did you export files after editing (green icon in Remake, second from top left corner).
In VIDEO_TS folder there should be Video_ts. IFO. Is it there.
I do not use Roxio, but if it is any similar to Nero it should import main folder.
Otherwise use ImgBurn.
It may be a good idea if you take a picture of your VIDEO_TS folder files and post it here to see what you have there.
If you did it right all files are there, they do not have to be merged, because all the info for them to be displayed correctly is there.
Files on DVD are not merged, they are broken into 1GB chunks with .IFO files for navigation, to put it simple way.

This is soooo frustrating! I downloaded ImgBurn and attempted to burn the files to DVD. Initially, everything appeared to be going well. Then….when the program gets to the “Verifying Sectors” portion of the burn, I get an “I/O Error” message. I tried the entire process with a different DVD program (exported the files into a VIDIO_TS folder, then opened ImgBurn to burn the folder onto a DVD). The same thing happens –during the Verifying Sectors process the error occurs (not in the same place each time – at one point the process failed at 7%, during the next attempt – with the same program files – the failure occurred at 33%). Could this have something to do with the fact that I’m using #@$% Vista - compatibility issue?

HELP!


#9

Are you talking about [B]Verify [/B][I]after [/I]the burn is complete? If so did you try to play the DVD? The Verify option is not to be trusted.

Addendum…

I tried again, this time at a different speed (x6) - I have also tried x8. I’m using Verbatim DVD-R “Digital Movie” media.:sad:

MysticEyes,

Yes, this is after the successful burn. However, it will not play properly - It will play up to the point of failure (then the picture - “frame”, whatever…) just stops (freezes) and then does not respond to comands (previous, forward, stop, play, etc.).


#12

Well as a test grab a know working DVD you have and copy it with ImgBurn. Mode-> Read, then -> Write to see if that works.


#13

It looks like your burn fail at the beginning of movie VTS_01_1.VOB.
Did you try to play the file in software player. Window Media may not work, but any other player should be OK.
According to your first thread, you changed chapters. I wonder if that is a problem.

SUCCESS!!
After switching DVD-R media from Verbatim to Sony and burning at x2 rather than x8 or x6 (as before), everything is now working just fine. The issue was either the burn speed or the media. I have read that Verbatim is one of the most desirable media???
I appreciate all your support. This is a really great site, undoubtedly because of members like you.
Thanks.
