I have back-upped a DVD some time ago on my HDD, and now what should I do so I could burn it on a DVD? It contains those files with those sizes:

 Volume in drive E is Local Disk
 Volume Serial Number is DCE2-1532

 Directory of E:\DVD Back-up\

I would prefer to use CDBurnerXP for this task or anything that’s freeware.

Welcome to the forum andy_blah, ok if you are using double layer 8.5gb blank media then you can use ImgBurn as it is freeware. If you are using Sinlge layer 4.7gb blank media then you can use dvdshrink to compress the video to fit the SL and then you can use ImgBurn to burn to disc


#3

The content fits a single-layer DVD, why would I have to compress it? And I would like to watch this DVD on my DVD Player. Thank-you for welcoming me


#4

As suggested, burn the files with ImgBurn.


#5

Downloaded it and now I am confused with what I should do, can somebody guide me here?


#6

Hi andy blah:

Here are two links to the imgburn guides that should get you going.


#7

Thank-you for the links and suggestions (all 3 of you). It works pefectly and it is displayed by the DVD Player!


#8

Glad it worked. To continue this trend of success, stick with quality media (Verbatim or TY - definitely Verbatim if you are using DL media).


#9

I’ve got Traxdata DVDs at the moment ^_^. I will keep that in mind next time. Thank-you for the suggestion


#10

andy_blah I just mentioned dvdshrink for compressing in case you needed the movie to fit a single layer dvd. I did not know it already fit but anyway now you know about dvdshrink if you ever need it. Glad it all working for you now

[QUOTE=GJ;2147189]I did not know it already fit[/QUOTE]
Weird, since you even quoted his dir listing which listed the size.


#12

I guess you right but the thing is I never looked at the file sizes. I just responded tohis question “[B]what should I do so I could burn it on a dvd”[/B]


#13

It doesn’t really matter now, I thank-you for both suggestions, GJ


#14

No problem that’s what all us cdfreaks are here for
