Well I’ve gotten past the point of pulling out my hair, after 2 attemps and 14 or-so hours put into an anime DVD that I was trying to author; I have simply given up. So I came to CDfreaks.com to see if one of the local DVD-gurus could save my soul, mind, and DVD from any further torture.
I have followed various “guides” including one written by the very well respected Doom9 and needless to say, my d4mn DVD still won’t work. I started from the begining getting torrents via BitComet, I then extracted the vid and audio using VDub and then encoded the video using TMPGEnc; where i later brought all of the audio and video into DVD-Lab Pro. After hours (see above) I had what I wanted; a professional looking and sounding DVD with transitions, motion menus, interactive quizzes, and even a slideshow of fanart!
Everything works beautifully until I go to compile everything, everything compiles ok, (no serious errors), but when I go to test my DVD on Nero Player, there are NO menus, the disk auto boots to the middle of the 1st episode! Then when you hit > next, the dvd goes right into another episode. It does this for about 4 episodes (there are SUPPOSED to be 6 on the DVD) and then just errors out! After I compiled the DVD I took a look @ the VIDEO_TS folder and found only some of the files that are supposed to be there (it includes VTS_ 01_1 thru VTS_01_9) and some of those VTS_ files are the size of Okb while others are up to 700,000 kb!
Please someone help me!
