I have a shared, bootleg (non-commercial) DVD of a concert. It is a PAL version. I have been unable to create a good working NTSC copy that will play in my stand-alone dvd player.
I use Nero OEM 22.214.171.124.5, XP. I am attempting to research how to rip, copy and burn these type of dvds with this software. This post is part of the effort to edicate myself. Can anyone here give me some tech help or direct me to a good resource?
Background: I’ve done a lot of trial and error, with all sorts of errors, from “burn process failed” to creating a NTSC disc, but without a scrollable, interactive menu or (song) chapters. And that’s what I want: a NTSC format that has menu where I can click “Play”, “Next page” and “Select songs.”
I initially used Nero Recode to create what I assume were NTSC format files. There were 11 files, VIDEO_TS and VTS_01. (I have no idea what I’m looking at in the folder.) I don’t understand what the difference is between “Make a DVD” and “Make a Movie” in Nero, but I tried both. With each, the best I could do was get a dvd that started with the opening “menu shot”, that ran for 25 seconds, followed by the all the songs on the original. The concert is apparently all one file, rather than individual songs (chapters) like in the original. Like I said, I want an interactive menu like the original, and the ability to skip around to individual songs, as with the original.
I was able to make a disc-to-disc copy, but that was PAL, not playable in my DVD player. I know it worked on the computer, but I can’t recall if it had the interactive menu, etc.
What am I doing wrong? Or is this the best that I can expect?
