zaina, the problem with that approach is two-fold. That version of PowerDVD may not work on newer titles. And opening the m2ts file directly leaves you at the mercy of whatever audio is non-HD. Meaning if they only have an english HD audio track (dts hd ma, truehd, lpcm, whatever) and the dolby digital are in spanish, french, etc, then you’re screwed doing it that way. I am very much an advocate of ISOs because it allows for greater flexibility in what software you can use.
If you want an absolutely EASY way to create ISOs using ImgBurn, here’s a script I wrote:
set PathToImgBurn=C:\Program Files\ImgBurn
start /d"%PathToImgBurn%\" ImgBurn.exe /MODE BUILD /BUILDMODE IMAGEFILE /SRC "%SRC%\%1" /DEST "%DEST%\%1.ISO" /FILESYSTEM "UDF" /UDFREVISION "2.50" /VOLUMELABEL "%1" /CLOSE /NOIMAGEDETAILS /ROOTFOLDER "YES" /START
Save that to a file called makeISO.bat and put it in your path somewhere. Change the src and dest directories to match your system. To use it:
So if you had:
You’d call makeISO SIMPSONS to make a SIMPSONS.iso that can be mounted. Simple as that.
