How come when using DVDfab 5 for my rips, I am getting a little icon in the folder that says dvdid? What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks

As per Fengtao’s release notes for v. 5.0.2.0:

[B]New: Created “dvdid.xml” file when copying DVD, so that Windows Media Center can retrieve cover art and movie info from internet automatically.[/B]

Is it ok to delete the dvdid or a way to turn it off? I do not see how there is any advantage to using it and do not want it to effect my burns.

Yes it is OK to delete it. There is no option to turn it off that I can find.


#6

So it can simply be deleted with no effect to the rip?

What is the purpose of this dvdid?

MWB, thanks for that. I understand what it does, what I wanna know is why it is there and how to turn it off.


#9

It is there because it is a feature, I guess. It cannot be turned off.


#10

Nowhere to disable, I checked. Just delete, I do & it hasn’t created any problems.


#11

Well, I guess I will simply delete it. It really shouldn’t effect the burn in anyway as it does not go in the VIDEO_TS file.

Compared to some of the crap the studios (e.g. Sony) put onto DVDs, this is less than nothing. :slight_smile:

Download and install the new 5022 version

Dvdid is turned off by default. You can turn it on in options.

Is it still available in version 5222? How do I turn it on? I’m using Full Disk option in DVDFab and Windows Vista. Is it only available in Platinum version?

In common settings-DVD to DVD, uncheck Create dvdid xml to not have the file and put a check to have it
