I created 2 video projects in FCP, exported them to compressor, compressed them to .m2v & .ac3 files so they would fit on a DVD. Then built a menu in DVDSP, burnt it, and it doesn't play on anything besides my own Macbook(leopard OSX10.5.8). What DVD menu & burning software (preferrably free) can I use that will playback on all DVD players and computers? I have Sony DVD-R discs to burn with.

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the Professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Professional to assist you right away with your Mac issue, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

Welcome ,I will give a full and clear answer to your question, please make sure to reply to any questions I have. They may be essential to my reply.

Heres the low down .

Most home dvd players prefer DVD+R generally.
Also many home DVD players are simply not capable of playing burnt disks especially older models.

On top of this some home dvd players might not like a brand of DVDs so please try another brand keeping in mind +R.

 

DVD-RW or DVD+RW "read write" are even less likely to play on home DVD players.

 

The AUDIO_TS folder is needed also for some players , normally included in creation of a DVD using Toast or iDVD.

iDVD can burn a DVD that will play in a home DVD player with the above rules.

I hope this helps , please try DVD+R and or a different brand such as TDK
and let me know if this helps.

Note:
Roxio toast can also make and produce DVDs with menus or burn Video_TS folders to DVD , You can export / save as VIDEO_TS folders using iDVD also.

A VIDEO_TS folder would normally be burnt using UDF format .
UDF v1.02

Can you tell me what are the correct preferences and settings in DVD Studio Pro to burn a DVD that works on universal players? The DVD's I've made don't have an audio ts folder. The files on the disc are:


HVDVD_TS > BUP/IFO/EVO files.


 


I need to know how to convert the files already on a disc AND know how to compress & build it right from the start.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Please answer my question!

Hi ,

Reason not playing . Your burning HVDVD etc .
Wont play in Standard Definition DVD players.

Youd need a SD project for SD DVD to be default.

More info.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtVr3YJvK24

So choose Red laser , would be the choice for SD DVD burns.
Use Single layer or dual depending on your DVD medias physical type.

Does this help.

Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
