Is There A Trial Version

Question

Is there a trial version of this software to see if it will work for my needs. I have some unfinalized dvds that were burned on a Toshiba dvd Recorder that is now broken. I am interested to see if this software can do anything with them. I have Easy Media Creator suite 10 and it knows there is info on the disk and I can make .gi files but I was curious if newer software would do anything more than that such as close the disk.

If EMC 10 cannot finalize the disc then I doubt newer software will do it. I don't understand what you mean by "I can make .gi files".

Did you read about "finalizing" the disc in the Toshiba recorder. Was it done automatically? gi files are data global image files so you can burn them to a DVD.

From the help menu.:

 

The files in a Burn Data Disc project can be converted into a single file known as a disc image file. That disc image file can then be used to reproduce the original file set on a disc. There are several disc image file types or formats. The Burn Data Disc project creates disc image files in the standard ISO Image (*.iso) format.

Disc image file types

 

There are several disc image file types or formats. The Burn Data Disc project can create disc image files in the Global-Image (*.gi) and ISO Image (*.iso) formats. Global-Image files contain not only the data files on a disc, but the exact placement of those files, their folder structure, read and write properties, and much more.

Some mastering products cannot read the proprietary Global-Image format. This could cause a problem if someone needed to create a disc from your disc image file and they did not have the necessary software installed on their computer. For this reason, you also have the option to create disc image files in the ISO Image (*.iso) format.

You should also be sure to select a file type that matches the disc format you are planning to use. For instance, if you want to create an ISO image and eventually burn it to a DVD disc, select “DVD ISO Image (*.iso)” as the file type.

Been ages since I played with a Video_RM disc!

 

The disc structure should look like ths:

DVD+RW:

You should be able to ADD Movie in VideoWave by picking any of the files:

Should that not work, Plan B is to copy the VOB files to your HDD and rename them xxx.MPG.

 

They should work at that point ;)

 

But only the Recorder can Finalize or Close a recording disc -_-
