Dvd-R And Blu Ray

Question

I have a problem creating a DVD to sell on Amazon. It has to be on a DVD-R disc but when I place it in my Blue Ray player, I get a DVD-R Icon and when I press it does not go to Menu, only to Title 1, Title 2 etc….

 

I’m using Toast 11 on my MacBook Pro.

 

Thanks

Take a look in the Toast Video window to see if auto-play disc on insert and/or play all items continuously is checked. The former starts the disc playing at title one when it is inserted in the player without showing the menu. The latter plays each title continuously including wrapping back to the first title when the last one finishes without going to the menu. Unchecking those before clicking the burn button or choosing Save as Disc Image will cause the DVD to always start with the menu and return to the menu after playing each title.

Thanks,

 

Both boxes are unchecked. The disc goes to the menu upon insertion, but if you press stop and/ or turn off the blu ray player and then switch it back on, the menu does not show; the video does not show. An obscure blu ray menu appears with options "Title 1" , "Title 2", etc. The names of the menu options do not appear, just the 5 choices prefaced by the word "Title" . To get to the menu, one has to click on one of the random title buttons which starts the video over again, and then press top menu.

What you are seeing is normal behavior for a Blu-ray player with a burned DVD. When a DVD is first loaded into a Blu-ray player the player starts playing it automatically. When you stop the video the player goes to the player's menu system where it shows a burned DVD in a generic manner. If you put the same DVD in a regular DVD player and stopped its playback the DVD would start playing back at where it left off (assuming the stop button was not pressed twice).

 

Commercial DVDs behave differently on Blu-ray players because they have some kind of code that tells the player to seek information from Gracenote online that fills in the information about the disc's name. Also the player is forced by how the disc is authored to force playback from the start rather than showing a list of titles in the player's menu. I don't know how that is done. However, there is an app called MyDVD Edit that you can use to modify the instructions in the VIDEO_TS that probably can make this happen on your burned DVD. Maybe there is some instruction associated with that app to help you accomplish this.
