How do I burn multiple Video TS folders on one DVD?


Tim D.

Question

I have a few videos that I have recorded on friend's plays and such. They are all in Video TS format and they are 1-2 gigs long. I want to back them up on DVDs, and would like to be able to pack the DVDs full.

 

Can someone explain to me how you would go about add several Video TS folders in Toast 7 to burn on one DVD?

 

Thanks!

Tim.

Your solution to transferring videos did not work for me. I can't drag any files from the browser. If your files are in the movies folder and you click on DVD, you no longer see the individual files. I just think my version of the program is a manufacturer's defect. It doesn't work at all according to what's written in the directions. The people who write manuals for software are always making mistakes, and they don't use proofreaders. Idiots.

If your source is a VIDEO_TS folder then drag it to the desktop (or in the Movies folder) but be certain it isn't inside any other folder. When choosing DVD with the top button of the Media Browser an item should appear in the browser window. Your VIDEO_TS folder needs to be complete (no files removed from the original) and have its IFO file.

Do you want to be able to play the combined videos on a DVD player or are you just wanting to create backups?

 

Let's start with making backups. You do that in the Data window. Choose the Mac only format if you want to be able to span content across multiple discs. Choose New Disc and then add the various VIDEO_TS folders. I'd put them in another folder that I named to tell me which one had what video. Then burn your backups.

 

If you want to transfer videos from multiple VIDEO_TS folders (or DVDs) to a new video DVD, then you need to extract the individual MPEGs from those folders and use Toast to author a new menu and video DVD. This is done by placing a VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop or in the Movies folder. Then choose DVD with the top button of the Media Browser. The lower button takes you to the titles or chapter levels of the disc. Choose the titles level and drag the desired titles to the Toast Video window. Toast will extract the MPEG and write it to the Roxio Converted Items folder. Do the same with other VIDEO_TS folders until the disc gets full. Set up the menu the way you want and burn your new DVD.
