Is this Troubel with 8?

Question

Running Toast 8, trying to burn a simple DVD. Open a Video_TS folder and select the the video.

Toast imports it and I can edit it, select what audio, what subs, everything seems to work great.

 

Go to burn it, perfect, runs thru and finishes ok.

 

Then it verifies the DVD.

All OK.

 

Take it to my DVD player, will not play, says Playback prohibited by area limitations.

 

The original video is in Pal, My settings are to convert to NTCS.

 

I am at a loss, any info will be greatly helpful.

 

Thans in advance

I'm unclear of the steps you used. The way to access video that's inside a VIDEO_TS folder is to place that folder on the desktop or in the Movies folder. Then select DVD with the top button in the Toast Media Browser. Wait a few seconds for the item to appear in the browser window and then use the lower button to access the titles level. Select the titles you want and drag them to the Video window. When the transfer is complete click the Edit button to select your desired audio track. However, Toast 8 is not yet working if you choose a PCM audio track.

 

Now Toast can transcode the PAL video to NTSC and create your new video DVD.

 

What I'm guessing is you ended up with a PAL DVD even though you thought you were making an NTSC DVD.

When I open toast I was selecting Video_TS and then that imports the video into toast and then it will burn it.

 

That's what I must be doing wrong. Duh.

 

So Open Toast, Select DVD Video, Browse to Video_Ts folder for movie which is in the Movies folder, Burn.

 

I will try it , Thank You for correcting my stupidy.

 

P.S.

 

Using the Video_TS optiion is for creating a Video_ts format, Rip , Correct?

 

What is a PCM Track?

Correct. The VIDEO_TS option is when you want to duplicate some or all of the content in an existing VIDEO_TS folder but it doesn't let you transcode or re-encode that video.

What is a PCM Track?

 

Thanks for the info.

 

In my Video_ts folder there are a lot of files, the video has extras and differnt subs, how do i know which ones to pic.?

Do not concern yourself with what is in the VIDEO_TS folder. Toast sorts all that out when you use the Media Browser. What you see when you use the media browser as I previously described are the individual video titles. You drag the ones you want to the Video window with DVD video selected as the format. Toast extracts the corresponding MPEG files from the VIDEO_TS and writes them to the Roxio Converted Items folder. When that is done you can select the title in the Video window and click the Edit button. This takes you to a window where - if there are multiple audio tracks associated with the title - you can click a button to choose the audio file Toast will use.

 

Some DVDs have PCM audio. Most have AC-3 (or Dolby Digital) and some have MPEG audio. PCM audio is not common although that is what iDVD only creates.

 

You won't have subtitles when you do this process. But this is the process you must follow if you need to transcode PAL video to NTSC (or vice versa). An alternative is to watch PAL DVDs on your computer instead of your TV because the computer doesn't care about the format. I believe there also are some low-cost DVD players that are capable of playing PAL discs on NTSC TVs.

Thank you again for the information.

 

I tried to do the process that you discribed.

 

Got an error of 208.

 

Tried another file and when the files are imported they are not of right size, or length.

 

Maybe my files are corrupted. I did not have any other problems with other media.

 

I just upgraded to Toast 8.0.1 so don't know if that is causing me problems.

 

Thanks again for all you info.

 

Also have popcorn 2 installed. Don't know if they might be conflicting.

That is baffling. There is no conflict with Popcorn, though. Maybe 8.0.1 will do it. You also could try these steps using the DVD that you burned the first time but turned out to remain NTSC. Just insert the DVD and select it with the Media Browser's DVD button to get started.
