Creating Dvd With Data Area



I am trying to create a DVD which upon insertion into a DVD player would play a short .dv file, and which would also contain a couple gigabytes of data available to computer DVD drives.


When I drag or "Add" my files to the Toast window it tries to make slideshows and stuff from the data. I want only to add data, as data. iDVD can do this: can Toast?

Yes Toast can do this. Click the More button in the Formats panel of the Video window. There you'll see the Add data content check box. The following is from Toast Help:


Add data content: Select this option to include any additional data in the DVD-ROM portion of the disc. This data will be accessible when the DVD is used on a Macintosh or Windows computer. After preparing your DVD but before recording the disc, switch to the Data tab and choose DVD-ROM format. Add files and folders to the Content Area. Switch back to the Video tab and click the red Record button.


I'd choose Save as Disc Image rather than clicking the burn button. That way I can use the Toast Copy window to mount the disc image to check that it has everything the way I want before burning it to DVD (click the burn button in the Copy window).
