Copy Ilife '06 6.2 Gig Dvd


internettools

Question

I bought a family license for iLife 06, and I want to make a copy to send to my Mom, 1,000 miles away. The DVD contains 6.2 gig and Toast says it's Dual Layer.

 

3 questions

 

1 ) Her iMac is the first generation G5 and I'm not sure her DVD player can even read this disc.

 

2) I want to make a copy to send her. Is that possible ?

 

3) If so, what type of disk do I copy to - dvd-r dvd+r etc etc

 

Toast says iLife '06 is a 6.24 GB DVD-ROM (two layers, layer break at 1636544)

 

In addition to my internal new iMac G5 superdrive (Matshita DVD-R UJ-846)

 

I have a 2 year old Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-106D

 

Assuming I can't copy to the older pioneer, can I copy from the Matshita to hard disk, put in a blank disk (DVD-ROM ?) and then create a copy using the internal drive ?

 

Thanks in advance for any clues along these lines.

Sounds like your right on target. Once a dual layer is burned, it should be like any DVD you stick in there. Example, movies are "dual layer".

You can use Toast to create a disc image file of the source disc and save to your hard disk. Then you can use the Toast data spanning feature to split this file across two DVDs, then take the 2 new DVDs to the new system and restore to a single image on the new hard disk and double-click and go from there.

Thanks for clue as I had no idea what dual layer really means. This is a very confusing area this DVD stuff :-)

 

So I think you are saying, that if I can burn this onto one DVD, then my Mom's computer can read it.

 

My 2nd generation G5 iMac (couple months old), can burn DVD+R DL.

 

So could I copy to this format ?

 

And if so, can her first generation G5 iMac (15 months old) with Superdrive read it ?

 

Thanks again for clarifying.

Thank you very much.

 

Does my Mom need to have Toast on her computer to restore to a single image ?

 

Currently she does not, and I would prefer not to have to buy it for her. I did buy her Impression which is a DVD backup utility, just in case that software can restore 2 disks into one.
