Auto Start When Disk Inserted


Convertible

Question

I have been using MyDVD 6 for several years with Windows XP to put movies I record in Windows Media Center onto DVD. I recently upgraded to Windows Vista Ultimate and EMC 10.

 

In MyDVD 6, I would "Edit Style" and check a box that would play the first movie when the disk is inserted into a DVD player without first displaying the menu. I could not find a comparable setting in MyDVD 10.

 

I did test burning to an Image file (image.iso) and to Folder set. When I burned each type to DVD, the Image file version displayed the menu, but the Folder began playing the movie when the disk was inserted.

 

Is this one of the difference between the two options, or did I unknowingly set an option somewhere else that caused this behavior? Are there advantages of using one type over the other?

To create a DVD without menus:

 

after launching myDVD, select File/New project and then DVD, No Menus from the drop-down menu. You will then be prompted to add your movie.

When burning to DVD many users first burn to a Folder Set or ISO image file instead of directly to DVD. The folder set or image file can then be burned to DVD using Video COpy and ConvertThis separates the rendering and burning into 2 separate processes and seems to give a better, more reliable DVD

You must have set an option different when you burned to a folder set. Does the control return to a menu after playing the folder set?

 

I discovered that if you record to a Folder set, and then use Roxio Video Copy & Convert, there is a check box on the Burn screen to play the movie first.

As I mentioned in my original post, I do burn to either an image.iso file or a Folder set before burning the actual DVD. I did not state that I didn't want menus, but that I wanted the movie to automatically play when inserted into a play instead of showing the menu first. When I burned to an image.iso, I got the menu first.

 

The behavior I want (which is what I was able to achieve with MyDVD 6 with the "Play First" option on the Edit Style screen), is to have the movie started automatically when the DVD is inserted into a player, but I could still get to the menu if I wanted. This is what I appear to get when I burned to a Folder set instead of an image.iso file.

 

My question is, if buring to a Folder set produces a DVD that plays the movie when inserted into a play without first displaying the menu, or did I accidentally set an option that I have not been able to find again since?

Burning either a video-folder or an ISO has nothing to do with what you want.

 

Place the video in the Intro and also as a title in your menu.That should play the video automatically when you insert the DVD and after the video, it will show the menu.
