What project did you use the burn the VIDEO_TS folder? Make sure that you're in a VIDEO --> VIDEO_TS Folder project before you add the folder to the Toast window.

 

If you are in the correct project and it isn't playing on your set-top DVD player, you may want to try using a different type of disc (DVD-R vs +R) or burning at a slower write speed which may result in your DVD player being able to read the disc. As a general rule some players also seem to have more problems with RW discs.

I used the correct project. I tried using dvd+r and a dvd+r dl. Both work in my computer but not in my dvd player. I guess I can try a dvd-r. Thanks.

Some players can be picky about what they'll play on burned media, if you have a DVD-R definitely try it and let us know.

I burn all of my MTR Video_TS files under Data DVD-ROM(UDF). I use Taiyo Yuden -R SL burned at 8X and Verbatim +R DL burned at 4x.

Also make sure what format your DVD player can read. If it's NTSC it can't play PAL and visa versa. Most computers now can play both, but many stand alone DVD players are still one or the other, I don't know what you have though.

Nothing is working. Let me be more specific on what I am trying to do.

 

I bought the first 6 seasons of the series 24. Unfortunately, I bought them from the UK so they are region coded and in PAL format. I have a macbook pro and I have been trying to copy the DVDs so I can watch them on my tv with a blue ray disc player. I first used mac the ripper 2.6.6. to take the region out. Next I used Toast 10 to burn on to a dvd+r dl. I also used other types of dvds but nothing worked. They all burn and play in my computer but not on any of my DVD players. Am I missing something here? I am extremely frustrated an have wasted many DVDs. HELP!

They are still in PAL format. Your computer can play that but your set top can't. You need to convert them to NTSC.

The way to convert the video to NTSC is as follows (although after all the time this takes you may think it better just to buy the NTSC version).

 

!. Choose DVD-video as the Format in the Video window.

2. Drag one of the VIDEO_TS folders to the Toast Video window. You will see each of the titles that are contained within that VIDEO_TS folder appear with thumbnail images in the Video window. Delete any titles you don't want on your new DVD.

3. Change the title names of the ones remaining to something that will make sense to you in the new menu that Toast will create. Click on the thumbnail image and drag the slider that appears to choose the frame you want as the menu button. Also choose a menu style and give your DVD a name other than My DVD.

4. Make sure NTSC is selected as your desired format in the Audio & Video tab of Toast Preferences.

5. You are now ready to either choose Save as Disc Image or click the burn button. Toast will ask if you really want to convert the PAL video to NTSC. Click okay.

6. A few hours later you will have either a disc image that you can burn to DVD using the Image File setting in the Copy window or you'll have your burned NTSC DVD.

The DVD -video format did not let me insert the whole VIDEO_TS file. The BUP and IFO files are in an unsupported format and cannot be imported. I tried to burn what was imported, the VOB files, and I did get at least something. I was able to watch the first episode although it froze up a few times on me. The rest of the dvd had the scenes mixed up. Is there any way to get the whole disc as it is on the original? There are 4 episodes on a disc.

Are you using Toast 10 or is it an earlier version?

Yes, I am sure. I just downloaded a few days ago.

The reason I asked is you report that dragging the VIDEO_TS folder to the Video window with DVD-video selected as the format results in Toast telling you that some files are unsupported (the .IFO and .BUP). That is something that happens in older versions of Toast. But when I do the above with Toast 10 it places the different titles from the DVD and gives me no message about the unsupported files. Those specific files are unsupported because they aren't video files. It's nice that Toast doesn't show that meaningless "unsupported files" message any longer.

 

As for the scenes being mixed up, you need to change the order that they are appearing in the Toast Video window by selecting and dragging them into the order you want. Apparently the company that authored the original DVD mixed up the order, maybe just to make things more difficult for people wanting to do what you're doing. You should be able to preview each title by clicking the Extract button to view it in the Toast Video Player. A quicker way is just to click on the thumbnail image in the Video window and slide the scroll bar so you can see many of the video's frames. That should give you the clue you need to know which title goes in what order.

 

As for the freezing you might try a different brand of DVD media or choose 8X as the maximum burn speed. That may or may not make a difference. Media quality can affect smooth playback.

A suggestion: For the price of the media you've wasted you could play your UK PAL DVDs on this:

http://www.amazon.com/Philips-DVP5140-Mult...0768&sr=8-1

 

Also look at the reviews. The most helpful one describes how to enable the player to handle all regions.

Sometimes it's best to have the right tool for the job.

I have wasted a lot of time and DVDs with the same issue - I have been creating DVDs of movies that I can play on my computer but not on any DVD player. I have tried various ways of recording but the discs are not recognized by the DVD players. The DVD players say "no disc" or "Playback feature may not be available on this disc".

 

Please help!

What settings did you use in Toast when you burned the DVDs? What brand and type of DVD media are you using? What brand of DVD player is refusing to play the discs?
