Video_ts And Data Files On Same Dvd

Question

Is it possible to burn a DVD with both Video content AND data files on the same disc. For example, I would like to be able to have someone view a short video on a set top DVD player from a DVD I burn AND THEN be able to insert that same DVD into their computer to access excel, illustrator, jpeg or similar files referred to in the video they just watched. If so how can I do that and/or where can I get support material on that issue.

Yes. If you already have the VIDEO_TS folder just add it and the data content to the Data window using the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting.

 

If you need Toast to create the VIDEO_TS folder and add the data content set everything up for the video using the DVD video setting in the Copy window, and everything for the data content in the Data window with DVD-Rom (UDF) as the format. Be sure to give the data side the same disc name as the video side. Click the More button in the Video window and click the Disc tab in the window that appears. Put a check mark next to Add Data Content. Note: if you Save as Disc Image the data content will not be burned along with the video to the DVD when using the Image File setting in the Copy window.

Tsantee,

 

Every time someone asks about adding additional DVD-ROM data to a video DVD, you have been providing those same instructions. Please stop telling people to use DVD-Rom (UDF). The correct procedure should be as follows:

 

On your hard drive, create a folder with the same name that you would like to give the DVD. In this folder, place the VIDEO_TS folder. Then copy the additional data files or folders that you want to include, but do not place the extra items in the VIDEO_TS folder. So if you want the finished DVD to be named DVD Movie, the folder would look like:

 

DVD Movie

>VIDEO_TS

>any extra items

 

In Toast, choose the Video category and click "VIDEO_TS Folders". Then click Add, navigate to the folder structure you just created, and add the VIDEO_TS folder. Then click the Options button. Next to Video, choose Custom. Then enable the "Include DVD-Rom Content" checkbox and click OK. This will allow you to burn a video DVD along with the extra data. Compression can optionally be enabled to make the VIDEO_TS folder fit on a single layer DVD. You can't do compression with "DVD-Rom (UDF)".

 

However, there is one slight issue. The "Include DVD-Rom Content" checkbox does not work correctly in Toast 9, Toast 10, or Popcorn 3!! Despite checking the box in all these programs, the extra data files are not burned to the DVD. The exact same feature works correctly in Popcorn 2, so there is obviously a bug in Toast 9, Toast 10, and Popcorn 3.

 

Although I have submitted numerous tickets, Roxio's tech support has been completely useless. They refuse to acknowledge the issue or to even understand the problem. Instead, they keep posting canned, generic responses which have nothing to do with the original issue at all.

 

Continually telling people to use DVD-Rom (UDF) is not going to fix the issue. If you really want to help people add DVD-ROM data to a video DVD, then start demanding Roxio to fix the "Include DVD-Rom Content" option instead of continuing to post your inaccurate instructions.
