Adding Chapters to Existing DVD


secretsanta

Question

I have a DVD which recorded off the TV. Basically 8 hours of programmes in one chapter. I would like to import it and add a menu and chapters to make the different programmes within 8 hours accessible and identified. I have tried it using mydvd in roxio creator 2009. When I try to burn the edited project it says it needs a 12 gig disk. How can this be when the original disk was only 4 gig? Can someone tell me how to achieve what I want?

 

Thanks.

Thanks for this. It leaves the question though, why can my stand alone DVD recorder store 8 hours and the Roxio software not do this? Surely there must be a way?

 

Your video recorder did not create a standard DVD in the required format. Does the DVD have a Video_TS folder containing a number of files with extensions ifo, bup and vob? If not then you don't have a proper video DVD but only a "data" disc which contains files in a format which may play on some DVD players.

It does have the format you describe.

There are actually a few ways to do it…

 

This is one – Here

 

Give that a try but if it bogs your PC down, post back and we will outline Plan B :lol:

 

The reason it won't fit is that Video is based on time... Here are the typical maximums, but when you get into the 2 hour+, I don't even want to look at them.

 

4.7Gb:

HQ = 1:06

SP = 1:37

LP = 2:22

ELP = 3:04

 

8.5 Gb:

HQ = 2:00

SP = 2:57

LP = 4:19

ELP = 5:35
