Problem Creating A Dl Dvd From A .iso & .dvd File

Big Blue


I am new to Toast and Mac. I have been an IMG burn user for a long time. When making a backup and burning the DL DVD on a PC using IMG Burn you just select your files which come up together one as a .iso file and the other as a .dvd file. With image burn you select the .dvd file and click burn image to disk which in turn tells IMGBurn how to burn the DL DVD and it burns a working backup disk. The problem I am having is choosing the .dvd file is not an option with toast I can only choose the .iso file and that does not burn the image correctly. I have wasted quite a few dvd's at this point and I am very frustrated. Am I missing something? Do I have to change something like the .dvd extension?

My understanding is an .iso file is a disc image. Using the Image File setting in the Copy window you should burn the .iso file to DVD. I've not heard of a .dvd file. To avoid wasting another disc choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. When that is finished control-click on the resulting .toast file and choose Mount It from the contextual menu. If you created a valid video DVD disc image that should launch DVD Player so you can view it on your Mac. You also can use Mount It to mount the .iso file to see if it also plays with DVD Player.
