Toast Needs 2 Dvds To Copy Music Dvd


johnhenry

Question

I've copied many CDs using Toast 8's copy function and today for the first time tried to copy a region-free music DVD which I guess must be two layers. I got:

"Not enough space - needs 6.99GB and DVD is only 4.38GB." I then tried to import the two folders on the original DVD into both DivX and DVD-Video on Toast. I was able to drag in the Video folder, but when I dragged the Audio_TS folder I got: "an unsupported format and cannot be imported."

What are my options, if any? Would the latest update to Toast allow me to do this?

 

Also, any tricks to converting 192K FLAC files to AIFF to burn on a CD-R in Toast (and keeping them at 192K)?

The music DVD format cannot be split to two discs. Get a DVD+R DL disc for your copy.

 

AIFF is not compressed audio so there is no way to keep it in compressed size.

 

Thanks and greetings from Portland to Eugene!

I read about the differences between DL and normal DVDs and + vs. - and just ordered 3 of the DVD+R DLs for $6 at Amazon. Hadn't known about DL blanks.

On the FLAC, I had no intention of keeping it compressed. I have struggled with Max but just downloaded XLD which is reported to be better for Macs. I'm just hoping Toast will retain the 192K resolution after I burn the DVD-R; guess I'll find out.

Love Portland! Officemax often has sales on Verbatim DVD+R DL discs and those work very well. As for the FLAC files I misunderstood. The greatest resolution Toast supports for a Music DVD is 96 khz/24 bit (and some users have reported problems with Toast at this resolution). I don't think there is any DVD player that can decode more than that. You mention burning to a CD so you wouldn't get much music on a disc at this file size. If you are wanting an audio CD then it has to be 44.1 khz/16 bit or it won't play on a CD player. What are you planning to use to play the disc?

The Verbatim are what I ordered online. I have the Oppo Blu-ray universal player BDP-83SE. However, most DVD players today will play back DVD-Rs using either 96K/24 or 192K/24 audio files, as long as you don't have them set to downsample, or your multichannel preamp/receiver doesn't downsample them. HDTT, Soundkeepers, and some other labels offer such hi-res DVD-Rs - I think the 96K ones are the perfect answer for the ultimate two-channel fidelity. Don't know why more audiophile labels are not offering them. You should try some of the HDTT recordings - made with super gear mostly from pre-recorded commercial 2-track tapes of years ago! Here's an article I wrote on them: http://www.audaud.com/article.php?ArticleID=1443

 

Sorry to hear Toast can't do 192K but I can't hear it anyway. I also have some 88.2K and 176.4K audio files - now THOSE are a problem. (from M•A Recordings and Reference Recordings).
