Question

Hi,

 

I am trying to save an iso image to my computer, and have doneso 3 time, but each time I try and create DVDs with these it says it will not fit (the iso is too large) when I went back into MyDVD and into the Burn Disk option, I saw next to "save as iso" there is an option for Target Media and it says +DL, the problem is, it is greyed out and can not be changed.

 

Please help and tell me how I can change this

The "Target Media option is only enabled if you are burning to DL DVDs, are you? If yes, did you select the 8.5 DVD size?

 

How long in time is your video? If your iso file is larger then what a 4.7GB DVD can holde it is propably because your video is longer then 60 minutes. A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at the best (HQ) quality setting. Any longer and the video has to be compressed by using one of the other quality settings which will of course reduce you video quality. I would recommend using RW DVDs and see if you are happy with the quality from a lower quality setting.

I am not burning to DVD DL Disks, my video is about 1 hour 37 Minutes, but when I burned directly to DVD it uses "size to fit" and that works, but I would like to create an image file that can be used on a standard DVD+R disk, It does have a "target disk size" but it wont let me change the disk, it only says +DL and it is grayed out, how can I "UN-GRAY" it so I can change it (it does have an arrow next to it so it looks like it should be able to be changed)

As I said that only enabled when your are burning to DL DVD.

"Fit-to-disc" is the worst quality you can select.

Sorry for Not understanding, does that mean there is no way to make an iso image of a large video (over 1 hour) that will fit on a regular DVD, without burning the DVD first and then making an iso from the DVD.

 

Also, if you don't mind me asking off topic, I started playing my DVD and it the voice and video were off sync, is there anyway to fix that using roxio?

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Yes, actually there is a workaround to create an iso image file (or a Video_Ts folder set) for video over 60 minutes that can then be burned to fit on a standard 4.7GB DVD. Unfortunately I no longer have C2009 installed so I can't give you the exact procedure. Hopefully one of the users can jump in and post the correct method. What it involves is creating the iso or Video_TS first for the overside video and then using another program from C2009 to burn the DVD. During the burn process the oversize video will be transcoded to fit on the standard DVD. While this method also involves compression, the quality of video seems to be much better then from any of the myDVD quality settings.

 

As to your sync problem, that may be due to the Fit-to-disc option if you used that. As I said , that option is useless.

Now another problem, when I start Cineplayer, my computer just restarts, i only have 2GB installed on my computer and its running Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 (2.50 Ghz), could that be the problem? or should I just re-install the software.

 

Please help me

Try doing this and then running a Windows repair on the program. Make sure you keep your anti-virus during the install.

Should I uninstall Roxio, THEN do what it says to do in the article posted, then Re-install Roxio?, or just do what it says in the article and then just re-install Roxio.

 

Thanks

 

Nathan

 

Perhaps my wording confused you. The first thing to do is to updat eyour computer and then do a REPAIR on the program. The old fashioned kind Windows, Add or Remove Programs, repair.
