So you're using the Image File setting in the Toast Convert window and chose the iPad conversion preset. Is that correct? You say the conversion stops after completing about 40 minutes of the video. What happens at that point? Was the original DVD created with a standalone DVD recorder or a DVD camcorder?

So it progresses to around 20 - 40 minutes of recording, you can view the converted file but its only 1/3 - 1/4 of the total movie which it has converted. It simply says completed.

 

The iso file was created from a DVD copy of the original movie.

I don't know what the problem is but it could be there is a dropped frame of timecode break that is causing Toast to believe the video ended at that point. The workaround I suggest is getting MPEG Streamclip which is freeware but requires Apple's $20 QuickTime MPEG2 Playback Component. Mount the .iso (using Toast's Image File setting in the Copy window) and then open the VIDEO_TS folder using MPEG Streamclip. Streamclip has a fast command to fix timecode breaks. It also can do the conversion for playing on the iPad, or you can Export as MPEG and drag the resulting MPEG video file to Toast's Convert window.

Never had a problem copying DVDs until today. Message keeps coming up that the video is damaged. Except there's no damage that shows when you play the DVD. Both audio and video are excellent until I click "copy" and I get that same window. I've dragged both audio and video into Toast Titanium 11 (as I always have) and get that message.

 

Can anyone speculate on what the problem might be?

I don't know why you'd get that message in the Copy window. Toast doesn't even care if its a video DVD or a data DVD so why would it comment on the video? Did it say there was a problem reading the disc or did it refer to the video?

 

There are a couple workarounds. One is to choose DVD-Rom (UDF) as the format in the Toast Data window and drag in the VIDEO_TS folder from the DVD. Then choose Save as Disc Image. If that completes okay then burn the resulting .toast disc image using the Image File setting the Copy window. Another workaround is basically the same but starting with copying the VIDEO_TS folder to the desktop, ejecting the disc when the copying is done and use that in the data window or using the VIDEO_TS folder setting in the Video window to burn your DVD.

Thanks, Digital Guru, I think you've earned that tag. I'm dying to know if your suggestion works and will try it ASAP. In the meantime though, I gave the problem DVD (which was itself a copy made by someone else) to a friend to see if he might be able to copy it. He got the same message (that the video was damaged).

I talked with the person who made the copy (In England, but it's not a regional problem) and he had copied it from a download. It plays perfectly, which is what puzzles me.

 

Will let you know if my friend is able to copy it. I've also forwarded your suggestion to him, should he need your Guru vibes.
