Cannot Create Video Dvd Playable On Standalone Dvd Player

Question

I have a video DVD recorded by a Chinese theater in China of a concert I performed in Shenzhen there. It, and any copy I make from it using Roxio NXT Pro, plays fine on my computer but will not play in any standalone DVD player I've tried. Since I've made a copy which was guaranteed to be NTSC format I'm suspecting a region code problem, but am not sure that is the problem. I'm using Roxio NXT Pro to create copies of this DVD for my orchestra members, but I can't figure out how to make a copy that plays on a standalone DVD player. I've tried copying the original and also making an image and working from that. Can someone suggest a way to get Roxio to produce a video DVD playable on a standalone DVD player?

What are the files on the original DVD?

 

Video files have to be authored into compliant DVD Video for it to play on a settop DVD player.

 

A authored DVD is made in MY DVD, Roxio burns region free disc's. The files on a authored DVD will have ifo, bup, and vob files.

OK, I used Roxio to first create an image of the original DVD from tthe Chinese theater and then I copied the image to another blank DVD. The files on that DVD are in 3 folders: AUDIO_TS, ULEADDMF and VIDEO_TS. The VIDEO_TS folder contains VIDEO_TS.BUP, VTS_01.BUP, VIDEO_TS.IFO, VTS_01.IFO, VTS_01_1.VOB, VTS_01_2.VOB, VTS_01_3.VOB, VTS_01_4.VOB. The ULEADDMF folder contains DMF2.dwz and the AUDIO_TS folder is empty. There is a desktop file in the root directory; its contents are:

 

[.ShellClassInfo]

LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21815

 

I am glad to know that Roxio produces region free DVDs. Is that the reason they don't play on a DVD player? Or is there something wrong with one of the files on my DVD that I've listed above that is the problem? Any ideas on how to fix the DVD or the image so it will play on a DVD player? I've tried video capture software to get around the problem, but the results are less than spectacular to say the least.

 

Also, you tell me to remove my email address on my original post; how can I do that?

What application in Creator NXT did you use to make the image file?

 

Why would you use ULEAD to copy the image file to a DVD Disc?

 

What does that mean "copy the image file to a DVD Disc"?

 

Compliant DVD video needs to be authored, My DVD does that for you.

Well, we still aren't communicating but I'm sure it is because of my ignorance in the area of video DVD creation which I am new at. I think I understand from your reply that the ultimate goal is to create an authored DVD using the MyDVD program and that will play on a standalone DVD player. I have done this in the past form a movie file and it works but I have never done it from a video DVD before. I cannot see how MyDVD can pull the video off of a video DVD to author it -- you have to already have a movie file to work with; MyDVD will author (convert) a movie file or it will copy a DVD, but it will not convert a video DVD as far as I can fathom it.

 

To answer some of your questions. I used Roxio Create Disc Image to create my image file, DVD Video.gi. When I use the Roxio Burn Disc Image to copy the image fiel to a blank DVD I end up with the folders and files listed in my previous reply above. I did not use ULEAD to to do anything; I don't even know what ULEAD is.

 

So let's go back to square one. What I have is the orignal video DVD from my China concert. What I need to do, if I understand you, is to somehow create an authored video DVD from that orignal Chinese video DVD using MyDVD, but I don't see any way that MyDVD will let me do it. Roxio is so complex it is difficult to see a path from A to Z. What are the exact steps to use Roxio Creator NXT Pro to convert the original video DVD to a Roxio authored video DVD?
