View Full Version : Using VOB Instant CD+DVD 6

21st March 2002, 21:10
I am trying to burn Derrow Test files to see if my DVD will play in my set top box. I have a Panasonic LF-D311 which came with my Gateway 700XL. My DVD player is a Sony DVP-NS 700 which is DVD-R compatible.
I have looked at Derrow's tutorial and the one on the highvid.com website and still am not sure of certain things.
Which Disc type should I choose (after burning the disc to my HD with Smart Ripper or DVD Decypter : 1) Data disc or 2)UDF Video DVD or 3)UDF Video DVD Image or 4) Data disc (UDF)?

Also under "Select type & size of disc" the only options that come up are "DVD-RAM" or "DVD". I presume I should use "DVD". The program recognizes my burner and the media. Should I check the box below labeled "Use type and size of an inserted disc" instead?

On the volume properties do we need to check the "All files * folders on the disc will have the same date" This is not checked in Derrow's tutorial but is checked in the Highvid tutorial. Should I then write the disc or just "close the wizard" and Right click the project as shown in the Highvid tutorial? When I try this I do not get all of the properties tabs that appear in theor tutorial i.e., filesystems, boot disc, dates, volume info- only the extended menu. They have another step which tells you to select ISO 9660, UDF 1.02 and same date in the filesytems tab. I do not get this with my media and/or program?

Please help.

Use option #2, the UDF DVD Video under Instant Write, choose the dvd recorder and uncheck the Joilet option and make sure you use 1.02 UDF. Click write add your files, AUDIO_TS & VIDEO_TS to the project and after about 60 minutes, you will have a perfect DVD ready to play in your stand alone player.

Is that under InstantWrite or under InstantDisc?

InstantDisc! Make sure you have the latest version of the software and choose UDF DVD Video.
