View Full Version : IFO Edit and NERO

13th December 2002, 19:22
Howdy all-

I have been attempting unsuccessfully to back-up a DVD-9 to DVD-5 using the guides on this site. After splitting the files and correcting the VOBU pointers and VTS sectors, when I attempt to burn using Nero 5.5, I receive an error message, "file allocation failed. DVD may be unplayable, do you want to continue?"

I read a related post by Derrow indicating that IFO has a bug and sometimes mis-lables the file length of VTS_01_0. I have attempted to apply the suggested work around unsuccessfully. Also, as it relates to Derrow's post, I get this message sometimes on D2 wondering if it is related. To date I have not been able to get both DVDs playable, all attempts have yielded only 1 playable DVD, sometimes D1, sometimes D2. My system info is as follows:

IFO Edit 0.95
Windows XP Professional - fully updated
Nero 5.5 - with most recent update
Pioneer A104 DVD-R w/firmware 1.33

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. DOOM9 ROCKS!!

Did you try creating an image with IMGTOOL and then burning?

Imgtools has always worked for me when Nero gives me reallocation errors. Just make sure that "reallocate VIDEO_TS structure" checkbox is unchecked. It's slower than regular Nero but at least you won't have a coaster to put your beer on.

Just my opinion, I do have 0.95 on my computer but I always use 0.91 for splits as I read in an old thread that 0.95 doesn't do a better job at splits. I've done many DVDs this way.
