    i Have image files of Movies/dvds on my Hard Drive that I want to burn onto DVD-r , they appear as a small grey disc icon in a folder, when I click on them they open in NERO and then when instructed to I press BURN/WRITE, however when NERO has finished the disc, does not play, either on my PC or a standalone player.
    What am I doing wrong, or have I got the principle of IMAGE files wrong altogether, I thought that an Image file can simply be burned using a suitable program (NERO or IMAGEBURN) and that would produce a watchable dvd.

  2. My guess is you wrote the file to the disc as a file, not as a disc image. Use ImgBurn and select Write Image File To Disc, from the Mode -> Ez-Mode Picker.

    Thats what I am doing......clicking onto WRITE IMAGE FILE TO DISC, then burning but the DVD that is created doesnt run, I have also opened the "IMAGE" using WINISO and it says the image is unsupported, however WINISO is a program I have never used before so I could be on the wrong thing altogether

    Is there any way I can use another program, to convert these images I have to the VIDEO_TS files that I am used to burning.

    Open those .ISOs with WinRAR or 7-Zip, and check whether they actually contain a VIDEO_TS structure.

    IIRC, WinIso does not support UDF 2.5/2.6

    Sorry to sound stupid (I am really) I have WINRAR installed but when i right click and open with WINRAR it reports that it is an unknown or damaged file.....Could this be the problem, that it is infact a dmaged file

    Yes. You could try mounting it as a virtual drive with WinCDEmu or Daemon Tools. Then browsing with Explorer.

    It depends. The OLD versions of WinRAR didn't support the Blu-Ray/AVCHD filesystem (UDF 2.5).
    Current builds are 5.xx, mine is 4.11.
