    Hello everyone,

    I have created an Encore project on my PC which I need to burn on a DL DVD. My PC does not have a DL DVD burner so I copied the VIDEO_TS file which Encore created over to my MAC. I have then proceeded to convert the VIDEO_TS folder to a .cdr using Disc Utility. I can burn the resulting .cdr to DL DVD but it will not play on a dvd player or my MAC.

    Please help, I'm running out of discs!!

    Thanks,

    Cambo

    I know nothing about MAC but....cdr implies you created a CD image. A CD is not a DVD.

    The .cdr files that Disk Utility writes are disk images for DVD/CD-master, that is: some meta data from the source disk is included as well. This can be useful for making bootable discs, but it is not the disk image format for DVD-Video that you seek. It doesn't let you choose a file system. Thus your disk image won't have the UDF 1.02 file system that DVD-Video requires. You’ll need a different tool to create UDF disk images.
    DVD Imager or JIsoX can do that.

    I’m surprised you didn't use Encore to create a disk image for you.

  4. If you have Toast, it can burn the VIDEO_TS folder without any problems.

    Exactly. Go back to your PC and use Encore or Imgburn to create an .iso file and then burn that from your mac to your disk.

    I'm not guaranteeing that this will happen on a Mac, but I'll share my personal experience. I have an iMac that is about 5 years old and has some kind of Optiarc burner drive in. NOTHING can burn a DL disc without failing. NOTHING. Not Burn. Not ImgBurn under a Windows VM. Not even Mac's own provided burning program. I only use high quality Verbatim DVD+R DL discs too, so it's not my discs. After making coasters will everything I tried, I have never again attempted to burn a DL disc on my iMac. If you have similar problems, I know of no solution except "use another box".
