    MPEG-2 7.09gig file to DL

    Yes layer break. I am burning this disk from an ISO created by DVDstyler in Burndcc 64 and it just does it. Now I cannot tell technically how it does it but there are no such problem as I encounter in IngBurn the quality is excellent no menu to hinder me and a full 16.9 screen. I have always used ImgBurn in conjunction with Roxio with no problems until NXT5 I guess if I was just doing a 60 minute disk there would be no problem but you cannot produce a DL disk without menu in Roxio so as of now I will only be using roxio to edit and render my files. Any ideas on a better editing programme :-) As I almost always produced DVD's that run for over an hour and I have used roxio since 2011 they have now really cocked this programme up

    I think it was a problem of my own knowledge or I should say lack of. A person from the DVDstyler forum helped me to realise a good burn. One point is the ISO that I made in DVDstyler and resulting burn to DVD in Burndcc I tried to burn the ISO to disk in Imgburn would not work again I dont really know why other than the fact that a box telling that a split point could not be found

    Lightning. You advised me to have a go at using DVDstyler and I am happy to say that I have a fine quality full screen DL ISO that has burnt to a very nice disk after two attempts . The first attempt was a good quality clear image but the screen with two bars squashed the figures (actors) a bit and did not look right, something to do with the aspect ratio that I got wrong (like most other things) but with help and advice from the DVDstyler forum on the next attempt that was all corrected so it is obviously true to say that with an understanding of the terminology and configuration settings it is not so painful. I thank yourself, Dbminter and Manolito from DVDstyler forum for your patience help and understanding and after 7 trashed DL disks I not only have a viable DL disk but I also have a better understanding of what to do to achieve a successful outcome Johnnie

    It is a little bit difficult to think what might be the problem. The dvd played ok on my PC but was blank to my DVD player. I am thinking it might be easier for me if I start at the beginning and re-render the whole thing right from roxio and author it somewhere else and burn somewhere different again

    well that was a wasted 6hrs the result it won't play on my DVD but will on my PC I rendered this file to play on ALL devices to MPEG-2 in roxio and used that file to burn in DVDstyler SO have I missed something like can DVDstyler change where this file is compatible? Iwill try again but I need to know what has happened because its a long time to waste. I read and followed the guides but I cant see what I must have missed

    Now I am fearful that something is not quite right 2.5 hours in and no movement. Nothing to say whether its working or not just a screen that says header.... generate DVD Summery prepare Generating menu 1 of 1...... (I selected no template) ... is there a menu ???? Transcode video 1 of 1 Encoding Mode Copy progress bar has not moved from its starting point (about 2.5 inches in) hold fire there is movement in the details frame marker counter is moving up so there may be life AKA maybe Friday morning :-)

    Progress I set to write X2 it says it could take hours. Well it's certainly taking that because the progress bar hasn't even moved yet 1.5 hours in

    Thanks for the advice. I will have a go at DVDstyler with my file and I will let you know the results or at least how I get on... as an edit to this-: I have to read the help files first not to sure on a couple of the items to select so it might take a little while but with a quick look it seems it does the same i.e. file selected shows 106/132 and it says good quality for uo to126 ,mins as I say I will be back

    Thank Thank's a lot for your input on this thread. I think I get the gist of it ALMOST at least enough to proceed but it leaves me with one question. Having a file rendered in roxio the MPEG-2 .... can I get this .mpg file into ImgBurn as it is to either make an ISO or a disk? I am grateful to you two guys for your help

    Not being a very technical person and someone who only makes a few films a year I have been educated somewhat of the last few days. My past knowledge was that anything over 60 minutes needs to go onto a DL disk but if what I have found out is true then that is not necessary the case or at least that is what it seems. It was suggested on here that a choice could be Freemake which I downloaded and used to burn a 146minute 7.09 GIB file so I did with a DL disk and that seemed to work fine acceptable at least but I was amazed that file on disk was only 2.9 GIB so I thought Mmm still in trouble BUT I thought ok I will see what SL disk looks like and it seems exactly the same. I am really missing something here? does this programme actually convert the file down with no loss of quality because where I have been thinking I need DL I am now thinking do I??? Is this why ImgBurn was telling me DL not required fit easy onto a SL disk being a result of MPEG 2

    Thank you for all the info. LOL! this is like a merry go round but I guess I will get there in the end. Freemake looks interesting and probably the easiest to use and will suffice as long as I can get a full good quality un compressed file. I like ImgBurn and it is my preference to use to burn so just as soon as I can get a conversion of the full value 7.09 gig onto a ISO for DL disk that is where I shall burn. Of course with such a big file the penalty is the time it takes to try all the options but as long as I get there it's not a problem. It looks to me that the only use Roxio has for me now is to edit my videos and render to MPEG-2. At least I now have options. Latest update:: just done an iso of my file selected PAL.... DL disk....good quality then converted went to imgburn selected the file in write image file to disk. looked for break put dual layer into drive and ImgBurn tells me that I dont need a DL it will fit on a DVD+R/RW just fine which means my file has been compressed nightmare

    Yes to your first question and yes to MPEG-2 = .mpg OK my problem I have a file that is 106 minutes 7.09 gig long and I need to convert this file to file folder VIDEO TS or ISO so that it stays the same size for burning i.e. without compression to maintain quality whichever is the easiest. As a disk is 4.7 gig or 60 minutes I will need to put this onto a Dual Layer disk 8.5 gig 120 minutes. It seems to me that whatever programme I use to get it to a file ready to burn they reduce the size of the file to fit a 4.7 gig. so I need a conversion that maintains the original size.
