MDS File

Recommended Posts

HI Guys, Havent been on the forum for a while.

 

 

Just used imgburn today to produce an ISO from a DVD file.

 

It appears to produce the ISO file which I was expecting but also posted an MDS file.

 

 

Do I need both now?

 

 

cheers

It would have made it for 1 of 2 reasons...

 

1. The disc was under 1GB - where the MDS is then used to make DAEMON Tools emulate a DVD-ROM rather than a CD-ROM when you mount it.

2. The disc was double layer - where the MDS is then used to preserve the layer break position.

 

If it's 1 in your case and you have no intention of mounting it in DT, no you probably don't need it.

If it's 2 then you should keep hold of it.
