.iso with DVD+R dual-layer?

Recommended Posts

This is a brother's first time at the forum... hi all.

 

I have a 7.06 GB .iso, so I decided to use DVD+R dual-layer (Maxell).

 

I've heard the I should use .mds instead of .iso for dual-layer discs.

Running ImgBurn with the .iso ...

 

"Select Layer Break position". I select an option (what difference would the options make in the viewing?).

 

What does "Seamless" mean?

"You should only enable this option if you know that your player does not need the layer break-cell to be marked as non-seamless".

 

I don't know what my player (standard DVD player) can handle, but it's nearly a decade old...

 

Is that everything I need to consider?

Or should I still change to .mds?

 

Thank you very much.

 

A Brother

If it has a .mds file created from the source disc (if there's one) then you should use it. As for the layerbreak the star colour should tell you which one(s) is(are) better, and if they're all average, use the Preview button to select a scene where a small pause wouldn't be noticed (e.g. not in the middle of a car chase ;) ).

 

As for seamless you'd have to burn one disc with it enabled and one with it disabled and test on your DVD player in order to find out if it supports seamless layerbreak or not :unsure:
