What To Use? pgcedit, Folder2iso or IMGTOOL CLASSIC

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Not used ImgBurn yet - but stumbled upon this site whilst looking for best and easiest way to burn a DL DVD-R.

 

I understand lightening's nice app can only burn an iso (and I will in future rip DVDs as an iso). BUT for the time being I have my DVD9 film in VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders.

 

After looking through the posts on this forum I have seen no less than THREE different apps mentioned to convert my 'folders' into a suitable .iso

 

Which one of these three is recommended and is most likely to work with ImgBurn?

 

I have a pioneer 110D drive and Verbatim DL DVD-Rs

 

Oh and btw is ImgBurn likely to burn DVD folders in the future?

 

Thanks.

 

MBB

 

 

PS - Glad to see your still 'out n about' helping the world Lightning UK! :wub:

if i compress a film with dvd shrink , i usually let it make the iso .

if i use dvd rebuilder then i use imgtool by coujo to build the iso.

 

i'm sure there will be other input :)

folder 2 iso would not be suited to this task, as you wil only end up with a dvd rom iso that when burnt, would probably not play in your dvd player, unless your dvd player has a folder option and can play unauthored dvds, though technically they have been authored, but your dvd player would have to be able to play from folders as a couple of mine can. So your best bet would be to use either what cornholio7 or l8nights said

looks like imgtool is the best then.

 

I'll have a proper look when everyone's in bed tonight.

 

Thanks chaps :D

 

btw is there a FAQ oro guide for imgtool - or is it really easy to use?

 

 

cheers

PgcEdit uses the same engine (mkisofs) as ImgToolClassic - which IMHO has always been the best way to go.

 

PgcEdit enables you to leave 32k gaps between small titlesets, which can be a benefit if the IFO gets damaged.
