  1. Ok thank you, now it makes more sense to me. So if it says cell 3 and 4, then it's at the moment the cell number changes, I got it =)
  2. When I click Preview Selected Cell, is there a way to know the exact moment where the layer break occurs, or is it just somewhere during the preview? I'm asking so that I can test it on different DVD players and know that I'm actually testing the right location (assuming there's no pause)
  3. I guess you probably got excited when you saw someone replied to your post after a year :-) I would have also thought someone would have created a simple program to create DDP discs since that seems to be widely accepted these days. I can't imagine it would be difficult for any programmer to implement. I'd pay for imgburn if it had that capability *hint hint to imgburn developer*
  4. A voice from the past, hey Neil, we communicated a long time ago on the GEAR forum. I was also hoping imgburn could output DDP discs since I got rid of my DLT machine a while ago. I had to edit an old project and I have the VIDEO_TS folder. Did you ever find any program that can create DDP discs besides GEAR?
  5. Oh yeah I see it's listed there too. Same thing as far as I know, layer0's size is the location of the layer break Thanks for the help!
  6. You mean under the layer information near the bottom right? This seems to be correct as it says Layer 0 Sectors: 2,067,520 and when I look at IFOedit and PGCedit, the layer break is shown at cell 38 which starts at 2,063,399 Disc Information: Status: Complete Erasable: No Sessions: 1 Sectors: 4,135,040 Size: 8,468,561,920 bytes Time: 918:55:65 (MM:SS:FF) TOC Information: Session 1... (LBA: 0) -> Track 01 (Mode 1, LBA: 0 - 4135039) -> LeadOut (LBA: 4135040) Physical Format Information (Last Recorded): Book Type: DVD-ROM Part Version: 1 Disc Size: 120mm Maximum Read Rate: 10.08Mbps Number of Layers: 2 Track Path: Opposite Track Path (OTP) Linear Density: 0.293 um/bit Track Density: 0.74 um/track First Physical Sector of Data Area: 196,608 Last Physical Sector of Data Area: 16,580,607 Last Physical Sector in Layer 0: 2,264,127 Layer Information: Layer 0 Sectors: 2,067,520 (50%) Layer 1 Sectors: 2,067,520 (50%)
  7. I just used PGCedit and IFOedit on both a replicated DVD itself, along with the files written to the hard drive by ImgBurn. Just had to edit this post. It looks like the layer break is where it should be at cell 38 which is pretty much halfway through the DVD. This means I should be able to import directly to GEAR without making any changes with PGCedit
  8. Hi all, I have a project in which I need to take a replicated DVD-9 disc, rip the contents of it to the hard drive, then use GEAR Pro Mastering to produce a DLT. Some questions: - If I use ImgBurn to write an ISO of the DVD to the hard drive, is the layer break preserved - What data is contained in the MDS file? (I did a search and read that DVD Decrypter stores layer break info in its MDS file) I was told that importing the project into GEAR would work fine as long as all references to the layer break are gone and they recommended that I use PGCEdit for this task. So I feel I should first determine if the layer break is preserved/untouched when writing an ISO to the hard drive from a DVD. Thanks!
  9. So if I understand correctly, ImgBurn only burns audio CDs via cue sheet files? In other words, if I wanted to just drag and drop a 30 minute wav file to be burned as an audio CD, I can't do it, correct?
  10. This concerns me. Here is my process: I author the DVD in Encore CS3. I then use the DVD disc build and create the VIDEO_TS folder on my hard drive. Then I use the ImgBurn to set the layer break and burn the DVD+R DL disc using this guide: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1780 This is all of course for creating my master to send to the replication plant. I've done 5 DVD-9 projects in this way, each with 1000 qty runs. I have had calls from customers about DVDs that won't play, but the number is small. I feel like I've "gotten away with it" after having read everything on Trai's website with regard to all the errors and hell that some people go through. So what I would like to know is if I fall into the instance Trai talks about in his article? In other words, where are these identifications as DVD Recordables made (in the files that Encore wrote, or during the actual disc burn somewhere) Thanks!
  11. Nope, I'm just talking about the extra content folder; you know, like if you want to include a PDF for example with the DVD, it goes in a folder of your choosing on the DVD. For your other question, yes, the AUDIO_TS was created (not by me) on the burned DL DVD. All is fine with the DVD now, it's playing in a cheap Cyberhome DVD player and I tested the section with the layer break in it and it worked flawlessly too.
  12. I think I just figured it out by using the calculator button. When I select the VIDEO_TS folder, it does NOT include the ROM content folder too. I know this because it tells me 2 folders, 22 files. When I select the folder one level up, it then says 3 folders, 41 files and there are 41 files total between the VIDEO_TS and ROM folders. I'm going to burn this way and see how it goes You might want to add this to your guide for others that are adding an extra content folder.
  13. Hello again! In your guide on burning dual layer DVDs, you say to navigate to the VIDEO_TS folder which has of course worked perfectly thus far. Now, however, I have to include another folder which includes some extra content. Should I still select the VIDEO_TS folder? (In other words, if I select VIDEO_TS, will it also include that other content folder?) Or in this case should I be selecting the folder that is one level up which includes both the VIDEO_TS and ROM folders?
  14. My DVD is finished! I went with the "average" choice and don't even see any pause at all at the layer break, so it was a definite success! Love ImgBurn, thanks again!
