    filter driver load order

    if imgburn didn't have that load filter option, then i never would of posted in this forum. mayb your reply was either better not said, or put into the do you have any else to discuss about forum. i think mab, just mab, that's where the title newbie comes into play. thousands already know this is a great program, including myself, no need for promotion. it speaks for itself. thnx. for the tip though it was helpful.

    build mode: folders;files

    thnx lightning. i got it. i have to create it just like that and in that path on the hard drive. it went smooth w/out any prompts. i just have 2 adjust the settings on my back-up proggies so that the output, and target files are sent to the c hard drive w/the folder i created.

    i still don't really get the build mode function. what happens most of the time is it copies the folder also and when i go play it on my dvd player the folder shows up and i have to open it up there also in order to watch the movie. a couple of times i was able to put the copy straight in my dvd player and the movie would start playing w/out showing the folder. what's the correct way to use build mode so as not to copy the folder and just get the movie to show up and then play in my dvd player? yes i understand that imgburn burns as is, so help me in build mode to make an .iso that will contain the video files alone w/out the folder? thnx. that pop up that says whether or not the folder is the root source also throws me off. in either case i usually end up copying some folder anyway.

    hi moondogger. i know that's why lightning suggests that tip. i just tried adding the folder w/the name on it, and it burned it, but it burned the folder also. that's why i didn't want 2 follow what donta suggested by clicking on yes when the pop-up window shows up asking about the root folder. etc... i've changed the setting on my proggie, and now it's a lil better to locate, and faster, the VIDEO_TS folder w/the files. otherwise i'd have to open up about 3 subfolders 2 get it. do you guys understand what i mean about creating that folder as suggested by lightning the way he explains it. just creating a new folder w/a name gives it an audio, and when backing up 2 it a VIDEO_TS folder. the folder w/in the folder that he suggests will only result in several more VIDEO_TS folders, of which 1 will only have the files. the others would b empty, and would have 2 b deleted causing even more time. i'm just curious about why lightning suggests that whole folder w/in the folder thing. every pc, or back-up proggie will automatically create a VIDEO_TS folder. is lightning referring to some other kind of video work? i don't think he is, but maybe it's so. the main thing w/build mode is the VIDEO_TS folder itself. once you choose that folder that's all that's needed. it'll automatically do what lightning suggests, give the name of the label 4 u. everything else is just going to cause more confusion. drag, selecting yes, etc...etc... most if not all of us have back-up proggies. go ahead and create that folder w/in the folder and you'll see what i mean. you'll get exactly what i've described. additional video_ts folders. i'm not going 2 go bonkers over the guide. i've read it several times and followed it to the tee. same results every time. additional video_ts folders not needed.

    hi volvo. i'm using dvdf...hd to make my back-ups. it has a predestined folder 4 mo..e only. now this is fine, but i have to open up my documents, then my name's documents, then dvdf..b hd, then, the mo..e only folder, then click on the VIDEO_TS folder. understand now. maybe i can bypass this. all i know is that even when i create a new folder, it'll go under this heading and the same path. i still don't understand why in lightning's guide he suggests to create a folder in a path, one inside that 1 w/the name, and 1 inside that one which is the VIDEO_TS folder. he then says to save the files to the VIDEO_TS folder. well it does that automatically anyway, and you don't have to create folders w/in folders because once you just create a folder and name it, whether on your hard drive etc... it automatically creates the audio, and VIDEO_TS folders. saving it in the VIDEO_TS folder like he suggests in his guide only ends up making another VIDEO_TS folder in that 1. somewhere here i don't get why he suggests that whole set up. it does work when you select the VIDEO_TS folder, and then click build in device mode so that imgburn will name your label 4 u. that saves time like lightning suggests, and i like that. i just don't get the folder w/in the folder thing. it has nothing to do w/DL either. if you have any suggestion on this, or lightning's guide it's greatly appreciated as always.

    i'm going to check the proggie over 4 a change in that setting. though i'm not looking to make an iso. i'm looking to burn str8 to dvd w/device output. making an iso is just more time, and like lightning suggested there's no difference in quality, or the time it takes to burn in build mode using device output.

    donta it don't matter whether it's single layer, or not. besides i like setting it to file set because then i have more options for anything else. like i mentioned b4 i could use their target folder. it justs has to b open a couple of times 4 the VIDEO_TS folder. also it'll have their preselected name which is not too much of a big deal, but if i could use my own named folder i'd like 2 do so.

    build mode: folders;files

    donta i know all about that. you guys r missing the point about the pre-selected folder my program has. also i'm talking about burning in build mode w/device, not creating an iso. that's why lightning put out that guide bcause this can bcome confusing even to some of us more advanced in digital video. when you select the VIDEO_TS folder in ur destination folder like lightning suggests you won't get any pop-up windows. that's y he has that tip there. i just need some suggestion how i could create a folder independent of the 1 my program has as its target. otherwise it'll show up under my folder plus under the program's target destination. i'm trying 2 keep within the rules of the forum, if you get what i mean. it doesn't matter though bcause it'll happen regardless w/my program.

    hi volvo. i'm trying to eliminate having to go through all that hassle of deleting the extra VIDEO_TS folders. and just picking the name of the folder i don't think will burn the files just the folder w/its name which is empty. i think. i'm not sure. that use to happen to me b4, but i'm not sure if it was through adding files, or browsing the folder option. that's why i think lightning suggested choosing the VIDEO_TS folder when adding it to the source window. the program i use automatically has a name for the back-up folder, and i think that's the issue. i just want to create 1 w/a different name because then it'll b quicker 4 me to select the VIDEO_TS folder in it and let imgburn add it and then burn in build mode using output 2 device. i just need some suggestion how i could create my own folder like lightning suggests, and not have the program i use throw the files into their preset destination folder. it'll save me some time doing that. i don't like having to search for folders w/in folders. 1 yes like the VIDEO_TS folder w/in my back-up folder's name, but not another 1 within that one, or vice versa.

    hi lightning. i created that folder structure you suggested in your guide, and what happens is when i back-up the files to that video_ts folder, it creates another video_ts folder w/in that one automatically. also the program i use to back-up my video files already has a folder for them, and that creates a video_ts folder also. do i have to pick a totally different place on my pc to store the video files w/ just w/just its name, and when it backs up the video just pick the video_ts folder it creates automatically, and let imgburn do the rest? otherwise i get 2, even 3 video_ts folders. yes, i did try the device method and it's faster. eliminates having to create an iso and then burning.

    hi lightning. excuse the delay in posting my results. does writing directly to disc using build mode w/device as per your guide take longer than building an iso, and then burning? also does it take away from the quality of the burn when you write directly to disc using this method? i've been building to an iso image, and then burning. everything's fine. i just want to know a different take on this.
  14. hi i recently tried adding different ibf/vob files together to create a new copy of mixed video files from different sources. i created a video_ts folder in my desktop. i then opened up different sources i had copied and added files from each to the folder. it goes well, except it won't accept the same numbered files in the same folder, even though the file is a totally different one. if you could find a way to make these files co-exist in the same video_ts folder to then build or burn w/imgburn that would be awesome. i guess you would have to manipulate imgburn so that it won't reject same numbered files w/different footage.

    good looking out. btw i heard, probably posted by you or some of the other fellas that the download of a new version of dvd shrink was a fraud and not related at all to the original dvd shrink 3.2. is that correct?

    thnx blutach. i have to study shrink and all its goodies also. takes some time. i never checked out the help guide to shrink. does it have one or do i have to go to another forum to study all its feautures. i came across imgburn through dvf, and that was through the shrink guide that directs you to doom's site, etc..etc.. i don't want to break any of the rules, and discuss topics not related to imgburn. pm me w/some suggestions as to where i could go to see all that shrink has to offer. i know how to reauthor 1 flic. can i mix n match several flics together w/reauthoring from shrink? i let go of nero. too much of a resource hog.

    thnx. lightning. i've been playing around w/imgburn learning more of it's options through the guides. it takes a lil time and effort to maximize its potential, but it's well worth it.

    hi lightning. just curious as i was able to build n burn a video disc, but the files have to be a different number. don't matter the content. figure i could make a compilation of some videos i have. i understand about imgburn not being an editing or authoring tool. that build mode is excellent though once you get it down pact.

    files or folders in build mode:

    lighting, excuse the delay in responding w/results. it took a bit, but now i understand build mode better and have been using it almost extensively for all my burning. i'm learning queue now. i'll post any ? if necessary, which will most likely be the case. thnx for your help. always appreciated. lightning, just reporting. i followed your guide on creating the folders w/in the folders and now eveything's much simpler just like you said. i could use it to build or burn directly to disc. takes some time to learn all the goodies imgburn has to offer, but it's worth it.
  21. hi guys, just wanted to get the correct info regarding build mode in imgburn. do all the files and, or folders that you build have to be iso's already in your pc or w/e computer we use? from recent experience w/build mode, imgburn will build w/e's in my pc and then burn it, but unless it's already an iso or in vts audio, or video in my hard drive it won't play in most dvd players because of the format it comes in when doing it that way. my player plays just about everything, but that's not the case for others. also, is there a way i can add several or all the files i want to build at one time instead of one at a time? if i can please give me your best suggestions in doing it. it'll not only save me time ,but it'll also save me from adding the same file as some files come from the same folder.

    hi lightning. i saw on your imgburn website that you upgraded imgburn, but that it created some issues w/something else. what is the latest version? is it still 2.3.2.0? the pop up boxes i get don't mention anything about dvd video disc. they say something along the way about "you've only selected files... is the folder ... the root folder? otherwise the folder will be present in the menu..." if they do say what i just quoted, even when i click yes, what i get is the files on my dvd player which i have to open the first 1 in order for the movie to start . if you changed that pop up box in a new version then i have to get your new version. otherwise the only way i've been able to build is by browsing for the vts folder, selecting it, building it and then burning the iso. i'm trying too keep it as simple as possible. i do see though that many of us have the same difficulty in respect to build mode. any elaboration or extra suggestion on this is appreciated as always.

    hi chewy, i found out that in build mode building the vts folder is the sure fire way to make the iso that'll just show up as the original source in play back. what i do now is browse for the folder instead of browsing for the files. i'll play w/it some more and also check out cornholio's guide again. i haven't hit the link that you gave me here so i don't know whether or not it's the same as the original guide posted here in the forum.
  25. i keep forgetting imgburn is just as it name suggests, an image burner. i have built and burned copies straight from a media source, but the copies come out as vts folders. now i don't have a problem viewing these as my dvd player accepts just about every format out there. however, others don't support every format. now i realize what the build mode is all about. lord, i have to admit it's been right in front of me all the time concerning imgburn, it's features, and the guides that come with it. i'm slow sometimes, but i get there.
