How do I burn an ISO file to DVD?

Hi,

I'm a newcomer to Imgburn so forgive my ignorance.

I've seen several topics on how to burn .VOB and .IFO files to an .iso file, but how do you do the reverse? I've just burnt an .ISO file to a DVD and all I got on the DVD was the original .ISO file. I expected AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders.

Regards,

Pilot

Hi Cornholio.

Another question for you that I haven't been able to find the answer to.

I've ripped a DVD to my hard drive and it's now there as IFO and VOB files in VIDEO_TS. I've usually burnt these to DVD with Nero BurningRom, but I've recently been having problems with Nero. How do I do it with ImgBurn? All I can find out is how to convert these files to an ISO file and that's not what I want; I simply want to copy the VOB and IFO files. Sorry if I'm being thick.

Thanks,

Pilot.

Hi Cornholio,

With Nero BurningRom I simply burn the VOB and IFO files to the DVD. Am I right in assuming that with ImgBurn I first have to create an ISO file on my hard drive using the Build Mode then burn this to the DVD using the Write Mode, cos all the guides seem to be about create ISO files or am I missing something?

Cheers,

Pilot.

Hi Clown,

Thanks for your reply. I'm trying that now. BTW, the image you posted was unreadable, even when blown up, I suggest you resize your image to that for 15 inch monitor then post the image for Forum 1. I've attached a pic of ImgBurn doing what your suggested.

Cheers,

Pilot.

JohnthePilot, Your above statement is correct. Burn the image from your harddrive to media and you should not have any problems. Let us know what happens :)

Hi again Kevdriver,

The VIDEO_TS folder was created by DVD Shrink and is 4.35 GB. Using Nero BurningRom this fits easily on a 4.7GB DVD. I noticed when using ImgBurn that the file size was 4.68GB. This is pushing it to fit on a single layer disc. Why the discrepancy?

Regards,

Pilot.

I'm more confused than ever. Despite the error message I got (see image I posted) when I followd da Clown's suggestion, the DVD played perfectly on my PC using Nero Showtime, but when I tried to play it in my free standing DVD player it reported "No Disc". It is 4 a.m. here and my brain isn't working too well, but this is beyond me :)

Cheers,

Pilot

This is really doing my head in. I've just gone back up to da Clown's original post and his image is now full size and perfectly readable. When I first looked at the post it was a thumbnail and even blown up was as shown in my posted image. What is going on?

I'm going to bed.

Cheers,

Pilot.

John, Nero probabley burned the image in a format which your stand alone player doesn't recognize, hence the "No Disc" message. Computer drives are able to play more varities of formats because of the different programs that they have access to to do so, hence playing through Nero showtime in this case.

 

 

 

All the DVDs' I play on my PC, play through Power DVD, having been burnt with Imgburn from a .ISO file. :)

Well as you can see from the log the verify on that burn failed, the drive is trying to read the disc back and failing.

 

It might be unconnected but I have never heard of the media ID on those discs, by that I mean the dye manufacturer. Here on the forum we see a lot of problems caused by poor media. Members by discs based on a brand name, Maxell, TDK etc but the dye on those discs can be really shoddy.

 

For trouble free burns I use Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim dye, it's hard to get over the counter in shops so it's best to use an online retailer like www.svp.co.uk who give you the media id (dye) info on their site.

 

If I was you I would get some top quality media....... :)

How can you tell the dye manufacturer from that log? Anyway, yes they are TDK. At least I could see that bit and I'll be real pissed off if they are fake. I might as well go back to Tesco's own brand at one third the price. At least they work. I've not tried to burn one of those with ImgBurn, only Nero. I'll try one of those and see what happens.

Cheers,

Pilot.
