Encore writes UDF version 2.0 files onto DVD, which (last time I checked) OSX has trouble with. You can either have Encore create a DVD Image or Folder, and have another app that writes UDF 1.2 files burn it. Or you can check this out: http://www.softarch.com/us/products/rdvd.html

thanks for the info too bad encore dosent have a switch to allow you to switch between diferent versions....Do you know of any software that will write udf 1.2 files and accept encore file types?...

Off the top of my head, I think Nero can, but I wouldn't run out and buy anything until you can find out for sure. You can export from Encore as a DVD Folder or DVD Image, which are standard file types that can be burned to a DVD.

well ive done some looking around and have come up with these results...
I recently tried my dvd in a few other p.c.s and the same error i was getting with a mac happened...(no video, choppy audio). I tried to burn the dvd image from another software package but i have yet to find a package that burns .img files on the p.c. side nero, roxio. alcohol will not recgonize that format so i tried to change it to iso..and burn that didnt work at all dvd player spat it out. So then i tried a dvd folder and burning that with nero this was the error
"file is not a dvd format"
"dvd video files failed. the resulting dvd may be unplayable do you want to continue?" I tried ignoring the error and burning anyway. The dvd didnt play.
Finally I tried copying off of the first working dvd i burnt. I copied the folder on to my hard drive and tried to burn that dvd folder it worked fine which tells this....
encores build-dvd disc works fine
encores build-dvd folder does not work properly. I looked at the file size between the dvd disc and the dvd folder i burnt they were different sizes... I am at a loss. Is anyone else having issues with playing their dvds on computers? and if so is there a solution or do i have to actually work in sonic my dvd which actually works on all platforms but is very amateur....
