I have made a video DVD which features only a VIDEO_TS directory and I would like to copy it on a blank DVD. Since Nero warns me that copying from the DVD unit to the burner is risky, I have copied the VIDEO_TS directory on my hard drive and shall use it to make the DVD. My question is should I use:
1 - the Nero video DVD option which presents a structure with 2 empy directories (VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS) and replace the empty VIDEO_TS directory with mine, or
2 - should I use the Nero Data DVD option and insert my VIDEO_TS directory in the empty structure displayed by Nero and then burn it?
The Nero warning is related to the fact that my DVD burner and my DVD reader are both on the same IDE ribbon cable. I have already failed burning DVD using the straight DVD->DVD copy but may be the reason was because I had used poor quality blank DVD.
Apparently there are differences between Nero 5 and 6. My version is 5 and I am afraid that I am confusing things for you. Hopefully another Nero 6 user can point you in the right direction.
(E.g. I am unfamiliar with a "Save tracks to hard disk" option in Nero. What I would be looking for is an option that creates an .nrg [Nero specific disc image file] and an option to burn from image files. In that case you wouldn't have to decide whether to burn a data or video DVD.)
