Burn DVDs for both MAC & PC
on Sep 22, 2005 at 5:24:36 pm

Hi,
I need to create a DVD compatible on both systems.
I can compile it on PC (using DVDit Pro), and then?
Should I burn it on a Mac or I need to compile it also on Mac?
I tried to burn on PC but it won't be read on Mac.

Any suggestion?

Thanks,
Paolo

Paulo,

The problem may well be with DVDit Pro, because I use Nero and ReelDVD on the PC, and I can play DVDs just fine on my MAC G5.

Do you burn as ISO/UDF, UDF or DVD-Video.

Thanks,
Paolo

I use DVD SP to build my projects, then drag the Audio & Video_TS folders into Toast and burn it as UDF (DVD-ROM)
for cross-platform compatibility.

I'm using Toast 6.05, (I think the latest version has a new Video_TS files to DVD-Video setting, or something to that effect).
The recommended way to do it in 6.05 is to use DVD-ROM (UDF), drag the Audio & Video TS folders (but take out the .lay, or any layout files, as well as any data files first, they could interfere with playback on some players), and burn at 1x.

Ed,

Paolo started this thread and he's using Nero, not Toast, just as I am. So, your settings in Toast won't really help him. Let's try to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges...

Yeah, I know David. Didn't mean to confuse the issue. Nobody responded to his ISO/UDF question for a couple of days, so I tried to help specifically with the ISO/UDF answer. Glad you chimed in
with the actual Nero answer.

Yes, I think actually the problem is:
do I need to burn as UDF or ISO/UDF?

I tried as UDF but I had some problem on DVD players...

thanks a lot,
Paolo

I always burn an ISO using Nero.
I am using Adobe Encore, which spits out an IMG file when it makes a DVD image.
I change the extension from .img to .iso, and burn with Nero to DVD-R.
My particular drive and Nero don't let me burn slower than 4x using the particular Discmakers DVD-R media, but the results are 95% good, a few coasters.
The only problems I have is Windows Media Player has trouble with the discs, even duplicated ones. But Microsoft causes a lot of problems, so that's no surprise is it?
