Anyone able to help?

i have a dvd that has been authored and burnt. when opening in finder you see the usual folders - Audio TS and Video TS.

I want to be able to send the TS folders to someone on the other side of the world to burn a copy of the dvd. i tried this on a Mac, downloading the folders and using a Mac and everything seemed fine. However when i try use a PC it says "windows encountered a problem copying this folder" when i try drag it onto a blank dvd.

any ideas? is it as simple as needing a specific burning software the other end to burn it?

don't know about MAC, but if you have windows's "windows encountered a problem copying this folder" - 99% you have CSS encrypted disk OR you have bad blocks on your DVD disk :)

but, if you write that "dvd that has been authored and burnt" - why you can't burn +1 disk? :)

I don't know windows :-) but if you can copy it to a Mac without any special software and it plays in DVD Player, why not just make a new disc on the Mac?

Seems like you are making this harder then it needs to be.

You need to use DVD burning software on the PC side to burn the disc. You should do this on Mac also. Merely dropping the Video_TS folder onto the blank DVD may or may not produce a usable DVD. The files within the Video_TS folder must be written in a certain order on the disc.

What would work better is to create a disc image, and send that to the remote user. There's less chance for something to go wrong. He can burn the disc image to a DVD-R using DVD burning software. We send disc images between our facilities all the time and never have a problem.

I've also noticed the difference in Mac and PC before, but can't tell you why.

However just this week I needed to burn a DVD from Video TS folder that was copied for a production, and I found out Toast actually has an option where it allows you to just import a Video_TS folder, and it burns a disk from that.

Really easy. If you have access to a Mac with Toast, leave PC for the birds :)
