Hi Roger,

I really like DVDLab-Pro myself. If you really want to write to a DLT and keep using DVDLab-Pro, you can Gear Pro Mastering Edition version 7. This will allow you go from DVDLab to DLT, plus set the CSS flag.

Gear will also allow you to transfer the tape image to your hard drive. You will the three files that make up a DLT that way. Main.DAT, DDPID, and Control. I believe those are the files. I forget now.

DVD Studio Pro actually has a neat feature called "READ DLT", which will read the DLT and transfer the files back to the hard drive as a working VIDEO_TS folder that can be played with a software DVD player. I have not tried it with CSS flagged DLTs though.

Still, if all you want to do is see if the files are there, that would work.

Another util I use is called TapeCopy 2.1 from NovStore. That has a function to allow you to see what files are on the tape, plus it makes backups of DLTs if you have 2 or more DLT drives.

Gear is $400, and TapeCopy is $400. DVDSP is $500 and requires a Mac.
