    Hi,
    I have an iso which I would like to convert for DVD Players format. After running a web search, I found that dvdSanta can do the job. Still, dvdSanta accepts input exclusively from a CD/DVD drive. Since my file is residing on my HD, and I don't like the idea of a two-step DVD media burning, one from my HD to a DVD disk, two from this DVD disk in ISO format to DVD format via dvdSanta, I hoped to find a way to set a virtual DVD drive, copy the ISO file to it, input it to dvdSanta, and output it to a DVD media.
    I tried Paragon CD-ROM Emulator, but failed either in copying the file to this virtual disk or in finding a way for inputting the file from the virtual disk to dvdSanta.
    Can you suggest a way of converting a DVD ISO file to a DVD format to be burned on a DVD media?

    I don't know anything about dvdSanta but, if you are using either NERO or ROXIO take the hint from ACCAT13.

    It probably is already in DVD format, hence the ISO which is ready to burn to DVD.

    Get this and burn it.

    Hi MysticEyes,
    Thanks.

    Is there a way check if it's in DVD format PRIOR to burning. I would better save a media if it's not in DVD format.

    Hi Chermesh,

    DVDSANTA does read from HD.

    Certainly using Full v 4.00.
