    I was just wondering if there is anyway to change the menu on a previously burned dvd-r without having to burn to a new disc?

    Thanks

    You can rip the video using vob2mpg http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=VOB2MPG which will give you single video file in MPEG2 format. Doesn't take long as it doesn't reencode the video which is key here if you want to maintain the original quailty of the video.

    From there you can import the video into your authoring app, just make sure to match the settings of the original video so it doesn't reencode it.

    You may want to also search throught the guides sections here as there is multiple ways to accomplish this:

    If you look through the guide sections you'll find instructions on doing that, search for guides under pgcedit, ifoedit and dvdshrink.

    Only if it's RW, R's can only be written to once. RW's are more of temporary storage medium for unimpoortant stuff or a testing medium as they are more prone to errors.
