    Please help folks.

    I need to burn 2 DVD Folders each 1.96 GB on a 4.7 gb disc.

    I have tried 2 modes as a trial on a DVD RW disc.
    One using the 2 DVD Folders
    and
    next as iso image of each folder.

    The burning was successful but they will not play on my stand alone player.

    I used the ImgBurn and also the DeepBurner Pro.

    I have a 4.7 gb disc burnt many years ago which has 2 dvd files/folders but I am unable to remember how I did that.

    So if yu can share your experience please, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks a lot. Cheers

    You need some DVD authoring software to do that, try DVD Flick.

    Use DVD Flick to write the new Video_TS folder to your hard drive first, make sure it plays OK on your PC and then burn a disc. Use a DVD RW first as a test and then finally burn a DVD R (either + or - format).

    Remember that a 4.7 GB disc actually holds about 4.3 GB, so keep the total size of the files under that limit.

    Hello buddy,

    The task is done sucessfully, so thx a lot for your time and tips.

    I will also do a rip to XVID and see the results, after all besides the quality I must try to press max files on the DVD R.

    Have a nice day.
    Cheers

    If you're final DVD files are bigger than 4.3 GB there are a couple other options you could try.

    1. You can get Dual-Layer DVD's that hold about 8.6 GB, but they're more expensive and a little trickier to burn.

    2. Get DVD Shrink that re-encodes the files at a slightly lower quality so that the final size is about 4.3 GB.

    Yer right bro, the 8.6 gb is a expensive proposition so I never use it.

    Point 2) will try that too for the future files.

    But finally I feel the rip to XVID was to my satisfaction, when I compared the DVD Flick job, and I burnt the DVD R to the max, as a Data Mode. There was a few MP3 files so those also came along fine in the empty space.

    I will sign out and close the thread with appreciation and greetings for your time and effort.

    Cheers :)
