Default call me dumb, I dont understand Image Burn

I did read Cynthias great (as always) helpful guide but Im confused.

If I have the usual set of files like from DVD Shrink/DVDFab......ie. video TS....etc.....Ifo/bup.....etc

Can these be burned to a backup disc similar to Nero does.
My Nero wont play on Vista............

so essentially my question is:

if I burn the video TS etc files to a disc with ImagBurn.....will the backup play on my DVD player?

thank you ALL

You might want to give this a Burn automatically with ImgBurn from DVD Shrink
This version will allow you to Burn from Shrink.

If you want to burn Video files, you would use Biuld mode in ImgBurn.

I will see if I can find the guide for that and add to this post.

Hope this helps.

And if you do the process properly YES they will play on your DVD player.

Edit: Here is a really good guide for using Build Mode. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1779

Hope this helps.

hi
thank you for your help.

so if I use the build mode of image burn with the usual files (bups, ifos, Video TS-- etc) then this will make a playable DVD on a stand alone player?
thank u.

boo99,

To keep things simple...

As ratboy suggested - you might want to give this a try - http://forum.digital-digest.com/showthread.php?t=63869

I do it in a similar way; why bother using "build" mode? Just run your backup thru shrink, save as an ISO, & imgburn will burn that ISO, piece of cake.

Actually, I burn 4 + ISO's at a time using the queue feature of imgburn, but that's a story for another day...

give it a try the simple way...

did you follow this guide?

otherwise if your files were not in a video_ts folder you are asked a question
should it be considered one, look at the dvd's you burned?

is there a video folder and audio one?

hi, yes i remember that question and I said No cause all i had were the bups/ifo/ts usual files....
is that an imp. question to the burning results?

IE....I had a backup of Poseidon.
In c drive was file Poseidon.....then open that up and theres all the usual files as I said......NO separate Video TS or Audio TS at all.

Does this matter?

thnx.

Also -- What is the advantage or disadvanage of using the ISO image as opposed to the usual burning method with Nero (which I lost and doesnt work in my vista-----hence this original question)

thank u.

You might want to give this a Burn automatically with ImgBurn from DVD Shrink This version will allow you to Burn from Shrink with ImgBurn automatically just like when you had Nero.

That is why I posted it.

This is the easiest way to do it, when you hit backup in Shrink, pick iso and burn with ImgBurn, have a dvd in drive and let it burn.

yes, very important, and you answered it wrong

I do my movies the same way by naming the folder and just having the files inside

If I answer it no--- wouldnt it create the Video_TS folder for me?
Still dont know why this folder is needed.

In Shrink I never used that folder.......just the files in Nero.

Guess Image burn needs that folder for some reason.

Anways I find the questions kinda confusing so I will either create my own folder (Video_TS) and paste files to it or....

Just have Shrink make ISO and burn that in Image Burn as someone suggested here
thnx for replies.
