    Default How to burn a single track 4.35 GB ISO file on DVD?

    Hi there,

    this might be a 'newbie' question, so maybe this post should be moved to the 'Newbie' subforum under the 'General Discussion' board, although I think it might be better off in here with the dvd pros.

    Here's my question:

    I've got this 4,35 GB ISO video file. I busted it with IsoBuster 1.7 and it shows a file structure like this: DVD > Session 1 > Track 01.

    I figured, if I burn it on DVD just like this (I own Nero Burning ROM 6.6.0.13) I'd be watching the video in a couple of minutes. Well, you might have guessed, but it didn't quite work out that way. After trying to burn the image as (allmost) described in jmet's sticky post "Using Nero Burning ROM to Burn a DVD" (http://forum.digital-digest.com/showthread.php?t=61570), which had to be altered due to the lack of those individual VOB files of course, everything went pretty well. After the burning was completed I reinserted the dvd into the player - but nothing happened. No files were on it (or not recocnized I should say) by the system (Win 2000 Pro).

    So I tried it a second time. Nero refused to burn the image in ISO mode (bigger than 2 GB, so too big), that's why I used UDF 1 as suggested by the program. That worked well, despite the loss of data that could've happened as described in Datawatch99's post "recover 4+Gig files from DVD?" (http://forum.digital-digest.com/show...+iso+track+dvd). There's the same amount of data on my dvd as on my hard disc fortunately.

    Yet, I can't watch the movie.

    How do I burn it to dvd in order to watch the thing, or how do I tranfer (transcode?) it to a video file onto my hd in order to watch it? I know, asking this might sound silly, but I ain't got the slightest clou.

    I guess you guys know how to help me with my little problem here. Please let me know wether you need any additional info. Thanks in advance.



    P.S.: A couple of minutes ago I read the post DVD Shrink and ISO/MDS files or what about those .i00, .i01 files? from Chetwood (http://forum.digital-digest.com/show...threadid=44796) saying something about DVD Shrink being able to read ISO image files. So I downloaded, installed and started it. It refused to open my ISO file in question. The error message read: DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Invalid UDF filesystem. Does this mean I should forget about this file, or is it still worth a try?

    Use ImgBurn to burn your iso NOT Nero. When I use Nero, I get an error saying the ISO is to large. ImgBurn is a wonderful program to burn with. It will also update the firmware on your burner. Here is a link to the forum. Read the sticky's first

    Thanks for your respond,

    but I tried that allready without success. ImgBurn gave me an error message "Invalid or unsupported image file format".


    I wonder what's wrong with this file. Unfortunately I don't know which program it was created with.

    Hi,

    so far I never worked with DAEMON Tools. But I happened to have a dist of it on my hd, so I installed it. I found the ISO file and mounted it and nothing happened. No reaction whatsoever. There should be a manual for that program unter http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/daemonhelp.php, but that seems to be gone (HTTP 404). As described on their homepage I did the following:

    Mounting an image:
    1. Right-click on the DAEMON Tools trayicon
    2. Select Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
    3. Select Device [?:]
    4. Click Mount
    5. Browse and select the image you wish to mount
    6. Click OK or double-click on the file to mount
    When I tried #6. IsoBuster opened showing me what I allready know. So I figured I try it with Right-click the file > Open with > choose either DAEMON Tools or Virtual DAEMON Manager, as it is called in the device tray. The program didn't show up on the list of software you can choose from to open a file extension with. So I unmounted the image and inserted a DVD with a backup of the ISO image. There was "No media" detected in any device . I set it to the number of two devices (the actual number of CD/DVD devices on my PC), tried again and turned up with the same result. Maybe it's because DAEMON Tools shows up the wrong letters for these devices. Drive letter for my CD Rom device is: (D) Drive letter for my DVD Rom device is (K). What DAEMON Tools tries to detect starts with the letter O (Device O: [O:] No media / Device 1: [P:] No media). That doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Anyways, it looks like DAEMON Tools can't be of any help in this case.



    To your question:
    How did you make this ISO?

    I didn't. I downloaded it from the internet. If I knew how it was fabricated, I'd probably have a clou of how this file must be treated. Sorry, but I can't provide this info.
