    Default Format in Imageburn

    I am VERY new at this so sorry if I sound dumb here. I am trying to create backups of my DVDs in the same format so I can play them in a DVD player. The process I used was DVD Shrink ---> PageEdit ---> ImgBurn. When I finally finished the burn, it plays on my CPU but not on my DVD player. What else do I need to add to the process or do i need to change something?? Thanks for the help

    Make sure that your standalone player will play the format discs you are backing up on to.

    I know that it plays CDs, CDR, CDRW, MP3, DVD. Would this not play a DVD+R? Its a Samsung S221 model

    From amazon.com: DVD-Video, DVD-R, audio CD, and MP3 CD-R/CD-RW playback

    DVD-Video, DVD-R
    It will only play the -R flavored discs...you might try booktyping those +R discs if your burner is capable of it. What make and model # is your burner?

    I know that I am burning on Memorex Double layer DVD+R disks. I didnt realize that I could use the single layers, so I have a few doubles that I am burning on to to begin. My burner is an LG internal 16x super multi with lightscribe. I think the model number is GSA-4166B. Says it writes to all DVD formats compatible (DVD +-R, +-RW, DVD-RAM). Maybe my DVD player just doesnt play this format?? Is there a way to choose which format I want to use since the player does support DVD -R?

    Before you get going down this road too far, a new player is only 60-70$US

    The LG is capable of booktyping your discs...I would save those DL disc until you get the hang of burning (expensive coasters), in the mean time go and get either some -R SL discs and try burning them...or try some +R SL discs and booktype them with Imgburn.

    At any rate, with DL discs don't use DVD Shrink...you will only make coasters. DVD Shrink is really good at compressing your movies to fit onto a SL disc so you will want to continue to use it for your SL backups.

    Stay away from Memorex blanks...try some Verbatims or Sony, Maxell, Fuji made in Japan.

    Follow the link and thread that Gary D posted right above you, and use +R media and use the bitsetting capability of your burner to set it to DVD-Rom, then your player will think it is a factory DVD.

    Also check your local stores for Sony disc made in Japan as they are good disc too. The on line store supermediastore has a good selection of disc. Just look around and find the best price on the disc and the best quality of disc (per Blutach's and mine suggestions) and then stock up on as many as you can afford or need at the time.

    I use my DL disc to back up the very few movies that I want to keep everything on the original, with the same quality as the original. This will be something that you will figure out the more you burn and read post from this site, as it is a matter of preference.

    Do I need to use DVD shrink before PgcEdit and Imgburn?? Can I just use the latter two programs? I guess I dont see how the file created in DVD shrink affects the recording.
