First & formost you have an excellent program. I have a problem though. Hope you can help:

I have a Riped DVD. It plays on my MAC but after burning it doesn't play in the regular DVD player. I ran your program & it was able to detect errors & fixed all of them.

The DVD still plays on my MAC, the problem now is that I can't burn at all. Toast gives an error "The Contents of this VIDEO_TS Folder cannot be compressed". Can you please help me?

Thanks

Helping will require quite a fair amount of guessing. My guess is: Your *.VOB files are too big. How big are they?

1G*4 + 300MB= 4,3GB Hard to the limit. When you open the project in myDVD Edit, what's displayed as DVD's size? If it's 437… I think you're over the limit.

Try to make a DVD disk image with DVD Imager and burn it with Disk utility.

Often it works better.

My Numbers above should have been 47... not 437... Sorry for that. Sure 4644... is within the limits.

I always do like Jérôme suggessted: Creating a DVD Image with DVD Imager and burning that with Disc Utility.

Not so long.

What did you do with myDVDEdit, just open/save, or did you delete some PGC ?.
Did you use myDVDEdit 1.0 ?

Yes I used ver 1. I just opened the defective video_ts folder then your program automatically fixed the errors. I saved then tried to burn with no success.

I think I need to take a break and figure out

Could explain why it can't works on your DVD player, not why you can't burn it.

In my experience, Toast can be very fussy about what it will burn when you choose Video -> VIDEO_TS Folders. The same video can usually be burned when you choose Data -> DVD-ROM (UDF). However, I don't have a lot of experience with playing such DVD's in various players, so test one after burning and, if it plays in one player, you might want to still test it in others.

I confirm.

When you use the VIDEO_TS Folders option, Toast reads the IFO files, analyzes them and rebuilds the DVD. This is necessary if your DVD is large and needs two layers or must be reencoded. Otherwise the UDF option must be privileged.
