Hi, this is my first post in this forum and i'm rather new to DVD burning...figured it's finally about time to backup the aging collection. I found the guides you've all posted links to very informative and helpfull, however, i am having a bit of trouble with the formatting of my burnt disc itself. I have successfully copied (by re-authoring) Resevoir Dogs and a few other movies onto my HD using DVD shrink. I have a previously installed version of Nero which came with my recently purchased DVD-Burner.. so i didn't think i needed an upgrade. DVD-Shrink's output files after copying Resevoir Dogs were as follows: VIDEO_TS.BUP VIDEO_TS.IFO VTS_01_0.BUP VTS_01_0.IFO VTS_01_1 (VOB file) VTS_01_2 (VOB file) VTS_01_3 (VOB file) VTS_01_4 (VOB file) The four VOB files were approx. 1 gig each, which accounts for the movie..(what are the bup, and ifo's?) All of these files were contained in the folder created by DVD-Shrink, which i then proceeded to burn onto a dvd data-disc using nero. I can view the movie on my dvd player, but instead of playing as if it were a VHS without menus, the DVD is still divided into four separate files which must be played individually in order. Also, the movie does not load directly - but rather the dvd player opens the folder and shows me the VBO's within..almost as if i were browsing the file with windows explorer. My question to you is: How do i make the dvd play straight through from beginning to end, without having to load each clip from the folder on the dvd?..I guess burning these files as a data disc was not the way to go, but i couldn't find an option for dvd video with nero Any help would be much appreciated..Thanks everyone! Colin.
