    What does work . . .
    -I can rip the DVD using SmartRipper
    (this is a disc where all files fall well under 4 GB)
    -Just to be totally safe, I'll delete all the non-VOB files and recreate them in Ifoedit.
    -I can then DVD PLAY the file just fine in IFOEdit
    -All files will be in a VIDEO_TS directory
    -I can burn the directory and files to a DVD-R (on either a Pioneer DVD-RW 104 or a Pacific Digital DVD-RAM/DVD-R--on different machines).

    THE PROBLEM:
    Once I have a completed disc, I can put it back into a DVD-ROM drive (or either of the drives mentioned above) and I get a disc that shows a root directory of VIDEO_TS and with all the relevant files within it. But the disc will not open up and play like a DVD. The other problem is . . . sometimes they DO play.

    I've tried cheap discs, expensive discs . . . doesn't matter . . . the vast majority of times, I still get a DVD-R that has the files but won't play.

    I've read the "guides" and I'm clearly missing something . . . probably something obvious. Can anyone point out to me what it is?

    Thanks . . .
