DVD Shrink 3.2.0.15 - image question

    I created a backup of one of my movies and set it up to create an .ISO instead of burning.

    Instead of creating an .ISO it created the image as an .MDS image. I am familiar with this image type as well (though Im not sure why it did not create an ISO) -- but when I boot up Alcohol 120% to burn it, Alcohol tells me that it is an invalid image type. MDS images are Alcohol 120's native image.

    Any ideas as to why I did not get a standard .ISO image?

    MDS files are created on FAT 32 drives because of the 4GB file size limit.

    There does not seem to be a single standard for all MDS files.

    HI JitWad. :)

    Your file system is probably FAT32.
    It has a file size limitation which requires DVD Shrink to split the ISO.

    DVD Decrypter and Nero (and other softwares, I'd guess) can burn theses files though. ;)

    Yup...that would be it. My slave drive is still on FAT32, never have gotten around to converting. I suppose I should.

    Thanks for that easy solution.

    I would definitely advise an update to NTFS if you are going to continue DVD back ups , it makes life a lot easier :c)

    No 4GB limitations anymore & proper .ISO output(s)
