Hello, I'm new but I have looked around at several messages to try to answer my questions, which did offer some help, but I still haven't met success. I have an iMacG4. I ripped a DVD with Mac the Ripper. The file was 4.1 GB so I did not compress (should you do this anyway?). From inside the folder labeled with the title of my DVD, I dropped the "VIDEO_TS" folder into Roxio Toast. I used the Data tab, and selected DVD-ROM. I removed the ds_store file (once in toast. Should I have removed this from my desktop folder?). I burned onto DVD-R (Memorex) The burn finished, but the DVD-R was not recognized either by my stand alone or computer. I have read that the title of the DVD-R is important. Once in Toast I renamed the DVD-R to match the name of the ripped DVD (CAPS with _ between words). Should I have renamed the "VIDEO_TS" folder instead? I have also seen an AUDIO_TS mentioned in the forums...I did not see this. Sorry to be so long, but I have tried to take the advice that I saw here. Anyhelp would be very appreciated.
