    hey There once again
    i have a question, i can create menus for a file before burning it but is there a way to make a menu for a movie already on a dvd without disturbing the movie. i understand i may have to lose a little quality but thats fine as long as its just a little.
    thanks

    re dump the dvd on your hard drive.

    Open up tmpgenc dvd author and run it thought it but make sure you add the menus before you re burn it

    hey man
    that was what i was trying to avoid. so theres no way to just add menus without doing all that because i have the movie on a DVD+R and i dont want to waste a DVD. they are getting kinda expensive in Canada. but if there is no other way just tell me i will try to do it your way
    thanks

    Sags,

    You don't want to waste another dvd+r as they are "expensive." Buy some dvd+rw's. C$.50 is still cheap. Also, do you think your computer's power supply is magic (and therefore free)? Probably it is running on electricity which is costing you money every time you bump this thread up, hoping someone has found a miracle solution for you all in the name of saving C$.50. You'll find people will stop helping you if you're not willing to help yourself. Spend the money.

    You cannot magically add whatever you want, to a written disk.
    The structure is virtually, set it stone.
    If you want menus, rip the thing to your hard drive, and author it properly.
    Go buy a bulk pack of 4x DVD+R's at Office Depot/Future Shock/Staples, less than $24 for 50.

    i was just curious if there was a way without actually putting it on the HD. i am completely new to this stuff so... but if the only way is reburn it i guess i will do it
    thanks

    http://www.intervideo.com/jsp/WinDVDCreator_Download.jsp

    Go to this web page and download this software. It will give you many options as to creating your movies. Chapters, titles, your own picture on the DVD and it will make the DVD so it will play on you DVD player including picking what chapters you want. It will blend the movie scenes and it's easy to use. As i know it since i only use this software myself to burn DVDS you don't need any certain DVD manufactured DVD. I use any brand and they all turn out excellent quality. It will also do double layer as long as your DVD Burner and DVD disks are capable.

    The quality of that VCD is not DVD quality, and it may not be worth it to burn it to a DVD, unless you are trying to burn more than one VCD to a DVD.

    You won't be able to improve the quality.

    its not the quality i am worried about
    the VCD doesnt work on my aunts dvd player. it worked on mine but it didnt work on hers so i thought if i make it into dvd format and put it in a DVD the player might be able to read it

    Sags-
    I am also a newbie at this. The file I have downloaded is an AVI file but it has two parts. If I am understanding you, You used Divx to convert the file and then nero recode to burn the converted file? Any advice would help me.

    yes josh
    i used 'vso divx to dvd' program to convert my avi files. if u have 2 files of the same movie just click on the source button and add the first file and then click on source again and add the second file. this way the files will be in 1 folder so you can burn it on 1 dvd. the convertion takes about an hour a file. most movies just come in 1 file though. use nero recode to burn it. burning should not take more than 25-30 min. there are lots of good burning programs out there not just nero.
    if u have any questions just ask back.
