    It looks your PB does not support the +RW format. What model do you have?
    Anyway stick to high quality DVD-R and you should be fine.

    Hey,
    I'm new to this and I would like to know if there is any good free DVD compression software available online? I have MacTheRipper, and I have ripped "Fight Club" but I cant get it on a DVD, and I dont want to spend a lot of money on software seeing as Im a poor college student.

    Londor, appreciate your response. I was always ead to believe that DVD+rw was superior, is this not the case? I shall try dvd-r. Apart from that was there anything else wrong in my process? Also if I cannot burn dvds on +rw, what can I use these discs for? Ta.

    Neither format is superior to the other quality wise. The - format is more compatible though.

    What PB model do you have? Also what version of Toast are you using?

    To know what kind of media you can use check which one of the following Superdrive models you have:

    Matshita UJ-815: DVD-R

    Matshita UJ-816: DVD-R/-RW

    Matshita UJ-825: DVD-R/-RW DVD+R/+RW

    Checked out your 3 point system, still getting no joy at all. I ripped a dvd using MTR, Burned using Toast Titanium, the apple now accepts the disc (dvd-r) but will not play in DVD player. In my home DVD player getting a cannot be read message. Any other tips would be appreciated.

    Try this

    Open DVDPlayer and click on "File" in the menu bar.

    Select "Open Video_TS folder".

    Choose the Video_TS folder that MTR had produced.

    Press "Play" on the controller.

    Does the movie play?

    Yes the MTR process is all fine, every single DVD i have ripped has worked in the way you suggest, opening from DVD file menu. That is all 100pc perfect. It is the next couple of stages. I inserted my burned DVD, but the DVD player didn't launch. I launched it myself and tried to play it with no success, then tried to open the file (ie: the one burned onto DVD) but getting error messages.

    If DVDPlayer is not launching when you insert the DVD is because you did not burn it in UDF format.

    If you are using a version of Toast 6 previous to the last one (6.0.7) you have to burn it as "DVD-ROM (UDF)" under the "Data" tab.

    If you are using 6.0.7 you have to burn it as "DVD-Video from VIDEO_TS" under the "Video" tab.

    Also if you want to play the backup on the Mac you have to burn it on a DVD-R.

    One more thing. Can you check how big the VIDEO_TS folder is?. To do it just click once on it. Click on "File" on the menu bar and select "Get info".

    You have followed the right steps. If it is not working there may be a problem with your copy of Toast. Did you buy it?

    Then download the latest version

    http://www.roxio.com/en/support/toast/software_updatesv6.jhtml


    You can also try to burn the DVD using Disk Utility.

    1. Download DVDImager ( http://lonestar.utsa.edu/llee/applescript/dvdimager.html ). It is free.

    2. Drag the VIDEO_TS folder you got from MTR on the DVDImager icon.

    3. Tick "Prompt for new destination".

    4. Click "Create image" and choose a destination (Desktop).

    5. Once the image has been created open Disk Utility. Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.

    6. Click on the "Burn" icon.

    7. Select the image produced by DVDImager.

    8. Burn it.

    Let me know if you got it working.

    I thought you were burning using the internal superdrive. What DVD burner are you using? What formats does it support?

    Hi. I am using Mac the ripper and dvdzone with Toast on my G5. Everything works great. What I'd like to know is what if I want to just rip and burn certain scenes or certain extras (like making of's, etc.) Is there a way to do this? Sometimes I want to make compilation dvd's of favorite scenes. Thanks
