    I promise I have looked and looked in here to find the answer to my question, but haven't yet found it. Please someone point me in the right direction.

    I own a Region 1 DVD and I want to copy to make it Region 2 so it will play in the DVD player upstairs which isn't chipped. I have used Mac the Ripper. I have dragged in to DVD2oneX 1.2 to shrink to 4.15gb. I have now two files an Audio_TS (empty) and a Video_TS file.

    I have dragged them into to Toast version 6.0 using the DVD-Video option - where the file is called VTS-01_1. I have ticked Create DVD menu. At the top of the window it says DVD-Video: My DVD. I have even tried a suggestion from here the Data UDF option to burn them onto a -RW DVD. In the toast window, I can see the movie if I select it and use the arrow. It is all there.

    However it will not complete the process. It goes through the encoding bit, then the At the very end of the process I get an error message saying
    "the drive reported an error:
    Sense key = ILLEGAL REQUEST
    Sense code = 0x30, 0x08
    which i I OK.

    Then I get
    Couldn't set up the track for writing.

    I have tried it on another owned DVD to see if it were just this one. But exactly the same thing happens, and sometimes it says

    Media files missing.

    I have tried to play the Video_Ts file in my DVD player on the mac and it plays.

    Assuming you ripped the encryption off the DVD correctly, all you have to do is create a new data DVD-Rom UDF format in toast and droped the audio and video ts folders and it should be fine. The audio_ts folder will always be empty, it is for DVD audio dvds.

    You also might want to update to the newest version of toast 6, which I believe is at 6.1 now.

    Are you running Tiger or Panther?

    It sounds like everything you're doing is correct, so my suggestion would be to download the latest update for Toast from Roxio , version 6.1, and hopefully it'll solve your problems :)

    From what you've written, you already have a properly ripped and formatted the DVD copy.

    You dont need to create a menu or use the create settings, Just set it to UDF DVD-ROM option, and drop the 2 folders (Audio/Video_TS) you got from running DVD2OneX into the center pane.

    It's trying to create a menu structure when there already is one, that's the error you're getting, IMO.

    Now, Since you've used MTR, the region code should have already been changed to region 0. The non-chipped dvd player should be able to read a Region 0 without any modification.

    editted format.

    I am still struggling to copy anything to DVD. I tried to copy some photos and still get the same messages.. ie from finder and burn - error code 2147357542 - the console message mentions something about Malloc. When I tried to use Toast and got the same old message as I got before

    The drive reported an error:
    Sense Code = 0x30, 0x08
    Couldn't set up track for writing.

    7 months on and I haven't yet managed to write to DVD. I can burn stuff to CDs by the way, which is what I did for my photos in the end. But the DVDs I have are 4.7gb and not 700mb!

    This may be a silly question, but are you sure that you have a DVD burner?

    Are you sure that your blank DVDs match the standard that your DVD burner supports (DVD-R burners need DVD-R blank discs, DVD+R burners need DVD+R blank discs)?

    An Apple "Combo" drive is *not* a DVD burner, only a DVD player.

    There you go. It's only a Combo drive... it would read DVD-RW (Read-Write) if it was a SuperDrive.

    You cannot burn DVDs with this drive.

    The main thing to look for is under Disc Burning and look at the formats listed beside "DVD-Write:".

    If you get an external drive you can do your dvds as you like. Sorry to see you don't have a superdrive as you did put in a good deal of time :eek:
