    10.4.11 and using simply burns to burn dvds is doing odd things. i have a
    dvd i want to make a bunch of copies of. i have the video and audio ts folders
    stored in a common folder. i drag them to simply burns, name the dvd, save
    this as a project and burn it. everything works fine. the dvd auto starts in
    my standalone dvd player, mac, and pc. when i burn the second copy, it also
    is fine in the dvd and pc, but none of the macs i've tried it on will recognize
    the disc. placing it in the mac does bring up the dvd player but it doesn't
    start automatically. pressing the play button brings up a message that there is
    an unsupported disc in the player. however, by opening the file menu--->open
    dvd media--->selecting the dvd--->choose, the dvd plays fine with the minor
    exception of not going to full screen mode.

    this has happened with an older version of simply burns as well as the latest

    i tried burning the folders directly from dvdstudiopro and that worked perfectly
    except i have to re-enter the dvd name and re-navigate to the dvd folders for
    each dvd i burn.

    any ideas on why this could be happening?

    found something of a solution. not the best, but it has worked so far.

    i use simply burns for burning. using simply burns to make an image
    of one of the dvd's that does work properly and then burning that
    image, again using simply burns, seems to avoid the issue.

    it doesn't answer the question of why one burn works and the second
    doesn't and it also requires the extra time and steps and storage to
    make images of any dvd's being duplicated.

    not the best solution, but, as i say, it's been working.

    after MTR??

    Maybe somebody in this thread can help me. After ripping a dvd with MTR, what do you use to compress the TS files to fit it on a standard 4.7 dvd-r? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
