First of all, thanks for making this program. It's a lifesaver.

However, it seems no matter what program or method I use to burn my disc (post-myDVDEdit) two folders appear on my DVD player: one that plays the movie and one that says "data"...clicking on it takes you to the audio_ts & video_ts folders.

Am I somehow burning a data disc or DVD-ROM? I am making a master for a commercial DVD that is going to the presses this weekend, so I need to fix this! I'm pretty sure the problem stems from something within myDVDEdit.

Here's all the details:

The movie is an export from Final Cut Pro.
The menus were whipped up in iDVD.
I've followed the steps here and changed everything in my video_ts copy to "16:9 auto Letterbox."
I've tried burning the video_ts folder with Toast 10 and a series of other programs, all giving me the same result.

Yeah, I'd found those posts and tried a few of those methods to no avail.

DVDImager and couldn't get it to work

I tried burning a DVD from video_ts with LiquidCD & had the same problem. I saved the folder as a disc image (ISO & LiquidCD formats), tried burning with Disk Utility and get "The disc is reserved for exclusive use by another application." I've tried DVD Image Utility and it says "Can't get alias [file name] of application "Finder." DVD Imager typically says "working" for very long periods of time and doesn't seem to actually do anything.

I've lost a day and a half on this and my deadline is rapidly approaching. Boy do I ever feel like throwing in the towel. Neutral

Additionally, I should say my DVD is playing on my Blu-ray player.

I just don't like that it shows the two folders (movie & data) on my home menu when I click "play movie"...maybe I'm just being picky, but other commercial DVDs don't do that, so I don't want mine to either. Furthermore, the presence of that data folder is giving me the impression I'm burning a non-universal disc.

I am going to guess at the problem- but I may be wrong.

I am guessing that the root of the dvd is NOT the video_ts folder, but the folder that contains the audio_ts and the video_ts folder.

dragging and droppping just the video_ts folder to DVD imager
then burning to disc with disk util worked perfect on this end...

hope this helps.

if not, don't know what to suggest
since I am a noob.

The root of a DVD MUST contains the AUDIO_TS and the VIDEO_TS folder

That's what DVDImager does.

I really don't know what you have done. I think you looking difficulties where things are easy.

Try again.
Open the last version of DVDImager
Drag and drop the VIDEO_TS folder on it (not a alias but the real folder)
Click on the start button.

It must ask you for a destination file name and a progress bar must appear.
Click right (or control click) on the resulted .iso file and select Open with Disk Utility
Select the disk to burn and click on the burn icon.
Don't choose a burning speed too high, some (bad) DVD player don't like it. I think 4 is a good option.

I think your DVD player show you the folders because it not recognize it as a DVD Video but as a DVD ROM (your DVD player can read divx too, isn't it). This is the case if you don't use the UDF disk format.
