Why not just use the original DVD?

I'm confused too.

Bit more clarity required Sammy - do you want to convert and rip to DVD format?, or just copy the media file to a DVD - in which case Win7 etc can do that.

Do you want to make a DVD from an MKV file? AVS2DVD is pretty good, use the HCEnc encoder for best results.

I'm giving this a try. It is making the *.vob files and placing them in a folder on my HDD. What is the next step to get them on a DVD?

Correct. Now use your favorite DVD burning program to burn it onto a DVD. If on a PC, I would recommend Imgburn.

If you are on a PC, I would use Imgburn. However, you can use whatever is your favorite DVD burning program.

I have image burn but doesn't that just make iso's?

I need it in a format directly readable using a DVD player to give some TV shows to a friend that doesn't have access to them.

NM: Their website says, "You can use it to build DVD Video discs (from a VIDEO_TS folder), HD DVD Video discs (from a HVDVD_TS folder) and Blu-ray Video discs (from a BDAV / BDMV folder) with ease." I did not know this. Thanks, I'll give that a whirl.

Yepper. Use ImgBurn in 'Build Mode' and pick your DVD writer as the destination. If I recall, you just have to select the folder and it knows how to structure it as a DVD.

Well the disc I created played back on my PC but took forever to load. I tried it in my Blu-ray player and it sounded like it was killing the drive or laser or something so I stopped and ejected it. I followed the instructions above for "Build" and imageburn even chimed in and said for DVD Video you need to do something or other, do you want me to do it for you? I clicked yes and it took about 30 minutes to burn (4xDVD discs I had lying about for years).

I never knew you could do that with imgburn. I assume there's no menu or anything it just goes straight to the video?

I still vote for convertxtodvd. Use it often for people that want something but don't have something that plays mkvs.

I was trying the "free" solution but I may have to pay for something to do this if I don't get it figured out. BTW, I was able to create a simple menu which loaded fairly quickly on my computer but it was loading the actual ts file that was taking a couple minutes to load. I never got that far on my Blu-ray player. I'm going to try a bit more before giving up, though. Thinking I must have done something wrong.

That sounds like a disc-compatibility problem.

The disc you burned is readable but sometimes only marginally; the long load time on your PC is probably because your O/S is receiving errors from its BR drive and is retrying the failing operation. Eventually, it succeeds. If the disc plays without error afterward, the "marginal" part of the disc is (probably) near or in the "root directory" (or whatever it's called in a DVD image.) Your BR player, using a different optics and different software, fails to read the disc at all.

I'd recommend, if you're interested,
  • burn another disc;
  • switch disc brands;
  • try burning on a different PC; and/or
  • trying playing your burns on a different BR player.

The first two aren't a problem. I'll need to swap to the DVD burner I have laying around or take my portable burner over to the living room and try on the HTPC for the third one.

I've solved this problem by switching blanks and switching drives (not PC's as I suggested, although it couldn't hurt.)

OTOH, I've created discs which work perfectly on my home and work PC's, but not for my technically knowledgeable cousin. I switched from DVD-R to DVD+R, switched manufacturers, and bought a new drive. She still can't read any disc I create at home or work. I can still read them all.

Good luck.

Well I've tried it with a different brand and had success. IDK if it the fact that previously I was burning the Audio_TS files along with the Video_TS files or the disc. This time I burned only the Video_TS files.

The problem now is that it plays back fine in WMP but not with my Blu-ray player. It doesn't make noise like before but just tries to load the disc for a minute or so and then ejects it.

Yup. That's next. Maybe I can get a trial version.

ConvertXtoDVD puts a water mark in the middle of the picture. Hardly a free trial. I'd rather have full functionality for a week or two before plunking down $50.

Any other suggestions?

I think the point is to see that it works.

Get a cracked version? Or am I going to get in trouble for saying that?
