    DVD burner suggestions
    MacProVideo, I haven't been overly impressed with the way iDVD saves projects, because I have had to re-do the menus and re-render everytime I burn another copy of a movie. Sooo, I AM LOOKING FOR THE BEST SOLUTION TO BURN HOME MADE MOVIES FROM DVD TO DVD. NOTE: The worse part is when I put in a DVD I made and it comes up as seperate Video and Audio files (.ifo, .vbo's or something). Do I have to match those Audio and Video files up, re-copy them on to my computer, and then burn with iDVD?

    Hi Blakeout, iDVD burns your DVD this way because every commercial DVD contains at least 2 main directories : AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS... and the .VBO (Video Object File). You can choose File > Save as Disc Image and use Disk Utility or Toast to burn as many copies as you wish. You could also copy the content of your DVD to your HD, and drag it back into Toast (under VIDEO_TS) to burn it. Take care!

    Thanks Christian, I haven't been able to try this yet. Will this copy the menus and settings as well? It's super important that I get the menus exactly the same, because one of them loops over and over again so I need to make sure it will continuously loop on the new dvd as well.

    I ended up just dropping the video_ts and audio_ts into the burn folder, burned dvd and it works perfect. Hmm...is Toast a premium DVD architect software, or do you have another recommendation? thanks
