View Full Version : k3b burning cd iso into dvd media

9th November 2006, 08:00 PM

I created 2 iso files from some old CDs I had, in them were some movies
that I was able to play by inserting the CD into my CD player in my
lap-top. now I want to move the movie to a dvd instead and play it on
the big screen. so I did

dd if=/dev/hdd of=movi1.iso bs=2048 conv=notrunc
dd if=/dev/hdd of=movi2.iso bs=2048 conv=notrunc

then with k3b and after selecting the file and doing the check sum,
and in the advance I selected Multisession Cd (so that may be I get
the option to include the 2nd movie in the DVD before it closes it).
and I hit burn. it pops up a window saying.

Found media: DVD-R Sequential (empty)
Please insert an empty CD-R(W) medium into drive.

well, I don't want to burn it back to a CD-R(W) but rather a DVD-R,
whats up?

so I hit Force which wrote the file to the DVD.
but did not give me options as to include the 2nd movie. whats up?

the output report is as below

thank you

I'm confused about what you want to do. When you say you want to play the dvd on the "big screen," do you mean in a dvd player? If so, you need to properly master the movie, complete with the VIDEO_TS directory, the IFO files, etc. This is non-trivial especially if the video files are in a different format.

Otherwise, why wouldn't you put everything into a single iso and burn that to a dvd?
