Have you tried changing the ".iso" filename extension to ".img"?
Yes. Maybe I did something wrong but when it prompted me for a file name I over-wrote the mydvd.iso to read mydvd.img. The resulting file read mydvd.img.iso.
Encore automatically adds the .iso suffix - whatever the filename is.
I would suggest to go to Windows Explorer / My Computer and remove the ".iso" part so that the name reads "mydvd.img". Don't know if it will solve your problem, but it could be that the software is simply confused by the .iso extension.
Ok, thanks. I'll try that. I also read more postings last night that mentioned that if I have Copy-Restrictions, or Geo-Zone restrictions on the project (which I do) it may cause some problems too. I'm going to play with that a bit this AM and see if it takes care of the problem. Again, thanks.
You can't use any form of Copy Protection on
media - this can only be applied to replicated media via DLT tape.
Geographical zoning should not make any difference.....
Thanks. I am all set now. This is all very helpfull. Sorry for the delayed reply - its flu season in Michigan.
"...Copy Protection on written media - this can only be applied to replicated media via DLT tape"
I have read elsewhere on the forum (maybe in the FAQs) that it IS possible to write a copy protection flagged file set to DVD-ROM (data) to send to a replication house and that DLT is no longer the only way to transport the files... is this not accurate?
Most replication houses only take DLT, but some are now accepting DVD-ROMs. I'm about to try it for the first time using Encore 2.0 (for a DVD5) and am getting a little nervous about this ambiguity.
The rep house asks for settings as:
MacroVision Type 2
burned as UDF
What would be truly nice would be to find a CURRENT Adobe web page that answers this definitively. Anybody know for sure?
You may have read No DLT Machine?
The ambiguity probably stems from the mix-up of DVD-Data and DVD-Video discs. For many people a "DVD" automatically means "DVD-Video", a disc that can be played in a set top DVD player. But a DVD can also contain any kind of data, which is how it as used when it replaces a DLT tape. The DVD-Data disc that you would give to the replicator as the master can not be played in any set top player.
It looks like your replication house will accept DDP images on DVD-ROM.
You will need to go & buy an application that is capable of creating said DDP images.
GEAR Pro Mastering Edition will do just this.
