How do I copy a DVD using Discribe? - Three methods.
There are three ways to copy a DVD using Discribe. Note: You cannot author or create a DVD using Discribe. You need a separate authoring program to convert the MPEG, AVI or other video files into DVD format.
A. CD/DVD Copy. (Easiest Method) This method is probably the easiest of the three. If you already have a master DVD burned this option is best. Simply choose the “Copy a CD/DVD” option in the main menu. Setup the rest of the job as you would with a normal Disc-to-Disc copy job. Select the drive with the master DVD as the reader drive and the drive in the Bravo as the Recorder drive. Select Robot Write. For a complete description of this process see this article.
B. Image. Use the Disc Image Method described in this article.
C. DVD Video/Audio. (Best Method) This method is useful if you have DVD files already authored and in the correct format on your Hard Drive. It is also useful to copy DVDs that failed to copy using the CD/DVD Copy method. This method assumes you have used your DVD authoring software to create Audio_TS and Video_TS folders with the proper files formatted in each -or- that you have copied these folders from an existing master DVD onto your Hard Drive. A Video_TS folder must be at the root of any DVD. Inside the Video_TS folder are specific DVD files shown below that are created by your authoring software.
There are many variables involved in a DVD duplication job that can affect the quality of the copy or whether the copy is successfully recorded. The following are a few of the variables to keep in mind with duplicating DVDs. Any one of these can affect whether a DVD successfully records.
Note: Many of these variables can be eliminated by using the DVD Video/Audio Job method described above.
