How do I burn a 2.5GB VOB onto a DVD-R ??

Hi all,

I have my AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS files. There is only 1 VOB file which is about 2.5GB in size.

When I try to burn to DVD with Nero Smart, I get a message saying the VOB is too big for DVD-Video format

What settings/software do I need to use to get the DVD to be playable on a standalone DVD player ?

Regards,

Adam Brunt

What created the VOB file? Normaly VOB's are split into 0.99GB chunks. To burn it to dvd just as a file (mine are normaly mpegs over 2GB from Tv recordings \ home movies) I have allways changed the dvd file format to UDF disk format. This I doubt would play in a DVD player.

Splitting the file looks like the one - I didn't see that option the last time I created the file.

Oh, and Dan, it is one big AVI captured from the DV Camcorder ... couldn't be bothered to break it down into smaller chunks for my first test.

You can use ImgTool it is free and very easy to use.

However, you actually have to have a version of Nero installed, as it uses the Nero API, but you can use the demo version.

Cheers, David

DVDShrink will split the output .vobs into 1GB chunks, and doesn't need Nero installed.

DVDShrink needs a proper DVD-Video structure which a single VOB file does not make. There needs to be the associated IFO and BUP files too.

Your best bet would be to rename the file to .mpg and get IFOEdit to create a proper DVD-Video structure for the file and then Nero will accept it. Alternatively, get the demo version of TMPGEnc DVD Author (which will also burn the disk).

The reason Nero is complaining is because you are trying to compile a DVD with a file structure it does not understand.

Is this a avi file or a .vob? I thought .vob was a mpeg created as a dvd compatable file?
Then again I may be wrong.
