Windows 7: DVD RAM VIDEO to DVD+RW Video for DVD player

DVD RAM VIDEO to DVD+RW Video for DVD player

Hi there
I have some DVD's recorded on a bog standard Panasonic DVD / Hard Disk Video recorder. I've been using DVD-RAM disks in LP mode 2 movies per disc.

I'd like to copy these to a DVD+RW so someone else can play the movies on their Video recorder which doesn't support DVD-RAM.

Do I need to Author the DVD+RW disk or can I just copy the folders from the DVD-RAM disk to the DVD+RW disk.

Any special software needed or will bog standard NERO etc do it.

(There is an "elephantine" way I can do this -- copy the DVD-RAM movies (in LP mode I usually have 2 per disc) back to the DVD recorders internal hard disk and then re-copy to DVD+RW where it will "finalize and create top level menus" but this is going to take approx 4 hrs per disk).


Cheers

jimbo

TmpGenc works well to convert RAM format. You need to copy the DVD_RTAV folder on your ram disk to your hard drive,then use tmpgenc dvd author (select create new project, add dvd, tmpgenc will recognise the RTAV folder as a dvd) and you can then reauthor it into VOB files etc, then burn as a normal dvd.

Theres a guide here.

Converting DVD-RAM Recordings To DVD-R @ The Digital Recorder

Of course tmpgenc is a time barred trial, unless you already have a license. There may also be other apps that can do the job equally well.

Thanks that works a treat.

I can create the stuff on a Virtual Machine during the time barring period -- thyen just re-install on another VM after expiration. (VM's are VERY useful for this type of stuff).

Works a treat just tried it.

Can't play the movie on the VM of course but the autthoring works fine.

Repped you + 1.

Thanks

Thanks. Glad it worked well for you. I no longer feel energetic enough to encode video but I played around with a lot of tools while i was at it and tmpgenc is a favourite.

Hi there. I'm looking for a video player that can divide videos into smaller scenes (like every 15 or 30 sec) so that they serve as previews and lets you seek to the part you want. Note that it doesn't really split the video; it just does it on the spot for previewing purposes. This technique was...
