Hello everyone,

I'm facing a problem that i get a video cd from my friend to make a copy for my own, but unfortunately at that time i don't have any blank dvd at home. All what i did is that i copy whole the dvd to my hard drive.
Now i buy a new blank dvd and copy all the files from my hard drive to that DVD, Now that DVD is working on my PC but not in my DVD Player. Whenever i insert my DVD to the player it gives error "Unknow Format". :(
what to do now?
I'm Nero 8.x user, is there any option to make a DVD which will accessable to any player/system? or can i change the format of that DVD so that it work on player?

PS: I want to know other option beside of copying dvd to dvd because i have still that data on my hard drive and i want to make a dvd from that.

Thanks in advance.

It's because you burned the DVD as data, so it works on your PC but not on a standalone DVD player.

To burn folders of video files that are on your hard drive, use IMGburn. Before starting, make sure there is also an AUDIO_TS folder along with your VIDEO_TS folder (create a new one if there isn't already a folder--it can be empty). For the rest, just follow this tutorial: http://www.gromkov.c...q2004-0026.html
