How To Create DVD From BD ISO

    I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I have been trying to create playable DVDs (single layer to be played in car DVD player) from my uncompressed BD ISOs, but haven't been able to get one to work yet. I start by using CloneBD to compress the ISOs down to a SL DVD size ISO (smaller than 4.7GB--confirmed by CloneBD that it will fit). Then I take the newly created ISO to CloneDVD and it burns fine, but the DVD won't play on any DVD player. I have tried this same process using CloneBD to burn directly after compressing the ISO and I've used ImgBurn also, all with the same result. The newly created DVD has 2 folders; BDMV and CERTIFICATE.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    It may be in DVD size, but it is not in DVD format. It is still a BD. For a DVD player to play it, it must be in DVD format (bup, vob, ifo).

    Does your car play Bluray's? If not, ofcourse they won't work. All you are doing is shrinking a bluray to fit on a dvd. It is still a bluray structure. You would have to convert it to DVD format first.

    Thank you for the replies. So, how do I convert it to DVD format? Do I still need to use CloneBD to compress the large ISO file to a smaller ISO (or other file type) before then converting it to DVD format?

    Thanks

    Just because you burn it on a DVD doesn't make or a DVD. It's still a bluray structure. Those types of discs are then called BD5/BD9 depending on the disc used being single or double layer. Not many players support playing that type of disc, and even fewer support them when they have a Java based menu.

    Thank you again for the replies. I have been Google'ing these past few days on how to do this. I hadn't used the word "convert" in my Google searches, rather "how to create"..."how to burn", etc. So, I didn't see any solutions other than using ImgBurn, CloneBD, etc. to make BD to DVD copies. I guess I'm going to need a new program to do this.

    It isn't simple to do but take a look at BD-Rebuilder.

    According to their website, it is playable on ANY DVD player. I don't have that program so I can't say for sure, but that is what VSO claims. The reviewers say they can do it, and do it well. If you don't believe VSO, and your expert opinion says they can't, take it up with them.

    And on that note, I believe I said that earlier in post 2 as to why the OP's CloneBD disc didn't work. Why do you feel the need to chime in needlessly, try to refute what someone said, when what was said was totally accurate and you just read it wrong.

    VSO Blu-ray to DVD converter outputs a compliant DVD. Not really sure how there is any debate here.

    Personally, I'd go with BD Rebuilder.

    That's because the vso software converts it to a VALID DVD structure. Nobody's disputing that. Read my post again. CloneBD can output to a DVD disc, but the file structure is still bluray (bdmv/certificate). That's called a BD5/9 and it NOT playable on all players. Look it up.

    And I know what I'm talking about, I use multiple of their products and translate for them too.

    BD5/9 =/= DVD5/9

    The confusion is that you replied to mmdavis rather than the OP. In doing so you've muddied the water. It appears you are correcting mmdavis and saying that VSO Blu-ray to DVD won't work. It will work.

    The OP wants to output to a real compliant DVD. mmdavis told the user what to use. At this point CloneBD is irrelevant. It won't create a compliant DVD. That isn't being debated. If you mean to correct things the OP says then reply to that person. :)

    I know what I'm talking about, as well, Ch3vr0n. Can we at least acknowledge there is a misunderstanding occurring and why? :)

    I tried BD-Rebuilder, even installed the 2 other packages that were necessary to get it to run. After going through the whole process, I realized BD-Rebuilder doesn't convert to DVD files, only BD5/9/25/50. Nowhere in the output options is there a choice for DVD output. It takes about 2 hours to convert, but only to BD file types.

    BD Rebuilder does, in fact, output to DVD-5/DVD-9. Select Mode > Alternate Movie-Only Output > under Standard Output uncheck Output BD or AVCHD Compliant Structure > under Alternate Output check either DVD-5 or DVD-9 > click Save. Now you will convert a Blu-ray to DVD compliant output.

    Wow, thank you for that answer. I didn't see those instructions in the readme.txt or in any of the online tutorials. Doing a conversion right now. Much appreciated!

    Now that I have the DVD video files (from an uncompressed BD rip) prepared and created by BD-Rebuilder, is there an advantage to burning to DVD using ImgBurn over something like CloneDVD? I wanted to use ImgBurn (because it has some integration with BD-Rebuilder), but I couldn't figure out which settings to use in the Options tab (Data Type and File System), so I'm burning with CloneDVD right now...which doesn't seem to have as many settings and options.

    If you have properly configured imgburn, it can auto-correct incorrect settings. The only thing that really matters for DVD's is UDF 1.02 the rest can be taken from the folder name, and even the UDF file system Imgburn can correct if needed.

    Advantage? None, if the size is already proper (DVD 9 or DVD 5). If you mistakingly set bdrb to dvd9 and wanted DVD 5 then you could use Cdvd to shrink again to DVD 5, or simply do the job in bdrb again

    Thank you. The burn worked fine using CloneDVD and plays in the van's DVD player (which is why I've been trying to burn DVD-ROMs so they play more seamlessly in the van rather than skipping like some of my DVD-R burns have done).

    But just to understand you better, do you mean that you don't need to adjust the default settings in ImgBurn to burn a DVD movie? Leave it set to Data Type: MODE1/2048 (instead of changing it to MODE2/FORM1)...and leave the File System as ISO9660 + Joliet (instead of changing to one of the 3 UDF settings)?

    Thanks again

    The Joliet one is for CD's. DVD's use UDF 1.02. Imgburn would detect incorrect current configuration and ask if you want it to correct them. I've got my imgburn so configured that it doesn't even ask anymore. It just corrects when needed in a split second and the starts burning.

    As to the skipping, that's probably more due to lousy quality blanks. The DVD-ROM mark (which imgburn can set just as much as Cdvd) only affects very old players before they were recent enough to play DVD+R and can only be set on +R media and if the drive supports setting it. -R doesn't support booktype setting

    The DVD skipping is really my main dilemma right now. At home we've switched completely over to BD viewing and don't use DVDs anymore. When we take the kids out in the car, that's when we use the DVDs in the car's player. With original DVDs, they play fine all the way through (until the kids scratch them up), but with my DVD copies they seem to be iffy. Usually they'll play fine for the first 30-60 minutes, it seems that usually around that point the DVD will start to skip or not make it to the end of the movie.

    That's why I bought Verbatim DVD+R media and even though I haven't been able to change the booktype of my Asus (DRW-24F1ST c1.01) DVD burner in ImgBurn, when I check a burned disc with ImgBurn it shows (under the "Physical Format Information (Last Recorded)" that my Book Type is DVD-ROM). So I suppose that this Asus drive is set by default to DVD-ROM (though the fact that in ImgBurn at the top it always says "Current Profile: DVD+R" and "Physical Format Information (ADIP)" also Book Type: DVD+R, only in the "Last Recorded" does it show as DVD-ROM).

    Today I took the kids out and played the new DVD I burned last night (at 2x speed with CloneDVD) (which I created from an uncompressed BD file). It played fine as we got in and out of the car multiple times. As we got home, it was around the hour mark of the movie and it started skipping a little bit, not enough to stop the movie, but 2 or 3 times it skipped right as we pulled in. So, I'm curious to know if this movie will play till the end, or if my burn process is still not good enough for the very touchy car DVD player.

    Thanks
