Making Data Discs : Making a DVD-ROM (UDF) Disc
Making a DVD-ROM (UDF) Disc
This type of disc can be used on a Macintosh or a Windows computer; if it contains valid DVD-Video content, it can also be used in a set-top DVD player. This disc format is best if you have a VIDEO_TS folder and wish to add additional DVD-ROM data content.
If you have a VIDEO_TS folder and you wish to create a DVD-Video (and optionally compress the folder to fit on a DVD), you should use the VIDEO_TS Folders format. See Making a DVD From VIDEO_TS Folders.
* To make a DVD-ROM disc
1 In Toast, choose Burn tab, and in the Burn Data area, choose DVD-ROM (UDF).
2 In the Output Settings area, type a title, set a destination, and specify the number of copies.
3 Drag-and-drop a valid VIDEO_TS folder into the Content Area from your hard disk.
Toast will automatically add an empty AUDIO_TS folder to the disc at burn time for improved compatibility with set-top DVD players.
4 Double-click the small disc icon under the word DVD-ROM at the top of the Content Area to rename the disc. By default, the UDF disc will be named MY_DISC.
5 Insert a blank, recordable DVD.
Note: You can also insert a blank, recordable CD to create a miniDVD. This type of disc has far less capacity than a DVD and will not play in your set-top DVD player, but should play in your Mac or PC.
6 Click the red Burn button.
7 Click Record to continue.
Toast displays a progress bar and status information as it records your disc. The disc is recorded with UDF version 1.0.2.
