There is much I don't know and answers to ANY of the below questions would be greatly appreciated:

 

Firstly, over the years collected numerous burning and converting programs (IMGBurn, Inrfarecorder, Burnaware, AnySoft,  Wondershare DVD Maker, WinX, ConvertXtoDVD, ImToo, etc).

 

1) What's the difference between an ISO and an IMG file?

 

2) Took DVD-R video of family event a while back. for some reason saved as .mp4 on laptop. Wanted to make a few new DVD's to share with family. Used Wondershare as it offers cute adjustable menu screens.

     It burned the mp4 into DVD quality. However, I have 2 DVD players. One and old Samsung DVD-V2500 DVD/VHS and a slightly newer Funai VCR/DVD Recorder (ZV427FX4).

    The finished DVD played well on the Funai but could not load on the Samsung. Spoke with Wondershare, suggested I convert to ISO first then retry.  Unfortunately same results.

 

Any idea why? I happened to like the ability to personalize the Intro/menu screen in Wondershare.

 

3) Which brings me to the last question- When I used Wondershare to to just save  MP4 as ISO, the result was and ISO file AND a folder with the Audio_TS/Video_TS folders as well. Why both. Where do I go from there? Do I use the ISO, selected files in video_TS only ????  Or either one?

 

Thanks for your patience.

I think the older Samsung cd/dvd circuit board could not "figure out" and read the "foreign format" [user-created DVD].

To me, it's similar to a Ford automotive computer trying to read and work with a Chevy engine, transmission, etc.

Thanks for the quick reply, RolandJS.

 

Will check out link.  Comment about Samsung makes sense.
