    Copy a DVD program from files – no disk

    by craiggsx ·

    Hi I lost my copy of a training dvd but I have the files that were on the disk. Can these be transferred back to a dvdr so they will play again? Lists of files but no apparent install or play option.

      No. I take it you tried burning it to a Video DVD and it fails so much more detail is required.

        I tried to burn the files but it just copies them without a playable format

          Then a lot more detail is required.

          I don’t know what format your original was or if it was some copy protected thing. Since VLC can’t play the files, then it’s not a normal Video DVD. It’s something else and for now, I don’t see enough detail to guess what it was.

          As it stands, you ask for a replacement copy.

      If you can play those files on your PC from the hard disk (with a program like VLC) you can play them on a PC from any medium you copy them to. But not from your standard DVD-player; that needs a specific format.

        It’s not in a playable format, just separate files.

          If you have all the files, and put them in the right folders and subfolders it might be able to play them with VLC. Check a retail DVD to see how it is organised.
          But maybe it wasn’t a standard video DVD.

          Just yesterday we had a post here from somebody losing 400 GB of images etc, because he had forgotten to make a backup. And now we have a post from a member who forgot to make a backup of a DVD (it takes 10 minutes to make it into an .iso-file you can store as many digital copies of as you want).

          So let me repeat: you only lose what you don’t backup.
