How to convert a "VCDHD" disc into a DVD or similar - keeping all menus etc

  PC_HelpMe 23:10 PM 27 May 12

Hi folks,

Is there any way I can convert a VCDHD disc that I have into a DVD disc or similar? The VCDHD disc has menus that come up and I want to retain them if possible. I know I can't just "copy" the disc as it will copy another VCDHD. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated on if this can be done and, if so, what software I can use.

Thanks for reading.

Hi and thanks for your reply. My disc does say vcdhd - but if that is the same I will try your link.

I believe that VCDHD refers to the type of disc and not the format of data written on it. Use Windows Explorer to determine the format of the video. I believe a straight copy will be OK.

Unless your disc explores as as a Video _ts folder you cant. Also the size of the file should tell you you can only get about 15 mins or so of avchd on a dvd

Hi everyone, well I feel a tad stupid.

I checked via "My Computer" what the disc says when in the laptop, and it calls it a "DVD". However, I tried to just do a straight copy using Nero 8 and it "failed to read" the disc. I guess I at least know it is a DVD disc then?

Thanks for your help and advice. Very much appreciated.
