Need help making Despecialized Edition DVDs
Time

Bazinga! I was trying to use BD-REs or simple DVD-Rs. I went out and bought some DVD-R DLs and it worked! My new Blu-ray player plays AVCHD so I’m all set! Thanks Jonno!

What size are your iso files? If they’re around the 7-8GB mark, they’re AVCHD images, i.e. HD video designed to be burned to (and played from) a dual-layer DVD-R disc.

(The AVCHD format uses the same file structure as Blu-rays - hence the BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders - but at a size that means you don’t need a Blu-ray burner or disc. You do, however, need an AVCHD-compatible Blu-ray player to view the result).

That all being the case, your Superdrive should be able to burn those iso files to dual-layer blank DVDs. I don’t know Mac software, though - presumably Toast (or whatever) can open an iso to burn to disc? If it can do that, it doesn’t need to know what the actual content is - it’ll just burn those bits.

Ah! That makes a lot more sense! Ok so I’m on a OSX v10.12.6 using Toast Titanium 11 with the HD plugin. I think most of my problem is deciphering what Toast is asking me! So I need to aim for using a DVD-R in dual layer rather than burning to a BD-RE. No wonder it keeps spitting it out! Thanks, Jonno. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Jonno,

Firstly, thank you for pointing me to the right thread.
So I don’t have any MKV files. Episodes V and VI are .iso files containing a file called BDMV (which I believe is an AVCHD file) and a certificates folder. Episode IV is just the BDMV. I realise I would need an external Blu-ray burner to write to a Blu-ray output but I thought a SuperDrive could still burn to an AVCHD disc. Is this wrong? I can’t find anything to suggest that Superdrive will burn to a BD. I think I’m getting tangled up in terminology.

Thanks

The first rule of MySpleen...
Time

Hi guys,
As you can see this is only my second post. I’ve been pottering around the forum with interest. Ok yep, I’m on FIVE YEARS LATE in learning about Harmy’s DE but when I did I was blown away! I have the AVCHD 2.7 version of IV (I think) and am currently downloading the V and VI via Harmy’s Uloz.to site. But my GOD, they’re taking forever! So I started looking into the private torrents to see if that might be quicker and I’m now petrified to even ask what the latest is with private torrent for Harmy’s DEEPs. I’m not allowed to ask for an invite for <mumbles>MySpleen</mumbles> but the posts regarding this date back to 2012. I’m new but not a ‘Hit and Runner’, if I can help to share these masterpieces responsibly with proper fans, I’d like to.

What’s the latest, guys? Is Uloz.to my only option?

Thanks.

Can someone please provide me with a guide on how to put my DE files on a disc?

Hey guys! I’m in exactly the same position. Only recently discovered the Harmy Project and downloaded Episode IV this week as a full film. I absolutely LOVED watching it with my young son on our Mac but he now wants to see it on the TV with all the sound. We only have an old DVD player and a SuperDrive. I’m really confused with terms like AVCHD, .MTV etc.
I plan to buy a Blu Ray Player with AVCHD compatibility and then burn the film onto a BD using something like Toast or similar. Is this correct? My knowledge of Blu Ray formatting is completely absent so any guidance you can give me and the original author would be great. Thanks.
