I have been trying to burn my Despecialized editions to DVD, but can never get it right. I think I may be using the wrong DVD type, I threw away the label, but i think they were DVD RW. Edit: The AVCHD versions of the movie
Can you provide me with like a guide on what to do in the program? I have never used it before.
I am in the process of making DVD’s of the Despecialized Editions, and I want subtitles as an option with them. I am downloading all the necessary files now from The Ultimate Introductory Guide, but have not burned to the DVD yet. I have SRT files with Subs that work with my MKV versions, so I assume these will work with this version. Just would like to know what to do when I am going about burning the disks to include the subs. I plan on using IMGBurn when making the DVDs.
I have had my files for the Despecialized Editions on my laptop for about a year now, and I have never figured out how to put them on a disc. I have tried simply burning them to blank DVD’s and that didn’t work, so I am left clueless. They are MKV files. I have heard the whole “use img burn”, but no guide on how to actually do it. I would prefer to put them on DVD’s as it is more cost effective for me, but i am willing to try a Blu Ray version, I do not currently have a Blu Ray player other than my Xbox One, and do not have a BR Burner. I’m not the most tech smart person when it comes to this. but I really want to get this done, if any one could please help me through this, I would really appreciate it.
What do you refer to the 1981 release as?
Still just Star Wars. It makes things easier to refer to the versions before the Special Editions as such.
What exactly did the error say? What kind of disc are you burning to?
I get a different one every time try it. I get one at 99% that says it can’t finish the disk. I am using blank DVD’s I bought a while back, can’t remember what type it was. When I take the disk out of my computer’s tray after attempting to burn, it is obvious on the back that there is something written to it, but when I insert it into my Xbox it get something along the lines of “This disk can not be played”.
Yes, that’s the folder structure for a Blu-ray (or AVCHD) disc.
The next step is to make sure both BDMV and CERTIFICATE are in a main folder (make one if you need to, e.g. ‘Star Wars DeEd’).
When you open ImgBurn, use the ‘Write files/folders to disc’ option. Then select that main folder to burn - ImgBurn will know from the structure that it’s meant to be a playable disc.
So I did all that, but ImgBurn would go all the way through the process, but at 99% would give me an error and say it didn’t work. One time it finished, and stuck it in my Xbox One to check and it wouldn’t play.
If you want to keep it HD, and use your Xbox One for playback, you’ll need to make a properly formatted Blu-ray or AVCHD disc.
Load the MKV into tsMuxeR and have it build you a Blu-ray or AVCHD folder, then burn that to a disc (BD-R or DL DVD-R respectively) with ImgBurn.
If you want to use your DVD player (and it doesn’t have MKV or AVCHD support) you’ll need to completely rebuild each film as a standard def DVD. Last I checked, ConvertXtoDVD was a decent all-in-one tool for doing that.
So I did the tsMuxeR and it came out with a whole bunch of different files and folders. Do I just put all of it into one folder and burn that? It came out with two folders BMDV and CERTIFICATE. BMDV contains 5 different folders.
What device are you planning on playing this disc on?
DVD players and on my Xbox One
I always just refer to the 1977 release as Star Wars, and the 1997 “Special” Edition as A New Hope.
LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy went on a podcast during Star Wars Celebration 2017, and was asked about the potential for a release of the Unaltered Original Trilogy. She replied: "“I wouldn’t touch those, are you kidding me? [laughs] Those will always remain his (George Lucas).”
Edit by moderator: For the purpose of clarity - Kathleen Kennedy was talking about not changing the Special Editions of the Original Trilogy any further. She was NOT referring to the OOT.
This article, for example, gives a more accurate representation of what she said - and was pertaining to:-
It won’t let me just burn the file to a blank. Never done this before, so more detailed replies would be helpful.
I have files for Star Wars, Empire, and Jedi. They are in MKV format. I have tried burning the files to a blank DVD, but that doesn’t seem to work. I have never done this before, so I need help. I don’t know what to do, so if someone could guide me through this I would really appreciate it. The more detailed the better.
