Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I’ve looked and can’t find anything. I’ve just received my new PWT and have a hi-res album on my NAS, all tracks in WAV format, that I want to copy to DVD to play. I know these WAV files are ok because I can successfully play them via the Bridge in the DS.
I’m using an old Windows laptop running Vista. When I put a new DVD in the drive it prompts me to format it, which I do at USF 2.00. I then drag and drop the files into the root directory of the DVD, no cover art just music files, and it apparently copies it successfully to the DVD.
However, when I try to play it in the PWT it tries to read it and then gives the eorror message “invalid disk”. I’ve tried it on 2 DVD Rs, both exactly the same.
I’ve then followed the “how to” article for Vista, but the free NERO software is apparently limited to file sizes of 100M or less - The hi res files are all bigger than 100M so need to upgrade to a paid version of the software to copy bigger files. However, rather than pay for the software, I’d rather purchase a SuperDrive USD DVD drive for my MacBook as I understand you can just drag and drop successfully without special software (unless I want to create a compilation).
Any suggestions as to what I’m doing wrong? Is there a particular type of DVD I need to use, or does drag and drop on Vista simply not work for this requirement?
Many thanks, Mike.
