2 Questions: What is Root menu, and DVD menu issues

Postby Aaron1988 » Wed Apr 02, 2008 12:52 am

2 Questions.

1) What is root menu.

2) When I play the DVD on my player and pressed "Disc Menu", the menu template appears, there are option for Chapter, Play, and Menu, what I want to ask is why in the menu, those videos didn't stated what chapter it is? All of them just arrange accordingly from top to bottom.

I burn 30 videos into the DVD, it's kinda hard for me to know which chapter it is, as it did not stated its page number and chapter number.

Hi,

Title Menu
------------

Video 01
Video 02
Video 03
-----------> Root Menu of Video 3
----------------------------> Chapter Menu (Video 03)
---------------------------------> Chapter 01 (at 05:00)
---------------------------------> Chapter 02 (at 10:00)
---------------------------------> Chapter 03 (at 15:00)
....................... Play
....................... Menu (Return To Title Menu)

Some DVD Player remote use the word "Root Menu" but it refers to the Title Menu on the DVD, and sometimes just "Menu" refers to the Root Menu on the DVD.

For your second question, it looks like you'll have to select the 6 chapter per page template. I don't see any text etc. in the 10 chapter selection preview.

So do you mean the Root Menu just simply same as the Title Menu? The second question I understand already, is the template problem I selected.

So, how can we download more templates? And, am I able to edit burnt DVD? Example like I have burnt DVD, but hope to edit it to enable Auto-start playback, since I disable when I burn or changing menu template. Is it possible? Or do I have to redo everything again?

In the CX2D3 program itself (or the 3 page menu's that show up on your screen) the order would be:
1st page=Title menu
2nd page=Root menu
3rd page=Chapters menu

As of now there are no templates to download and add to the selections.
WYSIWYG
And you have redo everything with the Auto-start playback enabled. There are programs that can re-edit your DVD's (R's-ripped back on the HD or RW's-straight to disc) but the Auto start playback is not one of their editing features.

EDIT: Ooops, looks like you DON'T have to redo everything by using the programs toaddub has listed. Hadn't seen those yet... THANX toaddub! :)

You don't have to start from the beginning. You can simply edit the DVD, after ripping to HD, with a change of command in First Play PGC using PgcEdit or DvdReMake Pro.
