OS X :: Copy Dual Layer DVD Via Network Cable And 2 Macs?

Dec 10, 2009

I've got a handful of dual layer DVDs of which I'd like 1 copy of each.

To save time I wondered if I could plug my machine to my mate's machine via a network cable, with the original DVD in one mac, a blank in the other, and just hit 'Copy' in Toast?

AFAIK the write machine can only do 8 speed - would the data throughput via the network cable be fast enough for this?

If not, any way of doing it via Firewire?

OS X :: Copy Two DVD's To One Dual Layer DVD?

Oct 11, 2009

Alright, I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for by searching so I figured I'd ask. I think it should be fairly simple.

I have a pair of DVD's that were made a few years back. They contain a couple hours of footage from an event. Too much to put on one single layer DVD so it got split over 2.

What I'd like to do is copy both intact DVDs. But I much prefer now at this time to do this on one dual layer DVD for simplicity. All I have is the two DVD's which have simple menus and the footage. Ideally, I would like to be able to keep everything, and maybe put one simple menu on top to select between part 1 and part 2.

So what are my options? I do have FCS1 and the latest iLife setup. Not much more. I just don't know the best way to set up and burn this project.

Mac Pro :: Burning Dual Layer DVD+Rs Crashes OS X?

Jan 24, 2008

Thats basically the problem in a nut shell. I can't seem to burn a DVD+R DL, everytime I attempt to do this the system crashes completely and I get the transparent window telling me to restart the system. To me, this feels a lot like the blue screen of death.

Anyone else having a similar problem? Have there been similar problems reported? Its definitely not the discs either, I've tried using Philips and Memorex DVD+R DLs and neither work, however, burning this stuff on Tiger was fine, however I'm not sure if Leopard is to blame because i dont remember if I had burned any DVD+R DLs successfully using Leopard.

I've got a first gen. Mac Pro with a PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D.

MacBook Pro :: Trying To Burn A .cdr File To A Dual Layer Dvd Using Disk Utility?

Jun 28, 2010

I have been trying to burn a .cdr file to a dual layer dvd using Disk Utility. I got it to work once, but I tried four times. I think that it must be very sensitive or something, because I can't figure out any other factor that affects it.

Has anybody else run into this problem, and if so, what's your solution? I think it may have to do with vibrations of the disk drive or something, but I would be lying if I said I knew that for sure...

Software :: Computer Taking DVDR As Dual Layer Disk

Apr 23, 2009

I am trying to copy a DVDR recorded on a friend's DVD recorder. The disc is a single layer 4.7Gb TDK DVD+R and I'm using Toast Titanium. The problem is that my computer thinks the DVD+R is a dual layer disc. I say the computer rather than Toast because if I open the disc and copy the VIDEO_TS folder to the hard drive it takes up more than 10Gb, which is impressive since the disc it is copied from only has a 4Gb capacity! I have googled this but failed to find a solution.

Applications :: Dual Layer DVDs And Want To Burn The Same Small Movie On Both Layers?

Oct 4, 2009

This is a pretty basic question. iDVD

I have dual layer DVDs and want to burn the same small movie on both layers, one would be full screen, the other wide screen so the viewer can choose.

Is this possible? Is it just a matter of burning one movie at a time; will the comp recognize which layer is empty after the first burn?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Network - Can't Login To Network Macs As Registered User

Feb 20, 2012

Have recently done a clean install of Lion onto a Mac Pro that was running Snow Leopard. Upgradede to 10.7.3  The Lion Mac sits on an office network of several macs running Snow Leopard and a Network Shared HDD.  In order to gain quick full access to the other computers we have been using "connect as" then inputting the macs registerred user administrator details, we were able us access to the full Mac and it's currently mounted hard drives. Since installing Lion I can see and fully access the network share which only uses guest access, see the Other macs in finder, add to their drop boxes but not connect as a registerred user to access one of the snow Leopard machines.  I get a pop up. Spinning wheel, and eventually a timeout. Can't even cancel this action as it comes up greyed out. Oddly the other macs can still log into the Lion machine. No joy so far toggling network preferrences and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a setting I have missed, So far have had not joy looking online or playing in seeing why it would now not be able to connect as before.

OS X Mavericks :: Dock Keeps Switching On Macs With Dual Monitors

Dec 8, 2014

I have 2 monitors on my computers - 2 Mac Pros (2011) and an iMac.  All are running 10.10.1. I have one monitor in each case that is the "home" monitor - with the dock and files on the desktop.  All 3 of my computers keep switching the Dock to the other monitor. Once switched, the Dock stays on the other monitor until I use system preferences to change the arrangement. It started for me with OS 10.9

Mac Pro :: Get Sound From Dual Link Dvi Cable?

Feb 19, 2012

I just bought a Dual Link DVI to HDMI cable. From what I know I will be able to get sound out of of this set up. However, I cannot fingure out how to get sound via HDMI.  

There is no such option when I went to sound preference, unline when I was using a minidisplay port to HDMI adapter where I could hear sound on my HDTV via HDMI.  

If I could get sound out of dual link dvi to hdmi cable, what do I need to do in order to get the sound working via HDMI instead of Analog Line Out.  

I was frustrated because the minidisplay port/adapter does not work for bootcamp, so I went out and bought dual link dvi to hdmi cable instead. Graphic is as great as HDMI, but I could not figure out how to get the sound via hdmi while using this setup.
