  how to add files to a movie dvd 
 Date Written 
Juan Pena Mar 26, 2014, 06:40pm EDT Report Abuse
hello all,

and, as always, thanks in advance for your comments and helpful help.

This is my situation:

I used a video camera, a sony unit that records onto a dvd with a dvd structure (audio, video folders), to record an oral presentation at the university today. I put the dvd into my dvd player, recording runs well, no problem.

I can burn the files onto a dvd disk and play it in any dvd player, computer or otherwise. No problem there.

Here is what I want to achieve. During the presentation, the speaker run some video files and a powerpoint presentation. The camera recorded both but it was some far away and you can hardly make out either. So I would like to record, maybe in a separate folder, the video and ppt files, onto the same disk with the audio/video files.

Do I make myself clear?

I have burned a couple of disks trying to achieve that but I have not managed.

Any help will be appreciated.

Again, thanks.

Seems like you could add them as a separate group of movie "chapters" and extend the main menu.

There are/were a couple of freeware/donateware programs on majorgeeks that claimed to be able to do that kind of thing. But, to use them, you do have to know how to setup the file structure for movie DVDs...which it sound like you do. I did successfully use one to do something very similar quite some time ago, but I can't remember which one it was...just that it can be done.

In the past I found these websites very helpful for editing home and business DVD and CD projects both in pointing me to software and learning about DVD file structures. (see the "Video Edit Software" section)

I am sure that there will be an option to add those video files onto your DVD. I have some experience with NERO and i just insert the dvd into the drive and sit back. It reads the dvd and gives me options such as add files. Well, i cannot add an entire folder through it. But i can add other video files, if my DVD has space in it, which is already show by the software in one of its features.

So, please may i know which software did you use to burn the files on your present dvd?

I think you can get a AppGeeker program to convert your PPT documents to a video files, and then burn the original recorded videos and the converted videos from PPT onto disc.

Hello all,
and again, thanks for the replies.

Actually, what I did was to edit the original recording, cut it when the projected video started playing, then inserted the original video file, and then resumed the rest of the original recorded video file. It was a lot of work, but I think it panned out well.

When I have some free time, I will try your suggestions anyhow.

Again, thanks,
