Applying search facilities on DVD's

  23790954 12:26 19 May 2008

Hi there,
As an elderly person, I spend most of my time on my computer, learning different projects, which I enjoy. I have just transferred several of my favourite music tracks onto DVD, which I have played in my dvd player, with excellent results.
However I would like to be able to use the search facility of my DVD player to select the track I want to view, and view it, without going through the whole DVD again. Is it possible to make such a DVD and if so, how do I go about it.
I use NERO 7 for burning the DVD's
ALSO after using a re-writable dvd disc, how do you clear the information from it, so that you can use it again.

Hi first the RW you just erase it then use it again. As for selection ability I use a programme called audio dvd creator .That makes an actual dvd with menu and chapters showing track titles etc., Playable on a stand alone player as well as pc Not a data dvd with just the tracks on it Its not free and the working trial allows only a few tracks but you will be able to see what it does with that.It is very straight forward to use click here

Thanks for that eedcam,
I found a process of wiping the re-writable disc clean. However I have downloaded and installed the easy DVD creator you recommended above, and have tried to load the files for burning, without success. I have tried these files in 2 different file types, but each time I go into the folder containg the files, My Documents/my videos, it does not show any of the files to drop and drag. I can play these file on my computer, so theres no problem with the files.
Can you tell me the best file system to convert these files to, in order that I can make a project on the software.
Thanks very much for your help.
