I found a simple workaround for the autoplay/no menues feature. Just make a DVD-RW with menues. Then use DVD-DeCryper/Shrink/Nero - whatever to make an autoplay DVD onto a permanent disc. It works well.
Here is my latest crazy problem: How to get really long playing time. I know I can make high qualitye DVD-A's up to 3 hours using Minatonka Bronze. Unfortunately, DVD-A discs are worthless as they cannot play in 90% of DVD players, but they prove the time point.
I have three 48 kHz files that I created in Adobe Audion. The were 1.599, 0.911, and 0.974 GBs in size. That added up to 3.480. The playing time is about 2:30 Hours; quite a bit less than 3 hours. I tried burning a DVD with these, audio-files-only. I checked lowest quality video, used no video, and got an Export To DVD error that I had "insufficient" space on the 4.7 GB disc! So, I used the two latter files, which added to only 1.884 GB. Premiere did not baulk, and it successfully burned a DVD that played. Then I added the 1.599 GB file, and, once again, it produced an error. This was clearly not going to work.
At this point, I realized that Audition had done what it liked to do: It had saved the 16 bit-48 kHz files as 32 bit-48 kHz! So, I went back to Audition and used EDIT to change the files to genuine 16 bit-48 kHz files. When I opened them in Premiere, Premiere reported 16 bit-48 kHz files. Their sizes were now, 0.799, 0.456, and 0.487 GB. Please note that this totals 1.742 GB. This is less than the 1.884 GB I had successfully used before. Once again, I was getting the "inssufficient" space error. This is nuts. The disc can hold 4.3+ GB, but won't fit 1.742.GB.
So, anybody got some ideas?
