Using PD 16, I always had a problem creating a DVD. Even though I choose the option "Read only the selected chapter" the DVD never returns to the DVD main menu. It continues reading all the following chapters. I know it's not a problem from burning process since I have the problem when I check with the "Preview" before burning the DVD.

I thought it was a bug in PD16, so I upgraded to 17 version, but the problem still there. Maybe I do something wrong. If you know the solution, I would appreciate you let me know.

Thanks The only thing I know about life is that I know nothing...

There is no such option as you quote about selected chapter. The "Playback Mode Settings", which you might be referring to, only deals with titles, not chapters. Multiple titles are created by importing multiple videos or pds projects into the content tab.

Thank you Jeff. I will modify my pds projects to get multiple titles. I work with the french version, so maybe, I misundertand titles and chapter. The only thing I know about life is that I know nothing...

This very old thread walked you graphically through the difference with description, https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/7497.page#post_box_30591 Even though 9+ yrs old, it's essentially still the same, other than the one anomaly noted was corrected.

Hi jakobigfoot -

While Jeff was efficiently explaining what that menu option means, I was wasting a few minutes making a screen capture to show you that it works with titles, not chapters.



Don't worry - you're not the first person to be confused by that.

Cheers - Tony

Thank you to all of you. Your explanations were very clear and your references were very relevant. So now, my understanding on how to create a DVD or a disc is much better than before. I brought some corrections to my DVD and it works the way I wished.
Thanks again The only thing I know about life is that I know nothing...
