hi i have a dvd with menus and chapters and i want to copy the dvd on my usb and play it with menus and chapters
I copied all the files from the dvd onto my usb
It plays well on my computer but when i put the usb on my dvd player. It's not reading the files
I tried so many methods
like converting the files into mpg or mp4 -> but that just removes the menus and chapters

i would like to know from you

Yeah, this won't work if converted to MP4 file. You need to create a disc image file, and then mount the disc image in a video player like Powerdvd and then play it back.

I just tried copying the dvd contents to a newly created folder on my usb flash drive containing previous avchd material. It works perfectly with menus and chapters on my sony standalone BD player.

See this post for further help: https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/63057.page#346782 . It is possible that the brand and model of the standalone drive makes a big difference on whether it will work or not on a particular device. As Jets2011 mentioned, my HTPC can play both dvd images and folders using PDVD. It doesn’t matter what the medium it is on.
