After having created a disk image (selecting HD for Output Device) in Compressor I get some files:

1. ac3 and m2V files

2. .img file

3. PAR folder


I guess the file I need to burn is the .img one. How can I burn it directly on a DVD? On Compressor itself?


At this point can I get rid of ac3, m2V and PAR files?

    You only need the img file to make physical disk copies. As noted earlier, if you want to use a full-featured authoring program like DVD Studio Pro or Toast, then hang on to the m2v and AC3 files.


    Launch Disk Utility to burn the DVD from the disk image.


    Good luck.

    Insert a disk into your optical drive.


    Drag the img icon to the bottom of the left pane in DU. Select it.

    Depending on your OS version, your burn speed options may be different than they are here. FWIW I usually choose 2X.


    Good luck.
