    There seems to be a problem with the filesize of the parts. Till now it seems the size must be a multiple of 1024 bytes.

    @VeNoM386
    Is this a limitation of the MDS format or is there a way to fix this in DT?

    As I understand, mds can only be split across sector boundaries.

    Hmm, then the sectorsize can be 2048 or 2324 bytes?

    @.MDS-Experts

    I want to write a script to automatically generate a .MDS file. I've found out all fields DVD-Decrypter writes in the .MDS so far, expect one:

    At hex-offset 08CD is a value I can't identificate. Can someone give me a hint how this value can be generated?

    Regards,
    corum666

    BTW: This splitted DVD ISO/MDS stuff works great so far. There is a tool called DVDIdle that's a kind of read ahead cache. This is very usefull to gain time for the spinning-up time of the next drive. With DVDIdle I get no dropout at the split between the two disks.
    Does DAEMON-Tools allready have such kind of read ahead mechanism that could be maxed out to get the same functionality?

    @VeNoM386
    THX for the help.

    @All
    I just want to inform you, that I was able to write the wanted script. It works with Girder and is written in LUA (a language supported by Girder). With the help of the DVDSpy plugin, Girder is able to detect a new inserted DVD. The script then scans both DVD drives. If it finds a splitted ISO on them, it creates an MDS file and mounts it with DT. This also works, if one DVD has parts of two different ISOs (sometimes I copy two original Video-DVDs to three DVD-Rs).

    So no more user-interaction is needed: just insert the two DVDs and you can directly play them in your DVD-player.

    If someone is interested, I can upload the script somewhere.

    Corum666, Mod, Admin,

    I went to the download section and did not see this script. It seems like what I have been searching for some time.

    thx don
