    Avid dvd question

    in Avid dvd what's the difference between Make dvd disc and Make dvd master? I'm trying to make a final dvd of a project and I was trying to use make dvd master on avid dvd but for some reason it doesn't read my dvd burner with that function so I did it by using Make dvd disc.  It works fine on my dvd player and it seems fine but I was just wondering what the difference was and if it could be a problem to read the dvd in other players.

    Make DVD master is used to send the data to a DTL tape-drive. The tape is then sent to a company for making a "glass master" from which your DVDs will be "pressed" rather than "burned".

    It is not surprising it doesn't recognise your DVD burner.

    It is actually a DLT tape drive. It connects via SCSI,  you can only connect it to your laptop if you have an express card to SCSI adapter(I think they make those).

    I ran into an issue using Adobe Encore when the client wanted the disc copy protected for duplication at a lab. I'm not sure if it's the same in Avid DVD, but the encryption process for a DVD Master could only be carried out if the DVD data was sent to a DLT tape prior, and then the tape forwarded on to a lab to press the glass master preserving the necessary encryption keys.

    Unless you're using a DLT drive and sending to a lab for glass mastering (and be cautious as there are a myriad of DLT flavours/capacities) then it sounds to me like the way you're making your final disc is correct.
