Burning two converted files to a single DVD

I normally use VideoRedo to convert films recorded from TV and burn them with ConvertX. I just converted two films like this, but can't get them both into ConvertX to burn the DVD. Worse still I can't get them back into VideoRedo in edited form (with the ads cut out). The converted files are in two separate folders in audio and video .TS form. Is there any way I get get VideoRedo to import both files and burn them to a single DVD or do I have to start over?

Why can't you get them into VideoReDo? You do understand how the DVD system works right? You open one file, make your edits, then click Add To DVD. Open the next file, make your edits, and click Add To DVD. From that dialog click Create DVD and both files will be on the disc.

That's what I should have done, but I burned them to a file instead, prior to using ConvertX to burn the DVD. Looks like I'll have to start over and do the edits again, then burn them with VideoReDo. I don't do this all the time and there are still some aspects I don't understand. I still don't know why VideoRedo can't re-import the edited and converted files from the two folders.

never re-edit again

I'm unclear on what you are trying to do.
However, when you edit a file, it's wise to save a project file (.vprj) with all the edits in it.
You also save your raw source file 'till you're sure you have the results you want.
Then at any time, all you do is reload the .Vprj file into VideoReDo, and the source loads -with- all your edits, ready to be saved a different way or re-edited, as you wish.

I'm not clear on what you're trying to do. If you're trying to reopen a file that you authored to DVD then simply use the File->Open title from DVD option. If you saved the files to .mpg or .ts then simply reopen them. You can open up to 12 files in sucession and click Add To DVD, even without making any edits, and then create a DVD from them.

If you're actually getting some sort of error when attempting to open the file previously created by VideoReDo let me know what it is and I might be able to help you figure out the problem.

Thanks: I'll try that. I thought I'd saved some Vprj files, but I couldn't find them later. What is needed is a clod's guide to using the software, step by step, including the routeing errors etc. that I seem to have made. I've managed to get multiple files on one DVD before (Alan Bennett "Talking Heads") but I do this so rarely that I forgot what I did. I'll let you know how I get on after I've done a search for *.vprj files.
