Default DVD iso files and "Playlist is empty" message

It looks like Dune is very sensitive with the ISO format; the file should be compliant otherwise you 'll get the "Playlist is empty" message.
I actually had some files created with PowerISO and they weren't compliant; my other players are playing these files (tvix and xtreamer) but dune is refusing to play them.
The workaround is to extract the files from the ISO file and create a new one that is compliant. Now Dune can play these iso files

The PowerISO settings of the image:
Filesystem: Joliet and UDF
ISO9660 filename: Standard
Joliet filename: Standard
Enable file optimization: disabled

I would recommend to use ImgBurn to produce ISO files because it checks whether is a DVD or not and performs the appropriate settings.

The settings for ImgBurn are:
Data Type: Mode1/2048
Filesystem: ISO9660+UDF
UDF Rev: 1.02
Recurse Subdirectories

Hope this helps.

Default Re: DVD iso files and "Playlist is empty" message

75% of all the ISO files,all recorded using the same program(ANYDVD) and drives,are not working and the Dune reports "Play list is empty" It shows them all as ISO files but instead of the disc symbol, ISO's that do play, I get what looks like a document on the right side of the display any ideas ?

Thanks ,Tom
