DVD Studio Pro (March 04, 2018 06:43AM) Trig Simon
The master of my DVD project won't duplicate or play.
I tried formatting a new master disc, but it gave me the same problem.

So, I substituted the following files from a DVD of another project.
..layout, lBUP, .IFO, .VOB, .LAY, .BUP and .IFO
It seems to have worked.
Is there any reason i should not work and am I asking fo trouble along the way?

If I remember correctly, .VOB files are Video Objects... the actual chunks of data that are the videos themselves. Video_TS is, I believe, a Transport Stream (MPEG file with both audio and video). Everything else is probably related to menu structure and table-of-contents data. All of these should be pretty vital for proper playback. I wouldn't mess with transplanting any of these, or you're likely to run into serious issues with the FrankenDisc you make from them.

YMMV... it's been a while since I played around with DVDs under the hood, but that's the best of my recollection.

Look at the size of the individual entities, and include only the bigger ones in your build.
