Solved dvd-r convert to ntsc format

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, I have a dvd-r and the format it has currently is cdfs. I just want to simply format it into a ntsc so my ps3 can read it. Also when I say ntsc I don't mean ntfs, I don't want it formatted into ntfs. I put files on the dvd-r from a ps2 game, so I am not planning to watch a movie. Please respond because I spent 2 hours on trying to simply format my disk.

You can't convert an existing recording to NTSC. You have to re-record it on a new blank disc and choose NTSC in the recording options if available.

If the option to choose NTSC is not available in your existing recording software, you must use a different recording software where the option is available.

CDFS has nothing to do with NTSC.

CDFS stands for Compact Disc File System and is the standard format as to how a data CD is written. And anyway, you can't format a CD or DVD to the NTFS format.

The fact that your system is saying it's in the CDFS files system tells me that it's recognizing the disc as a data CD, not a DVD.

NTSC stands for National Television System Committee, and is a video/broadcasting format that is used here in the United States as well as a few other countries.

The video must already be in the NTSC or PAL format before it's burned to a DVD, Burning to a DVD will write it to the DVD format no matter what format the video is in.

What is it that you are trying to copy to the DVD in question?

I would just like to say that when data is burned onto a DVD it can be burned as different file types. Although it is saved onto the disc as the same format, it also saves what format the data was in when it was encoded and burned onto the DVD, and this affects how the data is read and decoded by either your computer or PS3 or whatever. But yes, when data is burned onto a DVD, it cannot be rewritten. In DVD-R (Sometimes called DVD-ROM, although ususally -ROM is reserved for CDs) the acronym ROM stands for read-only memory, meaning it can be written on once and never again. There is also DVD+R, which is just slightly different(but not better). DVD's that can be written on and then erased, then rewritten on is called DVD-RW or DVD+RW. The RW stands for Read-Writable.

But yes, CDFS is the standard way data is saved on CDs, whereas NTSC is a filetype computers and things use for data, and a way data is encoded/decoded from DVDs.

Most likely what you want to do is not to change the CDFS, but to change how the data in encoded and decoded to and from the DVD. I don't know what filetype the PS2 game is, or how you got it. Your best bet would be to try to get a PS2 emulator ROM that can be read by PS3 (basically a copy of the PS2 game in another file type), but Im pretty sure that's illegal unless you buy the rights or something. The PS3 wasn't designed to read the PS2 games' format, so the standard format wouldn't work. PSOne games will work on the PS3 becasue it has the proper software to decode that data type.

I believe sony recently released a download for PS3 lets it read the filetype, but I haven't used it yet so I wouldn't know, but my friends who have say its a pain in the butt.
