VCD for Replication

we are producing VCDs for commercial replication for a major studio. We were provided sample commercial discs to use as guides. The VCD projects we produce with Nero Video differ from the samples in the following areas (and I cannot find any information about the issues below in the manuals):
1) the commercial VCDs have Karaoke and CDDA folders. Nero does not create these. Is there a reason?
2) the contents of the CDI folder we create with Nero is different from the commercial samples. The samples have a .VCD, .DYV, and .C8 files. Ours has an .RTF, .FNT, and a third file without an extension. Why? How do we create the file included on the commercial disc?
3) Where is Nero getting the names assigned to the files that are put in the MPEGAV folder?
4) The sample discs supplied appear to have some form of copy protection applied. Can we do this with Nero, or is this something done by the replicator?

Thanks very much for any help. As always with studio work, we're in a bit of a hurry.

this question
  • Which version of Nero are you using? Is it up to date as indicated by running the check for updates in the Nero ControlCenter.

    You were given commercial VCDs.

    If the discs are copy protected, you can't replicate or burn their contents with Nero. However, if you were able to import the discs into Nero Video and burn them, that shouldn't be the case.

    If you don't want to lose anything, why don't you just do a copy disc in either Burning Rom or Nero Express. I assume you have no intention of editing them and, as I said above, they're not copy protected.

    In regards to the technical questions, I think you would have to send an e-mail to tech support. However, it might take up to 5 business days to get a response.
