How do I open a .dvd file

posted in File Types, viewed 37k times

I have never seen a .DVD extension before and I am having some trouble opening it. There are 6 files.

Rayman.dvd 1kb
Rayman.000 1,048,576kb
Rayman.001 1,048,576kb
Rayman.002 1,048,576kb
Rayman.003 1,048,576kb
Rayman.004 395,520kb

Those files sizes add up to the total size of the dics (not compressed). I have tried WinRar, Clone CD, Nero, Alcohol, WinISO, and a few more. None of those programs will open a .dvd file. Any help would be great. reply

When trying to use ImgBurn the message:
Invalid file or format

Can’t use 7zip to extract it.
It’s a way too different archive type. reply

I tried, but it stopped and popped up a warning that it’s too big for a DVD medium. Well, it’s a PC game iso image with the size over 6GB!

How do you do it, then? T.I.A. reply

Just click extract. Nothing wrong. only thing is, that you need to select all of the files.
My dad burned those files on disc and wondered why it didn’t work. I had a laugh, when i found out, that these are compressed files. reply

executed from command prompt:

copy /b Rayman.000+Rayman.001+Rayman.002+Rayman.003+Rayman.004 Rayman.iso

Produced ISO (Rayman.iso) was then scrubbed, RARed, and tested in WBFSManager. Functional.

For info about /B - http://www.easydos.com/copy.html
"/B - Used to copy binary files. Applies to the filename preceding it and to all following filenames. Copied files will be read by size (according to the number of bytes indicated in the file`s directory listing). An end-of-file mark is not placed at the end of the copied file."

I was completely unaware of the '+' being used at the command prompt. I’m assuming that it means to append files and because the /b doesn’t “close” the file, this works to create the ISO. Nice call, Nyquist!

By the way, I think that the main issue is the focus on the .dvd file which apparently does nothing really. It’s supposed to be for CloneCD 5.2 (or something) but neither CloneDVD, UltraISO, WinRar, ImgBurn, nor anything else I threw at it worked. Bottomline, I guess, is that if you don’t have CloneCD (, or Virtual CloneDrive as The Dude mentioned), don’t deal with .dvd!

.001 .002 etc. files are opened with WinRAR.

Right click -> Open With... -> WinRAR (Check “Always open these files with bla bla”)
Then, try mounting it with Daemon Tools, go to the drive where you mounted it in My Computer, and try auto-play. See what happens.
Alternatively you could extract the .001. reply

OMG, this is the first thread that comes up then you search for open .dvd ? REALLY ?!
Then .000 .001 etc files are WinRAR format, you can extract them or you can copy them into a larger .ISO (iso files are actually compliant with WinRAR or many other file archiver softwares out there).
Guess there were some errors or you didn’t try hard enough.

NOW THE .DVD FILE is actually information to burn other files.
It has information for burning softwares like ImgBurn to burn the files correctly. If you don’t want to burn the files on a cd/dvd the .dvd files are useless. If you want to burn them just open the burning software and browse for the .dvd file... the rest will be done automatically and you won’t have to select the .iso file (except burning speed,select that).

Most of the times if you open .dvd files in a text processor like notepad (i preffer notepad++) it will have 2 lines: first the LayerBreak with some numbers wich sets the burning mode (most of the times MODE1) and the second line is the name of the file burned (the actual .iso file) reply
