AfterDawn: Glossary


A .dvd file is generally a small-sized plaintext file that accompanies a .ISO image, intended to be burned to blank DVD media.

A .dvd file can be read and edited in any plaintext editor, such as Notepad on Windows. It can define things about the .ISO image that are useful for burning software.

For example, a "LayerBreak" parameter would instruct the burning software where the LayerBreak should be if burning an .ISO image file to a dual-layer DVD disc.

Burning software tools such as ImgBurn support .DVD/.ISO image input (always open the .DVD file).
