So I suggest a more general method that is the subject of this tutorial.

For me, Studio 14 and Studio 15 have taken a step back in terms of DVD player compatibility. Discs produced by S12 play back fine on an old player I own, but if I make an identical project in S14/S15, the player doesn’t seem to recognise the menu structure correctly and refuses to play some or even all of the chapters. I propose in this tutorial to explain how avoid this bug by using ImgBurn.

But this has not always been the case and DGrenier had proposed a tutorial, taken in part below, to accomplish this with the studio versions below Studio 12 who could not import these file types. As we still have many readers that use versions prior to Studio 12, we offer an retrospective overview of treatment of these files.

The auxiliary files, sometimes called temporary, sometimes secondary files,  and now render files in new Studio versions are created by Studio, in different circumstances, when editing or exporting a project. These files are saved in a specific folder. The auxiliary files can grow quite large and cause various disturbances in exporting your projects. These auxiliary files can be deleted at any time during your editing for Studio will recreate them automatically when you work on the project.

In various forums that we frequent, users often report incidents that they attribute to Studio ! In fact, after expertise, those problems have to be attributed to causes entirely unrelated to the editing software.
