how to turn off 'create directory' behaviour?

Post by ciarabelle » Wed Jan 16, 2019 3:06 pm

Hi

Each time i burn a disc it asks me to 'Create Directory /Users/####/Movies/Hancock does not exist. Do you want to create it?" Yes / No

Ok so if i say no.. it just goes back to previous screen and doesn't continue. If i say yes - it creates the superfluous directory.

I checked all prefs - i cannot find a spot to turn off this behaviour. I don't need a directory. Its only 1 file. I only burn the main file from the disc -- so an extra folder is not required.

How can i turn this feature off please? Ultimately, if i say no.. it should be just starting to burn the chosen items in that main movies directory.

TIA

(mac os x 10.14.2)

Preferences->Video, set "Default destination" to NONE. You can then set the directory you want the files written to, and the program will not attempt to make a directory based on the disk name.
