    I would like to create a directory or hierechy of menus. Main menu
    (26-alpabet) to sub menu (probably another 20 menues) to individule
    menus. A menu system to get to over 1500 categories. Then when you get
    to this categories there must be minimum of 5 still pictures to click
    or run through.

    This is the question what is the maximum number of menus and maximum
    stills I can get on a dvd ?????

    I have been told by specialists in this field that some software
    packages can produce infinite menus. But they seem to be at a
    disagreement on how a still can be showen on screen to maximis the
    quantity the disk can hold. The theories so far is
    1. unlimited menus and (dvd5) 720 stills max.
    2. 999 menus max and freeze a still to play for 10sec then play and
    freeze the next until end of category acheived. So therefore thousands.

    So is it thousands or hundreds of still pics is it infinite menus or
    999. ????????

    OUCH! this is interesting, are you interested in making the most
    frustrating dvd possible? be sure to use a lot of "USER PROHIBITION"
    options.

    A sort of related question: are there any dvd players that allow
    the user to simply ignore User Prohibitions? (without hacking,
    computers, copying, etc.)

    One of the muenstros santos dvds takes the cake in User Prohibitions:
    ALL skipping, stopping, pausing, fastforward/backward, menu, top menu,
    subtitling, etc., are disabled by the DVD for about 7-8 minutes of ads
    for spanish language movies.

    What I really want to do is make a directory for looking at on a dvd
    player.
    So people that are not intrested in looking at a web can look at a dvd
    to get that number and a face of who they would be calling. ????

    This then gives me a 1500 category menu and stills to stuff on this
    disk.
    However nobody has been able to give me the answer - it can or cannot
    be done !
    and the maximum stills are ?????
    If I get past this question then I will know if it is worth the
    frustration on the building of dvd!!!
