Problems using Burn

I've been trying to burn a video DVD using Burn but keep getting errors. The error log says it fails to set up DVD xml/menu or something to the effect. It goes through converting the file, but quits while writing the disc.

You need to contact the authors of Burn as Apple discussions only provide support for Apple products.

    Using export slide show from iphoto, I am trying to create a DVD of photos and vid clips in large format. The vid clips do not work using burn software. Any idea?

    Have used large format, but using the 'burn' software, I am not getting seamless video quality on DVD even though I am burning at 2* speed. Any ideas? Do I need better software? Or is there a problem with the SuperDrive?

  • Audio Problems when burning

    I have tried making disc image, burning disc and the audio will pause for second several times in the play back. It does not do it when playing back in iDVD.
    The slide show was started in iPhoto and sent to iDVD. I have started over several times and still same issue. Makes a bad impression and is really not useable for presentation.
    I have 30 gigs free space, changed settings to Professional encoding and still same issue. I have no open apps, changed all energy settings and screen saver to never.
    Any ideas, I am fresh out, never had this problem with previous version.

    Andy,
    This question is really in the wrong place - this is the iDVD '08 forum and not the iDVD 5 forum.
    From the description of your problem using Toast, it sounds like you didn't actually export a DV video movie out of iMovie.
    Export a DV video movie out of iMovie (it will run 13 GB per hour) and play it back with the QuickTime Player to see if the audio settings you made are really there. If this movie plays OK, you can bring IT into iDVD or Toast for turning it into a DVD.
    If the DV video movie you created STILL has audio problems in the QuickTime Player, ask you question about THAT issue in the correct iMovie forum.

  • Multiplexing problems when burning

    Using iDVD to burn a DVD, I get a message at the end of the process stating that there were multiplexing problems during burning. When I try to play the DVD, the introduction plays fine, but when I try to play any of the three movies, created in iMovie, I get a "not permitted" message and the movie does not play. I have burned the DVD twice and got the same result both times.
    I have created several DVDs in the past, using iDVD, and did not have any problems. I have been using a LaCie DVD drive to burn my DVDs, since I do not have a superdrive on my iMac.
    Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'd make sure the basics are covered.
    Lots of memory helps; and you'll need 10-15 gigs of space on the hard drive for scratch space.
    Buy good quality disks - I've seen recommendations for Maxell, Sony, Verbatim, TDK and a few others based on testing. I primarily use the first two and usually don't have trouble.
    Give yourself lots of time.
    Turn off your screen savers and energy savers; don't let your hard drive go to sleep.
    Get your computer healthy and ready for some heavy lifting. (video work could be the hardest job your computer can do) MacJanitor followed by Apple's DiskUtility's Repair Permissions is my routine.
    Most of the time iDVD is working, it is encoding (compressing) your video to fit on the DVD. Create an image .img file and use Toast or Disk Utility to burn it to disk. Burn slow (1 or 2x).
    I keep my projects under 60 minutes (for highest resolution).
    Try testers; you can use DVD-RW
    I import into iDVD rather than export from iMovie (fewer errors).
    No other apps open.
    If you use iDVD for burning the DVD (and don't make a disk image), don't quit iDVD even when the DVD is burned, until you've played the DVD in a regular player (it's much easier to burn another disk and check to see if the problem was a bad disk, than to go back through all that encoding again by quitting iDVD).

  • IMovie audio problems when burning in Toast 6

    Hi,
    i've tried to burn an imovie project in idvd 5 but i get 'the error #-1 was reported' like most people have been and i've tried loads of things suggested to fix it with no joy.
    I then sent the imovie project to toast titanium 6 where it burned fine. However, when i watched it i noticed that although toast had picked up all the audio (both dv audio and aiff), it did not pick up all the volume adjustments during the movie. how annoying! for example: i have an aiff clip that fades into a movie clip with the sound gradually going down but Toast picks up the sound staying at the same level. this also happens with volume adjustments in a DV file.
    Any suggestions why this happens / how i can fix it?
    Cheers,
    Andy

  • Potential problems of burning a large quantity of CD's on Mac mini

    At my work, we have Intel Mac mini's running Windows XP. One of my managers want a few of us to burn 220 CD's from our mini's instead of paying for CD duplication. Is there any potential problems in burning such a large quantity of CD's?

    While the slot loading drives used in the Mac mini (and other Apple systems) are not the most robust, they are not fragile devices and should not be assumed to be incapable of use in a broadly similar pattern of demand as any other drive. Where they do suffer is in being relatively slow in performance and relatively fussy in media compatibility compared to tray loading devices. As long as you have patience, don't force the disks in (or out) and use media the drives 'like', 220 burns over 6 months should be within the drive's capabilities.
    I do agree with the previous comments that it would make more sense, given the cost of an external burner, to use such a device instead, but that's as much to do with the fact that the improved burn performance and reliability would save more in labor time (and potentially media) than the drive would cost!

  • Audio problems from burning DVD's from Macbook Pro?

    Hey guys,
    So lately I have been having problems with burning DVD.  I use either iDVD or Roxio Toast Titanium 11 too burn movies to play on my television. After burnign them I notice all of them have audio problems.  It's as if the audio is faint for the dialogue but when background music plays its blaring! I checked my TV and its definitely not my Television because sound plays from both speakers.  I was wondering if any other Macbook users had this problem or users of either of these programs had this problem because it's such a hassle burning movies without really enjoying them.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • Problems in burning

    I am currently having problems in burning an iDVD to disc.
    I generated a movie in iMovie which is a little over 2hrs in length. Went to "Share" in the menue and chose large.
    Once this was completed, I opened iDVD, chose a theme, added a movie 3.5GB, music and photos, played it all back to check it out and this was OK. Inserted a dual layer disc 8.5GB and proceded to burn.
    All appeared to be going OK showing a time frame of approximately 3–4hrs, so I left this burning, or so I thought, only to go back to my computer to find the disc had been ejected and there was still 3hrs 15mins to go and asking me if I wanted to cancel or continue burning. This problem has occured 5 times now and with the same project with 5 discs being wasted.
    Previously I have not had trouble with burning either single or dual layer discs and I follow the same routine each time. So I am now wondering, could there be a problem with the Laser?
    Is there anyone who could help me with this?

    Hi
    Did You try first to "Save as a DiskImage" ?
    Does this work OK
    If so - burn it with Disk Util tool
    Did You set the proper encoding quality ?
    iDVD 08, 09 & 11 has three levels of qualities. (version 7.0.1, 7,0.4 & 7.1.1) and iDVD 6 has the two last ones
    • Professional Quality
    (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - BEST (but not always for short movies e.g. up to 45 minutes in total)
    • Best Performances
    (movies + menus  less than 60 min.) - High quality on final DVD (Can be best for short movies)
    • High Quality (in iDVD08 or 09) / Best Quality (in iDVD6)
    (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - slightly lower quality than above
    Menu can take 15 minutes or even more - I use a very simple one with no audsio or animation like ”Brushed Metal” in old Themes.
    About double on DL DVDs.
    iDVD doesn't care about Gbs at all only time and duration.

  • Problem with burning DVD

    Hi,
    Is there anybody who can help me? I try to burn a lot of photos at DVD (DVD+R), but there are problems. Burning is OK, but veryfying not. Then I get the message "Sector 1 unreadeble" and that's it. I got a new DVD station in my iMac, but the problem still goes on.

    Does your iMac have an internal CD/DVD drive, or are you using an external CD/DVD burner?  If it's an external USB burner, do you have *ANY* other USB devices connected to your Mac other than your keyboard and/or mouse?

  • Problem with burning DVD's

    I have Roxio Toast Titanium and I have a problem with burning DVD's. When I put a blank DVD-R in my superdrive, select the files and go to burn; the advanced recording options will not let me deselect the check in "close disk". It is shaded. But when I use a CD-RW I can and so far the Roxio help has...well has not been help at all. I mean why would I spend the money to buy a software package that lets me do the same thing as the basic OS-X disk utility would let me do? Drag a file, burn it and close the disk from any future use....
    Sorry if this does not belong here, I did not see a area for general software questions way back in the main forum area not one here.

    Donald,
    Hi and thank you.
    To give you more details on what I am trying to do; I am trying to burn in Mac & PC format. I am mainly trying to back up all my assorted college files (I am a college student), these files are lecture notes in Word with embedded audio recordings, standard Word documents such as essays, etc., spreadsheets, PDF documents, etc. The files I am attempting to burn should not be larger than 4.7 gb and Roxio has not given me a warning that it would be.
    I am just frustrated that when I put in a DVD-R or -RW I only have one option, and that is to close out the disk when it is finished burning it. I have also gone to the recording tab, on the menue bar, to uncheck the "close disk" box after I put in a blank DVD and before I select files to burn. The option is shadded preventing me from even trying, which is not the case for a CD!
    Thank you!

  • What does this mean and how do I fix it: "The following warnings and errors were found during the validation of the current project:  - There appears to be a broken asset in your project. Correct this problem before burning this project."

    What does this mean and how do I fix it: "The following warnings and errors were found during the validation of the current project:  - There appears to be a broken asset in your project. Correct this problem before burning this project."

    It means that iDVD has found a problem with one of the movies added to the project.  Did you edit the movie after it had been added to the project.
    Create a new project and add your assets, movies, slides, etc. again and follow this workflow to help ensure the best quality video DVD:
    Once you have the project as you want it save it as a disk image via the  File ➙ Save as Disk Image  menu option.  This will separate the encoding process from the burn process. 
    To check the encoding mount the disk image and launch DVD Player and play it.  If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding was good.
    Then burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality.  Always use top quality media:  Verbatim, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.

  • Problem using File sharing  in a small office network

    I have a problem using File sharing on an Imac and Macbook Pro.
    My office has a small network running Windows Small office file server 2003. I have one Windows 2000 PC connected to it and 3 Macs, an 2.4 gHz Intel iMac running Leopard 10.5.6 , a MBP running the same and a Mac Mini running 10.5.
    From the Finder Shared window of the Mac Mini, I can see all the computers on the network. It also used to be the case for the iMac, but the MBP could never see the Windows PC’s, not the server or the Win2000. This wasn’t a big problem as I was communicating between the Macs and using the shared printer on the iMac.
    On Monday Jan 19 the iMac was suddenly unavailable to the other 2 Macs. It was working normally on the Friday. The iMac can access the Mac Mini and copy files to it. The Mac Mini can see the iMac but cannot access it. Even trying to connect as, ends in a failed connection. I have tried rebooting, turning File sharing off and then on again to no avail.
    The iMac now also cannot see the Windows PC’s which it previously could.
    To get files from the MBP for printing, I now copy it to the Mac Mini and acces the folder from the iMac, a very tedious procedure. I don’t know why this happened and am scared that the Mac Mini is going to do the same thing.
    All three computers are also running VMware 2.0 with Windows XP pro, and from VMware the server is visible on all the computers.
    Any help will be much appreciated, I live in a small town in South Africa and the local computer suppliers have no knowledge of the Macs.
    I think that the problem with the iMac may have started after a software upgrade to 10.5.6 but I am not entirely sure.
    Thank you

    Well, you're current method sounds pretty good. But if you want to user a file server, hey go ahead.
    What you want to do when you centralize project files is to keep track of which one is the newest and becareful not to overwrite files with the same name. So you either have to set up individual spaces on the server (separate AFP/FTP folders maybe), or you'll need to run a file checkout service.
    The individual space is cheaper, but it's not much of a difference from backing up to the network drive. Since you have Gigabit connections, you might even opt to save ALL the user files on the server instead of just the project files.
    If you want to run a file checkout service, there's two approaches. You can run a service that can host any kind of file, or you can run a version control system for each kind of application (Photoshop, Word, etc.). Please notice, that as you read further and further along, the methods become more and more expensive and complicated. Once you get to this point, it will be necessary to purchase or build software in addition to the Mac OS X Server package.

  • Huge problem using apple mail while sending email to a group...

    Hey - I am quite confused... apple mail has huge problems using groups with about 150 addresses when writing and sending an email... the writing of emails is nearly impossible. Once the group name is inserted in the addressline (address book in iCloud!), apple mail uses nearly 100% CPU and further writing is nearly impossible. When sending such an email, all addresses are suddenly visible - though the box is NOT checked and the addresses should be hidden... what can I do? I use this feature (sending mails to groups) on a daily basis and cannot accept visible addresses...
    Greetings and sorry for inconvenient english...
    Christof

    How about next time you send to the group, cc yourself, or include yourself in the group. Then receive the email on the iphone, you can "reply all" in order to send to the group. If you use an imap account, you can make a new folder, call it something like "groups", and save different group emails there for the next time you need to "reply all".

    If your phone is locked to a particular carrier, you must contact them to request they unlock it. Once they've taken care of that and you've followed the instructions to complete the unlock process, you will be able to use the phone elsewhere.
