    Unacceptable File Type

    Thanks, theoldarchiver - My situation is that I don't do Nat Sound with the audio from the Clips. So I had unchecked "audio". I'll have to study further if I can substitute audio. Is there a new Sub Forum for "MyDVD" that came with Toast 14 yesterday! THANKS!!

    I don't know how to retire this thread, since there's the other thread that others started...

    Acceptable Mydvd Filetypes?

    I just re-tried with iMovie (AVCHD clips in iMovie)... output .mov 640x480 Letterbox (720x480) and MyDVD liked it. Difference: iMovie with Audio track vs Toast with Audio unchecked. I also did an iMovie with no Audio , which also got the "Unacceptable File Type" in MyDVD. I got the clue from MacGeek above, when she mentioned the word "audio". I don't make Nat Sound DVDs, and for the Toast 14 AVCHD video test, I didn't deal with adding a music track. Now I did, and it worked. What a relief. My little 2.8GHz Mac Mini was sweating under the strain. I'm looking into upping from 8GB to 16GB of RAM. Upping myself. I didn't want to wait the 2 weeks for Apple to ship (pickup) my Mini with upgraded specs. I've made about 500 DVDs with FCP and DSP! I so miss both. BUT, my first try with MyDVD last night (video and audio!!) worked so smoothly! It was amazing. Even making chapters!! SO pleased. I've easily burned 10,000 DVDs with Toast since about 2005 (I actually owned the first Toast CD burner in 1995!). Sometimes Toast acts kind of "Windows"-y, but HOORAY Toast 14 and MyDVD is pretty amazing, coming down off of 10 years with FCP and DSP, then a dalliance with Premiere Pro and DSP, then back to FCPX alternating with iMovie and DSP for the simplistic work I do, MyDVD is going to work fine! Which gives me breathing room to learn BD maybe. iMovie took a little longer than Toast 14 to output. I need to look deeper: Is there a box I forgot to find to check, so that the 10 AVCHD clips would have outputted as ONE .mov, instead of 10?

    Well, if there had been a drop-down option for 720x480... but since there wasn't, it's 640x480 Letterbox, which equates to 720x480.

    (I started a new thread a few minutes ago. This thread seems to be on topic...) I took some AVCHD files, used Toast 14 to make them NTSC .movs (29.97, 640x480 about as generic as Toast can do - added "letterbox" if necessary since the files are actually 720x480). Dropped a .mov into MyDVD, and got the "Unacceptable File Type" error. In Toast, I unchecked the "Audio" box, as I don't use nat sound.

    I hope this is the same as the "My DVD" software that came with my Toast 14 yesterday. I took some AVCHD files, used Toast 14 to make them NTSC .movs (29.97, 640x480 about as generic as Toast can do). Dropped a .mov into MyDVD, and got the "Unacceptable File Type" error. Useless, because the warning box doesn't say "why"!! What do you guys do?
