    Dvds Can't Be Read After Burning

    I am using Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and just updated the software for my Toast 11 pro program to 11.2. Before updating, I was able to burn some DVDs of my home videos and then play them back on my DVD player with no problem. Now I keep getting a message on the screen saying my player can't operate the disk and it's an unknown disk. I am using DVD's from the same package where I successfully burned DVDs. The only thing that's changed is the fact that I updated the Toast software. Before I ruin my 6th DVD, I thought I'd ask for some help or suggestions on what to try next I was thinking of either going back to the original Toast version or updating my apple software to Maverick.

    I didn't try your suggestion yet since that's not going to help my issue. I don't want to have to burn two DVDs in order to get one that will work but I did try importing my video to imovies and then burned the imovie file to a DVD only I still got the same issue with my player not being able to read the disk. I now have 5 DVDs that are useless. Before I try anything else,, I decided to ask for some help in the Toast 11 forum.

    Make Dvd's

    I'm using DVD's from the same package and trying to play my burned DVD on the same DVD player. I did try and see what would happen if I tried to play the DVD on a different DVD player but got the same results. I guess I'll try your suggestion and if that doesn't work, I'll go back to the original software or perhaps I might first try importing my recording into imovies and then drag that file into Toast.

    I figured out how to drag my video into Toast and was able to burn a few DVDs until I updated the software for Toast. Now I have two DVD's that can't be viewed on my DVD player connected to my TV set. The only thing I did differently with these two DVD's is to edit the title and add some chapters. I don't know if that would cause a problem. I don't see why it should so I'm wondering if the problems lies in the fact that I updated the software. I figured I'd see if anyone can help me here. If not, I thought I'd uninstall the software and reinstall it and then just not do an update.

    Thanks again for your help. My first movie actually came out pretty good except the audio was out of sync near the end of the video. I'm trying the medium setting for my next recording. I'll have to look into looking at some tutorials. I've tried to follow some but its hard when the tutorials don't seem to match my software. One of my biggest problems in all this is trying to figure out where to save my videos and then how to access them when I want to burn a DVD. I recorded over 2 hours of video the first try and tried to edit the video in imovies so it would only be 2 hours long but now I can't seem to drag that video into Toast. Either that or I'm just not clicking the right file so I decided to start all over again and this time I'm only recording 2 hours at a time. I was hoping I could record my video and then just burn it in toast since that's what the tutorials have lead me to believe but I can't figure out how to do that. There's no option to send my recorded video any place. I don't even think a basic version of Toast came with my software.

    Thanks for the quick reply and explanation. I actually own Toast pro 11 and thought I'd see what happens if I dragged my video into that program and burned it there. I had first imported my video to iMovie since I thought that's what I needed to do and then tried to burn it using idvd. That's when I realized the file size was much too large for a single DVD. I did this after posting my message so it's in the middle of burning my dvd. I'm sure I used high quality for everything and if there's a problem with the audio I'll redo it using the medium setting. I'm hoping my video quality is good. I'm not sure I dragged the right video into Toast. I really have no clue what I'm doing.

    I'm not very good with mac computers or any of the software for a mac computer so could you please explain what you mean by authoring application? I just bought Easy VSH to DVD for mac and tried to burn a DVD but realized my 2 hour video is over 16gbs and obviously won't fit on one DVD. I'm not sure what to do.

    I just received my ordered copy of toast 11 pro in the mail and it says it comes with FotoMagico but I can't seem to install it on my computer. It's listed in the pro folder on the install disc and when I click it, it just opens up but doesn't install or give me an option to install. I wouldn't mind putting the disc in every time I want to use the program but it takes for ever to open the install package. I'm new to mac computers so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong so if someone could help me, I'd really appreciate it. I've never used this FotoMagico program but it says it does slideshows which is something I'm interested in doing.
