Burning Dual Layer


Ruymar

Question

I'm using a Mac G4 dual processor OS 10.4.9 and a LaCie Dual Layer burner. Have done many projects with no trouble using Toast 7. Joyfully purchased Toast 8 hoping for total compatibility with iMovie6. BUT, no such luck. I produced the movie in iMovie 6, transferred it to Toast 8 which took 5 1/2 hours to multiplex, then just before burning, two error messages appeared: Sense Key=Illegal request. Sense Code=0x26 Invalid field in parameter list. Second message: Sense Key=Illegal request. Sense Code=0x30, 0x06, cannot format medium - incompatible medium.

For the past year I've used the same hardware with Toast 7 with no difficulty. I've been advised to always use Verbatim DVD+R DL discs, which have always worked beautifully in the past. Why should Toast 8 reject them?

My theory is that the error is with Toast 8. In upper left side of work space are listed the main choices,

DATA, AUDIO, VIDEO, and COPY. I selected VIDEO. Then 5 new choices appear: Video CD, Super Video CD, DVD-Video, Video_TS Folder, and DivX DiS. I chose DVD-Video. Until this point, the five choices were written in light grey. I expected my selection would cause DVD-Video to turn black. It did not, but did become

a darker grey. There was no DVD-Dual Layer choice.

I've spent two days trying to explain to the robot but we do not communicate very well. Is there no human being who can help me?

Are you using Verbatim DVD+R DL media? If not, try with that brand.

I always use Verbatim DVD+R DL. I was advised, can't remember whether it

was the LaCie people or the Toast people, that it was their #1 choice.

 

I guess it's between three manufacturers: Roxio, Lacie, and Mac. And they won't lose any sleep over it. I shall try to follow up on tsantee's suggestion it may have to do with fixes to OS 10.4.9. But for now I have

customers waiting, so I've trashed toast 8 and reverted to just making copies of previous DVD's, using Toast 7. No chance to make any improvements to the product, but at least I'll be able to supply on time.

 

Thanks for your help. if any of you hear of a for-sure solution, be sure to let me know. I have to face this

again, and again, and again.

Is it possible that the reported fixes to 10.4.9 in the latest seed regarding "problems with DiscRecording and the burning of DVDs" may have some relevance to this issue? I have also been experiencing this issue with burning video DVDs, particularly onto DL media.

This is a wild guess, but it is possible the drive went to sleep during the encoding time. I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image from the File menu instead of clicking the burn button. When the disc image is finished, switch to the Image File setting in the Copy window to burn the disc image file to your DL DVD.
