No Burning After Encoding


ajaxfan57

Question

Hi all.I have emc8 and a Benq model DW1620 drive.All of a sudden I can't finish burning a movie on DVD from my video files. I'm doing the same as before.The encoding process takes a long time but that was always like that.Now however it will go thru the encoding but when it's done it won't burn.I'm left with an empty DVD-R which is the DVD I've used before.It will burn unto a CD.Hope someone has an idea.

Have you installed any other software since it was last working? Does this happen with different video files or just one?

Some things that might help would be to keep your system defragged and you should just down any uneeded background programs.

It's hard to tell if your drive is going bad. Maybe a bit of cleaning will help. Try one of the brush discs that you can buy that do a better job of cleaning.

Encoding time depends on many things such as system power, memory, hard drive being defragged and the file type. If you have an divx file it will likely take more time than an mpeg file. What type of files are you using and where did they come from?

Thanks for your help.I went into device manager and noticed no region was picked for my DVD player.Never a problem before but I went back into it yesterday to see if a change would help and somehow it was on region #1.So I tried again to burn and was succesfull.Not sure what's up,if windows had a hiccup but for now my problem's solved. Thank again. :)

First I thought it had something to do with the fact I captured some video in mpg mode versus avi.But neither works and I haven't installed anything new recently.I wonder if the laser in my dvd drive is acting up.Question,is it normal for encoding to take so much time? If I try to fill a DVD with a few videos with a few chapters it can take hours to get thru the encoding process.I'm running windows XP home with 1 gig of ram.
