Error -50

Question

Does anyone else get the error -50 message when burning a video to DVD or making a disc image on their mac?

I have not been able to successfully burn to a disc yet which as been very frustrating or make a disc image having only just bought the application.

The OS is 10.5.5

My DVD burner is internal and is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-112D.

The firmware revision is AC08.

The mac I have is a Mac Pro G5, dual core Intel 2.66GHz, 8GB 667MHz ram and a ATY RadeonX1900 XT PCI card and striped 500GB hardrives.

 

I am running Toast Titanium 9.0.2 (261)

 

Could it be a software compatibility issue?

Can anyone help please.

I am recording TV in PAL because I am in Australia

I send the TV content to Toast direct from EyeTV via the Toast button.

Video Setting: TV Standard PAL

Audio Setting: System default

Encoding: Automatic (Better).

Having just visited the Elgato users forum I have found that the problem is widespread among users and maybe to do with the GOB, etc, etc, and the way in which Roxio interprets MPEG 2 information sent from Eyetv.

I must admit that this is very confusing and frustrating for someone who really just wants to burn a TV program to DVD.

I thought it would be simple.

 

I have made disc images with Toast from normal video and .mov files no problem it just seems to be when Toast tries to convert EyeTV files that the problems occur.

I have had problems sometimes with EyeTV recordings. Here's what I believe will work for you. In EyeTV choose to Export and save the file as an elementary stream (separate video and audio files). Add the video stream to the Toast Video window (Toast will automatically match the audio file or will ask you for it). Now proceed as before.

I hope it's OK to post to this thread: I'm getting the same error (-50) when either burning to DVD+RW or saving as a disc image. I'm also on a Mac, OS v. 10.5.5, running Toast Titanium v. 9.0.2. It only happens when I'm burning TiVo shows to DVD, and the process used to work fine up until about a week or two ago, but now it doesn't. TIA!

I am also getting Error -50 trying to burn an EyeTV program to DVD on a Mac Pro, even saving as a disk image. Your suggestion of saving the program as an elementary stream, then burning that, did work. Thanks. It's not an ideal solution, but at least allows us to work around the problem. Is this perhaps a 10.5.5 or QT 7.5.5 issue? It's been a while since I burned an eyeTV program, but never saw this problem before upgrading to 10.5.5.

 

Toast: 9.0.2

 

I hope Roxio is paying attention and working on this problem.

Thanks that did the trick.

I wanted to edit the TV Mpeg 2 which you can't do when you split the stream as you suggested so just for fun I recorded some TV and did the routine thing of just clicking on Toast

edited out the bits I didn't want and then clicked disc image and it encoded normally. I don't understand but it appears that by doing what you suggested has like magic fixed it.

Now I think you are a genius.
