Question

I am at my whits end trying to burn AVCHD discs using Roxio Creator 2009. It is a problem many other people seem to be having. When I try to burn the AVCHD discs (which takes several hours), I get the message at the very end saying "Project_BuildToDevice() AuthorScript call failed. Error while Writing Format".

 

I'm using TDK -RW 4.7GB discs, on a computer with a core 2 quad. I did manage earlier to burn an ordinary DVD, but I purchased Roxio specifically so I could have HD quality DVD's that would run on normal DVD players.

 

I've tried reinstalling Roxio and have installed the latest updates, but that does not solve the problem. Having spent hours editing video using Roxio, I am now thinking that the only solution is to try different software.

 

Please can anyone help me! :huh:

I created an AVCHD project in My DVD. Some of the source images are not HD. The file saves fine and there are no Validation errors. All of the movies play fine on the computer when selected from the Movies tab on Project view. If there is some kind of encoding error due to my files, why the freak doesnt the validtation tool flag it??? If I can play it, it should burn. MyDVD has gotten worse and worse since Version 5. I am not a programmer or geeked out videofile. I want what is on my computer screen to go to my disk. And yes, I selected all the crap you suggested, burn to file and on and on geek crap. Simply put, my project is trapped on my computer. Previews perfect, encodes just fine, but wont write to harddrive or disk. So, what good is it??

My guess is the file is too big. I am using 90% of the disk space in HQ. From the forum I see others have burned 25 slides successfully to AVCHD. Big whoop. I absolutly cannot believe you geeks cannot program something that is WYSIWYG. I dont care what encoding is used. That is the whole point to MyDVD. It's all in the background. If the software accepts the source file, it should burn. If the movies preview correctly, it should burn. With MyDVD 5 I never lost a single disk. With every new version since, I have to reinvent something to make it work. Some non-sense that you geeks should have figured out for me. This bull about "it works in the lab" is an excuse for chumps.

Mind your manners!

 

None of us are lab geeks or even work for Roxio!!!

Calling people names will quickly get you ignored by everyone :blink:

 

If you are using 90% of the disk space then its time you got a bigger hard drive and stop blaming the software :angry:

To the original poster:

 

It seems that you don't understand the purpose of AVCHD on Standard DVD. These discs are burned in the Bluray format and only playback on a Bluray Player or computer that supports the format. You can not get 'HD' on a regular DVD player. There are a few exceptions like a DVD player that supports HD WMV or DivX HD. These formats are usually just data discs with a file on it.

90% of the DVD disk not the drive. I have 2TB HD and enough power to move the titanic. No reply needed, I'm swithing software.

 

 

"90% of the disk space" refers to a hard drive. If your want to refer to a CD or DVD you should be using "90% of the disc space"

 

Good Bye and good riddance :unsure:
