Question

I have successfully archived AVCHD on Blu-ray disc, but I am not having the same success archiving AVCHD on DVD disc. I am trying to archive video from my Canon Vixia HFS 100. The video files are recorced at 24 mbps. I get the following error message when trying to archive on DVD disc.

 

 

invalid format:: Value of bitrate not supported in the AVCHD standard.

 

Am I getting this error message because DVD can not support 24 mbps?

What is the File format (extension)???

 

My Archive will not even see any mts files…

 

It does say that all files must be of the same format and if any are of a different frame rate, it isn't going to work…

 

Could that be the problem here?

They are all mts files and all are recorded at 24 mbps.

I had a chance to do some testing with it! Both a DVD 'plus' as well as a 'dash' disc produce this:

A BD-RE goes well:

I will see that it gets reported but I really doubt it will ever get fixed…

 

Did you ever try it at lesser FPS, such as with the FXP setting? I know that is not a 'solution' but it will save me a test ;)

Hi Jim,

 

Thanks for running the test. That is the same error message that I get. And, I too am able to archive sucessfully with BD-RE. I have a feeling it may be because DVD does not support the 24 mbps bitrate. I have read varying articles on the supported bitrate for DVD (from 10 mbps to 15 mbps) .

 

This is unfortunate, because I would rather archive on DVD since the discs are much less expensive that BD.

 

I have not tried to archive on DVD at a lower bitrate (i.e., FXP). If I find some time, I will do so. If you end up testing this, please let me know the results.

I did test at FXP setting (16 fps) and they Archive to DVD.

 

If it is a restriction in DVD format then Roxio can do nothing about it!!! You noticed that Canon’s external burner will not make a DVD with them too.

 

For my usage, Archive AVCHD ranks right up there with a Horn on a Rat;)

 

If that is all you are doing, load them in MyDVD and burn a disc…

 

Or if you really want an “archive”, burn a data disc!

Thanks Jim. Just trying to keep the same file structure as on the Canon (not sure if that even matters) . Will try and burn a data disc.

I got an answer back and it seems the upper limit for AHCHD on a DVD is 18 mbps

 

That explains why yours and mine are not going to work. This is an international standard and it will not be changed.

 

 

 

 

 

I am surpised that archiving is limited to the 18 mbps bitrate, because it is just archving (i.e. copying) the files to the disc. Maybe I just don't understand the process of archiving.

 

Since the limit is 18 mbps, will this also impact my ability to burn a data disc as you suggested below?

You are not really archiving anything!

 

You are making an AVCHD disc…

 

Just like making a VCD or DVD Movie is not "archiving". Burning files onto a Data Disc is an archive! Data is Data and no restrictions apply to a Data Disc.

 

It any case, it is a restriction of the AVCHD – DVD Standard. Just like you cannot burn a DVD Standard onto a CD…

 

AVCHD was a format that was in competition with Blu-ray. It Lost!

 

In time one of 2 things will happen. AVCHD discs will gain or hold in popularity or they will lose and Players will drop the capable of even playing them. Notice how few DVD Players will even play a VCD these days?

 

Roxio's implementation of Archive AVCHD video more closely resembles a Plug & Burn that can be done with a minimum of time & effort.
