"writing Lead In" Problem

Question

tsantee, I have attempted to make a disc of You Tube videos using Wondershare You Tube Downloader. It goes through encoding fine, Toast 10 even tells me I have NTSC and Pal formats mixed and gives me an option to select "Convert" to NTSC . Even if the files don't need converting (they are all NTSC), it does the encoding BUT when it gets to" Writing Lead In" and shows 10 seconds,28 seconds or whatever the time is...it NEVER finishes this step-even if I leave it overnight. I end up having to abort and get a coaster disc. Can you or anyone else help ? It seems I'm close but yet so far away.Thanks much

Try saving as disk image first, in order to separate the encoding and burning processes.

Then double-click the image file to load it into Toast, insert your blank disc, and burn.

 

Some drives go into sleep mode on some systems after some time, and may have trouble 'waking up' when the encoding is done and it is time to do some burning. Entering sleep mode is prevented by inserting a disc just right before the burning process starts, e.g. from a disk image.

 

If the drive doesn't write the lead-in, then the disc may still be blank and thus still usable.
