Unable To Make Hd Dvd

Question

The burn attempt aborts after around 60% encoding. The error message reads:

 

"Could not record the disc because there is a problem with the source material.

Result Code = -18771"

 

What does this mean? Is one of my video clips corrupted? Is it a problem with the DVD media?

 

Thanks,

Peter

If you choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button that will determine if the issue is related to the media (which I don't think it is). What is the source for the video and what are its specs?

I tried setting it up again using a new DVD-R disc. This time it performed properly.

 

I don't believe I have any way of reviewing a Blu-ray Disc Image on my Mac. I guess I should invest in some BD-RW discs for checking out new discs on my Blu-ray player. Does it take a long time to prepare a used BD-RW for a subsequent use? I remember how long the old CD-RW discs took to erase for reuse. It made more sense to just burn a CD-R and discard the first if it did not turn out right.

 

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately I have simmilar problem as Peter10.

I downloaded clip from YouTube, using Miro and saving it as mp4, with following parameters:

 

Duration: 0:03:25

Data Size: 58.86 MB

Bit Rate: 2.40 Mbps

 

Video Tracks:

H.264, 1280 × 720, 25 fps, 2.27 Mbps

 

Audio Tracks:

MPEG-4 Audio stereo, 44.1 kHz, 128 kbps

 

I made some changes in iMovie (additional text, transmissions etc) and the I export the movie:

 

Duration: 0:03:25

Data Size: 200.43 MB

Bit Rate: 8.18 Mbps

 

Video Tracks:

H.264, 1280 × 720, 30.12 fps, 8.07 Mbps

 

Audio Tracks:

MPEG-4 Audio stereo, 44.1 kHz, 109 kbps

 

Now I tried to burn it in Roxio 10 on DVD in high definition.

There's no problem with playing the videao on MPEG streamclip, QuickTime player.

But in Tost 10, afetr 6% I have result -18771, even when I make "Save as Disc Image"

"Couldn't complete the last command because there is a problem with the source material".

 

Whats happend?

 

Best regards

A video player can skip over dropped frames but Toast has to read every frame when encoding. Also, that 12 fps doesn't seem right. Since you edited this in iMovie you don't need to export it from there. Instead, choose the Video tab in the Toast Media Browser and select your iMovie Project to add to the main Toast window. Maybe that will take care of the problem.
