Taking Ages To Finalise A Disk!

Question

I successfully did my first VHS-DVD exercise a few days ago with a 40 minute video and was thrilled with the result. I recorded to a Lightscribe 16x DVD+R.

This time I set the program to record 1hr 30minutes of video and it obligingly stopped the transfer on time and I got the 'finishing' message. This time I am using a 8x DVD-R.

Two hours later it is still 'finishing'.

Is this normal???? Would the different type of disk (i.e. 8x as opposed to 16x) be making the difference?

What are your PC Specs - OS, CPU speed, RAM, HDD free space, etc.?

 

Keep in mind you are trying to pack 1:30 material onto a disc that holds 1 hour and that is going to take some time to recompress each frame :huh:

 

It is best if you do the Capture as One Step then do the Burn as another Step (Capture-Edit-Save) ;)

Thank you Jim - really appreciate your fast response. I have yet to try out your suggestion but will report back in once I have.

By the way I just got a whole bunch of identical emails from this address, timed as received over 10 minutes or so, advising me that 'coitus snakes' had responded to my question.

Clicked on the link of two of them but no new posts.

This wouldn't be a hacker, would it? Just wondering.

"Snakes" has been banned from this forum because of improper and abusive language.

 

2 hours for encoding a 90 minutes video might not be bad at all depending on your CPU, etc.

Hmmm thanks for that. I had actually done a 30 minute video in under half an hour previously, but it was on a different type of DVD so maybe I'll go back to those.

Just wondering - if 'Snakes' has been banned, how can s/he still respond to posts?

 

He can't. Do you still see any of his posts?

 

What do you mean by a different type of video? You would have to explain exactly what you did before anyone can comment on that.

 

Burn speed is not much of a factor in creating a video DVD. Most of the time required is the encoding to DVD compliant video (if you are creating a proper video DVD and not just a data DVD containing video files)

All these questions but you have not supplied any details of your PC or your Project???

Sorry Jim - as I have had success with one project already I don't imagine it's a problem with my PC system. I just want to try out your last suggestion before I go deeper into it.

Will give more details if I still experience problems.

Do you tune up your car based on some generic model or do you use the specific make, model and details? ;)
