Canon Hg10 Avchd .mts Files => Nxt Pro Mydvd=> Blu Ray Project =>Bd-R Disc=> Samsung Bd Player

Question

I filled the HG-10 camcorder up. I wanted to archive home videos on BD disk for long term storage and playback. Before deleting .mts files from the camcorder I want to make sure the Creator NXT Pro software is a workable solution. I fought hours and hours with trying to accomplish burning a disc using the packaged Corel MyDVD program. I tried with chapters and without, All video clips as one movie and each short clip as its own movie. All of these combinations resulted in hours of waiting and eventual receipt of the "Error when encoding menus" . So I tried changing the render option from hardware to software...no help. I eventually I checked the AVCHD without menus option box when creating a new project...finally I was able to complete the burn process encode, format write and complete steps. I tried playing on laptop which failed (not sure which was default player) then opened CyberLink Power DVD and it required update but did play the BD I burned. I then tried playing it in my Samsung Blu Ray player, failed with unsupported playback, check/clean disc error.

And now to my request. Given what I am trying to accomplish, what is the best suggested method? Is it to take these AVCHD/.MTS video clips and create a DVD, Blu-Ray or AVCHD project? It would be ideal to keep the AVC H.264 high def video quality, but at this point I just want to archive my family video memories on optical media that will last for generations to view. DVD or Blu Ray Disk I don't care. I am not sure what to attribute the failed encoding of the menus. I tried editing chapters, different backgrounds and buttons, but never was able to burn with all of the fancy video project options. I am running this Roxio software on a Dell M4600 i7 quad core and 8 GB RAM. The OS is Win 7 Pro 64 bit (but I believe I installed this software in the X86 32-bit partition). I have an AMD ATI FirePro M5950 (FireGL) Mobility Pro Graphics adapter/video card. I would appreciate any suggestions you pros can provide. - kevin

You're better off copying all of the files, from your camcorder, to a large hard drive. You can then do whatever you want with the files, at your leisure.

I'll echo what GrandpaBruce said, start by copying all your .mts files to a large hard drive, and if you're worried, get another physical drive and make a second copy. Now you can reuse the card in your video camera, and work with your video files at your leisure.

 

Also, don't plan on your optical media lasting for "generations". As much as the claims are for long-term stability, you shouldn't depend on it.

The advice on Backup is sound and you should follow it ;)

 

But your burning problem is not being resolved and it should work!

 

I am a bit confused by your post, you mention burning as an AVCHD Project with No Menus...

 

With MyDVD it is impossible to burn an AVCHD Project onto a Blu-Ray disc!

 

Yet you seem to imply that is what you did??? :huh:

 

But that is a minor point and what you really need to try now is a proper repair to see if the 'Encoding Menu' error can be eliminated!!!

 

First thing to do is to turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc.

 

Now insert your Roxio Disc.

 

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

 

When you reach the screen where
Repair
is offered, choose that!

 

When the Repair competes, turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.

 

Another 'trick' we use is to Burn to a Folder set or ISO File in MyDVD, rather than trying to render and burn in the same step.

 

Then use Burn Data Disc to make the actual burn onto a disc. ;)
