Mydvd Disk Creation Fails With 80% Done & No Messages

Question

MyDVD2012 FAILS and hangs at 80% of BlueRay creation and NO messages.

 

Other BlueRay compilations do burn OK so it is not the burner.

 

MyDVD simply "Locks Up" at 80% completion.

 

It always locks at "Writting Format"

 

It is a big project with 20 Gb to be burned.

 

But with Zero information as to the problem, it seems hopeless to debug.

 

 

 

I have tried a Reinstall of softeare and nothing different.

 

i suspect it is something in the layout of the project ??????

 

Any advice appreciated.

 

Thanks .... Dj

20 GB onto a DVD???

 

A better explanation of your Project will help!

 

But in most cases like this... You will have to pre-render each and every element of your Project, then recreate it in MyDVD!

 

Use VideoWave for that but Please describe your Project in detail before jumping into that ;)

 

More Questions???

 

You posted other issues ~ BD Plug in & issues with adding audio files.

 

Were these ever resolved???

Dennis is doing a BlueRay so 20Gb could be correct

OK. Yes, I always use VideoWave and created 10 seperate files.

I only use BlueRay BD-R and most projects burn successfully to BlueRay.

 

In this case, I get the Burn process to hang up eventhough I have myDVD do a CHECK of the final setup and it says everything is OK.

The final project uses 19 of the 24 GB available space.

Reran again and it did finally give this statement after doing everything 100% successfully.

 

Project_BuildToDevice() AuthorScript call Failed. Error While Writing Format.

 

Nothing was burned to the Blue Ray.

Jim:

 

In a prior post, I had the VideoWave <<CRASH>> when adding an audio track Audio. I did your recommended REPAIR option from the original software and it apparently fixed the problem when creating a VideoWave sound track on the SlideShow. So i now have all these files that play individually fine on the computer. But when i use myDVD to burn the BlueRay, I get this strange final complaint.

We've seen that before with both AVCHD and Blu Ray discs. Roxio knows about it but can't seem to fix it. Read this and substitute blu ray for AVCHD. Basically it says to make either an ISO file or a Folder Set and then burn that to the disc. Good luck.

 

Edit: I forgot to mention that what happens is that Creator sometimes doesn't make a needed folder.

? Your response confuses me ?

I use only Verbatim BD-R Blue Ray 4x speed and I do NOT use any AVCHD so I don't know what you are recommending.

I have dozens of Verbatin BD-R successfully created.

Do you really recommend a 19 GB ISO ?

What is the error mean: Error while Writing Format ?

I think everything was 99.9% done as you can see in the screen capture.

When you say Roxio can't seem to FIX it ..... ? What are you saying ???

Thanks for additional info and what I should do next ? Dennis

IF you actually read the link, you wouldn't have had those questions! :huh:

What is wrong with a 19 G ISO? Do you know what an ISO is? Did you miss the part about substituting the words "blu ray" for AVCHD when burning the disc?

 

The error message as I told you above is that one of the two required folders for either an AVCHD OR a blu ray disc is not being created and written to the disc. Your project is complete but not the rest of it. Look at one of those successfully burned blu ray discs. See the folders?

 

The error has been around for Creator 2010, 2011, 2102 and now NXT. Does that qualify that Roxio for Roxio not fixing it?

 

Don't ever believe those progress bars!

 

You were lucky in the past. The error doesn't always show up.

Thanks Digital Guru ! But I did read your beautiful picture link. The AVCHD confused me as I never create DVD's and only BlueRays as mentioned previously using Verbatim BD-R. My 99% success in the past was to always select for the movies as Purpose: BLUE_RAY Authoring Video Quality: Blue_Ray-HQ ( file.MPG) Often my bigger files are 5 GB each. Each file playe perfect on the PC at 1080p.

 

I have started to wonder if the final two Folders you referenced is because ROXIO can NOT handle my nice elequent 2 PAGE file structure....Each page calls 10 files.

 

What is the MOST number of file folders myDVD allows on a single page ? I think it is 15 as shown in the attachment that has 15 seperate movies/slide shows.

 

I think ROXIO has some internal HIDDEN agenda that prevents more and thus caused the WRITE FORMAT Error ???? Just my opinion or Guess ??

 

Problem debugging is that it takes 8 hours to get to teh 100% done and <<<<CRASH>>> because ROXIO can not to the WRITE FORMAT.

 

FRUSTRATING...... If only ROXIO would add more debugging descriptors of why its software <<<CRASHES>>>

That's too many on one menu page. Usually limit it to 5 or so . The titles are really buttons and are larger than they look. If you eventually get it to complete you will have navigation issues. How many buttons were on the menu template that you started with (and edited)? That is the usable number. Have you ever [put that many on one disc and have it work correctly?

 

Why are you rejecting the option to burn to an ISO (image file)?

The above Screen capture called "DJ's SB Galleries" is a BlueRay <<SUCCESSFUL>> compilation AND Burn with 15 Buttons (Words for Buttons).

I have ALWAYS been SUCCESSFUL when I create a BlueRay of nominally 20 GB by keeping ALL the files and buttons on the first page.

ROXIO BlueRays seem to constantly screw up whan I have muiltiple pages of 4 movies per page......why I don't know.

 

the start of all these problems is when I created multiple pages of menu items.

 

ROXIO has been a super pain in thebutt the last few years ever since I started only HD productions..... i am looking for another brand of software until these problems of 100% successful compile and then no burn because of WRITE FORMAT errors.

 

Why don't I start Blue Ray with ISO ? Yikes another 20 GB file for my PC Hard Drive..... How successful will I be transferring 20 GB to my Verbatim Blue Ray ???

 

More Beta debugging !

It is not debugging. If a 20g file is a problem for your hard drive then perhaps we know of one issue that must be fixed. You better have 20 times about 3 of free space to make sure that you have enough space for the original rendering. When did you last clean out your proxy files (tools/options/proxy file/clear(. The fiolder where the proxy files are stored can become full and the proxy files need to be cleared. Normally a complete reboot will clear that folder but sometimes it doesn't

 

The image file or folder set only needs to be rendered (encoded) once. After that you can make as many copies of it you wish without re-rendering or taking the chance that a master disc has a glitch so copies made are crap.

 

I have and use (at times) other software; some are better than others. If there is a work around for this, why not try it before spending extra money?

 

You came here to ask for help. There are a lot of suggestions that have been made. Why are you arguing with the suggestions? That is pretty demotivating for those trying to help.

Digital Guru:

 

Have plenty of Hard Disk SPACE - 3 drives of 2 TB available.

I will try the ~ 20 GB ISO file creation and see "IF" it actually can be transferred successfully onto the 25 GB Verbatim BD-R

You also indicate that additional files have to be written to the BlueRay during the ISO transfer.

 

And what do you recommend for the program that reliably transfers the ISO file and "its file structure" to my BlueRay ?

I have had no problems transferring ISO to the small 5 GB DVD's but 25 GB BlueRays are much different.

 

You probably recommend the ROXIO Burn_Disk_Image also for Blue Ray BD-R ?

 

Tx

First creating the iso should tell you if a problem exists when rendering the project. If it is created without errors then that would indicate that the error happens when burning to the disc.

 

There is a free program called ImgBurn that many of us use to burn iso (and folder sets) to a DVD. I believe it also works for BlueRay but as I do not have a BlueRay burner I cannot test it.

All those ROXIO GURUS:

 

I followed your recipe and I have to report another ROXIO Disaster.

 

I successfully created a file.ISO 8.70 GB (9,349,890,048 bytes)

Strange that is is sooo small as the myDVD claimed that 20 GB of the 25 GB would be used.

maybe ISO is more compact.

So I tried the program ROXIO Creator: ROXIO Burn_Disk_Image also for Blue Ray BD-R and the results was a Burn Failure of the Blue Ray.

DOn't tell me my BlueRay hardware has a problem because I just this weekend burnt a different project made in 2012.

 

I suspect ROXIO can not properly handle the ISO for Blue Ray. Yes, I have burned ISO to the puny 5 GB DVD's but this first attempt was a $5. failure ($5. for each BlueRay ruined by Roxio). I looked at the BlueRay and it did set down timing marks for the first track and then <<<Crash>>>. Burning ISO to high density Blue Ray is tricky. To be totally safe, I told ROXIO to burn at the slower 2X speed instead of the 4X speed of nominal BD-R disks.

 

This whole ROXIO thing is very frustrating expecially when you tell me that the original <<CRASHES>> are a ROXIO FAULT that they have not fixed and that this software BUG is even in the newer version.

 

What to do next ????

 

I might try my NERO with ISO transfer IF you can tell me why the binary ISO of 8.7 GB is soo small ?

 

Thanks Guys.

Why would myDVD create an ISO file of 8.8 GB and yet report that 20 of 25 GB is used on my project if I directly burn the project to BleuRay Disk ?

 

IS the ISO file corrupt ? Or is the ISO file that much MORE compact than the disk space requirements when burned to Blue Ray ???????

 

Thanks for any insights.

Is it possible that you might have inadvertently told MyDVD to make a DVD when you built the ISO, Dennis?

 

That figure is suspiciously like the capacity of a double-layer DVD.

Digital Guru: Not.

I only make BlueRays and the first 15 attempts was to burn a BlueRay (like all my previous BlueRays).

With the advice of the OTHER Digital Guru in Red Shirt, i was told to first make an ISO file and then find somebody's BlueRay transfer software to move it from HD to BlueRay.

I suspect myDVD is all screwed up and only made 1/3 my BlueRay --- probably the first menu page of movies.

 

Has anyone tried to make a VIRTUAL BlueRay to then look at an ISO file and see what the heck myDVD created.

 

I find TOXIO myDVD does OK for puny DVD's but does so very poorly wne it comes to BlueRay compilations.

I was also told the newer versions are no better and ROXIO has NOT fixed the known faults that I am experiencing.....

 

Frustrated Photographer.

You realize that the most likely answer was what I described in Post #2...

 

all of us that do BD and AVCHD (I do some that are 2 hours and more) have hit the AuthorScript error from time to time...

 

SOMETIMEs it is VERY hard to work around it.

 

It is Roxio's "fault" only as far as they created AuthorScript. It can not be "fixed" anymore than MS can fix a Blue Screen of Death!

 

TWO Things I want you to try...

 

Do a "Burn" Output to create a Folder Set.

 

Slap together a Project that is the same length as yours only use whatever defaults it presents and do a Folder Set with that one.

 

This way we know if it is an issue with your project of the software -_-

 

Once we know that, we can proceed to a solution.

 

Folder Set in MyDVD:

(Note where it is being created)

 

By the way, do you have any BD-RE discs for testing???
