I will be happy to assist you with this.
Can you be a little more specific? Is it only this particular video that is failing to burn?
Have you tried other videos, just to ensure that the functionality is still there? If it is only this particular video, make sure you go through all the normal things. Like changing the disc, rebooting, etc.
This is just to make sure that the problem is related solely to that video. If it is, can you give me the parameters on that video? How large is it? What is the resolution? How did you create the whole thing?
I understand that the video was created in iMovie, but what is the source? A webcam? Another video? Also, have you tried a different disc? Or are you still trying with that original disc?
Have you ensured that the burner and software are indeed functioning? by attempting a test burn using a different video?
I apologize if this is repetitive. We are trying to determine the root cause. And if the root cause is that specific video, we need to know that. If you can burn a different video, then we know the issue is that specific file.
It should not take hours if you just try to burn a small video. If you are sending a full project, you are correct. But we are just trying to test functionality here. Knowing for certain that there is no physical issue with the burner and the system is imperative to move forward. Also, I will be able to work on this whenever you take the next steps. I will be notified as soon as you make a posting here.
I have had this issue in the past, and I was able to fix it by opening the movie in Quicktime, exporting it as a .mov file and then burning it to DVD. Hope this is helpful.
Yes, that is the app I was using. Give it a shot - there is a good chance it will at least allow you to work around the issue.
Don't think you can burn from within Quicktime. You need to use iDVD
To export: Open your video in Quicktime, then go to File>ExportName the exported movie, and make sure "Format" is set to "Movie"
That should create a .mov file that you can then open and burn in iDVD.
Alright; I'll be around all night. Just let me know how it goes.
Unfortunate. Here is how someone else with that same error fixed it. Let me know if you think this might apply to your case:
"I had the same error using iMovie and iDVD but now it's fixed.What I did is that I had to go back into imovie and make sure my chapter marks are correctly aligned with my movie (i.e. not in a middle of a transition). Also make sure your audio track "ends" correctly in the movie and not interfering with the chapter marks or transition."
The plist files for what? iDVD?
So the movie itself has no audio throughout the entire thing?
Which version of iDVD are you currently running?
That is the newest version as far as I can tell.
I don't think deleting cache would help. I am basically at a loss at this point. Aside from starting the project over from scratch, I dont really have any other suggestions.
