After trying to burn our first DVD copy on a project, we got a message that the disk was successfully built with no mention of any problems, the disk was ejected, and we were prompted to insert another. Fortunately, we decided to check the first disk before doing so, because when we tried to play it on our DVD player, we got the following message on the screen:
Please eject the disk
Playback feature may not be available on this disk
We never encountered this exact message before. My husband tried putting the DVD in his iMac and it ejected it immediately without reading it. We are puzzled. Everything seems to be working in Encore. Does anyone have any idea what may be the trouble? Thanks.
Create an ISO (Encore) or folder on your hard drive and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
Imgburn will read the ACTUAL disc brand from the disc, which is not always the same as the box label (Memorex is notorious for buying "anything" and putting it inside a Memorex box)
When you write to disc with Imgburn, use the SLOWEST possible speed setting, so your burner has the best chance to create "good, well formed" laser burn holes... since no DVD player is required to read a burned disc, having a "good" one from a high quality blank will help
Use Taiyo Yuden single layer or Verbatim Two layer Or Falcon Pro for inkjet printable Two layer
I ended up building the iso file, then going into that folder, right-clicking the file and burning to disk. It worked without having to obtain any new software. So the project itself appears to be sound.
So yes, as you say, something is not working with the direct Encore to DVD process. Does anyone know what would be the reason for this? And is it something that can be addressed?
As well as the below, right click the Encore icon and select Run as Administrator, which is NOT the same thing as running the computer with the Administrator account, and which fixes several "odd" problems... To create a two layer DVD (or a BluRay?), you MUST have Encore set to use the Run as Administrator option
