I have been using PE 10 for some time and have done several projects. When I burn it says that it is complete but the DVD is blank. I have tried to burn a folder and that works. I tried to take that folder and burn the DVD but, I wasn't able to figure out how to use imgburn yet. The current project I have won't burn to DVD but, I was able to burn a Blu-ray. Two different drives. The project I had was over 2 hours long so I cut it down to under 2 hours still wont burn. No error messages. I even went back and tried to burn a project that I done in the past and it wouldn't finish the burn and stuck at 99%. Is there software that is incompatible with PE 10?
Any help appreciated.
To use ImgBurn, select the option to Burn Folder to Disc, then select the VIDEO_TS folder (the folder itself, not the files inside) and click the Burn button.
Before we try to figure out why there's no data moving between the program and your disc drive, let's see if you can complete the task with another program.
Since my last post I was able to go back to a previous project and get it to burn to the DVD. I then went back to the project I'm having problems with and had the same original problem. So, I don't think it is any software that I have my machine. The only other variable that I have is I have video from 2 different cameras. I'm going to pull out the clips from other camera and see what happens.
>video from 2 different cameras
I don't have any saved links, but if that is two different KINDS of video, I am fairly sure that I have read in the past that PreElements does not work well in that situation
The solution I have read is to convert to a common format/codec for editing
It kills me that it PE 10 doesn't tell you if there is a problem. I pulled out the videos and tried to burn. Same problem with saying it burned and the disk is blank. I tried to burn to a folder and it says it is done but, nothing shows up in the folder. I have 30 hours into this video with no solution in sight.
OK, is it the problem Project, that DID Burn to Folder?
If so, first check inside the resulting VIDEO_TS folder, and see if you have the IFO, BUP and VOB files. Then use a DVD software player, such as the great, free MediaPlayer Classic HC, to see if that folder plays. If so, then try Steve's instructions for ImagBurn, to see if it can Burn to Disc.
Also, what brand of blank media are you using? I recommend Falcon Pro, Verbatim, or Taiyo-Yuden, as the only really reliable brands.
