"Duplicate File Found"

Not sure what is going on. "Duplicate File Found" at disk build.


The first time I encoded with AME at too high a bit rate. I re-encoded at lower bit rate and deleting the original files. I then renamed the re-encoded files to the original filenames used in the project. I don't see any duplicate files anywhere.


Then I tried deleting all of the projects asset files and cleaned the media database. I then re-imported all file assets and rebuilt the DVD menues from scratch. I still get this message "Duplicate File Found".


I have run out of options other than wiping out the enitre project and starting from the very begining.

    So we are all on the same page, by DVD content,  you mean the "DVD-ROM Content" in the build tab?


    Certainly there were various red flags, which you were trying to address:


    "reencoded, deleted, renamed" and "copied a backup copy" are concepts that Encore is not fond of.


    But how could you get a duplicate file, even in the ROM content?

    Encore should not even care what is going into the "DVD-ROM Conten" folder.

    I agree.

    I am having a related problem. (Mac OS 10.8.3)


    My DVD-ROM Content is causing the DVD image build and DVD Master build to show "0 Objects" in the resulting disc image .iso and the physical DVD. There is not even a Video TS folder "visible".

    However, the physical Video DVD will launch the DVD Player and play as expected when inserted into a computer. The DVD-ROM Content is of course not visible in the Finder as mentioned before.


    I have authored a second DVD, also with DVD-ROM Content (Adobe PDF documents) and there doesn't seem to be a problem...


    ... I think that I have found the source of the Problem:


    File names for the DVD-ROM Content must adhere to a standard naming convention.


    -NO SPECIAL CHARACTERS-. (Blank spacing between words doesn't seem to cause this problem)

    Hmm... I have several saved message links about "odd" file names causing problems... but those are about the direct files, not ROM files... very interesting
