I have a video I edit in premiere cs4, exported an .mpg file that I import into encore to create a DVD. This works mostly fine (I have to delete the .xmp* file before importing to encore).
Today I edited the video, re-encoded the mpg file using quality 5 and 2 pass vbr, and added a slide show (about 6 photos) to the encore project. It also builds fine to a disc image (iso file). But when I try to burn the iso file using windows 7, it tells me the iso image is invalid. I tried imgburn and got an error message like this:
session 1 track 1 MODE1 .... 2054
dvd format: MODE1 .... 2048
If I ask imgburn to continue it then says something about CSS and encryption, which I don't use, so I assume the iso file is too messed up.
I burned a DVD5 directly from encore, and it works in a dvd player.
Any idea why this invalid iso happens and whether there is a work-around?
Since cs4 is not the latest version, I assume there is no hope of bug fix?
For CS4 you must update the Roxio component http://forums.adobe.com/thread/400484

I downloaded and ran the px engine and then I ran encore as administrator. It produced the same bad iso file.
I tried making a dvd folder instead of iso file, and then used nero to burn the files. Nero reported some .bup files should be same as ifo but are not. I burned the dvd anyway but it does not play.
It seems the only way to make a dvd is to burn it directly, then rip the iso off the dvd. Are these problems caused by running 64-bit windows 7? This used to work fine in 32-bit vista.
If there is no solution, perhaps I should run this in a 32 bit win7 in a virtual machine?
There seem to be major problems in the disc creation process. I am struggling since several days now and I am not able to produce a working Blu-Ray Disk or iso image with Encore 5.5:
- when producing Blu-Ray ISO images, you get an ISO that is recognized as DVD iso in all virtual drive programs. Therefore, you cann not burn them on a BD-R disc, also viewing them is not possible because it is a "DVD with blu-ray content".
- when burning directly to disk, Encore does not close the sessing. This means, the Disk is not playable on all home Blue-Ray players. It was playable on my computer, but after closing the session manually the disc was a coaster.
- when burning on a virtual burner (Virtual CD 10), the Blue-Ray plays ok on my computer, but I am NOT able to make a ISO image from this disk because some errors (unreadable blocks) on the disk are reported during creation and image creation stops.
- from time to time (not reproduceable), Encore produces an additional AACS folder on the created Blu-Ray.
I am an experienced user and dont have any issues with other software solutions, but with Encore I was not able to get any usable results so far.
Win 7 x64 SP1
I am not able to produce a working Blu-Ray Disk or iso image with Encore 5.5:
Encore CS5 (not 5.1); iso mounted with Daemon Tools Lite and played on TotalMedia Theater 5 shows as a BD disk, and plays fine. I have burned BD disks that play fine.
I would post a new thread re the BD problem, since avpromedia is dealing with DVD issues. (I have not had problems with routine DVD iso or folder builds and burns.)
avpromedia, as a test, I would create a new project and try the project, or a simple test project, there. I do not have a problem with the processes you describe, and suspect that this project is corrupt.
I recreated the dvd project from scratch and it solves this problem. It can now write iso file that imgburn can burn without error, and the dvd plays in a dvd player.
However, this new project became very sluggish after I created the menus. Typing one character into a button takes 5 seconds or more to show up. But the CPU is not busy at all. Is this another sign of corrupted project; should I recreate the project another time??
I'm using a intel Q6600 2.4Ghz processor, 4GB ram, and 64 bit win7.
I am running into this exact same error with an Encore project that previously had no issues. No changes have been made. I'm wondering if something changed with ImgBurn? I tried burning an iso I had previously created, but got the error in the original post of this thread:
Session 1, Track 1
IMage track format: MODE1/2054
DVD track format: MODE1/2048
So I opened the original Encore project (which uses original, DVD formatted (no transcode required) files rendered out of Premiere), and the new ISO returned the same error when I attempted to burn with ImgBurn.
