What computer operating system is involved? Are you doing a burn to DVD-VIDEO standard or widescreen on DVD disc or AVCHD on DVD disc? NTSC or PAL?
1. Have you tried another brand/type DVD disc?
2. How much free hard drive space is there at the location where the Disc Encoding files are saved (See Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks and the Disc Encoding category)?
3. Do you have a stop marker at the end of the last file on the project's Timeline? Does the burn to go to successful completion with Timeline markers and Movie menus?
4. What are the readings for Space Required and Bitrate in the Quality area of the burn dialog?
5. Is this issue confined to this one project?
Please consider, give more details, and then we can decide what next. If any questions or need clarification on the above, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks for your questions ATR.
I have. Successfully burned the DVD by removing the menu, menu marker, scene markers and the end marker. The file was 3.1 GB burning at 8.00mbps. I was burning wide screen NTSC. I tried cleaning the hard drive first but the project still failed at 99% of the burn with "unknown error 2130906112"
I have added the menu and only two scene markers to see if that will burn successfully. You questions helped trouble shoot by investigating the menu and scene markers.
Thanks for the update.
From what you wrote, I think that the major issue might have been a stop marker at the end of the last item on the Timeline. That stop marker is not needed and causes burn to failures.
Also, look out for spacing of the Timeline markers (at least 5 frames between), and look for too close buttons in the movie menu customization area of the program (if problem, you should see red frames around the too close buttons).
Please update us on your progress as your schedule permits.
The final update is that when I added back the menu, menu marker, two scene markers and the stop marker, the project burned successfully.
Perhaps something in my original menu was corrupt. I do notice that the projects are usually quite sensitive when adding and editing the menu. If you make too many changes at this time PE11 often crashes. While the stop marker has been blamed for many generations of PE, just removing the stop marker did not help in this case.
I appreciate the trouble shooting tips and I am sure others will as well.
Thanks for the update with the great news of successful burn to. Great job.
Interesting mention of the stop marker at the end of the last file of the Timeline content in the successful burn to.
Glad for your success. Best wishes moving forward.
