Are you saying that, in step 8, you WERE able to create an ISO file?
Errors at 98% in are nearly always related to a problem interfacing with the disc drive. If you can create an ISO, then that would confirm that is the case and there are workarounds and possible solutions.
No, I received the Error while trying to create and ISO file. I gave up trying to burn directly to a disc a long time ago.
It's rare to see a fail that late in your project.
Do you have a stop marker at the end of your project? You should not.
Do you have an area on your timeline in which there is no video? This too can cause an error?
If you go to the Preferences (under the Edit menu) and on the General page, uncheck the option for hardware acceleration, are you able to produce your ISO?
Have you ensured that you're directing the ISO file to be created into a directory folder that has no other files in it?
I do have a marker at the end of the video
No, I don't have any blank video
Yes, I do have other files in the target folder
I will try with it with your suggestions.
Well I tried with no stop menu, no blank video, hardware acceleration unchecked, and no files in the target directory and I still got an error message at 98% and compiling media/
One other thing to try.
Do a Save As and save a copy of your project. Then slice your project in half and delete the last half in your copy. Can you output an ISO from there?
