I inserted a DVD Media Element and got the Can Not Find DVD
Volume Error and thus got the dreaded red X place holder. Every
time I try to set the folder property I enter it and then it goes
away. My DVD video_ts folder is in a "myLocalDVDcontent" folder on
the root level with my project. Please help, it's driving me
I ran into this problem as well on Vista\Director11.
Here's what I did to work around it:
Insert a valid DVD-video disc into the authoring machine. It
can be ANY DVD-video disc, I was only using it to trick Director
into creating the cast member.
Insert a DVD media element into my project cast. Director
should see the DVD disc you put into your DVD drive, and then
create the DVD cast member.
added the following code in a on PrepareMovie handler where
member(1) is my DVD media element and _movie.path &
<directory info> are where my DVD vob files are. :
member(1).folder = _movie.path &
Play the Director movie for as long as it takes for the line
of code above to execute.
Save the Director file and remove the DVD Disc you were
Play the Direcotr file again, this time without the DVD Disc
you were using to confirm Director is pulling the DVD info from the
file directory you specified.
Additionally, I leave the on Prepare Movie code in my movie,
because as you noted Dirctor doesn't seem to want you to be able to
set the file path from the cast member properties....
Kinda of lame that this would be necessary, but it's the only
way I could get this to work.
