That usually means that you don't have a DVD -- or the correct format of DVD (+R or -R) in your DVD burner.
Do you have a compatible blank disc in your drive?
I have 2 types---the old disc is "Staples DVD-R 4.75GB and the newly bought
are "Dynes...DVD-R 16X 4.7GB (from Best Buy)
This most often happens when:
1.) the drive is not a full multi-drive (takes everything), and the media is incompatible with it. Could be -R, +R, +RW, or maybe DL. If the drive is not designed to work with it, you get that message.
2.) the media is not being properly read by the burner. This can mean several things:
A.) the burner needs a firmware update
B.) the media is dirty
C.) the media is bad, or low-quality
I see from your second post, that you are using "store-brand" blank media. These, like Memorex and TDK, are purchased from the lowest priced mfgr., and are then rebranded with the store's name on them. They can come from all sorts of shoddy companies, and a spindle can have discs from many different mfgrs. so one might work well, then the next not at all.
I strongly recommend either Verbatim, or Taiyo Yuden. I strongly recommend against Memorex, Ritek, TDK, or any store-brand. Life will be much easier.
I think Hunt and I are pointing the same direction. You've got DVD-R disc. Make sure you're not trying to load them in a drive that only writes to DVD+R.
-you are getting thru a little-I am trying Sony 4.7GB DVD+R---will
You guys are wonderful
-thank you-the program is burning to disc----the
I did go to my file and export to dvd instead of burning from PE---I think
the time is shorter to do that
Hope that the burn is successful and that you can report - mission accomplished!
Sad to say I feel like looking in to another dvd burner/movie making
One test, to see if your problem is systemic, or with PrE, is to use PrE to Burn to Folder on the computer. Then, use a freeware burning program, ImgBurn, to do the physical burn.
As many users can attest, there are a myriad of programs and Processes, that can get in the way of any Adobe program burning properly. ImgBurn gets around many of these, though mechanical and firmware issues will still trip it up, as will the blank media. ImgBurn will also give you full specs. on your burner, plus your media. Neat!
I'd try this test method first, before I started replacing things. It'll take minutes, and you will likely get tons of answers.
