DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

Hey everyone. I'm very new to this DVD thang. I'm using Nero Vision Express2 to burn on a Dell PC. I just got an I/O DVD Burner. I downloaded a Phish DVD from this site. I checked the MD5, the files seem fine. The problem is that whenever I try to burn it says "Unable to Prepare Data For Transcoding, Prepare session Failed, Transcoding Of Videos Failed" I'm doing everyhting that it says in the manual. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

Re: DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

Are you trying to butn the discs as a "Video-DVD" project? I have not used Nero Vision, but it seems that it should work seamlessly. Give some more detials about OS and what type of disc you're telling Nero to burn and I'll try to further diagnose.

Re: DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

I'm trying to burn as a "Video-DVD" project. I add the files I've downloaded to the contents page. The files then get imported to a Nerovision folder. When I go to burn, it says the files are being transcoded. Sometimes the transcoding completes & it starts burning to disc. Eventually the process always fails. I'm not sure what OS is... Operating System?

Re: DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

Ahh...I'll bet that the video is PAL? Nero will sometimes try to convert to NTSC before making a DVD. This conversion, unfortunately, is lossy and renders the disc untradeable.

Try making a data disc and put just the Video_TS folder in the root of the disc, along with a blank Audio_TS folder.

Actually the dvd I downloaded is NTSC. What is a Video_TS folder? I don't have one of those on my computer. I just downloaded the dvd files to a folder in my documents & then added them to the contents in Nero Vision.

Re: DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

Okay..I figured it out. I didn't even need to go into the Nero Vision Program. I opened up Nero Express & chose the DVD-Video otion & BAM!! There was the Video_TS folder. I added the files in there & burnrd them with no problem. Thanks for your help RainDawg, I appreciate it.

Re: DVD Burning Process Keeps Failing

Good! Anything else you need, just ask....

PS This is exactly how I (and many others) burn their DVDs, so you're set now.

Question Help with DVD playing/burning

HI - I too am new to downloading and burning DVDs. I downloaded a Phish montage DVD, and got VIDEO_TS.IFO, VIDEO_TS.VOB, VIDEO_TS.BUP and VTS_01_0.VOB thru VTS_01_3.VOB files, plus a text and md5 file. (The md5 was in the VIDEO_TS folder, although i think it's supposed to be outside that folder with the text file?)
I'm on a Mac dual processor G3 tower. I have VLC media player v0.8.1 but when i play the video there is no audio. It will play all the VOB files separately too, but no audio. How do i get the audio and then how do i burn this to a DVD: i have both iDVD and Titanium Toast or do i need something else? Thanks for the help

Burning DVDs on a Mac

Did you use xACT to run the md5 file on the DVD files and make sure that they are all OK? Then I would take the md5 out of the VIDEO_TS folder and try playing it that way and see if you get audio. Also, did you try using the Mac DVD player to play the DVD and see if you have audio using that player?

Well, you aren't telling anybody what OS, what burning program, and what you have tried to do that was unsuccessful.

But, besides that, you can only fit ~ 4.3 GB worth of info on a typical DVD, so I'm not sure what to tell you about how to burn your DVD.

Re: Help with DVD playing/burning

thanks so much for the quick reply, since i posted i took the md5 out of the VIDEO_TS folder and threw the folder into toast and burned it. The DVD does not contain the FBI warning Card and other titles that I see in the original files but all 3 of the video files (with audio) that contain the content have been combined into one and play just fine. I just guess I'll experiment further.....
VLC still plays without audio but the Mac DVD player plays with audio. i guess i'm on my way, thanks!!!
