Cannot burn a DVD

I previously authored a VIDEO_TS folder & now Launch DVD Burner & select the VIDEO_TS folder.

VRDTS comes up with a Size and Volume name & recognizes my DVD burner. But the write speed is blank and Disc type, Size & Blank are all N/A. And the Burn DVD button is grayed out. I tried both T-Y and Verbatim discs but it made no difference.

Yet I burned the DVD using ImgBurn with no problem.

This is the first time I tried the VRDTS DVD Burner on my new PC, but it used to work OK on my old PC.

Any idea what might be the problem?

It could be a burner compatibility issue.

What version number of VideoReDo are you using? Help>About

Can you try the latest Beta available here:
http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showthread.php?t=6961

If that does not resolve your issue, Try this...
1) Install this driver... http://www.duplexsecure.com/en/downloads
2) Reboot your PC
3) Open VideoReDo hold down the Shift key and then click Tools->Options
4) Near the bottom of the options list there is one called "Burner Protocol" set it to 1 and press OK
5) Launch the DVD burner using the DVD->Launch DVD burner menu item
6) Try burning the disk again. (the files should still be on your hard drive if you did not delete the folder)

If that still fails then there is an additional option in VideoReDo that allows you to use ImgBurn for burning instead of our burner. All you have to do is install ImgBurn then set that same option mentioned above ("Burner Protocol") to 3.
Following is the procedure:
1) Download and install the latest version of ImgBurn...
http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
2) Open VideoReDo, hold Shift and click Tools->Options
3) Change the Burner Protocol option to 3 and hit OK
Now click DVD->Launch DVD Burner. If it's setup correctly then it should launch ImgBurn instead of our burner. From now on when you're creating a DVD VideoReDo will automatically launch ImgBurn for the final burning stage. In our experience ImgBurn tends to work OK with drives that our burner does not support.

I am using vers 3.20.2.609

The drive is an HP drive that came with the new HP computer. I don’t know who makes it though. The PC system indicates it’s an HP DH16ANLH, and so does the actual label on the drive.

After I posted I did some more searching & came across another message that mentioned what you just suggested. But in that particular message it stated that the person’s drive was not recognized. VRDTS does recognize my drive, if that makes any difference.

Since I already have ImgBurn on the PC I went ahead & changed the Burner Protocol to 3. ImgBurn now comes up when I go to burn a DVD. I have not tried ImgBurn yet going through VRDTS but will be trying it shortly.

Same situation

I think I'm in the same situation as Stumped. I just bought VRD TVSuite V4 with H.264 from DVR Upgrade, and I have a 1 year old HP desktop. I selected a Tivo show I wanted to burn to DVD, but when I selected the portion of the show to burn and hit Create DVD, the Burn DVD bar is grayed out. I hit Shift, then Tools/Options, but I didn't see where to change the Burner Protocol to 3. Could someone walk me through this? Thanks.

Recoding output

Also, it's taking forever to recode the output. I selected a 1 hour, 8 minute segment of a show to burn to DVD, and when I hit Create DVD, it takes me to the window that says Recoding Output, and it's scheduled to take 3 hours to complete this task. I did this earlier, waited 3 hours for the task to complete, then tried to hit Burn DVD, but the Burn DVD bar was grayed out. I would appreciate some help. Thanks!

For me it was item #57 when I hit Shift, then Tools/Options. But I have VRDTVS V3, so yours may be different.

I don't know about the speed because I've never worked with H.264.

Recoding speed is highly CPU dependent. 3x real time is not unheard of on older CPUs.

As for the burning issue try the same things phd suggested to Stumped. One of them should take care of the problem.
