I tried to burn a VideoStudio project and received this error. Any ideas? Thanks.

If you open the vsp / project on the main Video Studio timelines does that open correctly without any re-link requests and play ok throughout without errors

And does burning something else to disc work in other programs apart from VS?

Actually, I am incorrect about this. The software I was using was VideoStudio My DVD.

My question remains: can you use the burner with other programs?

Given that it is MyDVD, can you also tell us whether you were trying to burn a DVD or a Blu-Ray? MyDVD can certainly burn Blu-Rays but only when you have bought the blu-ray plug-in for VS itself.

I burned a DVD of another project with the MyDVD. I have not tried it with other programs.

Have you tried using the burning module that is in-built in VS instead of MyDVD? One of the difficulties here is that few of us see any real use in MyDVD, and we tend to use the in-built module or a third party one such as Nero, Roxio, Ashampoo Burning Studio or the freeware ImgBurn. You don't need to actually burn a disc either in that module since you can, on the final page, choose to "burn" a folder or a disc image ISO file. That should at least tell you if the burner is working in the module. Similarly, if you go to ImgBurn, for instance, and it allows you to proceed, then you will at least know that the problem is in MyDVD.

Hi
Can you provide a little more info to your problem using MyDVD
1 / are you burning a DVD or Bluray disc
2 / does the problem occur with all projects or attempts to burn a disc
3 / what type of files are you using Mpeg2, Mp4, mov etc
4 / are you using Pal or NTSC type video as you may have different encoding results, have you set File - Project Settings to use correct Pal or Ntsc
5 / Are you able to burn a Disc Image “Save project to an ISO Image” rather than burning to disc.

And as Ken suggests, have you tried using the burner module within Video Studio, Share – Disc - DVD

Never mind. I have been using Roxio Creator to burn DVDs and it works fine. Thanks all.
