    Hi,

    I'm using Toast Titanium 8 to burn some AVIs to DVD Video. I have burned about 10 discs like this without a problem in the past few days. However on this recent batch of AVIs I keep receiving a message saying 'Could not record the disc because of a Mac OS error' Result Code = 1852402768

    I first tried 3 - 350mb AVIs and the error appeared at 33% of Encoding process. So, I thought maybe there was an error with just one of those AVIs, so I tried the next 3 in the batch to see if they would work. Once again the error appeared at 33% in the encoding process.

    Could these files perhaps be coded with something or other that won't allow them to be burned? Does anyone have any other ideas as to what the problem may be? Any and all solutions are welcome!

    Oh yeah, here is the Info on the files I'm trying to burn to DVD Video.

    Video: DivX 6.0 512x384, 25fps
    Audio: MPEG Layer 3 Audio, Stereo, 48000Hz

    The other AVIs I successfully burned to Video were the same info, except for 29.97fps rather than 25...but I don't see how that makes any difference...

    Thanks for any help. If you anyone would like more info to assess the problem I'd be more than happy to provide it.

    You are doing a lot of transcoding. You may be exceeding the 4.7 GB limit of burnable DVDs. Converting from 25 fps to 29.97 fps will add to your file size. If you are burning DVDs intended to be used in any player, then you are burning in MPEG-2 format. MPEG-2 has much less compression than DivX. This means that your files will be substantially larger on DVD than as DivX files. Long story short, you are most likely running out of space.

    Ok,

    That makes sense. I'll try with 2 files rather than 3 and see if that works. It's just odd because I was transcoding 2 - 700mb files to play on one DVD5 and it worked. So, I'm not sure why 3 - 350mb files wouldn't work?

    I'll report back with results.

    Thanks.

    With 2 files I have passed the 33% mark that I previously could not during encoding...so, it's looking promising so far. I just wonder why Toast would indicate there is enough room, usually if there isn't the burn icon goes orange or red rather than green.

    Hmm

    I think that poster is right with the size going to large.

    I was having a problem converting a previous pal dvd to avi and then back to dvd. It wouldnt play on hardly any of my dvd players. Im still trying to fix that.
