    I'm having serious issues with burning DVDs, and I don't have that many discs to keep wasting.

    I've downloaded an .avi movie from Torrent.
    Used Visual Hub to create a disc image in order to acquire a Video_TS folder.
    Saved the Video_TS to my desktop and unmounted the disc.

    Opened Toast 7:
    Tab= DVD-Video from Video_TS
    I chose the Video_TS file and clicked burn at x4.
    And I get this message halfway through:

    The drive reported an error:
    Sense Key= HARDWARE ERROR
    Sense Code = 0x44
    Internal Target Failure.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Or another method.

    Have you tried using iDVD?

    I few weeks ago I was able to make a DVD from a torrented avi file. Pretty painless. I just started up a new project, drag and dropped the avi in there, fooled around with some settings so it can play on startup instead of going to the menu.

    It encoded and burned the video. Popped it in to my DVD player and it worked like a charm.

    So i tried that and it still didn't work.
    I read online that it may have something to do with an admin account so i made a new user and it still failed.
    It isn't a hardware issue because I burn CDs just fine.
    It's when it reaches the multiplexing stage that it pops up an error.
    Ugh. -_-

    Once you have an ISO file, double click it to mount on your desktop.

    Open disc utility.

    On the left side of your window, you will see your hardrive(s) and, below them, your mounted iso file.

    Select the upper of the two icons and choose burn in your toolbar.

    Follow prompts and you should be good to go.

    cheers, Chuck

    You should also open DVD player once the image is mounted and watch your movie before you burn.

    At least this way you can determine if the ISO file is good before wasting a DVD.

    Good luck.

    cheers, Chuck
