Convertxtodvd, burning maybe good but finalization has failed

Hello everyone. I am having trouble with convertxtodvd. The conversion process is fine. My computer does not lock, during or after. After converting the burning process starts and is fine, when done the DVD draw opens as its set to do, but i don’t get the pop-up message saying it has completed. At the very bottom of the window it says: burning maybe good but finalization has failed

I’ve read other post about this but cant seem to resolve the problem. I want to post my log to see if anyone can help me.

Also I was using sony dvd+r and the problem didn’t happen from what i recall, this just started happening. The dvd+r that i am using now are maxell. I don’t know if that’s the problem with the finalization process, but im also thinking i should buy the sony dvd+r again.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Heres the log:

I will post any other info that needed. Thank again.

I would says its the source avi that is the problem when converting. Have you tried to play the avi source files to see if it play properly???

Yes, i have played the avi file. and it plays fine. It just doesn’t finalize at the end when using convertxtodvd. I also tried to uninstall and install convertxtodvd as well. And came up with the same results, problem with finalization.

Thanks.

Turn off burning in CXD and use ImgBurn (free) to burn to disc (in Build mode). This will help determine if it’s a CXD or system problem.

There are 2 areas of concern in your log.

2009-02-28 21:48:50 Info BURN:[B] PIO Mode[/B]

Something has happened that has kicked your drive out of DMA (UDMA) mode.

2009-02-28 21:48:50 Info BURN: Media ID: [B]CMC MAG-M01-00[/B]

Have you had success with these discs before? They can be problematic.

Thank you to everyone for replying and your input.
I just figured out the problem…
I didn’t have enough space on my drive!!

Simple-after breaking my head for about 2 days!!

So it was a system problem. After a disk clean and defrag, i burned using CXD again and it finalized and completed the burn.

Thanks again…

Well glad it seems to be working again, but I would check the next burn log just in case

These are troublesome entries:

Info BURN: Write finished in [B]01:07:03 [/B]- Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate [B]0.87[/B]

Info BURN: Writing speed requested [B]x4.0, effective x2.4[/B]
Info BURN: Available write speed: 8x, 4x, 2.4x,
Info BURN: Media ID: CMC MAG-M01-00

Info BURN: [B]PIO Mode[/B]

You asked for a write speed of 4X, but effective was 2.4X and in the final wash your Avg. burn rate was [B]0.87[/B]

I really do think its a Disc problem (maxell dvd+r) that i’m using cause it went back to not finalizing. I will post again when i buy new ones (sony dvd+r) never gave me this problem.

Now, i went under device manager and the transfer mode was PIO only, so i changed it to DMA if available but i cant seem to change the Current Transfer Mode, which is PIO Mode (I dont know if its suppose to stay in that mode).

-With the speed being 4x, should i set it to a lower writing speed, like 2x?

I will post my last log…

[QUOTE=a1j;2232257]I really do think its a Disc problem (maxell dvd+r) that i’m using cause it went back to not finalizing. I will post again when i buy new ones (sony dvd+r) never gave me this problem.

Now, i went under device manager and the transfer mode was PIO only, so i changed it to DMA if available but [B]i cant seem to change the Current Transfer Mode, which is PIO Mode [/B](I dont know if its suppose to stay in that mode).

-With the speed being 4x, should i set it to a lower writing speed, like 2x?

I will post my last log…[/QUOTE]
Some help here:

http://club.cdfreaks.com/f61/troubleshooting-enabling-checking-dma-windows-vista-xp-2000-me-9x-101616/

With the speed being 4x,

Don’t matter much what speed you choose, this is what you are getting:

[B]Avg. burn rate 0.87[/B]

Thanks.

Odd question to ask but it worked before why would it not work now? It’s made for windows so unless windows so corrupted maybe it won’t work properly or load correctly. But it does seem your version from the looks of it is a old version download the latest version not beta and give it a try again.
