Dvd burner problem

#1

hi all,

My dvd burner TDK dvdrw0404n usb device (portable dvd burner) was working fine until last night. All of a sudden, now I can’t get my DVD burner to recognize my blank dvd’s. It says in “my computer” that my DVD burner is a cd burner. when no dvd is in the burner it shows the DVD icon. when I put in A DVD, it shows the icon as a cd, when clearly it is a dvd! it won’t work in my sonic reel dvd software at all and gives me an error when I try to burn a dvd. what is up here? BTW, the burner works fine in my other computer, and I just burned some files to it on there, no problem, so I assume this has something to do with my computer here. I NEED it on this one though, as this is where I have all my editing work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 3MAN

here is some specs for my computer

Have you tried completely removing the USB device in device manager, and then rebooting and let windows autodetect the device.


#3

yes… it does not work. I disabled the burner in the device manager, rebooted, and let it autodetect. Nothing. Funny thing is, I just popped in a DVD movie and watched it no problem. But I put in a blank DVD, the icon shows up as CD drive :F and when I click on it I get… F:/ is not accesible. incorrect funtion.


#4

That’s exactly what’s supposed to happen. By “supposed to” I really mean that’s just the way it does happen whether that was by design or accident.

Windows doesn’t support blank DVD media without specific burning software.


#5

Ok, I know that happens…Ok, let me rephrase the problem, I don’t think I’m approaching it right. When I go to burn a DVD in Sonic reel DVD LE 3.1, I get this error:

error MuxfromDB:MuxVST failed
error multiplex failed
error DVD video files could not be created.

I never had a problem with this program working before, now I just decides to give me these errors.

Also, why does the blank DVD turn the drive icon to a CD drive when I put in a blank DVD?


#6

Muxing failed so it cannot ever be burned.


#7

Well what does that mean?


#8

MUXing? He3ar is a more detailed log of my problem…

Does this muxing thing mean all my projects are screwed? Can I ever use this program again or should I just get a new one?

Some authoring apps will just report that the bitrate is higher than the standard and allow you to continue but clearly others will not continue the process.

I use DVDLab Pro from MediaChance and I don’t think it has such a problem. It has a 30day full trial. Might be worth a look.
