Illegal Disc Error in Nero, video encoded by Adobe Premiere

vbimport

#1

Hello all,

Newbie looking for some answers! I’ve looked around these forums and have found a couple of things to try but none seem to work for me.

I’m running Windows 2000 and I have an NEC ND-1300A. I recently bought Adobe Premiere Elements to edit my home videos. Unfortunately, Premiere only runs on Windows XP, so I did my editing on my XP computer then copied the VIDEO_TS files over to my Win2K machine to burn to DVD. (I hope that part makes sense.)

I’m getting an “Illegal Disc” error in Nero when I try to burn the DVD. I’ve successfully burned many DVDs using this drive and this media, but so far I’ve only gotten a couple of coasters out of this attempt. I seem to have the latest NEC firmware for my drive already.

Here’s my log file:

I need more information. What exact steps did you take, starting with the video capture, up through attempting the burn.


#3

Okay…

  1. Multiple video clips ripped from camcorder’s Mini-DV tape to .avi files
  2. Video clips edited together (plus menus, etc.) in Adobe Premiere Elements on XP machine.
  3. In Premiere, used “Burn to Folder” option, which created OpenDVD and VIDEO_TS directories.
  4. Copied these directories from the XP machine onto the Win2K machine
  5. Opened Nero SmartStart on the Win2K machine and select Burn a DVD/Video
  6. In Nero Express, added all files from the VIDEO_TS folder created by Premiere into the VIDEO_TS folder in Express
  7. Clicked the Burn button to begin the DVD Burn

I’ve successfully ripped video from the camcorder and burned it to DVD using another editor (can’t remember which one at the moment) and it worked fine. So the only real ‘new’ step for me is the Adobe Premiere ‘Burn To Folder.’ Premiere didn’t report any errors so I assumed that that part worked correctly…

Does that give you the information you need?

I’ve never used premiere elements, but from everything you showed, you should have got a good burn. Try using DVDCRYPTER (Free download) to burn to VideoTS file to a dvd and see if that works. I’ve tried burning with nero a few times, and had hit and miss success. I’ve never had a failed burn with dvdcrypter.

Thanks for the tip, Rob. I’ll try DVDCrypter when I get home and let you know how it goes.


#6

Back with a report. Before I tried DVD Decrypter, I tried burning with Nero at 2x, instead of the default 4x. I also checked the box about ‘Determine Maximum Speed’ (although I doubt that that particular change made any difference).

Lo and behold… a successful burn! I’m two for two at 2x, so I think I’ll continue with that.

I did download DVD Decrypter, but I realized that I’d have to run my files (.BUP, .IFO, .VOB) through DVD Shrink first before Decrypter could burn them. Since Nero was working, I didn’t feel like messing with it. Maybe next project.

Thanks for your help!


#7

If it’s working at 2x and not at 4x, you might want to try some better media next time. My ritek g03’s and g04’s both burn at over the rated speed without any problems. But check the forum to see what media people with your particular drive are having good success with.
