Ok so i am trying to burn a movie i made onto dvd. And i have the dvd set up the way i want it, and i click burn. It goes through all the rendering and processing steps, but when it gets to multiplexing and burning the disc ejects early and it wont finish burning. I have tried about 3 times and it happens every time. Anyone have any thoughts?

Do you get an error message. I have seen that, when the you have more than two hours of video.

Hi iapple,

It could be that the DVD you are trying to burn on is too low in capacity for the movie your trying to burn onto.

Thanks for your responses but its not either of those. The movie is only 20 minutes long, and the dvd i am trying to use has 4gb's of capacity. So im pretty much stuck on what to do. Maybe i will go try and buy different dvd+r's

I use "Save as Disc Image..." instead of "Burn DVD..." because this isolates issues with the actual burning process and coaster discs. After the image is created, I use Toast to burn the DVD, but I believe Disk Utility can do that too.

The same thing happened to me using 2 different brands of DVD-R's, but I read on another forum to use Sony DVD-R and my DVD burned first time!
