DVD Studio Pro Burn Failure

Nov 2, 2011

Hi All,

I hope someone can help me with a problem I have trying to burn a video project to DVD in DVD Studio Pro v4.

There should be seven videos (as tracks) and one menu on the disk.

When I simulate it, it's fine not giving me any hassles... But after I have burned it (successfully according to DVD Studio Pro which insists "FORMATTING SUCCESSFUL") and I re-insert the disk into my iMac, the pop-up screen for BLANK DISKS appear.

Normally when I do this the DVD player automatically starts and the FIRST PLAY track/menu fires up...

I'm sure it some stupid oversight on my part...

Can someone shed some light on this please? I'm about to scale the walls.
