Question about Apple DVD Studio Pro 4 for Mac

1 Answer

Burned DVD will not play

DVDs burned with Studio Pro will play on the MacPro that they were burned on, but no other computer even recognizes the disk.

    It seems that the problem is because the file was exported in 1080i60 and though StudioPro was set to SD, it burned the DVD in HD, which was not recognized by other computers.

    I still have not found the correct Final Cut setting for exporting this HD project in SD, so that the image does not appear squished.

    Any advice?

Try burning it with another burning software like Nero, sometimes studio pro burns in an extention assigned to this particular macpro, try other type of DVD discs too, it will work eventually

My Dell 1737 DVD/CD drive won't recognize DVDs or burn DVDs but will play select CDs fine. Solutions? Thanks, Jeff

Hi, pretty much the codec is not installed on the computer and I think that's the reason why the system can't read DVD. Try to download the right codec for your PC.

You could try VLC player. Here's the link:

Or you can also try installing a codec. Here's the link:

I burned a dvd in Pinnacle Studio Plus 11. I know stuff burned to the DVD, but it won't play on the computer or in the DVD player. Does Pinnacle not finalize the DVD, could that be why it's not playing? ...

Be sure to check if there is a file written on the DVD disk. Try to install a player like VLC and see if the .VOB file is playing.If not the DVD is not burned properly then try to recheck your settings on the Studio 11 Make Movie

When using CDBurnerXp burning DVD video's from ISO files, the resulting DVD often does not play properly on a DVD player. Sometimes the sound breaks up, sometimes the picture pixelizes like interference,...

I haven't used that particular program, but I've made hundreds of DVDs. The first rule is to use good brand name media, I recommend Verbatim. Pixelation is a sign of poor quality media quality.
Give it a try with Verbatim disks.

DVD studio pro 4.1.2 - problem menu appearance I am working on DVD studio pro 4.1.2 on mac... All media files and project files are on external hard drive. I created my own project with new manes designs. It was working fine so far, and the problem now is lke this (sorry i don't explain it in the most professional terms): can't open my last updated project... the software is working but nothing is coming up. So i opened an older version... and it came up... but IT DOES NOT SHOW ME ANYTHING ON THE MENUS THAT WERE DESIGNED, NO PICTURES NO BUTTONS (HOW DO YOU CALL THEM? TEMPLETS? STYLS? ) anyways, so i only see a grey menu, but i can see that pictures and audio and video files are linked to it in the side bars.... even the text... all .... BUT, IT IS NOT APPEARING IN THE MENU VIEW! threw opening an old project i could open the recent one... but it is the same there... no visual view of the menus i worked on... although i see they are connected, and i can also do simulated preview, and the sound works, but black screen. then i can click "in the dark" there to change from menus (at the simulation) and it takes me to the videos that are attached, and they work... But where is all the visual menu??? So, i have no idea what i did wrong on the way... the last time i worked on it, the project was finished, and i tried to do "build and formate" ... but it did not finish because of a "high bit rate" error, of one of the video files... so the process was not done... now what? with appreciation!
