Try burning an iso image file instead from the program, then you can use the built in mac software to burn that disk image file to a disc. Sometimes in video editing there is a problem with the process of compiling the video to a disk. Try a simple very short project with a dvd-rw (reusable) disc to see if it still gives the error.

Does not finalize


You may not have the setting finalze after burning, this allows to to add more data to the spare space on the disc.
You can finalize at any time or change the setting to finalize after burning the data to the disc.

I have an HP Pavilion mx704 desktop PC 2005 model, and I can not burn music onto a CD. This computer has a CD burner, and when I start burn of the downloaded song, it says insert disk, I put a blank CD-R...


What OS and burn software are you using? Can you see the music files when you look at the file explorer on the computer (My Computer or Computer in Windows and double click on the optical drive)? Check if the disc has any scratches.

If you see the music listed on the optical disc, check if the disc was finalized. (Again in Windows Computer, right click on the optical drive and it should be an option if the disc hasn't been finalized.)

If there are no files on the CD-R, make certain that the disc isn't being formatted before you try the burn. (Formatting should only be done on R/W discs.)

If the music files are on the optical disc and the disc was finalized, your CD player is not tracking across the disc properly. Try a lens cleaner. It may need repair and I've never successfully repaired a CD drive (the only ones I've had fail were in computers and were cheaper to replace). The mirror and the belt are the most likely places to have issues.

I hope this helps.

Error message can't record on disc


Hi,
I would try to burn at a lower speed. If this doesn't work. Try to burn the cd but don't finalize it. If this goes through fine then try to finalize the cd.

Burn dvd from vhs


i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

You need to "Finalize" the disc, or it will not play on any other dvd player other than your LG. Finalizing the disc permanently commits any data onto the disc, no more writing or editing can be done.

Can not finalize disk (cd or dvd)


I just burned 6 movies, I noticed that when it goes to finalize, it ejects before finalization is complete. I use FAB Platinum 4.1. I'm going to go into the settings and use Nero burning rom before I remove my Sony and put in my other burner (Plextor) better then Sony I think. I used Nero before and it helped, maybe it will help this time. Why 3 movies did not play, and the others did is beyond me. Dan J

LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted


What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.
