David FishDVD SP error message

I am receiving an "unkown file type" error message when I attempt to import a .m2v file into DVD SP. I used QT to encode, as always. It is the first time using OSX 10.2 & QT 6 PRO w/ DVD SP. If I import a .m2v file from an older, OSX 2.1/QTPro 5 project, I have no problems. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Interesting- where did the original file come from? A DV clip?

The original file was a sequence of picts in Final Cut Pro. Also tried a straight DV clip from an older project & got the same error message. No idea what's up, only that I did not have this probelm with DVDSP prior to upgrading to Jaguar. Whether that has anything to do with this I dont know??? Thanks again.

Apparently the latest version of Quicktime breaks DVDSP... There will hopefully be an update from apple in the next few days.

You should try restarting in OS 9 and see if the clip presents the same issue.

Noah, belive it or not I found the answer on Apple's DVDSP support site. It seems that DVDSP sometimes has trouble importing from a Firewire drive, I moved the .m2v file to an internal HD, and everything worked fine. Thanks for your help.

Hmm interesting- I don't have that problem in 1.2. You would think Apple would make every effort to support Firewire as it is the cornerstone of FCP.
