Can't Build DVD using Disc Image in Encore CS3
on Aug 14, 2008 at 3:42:29 pm

Hi, I am using Adobe Encore CS3 and am trying to build a dvd using a "Disc Image" that was created on a previous version of Encore. It works fine on the old version, but when I attempt to build a dvd using the disc image in CS3, the "Build" Key isn't highlighted (in the "Build Window" and can't be clicked. I do a "check project" for errors and get two errors: First play not set & Title remote not set. This makes no sense since the disc image contains all that info and should just build with no problems. Can anyone advise on this issue? Thanks in advance, Donovan

If you've already created the disk image, you shouldn't need to use Encore to do the burn.

Try burning the disk image using whatever disk burning utility you normally use, probably Nero, or Roxio.

Hope this helps.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I normally used the older version of Encore to burn dvds using a disc image. I don't have another program to burn dvds. Seems strange that the old version could do this simple task and CS3 can't. Must be a way to simply burn a dvd using disc image in Encore CS3. That option comes up in the build window, just won't let me click "build". Thanks again.

Have you selected the image file in the Build panel?

Yes, I select create using "Disc Image", then browse for the image file (which worked on the old Encore 1.5). I have a new computer and wanted to use the CS3 Production suite. I suppose I could install the old version, but this is a strange issue to have. Here's a link to see a screen cap http://www.onlinefilefolder.com/index.php?action=getshare&type=0&user_num=6...
Thank you, Donovan

2 things to check:

1. Is the file that you selected a valid disc image?

2. Do you have any blank media inserted in the burner?

Obvious, I know, but it's odd that the disc size indicator is showing 0 bytes for the size of the disc.

Ah, good questions. I do know that the image file works because I just tested it on my old laptop, with encore 1.5.

Then I thought you might be on to something, but the zero bytes refers to those used. I do have a Disc in there and the screen cap says 4.7 GB Free...unless I'm reading it wrong. But there's only one DVD burner and a blank disk is in there.

I am stumped. Thanks for the ideas though.

What is the file extension on the image file? If it's .img, change it to .iso. If it's .iso, then change it .img. See if that helps.

Otherwise, download the free image burning program called ImgBurn. It's a great little utility that can burn almost any image at all. If ImgBurn won't burn your image, then I would suspect something very wrong on your current system.

I'll bet it is the image file extension, and was just going to suggest checking that.

Encore CS3 expects the extension to be .iso (you can change this in Explorer and it should work correctly).

Well, I couldn't resist and tried the .iso extension with no luck. I can use my old version on my old computer. Strange problem though, thanks again.

Ugh.

Try ImgBurn (free), then. That should be able to burn the image, no problem.

Ugh is right. I downloaded ImgBurn and it worked. I wonder why such a basic feature (to build from an image file: img or iso) would be removed from Encore from 1.5 to CS3.

With all due respect, Donovan, it hasn't. It works just fine here. We've been trying to help you get it to work on *your* system and with *your* file.
