An error occurred preparing the disc + failed to connect ipc
on Mar 14, 2015 at 12:09:15 am

I was attempting to render and burn a blu ray.

Now, I have previously successfully rendered and burned a 2 hour blu ray but this time when I tried to do it, the first attempt I got:


error preparing image
failed to connect ipc port
system can't find the file specified

I'm guessing that I lost the connection w the usb port?

I know sometimes the connection gets lost i.e. if I look in DEVICE MANAGER I will see the yellow, yield or caution icon indicating the port is not functional.

I reboot and the port functions again.

I didn't think to look in device manager but I am guessing that the error means for some reason the usb port stopped functioning?


SO I attempted a second render after shutting off all background processes via msconfig and disabled all start up items and rebooted which possibly reset the usb port - if indeed that was the cause of the first error.

Second attempt I made it appeared that I made it all the way through the render, as far as I can tell, of the 2 hour project but got the error mssg:

an error occurred preparing the disc.


I had the same un-rewritable disc in the blu ray burner both times.

I thought being as the render failed at that 28% complete point the first attempt that I could still use the same disc for the second attempt.

When going through the, "MAKE MOVIE" steps I select;


render image and burn
1920 x 1080 10mbps (the frame size showing of the footage I shot)
File path c drive (where ms 13 project is, my clips are on d drive)

Any ideas why I got the error messages?

Maybe the disc somehow got written on during the first render/burn attempt? It never made it all the way through render so I figured it was still empty.

Under properties, it shows as 100% of the space is free.

I tried attaching a screen shot in of the make movie selections using word but it said file type not supported.

Correction, the frame size of the video is 1440 x 1080 and the pictures in project are 1920 x 1080

The first attempt at render/burn I selected 1920 x 1080 and the second tome
I selected 1440 x 1080.

Maybe having selected 1920 by 1080 caused the first failed attempt?
