DVDA Is Asking to Recompress My Audio
on Dec 10, 2014 at 12:59:48 am

Hello Everyone:

Would anyone know how to set up DVDA where it will not recompress audio? Does anyone know why it does this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Debbie

Debbie, did you render it using the AC-3 Pro template?

Hi Mike:

No. Vegas 12 doesn't give that option. It only has AC3. I rendered PCM instead and all uploaded well in DVDA. I prepared the file for burning, but now it's reading that my blank Blu ray -R is in read only status. How could that be, since it is a recordable?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Debbie

Do you NOT get this? - I do:-




If you render in PCM then DVDA will re-render to what it needs.

Understand that PCM is uncompressed which is the highest quality you can get. If DVD Architect is recompressing this to AC3 that's OK. It's no different than if you rendered it to AC3 from within Vegas Pro because it's starting from an uncompressed source.

I agree with the others that you should have the Dolby Digital AC-3 Pro encoder if you have DVD Architect Pro.

Hi John:

I think I see what they are all saying. I thought everyone was saying that I should have it in Vegas 12. Yes, I do believe I saw the AC3 encoder in DVDA. Question. In an earlier post you suggested I get IMGBurn for burning my Blu ray. I have run across another issue concerning my blu ray. My ASUS has a blu ray burner that I was going to use to burn my blu ray using DVDA. It turns out that now it's reading as a BD ROM and will not read my -R's as recordable, but read only instead. Do I need to buy an external burner or can I use IMG Burn? It's really hard to come out of pocket right now.

Many thanks,

Debbie

[Debbie King] " I thought everyone was saying that I should have it in Vegas 12."
Yes you should if you have Vegas Pro 12 and DVD Architect Pro. Are these the products you are working with? or do you have Movie Studio 12.0 and DVD Architect Studio? If you have the Pro versions you will have the AC3 Pro encoder. If you have the Sudio versions to will have the Studio encoder.
[Debbie King] "In an earlier post you suggested I get IMGBurn for burning my Blu ray. "
That might not have been me or it was a much older post. I did use ImgBurn at one time but the menus became too complex so I switched to BurnAware Free. The menus are much simpler to understand. Both do a great job but I find BurnAware easier to use.
[Debbie King] "My ASUS has a blu ray burner that I was going to use to burn my blu ray using DVDA. It turns out that now it's reading as a BD ROM and will not read my -R's as recordable, but read only instead. Do I need to buy an external burner or can I use IMG Burn?"
I would try to use BurnAware Free (or ImgBurn it doesn't matter) and if that program thinks that your Blu-ray is a BD-ROM then you might only have Blu-ray Player and NOT a Blu-ray Burner. In that case you will need to purchase a Blu-ray Burner to burn discs.

Give us the make and model number of your ASUS computer and we can look up what it has.

Thanks Everybody:

I have the ASUS Essential CM6870, which was suppose to come with a Blu ray burner. In fact when I clicked onto the BD Drive yesterday, and drop in a file, it asked whether I wanted to burn it. When I clicked yes, I received an error message that I needed to put in a writable disc.

Many thanks,

Debbie

[Debbie King] "I have the ASUS Essential CM6870, which was suppose to come with a Blu ray burner."
Actually, according to the specs from NewEgg that computer has a "12X Blu-Ray Combo Optical Drive" which doesn't specify if it's a Blu-ray burner or not. It is very common to have Blu-ray Readers on DVD Burners. The ASUS web site has even less information about it.

Have you ever burned a Blu-ray with it? What makes you think it has a Blu-ray burner?

I am trying everything suggested. John: Are you using these third party burning software in conjunction with DVDA?

Best,

Debbie

[Debbie King] "John: Are you using these third party burning software in conjunction with DVDA?"
Yes. I have a disc duplicator so I create an ISO file from DVD Architect and then I use that ISO file with my duplicating software to burn a batch of discs. I also archive that ISO on an external drive so if a client orders more discs all I need is the ISO file and I can burn more.

Thanks John:

I think I'm clear. Do you use an external blu ray drive or one is installed in your computer?

Many thanks,

Debbie

I have an internal Pioneer Blu-ray BD-RW BDR-207 that I use.

That's unfortunate but the term "Combo Drive" usually means it reads Blu-ray and read/writes DVD. Otherwise they just call them Blu-ray Burners. It's interesting that ASUS is telling you it's a burner but they can't make it work! If they can't make it work who can???

Having said that... I've had this happen to me once. I don't remember how I fixed it, it was a long time ago but I would delete the burner entry in Device Manager, reboot the computer, and have it discover the drive again. Perhaps ASUS has already asked you to do this.

Hi John:

No, they haven't instructed me to try this. I will try it. It's strange, because when I go into My Computer and click the ROM Drive with a Blu ray disc inserted, there is a tab above that asks me if I want to burn it. When I select it, it then asks me to insert a writable disc. In any case, I have to get a drive today so that I can stay on schedule.

Thank you so much for the suggestion.

Many thanks,

Debbie

Debbie, I just downloaded and read the PDF for your ASUS Essential CM6870: ASUS Essential CM6870

Read it and see if any reference to Blue Ray Burning? Please confirm that machine has the capacity to do so, otherwise we're all on a wild goose chase. However, there appears to be a bay for "another" drive.

Hi Grazie:

Thank you for sharing. I don't see anywhere on the manual where it mentions blu ray burning. On the other hand it is advertised as such and I have been on the live chat with ASUS for the past two days where they keep saying that it is suppose to burn; giving me troubleshooting tips. Their word against the manual that does not reflect this. How disheartening! Nevertheless I have resolved that I would get an external blu ray writer so that I could stay on schedule and deal with ASUS later on this issue. I have an extended warranty with them.

Thank you so much for this.

Best,

Debbie

Hi Grazie:

No, I don't have the AC3 Pro, and I don't understand it. My new issue is that my blu ray drive in my ASUS is not reading my blu ray disc as recordable. It's reading it as read only. Now I am forced to buy an external blu ray drive.

Many thanks,

Debbie

There is something more fundamental going on. JR's comments in that you really need to establish just WHAT that device is exactly. And, you really should have AC3 in your VP12. Would a non-burner effect the installation of the AC3?

Hi Grazie:

It is strange, but I do remember clicking Vegas 12 Update a few months ago. Something else changed after I clicked updates. My Color Match plugin is different now. I use to just select what clip I want to have matched, then it gives you an option for you to select the clip you want to match it to. Now, I have to use my mouse and highlight an area on the clip that I want to match it to. If I touch something blue, it will change to blue. This is so frustrating because I can't gauge the accuracy. I may uninstall and reinstall just to get my original settings back. BUT! Not until I finish this monstrosity of a project. I need a break!

Many thanks,

Debbie

Hi Debbie,
thought I would step back in again :-)

The Blu-ray disk on your pc is either a BD-ROM or a BD-RE, either it is a Blu-ray reader or burner. A lot of PC's have a Blu-ray reader and a DVD Burner in one unit. What is important is that if it shows as type BD-ROM it will never burn a Blu-ray disk - no matter what software you use. It is the type of device that matters.

If you post a description of the device properties people can find out for you.

If you only have a BD-ROM then you will have to purchase an external Blu-ray Burner.
