I have Vegas Pro 15, Vegas DVD Architect. I am trying to burn a movie to a blank disc. My movie has a menu, scene selections, the whole thing. It's an hour and forty minutes long. Every time I try to burn my movie, the burn will start. I will get a "making disc" bar which will load to 66%.There is also a Burning lead-in box which never progresses at all. It's just blank with the words "Burning lead-in.". Then, after a few minutes my disc is ejected and a message appears on the screen. "The drive couldn't determine the correct power for writing this disc. To fix this you need to use a different writing speed, or different brand of media." Now, I've tried writing the disc with both 4x and 8x speed - the only two speeds available. It never works. I've looked all over for an answer to this particular error, but I get nothing. Does anyone know what's going on? I've burned CD's before with this same computer. I know CD's and DVD's are different. I'm using a Dell, i7 core, 64 bit. I have a DVD port built into the laptop. I have used this drive to burn videos onto discs - 1/2hr long videos - and also to burn CD's. However, I've never used DVD Architect before now, this is my first project with the program.
Thank you for your help.
