Greetings: After taking a 2H video clip of a funeral on a Sony DI8. I use Media Studio pro 7 to capture & render to a 86 minute AVI file (18GB) without any special effects (just have an indroduction in text format) and compress it to mpeg2 (~1.5GB) file. I follow the "How to author a DVD using TMPEGEnc DVD Author" guide http://www.videohelp.com/guides.php?guideid=455#455 and many time I want to burn the mpeg2 file to a DVD+R using Tmpgenc DVD Author 1.6. Everything went smootly (just follow the instruction and use default settings) until I hit the "Begin Output"; the program creates empty folders "Volume1" with 2 sub-directories Audio_TS & Video_TS and exits itself automatically. Am I missing something? Any suggestion and help is greatly appreciated.
