I have made several tests just to see if I can change the problem. I tried 2-Pass VBR, changed normal priority to high, and I took out the soundtrack for the menu. Each time I get the exact same error.
The Nero window that pops up at the end is:
Burn process failed!
An error log file was created ...
From the windows I can tell I am writing to the hard disk because the selection says current destination with name of the folder. When I change to burn to disk, the button becomes "Burn" instead of "Write" and it says burn to device.
I was wondering it almost seems that I am running out of some resource. My video file is about 12GB and I have about 70GB of free disk space when I start transcoding. Is this enough? Would Nero tell me if I ran out of memory?
Is it possible that something is wrong with my captured video for that section despite the fact that I can play it back with Nero's remote controller?
It seems that I must be doing something wrong because this is such a basic operation, but I just don't see it!
