I have a DVD Studio Pro file that used to burn without a problem, but now it won't at all. I found all of the files necessary, but when I click the burn button, I get a warning:

The Build Location folder contains a VIDEO_TS folder(standard DVD content).  You must remove the VIDEO_TS folder from the Build Location in order to proceed with Build/Format of a HD DVD project.


I wouldn't know where to find this Build folder anyway. I am not sure what to do at this point.

Can anyone shed some light?

I have a 2010 2.66 GHz Macbook Pro Core i7

    When you burn, the settings allow you to specify where the VIDEO_TS folder is writtien to.  You have one there that must be removed.  Look at the setting in DVDSP to find out where it is.

    Are you trying to build an HD DVD rather than a standard defintion DVD? I've never tried to build an HD DVD... does that format also use the VIDEO_TS structure?


    A simple alternative to finding and removing the troublesome VIDEO_TS folder is to select a new location for the build -- an empty folder on your desktop, in your documents folder, wherever.


    Or, if the contents and/or design of the disc hasn't changed since the last time you built it, find the current VIDEO_TS folder and use that to burn your disc rather than building it anew.

    HD DVD is a dead format, as Blu Ray has become the high def optical media standard.

    Blu Ray is extrememly expensive to commercially duplicate/replicate, also.
