Considering upgrade to Maverick from ML. Anyone have any experience with Burn running on Maverick? Important to me, because I use Burn almost exclusively now, having dumped Titanium after version 10. Thanks in advance.

Well looked at the Soundforge site for Burn and the forums. A number of reported issues with Maverick, primarily instability. Developer appears to have gone silent. What to do, what to do... I would pay good money for a simple, feature rich, RELIABLE burning software on OS X. I am so put off by Titanium for the last several years now. SimplyBurns appears to be abandoned.

I've noticed myself recently opening up Windows in Parallels and using Nero Burn, just because it can do everything and do it more reliably and faster than anything I have on OS X, even running in a Virtual Machine. Has it come to that?

Thanks Bdkennedy1! Just found out Mavericks has a bug with Firewire devices (Firewire drives remain on and spinning even if the Mac goes to sleep) so looks like I'm on ML for a little while longer. I think I'm going to set up an older Mac that still has Snow Leopard running Titanium version 10 and use it for burning, and dual boot that older Mac into Windows and run Nero if I have to.

I don't want Titanium 11 anywhere near my primary Mac

I used this due to needing to overburn past limitations in Roxio Toast by mere seconds. It burnt fine, but there was an issue with writing CD text. Not only did it write the title of the CD to track 5, then the first tracks text to track 6, but it seemed to have CD2 in the compilations tracks locked into it's cache (I'm guessing) and write those titles with the above issues. Very strange! I'm using an early 2011 macbook pro running Snow Leopard, burning to TDK CDRs and then playing on a Pioneer CD player that displays CD text. Any help on this bizzarre behaviour appreciated!

Worked like a charm on my Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 to burn my Adobe Premiere Elements project on a playable DVD. Added the OpenDVD and VIDEO_TS folders to the Burn Data window, entered a DVD label, hit BURN and voilà. Thanks.

I hope this fine app hasn’t become abandonware — it’s been a year and a half since it was last updated, but FFmpeg has come a long way in that time and it would sure be nice to have those improvements working for Burn users.

I'm really chuffed with this software. I needed to burn a DVD from QuickTime format. Most of my searches pointed to paid software or iDVD which is no longer bundled with Macs.

I need to not only burn the movie to DVD but also to have it loop. I found the loop option in preferences. It all went flawlessly. Good interface plus helpful how-to on developers site made the task a doodle. Thanks very much.

A very satisfying piece of software for burning cd's, dvd's (dual and single layer), etc. Easy to label disc, pull data to it, and then create a reliable burn. And moreover it's free.

I was a Toast user for many years. Finally realized that all Roxio did was re-skin the software every year. Yes, Burn won't have all of the other add-on lite versions of stuff you may not want, but it does one thing very well, and does it with grace.

Great job.

When I try to convert video files to MPG for a DVD, Burn 2.5 consistently throws an unknown error at me. Time to dig into Time machine for the previous version. It never gave me any trouble. (Early 2006 iMac running Snow Leopard)

Burn was working great until the other day. I was converting videos and all of a sudden it no longer can convert the videos and reports an unknown error.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

When I drag previously converted videos from burn into Toast 6 I get a Mac OS Error -50 but none of the forums online explain video conversion as the cause for this error and I am not sure if it's related.

Again, RiDATA DVD+R DL troubles. This time Burn 2.3u, but thankfully it ejected the DVD rather than going in infinite loop.

DRErrorStatusErrorKey = -2147352542;
DRErrorStatusErrorStringKey = "The device failed to respond properly, unable to recover or retry.";

Have you ever been able to Burn these Ridata discs with another Burning Program? Perhaps it is not the Burn program but the inability of your hardware to burn Ridata discs.

I had a similar problem with Verbatim CD's. It would hang at the closing session stage. It made no difference what the burning program I used. I had to switch to a different Brand CD. Now I can burn without any problems.

Coincidentally, I verified that the batch of DVD+R DL's from RiDATA were without error or issue with the inner workings of OSX just tonight by using Apple's Disk Utility application. It handled the burn fine and reported back zero errors. The content was the exact same as what I wanted Burn 2.3u to handle. Very odd.

Burn handles my other standard DVD's just fine, so I guess that I'll just go to the Disk Utility in the future if I want to burn a DL. Too bad it cost me 2 DVD+R DL's to find out the proper course of action...

Encountered major error when burning RiDATA DVD+R DL. Application hung indefinitely in "closing session" phase before verification could begin. Allowed copious amounts of time to see if app would fix itself. It didn't. Quit yielded no results; force quit disappeared UI but app hung in dock. DVD would not mount on desktop nor eject by any means. Force rebooted, but DVD still in burn mode would not allow the computer to reboot. Cut power, rebooted. DVD would not mount nor eject. Rebooted again, this time holding eject button at chime. Worked. Following link has screen cap of error report: http://tinyurl.com/qu4ssc

I'm having trouble burning DVD-videos on DL-discs. They don't work, partly or not at all, but the good ol' 4.7GB ones work fine. Sometimes it just starts preparing, then finishes without actually writing the main stuff; ruining the not so cheap disc in the process! Should this be expected, or am I just to doped up in the head when using this otherwise so smooth working combination of fine technology? I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.6 on a Mac mini with the PIONEER DVD-RW DVRTS08. Thank you/*

I'm having some trouble with this latest version. Burned DVD video discs won't play on my PS3 (that's currently the only stand-alone player I have, but I'm assuming the issue isn't exclusive to the PS3). Also, the menus that Brun creates when authoring discs support chapter selection, but there doesn't seem to be a way to get it to create chapters. It also doesn't carry over the chapters from files it converts. Am I missing something here? I'd appreciate any advice or info anyone could offer on these topics.

Did you try DVD Player on your Mac to see if it's the PS3?

robotank commented on 06 Apr 2009
I tried two different discs on the PS3 and my Mac, both created from the same MP4 file converted by Burn. One of them worked in the Mac and not the PS3, and the other didn't work in either one. For both of these discs I had used one of Burn's DVD Themes. Finally, I used Burn to convert the same file and burn a disc without a theme, and it worked properly in both the Mac and the PS3. The obvious conclusion is that Burn's DVD Themes create incompatibility with some devices. I have no idea one of the themed discs worked on the Mac and the other didn't, but there's definitely a problem with this feature, which is unfortunate, because it would be quite useful if it worked properly. Hopefully, this will be addressed in a future update. I'd love to have an alternative to Toast to create menus on DVDs.
