When the coding is done I get this window.

It stops at 13 seconds and I can't get past it other than click it away.

My settings are like this.

So what am I doing wrong?

I'm not sure it will help in your case, but try unchecking the first option, Burn result to disc. That way, I would think you wouldn't be prompted every time to burn a disc. But, is that what you want? No prompt to burn the output to disc?


I don't. I write the output to VIDEO_TS and then create my own ISO with ImgBurn for burning to disc myself. But, that may not be what you want.

I have always burned an ISO to hard drive, been using VSO for a long time now. I mount the ISO and check that everything is OK. Then I burn it to disc with CloneDVD2. So it's about the same workflow as you have with the difference of intermediate storage.

The result has always been like the first window (with a grace time of circa 15 seconds). Now it stops at 13 seconds and repeatedly ask me to insert a disc.

Your suggestion goes against my intuition and also against the settings I used at my old computer. Nevertheless, I will try it to see what happens.

The result was that it wrote the DVD folders with the VOB files to the hard drive, so I'm afraid it didn't do the trick but it was well worth a try.

I'm afraid with issues like this, where a feature/function worked fine and then stopped behaving normally, they may only be fixed by an uninstall and reinstall of the software. If that doesn't work and you uninstalled but kept the user defined settings, try repeating the process but doing a complete clean uninstall and reinstall by not keeping the user defined settings. You will have to re-enter them, of course, but it may be the only way to fix it.

I tried this, first with keeping the user settings, then not keeping them. I'm afraid none of it worked.

Guess I have to wait for the next update and hope for it to disappear by itself. :cry:

This is one of the reasons why I invested in disk imaging software, external hardware storage, and do daily backups of Windows. For cases like this, when mystery failures pop up, I just restore back to a point where it last worked.

That is the best option. I have been doing it for years. I keep 4 backups. 1 on an internal HDD and 3 on external HDD.
I find that Acronis does a very good job.

Aren't we getting a bit off-topic here? I haven't used ConvertXtoDVD for six month, and the solution should be to go back to a half-year-old backup of windows? And what would happen to the non-ConvertXtoDVD changes I have made during this time?

It's not that off topic as I've found it's generally the only solution for problems like this. Windows constantly "breaks" itself and you never know when it might do it until you come across that it has.


Well, there is the nuclear option: reinstalling Windows.
