All those warnings are nothing more than telling you all those files on your desktop or wherever your QT movie is residing will not be included in the burn. Just ignore it.

It also maybe that your external burner is indeed not supported. Have you ever successfully burned a DVD using it?

Hi Mike,

When I press burn in DVDSP, it start compiling and that is done successfully, but when the burning process start I keep getting Formatting... the device is not supported for the requested burn operation and can´t do nathig else, I have to stop the process to get back to the project.

Hi to all, this is how this story ended.
Even though the external burn device is a multi format burner, that I bought here in Germany, I thought it might have or required some obscure pal European settings that I ignored, I checked and rechecked all the settings in FCP and DVDSP and the burner, to export the uncompressed mov, frames 25, pal, quality best, bitrates 4 to 7 variable and I tried with constant bitrates, tried everything from top, automatic and bottom field order, tried all options of encode mode, one pass, one pass VBR, and double pass VBR, in each trial everything matched, between the file exported from FCP and the settings in DVDSP, the encoded project had also the proper size to fit on the disk, but it didn?t work. I also tried it by making mpg2 file generated in compressor, but I kept getting the same notice in DVDSP. So then next step was check the burner, it is an external device, (since my PowerBook is already 3.5 years old and that aluminium series didn?t include an internal burner, so my only option for burning is an external burner?) I tried with DVD+R, then with DVD-R, brand1, brand 2, and brand 3, single layer, double layer. Nope!!!! Next I checked if the device was working properly. I started a project in toast and burned the movs there, the dvd came out just fine. Ok. Next possible solution was give up burning from DVDSP, that meant only build project in DVDSP and burn the _TS files in toast. The outcome of that attempt: the menus didn?t work properly even though they worked perfectly in the DVDSP simulator. Then I tried by making a disk image, an .img file, and tried to burn that from toast, but it didn?t work. So 7 hours to dead line, stucked in a German PC world, I took the .img and burned it in Nero. It worked!!! I?m not totally happy with the result, because Nero doesn?t have a real good encoding quality, but at least had the DVD. I?ve come to the conclusion that DVDSP 3 doesn?t burn on external device. Or maybe my DVDSP isn?t working properly. During this entire quest for salvation I found out that other users had encountered the same problem as I did when trying to burn their DVDSP projects on external devices. So if there is still hope to be able to burn from DVDSP using a external burner please let me know, because I don?t want to give up DVDSP, and at the moment I can?t afford another mac with internal burner.
