DVD SP3 Audio File Problems

I've been using a.pack to convert all of my audio to AC3 in order to save space and make more compatible DVDs for various palyers. All has been going well until I decided to put a short intro movie in a blank menu set to First Play,then it would target the Main Menu.

I made my m2v and AC3 files but when I started the Build/Format, I got an error message saying all audio had to be the same format, which it was. All audio used in the project was AC3.

After trying a few adjustments and re-encodes of my intro movie to no avail, I decided to just use an aiff like I used to do. It worked even though at this point I no longer had all the same type of audio files.

This defeats the purpose of using the AC3 files to get better set top compatibility when I have AC3 files and one mpg audio file for the intro.

Anyone know why I would have gotten the error message?

It sounds like this message is not complaining of using different
file TYPES or encoding formats, but SAMPLE formats, like:

- sample rate, 44.1 or 48 KHz etc.

- bits: 12 or 16 bits

Rob,

I figured it out. I was using a .mov file for the menu background that had an audio track. Although there was no oaudio on the track, the fact tthat it was there is what the issue was.
