Radar - Protools conversion Help

Does anybody know how this can be done?
How are the files stored on a Radar Back-up?
I know zip about Radar.

Hi T_R_S,

On RADAR, “Backup” is a RADAR project archival function in a proprietary format, and can’t be read by Pro Tools.
You should use the “File Export” function on RADAR. File Export will export the audio in BWAV format, which can be imported into Pro Tools, and using the “spot” function will locate the audio to the correct time code location in your Pro Tools session. On RADAR you can File Export to DVD-R, DVD-RAM, CD-R, external hard drive, or via Ethernet.
Another option is to record natively in BWAV format. Once you have recorded on RADAR in BWAV format, you perform the “File Flatten” function (quick about 10 seconds), and then you can remove the recording drive from RADAR and mount it on your Pro Tools system. Once mounted on your PT system, you can import all the time stamped BWAV audio files directly into Pro Tools.

Give me a call or an email if you would like to go over the specifics of performing this.

I exported my files from Radar onto DVD-Rs, but I can't get a computer to recognize them at all. Am I missing a step?

I transfer directly via lightpipe.

Does your computer read the DVD as a "blank disk" or a disk without any audio files on them?

Are you waiting for the DVD-R to auto eject out of the RADAR first? RADAR exports to the system drive first as a disk image, and then burns the disk. There should be a status bar at the bottom on your RADAR screen of the burn progress, after the "export complete" message.

If you put the disk back into RADAR, what does RADAR view the disk as?

the computer doesn't recognize the dvds as media at all.. i haven't put the dvds back into Radar to see what happens yet.. should be able to tomorrow or tuesday..

i waited until the dvd ejected, after it created the image and burned the disk..

does it matter that i'm using a dvd+r? i just noticed that..

Currently RADAR only supports burning to DVD-R and not DVD+R.
Try it with a DVD-R.
What software are you running?
I believe we have a software fix that won't let users falsely burn to DVD+R disks.
I'll have to check what version that is on Monday.
Email me, and i'll let you know.
