Why Can't I Burn A Dvd Of My Photoshow

Question

I need to burn a DVD of my Photoshow. I have paid $40 for a 1 year premium membership. How do I make the DVD?

 

You don't come here very often do you?

 

The program is broken in several ways:

1) The option to make a DVD doesn't work.

2) The option to make an mp4 file doesn't work

3) If you have the desktop version of PhotoShow 6 and you are running w8 or W10, Then a recent update from Windows broke the program so it doesn;t run.

4) If you are still running W7 or earlier, then you can use that to download your PhotoShows to your computer. Select the one you want to burn to the DVD and in the third step, make an mpg2 file and then burn that wil a free program (Windows Movie Maker will work).

5) I think the on-line sharing still works so you can post the PhotoShow to your family and friends.

 

If none of those suits you, get your money back after downloading all your PhotoShows to your desktop.

I paid for Premium membership, but there are no options to burn a DVD. I need a DVD to play on a TV. I have spent the last 24 hours making a slide show. Why can't I burn a DVD?

 

I have Windows 8

It is BROKEN. Get your money back.

 

We are users and have no control over the program. We have been told that it can't be fixed.

 

You could always try to capture the video from your computer screen (there are free programs that will do it. Convert it to the desired format (mpg2) and use another free program to burn it to a disc.

 

Please, I gave you some options in my first post. please take time to read it. Yes, I know you are angry but don;t take it out on us (previous) users.

Thank you Digital Guru. The PHotoshow software is so easy to use. It is a huge disappointment to find out it doesn't work. I will ask for a refund and then search for some other software that does work.

 

I had PHotoshow a few years ago and I was able to burn a DVD. Too bad that capability is gone.

 

Thanks for all your information

I am such a novice. Exactly how can I load my Photoshow to my desktop? Can I then make a DVD? I want to play my Photoshow on a TV where there isn't an internet.

 

The whole thing depends on if you can get the desktop version of PhotoShow to work. If your W8 is not up to date, then you may have some luck.

 

Download the desktop version of PhotoShow from your membership page and install it. Open it, sign in and then go to the top menu. to select 'Online" and then "Download My PhotoShows" select the one(s) you want to download to your computer. Select the one you want to put onto your media --- forget the DVD for now. Select to Export the PhotoShow to a thumbdrive (aka Memory Stick) as a wmv file. Most modern TVs have the ability to play a video from a thumbdrive. Of course you can put more than one converted PhotoShow on a thumbdrive The TV should give you the option to play your selection.

 

If you don't want to use a memory stick, Export the file(s) as a mpg2 file. I believe that Windows 8 still gives you the ability to burn movies to a DVD Note use a menu or the files will play one after another and when finished start all over again.

 

Sorry, my computers are either W7 or W10 so I can't be sure about Windows Movie Maker. which should be on your computer or can be downloaded for free.

There is also no place to get your money back. Have you tried to cancel your subscription or change your credit card number? Not possible.

 

Edited to get reply out of the quote.

can I ask a question to add to this topic? I don't want to pile on, but I am afraid if I don't ask here, it will be lost in a thread.

 

I copied my show to a thumb drive because the photos were not burning in the dvd, but it came out on the drive as a small show with all the external stuff such as themes and such as you were building the show. How can I make it come out full screen on the drive, as I have given up hope about burning a dvd after 18 attempts on one show. I have a party to go to to show the show so I am hoping they will have a place on their tv for the drive. I am not exactly sure how to make a mpg2 file, but willling to learn. I was to have made 10 copies of this dvd which I can't do now. Thanks

From the downloaded PhotoShow desktop version, convert the PhotoShow (step 3) to a wmv or mpg2 file and put that on a thumb drive.

the the wav version and the mpg2 file, still no photos, I do not know how to reduce the resolution. I need to find another program that is user friendly like this one and pay for it. any suggestions? I don't care if I have to pay for it, don't want the free version. I have a show tht is 280 photos, about 5 music files and 26 minutes long.

New high resolution camera - didn;t bother to mention that to anyone. Trying to use the new high resolution photos.

 

Get one of your friends to help edit the photos to reduce the resolution. ! OR Watch these tutorials (link).

 

Answered in another p.m. Fast Flicks (link) NO internet web site like PhotoShow but you wanted somehting that would do DVDs -- or you can use YouTube to upload so others can see it.

 

I will not be answering any more private messages on this subject. Sorry
