Roxio Nxt4 Mydvd Closes When Trying To Process A Videowave File

Question

I have created a slideshow in Videowave but when I send to MyDVD the program will not allow me to choose "Create new disk". If I try, it looks for a path from a previous production. This path has now been deleted, along with the production which was originally in that path. At this point, MyDVD reports "can't find" and closes down.

 

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Roxio NXT4 complete, I have switched off all overheads including anti virus and anti malware, I have run a registry cleaner, but the program still keeps looking for the obsolete file path and then closing down. All CD functions, and the DVD from ISO function work fine.

 

The computer is a Core 2 Duo laptop, running at 2.2Ghz, in 3Gb RAM and with over 300Gb available on the hard disk. It's currently running Win 7 32 bit.

 

MyDVD works fine on my wife's i3 machine with 8Gb RAM and Win 10 64 bit.

 

I can't find a preferences setting which would allow me to set a new default path. Can anyone please suggest how I can tell MyDVD to stop looking for a file path that doesn't exist?

Hello,

 

The path you're complaining must be stored somewhere on your hard drive. If it isn't stored in a file (an .ini or .cfg or similar) then it's likely to be in the registry.

 

Note the path you're after

 

Run REGEDIT.EXE, and look for that path. It's usually some form of 'Ctrl + F' to find it. I can't give detailed instructions because I don't know what Operating System you're using.

 

If you find the path stored in the registry, Export that key in case you have to replace it, then delete it from the registry.

Just a weird thought here, but what happens if you recreate the path it's looking for? Is it just looking for a path? Or a specific file?

Thank you DG. I have recreated the path, put some suitable files in there but no luck. Ditto with regedit, will try again tonight with some other variables. I appreciate your help and will share the solution when it's found.

I have been loosely following this but it isn't making much sense to me.

 

With NXT 4 how exactly are you doing this - step by step.

 

In NXT 4 videowave you cannot 'send to MyDVD'... That has been is replaced by 'Prepare for Authoring', which simply creates a file file that you must manually add to MyDVD.

 

Since it is manually added, there is No Path for MyDVD to use.
