Question

I have made several DVDs using the Roxio Creator 2011.  I have had no problems up until now.   I finished my project and was going to burn it to a disc when I keep getting the message "MISSING PRODUCTION IN TITLE".   When I click on the option to VALIDATE PROJECT, that is when I get the missing in production title message.  It won't allow me to burn my project.  And there is no help on how to rectify this issue.  Anyone with any ideas on this???  What would be causing this error to come up when I definitely have named my project?

Doesn't that message include an option to locate the missing file?

Assuming it does, it will tell you what file(s) are missing and you can either find them or see where you need to go from there.

The usal suspects in this are that you moved or deleted a folder/file that was part of your original project.

There is a button that says "GO TO ERROR".  When I click on that button, it takes me to page where there is no project.   I know my project is in my files because I can click on it otherwise and it comes up.  It is just not letting me burn the project to a disc.  I have tried editing the title of my project, and still it will not let me burn it.  When I try to VALIDATE the project, the MISSING IN PRODUCTION FILE keeps coming up.   The validation box tries to come up but it keeps getting blocked by the error message.

I am able to play/preview this project without any problems.  It just won't let me burn it to disc.

Mine goes like this:

The Error message:

5b3a2db6c5d0b_MissingFile1.thumb.jpg.d1a17bec3d8e12645f5ae36e2e441b27.jpg

After Go to Error is clicked:

5b3a2dc32448b_MissingFile2.thumb.jpg.8a73720d24c5fd989c008071e11a8a6f.jpg

After Show Files is clicked:

5b3a2dcb119b1_MissingFile3.thumb.jpg.61c3ab3fe200c4c1f934968208769016.jpg

If those are the steps you take, it should tell you what is missing. What do you get?

Wild guess here but that might indicate that you used a VideoWave project (dmsm) to make your MyDVD Project and it is no longer avaliable where MyDVD expects it to be.

See if you can locate the dmsm file and make sure it opens ok in VideoWave. You may have to create a new project in MyDVD to get it to work.

That's what I am thinking now --- I might have to redo the whole project.   And it was a big one --- over 800 photos!  It has taken me 2 months to get it all put together, including the background music.  Can't still understand why I finished 3 recent projects and had no problem and with this one I'm having a problem.   Guess it is all this computer tech stuff :)  Thanks for the feedback and your suggestions.

So have you searched your system for the dmsm file? Unless you deleted (have you checked the Recycle Bin) it it should still be somewhere in your system.

I would never create a single project containing 800 photos, etc. I would break it up into smaller sub-projects which can later be merged into the final project. Working with smaller projects makes editing a lot easier and faster.

I don't want to sound dumb, but how do I search for the dmsm file?  I have looked through all my Document files and I don't see anything that says dmsm.  My project is divided into 4 separate Chapters but they are all finalized in the one project to fit on one DVD.  There is nothing resembling that in my Recycle Bin either.

Not dumb at all!

Use Windows Explorer. You can set your location to Libraries and type dmsm into the search window.

You can do your search for your entire drive by selecting it on the left side.

I was able to bring up a list of all dmsm files.  Now what?  There was no file describing my "missing file".

I don’t know how but it appears that the project file was deleted.

Second thought... Open MyDVD and look at Files- Recent to see what the name is for that dmsm file. Then search for that.

 If you can’t find it, it was deleted.

By chance didn’t you start the project in VideoWave? You most likely did and that means you can start a new MyDVD project and just add the VideoWave project to it as a movie.

Well, I think my problem has been solved --- my computer just died and I lost everything.  So I will have to definitely start over.  Thanks to all who have tried to help me in this matter.  I really appreciated all the advice.

Really sorry to hear that :(

Even if the PC has died, you can normally recover the HDD data if it still works. Now if the HDD does not spin up then it is not worth the cost to have someone recover it.

The registry was gone.  I had a friend look at it and nothing could be recovered.   I have an external drive that I did a back up back in February.  I had my granddaughter bring over her Windows 10 laptop and we plugged in my external drive and everything came up!  I still might have to start over on my project but I am happy enough that I will still have most of the info that was on my old hard drive.  Again, thanks for all your advice.  I really appreciate it.
