Can't Create DVDs from VideoWave 7

Question

I can create videos but get an error when I try and go from Videowave 7 to DVD builder. I cannot burn DVDs, or even get the video to translate to the DVD builder application. However, I can import the video to InterVideo WinDVD Creator and burn a DVD with the Video file created originally in Videowave. I haven't used the Videowave software in about a year. A year ago I was able to burn DVDs without a problem.

I am running Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 2 on a Compaq Presario AMD Athlon XP 3000+ at 2.10 GHz with 448 MB of RAM.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

:angry: I'm having the same problem and it's very frustrating! I have capture d video via my digital camcorder and I've edited it from 3 miniDV video cassettes. I've SAVED THE PRODUCTION AS and I SAVED OUTPUT TO: video file. I've RENDERED and FINISHED and CANNOT get it to BURN to DVD.

 

I also RENDERED it as a GOOD QUALITY mpg and it RENDERED to 388MB (1hr: 39min) and I rendered at the DEFAULT setting and it created a 5.3GB file size. The 5.3GB file is REALLY to big to BURN to my 4.7GB DVD disk so I'd like to know can I CONDENSE IT in its RENDERED state. Neither RENDERING will begin to BURN. I just get an ERROR message....well, not a message, but a WARNING that "DVD BUILDER HAS ENCOUNTERED PROBLEMS AND NEEDS TO CLOSE".

 

PLEASE, someone HELP, I need to BURN by Monday.

In addition to what James said there, the amount of RAM (448 MB) not only is on the lowish side but also tells us that you are using an onboard video chip and not a dedicated video card. You seem to have 64 MB allocated to the card (hence the 448 MB available RAM)

 

I'd recommend a hardware upgrade - more RAM and a separate graphics card if you want to be able to render video successfully

Check out edited out. It will do what you want.

If you saved the file as a .iso image, just open that with Disc Copier and it will shrink it to fit with some loss of quality

An extra program is not needed as long as the project total or any individual Title does not exceed 2 hours!

 

Simply burn to file (ISO) and use Disc Copier to burn to disc, allowing it to re-render to fit.

 

Of course anything in excess of 1 hour on a 4.7gb disc will suffer in quality…

You and James seem to have short memories so I'll remind you that shrinking in Disk Copier produces the dreaded 60 minute transcoding glitch! The only way around it is in that thread.

Just a side question: Would you happen to know if the same glitch happen in version 9?

As a last resort you can try running the InterVideo WinDVD Creator from your software and when it starts select create CD/DVD with existing file. This will allow you to burn the video you created onto a DVD using the WinDVD software instead of VideoWave 7 software. Unfortunately, this won't help with your 5.3 GB file problem. You may just have to edit your file to get it down in size.

Nope. Remember that when I first came to Roxio I had just bought V. 8 but dumped it (because of excessive capture times). That experience soured me on "upgrades". V. 7.5 does everything I need with a few workarounds. No need to keep returning to the trough, if you know what I mean. And no. I'm not even interested in the trial version, thank you.

IE7 and WMP11 are known to break EMC7, as posted at the top…

 

Do either of you have these MS updates installed?

 

 

Thanks for the advice.

 

How can I tell if IE7 and WMP11 are installed?

 

I checked my software through add or remove programs and only found the following:

 

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB886903)

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0

Microsoft Compression Client Pack 1.0 for Windows XP

Microsoft User-Mode Driver Framework Feature Pack 1.1

Microsoft Visual J#.NET REdistributable Package 1.1

MSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB927978)

MSXML 6.0 Parser

Windows Installer 3.1 (KB893803)

Windows Installer Clean Up

Windows Media Format 11 Runtime

Windows XP Serive Pack 2

James, thank you very much for your help!

 

I downgraded from Windows Media Play 11 and that didn't solve the problem.

 

When I down graded from Internet Explorer 7 to Internet Explorer 6 everything worked fine in VideoWave 7.

 

I am just hoping all the iPod SW my daughter uses doesn't get effected. You know how that can go...

 

Much obliged.

I have the same or similar behaviour on all DVDs that I have created of videos that are > 60 minutes. The funny thing is that the playback behaviour is different on different stand alone DVD players. On the one player it it jumps back to a previuos point, I press stop on the remote, then play and the video plays Ok from then on. On the other player it "freezes" for about 5 seconds and then continues playing normally. On the 1st player this behaviour occurs always around the 65-70 minute mark while on the 2nd its always around the 62 minute mark. All these DVDs contain an about 90 minute video that was rendered to an iso file and then burned to DVD using Disc Copier. I have over a 100 of these DVDs that display this behaviour and it would be nice to know what causes this.

I have the same issue that myguggi described but this was in V7.5. I still have to watch the video (105 minutes) I created with EMC9 to see if the same problem persists.

http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?showtopic=12924

 

Why not answer your own question. My inquiring mind would like to know, did you have the same ' glitch ' with EMC9?

 

We are working with v7 here, correct?

Just one more note, using InterVideo WinDVD to create a DVD from video files edited in VideoWave 7 cut off some of the video at the end of the production. In addition, some of the video was choppy on the DVD. Not a clean alternative. Best to downgrade to Internet Explorer 6.

The dreaded 60 minute glitch is one that very, very few have been able to reproduce… I have yet to see it and tried very hard to reproduce it.

 

Likewise it only appears on some Players but not all!

 

There is always someone reporting skipping on DVD's with V8 as well as V9. But I do not believe that anyone has described exactly what Sistercape has encountered.

Since V7 has been out of production almost 2 years now and is easily broken by MS updates (IE7 & WMP11), I think it would be more prudent to upgrade to V9 rather than invest in another software with limited capabilities.

Remove them ;)

 

IE7 will uninstall from add/remove programs - for WMP11 you'll need to hunt a bit as it isn't quite as straightforward

Several people on that thread experienced it.

I observed it on two set top players as well as my PC.

But I do not believe that anyone has described exactly what Sistercape has encountered.
Please reread the original thread. I am not alone!

. . . I think it would be more prudent to upgrade to V9 rather than invest in another software with limited capabilities.
All the programs needed to fix the glitch are FREEWARE. Only investment is time spent in a learning curve. ;)

Please do not quote pieces of my text, it loses context and one might think you are molding it to fit your viewpoint…

 

'few' vs. 'several' is a matter of semantics. I say it is few based on the millions of V7 users. Several, in light of millions is still 'few' where I come from…

 

 

The complete sentence was, "There is always someone reporting skipping on DVD's with V8 as well as V9. But I do not believe that anyone has described exactly what Sistercape". Since you do not run V8 or V9( right?), yes you are alone. If I am mistaken on that, please correct me.

 

However as the program you suggest includes decryption it is not legal to use in the US and Canada and not allowed for posting on this site. I have taken liberty of deleting the link from your post. (Please do not post this link again or it will be reported to a moderator)

 

We have been over this same ground on other occasions and I am not going to pulled into one of your hissing matches. You have your opinions on this and I have mine. I do not expect to change your mind, nor should you expect to change mine! I do wish I had a simple fix for you, but alas, I do not…

That's a bit like throwing out the apples because the oranges are moldy or the proverbial baby with the bathwater. The discussion in this thread wasn't about decryption nor have I ever suggested it or used it. "That program" (now unmentionable by decree of James Almighty) offered people a workable solution to Roxio's buggy software and IMO denying access to it for that purpose is an abuse of power and does a great disservice to the users of this forum. FWIW, I heard that the author of that unmentionable program is now writing the Nero rendering engine! I'm not a Nero fan but at least they recognize talent when they see it and their users will benefit. Methinks this whole brouhaha is more personal than anything else. Too bad frustrated users are caught in the middle and now up the proverbial creek . . . yada, yada. Oh wait, they can "prudently" upgrade to a newer version (which may or may not solve the problem - as far as I know, there's no guarantee it will)! Edited by sisterscape

I would guess that you don't know much about why the author of said software went to work for Nero. He was about to be busted by the movie industry. ;)

 

The last update for said softwarware was in July of 2004, shortly after 1-2-3 Studios was run out of business, via a lawsuit by the movie industry.

 

The encoder in EMC 7.5 is superior to the last encoder in said software. I have used both, and I prefer EMC 7.5. I have not experienced the problem that you are having, and if you think that I am totally pro Roxio, you may want to read my post in the EMC 9 forums, for which I may be banned.
