Problem burning slideshow to disk

Question

I've been using various Easy xx Creator products for some time, but this is the first time I've tried making a slideshow. I put the pictures together (866 pix, 72 minutes of music) and previewed the slideshow on my computer. Looks great . . . BUT . . . when I try to burn, the program goes through the entire sequence . . . 97% complete, then bonks on the finish with "error 80170041 error while creating image". Tried using a DVD first (approx 2 gb), then doing a down-and-dirty photos-only VCD (300 mb). No luck. Any suggestions?

Sound like there is something in that first slide show that the computer doesn't like. If you did the slide show in Video Wave and not the two step assistant, output that file to a mpg2 for DVD best quality. The icon is the film reel above the preview screen. If there is something that the program doesn't like - music, bad transition timing, or other. The encoding will hang and you'll be able to see what is happening at that time. I'm not sure about the second although I have has some problems if the images are too large. Anyway ...

 

Read the thread in the EMC 9 Tips and Tricks forum about "one way of doing it" and follow the instructions for making an ISO file and then copying that to a disc. The process is the same for V8 and V9.

 

Make sure that you have a lot of free space on your hard drive and it is defragged just before you do the encoding. Shut off all other running programs including anti-virus and anti-mal ware. Se your computer to best performance and not to :let Windows decide". Same thing with your video device.
