8004520C Error While Encoding

Question

I have read about this problem a lot on here, but nothing has helped yet.

I am creating a slideshow to put on dvd.

using jpeg, and avi formats from a digital camera.

The program acts normal, until I try to burn it.I have done this same project several times in the past couple of years.

 

I have a xp dell, Intel® pentium 4 2.8 ghz, 2.79 ghz-256 ram, with 57.5 gb free space.

 

defrag did not work.

I also re-installed the software with service pack 2, same as i had before.

The project is 17 min. long.

 

I hope someone can help me. Thanks

What program, in the suite, are you using? Explain how you are going about trying to burn your production.

I have the project in video wave. I click on output, then burn with my dvd-express, then create disc.

I have created several slideshows in the past in dvd format with no problems.

My hope is a simple answer as to what that error means. I am guessing not enough ram on my pc or something like that. Somebody somewhere must know what triggers that error message?

Thanks.

Do you do regular maintenance on your computer?

 

Do you use a registry cleaner - don't!

 

Here is Roxio's db article on the error.(link)

If you use a registry cleaner, it screwed up your install. You may have to do a full uninstall and then a reinstall. Use this to uninstall, then do this and then reinstall with your anti-virus off.

 

Here are some highly recommended tune up tools.

 

Please let us know how you make out with this. You can skip the firmware update to your optical drive but do everything else suggested.

I posted this earlier I believe in the wrong spot. anyway,

I have read a lot of people have this problem, but I cant find out how to solve it.

My project, which is pictures and music for a slideshow, is in videowave and everything looks good.

I click output, burn to my dvd express, then create disc. then the error. it wont even start the encoding.

 

I have completed several of these projects in the past with no problems.

 

System specs:

dell 3000

pentium 4, 2.8ghz, 533 fsb

microsoft xp. sp3

512 mb ram, 400mhz

57 gb free space on hd.

 

Defrag did not work, plus I reinstalled software with sp2. still no good.

the project is 17 min. long

 

Thanks, and I hope someone knows what triggers this error.

What software do you have? We can get it moved to the right forum, if this isn't it.

Grandpa bruce: I have roxio creator 2009.

 

Sknis: I do not do regular maintenance on my pc. but since roxio quit working I have done a defrag, plus deleted all cookies, history, and temp internet files, but it did not help.

 

I do not use a registry cleaner. I'm not really sure what one is:\

 

I have already uninstalled then reinstalled the software. I had to download sp2 before it would boot up, but I remember it did that a couple years ago when i first installed it.

 

I checked the cnet tuneup site you requested. Im sure that is a good site, but something like that scares me. Maybe its wrong, but I really dont like using stuff like that. I always try to keep any downloading at a minimum to try and avoid pc crashes. sorry.

Try approaching the burn in a different way. Open MyDVD (Create DVDs-Advanced), then click on Add Movie, and browse to where your VideoWave .dmsm project is, click on it, then on Add. Make whatever changes you want to the menu, click on Burn, uncheck the Burn to disc, and check the Save disc image file. Browse to the location where you want to save it, click it, then click Burn.

 

If it goes through, burning the .iso file, you can then burn that to a disc using Video Copy and Convert.

 

Give that a shot, and let us know if you are successful.

Grandpa bruce,THANK YOU, THANK YOU. it worked!

After I made the file, I went to it and right clicked on "burn with creator".

It opened up Roxio creator, but under the "Data-copy" tab.

Then Burn disc image, if I am reading my notes correctly.

 

The only thing I can see that is different is that I just opened up MyDVD instead of letting video wave open it., because I tried before to just burn to file, but it wouldnt work.

 

Also after I burnt The first copy I went back to do another, but then I changed my menu first, then added my movie from the file, and I got the encoding error?? Its hard to believe that software is that picky.

 

I did make a change in my project, and burnt another disc, per your instructions, with no problems.

Thanks, Greg

You're welcome. Use that same approach in the future. Forget about MyDVD Express and burning directly to a DVD. One little hiccup, and you have a coaster.

 

A lot of folks have had a burn problem when sending the file, from VideoWave to MyDVD Express. That is why I always save the file in VideoWave, then close VideoWave, open MyDVD and bring in the VideoWave .dmsm file for authoring and burning to an .iso file.
