The chapters part of the program seems to be very clunky. I wasted most of a day trying to get it to work but the program kept telling me that it needed to close down and there wasn't any alternative but to do so. My day ended up in total frustration. I'm using Windows 7 and an HP computer with an I7 processor.a day further on I tried a De-frag an it didn't work. I then tried a work-around by exporting my production to my hard disc from Videowave (selected a DVD HD format) and later loaded the saved production into MyDVD then added chapters manually. It did work but my concern is that I shouldn't have to do that.

You have not supplied any information at all on how you are trying to setup your chapters. The recommended method for setting up chapters is to use myDVD.

Hi myguggi,

I had created the chapters using myDVD according to the manual, and it was trying to burn the DVD when it would advise me that an error had occurred & needed to restart the program , hence losing my work (this happened several times).

Did you not save your project before starting the burn?

Some information on your project would help. How long in time is it? At what point does the error occur? What is the error message?

I thought you said that it worked using Videowave to create the project? Now you are saying you got an error?
