I have a project in MyDVD 10 Premier with 4 slideshows that I'm trying to create for my brothers 50th birthday party.  I am trying to create a DVD that I can put on loop at the party so that after the 4th slideshow plays, it will loop back to the first and keep playing all evening.  All I've been able to find, is that in order for it to loop continuously, I need to create it as "DVD, no menus".  But when I select this, it is asking me to open a video file.

PLEASE HELP!  I just need to be able to have these four slide shows (each with different photos and audio) play in a continuous loop.

How have you created the current, 4 slideshow project? Did you first create each slideshow as a separate project using Videowave and save each project as a VW project? (the recommended and best method to create such a project)

You cannot change "project types" once you have started a project. When you select "DVD, no menus" you are starting a new project. Any open project does not carry over to the new project.

You have to add the 4 slideshows again.

I am OK with adding the slideshows again.  I selected "DVD, no menus" and assumed I would have to add them back in.  But when I select "New Project > DVD, no menus" it is prompting me to select an existing Media File and I'm not sure what file it is looking for.  I did not create the slideshows using Videowave and save each one as a VW project.  I will try doing that and see what happens.

I did as you suggested and created each slide show as a Video production and then put them all together in a new DVD with no menus project and it worked!  Thanks so much for your help!
