Hi, Can anyone help me please???

I have spend weeks creating a movie/slideshow in Roxio EMC 10 MyDVD.  The content became to big to fit on one disc so I started another production.  I have now almost finished but would like to copy, or move, one of the slideshows from one production to another, i.e another saved production file.  Is this possible?  I can copy and paste a whole menu's slideshow/movie to another menu on the same production but not to another saved production.  The paste option is not available when I open up the production that I wish to move the movie/slideshow to.

Which makes me wonder, is what I'm trying to do actually possible?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

E.

As far as I know what you want is not possible.
There may be a workaround though which does not involve any copy & paste.

First of all save your full, long project. Then delete all the video/photos, etc that you want on disc 2 and then save the remaining project as Project A - this will be disc 1. Now re-open the full project and delete all the items that make up project A and now save the remainder as Project B - this will now be disc 2.

BTW, what do you mean by the "content became to big"? When creating videos it is the time length of your project that matters. A standard 4.7GB DVD can hold 60 minutes of video at Best quality. Any longer the video has to be compressed to fit. Unless your project is very long, there are ways to put everything on a DVD without too much loss of quality.

The content is too long.  Disc one is 4.6GB and disc two is 10.2GB.  My plan was to move some of the content on to disc one and use two 8.5GB dual layer discs.  But I can't work out out to move the content from one Project A to Project B?

I'm not sure I understand your answer.  I think it's assuming that all the content is on one production?  It's not, it's on two separate saved productions?  As I said, I'm not sure it's possible to move from one production to another but I was getting desperate so thought I'd chance my arm!
