That error message indicates a problem with PAL vs NTSC. Are you sure your DVD is in PAL format?
Another possibility is an incorrect region setting when burning but that should always be automatically set to Region 0 when burning from Roxio.
Perhaps you could do a google search on " Incompatible TV setting" and something there might help you.
What are you trying to create? If you are not going to do any video editing there is no need to open Videowave at all. If all you want to do is create a DVD or BlueRay disc then simply launch "Create DVDs" from the Creator home page.
Perhaps you could describe in some detail what steps you are taking.
myDVD does not show *.ts files in its supported file formats but if you change the ts extension to mts it should work.
To see the Open File Dialog box in myDVD you
1-switch to Advanced Mode
2-click on the small icon in the upper right corner of the "Drag your content" here thumbnail
3-select Add Title from the drop-down menu
4-you should now see the list of supported formats
but why are you converting mp4 files to ts since myDVD supports mp4 files?
It is going to take some time to do what you want and that has nothing to do with merging the individual clips. You are converting the HD mp4 or mts clips to mpg (DVD compliant format) and that will take a long time. Also adding chapter points, menus,etc will also increase rendering times.
In my opinion that camcorder is overkill for what you want to do which is create DVDs
If the camcorder records to individual clips (no matter what format), then those clips will have to be "merged" to a single clip if that is what you want. This can be done easily with Roxio. Roxio of course can also extract the "sermon" from any video file.
It is not really clear from your post what you are trying to do.
C2012 is probably the best Roxio Creator version issued. Without telling us what your actual problems are, it would be pointless to recommend anything.
Please give some details about your project, source files, etc.
I am not quite clear on what you are trying to create - a DVD or a BLue Ray disc? If a DVD why are you fooling around with a "BlueRay option?
If a DVD then you will never get 2.35 hours of video on a DVD and have any watchable video. A standard DVD can only hold 60 minutes of best quality video.
When you talk about chapters are you talking about Titles or chapters within Titles. Chapters and Titles mean two completely different things in Roxio (and video jargon in general)
What are you trying to do when you are "editing chapters"? Moving chapters around on sub-menus is sure to create problems.
So have you searched your system for the dmsm file? Unless you deleted (have you checked the Recycle Bin) it it should still be somewhere in your system.
I would never create a single project containing 800 photos, etc. I would break it up into smaller sub-projects which can later be merged into the final project. Working with smaller projects makes editing a lot easier and faster.
I hope you are not burning to a DVD each time! Most of us first "burn" to a Video_TS folder or to an iso (image) file. If the burn is successful, they can be played with a software player like VLC. If you are happy then you can burn folder set or iso file to a DVD. This avoids creating a lot of DVD coasters.
Is your final project only 28 minutes in length? If yes, why do you have 15 chapters? That would be less then 2 minutes between chapters.
