    the only file option when "save as" after working on a production in videowave is "DMSM" .

    the problem is that I cannot "ADD VIDEO" of a DMSM file,or a DAT file to a new production?

    I want to take several small saved productions and put them together into one production. But I get a message of" WARNING, one or more of the files you are trying to add cannot be edited, and have not been saved"

    can this be done with creator nxt6. running windows10.


    A dmsm file and its associated dat file are not video files. The dmsm file is a text file which contains the instrutions on how to process your project including the source files used, transitions and effectsapplied, etc. It cannot be added to a project using the "add" option. The "Add" option is used to add already existing video files and/or image files.

    To "save" a video file of your project (ie, render) you use the "Output" option on the main menu and then select "Export As"

  2. THe option to burn the DVD is found on the NXT 6 Home page under Create DVDs. If you don't have that option then you did not install the program myDVD during the install process.


    If your mpg is longer then about 60 minutes it will not fit on a standard DVD. You will have to usea DL DVD or reduce the bitrate in Videowave to make the file smaller

    I installed EMC 9 when it first came out and saved 21 DVD images of home movies at that time.  I would like to install the current version of "Roxio CD & DVD Burning" software to access and burn DVD's from my library.  The image files have a gi identifier.   My present desktop is a new build with Rysen 6 processor, W10, and LG M-disk capable burner. Are my legacy image files compatible with the latest Roxio products?

    If all you want to do is burn you "gi" image file to a DVD, then your could try the free program IMGburn. It claims to handle the "gi" format image file

  4. Unfortunately Frank gave you incorrect instructions.

    nyDVD has been thoroughly castrated and is only a shadow of the "old" versions (pre NXT 5). It no longer accepts the dmsm project file as it did previously. You now have to select the "prepare for DVD authouring" icon on the NXT 6 menu bar. This will allow you to create the mpg file required by myDVD. Once this file has been created, start myDVD and now you can create the DVD. If you still have a Roxio version which allows you to create the DVD directly from Videowave, I would revert to it. Lately every "new" Roxio Creator version seems to be a step backwards 😞


  5. I downloaded the file and tried playing it with VLC  - no audio. I then used NXT 7's myDVD to create an iso file which played fine with audio.

    Back in VLC, I found that under audio/audio track there are 2 audio tracks listed: Track 1 has no audio while Track 2 has audio. Does anybody else see this?

    there is only one letter-number that is either an O or a 0 and it looks like a 0, not an O but I tried both and it still has a red x, every other letter and number are plain as day as to what they are.

    I have a nice desk lamp with a nice shiny new bright LED bulb in it and can see very well each and every letter and number.

    it starts with two numbers then a dash, then two letters, two numbers, and a letter, then four letters, and a number,  last two letters, then the 0 followed by two letters.

    the only questionable letter/number is the 0 and I tried t with 0 and with O and it does not like it, either way, all other letters and numbers are plain as day so that there can be no mistake as to what they are.

    The serial code for Roxio VHS to DVD 3  should look like this: MV-MB4VL-7CPZZ-K1J2K

    The code you are describing certainly is different.

    Did you have it installed before and did you register? If yes then you can get the serial number from the Roxio website

  7. That requirement is not misleading - it states exactly what is required. Many software companies have the requirement for an internet connection when installing software.

    You have 30 days to request a refund and it is quickly given.

    Without an internet connection you cannot get any updates to the program.


    BTW, how did you you download the package if you don't have an internet connection?

    Loaded but very, very slow.  Tried to create a slideshow...unable to see the photos to organize...tried to run it and it hangs at 22%.  I loved Creator 2010 but will not run on windows 10 so I upgraded. 

    Perhaps if you were to explain the steps you are taking, then perhaps someone can help you.

    What is very,very slow mean? What do you mean by " unable to see the photos to organize "?

    Details please!

    Thank you for your reply. Yes I have thought about splitting the file. But surely 10.5 would compress to 8.5gb but how do I do it. A DL disk is 8.5 gb my problem is that in copy and convert I cannot get this 144 minute file above 4.20 GB. I am hoping that 10.5 Gb on a DL disk is better than compressed down to 4.20 Gb because the quality is awful

    Have you tried the Custom settings under Video in VCC? There you can set the bitrate which should reduce the mpg file size when rendered. You might then be able to burn that mpg file to a DL DVD.

    Can your "customers" play DL DVDs?

    been trying to download music from cassette player to CD. what format does sound editor download in? I can see the burn on CDs, but won't play back?

    mpg is video not audio or did you mean mp3? What are the filenames on the CD your burned?

    What exactly are you trying to create: a audio CD or a Data CD?

  11. If you want to trim a few seconds from any video clip you have to use Videowave. Perhaps it is time you looked at some of the many tutorials on the web that show you how to use Videowave. Even the Help file for VideoWave (which is not horrible) gives a good description on how to use the Trim feature

    Simply clicking on the Prepare for DVD Authouring will of course do nothing if you don't have a video clip on the timeline. Videowave has to be used if you want to do any editing such as trimming, splitting, adding transitions, effects etc.

    nope this is the only screen that shows up is that above nothing else I have rerached out to Roxio about the issues but they are slow responding they basicly want me to do a clean boot disable everything and try to install there software that they send me from google drive which my key doesn't work for so waiting for that then will try. if not I will pull warranty 

    Did you ever do a google search on the "APC INDEX MISMATCH" error message? It certainly happens often since the search shows 260,000 search results

    Yes it does play on my computer and the only error message I get on DVD player is Incompatible TV system setting .

    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.

    Using NXT6 in Win 10

    MYDVD does not recognise DMSM files created in Videowave so have used OUTPUT and make movie, selected PAL then DVD playback which give me MPEG2 for DVD best quality. When the disc is burnt it will not play in my stand alone DVD player which is set for PALI have used various previous versions for over 10 years with no problems. Can anyone help please

    Does it play in the computer DVD player?

    Is there any error message on your stand alone DVD player?
