  1. 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.

    That's what I am thinking now --- I might have to redo the whole project.   And it was a big one --- over 800 photos!  It has taken me 2 months to get it all put together, including the background music.  Can't still understand why I finished 3 recent projects and had no problem and with this one I'm having a problem.   Guess it is all this computer tech stuff :)  Thanks for the feedback and your suggestions.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. I don't think you can create an "Audio only" DVD that can be played on a DVD player. You need some video to go with the audio, ie, you have to create proper video DVD.

    clanp has to give a lot more information on his project. How was the iso made, what is in the iso?


  5. A google search seems to indicate that this so-called virus is only detected by Microsoft Defender. Microsoft states that it is related to the Cloud based Defender and is probably a false positive. It seems to prevent that installation of other programs as well not only Roxio

    The original video was produced with a very old Roxio Creator program and then burned onto a DVD.  I do not know how to edit it with Creator NXT5 in Videowave.  Are you suggesting I treat it as a video clip and mute or turn off the sound?  And if so, how would I then be able to add narrative and music on those separate tracks?  It is about 15 minutes long.  Any help will be very much appreciated.

    How old is your "very old Roxio Creator" program, ie what version did your use? The basic edit operations in Videovaw NXT 5 have not changed in a long time.

    First of all, mute the native track.

    Have added the DVD video to the video tack in NXT 5 Videovawe?

    Do you have the narrative and music that you want to add?

    I have used several Roxio Creator software programs for many years.  I now use Creator NXT 5 Pro.  I want to use a DVD I made with an old version of Roxio software and remove the sound so I can re-create it and include narration and music which will be acceptable for You Tube use,  because the music used originally is copyright protected and prohibited on You Tube.  I am at a loss to know if or how I can accomplish this.  In My Videowave I added the DVD and then attempted to edit out the sound and was unsuccessful.  Please describe to me if this is possible.  I am trying to avoid producing an entirely new video from scratch.  An example of what I am hoping to accomplish on You Tube can be seen at my channel:  travldtwoseven at www.youtube.com



    If you have the DVD video in Videowave then simply mute the native audio track. Add any "new" audio on the other available audio tracks. After rendering the new video you will no longer

    I just recorded this old commercial.  Notice how the video starts at one point, and the audio a quick second later.  When I click record, nothing happens, then a second or two later the recording indicator pops up.  I'm assuming the video gets caught the exact second I press the record button, and the audio when the indicator says it's recording.

    I do media archiving for an Australian rock band, so I have contact with other people that transfer VHS to PC conversions.  They never seem to have a problem with their devices, and are running on PCs with much older technology.

    Maybe this just isn't a good product (?)  This is the second Roxio converter that I have gone through.  The first one I had to return, as it was overheating and creating bleeps in my audio.

    You should have the tape playing several seconds before the part you want to capture and you should also start capturing earlier. It takes a few seconds before the actual capture starts after pressing the "Start" button

    I have been using the capture device several years and have never had the problem you are describing. The device always warms up when attached to the PC just like all other devices.

    I was able to do it in RoxioNXT4 using "Copy and Convert", when I upgraded to RoxioNXT6 and tried the same thing I got the error message sited in the initial question, I have since found a work around by doing the process I outlined above.

    What workaround are you using in NXT 6? I thought you said NXT 6 does not work

    Have you copied the Video_TS folder from the DVD to your hard drive? Never work directly from a DVD, it slow things down too much. You also have to have the DVD in the drive every time you work on the project.


  10. What did you use to convert from VHS to DVD? Did you create a proper video DVD which should have a Video_TS folder containing a series of ifo,bup and vob files. NXT 6 has no problems with properly created video DVDs and no further decoder pack is required

    If you don't have this then you have a data DVD and you will have to give more information about the files on that DVD.


    What does this mean: " I try and use the copy and covert (I am taking clips from home movies that I had coverted from VHS to DVD) it cashes OK, "? 

    Why are you using Copy and Convert to edit your video? Why not use the video editor of NXT 6

    Without obvious reason my videowave seams to have problems to process any kind of photos and videos. I have upgraded the product from Creator NXT pro 4 to NXT pro 6 - same problem.

    I looked for Windows 10 video driver update - no option found.

    Can anybody help on this?

    PS: also existing old productions no longer work.

    So what program are you currently using? You posted in the C2012 program forum.

    Most old projects are not compatible with new versions of Roxio.

    Exactly what problems are you having? There is very little information in your post to offer any solutionj
