    video wave

    thanks for that i will try it and see i had not thought about shutting down anything else that is running as i had no problem on the old pc it is just a lot slower using video wave but it does the job okay. at least i have that as a fall back. i have roxio 8 but not installed on this pc i prefer using 7.5 i and its dvd builder menu themes. if all else fails i will try installing 8 and see if i still have problems. thanks again brian.

    video wave

    thank you for your comments. i know what you mean and that is what is so annoying the orange line whips across so fast with this new pc its a delight. the old one you can hear the pc groaning as it completes the task. i have tried saving every step and trying several steps before saving. it works fine then suddenly i click file top left in video wave to save and it is all shaded out. and it has completed the task and on the orange line. i am at a loss brian
  6. can any one help with this problem. i have made many photo dvds with narrations built in video wave and saved as dmsm. then burnt to disc in dvd builder. now i have a new pc it has explorer six and win media 10 {i had problems with ex7 media 11 before} i start building the production using jpeg photos and recording and adding narrations. as i normally do. after a few times of saving my work. i click file and everything is greyed and i can click on nothing not even exit. i close the programme using alt ctrl delete and end task. i reload videowave but cannot open the production. if i reboot the pc and try again it picks it up again and i can continue but anly for a couple of saves then it happens again. rebooting gets it back again . but after a couple of times repeating even a reboot does not allow me to open the file again. i did manage to complete the production once and selected a theme in dvd builder when i added the file the button appeared but it was empty. when i tried to reload the file in video wave again it would not open. after a couple of days tearing my hair out i thought maybe its a corrupt jpeg or a narration i have made. i copied all the photos and narrations onto my old pc. i made the complete production and burnt the dvd with no problems. it took a lot longer as its a slower pc. so no problem with files. i have repaired emc7 twice and uninstalled and reinstalled twice that has made no difference. my new pc is home built. abit fatal 1ty motherboard intelcore duo e6700 cpu 2gig ddr ram 2x200gig hdds 250gb freecom usb2 hdd nvidia ge force 8600 gts pci-e graphics win xp proffesional i have hdds partitioned win xp on c: roxio on e: and i save all productions on h: that should not be a problem ? the only different software between my new and old pcs is, the new has java 6 updates and latest quicktime. i would appreciate any ideas.

    cd rom drives

    thank you for your suggestions on how to fix my no cd roms problem. it was only a reformat and reload of win xp that finally sorted it. at least my pc is running sweetly now for a while. with no explorer 7 or win media 11. emc 7.5 dvd builder is now doing what it should. i have emc 8 on another pc and have had it there for some time. i have been trying to find any 3d transitions but no luck. can any one tell me if they are there,if so how do i get em. and can the menu thumbnail in dvd builder be animated as it can in 7.5. brian

    cd rom drives

    many thanks i will try both. but think ms is my best hope as windows tells me my rom drives are not working and refer to exception 37. cheers brian.
  9. has any one got any idea why i have no cd rom drives. i have removed win ex 7 and rolled back to 6 reinstalled emc 7.5 dvd builder now works fine. but i have lost my dvd and write rom drives. they have yellow symbols against them in hardware profiles. i have tried uninstalling reinstalling drivers etc. but to no avail. both drives were there after reinstalling 7.5 but i lost the drives when rebooting after finishing installation of emc 7.5. also tried removing and reinstalling 7.5 again. i did have win media 11 on my pc but removed that prior to removing exp 7. sitting her hopefully brian
  10. hi kelly i just went in to start then settings control panel then add or remove software and uninstalled explorer 7. worked like magic. brian not sure i know what you mean and where to change hardware settings? like you i prefer 7.5 for dvds. another thing i cannot understand with 8 is when you add a title and theme with 7.5 you can tick the box to animate thumbnails in the title and move or enlarge it, but with 8 there does not seem any options for doing that.? 8 seems a retrograde step. have you any idea what 9 is like. brian.
  11. dvd builder wont run ? whoever gave that advice to remove internet explorer 7 thank you very very much indeed. i have been tearing my hair out here with repairing emc 7.5 reinstalling and even loading it on my spare pc. even phoned roxio who were going to send me email of how to fix the problem but never did. just rolled back to explorer 6 now its all working fine. now can any one help me with transitions. i have roxio 8 but do not use it for video dvds as that does not appear to have any three d transitions. it is is in the transitions list but none in there. am i doing something wrong or does it just not have them. or is there a way of finding them. brian
