  1. Ok....that is where the problem lies, did not save it, thought I did,  I have the icon for what I thought was a saved version of the video but by moving my photos to a newer external drive, etc...the program cannot find them to restore the video...program seems to only save the file names but not the actual DVD files with it.

    I didn't realize I didn't have the actual finished product to open up and play or edit down the road.  That is how I tried to do this, thought I had my original project but I don't, didn't know that you cannot move photos away from where they came from while making the original project.

    I tried to send a small clip of movie but could not, it is too big and I do not how to shorten it.  As for HD Movie Maker, I do not have it. 

    So sorry,  wish my problem was an easy one for everyone who tried to help me.

    Take care and Thank you again





    Yes, started with photos that became a video with music.   

    Either you have a video OR photos one or the other. Originally did you take a bunch of photos and somehow make a video of them ???

    Yes...started with photos in VideoWave, transferred to MyDVD to finish,

    I do not want to fix the photos, just wanted to take some out and include others and change some of the songs.  It was my first attempt many years ago for my grandson's birthday and after watching it again, saw that I could have done better in parts.

    I didn't realize that it was not easy to upgrade it a bit. 

    Guess I am not experienced enough...:(

    Thanks again



  3. :)

    I thought it would be easier to edit the DVD but after going around in circles find it is not...:)

    Yes, I can recreate most of it but photos are now scattered and will take time to put back together again...but see now that it is the only way for me to do it without causing everyone here grief

    Thank you


    You are not causing grief but we are just trying to understand what you really want to accomplish by insisting on using photos.

    I would think that it is a lot easier to edit the video (which you now have as mpg files in a folder on your computer) then trying to recreate the video from the individual photos that are scattered all over your system. Of course it depends a lot on what editing changes you want to make and how profiecient you are with editing video.


  4. Roxio Creator 2010...I didn't write 2019 that I am aware of, if I did, my apologies must be a typo...

    I copied the VOB files and renamed them mpg. However, the files showed up as clips...I could watch them but they would not go into VideoWave as individual photos as when I originally made the video.  Either, I am missing a step to separate the video as individual photos and not a segment of the video in one piece.

    I also downloaded the free version of Wondershare  it extracted the vob files from the DVD but when it converted it to mpg it also came as movie clips and not separated photos.

    Sooo, I could not edit my files.  The extracted VOB files show up as just a few files for the whole video....wish I knew what I am doing incorrectly.

    Thank you again



  5. Yes, I am. 

    Will it open the mpg video file into separate photos, etc. as I originally put it together or just movie files that cannot be edited.

    I downloaded a free converter but it extracted and changed VOB files into mpg files, but as sections of video that I could just watch in Video Wave but could not edit.

    Would appreciate how and what I click on in Roxio Creator 10 to extract each photo segment so that I can edit the whole production....and is this possible.

    Thank you very much


  6. Dear REDWAGON

    Thank you so much for your patience and help, I appreciate it very much....:)

    I am an older person and I can do what I understand and therein is the problem...your talking format and I use the term extensions...so I answered incorrectly and must have frustrated you a lot...so sorry.  I made this video for my grandson's 13th birthday many years ago and when I recently watched it again saw areas that I wanted to improve on...guess that is where I went wrong...:)  Your recent answer, is the one I wanted......can it be done and how.  Now, I know I can, but not with the program I have, which all I thought I had to do was rename it, after extracting the file, by changing the extension/format and that would be it and that frustrated me.   I guess I should have listened to the old saying....."if it ain't broke, don't fix it"....:)

    REDWAGON....again thank you....) 

    I am running Windows 8.1 and will look for a free program for it.  As for your GOOD LUCK wishes, I probably will need it...:):)

    Have a great day...:)




    Thank you so much for your patience with me....appreciate it.

    So....can I extract the burned dvd and make it into a avi. or mp4 file and then use it that way in VideoWave to edit it.

    I am sorry...feel I am beating a dead horse, but would like to learn how to do it in case this happens again....probably easier to redo the whole video but am fighting it...:)

    Take care

    What are you referring to when you say "extracted video" Is it the video that you edited in Cyberlink ?

    what is the format of your Extracted video ? (avi, MP4 etc.)

    If you have a video that is compatible with the types of videos that DVD or Videowave are compatible with,

    you should be able to insert that video in videowave.



    Appreciate your help....yes, the video I made in MyDVD8 is the extracted video that I was able to do in Cyberlink.

    I don't remember it asking me what format, it just took the video and broke it down for me.

    I can redo it but for MyDVD to load it as an extracted file, what format do I need.

    Thanks again



    Thank you for your response, appreciate it.

    I feel very stupid but are you saying, that I cannot edit the "movie" that was extracted in Cyberlink program?  I no longer have the "movie" in either Videowave or MyDVD, if I did, I would be able to edit it without the disk or extracting it from my burned DVD.   I cannot get the extracted Cyberlink files to load in either MyDVD or Videowave.  I prefer working in MyDVD, easier for me to work with.  So...not sure if this is not possible in MyDVD program or I am not doing it correctly.

    Sorry, but I have never done this procedure before and feel somewhat lost.  My brother who likes Cyberlink helped me to extract the files and I thought I was home free...but guess not..:(

    Thank you again


  10. Hi bimicher


    Yes, I want to separate the video and photos so that I can edit the video a little differently.  I want to start the editing in MyDvD like I was starting to create one.  Actually, I want to create a newer version of the original.  I was able to save the video and open it up in MyDvd but it comes in as one big movie file and not individual frames so that I can keep some and change others.  Hope I am making myself clear.

    I am using My DVD 8.  I also have Roxio Creator 2010 which has MyDVD in it but I believe I used a stand alone Version 8.


    Thank you


  11. Hi Digita lGuru

    Thank you for your response, appreciate it.  MyDvd 8 and I also have Roxio Creator 10.

    I saved the DVD to my computer and pulled out the VOB files and sent it to MyDVD program.  However the whole movie/DVD is there but just as a whole movie.  I opened it in VideoWave but still only plays as a whole movie.  Need it to go in as individual photos to edit.

    If I had saved all photos I used in one place, I could put it all back in VideoWave to edit but for some reason I can't, either by not doing something correctly.

    Hope you understand what I am explaining what I have tried to do.  Does saving it through Explorer change the way it is saved, if yes, how do you open It up in Explorer to save.

    Thank you again






  12. Hi Digital...Thank you very much for responding. I have My Dvd 10 Premier and Roxio Creator 2010. Does one program have this function and the other doesn't? If yes, please tell me which one has it. Didn't realize I had both programs...possibly using both without realizing they are different. I haven't made any changes to my system.

  13. Hope someone can help me. I used to be able to enable transition duration by clicking on the transition, change or set duration and then click apply to all. When I click on the transition and then click on Transition Duration, a window opens up and says "There is no items to show in this view". I have to set each transition duration one at a time...has to be an easier way. This is on Creator 2010, My DVD 10 on a Vista operating system. Thank you :mellow:
