    disk blank after burning

    I compiled two slideshows using Video Wave. I then added them to the My Menu window of MYDVD. Once on the My Menu Screen, I clicked on Preview and both slideshows played without a problem. I then clicked on the "burn" Button. Then next screen that came up was the Burn Project screen. I went through the steps and not I am trying to burn again. Okay, I just went and upgraded the firmware to my dvd-rw and that took care of the problem. Thanks for you help anyway. Chris

Still nothing has changed. Plus on the video wave screen, the show settings is greyed out. thanks but things still haven't changed.

    Video Wave Problems

    Okay I have used many versions of Roxio and I purchased emc8 about 2 months ago and have had problems since. I have installed, uninstalled, installed, uninstalled many times with the help of many of you. I have gone deleted off of regedit, msconfig, properteries, I have deleted registry keys, everything all of you have suggested. I have also upgraded my video card drivers and still when I go to use videowave (since slideshow assistant is not a favorite of many of yours) I can insert pictures, transitions etc but when I go to preview I do not have the navigational bar under the preview screen. I have run virus software norton, spyware (spybot, adaware, pc bug doctor) Any suggestions that can help me? I have my parents 40th coming up soon and would really like to get a video done for them. Sony vaio p4 2.4 radeon 9550 256mb video card 1.5gb ram 125 mb hard drive windows xp w/ service pak 2

    Videowave Preview

    can someone explain where the controls are to preview a slideshow in VideoWave? I have the slide show done but now I want to preview it and there are no controls for this. no play, pause, stop nothing. I watched the tutorial and it looks like under the preview screen that there is a bar of controls. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you

    Error 1406

    Hey there I am in the process of reinstalling emc8 and i get "installation failure 1406 - Could not write to key .... please check that you have sufficient access to that key" I am running Windows XP. I am the admin on the computer. I have gone through the registry to the exact key that the error states (My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4123e712-5c64-43b8-ac3b-d677c1e36c9e}\ProgID) and "Everyone" is listed as the available users, and it has full permission. Any Help would be great. I would like to use emc8 someday!!

    Slideshow Assistant

    I recently installed emc8 and things seemed to be running fine until I had tried using video wave and found out that I needed to add more memory. So now I had to uninstall emc8 and reinstall. Now if I go to photo and then slideshow, slideshow assistant will not pop up. It just goes back to the photo options page. Any suggestions. Thanks Sony vaio p4 2.4 1.5 mb ram 120hd 256 video card
  12. Okay, first thanks to all who have helped in the past. Here is my current problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled emc8. Now I can open the emc8 home screen but nothing else will open when I click on it. I am run p4 2.4 1.5mb ram, 256 mb video card etc. I know my specs can handle this but why can't I open anything?
