    Looping Menu Music

    I've never had this problem before but I had to reload the program. The menu music I added loops in the preview but not on a burned disk. It plays once then stops. Now I'm lost, anybody know what i'm doing wrong? Thanks Frank

    Change Buttons

    HELP HELP HELP Well people here's a good one. I'm an experienced Video Editor and am beside myself here. Using MyDVD 9. I have two computers side by side that I use in my work. Both have MyDVD 9 installed. On one computer that I use to make my menus and burn my DVDs I had a button selection called Brook Text. I totally reloaded the computer using recovery because there were menu problems during playback on the Tabletop player. That did not solve my problem unfortunately. (will not show animated or still buttons on tabletop with more than 6 buttons total betwenn 3 menus) You can see that question under menu problems in this forum. On Fri I bought a high powered video card and upgraded the P/S. No difference. Anyway since I reloaded, the Brook Text button no longer exists for selection. I load MyDVD9 every which way including finding my menu using explorer click on it and let it load MyDVD. Nothing let's me see the Brook Text button selection. Here's the kicker, The button selection exists on the other computer. What am I missing here? I reloaded the program 3 times, same problem. Seems like this version (9) has a lot of quirks. I don't have time for this. Can anyone tell me in the programming files where the buttons exist? Maybe I can copy the file to the other computer, I'm networked. An other question is: Is there a way to obtain other button choices? Thanks Frank

    Does anyone know how to change the mask color in Videowave? Black is boring. Trying to find were the masks live in the programming but have not been successful. If i can find where they are I think i can change them. Any Suggestions. Thanks Frank FranDiVideo

    Change Buttons

    Thanks for the input but here is the basic question: I can't seem to have more than 6 thumbnail buttons totally in a project. ie: 3 0n a main menu, 3 on one submenu and 3 on another submenu, total of 9. tech support says i should be able to have 6 buttons on each menu = 18. The menu doesnt show on the TV off of a burned DVD with the 9 I have. After extensive testing all works when i convert the thumbnail buttons to text buttons. Anyone able to use more than 6 buttons over multi menus? You're right I did upgrade from MyDVD 8 to MyDVD 9, but on another comp I never had any other versions loaded yet the circle with lines appear for some buttons on both comps. Same ones in fact. Also I was missing some buttons on one computer. I copied the button files over from one comp to the other and had all the buttons on both now. But sames ones with the cicle and line still exist. Any ideas???

    To the fellow that questions my knowledge: What are you talking about? Answer what questions? BREVITY is a cost savings technique like not providing a hardcopy of the manual. It has nothing to do with reliability, usability, and/or user friendly programming. I'm asking for an error message listing that is programmed into the program when it's developed. What do you think these error messages appear like magic? There is a specific reason for everyone. What did I do. In 1964 I worked with and programmed Honeywell Mainframes with patch cords. In 1974 I owned the first PC by Radio Shack. No Programs to buy had to develop everything using Basica. In 1984 I worked on the Rolm 1602B used by the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps and used as the prime computers for the Space Shuttle. I not only worked the hardware I wrote the manuals. Anymore questions??????? QUOTE(FranDiVideo @ Oct 5 2007, 02:58 AM) What are you talking about? Answer what questions?

By the way my friend this forum is filled with people having every kind of possible problem you could have with this software. If you are not experiencing any these problems you must be a genius. THEREFORE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO RESOLVE EVERYONE'S PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Every programmer uses error messages this helps during debugging. But in any case what does that have to do with the price of apples. I requested the list from roxio and told the forum I did. Simple as that. I agree this is a help forum which is exactly my point. Why when I post a perfectly good statement that roxio should supply an error list that I should be subjected to abuse by this jame hardin? Then told by him that my credentials are a lie. This guy has a serious problem. we don't need his kind of statements in this forum. If he doesn't like what he reads he shouldn't respond. Perhaps someone should read his responses to other people they aren't too nice.

    Posting system specs may be helpful but I use 9 computers. When i have a problem I try on the other comps. When the problem remains it's obvious it's not hardware. A lot of times I reload the program and the problem goes away. I believe that the software has a lot of glitches. If it didn't 90% of the posts here wouldn't exist. As an experienced programmer the error lists would be helpful to me and perhaps I can pass the info what I find on to others. roxio? They keep ignoring the request. An error message list exists somewhere. They should provide it upon request. As far as our friend James Hardin, he maybe an experienced emc user but he's certainly no help on this forum when he makes disparaging remarks. This is a help desk forum. If he wants to be helpful and part of the solutions he should help people instead of standing with roxio. He should be on my side about getting the error messages and causes from roxio. Instead he questions my knowledge and effectively calles me a liar because I say i want the list.

    For your information I didn't pose a question, I made a statement that I requested an error message list from roxio. It seems like our buddy (James Hardin) had a problem with that and questioned my knowledge of computer programs. He talks like he's an expert and therefore, I question his knowledge. Because he stated that he never has a problem even after loading the program 10 times and he claims to have been a beta tester. So I say to him, you must be genius so therefore, he sholud be able to resolve everyone's problems. Do you understand?

    I developed a movie out of a couple of mpg files plays beautifully in preview and in my DVD preview but wont burn a DVD in MyDVD. Went back to VideoWave and tried to make a movie there. I keep getting an error message "No common media type between these pins". What pins what is it talking about? What happened to the good old days when software manuals had an error code list with descriptions and solutions? Can anyone help??

    Well for your information my friend, I just moved the files over to one of my many video programs and burned 10 copies onto DVD. We need to stick together on this, this software has a lot of problems. I have some of the best video software from Pro-cut to Adobe Premire and none has given me problems like this one. I also have one of the cheapest and best there ever was and that is Nova Video Explosion. They dont sell it anymore but it's the best there ever was for under $60.00. I talking to the company right now about letting me sell and redistribute it. There are two things that I like about VideoWave and that is a larger review screen and some of the 3D transitions. So I also tried making the video on Video Explosion which took me all but 15 minutes to build and render, since I have 3 computers linked, I brought it over to another comp and brought the newly made mpg file from Video Explosion into VideoWave split the scenes and added the 3D transitions and then burned a DVD. I have done a lot of tests (so far 60 hours) on this software and there are all kinds of glitches. Today alone I reloaded the software 3 times. But I don't give up I will figure out the problems and find out why the exist. So be part of the solution if that's your intention in this forum. It certainly is mine. I used and taught enough software problems over the years since 1964 when when I worked on mainframes and this software is not user friendly. My next step is to clear out one comp and only use this program on it so that our so called experts back at roxio cant blame the problems on other software interfering. All programs should have an error message listing. If they did they wouldn't need some of these useless foriegn tech support people. I have 9 comps going and do a great deal of video work so I think I know just a little bit of what i'm doing. You need to be part of the solution not the problem. By-the-way thanks for the feedback.

    What do I have

    I have Roxio MyDVD 9 Studio premier. What is this I downloaded from Roxio store? Deluxe? or what? Too many titles in this software it's very confusing. Do I download the 9.1 update and if so which one?

    What do I have

    Thats what is missing the audio stuff but I have very professional audio software. The capability of making CDs is part of my software also so it seems the difference is the audio. Thanks I wish I could get hold of them. Support and roxanne will not open on two computers for 2 days keeps saying page is unavailable. What next? Thanks Frank
