  1. When using Roxio 11 Pro, my files are alphabetized regardless of how I add them to a disk. How can I stop it from doing this.?
  2. I made a slideshow with about 500 pictures and the words "Chapter" and "play" show on every picture. I evidently hit the wrong button somewhere because I have made hundreds of these with no problem. Please help. I am making a 50 yr reunion video for a classmate who has cancer and is dying and I need to get it to him ASAP. He could not attend the reunion. Thanks for any input. The words do not show when I preview the production.
  3. I make the slideshow in Videowave and then output it and convert and burn it in ConvertXtoDVD. The problem was with a setting I changed in ConvertXtoDVD. Thank you for your response. Can I make a no menu slideshow with Videowave?

    Blank Frames

    I appreciate all your input and will try these ideas. I have made hundreds of these slideshows and they are always big files. I've also thought about just deleting those blank panels and adding the missing pictures at the end of the production since the last half did not have blanks. Thanks to everybody for your ideas. I have been without electricity for the last 30 hours or would have answered sooner.

    Blank Frames

    I am making a slideshow and when I started the output, a lot of the pictures in the first half of it are coming up blank. The second half is fine. All the pictures were taken at the same time and edited with the same program. I have had this problem the last few times and went back and replaced those blanks with the same picture but this time when I did that, there were even more blank. I have Roxio Creator 11 Pro. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Blank Frames

    I have made hundreds of these slideshows. The pictures were all taken with the same cameras, all edited in Photosuite and all made exactly the same way. When I preview it, all the pictures show, but when I output, some panels are blank.

    No, we don't. I don't have an unedited copy.

    They weren't tried without being edited. They were all edited the same and there are no blank ones in the last half of a 17 minute slideshow.

    Blank Frames

    I edited them with Photosuite. I have made hundreds of dvds with this and never had this problem. I create my slideshow in Videowave and then output. The last half is missing no pictures.
  10. My tracks used to stay exactly the way I added them on Creator 11 but now it automatically puts them in alphabetical order before it burns, mixing different kinds of music. I've looked at settings but cannot find anyway to stop this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Ok. I always put it about three pictures out and then drag it against the other one. I've made hundreds and never had this problem before. Thanks for the help.
  12. I have almost completed a Halloween slideshow with Videowave. I have everything except adding the music to about the last 1/4 of the pictures. When I try to add it says audio cannot be added at this point. I have made hundreds of slide shows and I am not too close to the last song. Any thoughts?
  13. I clicked on about the third picture to the right of the scrubber or line or whatever it is called.
  14. I did that. I already have eight songs on it and they went on just fine. I tried moving it several different places but all the same, audio cannot be added at this position.
  15. I purchased a video of my son's Toughman competition and I want to get his fights off of it so I do not have to watch the entire thing to see his. I know how to edit audio in Creator 10 by selecting and removing the part I want out. Is there any way to do video the same way? If not, how can I do it?
  16. I like for my songs to stay in the order I add them but now they are being put in alphabetical order when I burn MP3 cds. They did not use to do this. Is there something I can do in the settings to prevent this. It mixes rock and country songs and I prefer them to be separate.

    Mp3S In Photoshow 6

    I made a Photoshow with photoshow 6 and burned it to a disk. One of the songs overlapped and played over for about 15 seconds so I went back to edit the slideshow. I removed all the music, saved the changes and when I tried to add the exact same songs, I get an error message saying this mp3 cannot be used in Photoshow when it was used about an hour earlier in the exact same show. I'm getting the message for every one of the songs I am trying to add and they were all on the original one. For a program that is paid for on a yearly basis, this program is a royal pain. As mentioned in another post, it rearranges all your photos when they are added, should have more stickers than it does and is just hard to keep working. I will not be rebuying it.

    Dvd Slideshow

    I create slideshows with music in Videowave. What is the best file quality to output the video file to get the best playback on a TV? I have been burning it and then converting the file with ConvertXtoDVD. Some of them are MP4, some wma. Which quality is the best of all the ones on the dropdown on Videowave?
  19. I made a production of a family reunion in Videowave and I want to archive the photos so people can print them. Can I do this and if so, how? There used to be a setting on earlier versions but I cannot find this one.

    Photoshow 6

    I have made several productions with this and now when I try to add a song it keeps playing the first 10 seconds of the song over and over instead of playing the entire song. I tried removing the song and re-adding it but it did not help. The handles are not there to move. I hit the save button but it does not ask me if I want to save changes when I close it out. Somebody please help, my uncle's viewing is tonight and they need this video. I have Windows Vista, plenty of space and memory. Like I said, I have made several productions with this, none without a lot of trouble.
  21. I have Easy Media creator 9. It has worked good but after I had to reformat my hard drive, I get an error message when trying to use Videowave. "The following code must be activated (MPEG-2) before using the application. When I click ok it says No permission, bad install. It also hangs up when trying to burn an audio cd. Am I going to have to reinstall the entire program? I like Roxio but am sick of all the error messages. You learn to do something and they change it in the next upgrade. Is there any way to activate without all the trouble of reinstalling?

    Dvd Won't Completely Encode

    I can't really answer your question but was wondering why you made an avi file with the pictures. Why not just put the pictures on separately? I make mine in Videowave and just add the avi files after the pictures so I can end the music at the end of the pictures. It works good for me.

    Photoshow premium

    How can I post a link to my slide shows on My Space or Facebook? When I click on the download and post, it downloads it and tells me to fill out the web page to post it. What web page? I have figured out how to burn them to dvds and save them on my computer but not this. I had a Photoshow bundled with Roxio 10 Pro and then i upgraded to Premium and there may be a conflict somewhere or I am just doing something wrong. Is there any way to copy and paste the link to My Space? I checked download all but when i go to my online account, no shows are there. Please help.
