  1. The plan is to create a video file, put it on a thumb drive, plug it into your TV, and then you want it to play it repeatedly? That will be dependent on your TV and it's playback options, not on the video file you're creating. So, you could create a small test file, put it on your thumb drive, then see what options your TV gives you before doing the entire production.

    Toast 7 Disk (Spanned): How To Restore In Yosemite

    notations21, are you getting this message on a PC, or on a Mac computer? Looking at the original post, it looks like Toast 7 might be what you need? If so, check ebay. I just did a quick search there and had several hits for sellers with Toast 7 for sale.

    Videowave Slideshow Export To Avchd Not Smooth

    Let me ask a few more questions. When you're watching the slideshow, and seeing the choppiness, is that in a preview window or VideoWave, or MyDVD, or is this after you've actually burned it to a disc, and you're watching it playback on a Blu-Ray player? Are you first writing your output to either a folder set, or a .ISO file? Or are you outputting directly to a disc? Writing to a folder set or .ISO file is preferred to separate the rendering process from the disc writing process. Let us know!

    All Software Patches Pre Sp2.0

    Jim, I'm pretty sure the PS3 HDCP couldn't be turned off. It was the PS4 that got a patch to allow HDCP encoding to be disabled.
  5. PKD, you'll find that almost all programs install at least some things on the boot drive, regardless of where you tell them to install. There's just no way to get around it, and you have to make allowances with the size of your drive. I also have a different "Apps" drive (D: ) to install to, but the boot drive (G: in my case) keeps growing with bits and pieces. Videowave and MyDVD are indeed intertwined and need each other. Well, at least MyDVD needs Videowave. Depending on which services you stopped, and where they were installed, you can try restarting some of them to see if maybe you didn't delete the pieces they need, and you can get Videowave and MyDVD going again. Failing that, you're probably going to have to reinstall and leave Roxio Burn and Back On Track installed. (Though you should be able to stop the services for at least BOT, and I think you can stop the service that notifies Roxio Burn when a new disc is installed.)

    Roxio Video Capture Help

    I suspect, as with the PC version, there's no way to re-size the preview screens.

    How Do I Get Email Notifications Of Replies To Posts?

    I'm guessing that (creating a new account) won't help at this point. As you probably read, cdanteek changed his settings to try to turn notifications back on, and hasn't had success. So, there seems to be an issue with the boards themselves.

    I've gotten notification of everything since I posted my first reply.

    Software Says Not Responding Every Time

    So, your second system seems like it should at least give you something. What did you see when you tried it? What error message(s)?
  10. Tell us about your setup. What game console are you running? Are you sure the three video cables from your console (Red, Green, and Blue) are going into the Input side of the Game Capture device, and not the Output side? (Please double check, don't just say, "Yes" without looking.) Are you getting a video signal on your TV? Are you getting an error message on the the console screen of the capture PC? If so, what is it?

    To take a cue from Brendon, How's this?

    How Do I Get Email Notifications Of Replies To Posts?

    If you're still not receiving e-mail notifications, check your spam folder, to see if your ISP or e-mail client is binning them. And also go into your settings here and verify there are no typos in the e-mail address you have set.

    Toast Burned Dvd Won't Play On Dvd Player

    When you say, "DVD file", what exactly does that mean? What is the name and extension of what you've created? Does it include a folder that's named, "Video_TS"? A playable DVD disc is not just a "file," it is a very specific folder structure with specific file types. You can't just throw a video file onto a DVD disc, and expect it to play in a set-top player. You have to Author the disc properly. I'm not a Toast/MAC user so I can't help you with any specifics. You'll need to find the part of Toast that says, (to this effect): "Create a playable DVD disc" and follow the steps it leads you through, which should include, adding the video file I suspect you created.
  14. Typically, "previous" versions (C2012) are unaware of "later" versions (NXT) and will often just install with or over them. But, to be safe, yes, uninstalling NXT would probably be a good choice.

    Reset Roxio Creator Nxt 4 Product Key

    The first question would be, why have you had to install/reinstall so many times? Is there something we can help you with to help keep that from happening? To answer your question, there's a link in my signature below about getting your key reset. Try that, if you have any troubles with that, let us know.
  16. You seem to have ignored the last half of the last sentence: "...and make sure it comes with a working CD Key for it!" You're correct, you need a key that can be registered, so make sure you get one.
  17. Jarman1, I've sent you a Private Message. Go to the top of this page, and you find a icon that looks like an envelope, and that should have a number in it, indicating you have a message waiting. Click on that please, and respond appropriately. Thanks!

    Video Signal Lost, Audio Is Fine

    Is your computer a laptop, or a desktop? Your issue sounds potentially like a USB power problem. If you have a laptop, make sure you're connected to an outlet, don't run on battery power. Check your system settings to see if there are power option settings for your USB ports, and if so, make sure they're set to the highest setting. Try all of your USB ports. Different ports can behave differently. If you have a desktop, make sure you're connecting to a USB port on the rear of the PC, not one on the front. As with a laptop, try all of your ports. Also, post your computers actual specs. "...pretty new computer that meets the technical requirements" doesn't actually tell us anything. Let us know how you make out.

    Creator 2011 Capture Video

    outerbank, do you happen to run a registry cleaner on your system? If so, try turning it off, do a repair, then leave the registry cleaner off for awhile and see if your problem goes away. Registry cleaners and Roxio have not worked well together in the past. I don't recall if Creator 2011 had that problem or not, but it's worth checking.
  20. 1 hour is about the limit for a single layer DVD. For your 1 hour and 33 minutes, you'll want to go to a dual layer DVD so you can maintain the highest quality. I actually haven't played with the new MyDVD that comes with NXT 4, but it is a much reduced version from what used to be included. You're probably doing what now needs to be done when you "pre-combine" your videos before putting them into MyDVD. I'm sure someone else will jump in here who has familiarity with the new MyDVD.

    Blu Ray Disc Burn Playback Issues On Ps4

    The only thing that strikes me, looking at the image in your original post, is the video resolution. I wonder if the PS4 would prefer 1920x1080 instead of 1280x720? Just a thought.

    Blu Ray Disc Burn Playback Issues On Ps4

    I gotta agree with theoldarchiver. You've pretty much proven that your BR discs are mastered okay if they play on everything except a PS4.

    The Boards Were Broken

    For those who are unable to login here, there is an issue, as you've no doubt noticed. Invision, (the folks who actually maintain the servers these boards run on) has been contacted, so hopefully the problem will be resolved soon. If you have logged in recently, and have a valid cookie in your browser, you can still get access. Until then...

    Burned Data Disk Instead Of Dvd

    Right, you can't "convert" the existing disc, but you can use the files that are on the disc to create a new, playable disc, using one of the methods mentioned above.

    Burned Data Disk Instead Of Dvd

    If you're asking if there's a way to take your existing Data DVD discs, and convert that existing disc to a video DVD disc, the answer would be no. Though I would also ask, what are the file types and folder structure on the discs you have? As CD said above, you need to use the "My DVD" application in Creator to master your DVD Video disc.
