This is my first post in the forum. I am an (happy) recent new customer of Roxio, I bought by download and installed successfully MyDVD 10 Premiere (btw, I chose it because it is the winner of a quality/price test in the Computer Bild magazine).
I created my first DVD, a presentation of old scanned photos from an album of my parents, in order to present them with this as a gift :-)
The DVD is a DVD-R of mean quality (not a Verbatim or so). Actually I bought it at the COOP store, it is labeled COOP.
I created it in 16:9, HQ, and masterized it with the minimum speed of 4X. I made in on a HP Pavillon computer with Vista Home Premium, a relatively recent PC.
It works perfectly on:
1) the PC
2) my Philips home theatre
3) another Philips mini-home theater (well, there the menu will not show, the DVD starts from the first presentation)
4) an old combo DVD+VHS player (don't remember the producer)
it does not work well on the brand new Samsung DVD Player that is my target! namely that of my parents!
"not work well" means that the menu appears but it is difficult to change the chapter, and the music and the photos are shown with interruptions. And in one case during the projection the DVD player just stopped to obey to the remote control and to the front panel, and I had to interrupt power to reset it.
Although I read the previous post "problem, problem...", I would like to hear some good hints from the experst between you :-) I am pretty desperate.
Another small thing: I activated the zoom and pan option on the photos, in order to dynamize the presentation: but to my surprise this options "cuts" away a small slice around the photos, a small but important slice for me, because I had superimposed the date and place of the photo, in the lower right border. Almost all of them, although being visible in the original photo, are not visible in the video, due to this clipping. Some Hints?
anyway, the program is good, and relatively complete. I am happy with it and wish to say thankyou because it really revives old photos and brings them to new life!
