    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error

    Just ain't my day. Clicked on your link, got nothing. Searched Roxio support for runtime error, got more nothing (search results don't open). I saw another post in "errors and crashes" that talked about uninstalling all occurrences of Micro$oft visual c redistributable and then downloading and installing the latest version. Did that and if it helps, I'll be back with report. BTW I've done a lot of burning video files and this only happened once. The new version of the C redistributable package seems to have solved the problem. MyDVD hasn't crashed since I installed it.

    Render Mode Setting?

    When I export a MPEG file in Videowave, I sometimes get the word "MPEG" instead of the preview of the video in the preview window of the render screen. When this happens, the render process speeds up by 3 or 4 times. I'm wondering if this is some special type of render mode and is there a setting where I can force render to use this mode all the time? Thanks, Jim B.

    Render Mode Setting?

    I generally render as MPEG-2 best quality. Some of the stuff I'm working with is not high quality to begin with. Should I use best quality anyway or is there a way that I can tell if I can use one of the lesser settings so I'm not just creating unnecessarily large files? Jim

    Please Explain

    I have some +RW disks on which I made some recordings. When finished with the recordings, I put the disk back in the recorder and had it erase it. I then looked at the disk using the drive in my computer. There are sub folders and file still on it. when I look at the properties of the disk, it shows 3.46 GB as being used but, when I add up the size of the stuff in the 2 sub folders, I get about 1.07 MB. I am attaching 3 screen shots of what I'm seeing. My question is, when the disk reports to the recorder that 2/3 of it being used, does the recorder compress what I'm trying to record into the 1/3 that's free? If it's not clear what I'm asking please give me a chance to further explain. JIM

    love that global warming. Was just under 78º here in Niagara Falls today!

    If you will read my reply to Brendon's post showing that pic you'll see that's what I did, the subsequent results, and what happened after I put it back in the recorder.

    Please Explain

    No. Just right clicked on the drive and clicked on erase disk.
  8. Can I burn more than 1 iso file to a DVD disk? I have 10 of them and would like to burn them 2 per disk. This would give me about 2 hours of video on a disk. Would appreciate any help. Thanks, Jim B.

    Please Explain

    I erased the disk using the drive on my computer and got the properties as shown in you screen shot. I put the disk in the recorder and the first thing it asked me to do was erase the disk which I did. after that the empty space screen showed on the TV screen as with a new disk. I put the disk back in my computer and the properties were the same as in my original post above. Must be the way the video recorder handles the format. BTW the file system on my disk is UDF after the recorder is done with it whereas, there is none shown on your screen shot. I'm going to see what Toshiba has to say about this. Thanks, Jim

    Burning Multiple Iso Files

    Heard of JVC, not the other two. Haven't even seen them on the shelves around here. I use Verbatim media.

    Burning Multiple Iso Files

    You're right I wasn't clear about what I was trying to do that's why I asked the question. I cranked up videowave, opened the episode 1 mpg file and added the episode 2 mpg file at the end of 1. I burnt that to a disk and was satisfied with the results. The videos are of grainy, black and white films taken during the first world war. A little compression doesn't really matter. Jim

    Burning Multiple Iso Files

    I guess no was the answer I was looking for. It'll save me a lot of time. I'll try something similar to what you suggest and get back. Jim

    Computer Sleep

    Why is it that when I'm running Creator 12, My computer will not enter the sleep mode?

    Computer Sleep

    Just a thought.... Maybe VW, My DVD, etc. doesn't allow the computer to sleep because that might screw up a lengthy render operation

    Computer Sleep

    Sorry, a little dense here. Could you explain what you mean by "lock your PC"?

    Computer Sleep

    Like when I'm in the middle of a project and get a phone call or go for lunch. Something like that.

    Computer Sleep

    What bios settings should I check? Mouse and keyboard are wired. I don't allow windows to update automatically and , when I update manually, I don't do "security" updates. Sleep mode works fine when I close C12.

    Computer Sleep

    Not while running it. While away from the computer for a long period of time, or overnight, and 12 is minimized.
  19. After I use the capture/import function in videowave, I have a thumbnail of the file in a window called "media selector". Can I transfer that file from the media selector window directly into video wave? Thanks, Jim B

    Capture/import Question

    As usual, Thanks. Stupid me...trying to drag it into the preview screen!

    Splitting A Video

    Thanks. The full length video contains two episodes but they're out of order. By splitting it and burning the two halves to separate video files, I can put them in order. I've been using the method you suggest and it's been working fine. My problem was figuring out how to do it.

    Splitting A Video

    I have a production in video wave that I want to split into two separate productions. Exactly how do I do that? I'm going to need step by step instructions please. Thanks, Jim B.

    Splitting A Video

    Thanks. I've got it now they're called segments and I can't collect a group of them and burn that group to a video file. Let me ask this. can I split a video in half (creating two segments) and burn only one of them to a file?

    Splitting A Video

    I'll try to explain my use of the term tracks. My process is as follows: 1. Import the recording. 2. Open it in videowave. 3. split the timeline view at the beginning and end of each commercial. 4. delete the the part that contains the commercial and so on to the end of the recording. After I edit the recording and remove the commercials, it is split into a number of separate panels or scenes, (If I click on one of them and then click "internal tracks", I get a view of that track (Roxio's term). Hence my use of the word track. My bottom line question is, can I select a group of them and burn that group as an ISO file?

    Splitting A Video

    Thanks for the quick reply I hope what follows is not too murky. The TV program I recorded contains two episodes, 5 and 8. I have other recordings of the same program which have episodes that are out of order. I want to separate the episodes so I can burn them to DVD's in order. I have exported the video I want to split to a video file. So far, I have deleted the one episode and saved it as a new DMSM file then did the same with the other episode. I surmise that, in order for the DMSM files to work, there must be an exported video file for them to refer to. I was hoping there was a way to select the tracks that make up one of the episodes and export them as a ISO file to burn to a DVD later. I'd like to bypass the lengthy process of exporting a video and going through the process I described above Jim
