Problems converting old DVD Slide Shows to video W/ NTX7

Question

I have old DVD's that have Slide Shows and Videos that were either created with MyDVD 06 or Creator 2012. I have no problems with the Video files, BUT the Slide Shows hang up transitioning from picture to picture, splitting them in half. On later DVD's where I used NTX3 they convert OK?

Is that when you play the DVD's on a DVD Drive?

Have you tried copying the DVD with Explorer to your hard drive?

When I open the old DVD (.DVD) with VLC the Slide Show images freeze and just plays the music (Video plays OK).

When I VIEW the files in NTX7 the clip plays OK. But when I play back the converted video each frame is split in half with the next picture.

I suspect your old DVD's have read errors causing the problem.

Please answer this question, have you tried copying the DVD with Explorer to your hard drive, does it copy?

Yes I copied the folders from the DVD to a folder on my desktop. It still does the same thing with all old (pre ntx3)slide shows. 
The videos convert with no problems.

Yes  Just tried a few in our BlueRay DVD player.

Do the problem DVDs have a Video_TS folder? Does that folder have files with the extension ifo, bup and vob?

Exactly what are you trying to do and what steps are you doing?

Yes   All DVD's have the Video_TS folder with ifo, bup, vob extensions. BUT the DVDs that have slideshows that lock up also have a folder called Slideshow.

As you can see from above I have used several Sonic/Roxio products that might be the issue. Also wondering if it is a Window 10 / QuickTime is the issue?????

 

I am trying to get away from DVDs and go to Video streaming so I want to convert my old DVDs.

Sounds to me like the slideshow DVD's have unrecoverable read errors.

There isn't a fix for that.

What is contained in the folder "Slideshows"?  Where did it come from?

Does the Video_TS folder play correctly?

The SlideShow Folder on the DVDs contain the .jpg files.

The DVDs in question were created with old Sonic Software RecordNow7 or MyDVD06 (Year 2003 or 2004). The back-up files on the hard drive are very different from Creator and NXT. All DVDs play fine on our TV's DVD which I thought would make this easy. So at this point I am going to let it go because I am assuming the source files are incompatible.

Then the DVD's wouldn't have read errors!

Something else is at play here.

Try copying a slideshow DVD to another blank DVD (copy disc program) and does it play OK?

Copy the  VTS_01_?.vob files to a new folder.

Change all the vob extensions to mpg. Does each file play correctly?

Now, add each mpg file  in Videowave (in the correct sequence). Can you now create a new video file  correctly?

 

Exactly what are you playing when you get the "split" images. Of course NXT does not recognize the "Slideshow" folder as playable.

Don't know is this closer or weirder to a solution.

Copied the DVD folders and renamed the VTS_02_1.VOB (which is the SlideShow file) to VTS_02_1.mpg

The file then plays OK with Windows Media but still locks up with VLC player.

 

When I tried bringing in the file into VideoWave the file still has the split screen when transitioning to the next picture.

I then brought the same file into MyDvd .  When I viewed the file on the left it played fine. When I played back the file on the top right the transitions locked up with the split images?

At this point if I could change the video to 4:3 I could stream the files to my TV.

For some reason Windows is set up by default to hide the file extensions that it knows about. This way, "letter.doc" shows as just "letter". This is nice if you want a tidy display, but makes it hard for you to tell if "letter" is a .DOC file, or a .TXT file or even an .EXE file which will execute when you click on it. This setting also makes it impossible to change the extension which has been hidden. If you renamed "letter" above to "letter.txt" it would look like what you wanted, but it would really be "letter.txt.doc" which wouldn't help you.


If you need to rename VOB files into MPG to import them, here is what you should do.

-Make a new folder on your hard drive, and in Windows copy the VOB files to that new folder.
-To make the extensions visible, open the folder and go to the tool bar, Tools / Folder Options / View.
-in the box which opens is a setting "Hide Extensions For Known File Types". Uncheck this, and click Apply and OK.
-if you intend to do this again, click on the "Apply to All Folders" button to set and forget it.

Now rename the large vob files, example 1.mpg, 2.mpg and so on. Make sure they're in the form (filename.mpg) as the dot or period before mpg is a must! As soon as you complete the renaming, Windows should see them as Movie File (mpeg) and they should import properly.

The problem is not with the extension but VOB files themselves (I'm guessing) . The problem DVDs were created with old Sonic MYDVD06 and RecordNow7.

ALL DVD's play on my TV DVD, but the OLD DVD's won't play on my computer w/ VLC software. When I rename the old VOB files to .mpg I can play them perfecting with Windows Media Player. The files have a problem in VideoWave , but as you can see from my last post they can only be displayed in MYDVD.

Right now I can cast ALL video files to my FireTV which is what I wanted to do. So technically I am satisfied at this point.

 

If I could find another software to convert the renamed files to a true .mpg I might be able to edit or update them in VideoWave?

You need to look at your setting like I outlined above, "Hide Extensions For Known File Types". Uncheck this, and click Apply and OK.

If so rename them correctly.

We then have options to run them through 'Any Video Convertor' that has fixed non-compliant video files for myself and several others.
