The bummer part is that I think I have to re-do my slideshow. I haven't found a way to save it separately from where it is in MYDVD. I spent quite a bit of time putting it together :)

Did you use the three-step slideshow wizard? If so, there is a provision to further edit the slideshow in Videowave. If you're able to switch to Videowave from within the slideshow wizard then you can save it as a Videowave production. You can now bring in that production in MyDVD as a title/movie (of course select DVD as your project in MyDVD).

80170041 Error while  Creating VCD

 

I get the above error when trying to create a vcd using mydvd9

 

Sorry, I am new to this software. I start up Easy Media Creater 9, then I select Video, then select "Create DVD with MYDVD 9". I start a new project and tell it I want a VCD .... load my slideshow, select my music. Press "BURN" ... it goes through and encodes, then tells me its creating the VCD, hangs, then finally gives me the error.

 

My system config is as follows

Video card is NVIDIA GEFORCE 4 MX 420. I updated the drivers today, but that didn't help the problem

 

Thanks.

It may be that it's too large for VCD - I know that DVD will take one hour video so the limit for VCD could be a lot lower

 

The limit for a SVCD is about 20 minutes so the VCD should be OK with a 20 minute slide show.

 

Where did the slide show come from and in what format? If it is a VideoWave project, go back to VideoWave, load the project and then output it to mpg2 for DVD best quality. If it hangs, there is something wrong with the project (bad transition, bad timing, bad music file). If it encodes, add that to the MyDVD menu. I think you have the options to burn to an image file (c2d?). If so, do that and then copy the file to the CD. I wasn't able to select burn to file. I don't know why.

 

The question is why do you want to burn to a VCD; the resolution will be very bad (mpg-1) and my not play on a lot of set top players.

The program tells me that I can put up to 703 mb on the cd.

 

I appologize if I'm asking the wrong questions or doing the wrong things, I'm very new to this. The reason I'm trying to make a VCD is to be able to show a slide show on my television at my son's first birthday party. I just followed the wizards in the software, which got me to where I am now.

 

Is there a better way to come up with something I can play on my set-top DVD to show this slideshow?

 

Thank you all very much for your input.

I edit my post above since I didn't expect you to post back so quickly.

 

Just burn the slide show to a DVD. Check that your player will play plus R or minus R or both. :)

 

Yes, you can put that much on a VCD or SVCD but until you are sure that your DVD player will play that type of disc, you are taking a chance. Blank DVDs are not that expensive so you'll save more than that price difference between CD and DVD in just the hassle and time expense. :D

 

When you have more time, learn about the programs that are listed on the Applications home page and forget about the Wizards, Assistants and Lite versions. :huh:

 

When he gets older, tell him about your experience and that we hope he had a Happy Birthday from all your friends on the Roxio boards. :D
