Corrupt file fix?


bsam

Question

I have Roxio Creator 8 and was using the create a DVD project. I had the entire movie complete and I was saving and closing the file when I got the videowave error message. Now each time I try to reopen the file I get the videowave error message. Please tell me there's a way to recover the file because I spent several days compiling and editing video to get this movie to look good and fit on a disc. I ran the hotfixes and it didn't help. I rebooted the computer. Anything else?

How about Windows restore if there is one close to where you were working on the project?

 

What error message did you get?

Have you tried to navigate to the dmsm file and right click to open in VideoWave? :D:huh:

 

For your sanity, save the file often using two different file names. Alternate the saves to the two files. That way if you lose one, you have the other one to work with. (Don't you hate the "you should have" ? Sorry) :) BTW, normally the last thing you added was the cause of the problem.

The message was "There was an error with Videowave 8 and the program must close. Sorry for th inconvenience." Or something like that.

 

What is dmsm?

 

I had been saving after every change I made because of previous problems when I try to do too many things at once, but I never saved under a different name.
