Audio issues

Question

In Roxio mydvd 9, I get perfect audio in the preview pane but when I burn to dvd, no audio. Strangely, the audio that comes with the menu does play, then when i start my movie, silence. I am using a .wma music file. The audio is set to Dolby digital on the Project Settings. Any ideas? thanks very much, Kris

Hi Kris,

 

Way back when I started using EMC 7, I had similar problems as you are having when I used wma audio files for background music. I started using only wav files and I have had no problems since using Versions 7, 8, and 9. I know it is suppose to work with wma files, but those files give some users problems. Try converting the files to wav using Sound Editor and see if that makes a difference.

 

Sorry I could not have been of more help with the wma files, but I never did figure out what the problem was for me so I just started using wav.

Merv, this did not work for me, but I did find a workaround. My movie was a slideshow that I made in Windows Movie Maker. I added the music in that program, saved as .avi and then burned the movie with roxio 9 with no background audio. It worked, but I would like to be able to use the audio features in roxio, so I haven't totally solved the problem. Thanks anyway!

I have this same exact problem. I add in an AVI straight out of Windows Movie Maker (with no audio) and then add the sound track within Roxio. During preview, the sound works great. But once it's burned and I try to play back the DVD, nothing. I get audio on the MENU, but not on the actual video track.

 

Maybe we can work out what the similarities are on our two computers. Let's see...

 

1) Did you install the 2nd CD (the "content disc"?) for Roxio?

2) Have you ever previously had NERO installed on your system?

3) What make and model sound card do you use?

4) What version of Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player do you use?

5) What version of Windows?

6) Do you use Microsoft Office? If so, what version?

Ok, I just figured out the fix for my NO AUDIO problem when playing back a DVD.

 

Here's a brief scenario of what I WAS doing:

 

1. Create a movie with sound in Windows Movie Maker

2. Add this movie to a MyDVD session

3. EDIT the movie again WITHIN MyDVD

4. Turn down the volume of the NATIVE AUDIO track and ADD ANOTHER AUDIO TRACK

 

When I burned my DVD with the above method, I'd get NO AUDIO on DVD playback.

 

 

THE FIX:

 

Instead of TURNING DOWN THE NATIVE AUDIO, there is an option if you RIGHT CLICK on the main video file to show you different audio tracks. Tell it to show you the NATIVE AUDIO track. Then you'll see it on the bar just below the video.

 

Now RIGHT CLICK the NATIVE AUDIO track and MUTE the sound (it's an option!). Now you've got free access to add an external sound source.

 

Once I burned this to my DVD, it worked great! I didn't even have to mess with the audio settings under PROJECT SETTINGS. (Those settings should work fine with any audio option).

after some trial and error found that if I changed the settings to- uncheque fit to disk then cheque custom

and LCPM

That it for me hope it works you and others
