Hangs @ 53% while encoding


PenguinFreak21

Question

I posted this on another board as well but I thought that I would try this board as well...I'm getting very flustered!

 

I have tried numerous times to burn a dvd of our home movies. It hangs up at 53% during the encoding process. It doesn't matter if I'm trying to burn to a dvd or my hard drive. I am getting very frustrated with this program. I can now see WHY it was rated poorly and I should've listened to the reviewers and purchased a different program.

 

Can anyone PLEASE help me? Thanks in advance!

Did you update your video drivers to the latest from the card maker and also, did you update DirectX9 to the latest from MS?

 

Tell us what program you were using in the suite, and also your system specs (same as my sig at the bottom)

Biker - can you post (preferably to a new thread) just what your system specs are - atm all you've said is 'my car won't run' and there's nothing there to give us a clue why

 

 

I think I've found my problem. I split the video up and I have been able to make one video without any problem. Now the one that I'm trying to make is stopping at the exact same spot as before when I had the video all together--in between the end of one segment and the beginning of the next chapter. So I edited the movie and trimmed some and now its stopping at THAT spot. There's something that the program doesn't like and I can't figure out what it is. I have plenty of room on my dvd as well as time. I have updated all of my drivers & video cards as well as Direct X9. I uninstalled & reinstalled the program. I also changed the transitions between the video shots. Any ideas of what might be going on now since I know that I can make a dvd? Thanks in advance! Cheryl

I've just registered after having this problem with a dual core laptop/7800 go graphics card. After updating all my drivers I still had the problem. What I do now is always convert in videowave before finishing the project in MyDVD - haven't had a problem since, and it's not really an issue, as I have to convert formats anyway.

 

I hope this makes sense, as I'm new to this myself!

 

I think the program is worth persevering with - I've used others which are nothing but bug ridden junk - this isn't, I just needed to find out how to work with it.

I saw one of your other posts last night and saw that as something I needed to do. If you could point me in the right direction I would certainly appreciate it. I can try to tell you what I'm using:

 

Dell Inspiron 9400 Laptop (purchased 5/06)

Dual Processor

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400

 

And I have no idea what else to write here. If you could tell me where to go to update, I would appreciate it. I really want to make this work after investing so much time & effort in to my videos. Thanks!!! Cheryl

Thx for your advice.....tried to convert to MPEG2 for DVD and it still freezes up at 4% !!!

Problem with Dell is that they do not update their drivers, and the normal ATI ones do not work. This means that the drivers you have are the latest supported ones available. Your only option then is to go for 3rd party drivers - which is the situation I am in too.

 

The latest driver that I can find is here:link

You can find the latest directX here:link

 

I hope it works for you - it didn't for me, I just had to change the way I use the program.

The problem with most laptops (I have a Fujitsu myself) is that the graphics memory in most cases isn't really enough to do any rendering work - it may work in software mode as opposed to hardware but I never had the courage to try it on the laptop but do it on the main box instead
