I feel your frustration! I've been trying to burn the same movie for over 2 weeks and I finally got it burned today! Mine kept hanging at the same point and I FINALLY figured out that it's a glitch in the video that the program didn't like. I went back in & trimmed that glitch out and it finally burned. I did everything I could think of before that and evidentally that was the problem. I hope this might help and good luck!

Cheryl....thx for that.

 

I took a different short piece of raw data video, and managed to create a page file/.iso and burn a CD with no problems. The showed me that my computer was capable of creating a DVD.

 

I then removed ALL the transitions of my video file that has been causing me the problems. This is 14 minutes long and MC9 burned a DVD correctly.

 

I have just now reintroduced the transitions, and the encoding has again frozen at 3 minutes. I have examined frame by frame where the "freeze" has occured and there is an additional frame which momentarily freezes the movie. I have now trimmed this out and the program seems to work. However at eight minutes into the movie the encoding has once again stalled.

 

All this leads me to believe that when using MC9, one needs to be aware that any corruption of the data will lead to encoding problems. This program is not very robust in this respect.

Actually any corruption in any data will cause problems when you try to move it or otherwise use it - and video is really an encoded data stream (it's all 1s and 0s in the end)

 

The problem with video glitches causing the transcoding to fail is well known and it's not just Roxio that suffers from that - all video programs do. It's an unfortunate fact of life

 

All you can do is work through the original clip to see where it fails and try to edit that portion
