Lost Files -- See them, but can't open them!

what format did you save them in? It's possible that the program doesn't recognise the format

 

 

When I saved them, I just clicked "save," and named them. When I checked them later, they had been saved as "dmsm" files, which not a file type listed on the files which I COULD pull up, of course.

 

SO, I went back and tried to "resave" the files, giving them a "dmsp" ending. That didn't work. Do you have suggestions as to how I can salvage these files, or must I go through this entire laborious process all over again, specifying the new files as a supported type?

 

Thanks for helping. Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner; the discussion program wouldn't let me in!

 

Did you move the files or change the names? You can also reboot your computer...this program is very quirky and unstable. Sometimes if something is not working right I just reboot and come back to it later and it works. There are a lot of bugs in this program, I wish Roxio would come up with an update to fix them soon. I feel your pain.

 

 

Thanks, Pam. See post #4; I have tried to move the files and change the names. I may not be going through the correct process to move them, though, so if you have info, send it along! I'll take any help I can get. This is a very difficult program, and I wonder whether my little Dell is capable of handling it sometimes.

 

I have an Inspiron E1705 using Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

with an Intel Cor 2 Duo T7200 (2.00 GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667 MHz FSB

17 inch UltraSharp Wide Screen UXGA w/TrueLife

2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533 MHz

256 MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 HyperMemory

160 GB 5400 RPM SATA Hard Drive

You don't want to move the files.A dmsm file is just a log basically of where the files that you've added to your project reside on your computer.If you move any of the files after making the project then when you try and reopoen it it won't be able to find the files it's looking for.It doesn't matter where you save the dmsm file,it does matter where you save the files that make up the project.

Screech!

 

I worked a long time slicing my DVD into segments. Then I tried to put the segments together. Youch! Now the program claims the files are not there, but I can see them when I click on "file" and "open." What's UP????

:blink:
