Error 80040207


Campbell39701

Question

Have

 

1) successfully captured video from a DV video camera

2) successfully edited the video I captured

3) when trying to burn to DVD I get, "80040207 Error while encoding movie".

 

I am new to the program and really don't know much about different settings that may help this. I do know that I'm about ready to throw the computer through the wall, and I do know that Roxio's product support seems a little suspect...at best.

That error code refers to encoding the menu. Try it in software rendering, instead of hardware rendering. Also, don't use the icon on your desktop to get into the program. Use the Start/All Applications method.

 

 

I also had this error on my first attempt to create a DVD. Seemed pretty perplexing, because it did preview ok. Software rendering did the trick. Thanks !

Did you update the drivers - and also DirectX 9.0c from MS (the June release is out now)

Let us know your system specs, especially the graphics end of it

 

You could try updating the graphics card from the maker's site to the latest version (be sure to uninstall any existing drivers first and roll back to that horrible 16 colour low res display before installing). Also make sure you have the latest DirectX 9.0c from MS

 

The "switch to software" as opposed to the hardware worked for me, however, I doubt it is because of my graphics card(s). I have 2 7900 GS cards (SLI) and can play the meanest games, but i can't burn a DVD using my hardware with MY DVD 9?

:angry: 80040207 Error while  Encoding Menu

I have the same problem. I have updated my graphics card (gforce FX5600-256 MB). No Luck! i created video in windows movie maker save as DVI-NTSC. Video comes out but no menu. I seen the fix to use software rendering. I am not sure how to do this? please enlighten me.

Here is a puzzler for you. Nothing to do with Roxio though, so I don't know if anyone can assist. My son is trying to install a game, we get the game to install (takes about 3 hours). When we try to apply a patch upgrade, keep getting an error that that the file is corrupt, but after downloading the patch 100 times, there is no way that the file is corrupt. The tech support for the game keeps saying to re-install, do I have done that 10 - 15 times. The puzzler is that the file will fail to apply at diffrent stages, 8%, 17%, 28% and so on. Is it possible that the hard drive is interupting ?

Fitsr of all - did you also update DirectX to 9.0c?

 

Also - software rendering is a component of Videowave (under tools, options) but it won't make any difference to Windows Movie Maker

Ihad the same problem and someone on the board suggested to defragment my disk. That worked. Also I was always able to burn a disk without getting the error and then one day the error started. So I knew it was not due to old drivers which you may have to update if you were never able to burn

Yes I have Directx9c

I did not use videowave because it seems to freeze up and WMM is easyer to use. i do not understand because Roxio6 work fine with WMM but does not have fit to dics option.

According to the Knowledge Base that error is most often solved by updating the firmware for your burner.

My Graphics card as lised is the FX5500, uninstalled all drivers, then downloaded the following

93.71 forceware winxp2k file. Updated and didn't help.

 

Then I downloaded directx 10, perhaps 9.0 as suggested will help

 

Doing the sony firmware now, i'll keep my fingers crossed.

Windows Movie Maker is NOT a burning app in thew same way that MyDVD or VideoWave are - it's a simple capture program and any patches, tips, hints, suggestions here for EMC do NOT apply to that.

That error code refers to encoding the menu. Try it in software rendering, instead of hardware rendering. Also, don't use the icon on your desktop to get into the program. Use the Start/All Applications method.

 

Changing from Hardware rendering to software rendering did the trick. Thanks a bunch! :D
