blank slide after DVD burn in MyDVD8


marie k

Question

I have created a project in MyDVD8 that contains 5 movies -- a slideshow (created in CineMagic Movie from jpg files,) plus 4 files imported from my Digital8 video camera and edited in MyDVD8. The entire project previews perfectly in MyDVD8. However, when I burn to a DVD, one or two of the slides from the slideshow appear as black slides in the final DVD where a view of a jpeg should be. I burned the project 8 times, and only one of the 8 DVD's came out correctly. Audio has perfect flow in all 8 burned DVD's. This is the 1st time that I’ve tried to combine a slide show w/ video movies on the same DVD. The size of the finished DVD is 4.1 GB on a 4.7 GB DVD. Any suggestions to correct "missing jpeg view" problem that occurs when the DVD "burns"? Thank you!

This is a rather common problem if you burned the project directly to a DVD. It is probably caused by hardware issues rather than software. It is usually cured by burning your project to an ISO file. An ISO file is an image of what will be on the DVD.

 

In MyDVD, after you have done all your editing and menu set-up, select burn and then un-check all the options except check the create ISO file. Name the file and set the location where to you want it to be saved. Let the project encode. When it is completed, use Disc Copier to copy that ISO file to the DVD. Also try copying that ISO file to a disc at a speed lower than the max.

 

This two step process separates the encoding process from the burning process so your computer only has to do one thing at a time.

 

If you still have some issues, in Video Wave, where you should be creating the slide show and also editing those video files, output that slide show to an mpg2 for DVD ..best Quality. Use that when you add the slide show to the project. The when you go to burn to the ISO file, switch to software rendering. In MyDVD, go to the top menu; select tools , options and put the dot next to software if it is near hardware.

 

Comment: MyDVD is the application you want to use to created your menus and do the burning to a compliant file. The problem is that it has limited options for going back and editing some of the project files. For instance, slide shows in MyDVD are done in a two step slide show assistant. If you go back and try editing those file, there may be some limitations.

 

Really Video Wave is the program designed to do the project creation including slide shows and editing video files. This program will allow you to edit those saved project files easily. You used Cine Magic to do the slide shows; that's OK but your should do you final editing in Video Wave.
