Dropped frames


photoguy

Question

I've done the following:

1. Decreased DVD burn speed from 16x to 4x

2. Decreased the video rate from 9.0 to 7.0

3. Switched the MyDVD-Temp file location from my system disk to (2) others (with 100+ GBytes of space)

 

The "overall project" and "current" percentages shown during rendering are never more than 1% apart.

 

Out of 165 slide show images, 1-4 drop during the rendering stage. There is no pattern as to when this happens.

 

Does anyone know why these frames are dropping and how to solve the problem? I've spent 2 days on this project and simply don't know where to go from here. Roxio assigned this a Support ID# 2 days ago, but has never provided any other feedback.

 

Out of about 30 separate render/burn cycles, I've got one complete DVD without dropped frames.

I have had the same problem. It seems to drop every other photo from my show. I have sent the issue to Roxio, but still have had no reply. Did you ever get it to work. I need help! Roxio has always worked for me before. But the new software is giving me major headaches.

Actually, Roxio did come through on this one. They recommended restarting my computer with ALL startup files turned to OFF (running sysconfig). The problem went away. I had about 20 of them, including some from Roxio. I gave them a list of all my startups and asked if any were known offenders, and he didn't know. The only way to find out is to turn one one, and then tyry to make the Roxio software break. If it breaks, then that's the bad one you should probably never turn on again. If it's not the bad one, turn another one on and go through that process again (for me, that's up to 20 restarts, etc.). I haven't done that yet. When I need to burn, I just reboot with all startups off and it seems to be OK. I then reboot for normal work.

 

Good luck,

 

Dick
