MyDVD 8- Cannot burn at all!


ProblemChild07

Question

I'm really frustrated, I cannot burn anything to DVD no matter what I try. I've been reading all of the posts and trying out all of the suggested tweaks and nothing seems to resolve my issues.

 

Whenever I go to burn a project, I get about 3% of the encoding before I get a popup from windows that reads "VideoWave 8 has encountered a problem and needs to close". This happens if I try burning direct to disk and if I save the disk image file. I have tried rendering with hardware and software both, same issue each time, and I have more than 100 gigs of free space.

 

My hardware is:

Win XP sp2

P3 1.7 ghz

512 memory

Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440

 

 

Can anyone help me out with a real solution? I tried calling Roxio customer support Friday and they had nothing to offer other than a pay-per-call tech support...

It's hard to say but assuming your drivers are up to date as well as having the latest DirectX installed, I'd say your system is not able to handle what you're doing. I don't recall the minimum specs for EMC8 but I'm pretty sure a P3, 1.7 is near the bottom especially with only 512mb of ram. You have too much going against you I'm afraid.

Your computer is a P4. As far as I know, there were no PIII computers that were more than just over 1 Ghz.

 

You are at the very low end for doing type of work, but you may be able to get it to work, if you updated your drivers, get rid of spyware/malware and possibly viruses. Also, defrag your hard drive.

:lol::P I even wore my expensive glasses and went right by that.

LOL, You can see how frustrated I am... I built the thing and you would think I'd have caught that...

 

I'll make sure everything is up to date and see if that solves anything.

 

Appreciate the advice

Defrag plays a bigger part than people think and it's easy to do. It especially makes a difference when you don't have much RAM.
