Dvd Slideshow Burn Problems


wls47@hotmail.com

Question

I have a Dell laptop Inspiron 8600 that I purchased in Feb 2004. I bought Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 last thursday and installed it. It runs slow but not too bad. It created a really awesome slide show (slides from 1950's with Frankie music in background). I then set about creating a slide show and ran into two problems:

 

First, each time I tried to burn the slide show w/music background, it stops at the same precise place: Overall progress 87%, Current task encoding Menu 43%. I'm using a Fujifilm DVD+R (RW) disc for and data and video.

 

Secondly, when I tried to access digital video on my hard drive from my camera, I got the following message: "There are no media files in this folder that match the filter settings. To change the filter settings, click the filter for media types button."

 

Problem is there is no such button that I could find.

 

Third, I am starting to get the following error message each time I log of my Creator 8 program (that has yet to produce results!). Error message: Videowave8.exe - Application error. The instruction at "0x008fc9b6" referenced memory at "0x06bad850" The memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate program.

 

To summarize: Can't burn a DVD, can't access video files, getting a funny error message when closing.

Would someone please help me with this program. I can't get my money back. I bought it through Amazon. My ram size is 512 I found out.

512 RAM should be enough to do what you need but 1 gb is better and ram is still cheap now.

This is a users forum and not a Roxio customer service site so there's no one here that can even discuss returning your money. You need to call the customer service number listed under 'Customer Service' to the left of this message to discuss that.

I was able to make a small project last night with 16 slides and music track. However, when I tried to tackle the large project I'd created (1.6 gigs), it stopped the DVD burn at overall 90%. If its a question of memory or available RAM, is it possible to change the parameters?

 

Also, how do I get the program to recognize the video taken from my Nikon Coolpix 3200. It says I have to change my filters. How do I do that?

 

Please help. My 83 year old mother is coming to visit next month. I have close to 1000 slides taken from 1948 to 1972 taken by my father on my hard drive and I thought this program would be able to create a DVD I could give to the rest of the family (six brothers and sisters). HELP!!!!

I have the same laptop you do and while I don't use it very often for video work, it does work with no problems. Is is slow? No but not as fast as my desktop. How much RAM do you have?

I would first try a small slideshow with no music. If that works ok, then add music to that slideshow and see if there is a problem. If it's alwasy the same project causing problems, then there is a problem with a picture or transition/effect that is causing it. Start small and first make sure it's not the VW program causing the problem.

As for the error you get when you close, you might try a repair install.

I did the repair install and tried to burn a simple slide show without music. That worked. Then I tried a few more slides and added music. The burn stopped at Overall progress 85%, Encoding menu 73%, then it just stopped. I'm not sure if by RAM you mean memory. There are different configurations of memory. Total physical memory, available physical memory, total virtual memory, available virtual memory, page file space, etc. There is no specific read out for Random Access Memory. (Unless you happen to know how to access that information). I'm using Windows XP. I'm using an X86 Intel processor, family 6, model 9, stepping 5, 1398Mhz. TPM 512mb, APM 147mb, TVM 2gb, AVM 1.9gb; page file space 1.2gb
