Can't burn a movie


JOHN L.

Question

Just installed Easy Media Creator Suite 9 without any apparent problems. Want to burn movie. Added the movie and previewed it and it looked great. Started burning. After about 2 hours, got the following message: "Failed to start the image writing operation. Error while burning Image. 8000 4003"

 

My computer is a Dell Dimension 8300

Runs XP (updated)

Pentium 3 Ghz w/1.5GB of Ram

Nvidia GeForce FX5200

HP DVD Writer 940d usb device

 

There is no firmware for the Writer and I have rebooted machine after deleting the FX5200 to reload driver. Tried 3 different movies, all with the same result.

 

HELP! What am I doing wrong?

Not sure what the problem is. From looking at a few other posts, it could be video card or burner drive related. Take a look at these posts here and here that I found by searching on 80004003 and see if they help.

 

Ploogs,

You're problem is obviously not the same as JOHN L.'s since you do not get the 80004003 error. Starting your own post would have been a better idea.

 

In any case, you haven't provided any information for us to work with really.

 

"Just nothing happens" means what? It locks up and you can't cancel the process? The progress indicator sits at 0%?

 

Details would be helpful, including your system specs and which app you are using in the suite. I'm guessing it's MyDVD or Videowave.

 

Generic suggestion pending more information: Check for driver updates for your video card from the manufacturer (i.e. Nvidia, ATI, etc NOT thru MS Updates).

 

 

Larry,

I'm using MyDVD. Yes, it locks up, can't cancel, and the progress indicator sits at zero. Same thing happens with MyDVD Express.

 

I'm using Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service PAC 2.

 

Thanks for your help.

The 0% progress points to an issue with your video card drivers. As noted before, start by updating the drivers for it.

I have similar problem, but I get no error message. Just nothing happens when I go to burn. I even left overnight.

 

I have HP Pavillion, Media Center Addition with LITE-ON DVDRE SHW-160H6S

I've updated the drivers. But here's else something I found out. I have Windows Movie Maker and that works fine. Do you think there is a conflict between Roxio and Windows Movie Maker?

As noted, no there is no conflict between those.

 

How did you update your video drivers?

Have you updated directx? If not, do that also.

Also try starting MyDVD thru Start -> Programs -> Roxio... rather than thru the home app

You can also try changing the rendering to Software instead of Hardware (Tools -> Options in MyDVD).
