MyDVD Stalls during Burn


glowblue

Question

Hi All...I've run into a problem with EMC10. I've read through the forums and tried most of the recommended fixes and I'd like to see if anyone has a solution for my particular problem.

 

Here are my system specs (from Belarc):

HP Pavilion m7470n

AMD 2.2 GHz Athalon 6400 processor (Dual core, 64-bit)

Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2

300.04 GB Usable Hard Drive Capacity; 76.12 GB Free Space

1984 Megabytes Installed Memory

ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series Graphics card with 256 MB

 

I have a production created from VideoWave10 (about 3.7 GB) trying to burn using MyDVD. During repeated burn attempts it stalls (no crash, just stops in its tracks) at about 70%.

 

So far, I've tried the following fixes:

>>Updated ATI driver

>>Updated EMC10

>>I tried a very small project (about 10 min of video) and it rips right through the burn with no problems.

>>I have NOT attempted a uninstall/re-install

 

When the burn on the larger project stalls, VideoWave10 is using about 340MB of RAM, CPU usage is minimal...again, no crash, errors, etc. it simply stalls and I have to forcefully close it (canceling the burn doesn't work).

 

I'm running a hardware encoding, and I've read some fixes that suggest doing a software encode. But it seems my hardware is OK.

 

Any suggestions? I'll try a software encode tonight but any guesses why its hanging?

No, your onboard chip is not up to the task of using hardware rendering for a large burn. Encoding is CPU intensive, but the video GPU is also needed for any rendering during the encoding.

 

Change to software rendering, and try that same production again.

Hi I've tried just about everything on Videowave as well and mine does the same thing hangs at 7% have to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to close the application, I've tried rendering in both software and hardware with the same results, only problem in software is: you will lose mose of your transitions and video effects, so in theiry if you cant use them its pointless having them, I've been trying for weeks to render a production but its pointless, I went out and bought a better graphics board yesterday, but alas still the same problem,, so now I have bought Nero 8 and guess what? it works, not so refine as Roxio, but at least your work is savable to disc, makes you wonder where the problem is in Videowave as there are hundreds complaining, 2 of my mates have binned it because of the aggro.

Folks, thanks for the quick replies and I did finally identify and fix my problem...it was a corrupt production that I created in VideoWave10.

 

I was trying to burn 4 VideoWave productions using MyDVD (from source AVI files), so I individiually output each production to an MPEG-2 format and the offending production stalled at the same point during its rendering using VideoWave10.

 

I rebuilt the offending production, and the total burn to DVD completed successfully (using a hardware render).

 

I supply this hopefully as folks with similar problems will see another potential source of problems is corrupt productions. I am not sure what was corrupted (initially I thought it was the source avi footage, but that wasn't it), but I simply deleted and remade the offending production. What would be nice is for EMC10 to have a "validation" step prior to the long burn/rendering process.

 

Its a very complicated piece of software that in several steps builds up an aggregate of data files, video and audio source files, etc. I can see where a corruption can occur...a simple validation would prevent a lot of headaches!

Pleased to see you have solved your problem, I have made 3 productions now in Videowave 10 and used different settings in both, but alas it still wont render past 7% theres definately a software problem here in this program, so the easiest way is GET NERO, I've had it with Roxio media creator 10 wasted mi money, at least 7 worked, 8 although it had a minor problem Roxio put out a fix but 10 yuck! too much aggro and no go

Good to see that you found the problem and now have a successful production.
