Dmsd File Has No Info For Production

Question

I have several projects made with DVD Builder 7 and 7.5 Since creation I have added a drive to my computer which changed the drive letters for some of the content in the projects. I am trying to restore the project but cannot figure out where the content is.

 

I can locate the *.dmsd files but they do not contain the entire project I originally created. I have the menu, but with a different font showing, there is nothing showing in the Production Editor. All images, movies, mp3's are still located in the same folders as originally. I have used Windows disc management to make sure the drive letters and names are the same as originally.

 

I opened the dmsd in notepad to see where the Production Editor info might be located but cannot figure it out.

 

Any ideas?

 

 

Thanks

 

Rick

Are you using any Videowave project files in DVD builder? They have the extension "dmsm".

If you have MS Word installed you can open the dmsd file using Word; it is much easier to read then with Notepad.

 

I don't quite understand what you mean by "Since creation I have added a drive to my computer which changed the drive letters for some of the content in the projects". Adding a new drive should not change existing drive letters but only add a new one. You could also rename any changed drive letters back to what they were before you added the drive.

I'm not sure if I understand your problem completely, but if DVD builder can't find your videos, on the toolbar you can click on TITLE and BROWSE FOR MISSING FILES. Then, in the window it opens, click on SHOW FILES. It will list the files that are missing. You can then use Windows' SEARCH feature to find the files.

 

Once you have found the files with Windows' SEARCH, make a note of where the files were found and go back to DVD Builder. In the CANNOT FIND REQUIRED FILES window, click on BROWSE and browse to the location where Windows found the files and click OK. Do this until DVD builder locates all of the files.
