Dvd Burn No Audio Help


dino520

Question

Hi guys..newbie alert! Here`s the problem: I copied a dvd-r of home movies with accompanying audio to my computer. This was loaned to me by a friend to copy for my edification. Both the copied files(.vob files) and the original played fine on my computer. I then burned the copied files to a Lightscribe dvd+r disc. The video is fine but the audio is missing. I used the "My DVD 9" program from the Roxio Creator 9 Suite installed on my computer when purchased. This was my first attempt to use this program to burn a DVD. Can someone explain where I went wrong...or how to do it right? Thanks in advance...

CD or Bruce..I downloaded the Lightscribe software. But it`s not going according to the instructions from Lightscribe. Grrrrrr. Given that there is no "Sonic" software remaining on my PC (there was..and I think that`s what I used the first and only time I used Lightscribe) I tried the instructions to create a label with Roxio. I am trying to burn an image on the DVD, but all the options in theRoxio Label Creator "add object" menu are grayed out except scan image. So trying to use the only other option there "edit background" in the Edit Layout menu...the image I selected only appears in the outer circle of the disc. When I`d used Sonic, the entire image burned in the center of the disc. What the he** is going on?

Depends on if you bought the Full Retail version or have some cut down OEM version…

 

Also need to know what program you used as there 35 included in the Suite? So far all you have told us that you drive a GM… Need the specifics.

 

Jim..thanks for responding. I thought I made it clear that these programs were already installed on my computer when I bought it. And the program I used within the suite is MyDVD Basic v9. All I did was use the "add new movie" function in that program and added all the .vob and .ifo files from the folder where I had stored the copied files from the original DVD-R. There are also .bup files in there that this program ignored or doesn`t recognize..or maybe even need. I then burned it to a Lightscribe DVD+R disc. The program has a menu option feature that includes a preselected image background with music. That audio is heard during the preview and normal playback, but as soon as you select the first chapter of your burned movie...the audio is missing.

Update the drivers for your video card. Depending on what menu you have, just click on the text and move it to where you want it.

 

Thanks gramps..finally got the text to drag. Btw...these are "home movies" from Vietnam 1967 with background audio of the music we listened to on Armed Forces Radio while we were there. GOOD MORNING VIETNAM! Copies of this DVD will be distributed to the remaining members of our platoon.

 

Come to think of it..I bet I could find an audio clip of that..would there be any way with this program to open the audio portion of the menu with that famous (infamous) phrase and then transition from that to another audio background (Eve Of Destruction) to run behind the menu? I`d appreciate a "sit rep"...

To make sure this would fix it before laying out any money…

 

Make sure you have your OEM disc for V9.

 

Remove V9 and download and install the full EMC 9 Trial Program. – Here

 

Make sure it works in there!

 

If it does you can search for an old EMC 9 Suite (watch closely for OEM fakes) or purchase EMC 10.

 

Jim (or anyone) I`m about to get back to this project and need to know if it is absolutely necessary to uninstall V9 before installing EMC9 trial version? Is it possible it would work if I installed it on top of V9...as I don`t have an OEM disc for the V9. It came pre-installed on my computer. Please RSVP...

Why don't you just make your own menu with a background of your choice or a video background and add the music you want. Read this; courtesy of ggrussell.

Yes you can use that for the audio of the menu, and transition into another audio. Connect them together in Sound Editor, the export them under a different name. You can then change the menu audio, using the new file you made. There are a couple of things that you have to go through to make the clip to play through, without looping the first 10 seconds. Check out this post, from Tips and Tricks.

Welcome home. Where in Nam were you? I was down in the Mekong Delta.

Ok..here`s an update. I got the image centered. Yaaayyyyy!

 

Only problem is everytime I try to edit the type font the program "stops working". I gotta start all over again from scratch. I can adjust the size of the font..but not the style. Then again I just tried it before I did all the image manipulation I have to do to fit the image on the disc, and it hasn`t shut down yet. Maybe it`s a memory issue? Shouldn`t be as I have 2GBs RAM. Thoughts?

 

And thanks for your indulgence everybody.

Jim..I have no discs at all. The program was pre-installed on the computer when I bought it.

 

So I guess you`re suggesting that the EMC9 suite does support AC3 sound which is apparently an audio codec used on the original DVD I`m trying to copy?

 

But I can`t install the EMC 9 over the Easy Creator Basic v9 on my computer?

Personally, I strongly recommend completely removing any OEM junk before installing!

 

In fact you should follow the Clean Install procedure – Here

 

Since you don't have a disc for your OEM, only you can decide if you want to commit.

 

Your current OEM software isn't going to work so I don't see much point in holding on to a dead battery

 

Jim..I did the uninstall and followed your link and downloaded the EMC9 trial version. It looks like the exact same program I just uninstalled! Maybe there are more functional features than the OEM, and maybe it will recognize the music files when the OEM wouldn`t, but I don`t know yet...I haven`t tried to burn anything ...as I`m trying to do something else with this program and I haven`t been able to get anywhere. I need someone`s advice.

 

Here`s what I`m trying to do. As already mentioned earlier I have downloaded a DVD of home movies to my computer. It includes a chapter menu and background music playing behind the video in each of the 4 chapters. I would like to somehow edit out the original menu and replace it with a jpeg and my own music.

 

I`ve been able to substitute the jpeg for the MyDVD9 optional menu background, and have added music to accompany it. But I`ve had to first choose one of the optional menu backgrounds first..and then replace it with my own image, and then replace the music with my own (as all the MyDVD9 menu options have their own music attached). But in the "storyline" frame number 2 (and sometimes 3) contain the MyDVD9 optional background. So when I preview what I`ve "created" it begins with my image and music but then the original MyDVD9 menu background replaces mine. I tried to delete the image in frame 2..but it won`t allow me to do so.

 

I then added/imported the video and when I preview the whole thing the preview only runs through the menu portion that I "created". So I don`t know whether or not the menu I created would be functional..or just sit there as a static image or what. Or if "my menu" would just transition to the original menu on the original DVD. I hoped by using this program to "create" another menu...that it would automatically replace the original menu. Maybe the only way to find out would be to burn it..but as I couldn`t get the menu right anyway..I haven`t bothered.

 

So the basic question is..can this program be used to edit out the original menu contained in the DVD and replace it as I have described? If so..how the he** do I do that. If not..is there a Roxio program that will do that...or another program besides Roxio???

sknis..thanks. I went to control Panel>Device Manager>Display Adapters. There I found Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce430. I assume (not sure) this is my video card driver? I tried to update it there and it says it`s up to date. Should I still attempt the rest of your suggestion?

 

Just checked..the software dot is already there.

That's your video card I.D. Go to Windows>Start>Run>Type in dxdiag> click OK. Wait until the window opens> select the display tab. On the left you will see the video card information; on the right your video card driver number. If you have XP, the date should be Dec 19, 2007. If it is not, you can update the driver here (link). Carefully follow the instructions.

If you are using 32 bit Vista, then the update is here. It is dated Dec 20, 2007.

 

Also, use the nVidia control panel to set your card's performance to best performance and away from best appearance; and set anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing to software controlled.

Thank you all!

 

First sknis..to answer your question, that`s exactly what I`m trying to do. I`ll read your link too.

 

Bruce..thanks..nice to be here with you all!!! I was in the delta too. 5/60th mech 9th Infantry Div. Base camp @ Binh Phuoc. You must`ve been 9th ID too huh? Small world! What unit?

 

CD..thanks for the link..but I already had it as an mp3. Don`t know if it`s legal to use it or not. I won`t tell if you won`t! 1st Cav huh?

 

PS how do I upload and attach an image here? It`s not working for me. I tried to link to a photo on my Flickr page and it doesn`t like the address.

Cd..did all you suggested. I opened MyDVD9...opened the saved program and clicked on preview. Again, the menu audio only ran for about 30 seconds. So I went back to check and see if the whole "fit audio" thing was in order according to my original settings (212 seconds). As soon as I clicked on the DVD Menu button...it crashed. Sooooooooooooo...I opened the whole thing again...and instead of first previewing...I clicked on the DVD Menu button...it crashed. Twice!

 

I`m beginning to think we`ve got VC in the wire...

As I said in the other thread..I did manage to burn 10 DVDs of my Nam project..after switching the menu audio from what I`d originally set up. I`ve discovered a new issue though. The menu loops, and on the 2nd replay the menu is abbreviated by about 15 seconds..and the Roxio menu background image appears (the changing seasons background)...my audio is still there, but the Roxio image appears for about 10 seconds. This happens every other repeat of the menu loop.

 

Any ideas what`s wrong here? I`d like not to repeat this error.

Take a look at the file structure on the DVD. if it is a standard DVD file structure, the various VOB files would have the video and, I believe the menu would be separate. Just don't use the menu. Am I missing something?

 

Are you working in Video Wave for editing the videos?

 

Your post is slightly confusing. It reads as if you want to make a change to the menu that is already on the DVD.
