Encoding Stops At Dvd Menu Encoding

Question

Using the NEC ND 6650A with Dell Inspiron 510M, encoding a DVD project reaches the stage where the menu should be encoded and then stops and hangs. The software is Roxio 8.

The same software on my Dimesion 8400 with the Philips DVD8601 encodes and burns with no problem. The Dell firmware for the 6650A is version 102C. There does not appear to be a newer Dell OEM version.

 

Advice eagerly awaited.

Burn to an image file (ISO) first, then burn to a DVD using Disc Copier. See if that makes a difference.

Thank you for the reply.

I have tried burning to an image file. Again the encoding stops after the movie has been encoded so the menu is not encoded. The cpu was operating at 100% during the movie encoding and fell to zero at the end. I take this to mean that the programme stopped. Roxio 8 has been uninstalled and reinstalled.

Have you tried this hotfix that's posted in the DVD & Video area? It may help.

I have tried the hotfix - please note that I never got the error message referred to. The result of applying the hotfix was that the menu screen image failed to load in DVD Creator and when I tried to load a project the program crashed with a runtime error. I restored back to remove this problem.

 

More suggestions please.

There may be something wrong with the file that you are trying to burn to ISO. You will have to determine if that is the case, though. Does you project preview ok in VideoWave or MyDVD?

The file encodes fine on my Dimension 8400 using Roxio8 and previews on both computers on Videowave etc. so it's just a problem on the Inspiron510m.

Well, that is a pain. Is there possibly any other software on the Inspiron that is not playing nicely with EMC 8?

What are the specs on that Dell Inspiron 510? A google search shows it to have only a 1.5Ghz CPU which is propably not good enough to do any video work.

To Grandpa Bruce (and I too will be a Grandpa by Sept): I don't know of any conflicts. I had to remove Sonic software when I installed Roxio 7 to ensure Roxio ran, but as they are now the same company I would have expected them to have resolved conflicts.

 

To Myguggi: The CPU runs at 100% during the initial encoding but drops to zero when the menu is due to be encoded. If the CPU was inadequate, I would have expected the system to freeze with the CPU at 100% not at zero, or am reading the situation wrongly?
