Movie Export Failed

Question

I'm using PhotoShow Deluxe 4.5.1 Build 1034 with the DVD add-on on Windows XP. I've made a PhotoShow with a lot of pictures, over 400. I was able to burn the show on a DVD but when I tried burn another copy of it today, it finally made to through processing all of the pictures but then when it went to "process audio" step, it said there was a "movie export failed". <_< a real bummer. Any suggestions?

Thanks

PhotoShow allows users to make DVDs over 400 photos at home. However, we recommend that you do not exceed this amount. There are some computers that can burn long shows. However, errors will increase as you approach or pass the 400 limit.

 

Whenever you have failed burn attempt, restart the computer and try again. Also try this:

 

In Windows XP:

 

Please go to the following location on your computer and remove all the files:

 

C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Simple Star\Movie Maker

 

1) Open the 'My Computer' icon

2) Open the C Drive

3) Open the 'Documents and Settings' folder

4) Open the folder with the name of the user that you log onto your computer as

5) Open the 'Application Data' folder

6) Open the 'Simple Star' folder

7) Open the 'Movie Maker' folder

 

NOTE: put the name of your Windows user profile instead of "USER NAME".

 

Then restart the program and try to burn another DVD.

Thank you. I re-tried it last night before your response & it worked. I'll make a point of not having that many pictures on the next show.

I did open the Movie Maker which I wasn't aware that I had. Movies/Shows are a new hobby that I've fallen for :rolleyes: Movie Maker opened with Windows Media Player. I tried to burn a DVD from there but it didn't recognize a blank DVD so I tried a CD. It recognized the CD but it says, "Not possible to burn this list because all of the files have errors or are missing burn rights. To learn more click on icon next to file list" however, there's no icon there.

Its good to hear that you are working through this.

 

It is important to note that there is a program called "Windows Movie Maker" and is distinct from the Movie Maker folder I have mentioned previously. If you follow my instructions above you will gain access to this folder.

Well, a little dense here. The movie maker folder is the one I opened & it started in Wdws Media Player. The other 2 files in there are "last render hash" & "movie_maker_config"

Sorry forgot to add one part to that.

 

You will want to remove all the files in that folder.

 

I have edited that post.
