Menu Don't Appear On Dvd

Question

Hi folks, relative newbie here and a couple of you really helped me out about a month ago with an issue. Unfortunately had a computer problem and I'm just now getting back to my project.

 

I created several productions in Videowave. Then went to MyDVD and pulled in the productions. Created a main menu in MyDVD and submenus for several items. When I view the project using preview in MYDVD the menus and submenus appear fine. However, when I burn the project to disc all the menus disappear. For the life of me I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You need to try the burned DVD on several Players as well as your PC. Everything is probably there as the program does not forget to put things like that in…

 

One problem can be media. Verbatim is a good solid brand with rarely a complaint.

 

Some Player (older ones) can be very selective about 'plus' or 'dash' media types. Some like RW media some do not…

I've tried a Toshiba DVD player connected to TV and two players in computers, all with the same result. I've tried the burn process three times now with the same results on this project. Just to test, I created a much smaller production with only a few of the items from my original production and the menus work fine on all three players. Used the same media type as well.

 

I watched the "encoding" process on the original production and it appears to have gone through the process of encoding the menus fine. But, when I plug it into a DVD player it just starts playing the DVD without going to a menu. When I try to pull up a menu, it goes back to the beginning and starts again. Could this be a hardware problem?

So the DVD starts playing the video immediately? After the video finished playing, does the menu come up? If yes to both, you might have added the movie/video in the Intro section of the project.

No once the video plays through it goes back to the beginning & loops through again.

Sounds like a "DVD, no menu" project.

 

Try a short project. Open MyDVD. Then choose File->New project->DVD. Then bring in a title (use a short one if youi have one). Then burn. Post back the result.

I did that last night. Pulled in just a couple of the videowave productions from my original project, then created a main menu and submenu. Everything worked fine on the smaller project.
