Dvd Builder Titles

I cannot add titles to a new menu. I have unistalled IE 7 and WMD 11, and reinstalled EMC 7.5 with update.

 

When attempting to add a title, the titles I have already worked on do not show up in the Collections.

 

If you click on File, then on Open Recent, do any show up?

 

If you browse to the folder, where your projects are, are they still there?

 

Are these projects that you worked on in VideoWave, then took to DVD Builder for authoring and burning, or are they files that you built in MyDVD?

 

You can do a search for .dmsm files, or .dmsd files by clicking on the Start button, then Search. Type in *.dmsm, if done in VideoWave, and *.dmsd, if they are DVD Builder files.

I went back into the DVD Builder project and find that I can add DMSM files but not DMSD files. The ones I am trying to add are DMSD projects completed in MyDVD. I can find these files by looking into files but they are not listed in any of MY COLLECTIONS. When I "Look in DVD Builder Projects" I get only a message "There are no items to show in this view".

 

Is there a way to change dmsd projects to dmsm projects?

No, changing the file extension won't work.

 

You say that you can find the .dmsd files in a folder on your hard drive? When, in DVD Builder, are you browsing to that folder?

 

Without DVD Builder being open, try double clicking on one of those .dmsd files. It should open DVD Builder.

dmsd project files (created by DVD Builder) cannot be added to another dmsd project!

Only dmsm projects (created in Videowave) can be added to a dmsd project as titles.

Videwave should be used to create to video projects. DVD Builder is for adding video and/or dmsm projects as new titles, creating menus and burning.

 

There was a post on a workaround to "convert" a EMC 7.5 DVD Builder project to a Videowave dmsm file. Perhaps some user remembers the method or can find the post.

 

I think I found the thread that shows how to do the conversion in Post #3 in this link

Be sure to follow the instructions exactly for this to work

That was on the old webboards, but I have a saved post, from ml, from way back when. Here it is:

 

This might work, and it might not. It works for me, but other people who have tried this have not been able to get it to work.

 

Open up your DVD Builder project, click on Advanced Edit, now change something (i.e. the duration of a still photo, etc.), click Done. DO NOT CLOSE DVD BUILDER or the file will disappear.

Now do a Windows Start\ Search\ All Files and folders.... search for a dmsm file, under More Advanced options, select - search System folders, Hidden Files, subfolders. Under When was it modified, choose today's date. ( On my computer, the file is in C:\ Documents and Settings\ username\ Local Settings\ Temp.) (username because I have different Win XP User Accounts.)

When Windows Search finds the file, double click on that file and it will open in VideoWave. Do an immediate File\ Save As... and give it a new name. Now your file will be able to be opened in VW in the future.

Hope that helps.

I found the dmsd file when attempting to "Add Media To Project" - browsed to to folder where dmsd files are located under "My Computer". Click on file and then "Add" but nothing happens.

 

Thanks, it looks like I have been confused as to the way the program works. In reading the manual, I thought it said you could add a title to an existing title. So I will back to square one and start over again. I will also try the thread on converting a EMC 7.5 builder project to a Videowave dmsm file. I really appreciate your help.

Thanks for your reply. I will try this tomorrow am as its too late tonite, need my beauty sleep - ha.

What do you mean by adding a title to a title? If you mean adding another video to an existing title in DVD Builder then yes, that can be done. This added video will be added to the end of a selected Title video but it must be a clip in video format such as avi or mpeg. dmsm files when add to a DVD Builder project will always create a new Title on the menu page. When talking video terminology one has to be careful to use the correct terms - titles mean different things to different people. In Roxio a Title always means a video that has a Title entry on the main menu page.

I guess I meant that I was attempting to merge/chain/join my dmsd productions together to come up with a dvd with chapters or several titles (on one dvd). I have accomplished this in the past but evidently forgot how I did it. I can only offer the excuse of a "SENIOR MOMENT" or better known as CRS.

 

Yes, I admit my terminology is not always precise. "TITLES" used in the Roxio EMC 7.5 were confusing to me and I always had trouble in starting a new production and typically started it in DVD Builder rather than Video Wave, but will use Video Wave in the future.

 

I was successful in using the listed procedure for converting a DMSD file to a video wave DMSM file. It will save me a lot of time as I have a total of 3 dmsd productions to change (or convert) to dmsm. Thanks very much for sharing that procedure, and for clearing up my understanding of working in Roxio. I am saving all this info for my future Roxio work. :lol:

Use VideoWave for all of your productions. You will have no problem bringing more than 1 into DVD Builder, for authoring and burning.

I think we're missing a step here.

 

You can NOT add one .dmsd project to another .dmsd project BUT you don't have to start over.

 

- Open one of the .dmsd projects that you want to add to the final project.

 

- Follow the directions above to open the project in VideoWave. It won't take long if you use Windows to search for the .dmsm project because you've done an advance edit and it will show as modified with todays date.

 

- Once the file is open in VideoWave, Output the file as a Video File for DVD Authoring/ Best. That will give you a standalone movie that you can now add to a menu in DVD Builder.

- Repeat for all but one DVD Builder production.

 

- Open that final DVD Builder production and add your standalone movies.

 

It's going to take time for each of those new movies to 'render', but you'll save that time when you do the final 'render' because those movies will not need to be rendered again.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the help. I have converted the dmsd files over to dmsm files and will start combining into one of the dmsd files soon. I still have a bit to learn on this program even tho I have rendered quite a few dvd projects in the past. :)
