MYdvd stops burning at about 4%


Sol Rosenberg

Question

While trying to burn on my Toshiba satellite a100, which has a Matshita DVD-Ram uj841s burner (for which I used roxanne's instructions to upgrade the driver for the burner) the burn stops in the same place every time and just stays there (see attached screen shot). I've also done the toggle for the dma mode in the device manager. Running Window XP professional service pack 2. Any suggestions?

 

 

btw, the screen specifically says Overall progress 4% ; Current Task: Recording Slideshow 41%

 

It has finished encoding the first slideshow of the movie, then it goes straight to 41% recorded really fast, then it stops forever.

Have you tried burning and .iso file to you hard drive instead and then when it is done you find it on your hard drive, mine is usually in MyVideo file. Double click on it and it will open up in disc copier, burn it to a DVD from there and see if that works.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the suggestion. It did the exact same thing.

That narrows it down to the production rather than a burning problem and to perhaps your computer. I hope you did your production in VideoWave. If so, open the project in Video Wave and select the icon that looks like a film reel. Output (render) that file as an mpg2 best quality for DVD. If the rendering stops, note the time and see what is going on at that time. You should be able to find a problem with an image, transition, mpg file or other.

 

Please give us a little more information about the project. Where did you get the videos, images, music. etc. How long is it? Just post anything else that may be relevant.

 

Did you check to see if your computer meets the minimum specifications for this program? With that processor and that amount of memory, anything you do will be very slow. You need to shut down everything that you don't need to have running including your anti-virus (after disconnecting from the internet), have a lot of free and unfragmented space on your hard drive. Also shut off any power savings features and set your computer to best performance. Do everything and anything you can to make sure your computer works on the video processing only.

I didn't use Videowave but I probably should have? It's a bunch of stills mixed with moving video. Following your suggestion that it might be a problem with the production itself, I deleted the opening credits slideshow (where it kept stopping during the burn) and test burnt it - it worked great! I'll just redo the opening credits now.

 

By the way, as you said, my computer is very slow at doing this. When I am done my first good copy, what is the fastest way to make multiple copies of the dvd? should I just use my one click dvd copy program that I have on my much faster home computer? Or do I have to use something emc8?

Create your production in VideoWave, save it, then take it to MyDVD, make any changes you want to the background picture for the menu and background audio that will play when you put the DVD in your set top DVD player. Then, burn the production to an image file (ISO), instead of directly to a disc. Uncheck the burn to Disc box, and check the burn to image box.

 

Once the ISO is done, open Disc Copier, browse to your ISO file, then burn as many copies as you want, to DVD's.
