Encoding Stops Dead At 97%

Question

New user here.

 

Trying for the first time to burn a dvd consisting of 2 short VideoWave slideshows and 1 mpg movie. I've read through many, many posts here trying to find answers but haven't seen this particular problem addressed.

 

When the encoding process reaches 97% and it's down to just encoding the menu portion, the program stops working. (I've waited an hour or more to be certain I'm not just being impatient.) Using the "cancel" button does nothing. It also locks down my computer, i.e. I can't launch Task Manager, the cursor freezes, etc. so I have to turn the computer off using the power button (ouch!).

 

This is for MyDVD 10 Premier and I'm running Windows Vista (with all updates installed).

My video card is OK

My system defrags once a week automatically

I haven't run a previous version of EMC on this machine.

My project needs only about 60% of a dvd.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

How long in time is your video project?

What are your system specs especially video card (even thoug you say its Ok)? Are you running the altest drivers for that card? The latest DirectX 9c version?

Have you tried setting the render mode to software (tools/option)?

Another possibility is to first burn to an iso image file and then use Video COpy & Convert to burn the iso file to DVD?

Thank you!

 

My bad, though. I assumed my video card was OK but oops... hadn't updated the driver. Once I did, VOILA! the project got all the way through the encoding process. :)

 

Now if I could just get it to burn to a DVD. Not sure if it's my burner or the DVD's I'm using (Fuji DVD-R). One more hurdle to cross.

 

Thanks again for your help!

Have you tried the iso method?

If you mean deselecting "Burn to disc" and using "Save disc image file" (only) then, yes. That part worked just fine. Just can't get the iso to burn to a DVD now... it doesn't like the discs I'm using or there's a problem with my internal burner. Haven't had a chance to troubleshoot that part yet.
