Videowave 7.5 Stalls When Burning Dual Layer Dvd


cosmoinfurna

Question

When I burn a dual layer DVD+R using Storybook, the DVD writing process stops at step 3 (closing DVD) of 7 steps, at about 20% into step 3. I am making a DVD from home analog movies tranformed into AVI - DVD interleaved type 2 file which I created using Turtle Beach Video Advantage. The Windows Task Manager says that the program is "running". I let this sit for 30 minutes with no further results in the process. The DVD writer green activity light on it's front panel remained off and the DVD is not spinning. I was able to eject the DVD without any reponse from StoryBook. A second look the Windows Task Manager says that the program is still "running". I did notice one thing however, when I went back into the saved StoryB :) ook project that I was trying to burn, I noticed my #1 storyline was empty; Would this cause a problem?

 

I have a Dell 8400, Pentium 4 3.0 Gig processor, 1.0 Gig Ram, Philips DVD 8600 dual layer DVD+R writer.

 

Well, I solved the problem, sort of the easy way. I removed the troublesome Philips DVD writer that came with my Dell computer and I went out in bought a Mad Dog 16X Triple Format internal DVD writer ($49 after $10 rebate) It came with Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 and I was successful in writing a DVD movie from an ISO image file that I made a few days earlier.

 

Thank you all for your response.

That has been happening to me too...But only with Disc Copier. It copies about 30% and then the PC goes through surges of 99% CPU useage to 3% CPU usage and maybe the burn light will flash a few times before the wave appears again. Takes forever just to get 5% progress.

 

This last burn, I saved as an ISO file and burned a single copy from that. When it said the disc was done,

(according to the Burn program), I pop the disc out and it looks incomplete as if some of the disc wasn't written to or sealed.

 

Roxio may be good for video editing, but I am beginning to think there is considerable room for improvement when it comes to burning discs.

Yes. That could cause a problem.

 

Rather than ruining an expensive dual layer DVD, first try burning to an 'image file' which is the option underneath the DVD burner. That will burn to a file on your hard drive and you can then use Disk Copier to burn it to a DVD.

 

If there is something wrong with the storyline, you can find where there is a problem by doing a File\ Output production to... Video file for DVD authoring\ Best in VideoWave. If there is a problem, the render will freeze where there is a problem in the storyline.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi,

 

I did what you suggested (burned to image file). Then, I copied on to the dual layer DVD, it got to 98% compelete when closing the DVD when I got a message "Disk Fixation Error". I tried to see if the DVD would play, but it won't. Any ideas?

Fixation errors are almost always caused by

1: bad media----try a different brand

2: firmware----see if there is an update available for your drive

3: bad drive----could be on the way out. Try cleaning the drive

I was having the same problem in DVD Builder so I sent email to mlpasley asking if there was a way to do troubleshoot the problem in DVD Builder. He was kind enough to promptly respond with the following information on moving DVD Builder to Videowave. I followed his directions and was able to find the glitch on the music track (I was using a very old scratchy song). The information provided to me by mlpasley follows:

 

"It's no bother. Do you have EMC 7 as well as 8? My solution is for version 7 and the "Output to..." function is in VideoWave. Sometimes the program does things it's not supposed to and errors creep in or your computer might have trouble with one of the transitions, sound, etc.

 

Here's how to take the DVD Builder project into VideoWave:

 

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"

 

NOTE: My DVD Builder file was in EMC8 but I followed the directions and found the dmsm file in my temp folder. When I opened it, it opened in EMC8 so I went back and told the file to open using EMC7 and everything worked perfectly. Thanks to mlpasley!!
