error 0x80004005

Question

I am trying to record two vidoes and I am using the movie compilation section of EMC8. When I get to the burn stage I get this message - unspecified error 0x80004005. I have downloaded the patch for this problem with MyDVD encoding the menu problem but it does not seem to work with the compiling section. I assume there should be a patch for the compilation encoding.

Lets try this in steps:

I have some video on VHS tape that I capture using a PVR capture card - Tevion TV7134 WDM - this gives me a file that I can convert to an image file - ISO - which I can burn to a disc using Classic Creator. A single video will burn to a useable disc. These videos are small between 2 and 3 Gb so I was trying to put morfe than one onto a disc using video compilation. I can load the files and set it all up and it starts to process when I get the message - unspecified error 0x80004005. I have tried using ISO file and MPG file without success. rereading the post about this error I see that it refers to the MyDVD menu and not to Compilation videos so I was enquirung to find if there was a different patch for my problem. The burner works well outside the compilation program as I have tried successfully to burn other single videos. Does this make my problem any clearer- I hope. Many thanks for your attention.

You made it somewhat clearer, except more clarification is necessary. Here is why. The size of your files means nothing. It is the length of time of those files that matters. You can get 1 hour of video on a standard DVD at best quality.

 

If you are trying to burn your ISO files to a DVD, try using Disc Copier, instead of Creator Classic. In Disc Copier, you can do a preview of that ISO file to see if it is good. If it does not play, therein lies your problem.

 

Try this first, and let us know what happens.

I little background will help you understand what sort of idiot you are dealing with; I am 72 , retired and trying to put my VHS tapes onto DVD and tro edit out all the rubbish. This invovles short video clips being joined into one long one. I can burn these short clips but iy will take up a lot of discs so I am trying compilation. We seem to have got back to the start with Disc Copier soher is a resume with some of the answers to your questions.

 

I have found using Videowave that the rendering is Software and left it so

I been into disc copier and preview one of the ISO files and it works fine.

I have two clips inserted and tried to burn these but I get the 8000400 error; noting your comments on length of time found these clips totalled 79minutes so I removed one tried again but got the same error message. I do get confused with all the file extensions but I have burnt to disc ISO, MPG amd C2D files - just to see if the burner would do it using RW discs. I assume there is no simple answer to what is error 80004000. I am sorry if the information you are getting os not what is expected but I am titled as a Rookie and I appreciate your patience. Thany ouy.

Being a rookie is no problem at all. If you are rendering in software mode, update the drivers for your video card. What video card do you have?

Right here goes: - The computer is home built using an asrock K7S8XE motherboard, 1GB of ram and an AMD XP2600 processor. The board is unmodified and running at 166Mhz with DDR RAM. It is fitted with XP and SP2. I use AVG, Adaware and Spybot. I will check but I believe I puse Directx9. I shal check for burner updates and will get back later. Many thanks.

Further to the last posting: I have a Pioneer DVD-107D and I went to the Poineer page and downloadeD an update dvd-107 FW. The drive will play commercial videos and will come up with the introductional windows when inserted but when I get into compilation and click burn it just sits there. I tried the drive out using Roxio 6 DVD creato and when I went to burn a video it tells me that there is no drive connected. I am now a little unsure wether this is because I used the new driver or not as I was not aware of this before. Hope this is of some help; once again many thanks.

The Roxio software will not copy commercial movies, because it is illegal to do so.

I guess that I misunderstood that also so I may be confused on the other things. Please let us know exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Please re-read your post because what you are saying is perhaps not what you are actually doing (see bolded text).

 

What is the source of the DVD that you are trying to copy with the compilation? You say they are videos how did you get them on a disc in the first place?

 

This set of programs relies on a communication between your burner and the program so the may still be a problem with that burner. This set of programs does not have a set of drivers for your burner so you burner must communicate properly. Are you running XP SP2 or 2000 SP4 ? Is the burner internal or external? Are you sure that you flashed the drive properly following all the instructions? .

 

Can you burn a cd or any other thing onto a DVD? That would be a better test.

 

Also do this, in Video Wave, go to tools/options and then run the video test. Does the dot stay near software or does it go to hardware? If it is software, do not force it to hardware. This is not usually involved with the compilation but funny things can happen if you force the software rendering to hardware.

 

You misunderstood the commerctalvideo point. In order to test the drive and make sure it worked i use a commercial video so that the recording would be a good one and the compilation was done with my videos which makes me think that the problem is software!!

I will have to dismantle to find out the video card but I think it is an ATI 9200 radion (99%) and the video adapter according to my system information is SIS300ip sys and uses 64 Mb from memory. Not a lot really but this is the first time I have had trouble. I shall check the video card and see if there is an update. I assume you are in America and it is bedtime here so i will get back later on goodnight.

Perhaps another approach would be better. From what you have posted, I don't think that this is what you are doing.

 

First, organize your thoughts about how you want to organize the video clips having in mind that you can get about 2 hours of video on a disc (absolute max). You might want to do it by year, person, something like "vacations", people, sports, etc. whatever fits your thought pattern best.

 

Open Video Wave and drag the first captured clip to the story board. Switch to timeline and edit out those sections you don't want. As you remove parts, the other sections of the video close up. If you go back to Storyline, you will see each section as a different block. You can rearrange the blocks if you need to. If you have another video clip that you want to add to this one because it somehow connects, just drag that video to the storyline. Switch to timeline to do your editing. Save that project.

 

Now, open a new project and do the same as the first. Repeat as necessary.

 

When you have completed your editing, open MyDVD and add new movie. Repeat as desired but remembering that you can get only one hour of best video on a DVD but up to two hours on a DVD at a slightly lessened quality. At this point, you can select each one of those videos and create chapters for easy navigation. When you are completed, go to burn and select burn to iso file (image file). let the project render. Close MyDVD and open disc copier, find that iso file and "copy" it to disc. You will get a warning and a message to fit the iso file one the disc (I don't have anything to get the exact messages). Select that and the iso file will copy. Remember a max of 2 hours but I would suggest you keep it somewhat short of that.

 

If the above is what you are doing, then I apologize. You see, I am also an retiree who grew up without the "pleasures" of a computer. I'm still trying to catch up. :)

Don't dismantle. If you are using XP, right click on my computer and select properties.Click Hardware then device manager, scroll down to display your video information. See example.
