Error: Updating Menu


kenjbaker

Question

I'm using EMC 7 with LACIE D2 DVD burner and Verbatim 16x DVD-R media. I have successfully burned a few DVDs with this setup. But today when I tried to burn a new DVD I received the error "Error: updating menu 5 of 5". It gave an error code of 0x80046009116. I did an google search on this error and found that someone last year had a similar problem resolved on the forum here. However, I can't find the thread here in the forum that details how it was resolved. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction as to what might be causing this and how to resolve it?

Did you try and reburn the DVD?

 

Also see if you have the latest Roxio 7 or 7.5 updates installed.

Interesting. I too get the same error message as George Stilley, "Error in updating menu 16 of 16 (Menu writing phase) Error code 0x80004005 118. Current operation finished with errors." I can only echo his cry of, "What's going on?" It sounds like much more than an isolated problem.

 

Project consisted of 14 titles (none longer than 30 minutes). Total time 3hr 15min.

EMC 7.1.1.189 ENU

Win XP HE with SP2

Intel Pentium 4, 1.7GHz

512 MB RAM

NVIDIA GeFORCE 2 MX

Hardware acceleration reduced to 1 notch from none, as revommended by Roxio

At best quality, you can only get 2 hours on a DVD. Burn the project to an iso file and then copy that iso file to a disc. When the copier opens, select fit to disc. My suggestion is to waste the 60 cents by splitting the project to two or more discs.

 

Is that a Pentium 4M ? If not, you are stressing that cpu pretty hard.

I did burn to ISO. However, when I tried to set it to "Fit to disk" before burning to ISO, it said that, even at the lowest quality, it couldn't be done, but I said Yes to "Go Ahead Anyway". Some of the titles are there because, I am able to see them and try them out on the resulting ISO file in Disk Copy. Disk Copy also seems to be able to copy them (I haven't had time to do this in full yet).

 

Re Pentium and Pentium 4M, I don't know; I didn't even know that there was a 4M!

 

Now, the interesting thing is that the original was on a VHS tape that I then copied to my DVD recorder. Using the DVD recorder, I had no problem dubbing the 3 hr 15 min of material onto a DVD-R disk. This DVD played perfectly in another DVD player. If my DVD recorder has no problem at all in burning a usable DVD, why does EMC have such a problem with doing exactly the same?

 

The reason for using EMC 7 when I already had a usable DVD was to spruce it up a bit; the editing facilities on my DVD recorder are pretty basic. I used VideoWave to produce an MPEG file from my DVD which I then split into titles in VideoWave and then added chapters to each title and added some audio and a picture in DVD Builder.

Don't click on the fit to disc, and don't burn it to a DVD. Burn to an ISO file, only, and make sure you have it set to Best for quality. Disc Copier will then compress, as necessary, to fit it to your DVD.

How much you can get onto a DVD with Disk Copier also depends on the version that you have. Strangely, version 7.1 will allow more than 2 hours, 7.5 won't.

Thanks, I'll give it another go. I have been burning it as an ISO file but I shall try it without clicking on Fit To Disk. The thing is that when I did this (click on Fit to Disk), it said that it wouldn't work, so I assumed that DVDBuilder was ignoring it.

 

By the way, despite the menu error message, the titles that were in the ISO file (even if only half the number that were there originally) copied successfuly to a DVD.

i am having trouble with errors amongst other problems with roxio. i have had creator 6 for a couple of years. i upgraded to creator 8...problem starts. when i tried using the dvd options it would hang (freeze) up and then microsoft would shut me down or I had to use task manager to unhang it. I uninstalled 8 and kept 6 . I have never had any trouble with burning issues with this program. now I can no longer burn a dvd in dvd builder, while encoding it stops with error E80041930 (trackwriter Error) and E80041863 'recorder in process of being ready' it will still burn video cd and will burn dvd's in dvd copier but no dvd will burn in dvd builder. i have tried all roxio lines and they have not even contacted me yet and I would love to get back to working order.
