Program running slow and hanging

Question

Hello. I am running Roxio Creator 2010 on a Gateway PC, Vista 64, 1.83Ghz Core 2 Duo processor with 4 GB RAM and about 150 GB free on my hard drive.

 

I installed Creator 2010 about a month ago and it seemed to work fine. Within the last 2 days, the program has stopped working correctly. In videowave, every time I do something (add a video, color panel, sound, save, text) the program stops responding for about 1 to 5 minutes and then eventually completes the task. This is very annoying as it now takes hours to do very basic video editing due to having to wait for all of this to happen. I know there was a recent Creator 2010 update. I've installed that and it did not fix the problem. I also did a system restore to a point when the program was working properly and that did not help. Also, I've not installed any new programs or updates to my computer recently.

 

Finally, the only thing that has changed is that I took a video file off of a disc and put it on my hard drive so that I could edit it in videowave.

 

I'd appreciate any help or thoughts you might have.

 

Thanks

1) Use CCleaner to get rid of junk and temporary file.

2) Defrag your hard drive.

3) Open Video Wave (Edit Video - Advanced) and go to the top menu, tools, options. Put a dot near software or hardware where ever the dot isn't.

 

Try again.

 

Is the project you are working on much longer than the previous ones?

Thanks for the help. I ran CCleaner etc. and checked software in the options menu, but the problem remains. The odd thing is that I'm working with very small video files, approximately 3 minutes in length, so I would be surprised if the program/my system were getting bogged down as a result.

My hard drive is set to defrag automatically every other week or so. I also ran it manually this morning after I ran CCleaner.

You could try Control Panel – Add/Remove Programs – Roxio – Repair.

 

But something is different! You have not supplied any details about the Project or the Files you are dealing with???

Ok, the project is creating DVDs of some home videos. I had a company put some super 8 reel footage onto DVD discs. I am then planning on taking each file (about 3 to 4 minute each), adding music and titling, and then putting them all on one dvd with a menu etc. I imported and converted the files in Roxio Creator 2010 by selecting the source material on the DVD disc and then selecting "Video" in the Copy and Convert program within Creator 2010.

Are the video clips separate files on the DVD or did the company create video DVD that you can play on a DVD player?

 

I would copy the video from the DVD to a folder on the hard drive.

Then launch Videowave and add a video clip, perhaps do some editing, add audio, titling and then save your production as Videowave project file. Do this for each of the video files.

Then exit Videowave and launch myDVD. Select a menu style and then add each VW project file as a Title on the menu page.

 

You don't need to fool around with VCC at all If you were using the video direct from the DVD that could be the reason for the "slowdown"

OK, but your "slowness" is when you bring them into VideoWave, correct?

 

What format are they at that point?

 

The files on the DVD I assume are vob? Do they have one vob for each movie converted? (thinking you could just copy them to your HDD and rename them to mpg)
