Slide Show Freezes

Question

I've been using EMC 8 with Win XP SP2 and I can get slide shows burned to DVD but when playing they freeze and then re-start several slides later. I try re-burning and sometimes they're O.K. but it is becoming quite frustrating buring 10 DVD's to get 1 good one. I've done another new show and now every DVD burned freezes & re-starts. I know I have an older version but what gives? Any help will be appreciated. I have Intel Pentium 4 3.4 GHz w/1 GB DDR2 SDRAM. I am not getting any errors at time of burning and I shut down all spyware/virus programs.

Could be a problem with the make of DVDs you are using. What make are you using? If its not Verbatims you are using 2nd rate DVDs.

You also have not given any information on how you are doing the burn, what program from EMC 8 you are using, etc.

 

Have you done a defrag of your hard drive lately? Are you shutting down all running apps when burning, turning of antivirus checking?

I'm using Sony DVD+R since I have a Sony DVD player. I start the program on Video Wave and then transfer over to MY DVD to add all the "bells & whistles" to the slide show. I make an .iso file & make sure that all anti-virus/spyware programs are turned off. As stated before I get no error messages or have any problems at this point. Once rendering is done I go to the .iso file and double click and burn to the DVD & once again I do not get any error messages or any hint of problems. Only when I play on my DVD player does it stop/skip a few frames & then proceed again.

 

I will try a Verbatim disc to see what happens. My only other thought is that my DVD player is causing the problem. I even purchased a DVD cleaner thinking maybe dust was causing the problem but that didn't help either.

If you mean transitions,audio, effects etc by "bells and whistles" then those should be done in Videowave. myDVD is best suited for adding the menus and associated (bells and whistles".

 

You could play the DVD on your computer system or another DVD player to see if its the player
