Burning DVD without menu

Question

I upgraded to Windows 7 and am having a problem. First I create a slideshow with music in Videowave, then I click on the DVD icon that takes me to "Burn with My DVD Express." The Disc format menu does not let me choose "DVD-no menu"-- I have burned hundreds of shows and have never had this problem before. I really need this option and any help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of Roxio do you have? If you have the retail version of 2010, under 'Output' choose, 'Send to MyDVD' and then you should have the option you want.

I have have Easy Media Creator 10 too. The drop down list still shows the "without menu" option but does not let me select it.

Thanks

EMC 10 and Creator 2010 have different menus when "Sending to myDVD" and behave differently. So lets first make sure what program you are really using. Do you have both programs and which one are you using?

 

Another option is to save your Videowave project as a dmsm project file. Then exit Videowave and launch myDVD, then select New Project/DVD, no menus.

 

THis works in both programs. If you don not get the "DVD, no menus" option then maybe you have only a OEM version which may have this and other features disabled or missing. Another possibility is of course a "corrupt" install.

I have EMC 2010 and it is the retail version. I always create a dmsm file so I did as you said and opened My DVD and from there I chose new DVD, no menu. When I pointed to the dmsm file the program crashed. Good approach...I guess I will have to try a reinstall.

Do you have a small mpeg file you can try to put into MyDVD and then choose the No Menu option to see what happens? Let's make sure MyDVD is working like it should.

Ok the mpeg file worked fine so it must have something to do with the dmsm file.

 

You can something else. Under Output, choose the Export As then choose the MPEG2 for DVD, Best Quality then take that into MyDVD. It will take just a little more time in VW but should save time in MyDVD.

There is no such program as EMC 2010 - there is EMC 10 and Roxio Creator 2010 (C2010).

On top of that myDVD Express has been dropped from C2010 so you must be using EMC 10.

 

It would really help if you were to clarify which program you are using.

 

You also state you may have both suites installed. Could it be that you are using the dmsm file from one suite in the other? That could easily crash the program.

 

I think that the additional step (creation of the MPEG2 file) degrades quality a bit???

 

If you created the mpeg2 (best quality) file in VW, it will be used in myDVD without rerendering as long as you select the HQ or same quality as original and there is no degradation.

Yup, I have 2010 on the brain. I have only Easy Media Creator 10 Suite installed. I have been using the Roxio products for many years.

EMC 10 is not Win7 certified!

 

By posting in the 2010 area you have misled all of these people trying to help you as they are giving you answers based on software that is 2 versions beyond what you even have!

My apologies...I did state the correct version at one point and I appreciate what I learned. I was certainly not intending to mislead anyone.

No, you never really stated what version you were using :unsure: I know you were not being deliberately misleading but as you can see it is important to be exact in stating what version is being used. It avoids a lot of confusion (which is to a great extent Roxio/Sonics fault because of the silly naming system), time wasting and frustration.

Well I did in post #3, here is my statement-----

"I have have Easy Media Creator 10 too. The drop down list still shows the "without menu" option but does not let me select it."

To me and obviously others that statement meant "I also have Easy media Creator 10" not that you were using it.

 

Lets put this to rest and move on.... :)
