BIG problem with My DVD 10 Premier

Question

Hi There,

 

This topic comes as details to my other post concerning the problem of importing mpg files into My DVD 10 Premier.

 

PC: HP Pavilion DV9000 (dual core, 2 GB RAM, 2 internal disks of 120 GB)

OS: Windows XP SP2

 

version bought 24 November 2009.

 

MyDVD 10 installed

Roxio content installed

SP1 installed

SP2 installed

 

Problem: when I import an mpg file of 404 MB in a project with a menu of 41 MB and asking as quality paramter to keep as original, the space occupied is more than 900 MB !!!

 

I completely removed Roxio Creator content 2010 as well as Roxio MyDVD (full reboot).

 

re- install MyDVD 10 Premier:

Importing the 404 MB works OK (project size around 450 MB) . But I have access to a very limited number of templates.

 

Install Roxio content 2010:

create a new project, import the 404 MB file (always with quality as original) and bang :: project size exploded to 900 MB !!!

 

Install SP1: no change

 

Read old project (created WITHOUT SP & content) size is still OK.

 

It seems that the program is UNABLE to calculate correctly the size.

I burned the project and the folder size is well around the 900 MB.

 

What is WRONG with this Roxio product???????

 

Thank you for any help.

It's impossible to understand what problems you are having. You have 3 or 4 threads going and in each one you seem to mention a different program you are using.

 

What program suite do you have and are using? Be specific, Roxio 10 means nothing nor does Roxio Content plus a few other names you have mentioned.

 

Also file sizes are pretty useless when talking about video DVDs. The important parameter is the timelength of the video. A standard 4.7GB DVD will hold 60 minutes of video at best quality independent of what the source file size is.

Hi thank you for your reply.

 

I'm very sorry that it is unclear to understand. I confess that I was also confused when I bought the software from the Roxio site. I was expecting to purchase myDVD 10 as one software but I also received a file Roxio2010Content_HV15AXD0SQA.exe which confused me....as no explanation was provided....

 

Anyway, you did well to move my posts to MyDVD 10 Premier and Roxio Video Lab as these are really the soft.

 

I have 2 problems:

- 1 with the import of mpg files.

- when seeing the DVD it does NOT move to next chapter between chapter 2 and 3 but well between chapter 1 to 2 (I leave this problem on the side for the moment)

 

Let's come back to problem 1:

PC Win XP SP2 (English version)

I had MyDVD installed then Roxio2010Content.....(French version build 122B07B FRA ...yes I'm from europe ...)

At that time importing the file worth 13 min (404 MB) into the menu creates a DVD of around 450 MB....so OK.

 

- I installed SP1 & SP2 (automatic update proposed by Roxio which unfortunately I accepted).

 

Trying again a totally new project WITH SAME TEMPLATE AND SAME ORIGINAL MPG file (NOT another mpg BUT the SAME SO SAME DURATION ...) bang DVD is now 900 MB....

 

I also tried to fully remove the Roxio 2010 Content (which is a separate entry in the list of applications shown by Windows) then also My DVD ...then re-install ONLY

MyDVD ...but the problem is always there (DVD of 900 MB (yes I know need to speak about duration but it is still 13 min .....)....

 

this means for me that the removal is not total ....and the product seems very unstable....

 

If you have any other tips or proposal ..thank you in advance

Hello the Community,

 

Is there anyone having same type of problem? .....and more importantly has anyone a suggestion explaining why 2 same operations reach different results?

 

Thanks for any feedback.

It is an interesting observation. I will see if I can duplicate the issue. Regardless, you have a choice of moving with a smaller file (not using SP1/2 or Content install) if the size is a primary concern and author a DVD.

Did you use the same DVD quality setting for both cases? The 2 results are easily explained if you used different settings.
