You posted in the Creator 2009 forum but state you are using EMC 9. So i moved your post to the correct forum.

 

First of all, don't use Cinemagic, it is very limited in its features.

To assemble a slideshow, you should be using Videowave. That program is designed for that purpose. Once you have created your slideshow, save it as a project file using the Save As option (remember where you save it, it will have the extension dmsm). Then exit Videowave and start myDVD. myDVD is the program to use for creating the menus and burning the DVD.

Once you have started myDVD, use Add Movie/Photos to add the Videowave project file (it has the extension dmsm). Complete your menu and then you can burn to DVD.

 

I don't under stand your error message: "DISC COUNLD NOT BE EITHER PLAY OR RECORD"

 

 

BTW, I would start with a small slideshow of only a few pictures until you know what you are doing. Use RW DVDs for that purpose.

Please post your computer specs including your video card/chip information and what Operating System you are using? Is it a laptop or desktop? Since it worked with 97 photos, then the software is most likely OK.

 

You got a BSOD when you went to play the DVD on your computer? When did you do any maintenance on it? Have you ever updated the video drivers? Is it well above the minimum specs for the program?

 

A couple of things to remember especially with that many photos. You can get only about 1 hour worth of best quality video on a single sided disc; up to a little less than 2 hours at crap quality. You would not be able to put more than 2 hours on a disc.

 

There are different quality DVD media. If you are using Memorex or store brands, they are sometimes the problem, Get some Verbatim discs. Also get some RW to play with. If you have 400-500 images at about 8 seconds each then you are just over the 1 hour limit. If the images are displayed longer than that you may run into quality issues.

 

You had several other posts in the past about a bad burner and other issues to which you never responded to tell us if your problems were fixed. Please do so in this thread.

What manufacturer and what full model number. Laptop or desktop. We usually can find the rest. if you know know anything about your computer, how did you determine if it met the minimum specifications for the program. I'm now leaning to the assumption that it won't.

 

Do you have Easy Media Cretor 9 or do you have a version that came with the computer?

 

We'll answer when we have time. :angry:

I'm sure you didn't mean to say all that twice, so I removed the second copy of your message to try and help.

 

If you want the "cute specs" in your profile, you'll first need to get the cute hardware the folks have. :)

 

Seriously though, you can put a condensed version of those specs into your 'signature', and it's a handy thing to have there.

 

Go near the top of the forum page just under the blue line with your login name and you'll see a link to 'My Controls'. Click that, and in the next page look below 'Personal Profile' and you'll see a link to 'Edit Signature'.

 

There you should list only the important things about your system - it shouldn't be a 'Brag List'. Things like system type, speed, Operating System, video card, CD/DVD burner(s) - that sort of thing.

 

The name and version number of your Sonic/Roxio software should be mentioned in the message you post, if you ask a question about it.

 

Cheers,

Brendon

How old is that laptop? The TNT2 video chip may be your downfall. I haven't looked it up, but I would guess that they quit making that video chip, eight years ago, or more.

 

At any rate, it isn't going to work well with the software, or if it does work, it will be hit and miss.

 

 

And, if you did not change to starting your project in VideoWave, and are still using the Cinemagic, the maximum number of photos that you can put in a slide show, is 99. In VideoWave, there is no limit.

<snipl>

Maybe a bit off, but there is a driver update on cnet.com suggesting 2004 - since specs give 2007, I'm not sure if 2004 is the hardware or software.

 

I think 2004 might be about the time of EMC 7?

 

And generally, hardware is older than driver updates for said hardware.

Best I can tell is that card only had 32mb of memory which is probably not enough to handle the video.

What the chip had I don't know but it's probably shared and could also be a low number.

Hello All I have Roxio EMC9 Ver: 9.0.546

You say you have "Dell Precision WorkStation 360 (Desktop)". Does that mean it is on a network?

 

I don't know if it would make any difference using the Dell Forums -

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forum...op/default.aspx

 

I'm not familiar enough with EMC 9 to know if that is an OEM, but I sure someone would know.
