Dvd Builder

Question

Hi, I have been using DVD builder for the past year with no problems, so can say first of all that as far as I know, I know how to create a project and burn it to disc without problems.

However....

 

Today I created 6 projects, saved them as normal, opened DVD Builder, imported the projects, previewed it, and all was fine, but....

 

When I clicked on the 'burn' button, I went to advanced settings, adjusted where necessary as normal and clicked 'ok' at the bottom of the panel. Up came the screen that shows disc progress, but after about 2 minutes, it just closed and returned to the normal Roxio opening page screen.

 

I have checked my projects, settings etc to ensure that they were all ok and nothing corrupt in them, so after 7 hours of trying, I am now at a loss, can anyone help at all please?

You state that you have tons of HD space free (100GB). This is only a suggestion and if you have that much free HD space then it probably won't make any difference. But, there are times when one has done lots of "Restore" points using MS's default restore facility program and that can sometimes make a big difference in what real "FREE" space one thinks they have. That can be the problem if all the space that is taken up by the restore points is close to what the system says is free. Just a suggestion.

New User, I have been using Roxio for a little under a year - made many, many discs - NO Problems. But like you, one day I used it and it just crashed. No comments, no error message. Same exact story - it was burining and after two minutes it just closed. I had to search forever to find an answer to this problem on this board and I never did...someone please help...I know we two aren't the only ones with this problem.

 

I am using Windows XP....DVD re-writeable drive...like him I defragment...spyware/adware and virus software installed...over 50GB of free space

 

P.s. I also un-installed and re-installed the program - Still causes the same problems :)

Have just tried yet again, and still no joy :)

 

You've tried defragmenting your hard drive, checking for spyware, etc.?

 

How about a Windows Add Remove Programs\ Roxio\ change\ repair?

Just a thought, you say you have anti virus, spyware, adware did you try disabling these programs and trying to burn with them disabled?

But I've made hundreds of Disc's without ever having to disable any of my software.

 

However, I did find the answer to this problem...

 

I gave up on Roxio and installed a software that came with my dvd drive last year. I began to make the same disk I was trying to make with Roxio before it kept shutting down, and when I went to burn that disc - using the new software...in the middle of the burn it stated "Cannot Burn...Errors in Audio File"

 

I then realized that before...whenever I burned something I got off the internet, I always converted it to AVI using LAME audio - thereby correcting the audio problems in the file...I did this so I could watch it on my mp3 player...but since I never do...I stopped converting to AVI.

 

It funny how a cheap software that came with a $40 dvd drive could tell me what the problem is, but a $100 software sold seperately couldn't.

 

Thank you for your help... :)

 

I hope this helps the gentleman who first inquired about this, but I don't think I will ever purchase a Roxio item again

Hi,

Thankyou very much for the replies...

Checked my computer for spyware/malware using my free version of AdAware

I have defragmented my hard drive, and checked for spyware.

I've also tried the Windows Add Remove Programs\ Roxio\ change\ repair, but this keeps 'not responding'.

 

So basically I am still at a loss. I have a good computer with loads of hard drive space free (at least 100gb), so don't know whether I should completetly un-install Roxio and re-install, or would this make no difference (as it has worked ok before), or would this corrupt any Roxio files I already have on the computer?

 

Thankyou again for the replies, and any more would be appreciated.

Cheers

Steve

- You got a 'not responding' on a repair? That's strange. Have you installed any new programs lately?

 

- You've tried rebuilding your Media Manager database?

 

- There is a possibility that there is something wrong with the storyline of the first production. I'd suggest going back to the VideoWave production and try a File\ Output production to..... DVD authoring\ Best.

 

If none of the above is the problem, then an uninstall and reinstall is probably your only option. I hesitate to suggest that because you will probably have to relink all your productions to the files. But if something has become corrupt, you'll have no choice.

Wait... so .AVI files make the program crash? What kind of a program is that? Gosh...

 

P.S. Roxio is great... it's the only software that I've ever seen that lets you do stuff like adjusting coloring, perfect green-screen effects, pro-style editing. I do have to agree that it would be nice to have a bit more audio and video tracks to go with it, and less problems w/ sync., oh yeah, and a better DVD autoring system... but other than that, I really like the stuff. If anyone knows another software that can do all of these beautiful features, with better functions, PLZ notify me. Tnx.
