Creating Iso Image Hangs


Bdub

Question

I've been trying to create an ISO image from a Videowave project. The project starts up, and comes up with the screen with the checklist of things to do (opening project, encoding menus, etc.) but then just sits there. I've even left it running for 2.5 days straight when I took a quick weekend trip, and nothing happened. (Things like creating menus in Videowave took a loooong time, so I thought that if I let it go, it might wind up finishing, but no dice.) If I cancel on it, it shows 97% complete, but the ISO hasn't been created.

 

I'm running Vista 64 bit with 4G of RAM. I'm trying to create a 8.5G ISO file for a DL disc - but NOT burning straight to disc, just trying to create the ISO. Wondering if trying to burn to files might work better - will try that next, but in the meantime, I SHOULD be able to create an ISO image. I've tried the usual fixes - updating drivers, firmware, etc. I even replaced the video chip (it burned out due to another reason), and that didn't change anything.

 

I had this issue with other versions of Roxio, so I thought the upgrade to 11 would fix it, but evidently not.

 

Any suggestions? This is pretty darned frustrating... Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

Videowave cannot create menus nor can it create iso files. I believe you are referring to myDVD which is where menus are created and you can burn to an iso image file.

I have no problem with menus or burning to iso files with my Vista 64. If you can't create the iso file I doubt very much that you will have better luck burning to DVD or to a folder set. It seems that there is something wrong with your menu setup if it hangs that long.

 

Try a simpler project with a simple menu and see if that works. Also try switching the software render method from hardware to software or vice versa.

 

If you had the same problem with other versions of Roxio on the same computer then there is something wrong with your system.

Thanks for the comments. There's nothing wrong with the menus, I've burned a simpler project just fine.

 

As for the software/hardware rendering - how would you go about changing that?

 

Thanks in advance.

Open My DVD>Tools>select options. Top left is rendering, if you click on the Help it explains the difference between Software & Hardware.
