Easy Video Copy & Convert


JJS99
 Share

Question

The Easy Video Copy and Convert only converts 36 video files to a DVD at a time. I have selected more than 36 videos to convert and burn to a 4.7 GB DVD, however only 36 files, total less than 1 GB will convert.

How do I get more files to convert and burn to the DVD?

There is NO number limit and File Size is absolutely meaningless in video ;)

 

But we are going to need a little more than ‘don’t work’ to have any idea what you are doing or where the problem is

 

A little more information would help us get a better picture. Try using these guidelines for describing your problem and your system: HERE

 

Confirm the actual software you have??? You named one but posted in a Forum for another software Suite.

Jim, I developed a new problem after the original posting. The problem now is the software will only convert and burn 36 video files. If I have 37 or more files in the list, the software will only convert 36. Typically I am trying to convert 150-170 files, but for testing purposes I limited the number to ~40. The individual files are very short, typically ~15 seconds, but I ran a test with 2-3 second files with no change in results.

OK I will try it as soon as I can with 37 :lol:

 

Edit: I ended up with 41 and they went through without a problem both as files and to a DVD:

Guessing time to try a repair:

 

Turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc. and insert your Roxio Disc (download version - run Install)

 

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

 

When you reach the screen where
Repair
is offered, choose that!

 

Then turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.

 

If that does not do the trick, then there may be something in one of the files that it balks on...

Jim,

Sorry for the long delay in responding, I've been out of town. I tried your suggestion with no change, I'm still limited to 36 files. Are you running Copy and Convert 5? I couldn't tell from your screen capture. I don't know if its relevant, but I am trying to convert *.mts files and burn them to a dvd.

Where do you get the "5" in Copy and Convert? Where did you get these mts files?

sknis, I had the same thought as you and have tried many different files with the same results. I am trying to convert *.mts files to a format that can be viewed on a regular (not Blu-Ray) dvd player.

 

myguggi, the files come from my Canon camcorder. If I understand correctly, it is a form of HD video that must be converted to be viewed on a standard dvd player.

 

My apologies to the OP, JJS99, for hijacking his thread, but it looks like we both have the same issue.

Bob, The original poster has an issue with batch converting more than 36 mts files at a time. Is that what you are experiencing? Actually if you have a different issue, it would be better to start your own thread. Do you have Video Copy and Convert version 5 or do you have one that came with Creator? They are significantly different.

 

Which Canon camcorder do you have. Are you sure they are mts files? I thought most Canon camcorders recorded in AVCHD format. That is what you said in your other thread. Are you recording in MXP mode?

 

Yes, HD (1080) video files must have the resolution reduced to 480 to be put on a standard DVD. That is done automatically if you use (if you don't have the standalone version) Video Wave to edit the video and MyDVD to create a DVD disc.

 

Bob, I think you have a completely different issue and maybe not even the same software and definitely different hardware. Please start your own thread; the answers you get will either confuse you or the original poster who has the problem with batch convert on his set up. I would separate the posts but since you didn't say what your problem was, there would be no starting point.

sknis, I resolved the issue in my other thread. My current problem is converting more than 36 files which sounds like the same problem as the original poster in this thread. I am using Easy Video Copy and Convert 5. I have a Canon Vixia HFR300. The files are definitely *.mts (I'm new to video, aren't mts files a form of AVCHD?). I am recording in MXP.

 

Jim, Roxio Easy Video Copy and Convert 5 (Build 136B00D).

 

I record football games for the coaching staff at a local high school. I record each play and pause recording between plays, resulting in about 150 *.mts files. The coach uses a regular dvd player to play back the video to the team, so I must convert the files to the appropriate format (I do not have the option to record in SD). In Easy Video Copy and Convert 5, I select "Movies" under Add Source:, I select all of the video files from the SD card then select "DVD" under Choose Output:. Then I click on the Green Arrow (Go Button). The file conversion begins and the dvd begins burning. There is no indication of anything wrong, but when I play back the dvd, only 36 plays are shown. I look at the dvd in Windows Explorer and there are only 36 video files on the disk. This is not a file size or video length problem because I ran a test using 40 files of only 2-3 seconds but the software only converted and burned 36 of the 40 files.

Read your manual about recording in MXP. I think there are some restrictions about what you can do with the MXP files. I can't find the citation where i saw that.

 

Since you are both having issues with "36", you should contact Roxio/Corel support.

I don't have a manual, I downloaded the software but I didn't see anything about MXP in Help. I just tried a test using every other recording format with no change in results.

 

I have exchanged multiple emails with Tech support. They closed 2 open cases even though I was waiting for feedback from them both times.

 

I appreciate you trying to help. I am stumped.

After emails with Canon, I learned that this model is not capable of converting to dvd. Apparently there should have been software included that can do this conversion, but it was not included with my camera. Hopefully, Canon will be able to help. I am still confused as to why Roxio's software could not accomplish this task.

 

Thanks to everyone.

Did they say that you could not rip the video files or did they say that the format with which you recorded could not be ripped. Did they suggest that you record in a different format? Look at your manual on line and then search in that manual for MXP. I read it so I know that there is an on-line manual.

 

Every manufacturer designs their own format so that you keep coming back. Roxio cannot design for every propitiatory format.

Here is a link for the manual

 

Do you have a short clip that you could upload to a free web hosting site such a UP4Down.com from where we can download it and test it?

sknis,

 

They did not mention any problem with the video format. Here is Canon's email:

 

"The HF R300 is not capable of this feature as it only uses a memory card. For example, the HF R32 can do this, but only from the built-in memory to the SD card. As your camera only uses SD cards, it is not possible to convert since you are only using one form of storage. My best suggestion would be to download the footage to your PC. Once downloaded, you can convert it using the included Pixela software."

 

The problem is, as I said, the Pixela software was not included. This is what I was trying to do with the Roxio software. I am awaiting their response to my last email.

 

myguggi, I've looked at the manual, but I'll take another look. Thanks for the link. I'll upload a sample video. Thanks for that idea as well.
