Problem Linking To Submenu Movies


Magsie
 Share

Question

Hi again,

I thought I had the 'unlinked button' sorted, but since playing back the finished dvd production on my dvd player I find that the 'play all' button works well, but the buttons are not highlighted when using the remote up/down etc, so it is difficult to choose the 'select movie' button where the submenu movies are. I managed to get to the submenu movies (somehow) and while everything looked good, I could not select the individual movies.

 

I have tried going through alot of the other people's problems associated with the unlinked button in these forums, but I'm getting more confused by doing this. I have checked out Jim Harden's information for MyDVD9, which was very helpful. But I am obviously doing something wrong and would appreciate help.

 

I have Roxio Creator 2010 Pro. Windows XP SP3. Working from VideoWave and MyDVD Programs.

Regards,

Magsie

No, I haven't tried that. Looks good thought. I'll try it and let you know how it goes.

Just to let you know I followed the instructions in the link you provided and everything worked ok.

 

On another note:

I am in the habit now of creating an .iso image file and burning to disc from that. Would just like to confirm that the original files (photos, videos etc) used in the initial production are not needed on the computer. Reason is that I have the original video files on an external hard disc and just want to know for future reference, if I need to plug that in when burning the image file to a physical dvd.

 

Thanks,

Regards, Magsie

An ISO file is an image of what would be on the DVD once you burned it. It does not need any supporting resources. No need to plug in the external drive.

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately one thing leads to another and just when I thought everything was working really well, I find now that I am unable to add my recent iso image file into the program, 'Roxio Disc Image Loader', and load it into the Emulated Drive to view in CinePlayer.

 

I have been able to do this with other iso image files, but this one looks exactly the same as the other iso files but will not open.

 

Would appreciate you help/suggestions.

For my own use, I mostly stopped using ISO’s some years ago…

 

If I don’t want to burn a test disc (RW), I create a Folder set instead.

 

It has the advantage that CinePlayer will play it as is without all the muss & fuss of Virtual Drives and mounting & dismounting they require… ;)

 

Having said that, what happens when you attempt to load an ISO? (might indicate underlying problems :huh: )

 

What is the total time for this Project? (Bigger is Worser :lol: )

Folder sets are very good and very useful especially if you have a very long project. With folders sets, you can get a little more on a disc.

 

Use VLC (free player from CNET.COM) to try to play that ISO file. That will play just about everything. Using VLC will tell you if the ISO is a problem or if there is somehtign with disc image loader.

Good idea Steve!

 

I forget that I even have it loaded :lol:

Thank you both for your replies. It is a large file but no larger than another that worked ok. I tried playing it in VLC but it would not even work in there while the other iso file did work, no trouble. Therefore it would seem that there was a problem with the iso file so I will redo the project using one or both of your suggested methods.

Fingers crossed.

Finally have files that work properly, ie. I created an iso image as well as a Folder Set, just to make sure that the project was ok. They both work in CinePlayer as I had created the project in MyDVD.

 

Thanks again. Hopefully there will be no further problems.

 

Regards, Magsie.
