Error 8004520C While Encoding Movie 1

Question

I have windows XP on my laptop. I downloaded and installed Roxio creator 2011. I managed to create 1 dvd with no problems the first time. After that, I could not create another one. I tried many times to create another dvd to no avail. Finally, I uninstalled, and redownloaded the software again. Same thing, after installation, I managed to create the very first project with no problems. but no more after that. I just keep getting that error message 8004520c while encoding movie 1. I defragmented and still nothing. I tried burning as a ISo file, still nothing. Getting very frustrated.

Where did you get the movies in your project? Have you used Video Wave to do any editing? If so, output you video from that application to a mpg2 for DVD file. I'm sure that you would not try to burn any DRM protected contect and ignore the warnings.

 

Are you running any registry cleaners including one that is part of a registry cleaner? The more aggressive ones (I won't mention the McA name) will sometimes screw up the Roxio programs. I thought that the anitvirus company had fixed that though.

 

You defragmented but how much free space do you have on your hard drive?

The movies I'm trying to burn are MPEG-4 home video movies recorded with my high def video camera. I have these movies loaded into my laptop. I have not used video wave. I don't run any registry cleaners. The capacity on my hard drive is 230 GB and free space is 165 GB. The only thing that is constantly running is my antivirus software.

Re: Anti-virus - which one? Make sure you set it to 1) not scan anything already on your drive ( the scanning could slow down your computer) and 2) Make sure that any registry cleaners in that anti-virus are set to ignore Roxio/Sonic entries in the registry.

 

Add each movie to Video Wave. Do any editing you want to. Output the video to an mpg2 for DVD, best quality file. If Video Wave hangs; there is probably some corruption in the files. You can output from Video Wave by going to the menu along the top and selecting "Output" then export as.

 

When you made the ISO file, did you also try to burn to disc at the same time? Don't.

 

What menu style are you using?

 

Are you trying to make a high definition disc?

As far as the antivirus I'm using, it's Norton 2011. Video wave does not hang. I tried all the menu styles. Still get error message. I tried burning on High def. setting, and standard setting. Deactivated Norton. Same error message 8004520c. I was playing around with it today and found out that it will work if I don't use menus. In other words, when I'm in the "Please select project type" window, I check the box that says "Exclude disc menu for DVD and BD projects" And the #$^@ thing Burns to disc. Otherwise, it will not burn with menus. And I get error 8004520c. I chatted with tech support and told me to try to update the video card and directx9 wich I did, and still wont burn with menus. what puzzles me is why did it burn with menus on the very first project with no problems on my 2 downloads of Roxio 2011, and not any after that? On my second download of Roxio, first project came Ok, but not any more after that.

Did anyone find a solution to this problem? I'm experiencing the same thing. I burned one disc with menus and now I'm trying to run another one without menus. I created another project with the same dmsm files and cannot burn a disc image or burn to disc. I get error message 8004520c.

This appears (to me) to be an issue with the Roxio 2011 software itself, for a number of reasions listed below. I am using a brand new computer (less than a couple months old), Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, with over 1.5TB available disc space. I am reluctant to start tweaking drivers and software settings at this point, as has been suggested by technical support, before it can be proven that this is not a software bug. I have tried some of their other suggestions (like defragmenting my drive).

 

It will not only not burn to dvd, it will also not create the image file (Burn Project to Disc > Save disc image to file) nor will it create the folder structure Burn Project to Disc > Create folder set). In the later case it hangs. I left it run all night (for almost 10 hours) and it never got past 1% done; it kept restarting.

 

So even if you are not burning to disc, it still has the issue.

 

Secondly, I do notice that Roxio does not appear to have any issue burning CDs or data DVDs. This seems to be related to the MY DVD component.

 

Finally, I am also reviewing another Video DVD software package, which does not have any issues at all as of yet. This is the main reason I believe the issue to be with the Roxio software and not necessarily computers running it. The other package is the other one. I've found it a little more difficult to use, but it burns nicely with no issues.

 

I have never had any problem with Roxio in the past, which is why I upgraded to Roxio 2011. However, it looks like there are still some bugs for them to work out. So openning tickets to Roxio technical support is probably a good idea.

Removed name of other software. Roxio burns fine for almost all of the users. Issue may be the type of file format.
