Unable To Burn Dvd With Imported Wmv File

Question

Hi,

 

I need help on a problem burning DVD from an ISO file that I created by importing WMV file into Roxio. I am using Roxio Creator 2009 Special Edition. Here are the steps I went thru:

 

 

First I created a WMV file of a slideshow(with audio) using Photoshop.

 

I made sure the WMV file plays correctly in Windows Media player.

 

Next I imported the WMV file into MyDVD(Roxio)and created the image file ISO. Before encoding started, I previewed the video to make sure it played correctly.

 

Then I tried to burn DVD using the ISO file. I get error message saying

"Failed to start the image writing operation Error while Burning Image

80004003 Error while Aborting"

 

I have tried different blank DVDs and also repeated the entire process from creating WMV file (in Photoshop)

to burning disc. Same problem exists.

 

As a background, I have created several multi-media slideshows before using the same Roxio 2009 product, except all of them I created entirely from scratch within Roxio and never from an imported WMV file.

 

Any suggestion is appreciated!

 

Thanks

One more thing I forgot to say. I have tried to burn the same ISO image file onto DVD using Nero and there also I get similar message that problem writing to the disc. So my guess is somehow Roxio has problem with the WMV file.

Roxio should have no problem with the wmv file (unless you are creating some oddball wmv in Photoshop). I use wmv files all the time to burn video DVDs and have never had any problem. Obviously Roxio has no problem with the wmv format since it created the iso file. If there was something wrong with the wmv format, the encoding process would have aborted as it was creating the iso file.

 

Does Photoshop not give you any other format options such as DV avi or mpeg2?

 

Have you played the iso file with a player such as VLC?

 

Have used Videowave to output the wmv file to a mpeg2 file?

 

How long in time is the slideshow

Thanks for the comments.

 

I also think the wmv file generated by Phtoshop should be ok because I am able to play it in Windows as well as within Roxio as a preview before creating the ISO file. There are no other output options(like dvi or mpeg2) other than a PDF file in Photoshop.

 

 

Now what is a VLC player? Never heard of it before.

 

I have not tried to convert wmv into mpeg2 using Videowave- did not know that I could do that. I will try.

 

Slideshow is about 20 min long and 180 slides plus music; wmv file size is 500+ MB; ISO file size 1.3 GB

VLC is one of the best, free media players available. It plays almost everything. Here is the link to the site

 

There is a lot you can do with Videowave. You could actually use it to create your whole slideshow with it. That way you don't have to bother with Photoshop.

 

BTW, file sizes are not important when creating DVDs. It is the time length of the video that matters more. A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video when using the best (HQ) quality setting. Any longer and the video gets compressed and the quality goes down.

Hello,

 

Problem solved! It turned out to be the drive on my PC which I never suspected because I recently burnt some audio CDs on the same drive. For some reason, it has now a problem burning video which I have to figure out still. I took the same ISO file to my laptop and was able to burn a dvd which played without any problem. That is how I found out the problem.

 

In the meantime I had also generated mpeg2 files as you suggested and tried to burn which did not work for the reason stated above.

 

Sorry for the confusion! However I learnt a few good tips from you. Thanks!

 

BTW, reason I tried Photoshop this time is because I wanted to experiment something new. In the past I have felt Videowave too slow. In photoshop adding pictures and moving them around etc is very fast. The only drawback I see in Photoshop is, there is only one track for audio so if you want to blend multiple audio clips, you have to do it offline using a separate audio editing Sw, save it and then bring it into PS. This process is greatly simplified in Roxio.

Hello Rayan,

 

The problem may be that your drive no longer burns DVDs.

 

It's not obvious to the average user, but there are two separate sets of burning hardware in a drive, one for DVDs and one for CDs. It is quite possible for your DVD burner to fail while your CD burner lives happily on.

 

Regards,

Brendon
