2011's Latest Updates


c47srule

Question

Hello, I just installed the latest updates to Roxio 2011 pro. I produced a dvd that was missing many portions of the .avi file. My client was hours away from dvd pickup. Fortunately I still had sonic mydvd still loaded and was able to produce the dvd.

 

That was point one. point two is now I cannot even copy the .avi file to a dvd.

This has happened on two computers.

any ideas?

Okay, problem solved regarding dvd burning issues. It seems that I had the perfect storm come upon me with this problem. I uninstalled 2011 pro and reinstalled it with the same results i.e. my burn had sections missing from the .avi file. Ok, so here is what happened.

 

1. I had a pc chips m/b with a pentium processor, sony dvd writers and I used memorex +R's from Sam's Club. All was well as I did many jobs for several years with no problems at all.

 

2. I upgraded to an HP XW9400 workstation with two physical intel processors with two cores each. I launched R2011, immediately accepted some R2011 upgrades then tried to burn a dvd but failed resulting in this post. I just knew some corrupt upgrade got me.<blush>

 

Solution: Using the HP XW9400, I was overdriving my dvd writers ability to write to the dvd's I used. In the pre-burn menu I saw the write speed selected as 18x, I slowed the write speed to 8x and enjoyed a much relieved successful burn.

 

In item 1, I never had to worry about the default speed because of the pentium cpu. The Sony dvd drives could easily keep up with 18x because it wasn't being delivered at 18x.

something, all the time.....

Make sure your optical drive has the latest firmware upgrade, also get yourself some good DVD.s instead of the Memorex.

Don't be so mean, Daithi. In the airforce in my country, that always referred to a Bristol 170 and it was "ten thousand rivets" :lol:

What KIND of avi file? Creator 2011 does not support DivX. Where did you get the file?

Thanks for replying. I created this .avi file with Adobe Premiere Pro like I have done many many times before. I record an event, input tape to premiere pro, edit, export to xxx.avi, launch roxio 2011 pro, author the dvd, deliver to customer. I have been doing this for years. Sonic MyDvd was one of the reasons I bought roxio 2011 pro.

 

Previously when I would put a disk in, roxio would put a disk icon in the lower right corner of the screen. All I had to do was drag and drop for simple backups & saves. The disk icon does not appear now.

 

Thanks, going to uninstall and reinstall. will let you know

It sounds like you were talking about Drag to disc where you had to format the disc. . That is obsolete because so many people had issues with it. Windows 7 has a built in application if you are using W7.

 

There is something similar called Roxio Secure Burn. To get the Roxio Burn Secure burn active, go to the Home screen, and then "Tools" and then "Configure Roxio Burn Deasktop Application" If you want to do more, use "Burn Data Disc -Advanced" aka Creator Classic where you can also do session writing. (Write to disc, don't close it and write some more until it is filled.
