Don't click the topic solved button please!

Agreed!!!

 

(due to Board Software glitch, it makes your post invisible :wacko: )

 

For your problem, How Big is the total time for your Production and what size is the disc?

 

Hint ~ 4.7 GB disc hold 1 hour and an 8.5 GB, 2 hours...

 

If you have a Project that greatly exceeds those limits, then it does take forever because each frame (30 for 1 second) has to be loaded, reduced and resaved. Depending on your CPU that can take some time!

Not so far. I went to the Acer web site and looked for that model Aspire 7751 and there was no such computer. Are there any letters or other numbers?

 

At this point, since you can't do a screen shot (althought the instructions are there), go ahead and get the dxdiag.exe file and attach it. The instructions are in the link I provided above. It will give us a lot more information especially about the current condition of that laptop. We can get things like the video driver information, the status of your hard drives etc.

 

By the way, a DVD-R usability is not an issue for the program; it is the issue for the DVD burner you have. I Googled for it and found several instances where it didn't work correctly for burning DVD in general. I don't think that is your problem however.

Can someone tell me if DVD-R is useable for this product? I used the record, edit and save. I clicked on burn (export). After 3 hours it did 65%. I cancelled it. Is this time normal.

 

Thanks for any help

 

Getting back to your original question.

 

Yes a DVD-R is OK for your computer and for the program.

 

Yes, you computer may be a little on the slow side. In the past, encoding and burning was a 4 or 5 to 1 time ratio. Yours looks like it is a little slower than that.

 

Get one or two good quality DVD RW for testing. You don't want to use these for permanant work but they are good for temporary tests.

 

The first thing to try is to change the encoding and rendering from "Hardware" to "software" or vice versa depending on where it is set now.

Let us know if it is faster.

 

Also make sure you are not doing anyhting else which the project is encoding and burning. Don't do e-mail, surf the net, etc. In fact, try disconnecting from the internat, shutting off your anti-virus and starting the encoding when you don't plan on using the computer for awhile.

 

With a little luck, you may cut down that 6 to 1 to 3 or 4 to 1. Only the newest faster CPU and video cards (GPU) can get to 1 to 1 or faster.

 

Let us know if the suggestions abouve help.

Hi Just to let you know that after 6 1/2 hrs the only thing on the DVD+RW is:

  • METADATA.DAT DAT FILE 1024KB
  • PLASMADATA.DAT - DAT FILE 22KB
  • PROJECTDATA.DMSD - DMSD FILE 117 KB

I can't even open this file.

Should I just take this back to the store and get a refund. It's definitely not user friendly.

I have no idea what you did to create a DVD containing those files, it is certainly not what you would get when you create a video DVD.

If you bought it at a store you most likely will not get a refund on opened software.

 

Can you list the exact steps you are taking to create the DVD?

 

Also what do you mean by the comment "I can't even open this file."? or the comment "I really don't know what happened with the above email." from post #17.

 

You may think that Roxio is "unfriendly", you should try some of the other packages and you will quickly change your mind.

Are you packing 2 Hours onto a 4.7 GB Disk!

 

Since they were only intended to hold 1 hour of video, that is one reason why it might be taking so long...

 

I would really expect your PC to do a 1:1 or close to it.

 

If you have an DVD RW, try a 1 hour Project, @ HQ and see what it can do.

 

Maywest has a rather "slow" computer and I would not expect a 1:1 or even close to it
