Question

I am planning on moving VideoWave and MyDVD files that were used to create slide shows with Sound to a external hard drive for the purpose of creating additional space on my internal hard drive. Which of the files associated with these two programs need to be moved while preserving the ability to access them in the future to modify or add to the slide shows and then burn additional DVDs?

Your post is not clear on what files you are really talking about.

 

Are you talking about moving the source files that you used in your project? If yes then you need to move all the files of course and you will then have to relink them to their new location.

 

I have found that it is always best to gather all the project source files into one folder. Then if you ever have to "move" the project files, you just move the folder to its new location and then relink to that folder.

 

If you are talking about files that are part of the VW of myDVD program then you can't move them.

Burning additional DVDs is easy, just burn the project to an ISO file or to a folder set.

 

Saving a moved project would have been easy if you had kept all the resources in one folder on your computer and used that folder to build the project. Now it will be a little harder but you may still be able to do it. Make a folder and put copies of everything that you used to build the project in it (music,videos, images,etc) . When you go to edit the file bring it back to your computer , you will get a lot of not found errors, just point to that folder. You may still have to search for some of the resources.

Unfortunately, just burning an additional copy of the poject isn't the objective. Unless of course after creating a ISO image file one is able to add to and modify the project, then that would be the most expedient. My limited understanding of the ISO is that it can't be modified after it is created.

 

Yes, at this point it appears that it would be necessary to move all the source files for the projects. Again, unfortunately, I have not put all of the images used in the three slide shows into 3 respective project folders. That is, the images used in these slide show projects were selected from the 4 folders (over 1,000 digital images to choose from)into which the images were originally downloaded from the camera, and added to the slide shows. I'm not that good at choosing beforehand which digital images I want to use in a particular slide show, nor are the digital images originally selected always retained. The files created by VideoWave and MyDVD are located in a common folder, except for the music and individual digital images.

 

To answer the question about whether the objective is to move the VideoWave and MyDvd program files, that is not the intent.

If you did not retain the original images then you can't reproduce the project. You ould have to "extract" the images from the files created by Videowave or myDVD and they may well be lower quality.

 

You don't really need to know exactly which images you want to use beforehand when creating a "project folder". I simply copy the image file to the folder as I proceed with the project.

Perhaps for future reference (or maybe you had this set)

 

In MyDVD, project settings, you can select to archive the images (only) you used for the project. A folder will be created with copies of the original images. If you make an ISO file or a DVD, you can get the original images. Your project would have to start from scratch but at least you would have access to the images you used. I think the same thing will happen if you select folder set. See image

 

By the way, you can make a DVD and add extra folders to it to contain the images and music you used. Look elsewhere in these forums for more information.

Thanks for the input and help. Since it is still possible to burn another 3 dvds, I will use the Project Settings and select archive photos. Since there are just 3 audio tracks, one each for the 3 dvds created, the audio can easily be found and added. It was the numerous photos that was of concern. Thanks again for the help.
