Disc Burning Hangs At 97% When Videowave Stops Working

Question

I am using Creator 2012, and when I was trying to burn a DVD the burn project got to 97%, at "record menus", and stopped, giving me the message that VideoWave has stopped working. I uninstalled and then reinstalled Creator 2012, and the problem still exists. In the meantime I copied my movie files to a different computer and used Creator 2010, and was able to complete my project. But I want to be able to use this computer to do DVD projects. I appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

That is a tough one to pin down...

 

Meida is a possibility. The GOOD stuff is called - Verbatim (Singapore) and Taiyo Yuden (JVC)

 

The Rest isn't worth bringing home :huh:

 

What most of us do not do is to try to write directly as you did!

 

We usually "burn" to a File (ISO) or Folder.

 

When that is completes OK, we then burn to disc using Burn Disc Image, in the case of an ISO or Burn Data Disc for a Folder Set.

 

It doesn't really take any longer this way as either way has to be rendered before burning takes place.

Stopping at 97% I have found is very common. How large is the file you are trying to burn ?

When I have a very small DVD I want to burn I many times have found it stops at the 97% mark and

if I wait a long enough time it will finish. (sometime 5 minutes or so) Larger files don't usually do this.

 

Some have said that when the burn of the file has completed (97%) that it takes the extra time to

close the Disk which has to be completed for a DVD.

 

This has been discussed on the forum before and to date there has been no definitive answer.

Try again with a good quality blank media as Jim suggested and then wait for a while to see if it

completed the burn.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. I just tried to burn to an ISO File as Jim suggested, but it did the same thing...hung up at 97% and said that VideoWave had stopped working, and said "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." (That's the message I also got when trying to burn directly to the DVD.) I waited more than 15 minutes, and nothing else happened, so I closed the program. The file size is pretty big...at least, I think it is. The DVD that I made on my other computer is over 2 hours long. Maybe that's the problem...it's too big a file?? Anyway, thanks for your help. I have the feeling that I wasted the money on the program...

That is not the problem but it is a contributor...

 

A 4.7 GB DVD holds 1 hour of HQ Movie...

 

An 8.5 GB, about 2 hours.

 

Exceed these values at your own peril :huh:

 

What you will have to do is pre-render these files you are using in your Project in VideoWave (this can be done in MyDVD by clicking on the Title and selecting Edit Movie)

 

Once this is completed, you would then need to Recreate the Project using the New Files.

 

That should do the trick, provided the time limits are adhered to ;)

Jim...I'm sort of new to this movie making thing (like you didn't guess already!), so I'm not sure what you mean by "pre-render"...I opened a VideoWave file that has some of the video that I used in the DVD I'm trying to make, and didn't see anything about "pre-render". And then I clicked on Help and searched the index for "pre-render" but it didn't show anything. Previously, when making/editing my video, I added many shorter videos, edited each of them, added transitions, etc., to get the finished product. And when I did make the DVD using another computer and Roxio 2010 I selected "fit to DVD" (I think that was the wordage) so that my video, although a little more than 2 hours, did fit on the DVD. It just wasn't as good a quality as I would have liked. Thanks for all your advice and suggestions. Maybe one of these days I'll be better at this thing!

I should have explained my video slang better :lol::D:lol:

 

In VW there is an option to Export As:

That will create a new file (rendered). Pick the "mpeg2 for DVD Best Quality"

Keep notes on the location of these files then use them in your new Production.

As Jim posted, a standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at the best setting (HQ). Any longer and the video has to be compressed and you lose quality. For a video > 2hours there will have to be lots of compression. The Fit-to-disc setting will give the worst quality. Most of us would recommend splitting your project over 2 DVDs.

Jim...thanks for the explanation of what pre-render means! A person needs to learn something new every day, and I sure did!! I'm going to have to work on this...experiment with it...and do another DVD. That may take me a while, though...months, maybe... And thanks to myguggi for the suggestion to make two DVDs...I never even thought about doing that. Probably will on future projects, though. At this point I think I'll mark this as "topic solved"...then in the future if I have more questions I'll come back on here and ask them. Thanks again to Jim, Frank and myguggi for all your hellp!
