Music For Slideshow On Dvd Maker


I am making a video/picture dvd using windows dvd maker. I am trying to add music to the slideshow part of the dvd. When i go to add music it brings me to my music library, then i click that and it brings me to itunes, then i click that and it shows all the albums in my library but when i click on an album to finally get to the song it says the folder is empty. When i look it up on my computer it is there. I am assuming i need to change the file type or something but i am not too computer savy. Please help asap. Need this for a birthday present for tomorrow (1/15/10).

Unable To Play Slideshow On Dvd

Problems putting slide show using windows live movie maker on a dvd

I have a brand new 6 week old toshiba satellite a500 series laptop computer -everything was installed on computer by techs at best buy.

I created a slide show on the computer using photographs from a recent vacation. Everything plays really well on the computer without a problem. However, now i want to transfer this slide show over to a memorex dvd-r disk so that i can share it with family and friends on other computers. Everything seemed to work correctly without a problem, but when i put the disk into the drive to watch it i got an error message which read "this file cannot be played back".

Computer task bar says "dvd rw drive (d:) blank"

Further down on the same screen though it says "files currently on disc (1)

Florida movie type: wlmp file size 418kb

So it does seem that the movie transferred over to the dvd, but did i do something wrong? I just dragged the movie over to roxie. Was that piece of it done incorrectly?

Please help i am very frustrated. I have had several people try to help me in the past without success. Friend from work is telling me how easy it is, not true for me. Fyi- i can do the basics when it comes to the computer, but not very computer savvy.

Windows Dvd Maker Won't Recognize Dvd Burner

Windows dvd maker won't recognize a dvd burner when a internet usb drive is hooked up to computer, how do we fix this?

Dvd Maker Cannot Create The Dvd

I'm getting this like everyone else on a windows 7 64 bit. The dvd burner is turned on, working, etc. I have 251 gb of free space. The problem is that this error message is so worthless, i.e. No real specifics like "out of space" , "codec error", "invalid input file", "hey, i just don't like you"  . There is nothing to work with. The input is a home movie avi which plays just fine in windows media center. The "just die for no apparent reason" point seems to be 38% in windows media center and 17% in windows dvd maker and the blank disk is kicked out.

If nothing else microsoft ought to build a fix that at least dumps some useful error messages about the failed process so there's a direction to take. At least under dvd maker the status was "encoding" and it dies during that. Windows media center tells you nothing, but the vague error. Oh, yes i did try again after a fresh re-boot and am running nothing else. Same problem.

Dvd Maker

Win 7. I own this dvd. So i thought i would give this a try before looking elsewhere. "Regular" dvds have about a 4gb or so capacity and so i loaded up about 4 ripped vob files totaling 3. 5gb into the program and it told me it was over capacity. It seems that the program only recognizes 150 minutes. One vob file of only 1gb takes up about 120 minutes. It seems the program will not add files by size but rather by 150 minutes max.

Is this a known limitation of the program or did i do it wrong. Do i need to convert the vob files first in order to fit more on the dvd? Btw the vob files loaded up very nicely, played well and i was able to add transitions etc. But i need a program that will let me write back to disc the 4 + gb capacity of the disc. Tia.

Dvd Maker Screws Up

I have a brand new toshiba satellite that is preloaded with windows 7. I was so happy to learn that it had windows 7 dvd maker available. Once i started to load some photos for a slide show i went to preview the image slideshow. When the images began to transitions from one photo to the next and pan in and zoom out, some images would decided to kind of skip on the vertical edges. It was almost as though the images where to much for my computer to handle, but i have no other skips with any other dvd maker program, nor when i watch a movie.

What gives?
Any other people seeing this problem?

Previews Problem With Dvd Maker

I made a dvd with windows movie maker and modified it with the options. I did not burn correctly, in fact it made my video choppy and i lost some videos, meaning some of the videos i added did not come out. On the menu format i selected it shows displays of some of the videos i added to my dvd but does not play in the video itself. How can i get the videos that are on the feature menu. I chose the menu style call reflections. On the reflections boxes is where my videos are playing as a preview but not on the dvd i made. How can i get those previews out of there?

Copy Disc Using Dvd Maker

Ok. Every time i go to windows dvd maker and i try to copy a dvd i made i run into several probs. First, i  have to select "all the files" because nothing shows up under "media/video/picture files" in the d drive otherwise. After selecting everything from my dvd, some of the files still get rejected from being transferred anyway!. Then when i go to click "burn" and it says i need to put in a "blank disc" which i do. After it burns for a minute and gets to about 70% it says cannot burn anymore because of a "invalid pointer. " What is that? Can you not copy a disc using windows dvd maker? If so how?

Dvd Maker Encoding Error

I'm trying burn some files but the encoding always stops at 0. 6% before generating the following error.

[Window title]
Windows dvd maker
[Main instruction]
Cannot create the dvd
[Content]
An error occurred when burning the dvd.

[Ok]

A bit more background info:

- I'm running windows 7 pro
- I haven't got any other burning software (such as nero) installed
- There are 11 . Vob files to burn
- That's 106 of 150 minutes
- There aren't any effects or customized menu

Has anyone got any suggestions? Searching on the internet shows that there are people who are experiencing the same problems, but i'm not even sure what codecs are and how to check whether i have the right ones.

Audio Problem With Dvd Maker

After months of trouble free operation i suddenly find no audio on all dvds burned with windows dvd maker. Using windows media player i can view and hear the files ok directly from my hd. I can also play the files ok when i select preview as part of the windows dvd maker process. I do not have windows movie maker installed. I am running oem windows 7 home edition. I thought this may have coincided with the use of proshow gold so i uninstalled that program. I also uninstalled nero 9 but the problem persists.

Bug Report Dvd Maker

I have windows 7 home premium x64 with windows dvd maker file version: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 dated 07/13/2009 9:39 pm. When adding titles to be burned, dvd maker shows a time of 150 minutes on the dvd. It can not add mpg files correctly. A mpeg with 1:31 and another mpeg with 45 minutes and another mpeg 14 minutes shows 149 out of 150 minutes. This is incorrect since the blank dvd can only hold 120 minutes. Encoding starts and then there is an error. Nothing is written. I can create the dvd with 1:31 + 14 minutes dvd for 105 minutes.

Dvd Maker Problem During The Burn Process

I have a sony dvd camcorder (mini disc)and sony vegas movie studio 6 software. Since getting a new laptop with windows 7 i've been having problems with vegas movie studio (i think it may not be fully compatible with windows 7). But it does manage to render my videos to a recognizable format (mpg) so i turned to windows dvd maker, which looks like a great and simple program to use initially. But like many messages on this forum i too had a problem during the burn process - mine only gets to approx. 4% and then comes up with an error message (but the error message displays no detail). What can i do? Is there an alternative? Can i burn a mini disc onto a dvd-r for example? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dvd Maker Avi Files Corrupt

I have just found out about windows dvd maker and decided to give it a go. I tried to insert a file and found out it wouldn't allow me to select an mp4 so i decided to render each scene of my dvd into avi format instead of mp4 but as soon as i try and select them i get this error message:

"0 files were successfully added. 1 file could not be added. The file c:usersedwarddesktopuntitled. Avi is not a supported file type and cannot be imported. "

I installed a codec to try and get it to work but previous to this it came up with a similar error saying that the file might be corrupt.

What can i do as its really annoying me :( i have rendered the video as a wmv and it works but it annoys me because it isn't as good quality as the avi that i rendered.

Movie Maker Dvd Failed To Burn

Recently did a clean install win7 pro. Windows movie maker was included. I successfully created and saved a movie with wmm and set up to burn a dvd. Got the error msg: dvd failed to burn. Troubleshooting procedures: updated dvd drivers (they were current), reduced burn speed to slow, there are no video filters listed. Using verbatim dvd-r. Gateway multimedia fx530 2 yrs old. Raid 5. Lot's of disc space. It's a multimedia machine. 2 gb memory. 6 minute movie. I've scrapped several discs while changing speed and checking settings. This error msg appears at the last 1% of the process (progress bar).

Dvd Maker Aspect Ratio Problem

I am using the windows 7 dvd maker tool, and am experiencing some major issues. I have a widescreen formatted avi file i am trying to burn onto a dvd. When i import the video, it doesn't matter which aspect ratio i choose the finished dvd is the same. Menu shows video correctly, but the movie part is squeezed into a 4:3 with black bars on all four sides.

It seems to be that windows dvd maker does not recognize the aspect ratio of the avi file imported. Although the avi file loads in media player in the widescreen format, the file listing in dvd maker clearly shows in 4:3 aspect ratios for the same file, imay sure that windows 7 dvd maker is set up correctly on (16:9).

I have wasted several dvds attempting to use multiple configurations within dvd maker and none have been successful. The dvd always burns in 4:3 aspect ration regardless of the settings chosen under the options menu. This is definitely a bug in the program.

Unknown Dvd Maker Error Message

Here is a frustrating problem i am having with windows dvd maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to dvds for various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 dvds successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, i get to a point about 0. 3 to 0. 4 percent encoded when i get an error message that the dvd cannot be made due to an unspecified error.

Every fresh, new, out of the package disk i try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, i've just done a few successfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do i need to do to fix it?

Jewelcase Maker In Nti Media Maker 8

I am having trouble with the jewelcase maker program in nti media maker 8. It tells me there is a problem and has to close; that it will notify me if a solution can be found. I insert a picture on the front of the cd cover just fine. I was only able to add the text for a few titles and guess what? Yep "there was a problem and it had to close" now i can't save additional text to the cover. It lets me type a few lines - maybe- but then when i go to save it tells me blah blah and then shuts down.

Also when i made a test print of what i did manage to save, i got one print and 5 blank pages. I chose to print only 1 copy and that's what the print window said before i hit print. Once it started to print the printer said 6 copies- with one being printed and 5 blank i'm running windows 7home premium on an acer aspire notebook that is less than 2 months old and this is the only problem i have. Can anyone help me with this please?

Slideshow Gadget Not Working

I'm a brand new w7 user and was trying out the gadgets. I placed the calender and sideshow on my desktop and they worked fine. The slide show gadget appeared to default to the windows wallpaper which was fine as i didn't have any pics transferred into the computer yet.

After i placed a few pictures in a new folder and pointed the slide show gadget to it, it utilized the photos just fine. I moved around the folders and files for a while while i messed around and learned the library function.

Now i cannot make the slide show bring up those pictures, even when i re-point it to the folders that i want it to utilize. It defaults back to the windows wallpaper and the additional wallpaper folder i created and added to.

Also, the timer and transition function disappeared. I have already done the uninstall and the reinstall gadget within the control panel to no avail. Anyone have a possible solution?

I drag my selection to burn list, click on start burn and i get a message in a box saying "windows media player encountered a problem while burning the file to the disc. " Pressing the "web help" button brought me here. How can i find out what the problem is and how do i fix it. I have made several attempts to copy this music. Either nothing is on the cd or it just does not play on a cd player.

Ripping Music Files

I am using windows 7 home premium, 64 bit. Is it possible to store the same file at different bit rates? Wmp seems to automatically replace previously ripped, identical tracks. I want to see what difference the rates make to audio quality on an mp3 player.

Also, i am thinking about transferring all my cds to my pc (or a portable hard drive). I would wish to do so at the maximum lossless quality.could i then sync tracks from the ripped files to an mp3 player at a lower bit rate (to maximize the space on it)?  Or, would i have to burn to cd and then rip at a lower quality if i wanted to do that (which, depending on the answer above, might mean losing the previously ripped lossless files to the low bit rate ones and having to re-rip the original cds, negating the point of the original storage).

If wmp does automatically replace previously ripped files, is there a work-around solution to enable me to 1) compare the same files at different bit rates and 2) store lossless files and sync from them at different bit rates without replacing them?

My Music Folder Missing

I have just installed windows 7 64 bit. After i completed the install and migrated my settings to the new computer from a vista install on my old pc, i tried to move the my music folder to a folder on a network drive. No idea what happened, but there is no longer a my music folder available - the one on the network drive doesn't have a location tab and i cannot locate it elsewhere.

In the library, nothing. Probably for an entirely separate reason it won't allow me to add the folder on the network drive to the library because it is not indexed.

I can see the reference to the my music folder in hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftwindowscurrentversionexploreruser shell folders, and it looks just like the other default personal folders there but otherwise no trace of it. All other folders are ok.

Can someone guide me how to simply restore the my music folder as a default?

Media Player Cannot Find Music

My problem is similar to the problem that amanda wise was experiencing except that i am running windows 7. After uninstalling and reinstalling windows 7 for a different problem, i lost my library in wmp. The files were backed up to an external hard drive. Now i cannot get wmp to go and get the files from the external drive. I installed musicmatch from an old disk and it had no problem finding all of my music. I can rip music from a cd with wmp but, a lot of my files were from vinyl and and it is time consuming to replace all of them. I prefer to use wmp because musicmatch will no longer support anything on the web.

Media Center Cannot Find Music

I have 100+ cd's stored as wav files under my music. They were ripped using exact audio copy and accuraterip. I have repeatedly pointed media center at the directory and instructed it to find my music files but it has not found one. There are currently 102 artist directories with close to 200 albums and more than 2500 songs in my music directory. Media center cannot find my video files either but it had no problem finding my pictures.

How do i get media center to see my music and video files?
