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?

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.

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?

Trouble With Movie Maker

My question is this: i was making a movie on windows movie maker, and before the movie was complete, i burned it to a dvd, and then i deleted the file from movie maker and from the computer and from recycling bin. I thought that i would be able to reinsert the dvd into another computer and paste it to movie maker and it would restore it to the editing timeline.

I have found that this was not the case and that i am unable to restore it to movie maker to continue editing by just inserting the dvd. Is there any way that i can transfer the movie back from the dvd to the movie maker so i can edit it properly? And also is there anyway to retrieve deleted items, that were deleted from the recycling bin?

Problem With Movie Maker

I have transferred a dv film from my panasonic nv-gs75 camera to hard drive. The copy is perfect. When this is put into windows live movie maker to edit, lines appear on the time line film and finished film. They appear to be irregular lines that might tie up with camera movement. I had no trouble with xp windows movie maker. Help please. The film is avi when transferred. It is an hour film with no sound or sync problems. If the raw film is watched after initial transfer all is perfect and i assume you can not alter the format when dragging into the edit side of wlmm. Any clip of any size immediately has these lines even before the edit starts.

Cannot Save Changes On Live Movie Maker

I have windows movie maker. When i save a movie and name it, and try to close out the window, it asks me if i want to save changes. I can't 'not' save changes, but when i do, and rename, somehow, several videos go into one video. I save, then name and when i try to close out, it has that pop up asking me if i want to save changes. If i cancel or say no, it comes back, so i change. Does someone understand what i'm doing wrong?

Movie Maker Stopped Running

I downloaded the windows live movie maker for my inspiron 15 laptop after installing windows 7. Prior to that, i had been using a windows movie maker when my laptop was using vista. I had no problems making movies during my brief vista experience. Shortly after downloading wlmm, i created a movie from still photos. I planned on using the movie as a teaching tool in my art classroom. I saved the movie project so i could come back the next day to make the movie.

When i returned the next day, i selected open project, found the project, clicked on it, then got the message that windows mm had stopped running, and a solution would be found. But none was. This happened repeatedly. I have been unable to open the project. What could i have done wrong?

Movie Maker Audio Problem

I'm trying to make a video, with loads of different clips of videos, but the music that i've chosen to go with it is really messed up. Playing the whole video through, from start to wherever i've got up to, the audio is perfect, but when i go to edit a specific part of the video, and need to see if the music goes with the clips, the audio that plays is a completely different part of the song. I've made loads of video's like this, and this is the first time i've experienced this problem.
