  • Problems with Roxio 6 Easy DVD builder

    With my old Pentium 3 computer I could take the movie images from RCT3 and use Windows Movie Maker to put together the clips into a movie, add music and titles and transistions and create a movie file .wmv on my hard drive. It took forever but it worked. Then I used Roxio 6 DVD builder and created and burned a VCD that plays just like any DVD on my DVD player.

    The new Pentium 4 system also has the same two programs. They both work differently now. But they both work. And the movie file plays fine on the computer on Windows Media Player. But when I put the completed VCD in the DVD player, it won't play the visuals, only the music. The picture stays either on the last frame of the opener from Roxio, or my own opener, or displays a frame from the menu. The music is playing, the DVD player shows VCD on the display window but no movie plays.

    I checked an old VCD I made with the old system and it plays fine, so it isn't the DVD player. I put both discs in the computer and checked the contents of both discs and all the folders and files are the same. The old ones play fine, the new ones don't. And both version of Roxio are 6. Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong here. I don't get it.

    Don't export as a WMV. First of all, WMV compresses horibble, and second of all, you may not have the proper codecs to burn it. Try a DV file.

      DV files are MASSIVE. Considering that this is basically a hobbyist project, standard DVD compliant MPEG-4 should do. However, since he's using Windows Movie Maker for his production work, he doesn't really have a lot of choice in the matter.

      However, he's also only making VCDs, not DVDs, so high resolution or quality isn't exactly a pressing matter (have you watched a VCD? It's sub-VHS quality.)

      Since picking alternative programs and finding out what best works for you is the kind of adventure that can fill a novel, I'll just try and sort this out the easy way by suggetsing you use Nero instead of the Roxio burner. Aside from Toast for Mac, Roxio's CD-R tools just aren't that good.

        THank you for the info. What is strange that the Roxio Program worked just fine with the old, Pentium 3 slow system, but with this new system that has much more speed, storage and hard drive speed it works differently and the main menue that opens only has three choices on it whereas the same program before had about 6 choices. Like I mentioned the old system turned out some pretty good video that I was happy with, and when compared in the computer as to the folders and files on an old disc against a new disc, they are exactly the same as far as folders, what is in them and so on. I just don't understand why the old one works and the new one doesn't.
