Question about CyberLink PowerProducer 2 for PC

Drive or disk not ready

Every time I try to burn a specific project, a 1,5h video, avi, I get as far as the burn step, where I always get the "This drive or disk is not ready" error message. The DVD is recordable and empty, brand new, the drive is also working otherwise. I can use it with Nero for instance, but not with PP2G.

    I have the same problem. I've gone to the Dell site and updated the DVD firmware and Intel chipset drivers. I've right-clicked on the drive in explorer, gone to Properties and then Recording tab and enabled recording - this fixed my CD write problem, but so far not the DVD one!

    Heard it may be that too many different DVD writers conflict?

    I have the same problem when trying to copy my daughter's Nativity play. I just get the message 'Either this drive or this disc is not Ready' whenever I try to burn a DVD.

    I have tried burning by following the tasks in the 'Produce Movie Disk' option, and I have also tried creating an image in here and then using the Disc Utilities to 'Burn disc from image', but just get the same.

    Everything up to this point is fine, and the movie is great - I just can't create a disc from it!

    I have tried DVD+RW and DVD-R discs but it doesn't make any difference.

    Same steps taken and very same problem! I didn't have this trouble before. What is wrong with Power Producer Gold?

What burner are you using? if your burner is a DVD -RW and using +RW media, you might have a situation there. Check your media vs device.

Are you running the process direct to bluray? or across a network? If so, it could be a problem with disk/network the not being fast enough disk or buffering.

Try doing your conversion to an ISO. Then burning the disk from the ISO.

Mysterious "ring" on burned DVD causes playback to freeze.

Is the image preponderantly encoded in PAL? Majority PAL and some NTSC? Or fully NTSC? Used transcoding presets? Transcoded project before you built to DVD? Note: Always run "TEST" before burning (to save plastic trees)? Determined whether system or project is faulty? Tested the DVD drive? Tried burning using another application? Closed all background-running resource hogs and applications? Did the project size increase the capacity size of the disk? Used a lower write speed? Disabled startup items and services? DMA: enabled? Updated Windows? Media compatibility? System requirements attained? Updated your application? Solved the issue(s); then write it down and share it with others. Still having issues? Revert back to the computer's factory settings and rebuild, upgrade, or invest in a high-end system and buy the full version of Nero 9, with all the plug-in features....and so forth. If time is money, the latter solution is your best bet. If money is an issue, then it requires trench warfare - that is, much research, deductive reasoning and time investment to isolate your specific problem...start by analyzing your source, and then your target...cause/effect'll conquer all problems, eventually...political machinations aside.

How do I upload videos?

Hi Elisa, I was having the same problem with my MAC. I have a G5 tower. After much searching, here's what I found:
If you open up Image Capture and have this open when your camera is connected. You will be able to download everything, including AVI files. Once you've downloaded the file, open up iMovie. Import the file into iMovie. Do what you need to do and then you can export it as a Quicktime movie.

Sansui VRDVD4000 format

I do not believe this player plays AVI videos, not to mention whatever codec you are trying to use.

Download VSO ConvertXtoDVD and convert your AVI files to DVD and then burn them to DVD-R (NOT DVD+R), the 4.7GB discs (single-layer).

This process takes a very long time, depending on the size of the movies you are converting, some 1-2 hours, some 8-24 hours.

I suggest buying a Philips DVD Player that plays DivX and XviD AVI files, they seem to be the best. You can just burn the AVI to any disc and it will play. [Most popular seems to be Philips DVP 642]
