The file is saved on an external hard drive so i'm not sure if this might be the problem. Pls can you assist with this problem as I would like to complete this project. Thanx. Power Director gets to 75% on creating titles and then freezes. This program has been a nightmare.

I have power director as well but what I do after I produce the movie is I use any video converter I downloaded it for free http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/

I convert the video to DVD VIDEO NTSC MOVIE (.MPG)
then I burn it with nero software (I believe they have a free trial) mine came with my burner.
I found that I got a clearer movie without jumping like I had with the powerdirector burn program.

This is what worked for me.

LOOK IN TOOLS AND SETTINGS OR HELP AND FIND THE UPDATE BUTTON AND UPDATE THE SOFTWARE. PLUS YOU ARE RIGHT THAT IT MAY BE PROBLEM USING EXTERNAL DRIVE.(IS IT USB 1.0?)..COPY YOUR FILE TO A TEMPORARY FOLDER ON YOUR DESKTOP AND BROWSE TO THAT FOLDER WITH POWER DIRECTOR.

My guess is the Pinnacle software isn't writing correctly. Read this from the Pinnacle support site.

Use this FAQ to troubleshoot any problems where Studio is failing during the process of burning the DVD.


  1. INSTALL THE LASTEST PATCH:

If you have Studio version 12, download the latest version here.

If you have Studio version 11, download the latest version here.


Note: Studio 11 patches will only patch a previous install of Studio 11.


If you have an older version of Studio (Studio 9, 10, or 11 etc), it is advised for you to update to the current Studio software. The current version is Studio 12. Click Here to go to the Studio 12 Upgrade page.


How to download and install a patch:

  • When downloading the patch make a note of where it is being saved to. We recommend saving the patch to the desktop.
  • Before installing the patch, make sure that you do not have any other programs running. Studio must not be running.
  • Once it is fully downloaded, double-click on the patch to begin the installation.
  • Follow any on-screen prompts to complete the installation. Reboot the computer after applying the patch.


  1. MAKE DISC SETTING, SAFE MODE BURN OPTION: In Studio, click on Setup -> Make Disc. Under the box marked Burn Options, select "Safe Mode: create disc content and then burn" by clicking on the radio button in front of the setting and then click OK. While troubleshooting this problem, always use this setting.


  1. RESTART STUDIO: Shut down Studio, then relaunch it. Try to create the DVD again using the safe mode setting above.


  1. RESTART THE COMPUTER: Try opening the door of the DVD burner. If it won't open, then shut down Studio, then restart the computer. Launch Studio and try to create the DVD again using the safe mode setting.


  1. MEDIA:


BLANK MEDIA IN THE DRIVE: Make sure that there is a blank, write-once media or rewriteable media in the DVD burner.

TYPE OF DVD: Make sure that your DVD burner supports the media you use. As for any problem with burning a DVD, we recommend customer use rewriteable media to reduce the number of wasted DVDs when they have to troubleshoot a failure while burning DVDs. In this case, if you have only used rewriteable media, (RW) we would also recommend trying to use a write once (-/+ R) DVD and erasing the RW media.

BRAND OF DVD: Pinnacle recommends using a name brand of DVD, i.e. Sony, Apple, Memorex, etc. Also we recommend trying a DVD from a different manufacturer to see if the problem is related to the brand of DVD that is being used.

NOTE: Check with the following site to find information on the media being used.


http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia


  1. LOWER THE WRITE SPEED: In the Make Disc settings try lowering the Write Speed to the lowest possible setting.


  1. GET THE LATEST FIRMWARE: Ensure that the DVD burner being used has the latest firmware update from the burner manufacturer.


  1. CHECK DISC SPEED: Make sure that the disc media speed (printed on the media or on the media box) is compatible with the DVD burner. Some burners may not work with media that has a higher maximum supported burn speed. For example, if the burner being used supports 4x disc media, do not use 16x disc media.


  1. DELETE AUXILIARY FILES: Try deleting the Auxiliary Files for the current project. To do this, go to File -> Delete Auxiliary Files and select "Delete auxiliary files for current project." Press OK and try to re-render and burn the project.


  1. ALWAYS RE-ENCODE: Go to the Make Disc settings and check the box called "Always re-encode entire movie".


  1. SAFE MODE: Try burning with the safe mode option selected. To do this, go to the Make Disc settings. In the Burn options are select the option called: "Safe mode: create disc content and then burn.". This step does not apply if you are using Studio 12 since this is the default burn method.


  1. CREATE A DISC IMAGE: In Studio, click on Setup -> Make Disc. Under the box marked Burn Options, select "Create disc content but don't burn" by clicking on the radio button in front of the setting and then click OK. Then click the Create disc button in the Make Movie section to begin the image creation process.

    If the image is not created, it is likely that the problem is a Render problem rather than a burn problem. Click Here to see the FAQ on Render problems.

    If the disc image file is created successfully, burn the disc from the new disc image by selecting "Burn from previously created disc content" in Burn Options.

    NOTE: When troubleshooting all burn or playback issues, it is recommended to use rewritable media to avoid wasting discs.

We directly cannot copy a file from hard drive to DVD, we need a DVD writer to burn it on the DVD disk. Hard drive is a removeable device and we can read and write data as we need but DVD is a non-removeable disk and we can only write it for once, the process of writing or copying file to the DVD through a DVD-writer is called burning.

There are many different kinds of DVD’s, and knowing what kind you would like to copy is important before making the decision to burn. The process used to burn DVD’s usually depends on the kind of DVD but three common types are used the most when burning. They are: Burning Data DVD’s, Storing Multimedia Files on a DVD, and burning Commercial DVD’s. We’ll take a look at these three methods below.

Burning Data to DVD’s
The easiest way to burn DVD’s is by copying everyday normal data. This includes ordinary files like documents, spreadsheets, and database files and is the easiest method because no special decryption software or regionally specific encoding is needed. Any computer with a DVD drive will easily play these burned DVD’s.
It is a good idea to download some of the multiple free DVD burning programs available to test them out. You may also want to check out commercial DVD burning software available for purchase. Most newly purchased computers already come with a DVD burner and burning software installed and ready to use. All you have to do is start the DVD burning software, make sure to select DATA DVD as the type of DVD to be burned, then follow the prompts. A full length DVD contains around 4.7GB of data and can be burned in around 20 minutes with an average DVD burner. Higher speed DVD burners will be able to burn your data much more quickly.

Burning Multimedia Files to DVD’s
While the process of burning audio and video (multimedia) files to a DVD is basically the same as burning data DVD’s, multimedia DVD’s require additional thought before copying. This is because you will most likely want to add some extra features when burning a precious wedding video or converting old VHS tapes to a friendlier and longer lasting format.

The DVD authoring tools available today make burning multimedia DVD’s with a professional touch a breeze. Convenient features like Chapters (to skip to a specific section of longer videos), Menu pages (perfect for a wedding video), and Titles (to index multiple TV shows or videos already stored on your computer) gives everyone the ability to burn polished DVD’s easily. Subtitles that you create yourself can even be added by some DVD burning software and Digital Rights Management (DRM) may also be available. DRM allows you to create commercial grade videos that are tough for others to easily copy to another DVD.

Burning Commercial DVD’s
Burning copies of commercial DVD’s is one of the primary uses of DVD burners and is enjoyed by many people who own them. While it may not be illegal to burn copyrighted material for your own use, in most areas of the world it is illegal to make copies of commercial DVD’s to sell or give away to others. You can still burn copyrighted material, including commercial DVD’s, if the burned copy is for personal use. Some uses may include creating a DVD archive or backup, or having an extra copy available for use in the computer or car’s DVD player.

A commercial DVD can be copied by many tools, but decoding software specifically designed to remove (”crack”) digital rights management will be needed in addition to a regular DVD burner and DVD burning software. Besides copying the commercial DVD’s data and decoding any digital rights management, it is also important to note that most of the time you will need to shrink the file first.

The majority of commercial DVD’s hold between 7 and 8.4GB worth of data and are known as dual layer DVD’s. A normal blank DVD will hold 4.7GB of data, which means the larger amount of data on a commercial DVD needs to be compressed before it will fit on a blank DVD. After a commercial DVD has been cracked and the files compressed, ordinary DVD burning software can be used to burn the new DVD. Simply start your favorite DVD burning program then follow the prompts.

Since the process of copying commercial DVD’s can seem daunting to someone doing it for the first time, several companies have developed suites of DVD copying programs that simplify the process. These software tools will usually crack and decode the DVD, compress the files small enough to fit on a blank DVD, and can even add extra features before burning everything onto a normal DVD.

Now that you know how to burn DVD’s, you’re well on your way to burning your first one. Start by checking out free DVD burning programs as mentioned earlier, or just download one and jump right in. Remember to bookmark this article as reference should you run into any problems.

Have fun and happy DVD burning!

Best Regards

NOT SRE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS NEED TO BURN DVD FROM ANOTHER DVD AND


Before you decide to burn a DVD, it is important to know what kind of DVD you would like to burn. The type of DVD will usually determine the process you use to go about burning. The three most common types of DVDs to burn are Data DVD's, Multimedia Files to a DVD and making a copy and burning a commercial DVD. The burning process will be determined by the type of data you want to burn. You could do three possible actions:
  1. Burn Data to a DVD
  2. Burn Multimedia Files to a DVD
  3. Copy and Burn a Commercial DVD
Burning Data to a DVD Ordinary data such as documents, spreadsheets, database files and backup files require only general DVD burning programs. The data that you burn can be viewed on any type of computer with a DVD drive. Popular DVD burning software programs include Nero 9 and Super DVD Creator 9.8.8. You will need to purchase or download any of the DVD burning software titles that are available on the market. For some computers that are purchased new, DVD burning software already comes installed and configured for your machine and DVD burner. You just need to open up your DVD burner software, choose to burn a data DVD and follow the instructions. You can usually burn a full length DVD (about 4.7 GB of data) in less than 20 minutes and even quicker with high speed DVD burners. Burning Multimedia Files to a DVD Multimedia files are usually larger files that include video either recorded from a TV set, camcorder or digital camera or downloaded from the internet. You may also want to convert an old VHS tape to a more user friendly DVD. With today's DVD authoring tools, you can easily burn multimedia files and give them professional features such as adding a title or menu page or cataloguing many TV shows that you have already saved on your computer's hard drive. Some DVD burning software packages even allow you to add subtitles that you can create yourself. You can add DRM (digital rights management) with the help of your burning software, if you are creating commercial videos that you would want to make difficult to copy. Copying and Burning a Commercial DVD Many people use their DVD burner to burn copies of commercial DVDs. In most parts of the world, it is illegal to copy a commercial DVD and sell or distribute it. However, you may want to make a copy for archiving purposes. There are many tools that can copy a commercial DVD. However, apart from the normal DVD burner and DVD burning software, you will also need special software that can decode or crack the digital rights management. It is also important to note that besides cracking the code and copying the data of the commercial DVD, you may need to shrink the file. Most commercial DVDs are dual layer and have between 7 and 8.4 GB of data. These files must be compressed to fit on a normal 4.7 GB DVD. Once you have cracked the commercial DVD and compressed it, you can use ordinary DVD burning software to burn your DVD.

When attempting to burn project in MY DVD8 an error appears 800402007 while encoding. I am therefor unable to burn disc


Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:
  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.


If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

      Tip: Either of the above options are a great way to not only back up your projects, but make multiple copies to reduce encoding time!

Code error


Before following the suggestions given below please make sure that you have the latest firmware for your DVD burner drive. Please contact your vendor or visit the manufacturer's website for the latest updates.

Please follow the steps mentioned below to resolve the issue:

1) Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. Then empty Recycle Bin.

2) Defragment your hard drive. DVD video files are very large and can quickly fill your hard drive to capacity. A fragmented hard drive can cause problems during DVD burning. Make sure to defragment your drive(s) regularly.

3) To avoid any compatibility issues, please close all other software and utility applications including virus scans, screen saver and instant messaging software before you launch PowerDirector.

4) Increase Virtual memory :

1. Right click on "MyComputer"
2. Select Properties -> Advance
3. Click on "settings" under Performance.
4. Select "Advance"
5. Click on "change" under Virtual memory.
6. Select "Custom" and enter initial value as "512" and Max value as "3096".

NOTE: If your existing settings are higher than recommended then leave them as before.

5) Please check whether the drive where you have installed Power Director software has enough space on it. At least 15 GB of free space is required and recommended while burning a DVD.

Now, try to burn the DVD at low burning speed.

If the issue still persists, try to uninstall other CD/DVD burning software like Nero, EasyCD Creator, Direct CD etc. Two burning software installed on same computer are known to cause conflict due to common files in them.

Also disable the XP built-in burning software. To disable the Windows built-in burning software:
- Open My Computer.
- Right-click your CD-RW or DVD drive and click Properties.
- Select the Recording tab.
- Remove the check mark from the 'Enable CD recording on this drive' check box.
- Click OK.

Also make sure that the total size of the video does not exceed the disc limit. (It is recommended that the total size should be less than 4.3 GB)

Now, close all other software and utility applications and then try the 'Create a DVD folder' option in the burning options screen and let us know of the result.

If the DVD folder is burned successfully, then the issue is burner specific and not software specific.

If the issue still not resolved, you may need to reinstall the Power Director software. Uninstall other burning softwares and then reinstall Power Director.

Follow the steps given below to reinstall your PowerDirector. Before installing your program, please close your MSN messenger, since we found that MSN messenger my lock some installation programs.

i) Uninstall PowerDirector software:

a.)Start--> Programs -->Cyberlink PowerDirector --> Uninstall PowerDirector

b.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

c.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

d)Reboot your PC.

ii) Reinstall PowerDirector. (NOTE: Before installation please close MSN Messenger, if open)

Now try again to 'Create a DVD folder'.

Go ahead with burning DVD only if the DVD folder is created successfully and without errors.
