I lost all my work :(

Hello :D
I created a piece using Windows Movie Maker. When I tried to transfer it to a CD/DVD it said that the file could not be copied to CD as it is not supported. When i clicked 'retry' the same message window apeared but this time all my pictures were appearing as big red crosses. I closed all my running windows and went back into WMM step by step and still... big red crosses. I turned PC off and restarted twice but still... big red crosses. Is all my hard working creation gone? Please help me

The file you saved just tells your computer where to get the picture files and sound files on the slower computer. You need to copy those files also. The program should ask you where you saved the picture and sound files on the faster computer.

File/Folder Permission Message in Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus

Hello welcome to FIxya!

Here you can check this procedure on how to open your files again.

"1) Check your Recycle Bin
2) Do a Folder/File Search for each of the Grey Folder Project names. This will display all Folders & Files with that Project Name. You are looking for an .stx File. If it's there, right-Click on Project Name / Open Containing Folder & Copy it to your My Projects Folder. Then you should have both the Grey Folder & .stx File for the same Project name, showing in your My Projects Folder.
If the Search doesn't display a .stx File, you can create a new one, by Opening a New empty Project, which will create a My Movie Grey Folder & a My Movie .stx File, Save to your My Projects Folder. Delete the My Movie Grey Folder & Rename the My Movie .stx File to the same name as your original Grey Folder."
So ...after finding my "lost" movie file, with its file name, under Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects i then went through the following procedures using your great advice Colour;
  1. Make a copy of your found "lost" movie grey film icon file by right mouse clicking on your lost file and choosing "copy". Paste the copy into another folder in Documents where you can find it if need be
  2. Then go back to Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and right mouse click onto your grey film icon. Choose "rename". Then rename your "lost" grey film icon to a new file name but do not put .stc at the end of the file name, if you are operating VISTA and Pinnacle 12. This is important because Pinnacle 12 won't recognise the file later if you have .stc in the file name
  3. Open Pinnacle and go to the File Menu
  4. Click on New Project
  5. Open File Menu again and click on Save File as
  6. Give the file a name such as "Movie 7" and save it
  7. Close out of Pinnacle
  8. Open up Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and observe that you now have 2 new files there ...a grey film icon file saying Movie 7 AND a coloured Pinnacle icon file saying Movie 7
  9. Delete the grey icon file with the file name Movie 7
  10. Now give your coloured Pinnacle icon file the exact same rename as your precious "lost" renamed grey movie icon file, using the right mouse click on rename proceedure as explained in No.2 above.
  11. Close out of Documents file
  12. Now open up Pinnacle again
  13. Go to Menu and choose Open Project
  14. There you will see the coloured Pinnacle icon file with the new name of your "lost" movie file.
  15. Click onto its coloured Pinnacle icon, and watch your "lost" movie come into view again

Video SLideshow

Refer to help document of the software. You could usually press F1 to issue it.

If you have not bought picture show deluxe, Windows Movie Maker (:\Program Files\Movie Maker\moviemk.exe) on your system will always do the job.

More easy to access software in my opinion is Wondershare Movie Story

Vista crashes while publishing movie in Windows Movie Maker/DVD Maker

i just found out the problem.
I have nero 7 installed on vista. To fix the vista movie maker crash when rendering, I just renamed this folder
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter
Renamed DSFilter to something else. VMM no longer crashes and when I want to use Nero again, just rename DSFilter back to normal.

There might be one on you could download.

I have a feeling it wasn't working the way it was supposed to and Micorosoft pawned alot of there video edit support over to Pinnacle Systems and standing behind Studio which is the stuff I use. Its a good program to use. Version 12 just came out this week. It will produce DVDs and just about any kind of format you need.

If you have a Nero DVD buring program, you might have video editing program that was included with the CD.

Not sure what it means, but I found a way around it.

I get the same error when I try to burn a WMV (Windows Media Video) file to a DVD.

As a work-around, I converted the file to a MPG (MPEG-2) file. That took the size from 41 Mb to 357 Mb.

I was then able to burn the MPG file to a DVD successfully.

If you still have trouble, I would suggest creating an ISO image of the MPG file. That takes the size from 357 Mb to 508 Mb. You should then be able to create a DVD directly from the image file.

Good luck!
