PowerProducer 2 Gold NE

We have a JVC GZ-MG30AA camera. When using PowerProducer 2 Gold NE to produce and burn our clips we have filmed onto DVD, the dvd spits out and a error message says 'Catastrophic Failure'.
It has in the past burned DVDs just fine and so I'm not sure why its all of a sudden not going it!

can you help?

    same problem exactly

  • Anonymous Nov 26, 2008

    Me too. Same problem. Have burned discs before. Almost burned this current project. 100% on both progress bars, then an error message with "Send/Don't Send" buttons. Now, I can't get past 50% progress on the top progress bar without "catastrophic failure"

    Same thing. I have sucessfully burned around 10 discs in the past, which work correctly with my DVD player. However, this time it stopped at around 30% of file rendering, and the DVD spit out with a "Catastophic Failure" message.

SOURCE: transfering editing and burning

I think you may be able to use 3rd party software like "ConvertXtoDVD" the camera records in type of .mpg format & this can be used by many programs including Media Player as long as ya have the right "CODEC" to play and manipulate them. So identify the CODEC, what type of .mpg etc, the camera records in and get , Down Load, that one for Media Player. You may be able to use Windows Movie maker too, but any of the good movie programs would do. I have enclosed some helpful links to further help..

SOURCE: Can't get rid of the screen images for video camera on playback

If it's like my Canon MVX25i date and time marking then go to the menu, select display setup (or whatever it's called on your camera) somewhere there should be a dialogue which allows you to switch the pesky thing off. I have never used date or time, a very amateurish concept in the first place.

I have a JVC Everio Video Camera, but i can not get the video files to burn to a dvd disc. i have downloaded them onto my computer- and created a dvd, but the files just will not burn onto a disc!! what am...

The problem's not what they are saved as, it's your burning software needs to transcopr them into mpeg-2 format so that they burn properly.
There are several dvd burning software programs out there...some very pricy and some are free.
For pricy type I would go with nero 10
For free, I reccomend Free DVD Creater
Whatever program you go with, it must be one that will change the format from whatever it is, to mpeg-2.

I hope this helps.

I made a video from my JVC GZ-MG130 on Windows Media DVD Maker. When I try to burn to disc it fails after 99%. I tried new disc that should run at 16X but it failed again. Also, tried to run at slower...

Have you tried Nero? I want you to use the Power Cinema NE(Editor) its include in this package. Open the video file in the editor(Copy/Edit) Advance feature, you can do some editing if you wish and Produce. It will ask you what format will be the outcome(DVD Mpeg2). Once finished, this file is ready for burning. Burn it in Nero or Roxio as Data file since its already a DVD file. Hope it helps

Where can i get freeware/shareware copy of power producer 2 gold from please

Power Producer Gold 2 is not a shareware/freeware program; it's a commercial, off-the-shelf product from CyberLink. It is video-editing software and is used for home moviemakers looking for a user-friendly program. PowerProducer 2 is compatible with many movie formats and can double as a digital photo album. It's generally available at around $69.95. It won't add incredible graphics or Hollywood special effects to your movies but it's a reliable and simple system for capturing video, cleaning it up with editing tools, and burning the end product onto CD or DVD.

I don't know if Power Producer 2 Gold is available becaue Power Producer 5 is on the market. You can get more information on buying it at

Let me know if this helps.

I believe it's available for about $69 from sold by CyberLink
