[QUOTE=jerifk;2232932]I am an absolute newbie
Am making a Memorial Video for my sister - DVD slideshow with music.
It looks very good and I can play it on my PC - No problem.
When I play it on my DVD, it always stops playing at 8m 45s. One of the DVD’s I made managed to loop a 2nd time. Thought I was home free, but oops…on the 2nd loop it stopped at 8m 45 s
I’ve tried changing audio files and deleting the photo that displayed when it stopped playing.
If I hit the forward button on the DVD player, it will begin playing again but…
I need to keep going.
Well it seems you have done all the right things, but have you tried it [B]another[/B] DVD player? Have you sent it to your sister to see if it plays in her’s?
Fire up Nero CD-DVD Speed (it may be called Nero DiscSpeed) and try a [B]Transfer Rate Test[/B] on your burn.
You’ll want to see a fairly clean line (it doesn’t have to be quite this perfect):
Something like this shows a bad media to burner match. This is the wrong media for this burner. This disc will probably cause problems in many players.
You could try saving your Nero Vision project to a Folder, instead of burning direct. Check it in your computer then use ImgBurn (free) in ‘Build’ Mode to do your finally burn. This will help determine if it’s a Nero burning problem.
Do note that RW’s can be problematic for many players and in the final wash it may simply be a matter of the TDK discs you are using. As was noted sometimes burn speeds come into play, especially with media that is not a good match for your burner. If these are 16X discs try burning at 8X.
