encoding dvd hangs during burning in windows movie maker

I got my film in preview and clicked "burn" - the dvd encoding process starts, then stops at 1.1%.  No error message is given; hold the right encoding.

I downloaded the windows essentials pack 2.3d media codec that has solved a problem I had upload my video in movie maker.

I tried to disable the video filters under Tools, but it had no effect on the dvd, encoding of stall.

Ideas?

Hi Cindy luster,

Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Community Forums.

How are you trying to publish the movie?
What is the format of the file you want to burn?
You try to burn all protected digital content?
Are you able to burn DVDs using the default windows DVD burner?

This could happen if the format of the files you used in movie maker could be the cause of this problem. If you try to publish the film directly on the DVD, then I suggest you try to publish to the computer and then try to burn the DVD.

You can also use create DVD to burn your movie maker projects to check how it works there. To learn more about burning using DVD maker click the link below

  • What type of DVD should I buy to burn my Windows Movie Maker movie? Also, I have Windows DVD Maker, but no DVD burner. What should I buy?

    I created a movie in Movie Maker.  I bought some DVD + r's - the correct burn the movie on?  Also, I don't have a burner, I thought that I did, I can only burn a CD what should I buy?  I don't have a Windows DVD authoring program.

    Hi rondah,.

    Welcome to the Microsoft community newsgroups.

    The type of recordable DVD, you need to use depends on your DVD burner, as well as on your DVD player. Some DVD burners can burn only to certain types of DVD recordable. For example, with some DVD burners, you can only record to DVD + R discs or DVD + RW or DVD-R or DVD - RW discs, while some other DVD burners will let you burn on all of these recordable DVD types.

    As long as your DVD burner supports burning to these types of discs, you can use Windows DVD creation to burn a DVD using one of the following types of recordable and re-recordable DVD media: DVD + R, DVD + RW, DVD - R, DVD - RW, and DVD - ROM. These recordable or rewritable DVDs can be either simple single laminate or single sided double layer.

    You should also consider the device you're using to play the DVD once you have engraved, if possible. Some DVD players and DVD - ROM drives play only certain types of DVD. To determine what types of DVDs your DVD player or DVD - ROM drive can play, see the documentation that came with your device or go to the manufacturer's Web site.

  • DVD does not properly burn on windows movie maker

    My film seems perfect on the screen, but when I burn to a DVD in the same program of Movie Maker, it burns all the show and there is no music either.  Any advice?

    Thank you

    Frustratedwithmoviemaker

    Hello

    I suggest to restore the settings of Windows DVD maker to factory default settings in the audio and video
    the filters sometimes cause this problem.

    Video and audio filters are programs that are installed on your computer that help interpret video files so that they will display and play correctly. Windows Movie
    Manufacturer use them when you import video and audio.

    To restore settings, try the following steps.
    a. open Windows DVD maker.
    b. click on tools and then click Options.
    c. click on the Compatibility tab.
    d. do one of the following:
    e. click all of the default settings.
    f. restart DVD creation and burning a DVD again to check if the problem persists.

    When you restore the default settings, the list and the filters settings are given to the last known good setting.

    I made a slide show DVD in my computer XP using WMM. I thought that I taped on the C drive first, but I can't access either one to make changes. I can view the DVD using Windows Media Player, but I want to change it

    For a re-release in Movie Maker, you need the. MSWMM

  • Is there a free software to convert DVDs to Windows Movie Maker software

    Hello

    I have a problem loading the images to a DVD in Windows Movie Maker. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm looking free software which will convert a DVD to a file compatible Windows Movie Maker.
    Thank you.

    The following steps may be worth a try...

    I'm guessing that this isn't a step a commercial DVD
    with protection against copying? If_yes_read on...

    FWIW... break the copy protection on

    Insert the DVD into your DVD drive... If AutoPlay or

    the DVD.

    Find the VIDEO_TS folder and open it... video
    files have a. Extension VOB.
    Copy them to a folder on your hard drive... it
    Maybe more than VOB files and those with the
    larger sizes of files are the ones you need.

    If you're running Vista Home Premium or Ultimate...
    You may be able to import the VOB files directly
    in Movie Maker.

    If not, try renaming the. VOB files. MPG or
    . AVI and try to import into Movie Maker. If this
    works... drag in the timeline, one at a time
    and publish (save) in the .wmv format.
    Then reimport the files for editing .wmv.

    If still no success... you will need to convert the. VOB
    format .wmv before import into movie files
    Machine to...

    There are to many converters available on the net...
    the following links are some examples.

  • Why does my windows Movie Maker stop burn to my dvd to 60percent without message

    Burning my family video with windows movie maker, from the (encoded) copy to dvd disc, and it stops at 60% completion with no error message.  How can I solve this problem.

    Thank you

    Just a few ideas...

    Large, complex projects are prone to problems.
    If you create several small projects and publish (Save)
    each format .wmv or .avi movie to a folder on
    your hard drive, you can then import the clips collected
    DVD Maker and each one becomes a scene
    (Chapter)... you can have up to 18 scenes.

    ===

    Your source files might have compatibility issues...

    Several formats are apparently compatible with
    Movie Maker, but the most reliable choices are:

    Photos - bmp
    Video - wmv or dv - avi
    Audio - wav, wma, wmv

    ===

    It may be interesting to try to open Movie Maker and go to...
    Tools / Options / Compatibility tab and disable all the
    filters / OK.

    ===

    Publication (save) the project to the DV - AVI or WMV
    film in Movie Maker format and then import the
    movie DVD Maker file may be worth a try.

  • M30X MultiDrive won't burn a DVD from Windows Movie Maker

    Hello

    My MultiDrive M30x will not burn the DVD from Windows Movie Maker and other applications.

    I also had problems with burning CDs (unbranded) of Windows XP, built in utility.

    The multidrive has problems with cheaper brand discs?

    Just to note,
    The laptop was to support guys three times until various issues.
    (1) the hard drive failed.
    (2) the multidrive has failed.
    (3) the motherboard replaced, due to power outages, it would not charge the battery, or recognize that the AC adapter is plugged.

    Note: The hard drive, not the fan made the most noise in mine!

    Thank you

    Hello

    As far as I know (i.e. pre-installed burning software Save now, drag-and - drop) disabled the option of Windows XP burning. In this case if you want to use the Movie Maker or Windows media player burning option, you need to activate this possibility.
    Please, go to the properties of the drivers (right click). Please select the recording tab. CD recording option on this drive must be marked.
    I use the software Nero burning and in my opinion he of one of the best burning programs. In addition, you should try different manufacturers CD/DVD because some CD and DVD is not compatible with some readers. Check the TDK CD and DVD. I never had no problem with these media.

    Best regards

  • Windows Movie Maker project doesn't find or burns correctly in DVD maker overview

    I have created a Windows Movie Maker project, composed of many avi files (129 min) and I can see the entire project in Movie Maker, but when I go to burn a DVD in DVD maker I can only listen to excerpts from the first minutes 33 and the rest is a black screen with no audio (as if there's nothing there). Also when I burn a DVD only burn the first 33 min.  I tried to publish the project to my computer in WMV format, but I get an error when I try to open in DVD creation that the file is not indexed and cannot be opened in creation of DVD. I tried to uncheck the vidoe filters and that has not worked.  Help, please. I put many hours of work into this and am very frustrated.

    The file is too large and complex. The best would be to create
    several small projects... To each post in the. WMV or. DV - AVI
    format in a folder on your hard drive. Then you can import the collection
    video files in DVD Maker and each clip becomes a scene

  • What kind of cd/dvd is the best for my video Windows Movie Maker filled and how can I burn it?

    OK... I've published my Movie Maker presentation.  It will be presented via a laptop computer and projected.  First of all, what kind of cd/dvd I need?  I know that this information is listed under the HELP section of the Movie Maker program, but what do you propose to help?  AND THEN... How can I do to burn video on cd?  I got to the question re: given dvd vs dvd-video and was confused (sorry... it doesn't take much!).  In my mind, it's a video, but the explanation stated that in this format must then be read via a dvd player.  Finally it can be read that way and it would be nice to have this option, but my goal is now to have played through a computer laptop and projected.  I tried to save it as a video dvd last night, but after almost two hours of "transformation" (my video completed is approximately 3-1/2 minutes), I eventually escape and stop.  Can you guide me through this in simple terms?  Thank you!

  • I do not understand why my creation of windows DVD burn only 1% of one of my windows movie maker projects.

    Hello

    I made a video of my Windows Movie Maker project and have tried several times to burn through my Windows DVD Maker with the burning of 7% max.  After that, it gets stuck.  However, my other several attempts were a result of burning of 1% and it stuck.  I've left overnight to see if it was the capacity but the next day it is still 1%.  I did other projects without problem.  It is only with this project.  I don't understand why it won't let me if I used Windows movie maker without problem.  The video was originally in AVI, but I was able to convert a 3GP using dvdvideosoft software. Then only, I have done a project using my Windows Movie Maker.  The full minutes of this project is 90 minutes, while the DVD that I want to burn it holds 150 minutes.  Can you help me?  Tried several things and can not find the solution.  I don't know that there must be a solution.

    What or who persuaded allows you to convert AVI, which is supported by Windows, to 3GP, which is not supported by Windows?

    If you must, convert AVI to WMV format.
    Bypass Windows Movie Maker.
    Add the WMV video in Windows DVD Maker directly.
    Try to burn now.
