I have been using Magix Edit Pro 15 Plus.  It does everything great  on Win XP.  It will run on Win 7 - only problem is that you can't burn a DVD in Win 7.  It crashes.  Come to think of it, evry video software I try fails to write a DVD in WIN 7.  I spent 3 days editing something only to find out I couldn't burn the DVD.  I had to redo it on my older computrer with Win XP. ???

Can someone recommend a good video editing software that actually works with Win 7?  Sony Vegas is too complex and Easy Video failed to write the DVD when I tried it out.  ::)

Is it the software or your DVD drive? Check the DVD writer for BIOS updates and drivers for Windows 7. Did you go to the software site and look for updates?

The burner is up to date - it isw a Toshiba TS-L833C.  I don't have any trouble burning data disks or making copies.  I do notice that the disk has something written to it, but it seems to abort at the time it is supposed to "Finalize" the disk so that it will play on a tv DVD player.  I can't even run it on the computer.  I suspect the softeware just isn't compatible with Win 7.

As a work around, I was able to export an MPG-2 file to the hard drive.  Then I copied that MPG-2 file to a flash card and loaded it onyo my old desktop that still has XP.  Then I ran MEP 15 Plus and burned the DVD for TV.  So at least the software is partially compatible.  Thank God for that.  That saved me from having to do a complete re-edit.

So the next test would be, have the file and using some other software on the Windows 7 computer, burn a copy to make sure the DVD recorder is working.

Or am I confused. You say it records fine, but you went to a different computer to make a working copy?

Ya, just like Vista finding drivers that don't exist, except this time MS says, they have it right. Why am I thinking it's a Windows 7 incompatibility issue.  ;D

I have a drive that suddenly did the same things you are describing. It now burns CDs fine but makes one track on the DVD and chokes.

Why is it I'm still running XP on all my computers except the one that's a dual boot, Windows 98 and Windows 2000! That's the one I use to run the business.  ;)

I did try to run another editing software that was very basic, but did provide the essentials to produce a Video DVD for players connected to TVs.  That software was Easy Video.  It did the same thing - edited smoothly, but when I tried to burn the DVD it aborted with the same symptoms.  There was code burned to the DVD, bit it can not be read on either the Computer or the DVD Player attached to my TV.

If I use the "Export" command to create an MPG-2 file, the file can be burned to a DVD.  That DVD will run on the Computer, but will not play on the Player connected to the TV.

In order to get a DVD that will work with the player attached to the TV, I must transfer the MPG-2 file to my other computer.  Then I can successfully burn the DVD for TV.

I also went to the Manufacturer's web site, but there were no updates to the driver for my particular burner.  So I think it will be better if I reformat the new laptop and make a clean install of Win-XP.  That's another $89 cost I don't really need abd the pain of reuploading all my software and drivers etc.

Hope this clears things up, but folks should forget about Win-7; it sucks! >:(

Isn't trouble-shooting entertaining. Oh maybe make that frustrating. Doesn't MS offer a dual boot set-up so you can have the option to boot into Windows 7 or XP, so  you can continue to use your computer and have things work?  ??? New is always improved, you have my sympathy.

The dual boot, means you don't have to toss out the new OS forever and you can retain the working properties, until the software, DVD bios, or Microsoft or whatever is causing the problem, can be fixed.

Try looking here. It's not complicated and can be useful.

Adding it to the boot manager is one way to go. If you aren't comfortable editing your registry, maybe you have a geek friend hanging around. Someone like myself or my friend Chuck.  ;)

I think this one assumes that you have an XP computer and want to test drive Win-7, not very helpful, but just in case someone finds this in a search.

Thanks Racephoto!  I do have a friend that can help me with this approach.  He will be coming over to help me install a new burner in my old XP unit.  That one is my desktop.  It is four years old; so I'm hoping to get a couple of eears more out of it.  It runs at 3.8 GHZ and has hyperthreading.  Itt isn't as good as Dual Core, but I'm able to do most of what I get involved with.

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!

I just reinstalled the editing software - Magix Movie Edit Pro and installed the Win-7 update supplied by the developer's web site. I also installed the Burn Routines patch.

Result when trying to burn the Video DVD:

It appears that the Burn support is not supported which might explain the encoding failing also?

What a pain! ::)

I tried another clean install and updated the MEP 15 Plus to Win-7 and installed the newest Burn Routine Update only to fail again?  New code though!  Could I be making progress?

I'm going to be no help, but when one of my burners stopped writing DVDs but still works with CDs, I had the same kind of issues. It would burn the lead in track and then die. You can see a single track around the inside of the DVD.

Frustrating isn't it!

There have already been plenty of questions and answers regarding CD or DVD burning problems in Magix programs here. You might want have a look at some of the older posts and try the search function, as I'm sure you can bring up some more extensive replies. Here are the most important points in a nutshell:

* Make sure your burn routines are up-to-date. That is the software interface Magix uses to burn in the programs. It's updated on a regular basis to implement improvements and support more burners. You can always find the most recent update on the Magix support website in the downloads section under "Tools".

* Pretty much one of the first steps in any burn troubleshooting should always be the testing of other types and makes of CD/DVD blanks. Not all blanks work well with all optical drives. Make sure your drive is generally supporting the type of blank you're going to us as well.

* Up-to-date firmware for your burner might also be a good idea. If a newer version is available, you'd find this through the website of the manufacturer.

* Sometimes, other software can interfere with the burning process in the Magix program. This is especially true for other software related to optical drives and disc-authoring. So, you might want to shut down other applications and background tasks that are not essential when working with the Magix software. Some of these, you might actually want to disable in the "Startup" tab of your "msconfig" Windows system configuration utility, so they don't even start up when booting the system. But it doesn't stop at actual applications. Some programs install really intrusive filter drivers that will alter and influence the communication chain between applications and drives and require the application that brought them into the system to be uninstalled to get rid of these filter drivers again. (And sometimes even that doesn't do the trick.)

On that same token, you might also want to unplug external devices (connected via USB) that you don't really need for the time of working and burning in the Magix program.


Hope there's something in there that helps?

Racephoto - thanks for your input!  I do not use MEP 15+ to burn discs anymore.  I found that MEP 15+ created a file folder that contains all the necessary files to burn the DVD using ""ImgBurn" which is a free software.  So I just go to the Folder "Disk Images" in My Documents/Magix_Movie_Edit_Pro 15 Plus/Disc Images, and select it for burning a DVD using ImgBurn.  Works great!  It is faster and plays on all of my players!!!
