Sonic MyDVD

I am trying to get some help from Sonic.

I checked their website (which now appears to be Roxio). I sent a fax (as all emails seem to be returned as "undelivered") explaining my problem to their UK office and have now received an email telling me to phone their office in Ireland. I don't really want to phone their office in Ireland. The fax I sent to them explained the problem I was having so why can't they just email me the solution?

The problem: I am using Sonic MyDVD to make a slide show. I have set the amount of time the slide is onscreen to 5 seconds. The preview in MyDVD is running perfect. Every slide remains on screen for 5 seconds. But when I burn it to DVD and then play it on my TV the slides change almost instantly.

Anyone using MyDVD who can help? Thanks.

I dont have the answer only a suggestion,maybe extending the time may help on your tv maybe 15/20 seconds may be more like 5 on the tv.

I don't think it's a function of the Sonic software but the DVD player. I've had similar problems.

I can't adjust the interval on my oldish player but you may be able to on yours.

ACOLYTE, thanks. Just tried that and no go, still the same. Have tried 20 second delay, 30 second delay and 60 second delay. All play the same (from the DVD disc)

BurrWalnut, have now tried to play this DVD on LG 4082b, LG4163B and Liteon 5600. Regardless of the player the slides still change almost immediately. Looks like Sonic MyDVD isn't capable of doing a slide show as you would like.

Seems as though I am going to have to ring their helpdesk in Ireland.

I do have other slideshow programmes that will acknowledge the slide delay but they only write to CD and not DVD, which restricts the amount of slides from 4.7gb to 650mb.

stalion, thanks, good try. There is no Music. Music is set to off and Transitions also set to off.

crx1600, thanks have tried Nero (the latest version) on my PC and that works perfectly. The person who is trying to make this slideshow doesn't have the option of Make Slideshow on his version of Nero. Looks like he is due an upgrade.

Seeing him on Thursday this week. Will sort it out then. Have told him to get the latest version from: click here

which is where I got mine from.

Will post back when fixed (or otherwise).

He took my advice and got Nero version 6. We updated to the latest version this morning.

Slideshows are now working perfectly. He is a happy bunny.

Thanks for the advice.
