As an experiment, what happens if you try to do it with a 10 minute project?
Massive projects (and even an hour project is pretty big) are not the best means to troubleshoot with.
What processor do you have, by the way? There are dozens of quad core processors, and not all are up to the task.
Thank you for answering.
The issue appears with a simple 10 minute project I created as well, with just a single video & audio stream. Upon first clicking Disc it indicates that I don't have menus, allows me to create them, returns to the main screen and then clicking on disc again just triggers the wait wheel. Processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5GHz.
Any other suggestions would be welcome.
There is something wrong with your system's configuration, but I don't know what it is.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the program may help. So can ensuring you have Quicktime 7, per the program's system requirements.
You also may want to download the free trial of version 15 and giving it a try, just to see if it makes any difference.
BTW, I'm assuming that the projects you are trying to burn to disc were created in version 13. You can open version 7 projects in version 13 without causing all sorts of corruptions.
Steve, I'll probably never meet you, but I am in your debt. I hope that the good you have done comes back to you in abundance very soon.
I don't use Quicktime, but it's installed. I ran it, or tried to, and it reported "Apple Software Updater not installed". I tried to run Quicktime on it's own, and it reported the same. I uninstalled Quicktime and downloaded the latest Win 7.9 version, which installed the Apple updater. Issue sorted.
Now PE 13 works a charm. Amazing!
Many thanks again Steve. GB
Great news, Nevin!
