I've had PE4 for almost a year with no issues using for home movies. I've always burned to a DVD burner, then insert the DVD in the E drive. Never had any problems. Within the past 2 weeks I've encountered a recurring issue. Here's what is happening...
On the Media Downloader, the thumbnails show all of the content/media. I've run through the thumbnail to make sure it's all there, which it is, and it is checked. When I click on Get Media, the Copying window appears. But, it now shows copying 0% even though the VOB blue bar has moved to 100%. Once imported, only about 20% of the content/media actually copies over. For example, only 6 mins is copied out of 30 mins.
I've tried reburning to a new disc, redownloading, etc. but keep getting the exact same results. I'm stumped. Any ideas?
You say "I've always burned to a DVD burner", do you mean you are getting your home movies onto DVD by using a set-top DVD recorder? And then you import them into PE4 using the Media Downloader to import the files from the DVD?
Have you installed any new software recently that may be interfering with PE7? Not a solution I know but as a workaround you could use this suggestion from over on Muvipix to combine the vobs and import them into PE4. It also overcomes any audio sync issues you might see when importing with the Media Downloader in PE4.
Import the same file in movie maker and burn a DVD. I think this is corrupted file.
