I have a DVD that loops in my place of business. Been burning  the same show DVD for several years,  just adding and/or taking off photos. Not a new show, just keep making minor changes by adding slides but also removing older ones.  Probably burned the same show every couple weeks for years. (Even with Producer) Has always worked fine in Director.  It is a large show with approximately 1000 slides, some short videos and no audio - looping.
For some reason this time When I hit the creat button the cursor just spins and never moves on - just locks up?  I doubt that it has an issue with memory because my computer has 56 gig ram, Super fast processor, Large C drive only half full etc and like I say it’s always burned the same show/disc with no problem before.  And typically when I update each new version of this same show I maybe add six or seven new slides but also takes some off so it shouldn’t be an issue with the computer not being able to burn it  

 

I can burn older slideshows that I have previously made or make a new show and that work also.  It’s just this one slideshow that now won’t burn. I would be very appreciative if anyone could help me, would be a major job to try and redo this same show from scratch.

Thank you Greg

Additional note: The slideshow plays perfectly on my PC. It all works fine when I click publish and gives me all the options. It only locks up when I click the create tab. Does not proceed beyond that point and I’ve let it try for hours.

Greg,

I had a similar problem a few years back in the good old days of Proshow (😥). It was a rogue image file that for undetermined reasons Proshow just would not render. Solved by removing that slide.

Although not a quick solution given the size of your show it might be worth rendering it first with your old unwanted slides removed and, if it runs, then adding and testing render each time with the new slides added one by one until you identify the culprit. You could then convert the rogue slide to a different format (e.g. .png if it is a .jpg file) & seeing if Director can then cope with it.

Thank you Deep Thought - Going to take a while but at this point I'll try anything.  Don't want to try and rebuild a 1000 slide show  Greg
