Windows 7: DVDFlick Burn DVD with Chapters

DVD Flick is a nice app. Even though it's no longer updated it's still worth a place in the video tools folder.

DVDFlick Burn DVD with Chapters

I added the seven .wmv files one-at-a-time and clicked on "Edit" each time. I did not really see anything to edit or any place to "make chapters." So I ended up back at Square One -- I burned another DVD with all of the files but no chapters.

I attached two Screenshots with the hope that they might show something that I need to change.

Once the files are loaded, click 'Orange' icon. Set to 'Create ISO' select save to desktop. Press 'Start' Make coffee, it will take about 1 hour. When complete, close DVDStyler. Burn to DVD with ImgBurn. When you put DVD in your player, click 'Select Title' mission complete.

Chapters are points to skip to in each title. You don't have one long movie with 7 chapters. You have 7 distinct titles. Therefor you don't need chapters. Just a menu with an entry for each title. You're making it much harder than it is.

This tool has a nice menu wizard. You may find it easier to use. Most times you just add chapters as times. When you hit the Next Button on the DVD remote it goes to the next chapter. I used to do image buttons for chapters back in the old SVCD days. I don't know if free authoring programs have buttons for chapters now. You could look at AvsToDVD. Also there's a support thread on that site where the author answers questions instead of getting the info second hand.

MilesAhead and Roderunner,

I appreciate the help you have been giving me but things are just not clicking right for me. I just tried to burn my latest DVDFlick attempt. It stoped during the process and gave this error message."An error occured during the encoding process 53 File Not Found." I got that same message last night so I uninstalled and reinstalled DVDFlick, but that apparently did not help.

As much as I appreciate your help, it is time to give this up for awhile. It is spoiling my holiday spirit. Thank you very much for all of your efforts.

Roderunner, earlier you said about DVDStyler, "Once the files are loaded, click 'Orange' icon. Set to 'Create ISO' select save to desktop. Press 'Start' Make coffee, it will take about 1 hour. When complete, close DVDStyler. Burn to DVD with ImgBurn."

After I decided to give DVDFlick a rest, I created an ISO. It is saved as "scrapbookdvdstyler.dvds." When I try to burn it to DVD using ImgBurn, ImgBurn does not recognize that file. Do I need to to convert the .dvds" file?

I do all DVD burning using Imgburn

With Flick or any other converter or encoder you should only output to files on the HD. In this case a VIDEO_TS folder. That way you can check for errors before burning. You are likely better off asking on a video specific site such as:

http://www.videohelp.com/

or

http://forum.digital-digest.com/

Trying to burn directly from DVD Flick is asking for problems. Most people who recommend Flick also recommend outputting to VIDEO_TS. See if you can get a VIDEO_TS folder that plays correctly in VLC. It's also a good idea to have erasable DVDR to try a test burn first. Flick is known for having issues when you try to encode and burn in one operation. In fact most do. Any paid converter that makes me put a disc in the burner to encode, I take off my system even if I get it on a Giveaway promotion for free. It's just a waste of time. 2 step process. Produce and test the video files. If test ok then burn.

That is very helpful information. It was very thoughtful of you to take the time to explain all of that. I appreciate all of your advice and help.

I hope that it is okay to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!

Carver, the file your looking for is an ISO. The one you tried to use was the project file.
