    So why is it that MYDVD waits until just before it starts writing the files to the DVD before crashing? Granted it only happens 3 times out of 20 but it sure does make me feel a bit postal... I mean you wait 4 danged hours and just when you think all is well and good bam! it ejects the DVD and says sorry MYDVD has experienced a problem and needs to shut down. So I finally break down today and go check their website to see if they have any updates, they don't... guess they are the only company that makes a perfect program and all the problems are... well not theirs.

    Rant over, funny still don't feel better.

    I believe the computer gods do this to you as punishment for even using MyDVD in the first place. I know it's the only one that publicly claims support for .tivo files.. but it used up my patience after it crashed during 5 of my first 10 burns.. I migrated to Nero and have not returned..

    Yes, someone please HELP! I have HAD IT with MyDVD. It has now crashed 4/4 of the times I have tried to use it to convert and burn DVD's from original TIVO programs/files.

    All this on a 1.7ghz machine with 3gb RAM and 200gb of storage.

    I tried it on my laptop with the same results.

    Is anyone else getting this done out there?

    If so, how?

    Are you using the "Get Recorded Programs" button in MyDVD, or using the "Add Files"? I have only been successful MyDVD by inserting shows into the project by using the "Get Recorded Programs" button. Additionally, when it finally burns for you, burn at no more than 8X.

    If you are missing the "Get Recorded Programs" button, Sonic has a patch on thier website to insert the required button.

    Good luck! I almost gave up myself but have finally gotten it to work, without too much of a headache.

    You should check out my last post in this thread...

    it outlines a way to create a DVD from .tivo files without transcoding. If you're even remotely technical the process is really easy. And the only piece of software that costs any money is VideoReDo, the editor, and it's got a 15 day full trial period so you can test it out and make sure it does what you want.
