    I've posted several queries lately regarding Pinnacle Studio 8 and have
    gotten no responses.

    Yes I can see it. Don't care much about Pinnacle Studio 8 though.

    Your last post appeared to be a problem burning your DVDs,
    what have you tried to burn your project with? What software?
    Have you tried the software that came with your drive? What
    drive are you trying to use? Are you having any problem burning
    things that were not put through Pinnacle Studio 8? What OS are
    you using? Are the media you are trying to use listed for your
    drive at or by the drive maker?

    If you get no response try restating your question with more
    information provided. Whining seldom gets you much help.

  3. That should tell you that you've got the wrong software.

    What with? You mean what burner? Digitial Research dual format 4x burner.
    Pinnacle 8, the software that came with the burner.
    See above
    See above
    It will burn AVI files, mpegs, jpeg, wav files, etc. onto CD-R, CD-RW,
    DVD-RW's just dandy using the Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD that also came with
    the burner drive. PS8 will also create an mpeg, Realmedia, multimedia or avi
    file just fine, and will burn a video CD, but it doesn't work on a DVD
    project as such, nor am I getting output to VHS tape.
    Win98SE, IBM PIII 550mhz, 384 megs ram,
    I assume so since it seems to accept files - avi, mpeg, etc. However looking
    at this site I see it's an excellent resource, I appreciate the tip.

    Ok, given all that, have you tried authoring your PS8
    project to your hard drive. Have it make VIDEO_TS,
    and AUDIO_TS folders with all the proper files, then
    burn that with your Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD.

    I don't know what setup you have for video and audio
    output, and I am guessing that you are not storing digital
    data on your "VHS tape". Then all you need to do is
    play your finished project outputing the analog signals to
    your VCR. Most any PC DVD player software should

    While I would never use your PS8 or a number of other
    non-functional software, if I had managed to create something
    with it and it would not burn properly with its built in burner,
    I would burn it with something else.

    I'm new at this and not intimately familiar with all the in's and out's. I
    see several folders. Do you simply burn those files onto a dvd or is there
    more to it than that? What are all the other folder for?

    Also someone mentioned changing the file names to upper case, but it won't
    let me. Keeps reverting them back to lower case.

    Pinnacle DC-10 Plus capture card, Soundblaster Audigy2 soundcard. It
    captures fine, and it outputs to the tv when I'm capturing, but I can't get
    it to output a finished file to vhs tape, or get the program to burn the DVD
    like it's supposed to.

  7. Change video_ts to VIDEO_TS9 and hit return to accept the change. Go to
    change the name again and take out the 9. That should work.

    Your PS8 should have a "preference" or "option" page that will allow
    you to tell it where to put the files it makes, check that to see were your
    files are. There should be a directory with only two folders, an empty
    AUDIO_TS folder and

    a VIDEO_TS folder with files like this :

    VIDEO_TS.BUP [This is a back-up of the file below ]
    VIDEO_TS.IFO [This is the file that tells the player how the
    DVD files should be played. It is
    the one you
    would select to play with your PC
    player .]
    VIDEO_TS.VOB [This is your base/main/root menu.]
    VTS_01_0.BUP [This is a back-up of the file below ]
    VTS_01_0.IFO [How to play and navigation data for the vob]
    VTS_01_1.VOB [ The first actual video&audio data MPEG file
    (this one will be large)]

    ( The VTS files may be continue with sequential numbers, these
    are the actual "MPEG" files of your project.)

    Your hardware should have come with some instructions. If
    it has an output function there should be controls to implement
    that. Your Help function in your capture software should
    describe how it would be done. Other than that, your PC Player
    software might detect the Crossbar filter and/or Tee filter for
    your output pin.
