I have endless trouble transferring images from myJVC Everio HDD to DVD. The provided software seems full of faults; the PowerCinema will allow only 50 files per disc and as most holiday shots are only of the order of 10-20 seconds, this only uses a fraction of a disc capacity, as no further transfer can be made to the same disc, which is always automatically'closed'. As a two-week holiday may produce 400 or more files, this is a costly and wasreful use of discs. Also, there is no way of editing files, other than deleting them, it being impossible to 'split' files to get rid of dud parts.
Trying use Windows Movie Maker is little better. Again more than forty files is fraught with danger, messages such as 'catastrophic failure' and 'unspecified error' coming up if the storyboard is long than 10-15 minutes. The iating time for encoding is also a horrenbdous waste of time.
Is there any better software that can be used? They provide Cyberlink PowerDirector, Express, Power to Go etc, but I can't see how import the files from C/MyWorks/Everio Backup/ PRG etc into the system
Any advice welcome to save hours of futile messing about!
