When i try to burn it using NTSC it wont burn, it says "image creation error...wrong resolution" so i have to burn it in PAL. I think that the problem has something to do with that. I'm not very computer savy so i am completely lost. Could it be the dvd's i'm burning on? If so, which ones should i use?

This is for a trial version which watermarks the output, so use rewriteable discs if possible

Using this will determine if it is a problem with the PC or the writing software you have

During the install, you can choose whether it is for NTSC / PAL or both, but you can set the options after install as well

So i used that demo program and it worked just fine. Although I like the features of the other program...i managed to burn the slide show in NTSF format, which i did on the demo, but it still didn't work on my tv. I'm makeing progress I guess...where do i go from here?

i don't think there are any firmware updates...at least i can't find it on the magix site. How can i tell if it's finalized?? When it finishes burning, it says complete and the tray opens...like i said it work just fine w/ the program i downloaded...but not from mine...
