I am trying to convert an .ifo file to an .mov file and I keep getting an upable to create directory error. I have converted two files already but I can't seem to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Actually, I think I've solved the problem. It doesn't work well if you try to convert files that are on your desktop, so move any files you want to covert to another folder before converting. Hope that helps.

Hi Sean,
I'd also recommend you to choose any common name for the output file, such as My_video. The format (.avi in your case) will be added automatically, so as an output you will receive My_video.avi

Best Regards

I'm using windows XP and Video editor 4. Editor works well, and I can save the project file just fine. I cannot, however, save the finished movie. I get an "Unable to create directory" error.

I read elsewhere here that someone solved that issue by moving the file off the desktop. Mine is in a standard folder on my C: drive, so that's not the issue. I've tried several video clips, so it's not the clip. I have tried several naming options for the project file, all of them basic: movie1, test1, etc.

I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, and running before and after license key information was entered.

I'm stumped, and really need to complete this project. Program's earlier versions worked fine... but I sure like the new features in ver 4, so it's what I'd like to see working.

I've attached error screen.

The advice is the same: try saving your movie to another folder. Create a new folder on the other hard disc and try saving the file there.
If the problem persists, please attach a screenshot of the error showing directory you are trying to save your movie to.
We will do our best to help you.
