It seems a bit drastic to suggest that you repair XP because of a problem with one program unless there are files needed from the O.S. - I would suggest you try to uninstall and then reinstall Pinnacle first.

Never had any success with XP's repair (unlike the one for Vista and W7). usually causes more problems than it solves.

There are instructions here for uninstall of Pinnacle 9 you may wish to try - it appears that it may be a compatibility issue with XP enter link description here

A repair install of XPis overkill for a problem with one program to be sure XP is OK:-

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

Hi thanks for all of the help. I have tried the complete unistall and reinstall of pinnacle studio 9 and also installed the last update as suggested by northumbria61 but I still have the same problem in that I cannot render a completed project to a DVD. It just does not start the rendering process. I can render to AVI ok and then use Nero to burn the project to DVD has anybody else further suggestion? Many thanks
