When playing preview in HD - no problem.
Pause playback - preview then reverts to displaying SD - hit HD button 'OFF' - then preview switches to display HD.
In other words when preview is paused it displays the opposite effect to that indicated by the HD button!

Thanks for the feedback, interesting, there is a recent post regarding external drives here, maybe you could give your opinion on their use…..
Just to add if you are not aware ---- there is two working folders…..
For the general editing, can be allocated via edit timelines Preferences F6
Two (Corels little secret)
From the burner module, this is used for temporary files (DMF_TEMP) used in the burner render processes, can be allocated from (lower left icon ) F6 Preferences
Anyway its good you have found the cause…………..

1. The file format is PAL DVD, while the burning module in the x7 was set to NTSC.
2. The "Do not convert compliant MPEG files" was ticked
So now every thing is OK and I have succeed to burn.
Thanks a lot Canuck and Ken

Are you completely sure you inserted the new mpeg-2 into the burning module and not the VSP file? It is usually the latter which brings up "Convert step got some problems"...

In the x6 program in the Share step I choose Create Video File - DVD Video (16:9). This is exactly what I have done for several years in x6 without any problem to burn them.
attached is the properties of that file

Normaly when I worked on a project I have my PC connected to external 2 HDD's. This results in "preferences" with a "workfolder" G:\.
When I wanted to burn my project to my PC with only external 1 HDD connected the errour came up. So it was not possible to create a menu or even burning. The programma stopped.
I think the reason for that was that my external HDD was F:\ and not G:\ on the moment. Going to the location of "preferences" a warning messages came up.
To solve this I connected my both external HDD's and everything worked fine.
It looks like a stuppid thing but, how strange can this be?
Hope to help others with this explanation.
Anyway everybody thanks for their help, even this was into another direction.

At first I fund VS X7 would not run using the on board video chip set.
Install MSI NX8500GT video board now OK but when rendering to Blu-Ray disk or hard disk
VS X7 fails with an error message (Debug Assertion Failure, Line: 155) about half way through the process every time.
Corel customer support indicates this is a problem with my system only.
They tested my video clip and did not find any issues.
Product specifications do not show any special requirement for the video board.
Can someone recommend a known working video card that I could try?
Video card NX8500GT with the latest F/W
LG Blu-Ray burner with the latest F/W
VS X7 Ulimate 64 Bit with the latest patches

If the file you created is a "DVD compliant mpg" file then X7 will have no problem accepting it and there would be no conversion involved.

I have created a DVD video file in my previous X6 PRO. Now I have tried to burn it to a DVD disk in my new X7 PRO, and I have got the message: "Convert step got some problems" so the burn failed. It doesn't make sense that X7 doesn't recognize files that has been created in X6. So what could be the problem?
Any help will be appreciated.

You would have to re-install the program to remove the Service Pack.
Are you able to provide a sample video, maybe upload to DropBox or similar sharing site, we can then test the file to see if we have the same problems and hopefully confirming that SP1 is the culprit.
By the way SP1 seems to have been removed from the US Corel site, yet the last time I looked was available from the UK?
I have had SP1 installed for a while with no problems, don’t know if problems are related to NTSC installed programs????

If you are then try uninstalling it, as it appears to cause more problems than it was designed to solve with respect to .MOV files.

When you want to continue editing the easiest way is to open up VideoStudio first - then go "File >> Open Project" and browse to the .vsp file and select it - - or choose the project name from the bottom of the file drop down if it is present - just like most other windows programmes,
Your project should then open and populate the timeline.

Can you tell us what type of disc you are burning a DVD or AVCHD or Bluray, I assume a DVD
To burn a DVD you need a Mpeg2 video file.
Your project has to be rendered to create that type of file, I did notice you said you created a HDV, that file is not suitable for burning a DVD and as such will be converted to Mpeg2 prior to burning.
We have two options in burning a disc…………
With the project open in the timeline doing Share Create Disc DVD opens the burner module.
Just after hitting Burn the process starts with Convert Title, this is probably where you are having problems, the Convert Title stage is rendering the project to a temporary Mpeg2, this is used to burn the disc.
Option 2 / ( I always use this process -- recommended)
If you have errors during the burning process then you are advised to create that Mpeg2 yourself.
From the edit timeline Share Create Video File DVD, this renders the project to Mpeg 2 video file.
If that process fails then you have issues with the actual project.
Once the Mpeg2 file has been created, play the file to check quality.
To burn a disc using the Mpeg2
Start a new project—nothing in the timeline
Share Create Disc – Add Media – Add Video File --- browse for the Mpeg2 created above.
On the final window, after Pressing burn the process will start with Convert Title there will be no Convert Title as you are using a compliant Mpeg2 file.
Are you saying using Option 2 using a Mpeg2 file as above also causes the errors.???

I don't see how your suggestion is going to help Peter. He states that when he opens the project file nothing appears in his timeline.
