Having Trouble Converting Files?

This troubleshooting section discusses the messages you may receive while converting files.

  1. Please download and install the GPL MPEG-2 decoder

    This message is shown when either a MPEG 2 or DVR-MS fails to convert.  Incorrect decoders or configurations can give unexpected results.  If you already have MPEG hardware or software installed on your system, it is very likely that the hardware/software might have installed its own set of MPEG decoders.  If you are facing problems when converting MPEG or DVR-MS files, you can install the GPL MPEG-2 Decoder from http://www.deskshare.com/download/mpeg2decoder.exe

    This set of decoders has been optimized for its use with Digital Media Converter so DeskShare strongly recommends to download and install it.  These set of decoders are safe and can be installed even if you have other MPEG-2 Decoders installed on your PC.  Regardless of the compatibility settings, if you have the GPL MPEG-2 Decoder installed then Digital Media Converter will use it and not any other MPEG-2 Decoder. 

  2. Invalid number of streams

    This message is shown if all the streams in the DVR-MS file fail to render.  This can happen due to incorrect decoders or configurations.  If you experience problems converting DVR-MS files, you can install the GPL MPEG-2 Decoder from http://www.deskshare.com/download/mpeg2decoder.exe

    This set of decoders has been optimized for its use with Digital Media Converter so DeskShare strongly recommends to download and install it.  It is safe and can be installed even if you have other MPEG-2 Decoders installed on your PC.  Irrespective of the compatibility settings, if you have the GPL MPEG-2 Decoder installed then Digital Media Converter will use it and not any other MPEG-2 Decoder.

  3. This file is protected using digital rights management and cannot be opened.

    This message is shown if the file you are trying to convert is protected by the content owner and/or broadcaster and it cannot be played back.  This message can appear for Windows Media Format files (.wmv, .wma, .asf) or for files recorded on Media Centre PC i.e.  DVR-MS files.  Try opening the file with Windows Media Player.

  4. The recommended installation of QuickTime 6 or higher is required for converting this type of file.  Please select the installation type as Recommended and not the Custom or Minimum.

    This message is shown if the file your trying to convert is a QuickTime MOV format file but your PC does not have the Recommended installation of QuickTime 6 or higher.  When installing QuickTime please ensure that you select the installation type as 'Recommended' and not 'Custom' or 'Minimum'.

  5. Could not convert this file because it is copyright protected.

    This message is shown if the file you are trying to convert is protected by the content owner and it cannot be converted.  This message can appear for QuickTime MOV format files.  This file can be played back using QuickTime player but cannot be converted.

  6. Aborted.  Low Disk Space.

    This message is shown if the drive your saving converted files to does not have sufficient disk space for the conversion to complete.  To convert your files to a different folder on a different drive read General Settings.

  7. Source file cannot be read or is corrupt.

    This message is shown if the file your trying to convert has been replaced with a corrupt file or the codecs that are needed to render the file are not present on the PC.  Try opening this file in Windows Media Player.  If Windows Media Player is able to determine, download and install the required compressors try adding the file again and then converting it.

  8. Cannot find source file.  Search for the file and add it again.

    This message is shown when the file your trying to convert is not present where it was when you added it into Digital Media Converter.  (The file might have been moved or deleted after you added it.)  Try searching for the file and adding it again.  To search for and add files on a particular drive, or folder and sub-folders read Search Folder.

  9. No Audio in source file for conversion to WMA.

    This message is shown if the file your trying to convert to WMA, does not have any audio information.

  10. No Audio in source file for conversion to WAV.

    This message is similar to the message above and is shown if the file your trying to convert to WAV does not have any audio information.

  11. No Audio in source file for conversion to MP3.

    This message is similar to the message above and is shown if the file your trying to convert to MP3 does not have any audio information.

  12. Profile could not be loaded.

    This message is shown if the profile you are using to convert to Windows Media Format fails to load.  This can happen if the custom profiles that are packaged with Digital Media Converter accidentally get deleted or replaced with some corrupt file.  Reinstalling Digital Media Converter will install correct set of custom profiles on your PC.

  13. Unable to read CD.

    This message is shown when the user is trying to convert a CDA file but the system cannot read from the CD Device or the Audio CD has been removed.

  14. DVR-MS file may be content protected.

    This message may be shown when the user tries to convert a content protected DVR-MS file.  The Personal Video Recorder (PVR) in Windows XP Media Center Edition, for example, might create such files if the content provider designated the content as protected.  A protected .dvr-ms file can only be played on the computer on which it was recorded.  Such files cannot be converted on any computer, not even on the computer where they have been recorded.
