"Select a filename and path to write your RTV to."


Newtek Padawan
Every time I open DVDWS a file window pops up directing me to save an RTV. but when I do it says "The path does not exist. Please verify the correct path was given."

The drive it is looking for is not connected. How can I clear this?

I believe I ran into this a long time ago.
If I'm not mistaken, you have a "clip" in a file bin from a previous authoring job. Probably that bin is open when you enter DVDws, but that doesn't matter.
Look for the file in the bin (might be at the bottom, after scrolling). Delete it. (I think you just select the clip and hit delete).

This is actually a bug in the NewTek avi wrapper codec, but you can fix the problem by disabling the avi read/write feature in DVDWS. To do this, browse to C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\DVD Workshop 2 SE\vio and delete the file named uvavi.vio

Many programs that are capable of writing avi files will cause the same dialog to appear since they apparently check to see if a codec is capable of compressing/saving by opening a write handle when initializing the list of system codecs (Serious Magic Ultra is one example). Programs such as Windows Media Player which only read avi files do not cause this issue. I find it amusing that a program included in the VT4 suite causes the same issue yet nobody bugged it.
