What does E_FAIL mean? Whenever I try to import a video file from my harddisk folder - this pops up.

What is this program? What OS are you using. What conditions cause this failure?

What is this program?

From the pic you posted, it looks like the source or destination drive selected is incorrect.
Is your E drive a partition or a cd,dvd drive or other?

My OS is Windows XP home edition.

For the past three weeks I've been looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been looking for some simple, newbie-friendly free software that will allow me to remove the commercial breaks in my recorded DVD movies.
I know how to do this with my DVD Shrink software - but it leaves a one-second freeze-frame wherever I have made the cuts. I have been trying to overcome this problem.

My other problem is that I cannot understand the guides and instructions for the dozen or so software programs that I have tried to do the DVD reauthoring.... and bear in mind, this, despite my already knowing how to reauthor using DVD Shrink.

Everything I try produces some sort of pop-up notice which says 'no-can-do'.

If I could just overcome the one-second freeze-frame problem with DVD Shrink - I'd be happy with that.

Are all these programs still on your computer? This also could give conflicts. If you have been installing- and uninstalling various programs with same goal your registry might be "polluted "with all sorts of " stuff "

First of all

Download install and update Ccleaner
After installing and updating go to options - advanced and tick prompt for registry back ups
Now Start up in safe mode
Do two runs

a) Click on problems and tick all. Click on analyse. At the end you will be prompted for storing a backup.
This will be stored, as a default, in My documents.
:thumbsup: Click on cleaner click on analyse and accept all files to be removed.

Perhaps you should do a read around here
If additional help needed please let me know
