View Full Version : DVD Overlay problem

27-11-2008, 04:19 PM
Hi all
On my Toshiba M 30 laptop I’ve got InterVideo Win DVD 4 and InterVideo Win DVD Creator 2.

When I start the first one I get the message “Create overlay failed. Please lower you screen resolution or colour depth and try again.”

When I start the second one I get the message “Video overlay is not available on your system and you will not see video in preview window. Ensure that your monitor is in normal landscape mode and close other applications using video overlay”

Both have worked well in the past so what has happened and how do I fix it? What is an overlay anyway?

Thanks in advance
