  1. Ability To Edit Preferences Suddenly Gone...

    Jim: I didn't mention it, but I tested the functionality after every reinstall/install/repair I did. None of them worked.
  2. Ability To Edit Preferences Suddenly Gone...

    Jim: Thank you very much for the response. I did as you suggested, my install disk wouldn't go to repair unless I reinstalled the old version first. I did that, then turned off the anti-virus etc, did repair through the install disk, still didn't take care of the problem. Then I updated to latest version, still had the problem, then did repair through the install/uninstall dialog in Windows and that didn't take care of the problem. I'm thinking some sort of Windows registry or DLL has gotten hosed. I am working on alternatives to do the vinyl conversions I'm doing. A pity too, because other than a few odd wrinkles in the software, me and Sound Editor were establishing a beautiful relationship. I think to fix this I'll either need to know the exact registry file of DL library that is messed up or I'll need to do a clean reinstall of Windows which I'm not prepared to do. If you have any other ideas, I'd love to hear them, then I'll think about contacting Roxio directly. Thanks again for your help.
  3. OK all the background stuff... Roxio Sound Editor included with: Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus (Build 301B53B ENU) Windows Vista Windows 6.0 (Build 6002) Service Pack 2 AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ Memory 2GB About 2 weeks ago, after using this program regurlarly to transfer my vinyl collection to .wav files, suddenly I am unable to edit preferences. Examples: In the record audio dialog/box: When I click on 'Options' to change the recorded file type from mp3 to wav (as an example) the program freezes. Oddly, it doesn't show as 'Not responding' in the window task manager but will just sit there. Same story for setting options when using Export Track/Clips. Clicking 'Edit' for the file format to change the bit rate and depth and file type causes the same freeze as described above. I uninstalled the program, reinstalled, got the latest update and I still have the problem. Has anyone run into this problem, if so, how do I resolve it, and if not, any ideas on how I can fix this? I'm thinking it is down to perhaps a messed up registry but that is nothing but a slightly educated wild guess. Ideas welcome. Want to get ideas from those on the board first before I contact Roxio and go through that fun.
  4. This is in reference to the Roxio sound editor program that I got with my purchase of 'Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus!'. This appears to be a software issue, I am away from the computer it is installed on so can't give all the specs of my machine but I don't think that is relevant here. I am not only recording my various LPs using the product for the purpose of creating MP3s for import to iTunes but also just to save the recorded .wav files for archiving. When the program creates a recording, it saves it in a specific default folder as something like 'audio.wav'. Is there a way to have the program prompt the user to specify the wav file name saved and/or to have the program save the file automatically using the name of the '.dmse' file being recorded? At this point, I have to complete doing the recording, find the 'audio.wav' file, rename as fits my preferences, and then relaunch the '.dmse' file and then have the program go and find the changed '.wav' file name. Manageable, but quite a pain. Also, if I want to do a bunch of recording without editing the files, I end up with a whole bunch of files such as 'audio.wav' and 'audio1.wav', etc that have no relation to the '.dmse' file by just looking at the name of the '.wav' file.

This appears to be a software issue, I am away from the computer it is installed on so can't give all the specs of my machine but I don't think that is relevant here, other than the fact that the operating system is Windows Vista. There is a box in the record dialog to set the recording level. I find it almost impossible to 'finely' tune this level; I can use the mouse to move the slider, but this is very inprecise. There is a '+' and '-' button but this moves the levels in large amounts. I'd like to be able to more precisely change this level as different albums that I record have differing levels. Also it is important to me (and I think makes a huge impact on the quality of the transfer) to get the level as high as possible without clipping. I have messed with the sound recording properties in Windows, making the level the maximum (100) to get as much signal to the software but that hasn't resolved this.

This appears to be a software issue, I am away from the computer it is installed on so can't give all the specs of my machine but I don't think that is relevant here. I have been having very good success recording my various vinyl LPs using Roxio Sound Editor. My method is to record the album (all sides) onto a single file within the product. Then I go back and split up the tracks, edit the titles, do some sweetening, and creates MP3s for loading into iTunes. All satisfactory, except for a few things...I'll open a separate topic for each. Biggest annoyance is that there is a quite loudly audible click that occurs at the various points in the file where I separate the individual tracks. Some of my albums are in good enough shape to where you wouldn't know it was an LP that was ripped except for this. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
