  1. Blu-ray player

    It's not mentioned in the NXT 6 adverts and it's hard to find, but I think you need to buy the additional Blu-Ray plugin ($8) from here, if you want to work with Blu-Ray.
  2. In that case you'll either have to use a double-layer DVD, or compress the program file enough to fit on a single layer disc, because you can't trim bits off a program file and still have it run. If you compress it, you won't be able to run the program from the disc but will have to copy it off and decompress it before you can use it. Try using programs such as WinZip, WinRar, or 7-Zip, and see if you can squeeze it enough to make it fit.
  3. Nxt 6

    Yes, so did we. Unfortunately the brand has been "acquired" by so many different companies one after the other, there won't be any of the original people left and I fear the original vision has gone.
  4. Videowave Has Stopped Working

    Usually you need the very same software which made the files you want to edit. What are you having trouble with?
  5. Re-install Roxio Creator NXT

    The usual problem is substituting look-alike characters for each other, e.g. figure zero for letter O. However if you would send me a PM (private message) through the mail system here I can run your key against my own Creator NXT, and check it or make other suggestions for you. Is it standard NXT or the Pro version? Regards, Brendon
  6. Menu's Music Length

    Rachel was kindly thanking Malatekid and reinforcing his suggestion.
  7. Totally Miffed!

    Cindon, Have you installed the Content (about 230 MB) as well as the basic Program? I'm running my NXT 5 right now on this machine in Windows 10, and MyDVD in there is showing me 97 Themes. The updates to NXT 5 don't take away themes, so my guess is that you haven't installed the extra Content disc or download if you're only seeing a tiny selection of them. If your program is installed in the default location and you navigate to C:\ProgramData\MyDVD\Content\DVD\16x9\Backgrounds for example, you should see 187 DMSM files in that folder - it's 2 per theme, give or take. Please check your Content was installed, and get back to me.
  8. Xero, Thank you. I think we can agree you got off to a bad start for whatever reason, and it would be good if we can get past that so that you can tap into some of the knowledge accumulated by various board members. If you would send me a private message (mouse over my avatar and choose 'message') to let me know you've read this, I'll have the thread vanished so you can start afresh. p.s. The posts are all topsy-turvy because someone has been voting then down, and it upsets the sequence on this 'improved' board software. Regards, Brendon
  9. Thanks for that information Rob. I was busy trying to duplicate your problem and couldn't, so I was going to spend the afternoon on it. You've saved me a heap of fruitless work. Bless you! I now have an afternoon free, so I'm off to get an overdue haircut.
  10. Back On Track backwards compatibility

    Okay, I'm back. You haven't given too much of the detail I asked for Rob, but I think I can work out broadly what you were doing. I put some photos and videos and documents and music onto the drive and then did a One-Click 'My Data' Backup to a 1.5TB WD Elements USB drive with BackOnTrack [BoT 17] Version 17 from NXT Pro 4. The backup amounted to 3.10 GB and was about 3,000 files. All the files I expected to be backed up (given that the thing is filtering by category) turned up on the portable drive, and were restored successfully to a different folder by BoT 17. I then took the portable drive to the NXT 6 machine and hit Restore in BoT 19 - the NXT 6 version. Since BoT 19 didn't know what I had been doing on the other machine, I got no result from the "Use the latest backup" button and had to tell it to let me choose and then go search. It didn't find anything under Portable drives, but quickly found the drive under Hard Drives. It restored everything from the BoT 17 backup, without problem. Summary: For me Version 17 (NXT4) backed up more or less what I expected, and Version 19 (NXT6) restored it all without compatibility issues. I think there are only cosmetic differences between the two versions. You need to read the Help files quite thoroughly before you use the program, especially the parts dealing with categories of files to be backed up. Be Aware that you can't restore a system disk or a whole partition with either version (the Help files are wrong in this respect) because "Disaster Recovery" has been disabled for some years now. The help files haven't caught up yet. I hope this helps, Regards, Brendon
  11. Back On Track backwards compatibility

    RobL, Sorry I'm late to this topic - I live in a different time zone from most. The folk on this bulletin board are fellow software users, and not Corel Support. However we often know or can find out what actually works when Corel says it doesn't, or what just doesn't work when Corel says it does. I have computers here running NXT4 and NXT6. Would you tell me please, WHAT TYPE of backup have you done on NXT4 that you're trying to restore on NXT6? I'll need as much detail as you can give if I'm going to duplicate your efforts, so please don't spare the details. -which menu choices you used in BoT, and what settings? -what you backed up? (categories only, or additional files and folders, etc.) -what you were trying to restore, and how you tried to do it. With that info I hope to try the same thing and either confirm your result or perhaps point to something you got wrong. Regards, Brendon
  12. WinDvd 12

    Please read THIS TOPIC. It will tell you all we enthusiasts know about this unfortunate mess. Anything further you will need to try and take up with Roxio Support. Regards, Brendon
  13. User Xero, You were flaming others in your first post, criticizing and petulantly demanding that your question be answered only in the manner that you deemed proper. That is not an acceptable manner on this user bulletin board. On some other popular boards this behavior would have had you banished immediately, but here it resulted in derision from other users. What did you expect when you come in as a newbie in a combative manner, demanding assistance in your own terms and then complaining about the reactions that you yourself deliberately provoked? You appear to have the necessary intelligence. Please find the required manners to interact with this community without disrupting it. I am sure that if you frame your posts with consideration for others, they will respond in a like manner to try and help you. If you can't reduce your belligerence, this board just isn't for you. Thank you, Brendon (Moderator)
  14. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    More like what's referred to as "A festering pile of dog poo!" -and once you have it you MUST accept all the changes and 'updates', like them or not.
  15. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    Chris, Thanks for sticking with this, answering questions, and reporting back so clearly. It has been an interesting trip, and I've learned a few new things. Brendon
  16. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    Hi Chris, You're making progress. Since you had Farstone Virtual Drive but you uninstalled it, I think a Farstone driver may have been left behind and Windows has detected it. Try Method five and see what items the Revo uninstaller can detect.
  17. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    Hi Folks, I'm back. Chris, I installed Windows 10 version 1709 on a machine, and then installed Creator NXT 4. It runs fine! If you can get the obstacle out of the way and update to 1709 you should be good to reinstall Creator NXT 4. Roxio Virtual Drive This has been a big red herring. Windows 8 introduced a built-in virtual drive, so the Roxio installer was made to test for the Windows version and stopped installing Roxio's virtual drive in Windows 8 and above. There was no need for it, and it was likely to interfere with the Windows one. There is still a great deal of information in the Help system about Roxio Disc Image Loader but it doesn't get loaded under Windows 8 or Windows 10, so that isn't the thing that's causing you the grief!! Also, Roxio Secure Burn is quite separate from the virtual disc software (I've done a lot of work on Roxio Burn) and that has no connection at all to virtual discs. Having reached that conclusion, I'm not sure what's the best way of getting rid of the one that's stopping your Windows update. The best I can think of is Method 5, the Revo Uninstaller mentioned above. If you can use that to get rid of VirtualDrive 10, then you can update Windows and reinstall your NXT 4. Regards, Brendon
  18. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    Hi Chris, Thanks for that screen shot. I've been searching all over for a product called "VirtualDrive 10", but I'm not having any luck so far. It seems there are lots of virtual drive softwares around. The Roxio one is labeled "64_170" in the installer, since NXT 4 is Creator version 17. I notice the Windows Update box you showed had an "Uninstall and continue" button. Did you try using that to uninstall the App it complained of? I hope to have a drive cleaned off later today so I can put Win10 1709 on it and install NXT 4. While that won't help you get "VirtualDrive 10" off your system, it should show whether NXT 4 is compatible with 1709. I'll come straight back here when I have something to report. Brendon
  19. Error - editing movie

    I have never seen this error before, and I must confess I don't know what you mean by a "C-error" or what "NX" is, but if all your softwares are giving the same error then it must be something has gone wrong with your Windows system, rather than something has suddenly broken in all the various softwares. I found a reference to the error you showed in a message written by John Garth back on 20 March 2007 in this topic. It's the only reference I could find, and it looks identical to yours. Nobody seemed to reach a solid conclusion in that topic, and you haven't said which version of Windows you're using, but I'm wondering if the cause is either Internet Explorer or DirectX which have broken and need reinstalling.
  20. How To Remove Roxio Virtual Drive 10

    Chris, Myguggi's suggestion is the same as your 'Method 2', so you should expect the same result. Roxio has built a sort of 'reverse gear' into their installer which you might describe as running the installer backwards. It might do the job for you since the Windows uninstaller has failed. Method 4: You copy the Program files off your installer DVD or software download into a folder on your hard drive, and put a copy of CleanSystem.bat into that same folder where you see Setup.exe. Then you run CleanSystem.bat by double-clicking on the file, and it runs the Roxio setup in reverse. Here is a copy of the batch file. CleanSystem.bat I'm hopeful that this will work, but not really confident since the MS uninstaller has failed. Still, it's worth a try, I think. If it fails, you might need to go to method 5. Method 5: -Download the free trial version of the Revo Uninstaller, from http://www.revouninstaller.com/ -uninstall all Roxio software. When you highlight the software to uninstall, right click on it and choose moderate mode Afterwards Once you have cleaned NXT 4 out of your system, I don't think there will be much point in trying to put it back in. If you get the Feature Update 1709 installed (and if you refuse it Microsoft will hold you down and force-feed it to you because the medicine is now compulsory!) from what you've said 1709 doesn't like VirtualDrive. Roxio's custom installer doesn't allow you to de-select VirtualDrive because it's integral to the suite, so you're stuck! As you see in the screenshots, VirtualDrive is the droid you're looking for, not Roxio Secure Burn. Sorry, but I can't see a way around this. Regards, Brendon
  21. Friendly, Buying someone else's software is not a solution to your problem, it's just a way of avoiding the problem. I've removed the name of the software you were advertising. I hope even you will agree that it's not good form to use a bulletin board funded by one company to advertize the product of a commercial rival. Normally that would get your posting privileges revoked, but I acknowledge that you have been very frustrated by your problem, so I'm prepared to extend some compassion as long as you don't do it again. Thanks very much. Unless an actual solution is found to Friendly's problem, this discussion is closed for now. If anyone solves it, please send me a PM (Private Message) Regards, Brendon (Guru/Moderator)
  22. Yes. Roxio's menus are made a little larger by the DPI setting you use.
  23. Service Pack 3 notes?

    Broskimode, I haven't seen any release notes for that ServicePack, but perhaps Corel will update the 'Updates' page eventually - if they still do that. The SP2.1 updates the program to version 102B22A The SP3.0 updates it to 102B26A. This doesn't look like much of a number change, but the updater uninstalls large chunks of the program and then reinstalls new chunks, so a lot has been replaced. The updater has about 175MB devoted to GameHD_1x, about 16MB devoted to CPDecoderpack, and about 3MB each to GameCapHD_USB x64 and x86. Given the amount changed, it might take them a time to write up the release notes Hope this helps . . .
  24. Hi Steve, It's been 6 months. You never wrote, you never called . . . (grin) Okay, you're showing a message from Windows Installer, so I guess you managed to successfully download the .txt file and re-name it to .MSP and run it. Now the patch is complaining that it can't find the program it is trying to update? WHAT HAS HAPPENED to the software you were running (SP 2.0) which offered you the SP2.1 update? If it is unchanged it should have happily accepted the SP2.1. Has it been changed, broken, or updated already? Can you tell us what version is shown when you go to 'Help > About this software' ? Things are getting complicated, since Service Pack 3.0 was issued in the last 3 or 4 days.
  25. Thanks Steve, The "Roxio Creator & MyDVD 9.0 DE" is an OEM (reduced ability) version of Easy Media Creator 9. If you're worried about your EMC 10 CD going bad, use the program to copy the CD to a disc image (ISO) and store that somewhere along with the CD key. Then you're set, no matter if the CD gets stood on you can always burn a fresh one. Brendon
