  1. Run "Speccy" or similar to determine if your computer is overheating and causing the failure.

    If you bought it directly from Roxio/Corel then try these options.

    Videowave crashes immediately

    Sorry I was not able to be more helpful. Happy Holidays.

    Videowave crashes immediately

    As you can see by the errors shown near the end of the dxdiag.exe teat file, Video Wave keeps crashing with a Fault bucket 108443204824, type 1 error. There are other errors also. I looked for what that error was trying to say but I could not find the error description. Where did you get the NXT 5 -- commercial disc, download or disc from Roxio or a questionable vendor from something like e-bay? How many times did you try to install it? Did you have your antivirus active during the install? I saw that you used REVO uninstaller PRO. Did you use the Moderate Mode and let it delete everything that it wanted to? You were not able to run NXT6 and got a refund and now you have a similar problem with NXT5. There may be an issue with your copy of Windows 10. Did you look there? You may want to contact Roxio support (or Microsoft) to get the problem fixed.

    How about posting the dxdiag.exe result on the new computer? Post the text file and not the line by line result. Did you update the driver for your video chip/board after that first time?
  6. Since the OP has returned the Cyberlink program; perhaps we should close out this thread. The OP has Creator 2012; perhaps someone can suggest how he can get a menu the way he wants and still have room on the DVD?
  7. Save your self a lot of grief and spend $30 for "Sure Thing" Deluxe label maker. The label maker that is in the Roxio program is a light and corrupted version of an early version and hasn't worked well in several. iterations. Typically it remembers only the top two titles and forgets the rest. You would have to add the others manually and hope that they are not forgotten. If you get it just right and you printer allows for it, it will print to a CD or DVD.
  8. This topic

    I think that the OP wants to remove a MyDVD project from his computer.  He was probably able to remove the program but not the dmsm (or whatever the MYDVD extension is/was.

      I think I already suggested something along those lines Steve to the OP. Or suggested that he placed the program itself

      on his computer somewhere with some given name but the program can't find it. Not sure if he remembers what the name of the DMSD file is when he saved it.

      I haven't replied to his last post but I think you are probably right about what is happening.

    MyDVD alternatives...

    Keep using VideoWave and try the Free version of Cyberlink's Power to Go Essentials for the burning. When the trial expires, you will lose some of the advanced features but will still have the basic ones.
  10. Jim B said "Fortunately, I got it free" Was it free because you got it with a piece of hardware? If so, it is a teaser (OEM) version and may have several programs disabled. Creator 2012 is better than that BUT it depends on what you are doing with the software. Remember that high definition, 360 degree camcorders etc. are all relatively new and may not be in 2012 but should be in NXT4. Newer than those you may need to further upgrade.

    Crash problem

    … and also what Windows version you are running
  12. sknis

    Simply won't open!

    Please post the Windows dxdiag.exe text file so we can see what you are using and if there are any error messages. Did you have your antivirus active during the installation? What kind of video file are you trying to add (format) and what camera did you use to take the video. Did you transfer the video to a folder on your computer's hard drive?
  13. Also remember that there are several types of "jpg" compression files. It is highly unlikely but if all else fails, look at the source and compression type.

    NXT6pro--My DVD won't load, crashes

    Something is installed incorrectly. When you installed NT6 Pro, you should have "lost" access to NXT 5. Why did you buy MyDVD when it was already installed as part of NXT 6 (and 5)? Why are there subfolders for "Custom Brands" and "Sonic Text"? Did you buy that version of NXT 5 directly from Roxio or a reputable site or from a Vendor like one on e-Bay? That DIM.exe looks a lot like something from Corel and Roxio being corrupted (Read this) Did you buy both versions? Corel owns Roxio and has rebranded some of Roxio's programs for their use (and vice versa).
  15. I doubt that there have been substantial improvements in that program between 5 and 6. That is not a consensus but could be depending on how many others respond.
