Roxio Creator Nxtpro5 Issues

Question

I have been using Roxio software since before the Roxio 7.5 version many years ago to produce videos and have been upgrading to the most recent versions because of having to update my computer to Windows 10. I have found that Videowave (which I have used most over the years) is still in the same format and this is wonderful because I want to control every aspect of the videos I produce. (See my YouTube channel: travldtwoseven).

 

I have been experimenting with my latest version (CREATOR NXT PRO 5) and it appears Videowave is the same as previous versions of Roxio. THANK HEAVENS! However, I am very disappointed that MyDVD seems to be very user unfriendly. I loved the old version in CREATOR 2010 PRO (which, thankfully, I have running along side this new version). The menus in Creator Pro 2010 could be changed to either include or not include music; the background could be changed; I could make ALL of the videos to play thru (can't find that now) or click on each one to play individually............ so many aspects of CREATOR 2010 PRO (MyDVD) seem to have been eliminated from the new CREATOR NXT PRO 5.

 

I have no idea how to get from the "Magic Mode" to the "Advanced Mode" because every time I actually access the Advanced Mode, I am returned to the "Magic Mode"...........

 

MY ADVICE TO ANYONE WANTING TO UPGRADE IS TO "KEEP YOUR OLDER VERSION UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT THE NEW VERSION CONTAINS".

 

I have been experimenting with burning DVDs from .mpeg .mp4 files on my computer and the new MyDVD always fails when ready to actually burn the DVD. Error message 2147500035, cannot burn DVD.

 

My computer system: Windows 10, Intel Core i7 CPU, 860@2.80GHz, 2.79 GHz; RAM 8.00 GB, 64 bit

Not being a techie, I do not know what all this means; however, I do know that I had no problems with previous versions of ROXIO CREATOR PRO 2010. either with Videowave or MyDVD when I had Windows 7.

 

My suggestion to the Roxio staff is: Please make MyDVD work as it did in CREATOR 2010 PRO.

I want to edit the background of my menu, eliminate sound, and enable one click of the menu to play thru the entire production.

 

THANK YOU TO WHOMEVER READS THIS ON THE ROXIO STAFF............

I am also a Corel user from years back and also had to get new software for WordPerfect to work with Windows 10.... my "go to" word processing!!!

Roxio staff does not monitor this forum so you have to contact them directly for your feedback

 

In any case, I doubt that Roxio will revert back to the "old" myDVD. Someone at Roxio has decided that users are "simpletons" and can only handle a crippled DVD authouring program. THe "new" myDVD is the same as the one bundled with Corels VideoStudio but at least with VideoStudio you can still create DVDs without using muDVD.

 

I don't understand why you are having problems with toggling between Magic Mode and Advanced Mode. If Magic Mode is shown on the screen then you are in the Advanced Mode and if Advanced Mode shows then you are in the Magic mode. In other words, if you click on Magic Mode then you will be switched from the current Advanced Mode to the Magic Mode.

Thank you for clarifying Magic Mode and Advanced Mode. I was assuming if the screen says "Magic Mode" that's what mode I am currently in.

If Corel really wanted to they could reinstate the no menu option. Its all a ploy to make people fed up with Roxio to change over to Corel software that is probably why they acquired Roxio in the first place

The flaw in that thinking is that the Corel Video Studio and Pinnacle product both use the "new" and (not) improved MyDVD. :P

Well they ought to be ashamed of themselves. A simple thing like not having a choice of menu or not will defo mean I won't buy in future.
