Menu Styles In Mydvd 2012 Pro?

Question

I recently installed Roxio Creator 2012 Pro in Windows 7 64 bit. Installed and runs great.

 

In MyDVD, there are 6 4:3 menu styles, and 3 16:9 menu styles. Are there suppose to be more?

I only had the 1 disc. The 2nd disc was damaged.

 

I remember my older 2010 Pro had more menu styles.

Yes, there are more. Those initial styles are just to get you started, there are a lot more.

The extra styles come with the "Content" disc.

Thank you for replying. Additional Styles on Disc 2. Yes, I thought so.

 

I've found you gurus here on the forums over the years a valuable resource, and have tried not to ask the stupid questions. It's like the saying... "There are no stupid questions - just stupid people who ask stupid questions"! lol

 

Speaking of stupid: It was so stupid damaging the DVD. I always keep my DVD's in a safe place - well, er, uhh, I guess not this one!

 

I was about to purchase the latest NXT when I researched here about it, and found out that Correl ruined MyDVD and other features. So, i went out and got 2012 Pro, and promptly damaged disc 2!

Found a used copy of Roxio Creator 2012 Pro with both discs on eBay. It will arrive in a few days. Although I probably won't be able to use the key with it (I already have my purchased copy registered), I'm getting it just for Disc 2!

 

My favorite MyDVD menu style was the 'Forest' menu style - whatever that was called. I would usually change the backgrounds - It was the text, colors, icons, I liked the best.

 

As a side note... the British TV series 'Last of the Summer Wine'... starting with series 21, which was released on DVD with a date of 2012... The DVD menus look exactly like the 'Forest' MyDVD menu style with their own background & music. I wonder if the used Creator 2010/2012 MyDVD. Go figure!

A reference to the authoring package may be embedded as Provider ID in the VIDEO_TS.IFO, e.g. ‘COREL_CORP.’, unless the authoring people manually changed that line. If you’re curious, try opening that top IFO file in a Hex Editor (near the beginning, around offset 64) or even a regular Text Editor.

Update...

 

Got my replacement ROXIO 2012 Pro discs - both discs. Uninstalled and re-installed (Followed the guidelines) successfully. I suppose I could have just executed the install from the 'Contents' folder. I think there were some other issues...anyway, it all worked out.

 

Interesting enough, even though the eBay listing said it was the 2 discs in their sleeves and the booklet only, I received the retail box. The registration tags was on the sleeve, and it registered successfully! So now I have have two retail registered copies. Or, maybe they just don't care for legacy products? We'll see.

RM Discount Outlet (rmdiscount)

 

Looks like they carry used/surplus items.

They were the only ones that had a description of '2 discs'. All the other listings said 1 disc. And all the listings, including this one, stated that the registration codes would probably NOT work.

The box was definitely used. But, the CD's & Booklet were in perfect condition.

 

I had originally contacted Roxio (Corel), asking them if I could get replacement discs, or, purchase Creator 2012 Pro. They replied NO.

 

One of the risks of purchasing used software via online websites, is you may receive 'copied/hacked' disc(s) and hacked registration keys.

This was original box, booklet, discs & sleeves, and registration keys.

That was excellent for you, Mike. I guess they must have bought up old stock when Roxio stopped selling that version.

 

It's good to know that it's still possible to find this one.

You were very lucky Mike getting a software program on ebay that actyally was the real one.

As you suggested it is very risky .
