Have a look at this  http://forums.suppor...on-do-you-have/  and tell us if this is the version you have?

If this is your version, what application are you using?.

You posted in the EMC 9 forum ...........please clarify what you have.

Is this the Hidef camcorder? If you recorded in HiDef then EMC 9 may not be compatible with Hidef video. You may need to convert the video to a format acceptable to EMC 9 or upgrade to the newest Roxio software (C2010 or C2011 due in the near future)

Yes, it is HD video mpg4 format. I don't remember if EMC 9 will work with mpg4 files.  Use "ANy Video Converter" free to convert them to standard definition mpg2 files.

I own a HD Xacti (dual camera) camcorder.  You may want to look at Creator 2011 since it will take the files drirectly and becasue it has a feature that will minimize shake from the mini-camcorders.  You can get a discount (about $30) since you already own a Roxio product.  Make sure your computer will handle BOTH the HD files and the program. Consider the requirements as minimums.

If you only bought it yesterday, go and beat them on the head with it

EMC9 is at least THREE full versions behind the current Creator 2010 (which would have been EMC 12 if they hadn't changed the naming system)

I do not have the same one but I do have an Xacti HD camcorder model VPC-CG102

I'm not sure what you mean.  How best to do what?  

Did you get the videos onto your computer?  If you have an old version of the program, you need to use the software I recommended to do the conversion and then use Video Wave to edit them/put them together etc.  After that, you can output them to DVD if that is what you want.  karri has some very good videos on Video Wave.  Hers are more to do with a slide show but it gives you some basics.  Just add your files as if they were images.  You can also look at these ; they are more on video editing and MyDVD.  Look in the tips and tricks areas of the forums for more help.

The first response we need to have is did you buy a 3-4 year old version of the software, Creator 2009 (2 years old) or did you get something that came with your computer?

Hi, I have got the videos onto my computer and now want to burn them to a disc to watch on the tv ? When I try to import the video to the Roxio software it shows a message stating, this file can not be edited so has not been added. The software is called Easy Cd and Dvd burning. I can't find a date on it , but it states copyright from 2004. When I play back the videos on my pc they play back via cyberlink dvd player and they look great! I just can't put them onto Roxio to burn them to a disc. Sorry to appear a little clueless I'm not to good on computers!!!! Thanks again Sue

I am afraid that your 2004 software is not able to handle the Hidef video from todays camcorders.

You will need a video convesrion program that is able to convert the video to something that the old program will accept. Or you can upgrade to todays software C2011 just released today.

Post 4 (and others) blue text is a link.  There is a link to Any Video Converter that should do the conversion for you.

Remember that you will be going from High Definition (approx 1920 by 1080 lines of resolution) to Standard Definition (720 by 480) if you make a standard DVD. The video will not look as sharp.  If you want HD, then you need:
1) a version that will handle the HD files AND a Blu ray player that will play AVCHD files or
2) a version that will handle the HD files AND the Blu-ray Player AND a Blu-ray burner.

You can always connect your computer to your HDTV and play the files from there with an appropriate video player.

See if you can return what you bought or do an exchange for a Version of Creator 2010 or 2011 Pro.  You will have an investment to make so it would be best if you read up on what you want to do.
