The original DVD drive went bad, and Dell replaced it with a Philips drive.
Itunes also was installed: it installed its own upper filters
Roxio then reported that there was no drive detected.
I un-installed and tried to re-install Roxio EMC 9 DE: and kept failing. "Setup Application has stopped working"
Read posts on how to do a clean re-install of Roxio EMC 9 DE. This time the install went thru.
But Roxio said there was no DVD drive.
Tried a lot, re-installed pxengine 4 to no avail: and for some reason tried the pxengine 3 version: and my dvd drive was recognized: and things were fine. I thought. I found later that MyDvd was not installed: and I could not make DVDs.
I have tried to do a clean re-install of MyDvd: it did not work."Setup Application has stopped working"
I tried a re-install of EMC 9 DE : it did not work."Setup Application has stopped working"
I tried a clean re-install of EMC 9 DE: this time the set up went through: but MyDvd was not installed.
I noticed today ( after trying for about two years) that EMC 9 wants Directx 9. My Vista has Directx 11.
Would that be the reason for MyDvd failing to install?
I have plans of purchasing Creator 2012: but will that also require Directx 9?
Can Directx 9 Co-exist with Directx 11.
Request some guidance: as Moviemaker is very basic.
