    Can't Even Get Started With Your Software Disc

    Although his post may well be meaningless I have to say I do tend to agree. I took mine back to the shop and got a full refund. I will never try anything Roxio again. Absolute waste of my time and complete false advertisement.......Easy? My a**se.

    I'm safe there as I don't have anything illegal on my pc.

    When I said I was simple with computers I wasn't joking. I don't even know how to screen cap my start up menu in 1st place Think I may just cut my losses actually and return the roxio kit and get my money back. Can't believe how time consuming it has been for something that's labelled as easy.

    Thanks Jim. I only get "Roxio Easy VHS to DVD" app on my start up menu and that's all. I have tried the prep routine and still no luck. Even tried taking off and re-installing the Roxio program another 3 times from scratch but no joy. Obviously it's on there but I just don't get the option to choose VIDEOS-MOVIES. So frustrating.

    Good news is the external dvd hardware works a treat. The bad news is I have downloaded Roxio easy vhs to dvd but when I open the program I only get the option to burn audio cd's or mp3 cd's. Could really do with your help again please?

    Thanks, unfortunately I'm a bit simple in that respect lol. Although I do know the difference between cd and dvd :-)

    I have done that and it does register a dvd driver. Like Jim said, I think the laser may be knackered. Think I'll just get an external driver and give that a go. Just found one on e-bay for £15 so A bit cheaper than buying or have this tower repaired. I'll let you know how the external driver works. Thanks again for all of your help.

    Thanks Jim. Just tried watching my kids toy story 3 in it and no good. Either that or it just didn't like toy story :-@ Many Thanks.

    Thanks very much. Very helpful. It is definitely a dvd rw but may well be broken as I've never tried using it before now and the tower is quite an old one. May try buying an external dvd rw and trying that. Do you think Roxio will work via an external dvd drive? Thanks again.

    Thanks guys. The disc is silver in colour and yes pretty sure it's a dvd drive. Bought it from Currys so should be decent enough.

    If I put the disc into our ps3 I can read all of the data. However, when I reinsert into my pc there is nothing there.

    It reads any other disc I put in but not the roxio one for some reason.

    The Disc doesn't even register so I can't even manually click on "setup" if I go to c drive.
  15. Just got Roxio "easy" (phaa) vhs to dvd for xmas so that I could transfer all of my cherished home vids to dvd but my computer won't even read the issued software disc. Apparently it's compatible with windows 7, vista and xp. I have xp but I insert the disc and nothing happens. Any danger of some advice on this as I have never had so much trouble in installing anything to my pc in all my life. Far from easy that's for sure.
