  1. I see, so you're saying that the reason the copy & convert window is too big for the screen is because the resolution isn't high enough- at least the vertical element. The horizontal component is ok, as it's 1024 pixels, but the vertical resolution is too low by 168 pixels. So, because my computer doesn't quite meet the system requirements, you can't help with this?
  2. Hi sknis, it's an Asus Eee PC 1001PX. It's set to maximum resolution, which is 1024 * 600, with 32-Bit colour setting. Not sure about the graphics card, it's probably built-in to the main board? Sound card- again, not sure, but the sound works ok, and anyway that's not the issue here. There's no built-in DVD-ROM drive, but I use an external USB one which was good enough to install all my software, and I'm able to watch DVDs using this drive. Really I'm just looking for a way to resize the copy & convert window so I can press the button! Everything works great, it's just that there's no restore button in the corner. Isn't there some shortcut to make the window resizeable?
  3. Hello, I'm having a problem with the Video Copy & Convert application of Roxio Creator NXT on my 10" netbook. I'm using Windows Home Premium 64-Bit. The problem is with the window, which opens in fully expanded format, but this is larger than the area of my screen, and I can't see the lower portion of the window. The Restore button is greyed-out, so I can't resize it this way. It won't let me drag the whole window upwards (it just jumps back down again), and as I can't see the bottom of the window, I can't grab the lower edge and resize it that way. As part of the window is outside the viewing area, I can't see or use the Go, Custom, or Clear List buttons. This isn't a problem on my desktop computer, as I can see the whole window- although the restore button is still greyed-out, even though I don't need it... Is there some way of enabling the restore button, or reaching the bottom edge, or even dragging the whole window upwards a few cm? Thanks (hopefully) for your help...
  4. Many thanks for your help, Myguggi, you've put me on the right track. For some reason best known to itself, my recorder (which is a Sony one, by the way) seems to write a VIDEO_RM folder only on DVD+R discs (none of the -R discs have this folder). I had an inkling this might be the problem, as it was only present on the discs which wouldn't copy. So, I copied only the VIDEO-TS folder to my desktop on one of the DVDs I wanted to copy, and used this as the source. This seems to have solved the problem, it's copying away nicely as we speak...
  5. Hi, ok, DVD+R discs typically have 2 directories. VIDEO_RM has 3 files, .BUP, .DAT, .IFO. VIDEO_TS has several .BUP, .IFO & .VOB files DVD-R discs have only the VIDEO_TS directoriy, which has only .BUP, .IFO & .VOB files I'm not at all familiar with any of these file extensions... Are you thinking that maybe one of these file types might be "confusing" video convert?
  6. Hello, I've been trying to use the Copy & Convert Video function of Roxio Creator NXT, to convert some DVDs I recorded off the TV into MPEG2 format. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. Some of them have converted perfectly, but with others, I keep getting an error message. As soon as the caching title process begins, I get "Roxio video convert has stopped working. Windows is looking for a solution to the problem." Later, Windows closes the programme. At first I couldn't make out when & why this was happening with some discs and not others, but I figured out that all DVD-R discs were copying fine, along with any commercial ones which weren't copy-protected. All the discs causing the error were DVD+R ones. My DVD burner is compatible with +R media, and plays DVDs recorded on these discs fine. Looking at the Input Formats section of the info on the box, I see that only DVD-Video is listed, which makes me wonder whether this application actually supports DVD+ Video discs? Should it be able to read from these discs, or does the source have to be on a DVD- format? Has anyone else had this problem? It would be great if some fix was available, as many of the discs I want to convert are the DVD- type!

    Video Convert Has Stopped Working

    Hi, I'm having exactly the same problem as Tom. I've been trying to convert several DVDs I've recorded myself into MPEG2, and it only seems to successfully "catch the title" some of the time. The rest of the time I get the same "Roxio Videoconvert Has Stopped Working" message. Eventually, I realised that the video convert was working perfectly with DVD-R discs as the source, but would not work with any +R discs. Similarly, it works fine with commercial recordings without copy protection. Ironically, most of the recordings I want to convert are on +R discs! Looking at the package in the "Input" section, I see that only DVD- is listed. Is this really the case- ie, will Roxio Creator NXT really only work with DVD-R discs? Is there any way round this?
