    Changing the channels of a stereo signal

    Glad it worked that well. Thank you for the info.

    Changing the channels of a stereo signal

    It would seem to me that if your input audio is only on the right channel, your output should be "Right on both". However I don't have a lopsided audio to try it with. You appear to be in the perfect position to try it out. Would you please do so and let us know what happens? Thanks, Brendon

    Service Pack 3

    Hello, Here's my copy of Service Pack 3 from January 2009, along with a screenshot of the download page at that time. It's all I have on Creator 2009 Service Pack 3 and the download links are long gone, with several changes of ownership of the Company. Creator2009SP3.exe Regards, Brendon p.s. for Service Pack 4, please see Malatekid's post HERE, as it does contain a live Roxio download link for SP4. You might need to install SP4 in safe mode.
  4. A problem is that in each case we don't know what is in the box, or who made it. Without that info we can't see if the manufacturer(s) have issued corrected firmware or are even still in business. [Hope it's not like the '128 GB pendrive' I saw which held only 8 GB, or the '1TB 2.5" drive NEW from China' on my bench, which is really an old 160 GB drive with a fake label and 2,500 power-on hours on it.] I'm sorry I can't help you, but I think it's a matter of what the drive is reporting to your computer about presence or fullness of discs, rather than the Roxio software and CDBurnerXP misinterpreting it.
  5. Hi Aycorn, I've been off trying to find what brand/model of DVD drive is used in those two external drives you have. Sometimes a firmware update is needed when drives won't recognize the presence of an inserted disc, or think the disc is closed when it isn't, but you need to know exactly what drive you have before you can progress. I couldn't find a MUSC brand drive in any of my searches. I found that Amazon sells Cocopa drives, but going through the reviews I found a very high number of complaints about them, and couldn't find anything about what was inside them. The unit originates in China. Complaints included many that were DOA, and many that wouldn't work in Mac or PC, and many that had stopped working after a short time. A reviewer said the "Instructions" were written in micro-print on a tiny piece of paper, and there was an offer to send drivers for the unit "if requested". The problem was there was no model or serial numbers on the unit or the box, and there was no address to send a request. Another customer said although it's advertised as a USB3 interface, his machine reported it as USB2. In any event, Amazon says "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock. " I invite you to read some reviews for yourself, at the bottom of the page HERE, but I'm afraid you may have bought yourself a lemon or two. Best regards, Brendon
  6. Plug and play? Yet one fails to recognize a disc in the burner, and the other one thinks the disc is full. If they both worked properly under other software but not in the Roxio suite, that would suggest the Roxio software's faulty. However neither of them are faultless under CDBurnerXP, and the internal drive seems to be working fine. Try your disc in the internal drive, and I'll think some more about this.
  7. Hello again Aycorn, Here we are in the Easy CD & DVD Burning forum. I'll bet you can't find your way back here without setting a bookmark, or going back through the Easy CD 4 & 5 forum. I don't know why it's hidden down here. (It reminds me of that notice in the Hitchhiker's Guide, "It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.' ") Your questions, from last to first: -If the problem is amplitude clipping, I think you may need to reduce track volume. It's worth trying, anyway. -Version numbers - The latest version of the main Roxio Creator suite is Creator NXT 7 at the moment. A long time ago a severely cut-down 'lite' version of Creator was marketed, called Easy CD & DVD Burning. They have now made a more modern severely cut-down "lite" version called Easy CD & DVD Burning 2, and that's what you have. See here (LINK) -The external burners - This is the difficult one because I don't have access to those burners. However I do know that the Roxio software does much of its disc I/O through the operating system, rather than independent of the OS. I think the problem is between the drives and Windows 10, rather than a problem with CDburnerXP or the Roxio software. Did the external drives come with driver software, or have drivers available on their manufacturers' sites? Brendon
  8. Good Morning Aycorn, What you have is the cut-down "lite" version of one of the older Creators - the type of version which came to be known as "in the Red Box". It dates from around Creator NXT. The latest full version of Creator is NXT 7. Different versions often have specific problems, so that's why we have to ask your version. Now we've ascertained what you have I'll get this thread shifted to the 'Redbox" forum. Then we can work on your actual problem. There's no reflection on you that you started here. Roxio has engaged in some quite confusing product naming, and it's not your fault.
  9. Aycorn, Which Roxio product do you have that you are needing help with, please? You posted in the old legacy Easy CD Creator 4 and 5 forum, but that won't run under Windows 10 so you obviously haven't got that one. You are saying you have Easy CD and DVD Creator 2 and want version 6, but there's no such software. When you're running your software, and in the Home screen you go to the top bar and click the Help button you should see an "About" option. Click on that and you should see an "About this software" display. Please tell me the exact name of your software so we can answer your questions. Thank you very much, Brendon

    MKV Support Dropped in Nxt 7?

    Corel's "MyDVD" is a mere shadow of the old Roxio version.
  11. If NXT 7 is so 'unfit for purpose' and you purchased it directly from Roxio, you have 30 days from purchase to apply for a refund. It appears you should do that, immediately.
  12. Yes, I can explain it. It's an error in German that someone hasn't bothered to translate to English for this forum. In English it says: "The current display settings do not meet the minimum requirements for this application. Please change the screen resolution to at least 1024 x 768 pixels and the colors to at least 16 bit." What this shows is that you had your computer settings wrong when you were running Creator 2012, and you are still using the same settings when running Creator NXT 7. To fix it: You haven't told us what operating system you're using, but since you have a brand new laptop here are the instructions for Windows 10. - right-click with your pointer on an empty piece of screen - select Display Settings. In there, go to Scale and Layout. Reset that figure to the recommended 100%. Now try your videowave. Regards, Brendon

    MKV Support Dropped in Nxt 7?

    Steve2006, If you recently 'upgraded' to Creator NXT 7 to use MyDVD for this purpose, I'm afraid you're going to be sadly disappointed. While Roxio MyDVD handled this job very well, it was quietly replaced by Corel's MyDVD several seasons ago and the Corel version has a severely reduced functionality. Corel's MyDVD will only take these files as input: MKV and a number of other formats are conspicuously missing. If you bought NXT 7 direct from Roxio within the last 30 days you can apply for a refund, but you should do that promptly. If you are outside the time limit or bought the software somewhere else, you may have to convert your MKVs to another format such as MP4 as suggested by Redwagon, to use this lite MyDVD version.
  14. Sknis: Thank you. I suspect Snagit converted it. CDanteek: Thanks for the confirmation. Redwagon: No reply. Tony: Glad the refund is on its way. You noticed that about NXT? Most, if not all of the Roxio modules are still 32-bit and don't seem to change much from version to version, apart from when MyDVD was quietly killed off and replaced with a much simplified Corel product. (I suspect there are few original Roxio staff left) I'm pretty sure it's not the 4K video resolution that is causing your problem, but failure of the software to handle the type of audio which is output by the Sony AXP 33 camcorder. In any event, you need different software. Go well, Brendon
  15. Hi Tony, 4K not supported? I guess they should advertise that 'fact' at all points of sale, then? However, since we're having trouble with the audio but the software handles the video, it seems unlikely that 4K video resolution is the problem. In any event, it seems you need a refund. Cdanteek, Redwagon, Sknis, (and anyone else who tries it) in case it helps to solve this, would you each tell me if you're using 32- or 64-bit Windows, and if your Videowave sound plays okay with the attached clip? - I'm in Windows 10, x64, and get loud random noise but good video. Thank you, Brendon.
