  1. As to your .ISO burning question, you haven't mentioned which Operating System you're running.  If you're still on your old Windows 8 Pro then I can't be sure what Creator NXT does in that OS, but in Windows 10 there's quite a difference between NXT4 and NXT6.

    If you right-click an .ISO file with NXT4 installed, you will see that the default action (what happens on a double-click) is set to Open, and you will find that a double-click opens the ISO with Roxio Creator.  This is set up by the NXT4 installer.

    However the NXT6 installer doesn't do this.  The default action is left at Mount, and a double-click will attempt to mount the ISO.  See the picture below.  NXT4 on the left, NXT6 on the right.


    Now you should also see options similar to, or same as those shown on the right above to burn the ISO if you don't want to go and manually run Creator's 'Burn Disc Image' or the separate 'Roxio Burn' application.


  2. . . . .Or you can tell us where you are in the process  e.g.-never installed or -already installed and want to reinstall or -partly installed and confused.

    plus what form of installer you have     -disc or download

    plus what sort of machine and operating system you have

    . . . . and then we'll have an idea of what your problem is, and how we can help you with it.  There are a number of folks here wanting to help you.

    Yes, i will.

    I also just did a full backup of my system - a last resort in case the system restores either fail, or, fail to fully remove (it can happen).

    Not a silly thing to do, Mike. (Should be a regular thing rather than last resort, though. - smile - There's nothing so secure as a full system backup)

    That's what I would have done if I had Power Director, but since I was without I've had to leave it to you gents.

    It's just that MyDVD is a former shadow of what is used to be, is awful, and is killing NXT. 

    I don't think that you'll get an argument from anyone here, Mike.  Alas, when Corel acquired Roxio it seems they decided to replace the fully-featured Roxio software with their own 'lite' version.  Perhaps it made sense to them?  Time will tell.

    Re: Roxio/ Corel Software Engineers


    That seems a bit sexist, however I'll assume the male-only reference was inadvertent.  :)

    You have already read in a thread you contributed to some months ago, that we on this board are not Roxio Technical Support nor are we employed by Roxio. We are enthusiastic users who come here to try and help each other. Roxio people don't often come here. 

    With that in mind, you may wish to send your message to the Corel Corporation where there is some chance it will be read by the people you're addressing, rather than posting it here where it won't be seen by them.

    Alternately, if you are still using Roxio software after getting your refund in 2014, you can send your message directly to the Roxio people by clicking on the Feedback button in the software.

    Regards, Brendon.

  6. That's true about standards, but in most cases other people have already made the choice for you. 

    In this case (as Jim pointed out) if you're making a DVD you're limited to 720 x 480 (NTSC), or for BD 1280 x 1024, so regardless of the native size of your image the software is going to resize larger images down to the standard size losing some of the original detail.  (In some cases if the native size is too large the software will crash and give you a black slide.)

    The Microsoft article was interesting, but if they're going to offer varied export resolutions in Powerpoint why not use a button instead of a registry hack?  Remember that increasing the export resolution doesn't increase the detail, just makes the lumps bigger.

    Question: Does the latest version of Roxio fix this problem?

    Nope!  Running Videowave from NXT 6 Pro, and results are the same.  


    Samsung uses a not-very-common Intel-type EXIF marker when it inserts metadata into photographs taken singly, but uses the more popular Motorola-type EXIF marker in its 'Burst mode' photographs. (I don't know why they use two different 'standards')

    Videowave in NXT 6 Pro still recognizes only the Motorola standard marker, and rejects JPGs with the Intel type marker. Re-saving the rejected JPGs with  common editing programs will reset the Intel marker to Motorola.

  8. Oops, Mick.

    2CH files are used in SACD audio, and I think your friend has given you an SACD ISO.  Super Audio CD is a disc format which was introduced in 1999 and was going to replace CDs eventually, except it flopped and died, and is nowadays used only by a few "audiophiles".  (See the Wiki HERE)

    You need a special player to play SACD ISOs, as they use a coding called 1-bit DSD while CDs use 16-bit PCM.  Creator 2016 might burn the ISO to disc, but it can't convert DSD to PCM for you.  Someone might know of a separate (commercial?) converting software.

    When You rename folders to old are you supposed to end up with the renamed version and the original version? Or should it just be the renamed version. Rovi_Corporation, Rovi_Corporation.old


    have shortcut on screen and when I right click for file location it shows the files from 2011 not 2018

    When you rename a folder to old you end up with the renamed version only.   This procedure is usually intended to get a folder out of the way so that you can install a new one, so after the new install you will eventually end up with two folders.

    It's not clear what you mean by the comment about 2011 and 2018.  What are you trying to do?

  10. So, Mick (clanp),

    We are all wanting to help you, and are waiting with 'bated breath for your replies to the questions in tbrewst's first post. 

    -How was the ISO made, and what contents (file extensions) can you see if you open the DVD with File Explorer?

    The suspense is building, so please come back and reply to him.  (smile)


  11. I would expect that it happens when you re-start Secure Burn.

    Secure Burn gets the drive letter from the table which is maintained in the \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices key in the registry.  You can change the letter assigned to the drive with Disk Management and the change will happen immediately for the operating system (File Explorer), but Secure Burn won't recognize the changes until it is re-started and reads the table again.  You can either restart Secure Burn, or restart the whole machine (which restarts Secure Burn also) to do that.

    Either way it's fixed, and your drive letter change will be persistent, so we can be happy.  :)
