  1. Alright, another example. Titan quest. That game would crash after 5 minutes of playing. Two months in, no patch. I recently revisited the game -- I think its been out for half a year, or perhaps even an entire year. They've fixed the 5 minute crash, but I still get crashes halfway through the game.

    The "reality" is, it happens. Complaining on a user forum isn't going to get the patch out any faster, especially because there is probably no one who can affect the development of the patch reading this.

  2. To paraphrase someone else


    "You can please some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time" :lol:


    Wow, my mom told me that quote like 10 years ago... and its so true, though I didn't care at the time.

  3. Super Smash Bros. Brawl -- Original Release Date: September 13, 2006 Current expected Release Date: December 3

    Spore -- Original Release Date: sometime in 2006. Current expected release date: sometime in 2008, perhaps even 2009.


    Those are the first two examples off the top of my head. Computer products get pushed back all the time. If the company makes a release date, and then doesn't meet it, people sit around and complain "Why state a release date when you can't meet it". When the company doesn't make a release date, like in this situation, people apparantly sit around and complain "Why don't they come up with a release date".

  4. Thats pretty funny. The exact opposite is being complained about in the EMC forum. They have the 9.1 update for sale, but if you have 9.0 theres no updater available yet.


    Most of the time when you purchase new software it isn't the latest version. I don't know if I've ever purchased a product without there being an update for it somewhere...

  5. Invoke? Try sacrificing a goat or something like that.


    But more seriously, I don't know what comes with the DE version, so it might not have been included. I have heard of people with the DE version having Drag to Disc, so you might have it. Try grandpabruce's suggestion to launch it, and if you want to autolaunch it upon startup, go to start->Run and type in msconfig. Go to the startup tab. Look for "DrgToDsc". If it isn't there, you might want to consider a repair install or a complete reinstall.


    That being said, don't use drag to disc for long-term storage. You might wind up regretting it.

  6. You can't do it directly. Probably because of the fact that the templates are folders on your hard drive, and not files, and because of restrictions within those folders, the developers decided not to allow custom templates.


    You can still access the the stuff thats in the templates by navigating to C:\Program Files\Roxio\DVDit Pro HD\Content\Templates. Pick a template, and you'll see a bunch of files/folders in there, including "Images", "Button Objects", "Frames", and "Navigation Buttons".

    You can use the other tabs in MyDVD to import the apropriate parts of the template that you want, and then you can re-create the template menu.


    For example, to recreate the Architectural template, go to the images tab, and import the only image thats in C:\Program Files\Roxio\DVDit Pro HD\Content\Templates\Architectural\Images. Then repeat with C:\Program Files\Roxio\DVDit Pro HD\Content\Templates\Architectural\Navigation Buttons, etc...

    Now just reconstruct the menu.


    Or, just let DVDIt take its time at the start, and let it import everything to begin with.

  7. Go to file->Burn in MyDVD. It will burn the file as a DVD disc with menus. And it should be equally easy or difficult to do what you did in MyDVD as compared to Videowave (Actually, it should be easier in Videowave).


    As for automatically coming up on different computers, that is up to the individuals settings. You can put an autorun.ini file on a data disc, and that will dictate what gets run when you first put in the disc, however, you aren't creating a data disc.

  8. Sorry that did not work for you. I had done the clean install mentioned here, then when I tried to reinstall I got invalid key. That program worked for me. I suggested it to someone else awhile back, and it worked for them. Do not run from inside the Zip file. Extract to desktop then right click and run as administrator. I am new to this, so I have no other suggestions, short of doing the clean install, then trying that program again.


    Also make sure you don't have any antivirus software running, and make sure your system clock is accurate.

  9. Start->Run, type in DXDiag. It will show you your Direct X version. Go to www.microsoft.com and get the latest download of Direct X from there (should be 9.0c, June redistributable [sp?]).


    To update your video card drivers, go into DXDiag again, and go to the display tab. Your video card's name is in the top left hand corner, and it is usually accompanied by the manufacturer, for example, "NVidia GeForce whatever" or "ATI Radeon whatever".


    Go to the respective manufacturers website (In the above two examples, it would be www.nvidia.com or www.ati.com, but it could be a different manufacturer as well.) and look for "Driver Downloads" for your specific video card. Make sure you download the right driver.


    In your case, you said that you had a "NVidia 7300GS PCI-X w/512 Mb which was developed by dell". You might want to check Dell's website as well as NVidia's website.




    To change your signature (which is where most people put their system) just go to "My Controls" (in the top-right corner of the forum window when you are scrolled to the top) and then select "Edit Signature" (In the middle of a plethora of other options along the left).

  10. Want to create a cd from some restored vinyl's in the .wav format. I click on Add Audio Tracks and Media Selector pops up. Go to the folder of .wav files but no media files are shown only .jpgs.


    It shouldn't be this tuf, but I can't seem to solve the problem.


    Thanks for the help.


    kim :(


    using roxio creator 9 home

    asus crw5232AS

    sony DVD rw dru720a


    Check the filter settings (drop-down menu at the bottom of the media selector window), but its pretty odd that its only showing JPGs...


    Try using windows explorer to drag-and-drop the wav files into Music Disc Creator (I assume thats what your using) and open MDC by going to the windows start menu->All Programs->Roxio EMC 9->Audio->Music Disc Creator.
