  1. Finally got Roxio working. The registry fix for autoplay helped it to recognize the drive and then reinstalling Roxio yet again fixed the sound editor issue.

    Roxio Creator Nxt2 Sound Editor Hangs Up

    I was having the same problem. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and the problem went away (for now). My registry cleaner or perhaps another media player may have messed it up.
  3. I uninstalled and reinstalled Roxio (at least twice), cleaning all traces of the software from my computer each time and being sure to keep the virus software off. That didn't help; HOWEVER there seems to have been a problem with autoplay in windows 7 64 bit which was preventing the drive from showing up. I found a registry fix in a windows 7 forum which corrected that problem. Unfortunately, it now crashes when I try to use the sound editor to record from line in. It works for about 1 minute and then stops. Repair didn't work. I suspect this is a conflict with other media programs on my computer. I guess I will uninstall and reinstall again. Sooner or later, I will come up to the 10 times reinstallation limit in this software. It's very frustrating. For those interested in fixing the autoplay there is a downloadable file which can correct the registry and it enters the following: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ; Created by: Shawn Brink ; http://www.sevenforums.com ; Tutorial: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/216706-autoplay-enable-disable.html [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=-
  4. Recently installed NXT2 on my new Dell 8700 Inspiron Windows 7 Professional system 64 bit. IK thought it installed easily, but didn't try to use it to make a DVD until more than 1 month had passed so NO warranty and no tech support !!!! The Roxio secure burn and all the Roxio applications refuse to recognize discs in the DVD drive (+R Memorex, and -R Verbatim). I have removed the registry keys and reinstalled the DVD drive in windows, done a fresh installation of Roxio several times with antivirus turned off, safe boot on and all services turned off. All the hardware has up to date drivers. Nothing seems to help. Looking through this forum, I see no solutions. Also clicking on the Roxio start icon always causes the program to crash, although it is possible to get into videowave and mydvd by opening individual applications. Videowave crashes too often, as well. I have used Roxio many times starting with Creator 5 and continuing up through Creator 12. All have been buggy, but this is completely unacceptable. I can make DVDS with Windows DVD and Windows Movie maker. I would expect more from a company which seems to exist only to produce this kind of software. With this experience and lack of tech support, I see no reason to ever buy Roxio products again. Will try to install 2012 and see if it works. :(
  5. I have had Roxio products for many years and each time there are issues when I change computers or have to reinstall. After working with Creator 2011 and 2012, I recently (about 4 months ago) installed NXT2 on a Dell Inspiron XPS 8700 running Windows 7 64 bit. I really didn't use the program until this past week and (as with prior Roxio disc burning and video programs) finding it VERY buggy. Initially there was a folder for Roxio NXT, Roxio NXT2, and Roxio WinDVD. When I tried to open the shortcut from the start menu or my desk top, the splash screen with the Roxio label comes up, but then it says it has stopped running and Windows is looking for a solution. I cleaned the program from my computer, and also took off Corel Win DVD. I then reinstalled it, and reinstalled WinDVD. Now when I click on the shortcut, the program still crashes. If I click on Roxio under Start Programs, I can open individual applications but they are not running normally. For example, VideoWave sometimes crashes while trying to load movie files. The MOST annoying thing is that none of the applications are recognizing a blank disc in my burner. (Tried Verbatim DVD -R and Memorex DVD +R.) WinDVD and Windows explorer do recognize these blank disks. I copied a video as an .iso file on my computer, but I can't seem to burn it because neither Roxio secure burn, nor MyDVD find the disk! Any suggestions? Sharon

    Trouble Copying Dvd On Emc 9

    I am not home right now so I can't give you the exact manufacturer of the burners (one is TSST something. I think it is Toshiba). One is from HP that came with my computer and the other I installed myself. Both have worked in the past and I've had no trouble making CDs. I am copying a DVD of a violin performance that my son is using for an audition. It is NOT write protected. I tried burning an image of the disc in Roxio to my hard drive and then burning to the DVD. I also used Roxio copy disc in EMC 9. I have no problem updating firmware, but I don't think that both burners would need to be updated simultaneously. The medium is DVD-R. I tried Phillips and RidData. The Phillips one works intermittently, the other, not at all. I have been through about 15 discs. It works once then won't again. I could use drag to disc, I suppose, and copy the disc that way, but I'm not sure it will copy all the boot files. Sharon

    Trouble Copying Dvd On Emc 9

    I am trying to copy a dvd that I made. It is not copyright protected. I have two DVD burners and no matter which one I use the program hangs up. It reads the disc from either drive. Sometimes the copy works. Sometimes it doesn't. It recognizes the Phillips DVD R disc as blank media, and then I get an error message saying insert a new disk. I also tried another disck manufacturer, and that was worse. I have tried disabling drag to disc before doing the disc copy. Sometimes that helps, sometimes it doesn't. Any suggestions?
