  1. I network burned 4 plus gigs of photos from my girlfriends PC to my DVD R/RW for her. But I can only read that DVD on my PC that has Roxio installed on it, hers does not have Roxio and will not read the disk. There must be a way to not have Roxio brand the DVD disk so that those storage medium are readable every where including my DVD player at my TV. (error reading disk is what I get at my TV DVD player) Any help appreciated Thanks

    Dvd As Storage Not Readable On Other Pc

    Allright Jim, I used Creator Classic to drag and drop instead of XP explorer this time and it was readable on both PCs but still not on the DVD for TV, which is not as important. the main difference is that Creator Classic closed the session and I believe that to be essential. Thanks

    Dvd As Storage Not Readable On Other Pc

    Thank you, so what is the fastest way to store thousands of photos to disc, that can be read by any PC in explorer and if possible, be viewed on a TV via a DVD player?

    Dvd As Storage Not Readable On Other Pc

    I did not use an application within the suite, I used explorer in XP to drag files and folders. So the disk was never "closed" in a finalizing way. Can I no longer do the old style drag and drop of XP now that Roxio is installed? I notice when in the explorer that the disk in that drive has been labled "Roxio (D:)" even though I do not allow Roxio's Drag 2 Disc to start in MSCONFIG. I only have one DVD R/RW yet there are 2 listed in the explorer. Roxio (D:) and DVD Drive (E:) I did drag into the "Roxio (D:)" and maybe that is the whole problem. Right click on that drive allows me to disable Drag-to-disc for this drive but warns me that I will not be able to use the media thereafter. But I suppose it could be turned back on when I want to burn with MY DVD right? Perhaps I should have dragged folders into DVD Drive (E:) instead for quick storage.

    Transitions Not Burning On Mydvd

    Wow, thanks Jim....... I read thru the backdoor approach, and yes it will not be easy, but I may have to go there to resovle this transition issue because as you stated MyDVD is not the best place to do all the editing. Now that I think about it that would be the one other pertinent difference between the project that worked(dmsm) and the one that didn't (dmsd). thanks again

    Transitions Not Burning On Mydvd

    When I "preview" my movie in MyDVD all of the transitions (dissolves) work fine. But when I burn that same project none of the transitions work as they should. The screen will darken at the end of one frame and the beginning of the next where the transitions are supposed to be so there is some recognition but the full effect is not there. I have cut all transitions and replaced them, saved and tried burning again but still have the exact issue. I have created a previous project that worked fine, the only difference that I can recall is that I tried to adjust the elapsed time of the transitions in the project that is not working. But like I said, I cut them all out and replaced them so that should have been resolved if it were a factor. any help would be appreciated thank you

    Transitions Not Burning On Mydvd

    Thank you I will try this. Meantime now that I have created this MYDVD production that has one movie linked via a menu, is there any way I can open this movie portion (Roxio MyDVD Project)of the production in My Videowave (Roxio Media Production)and edit it there?
  11. "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way, Please contact the application's support team for more information" This happens if I try to open Video Wave or My DVD. Cinemagic wont even open. Any suggestions?

    Emc 9 Reinstall Nightmare

    Emc 9 Reinstall Nightmare

    Easy Media Creator 9, running XP SP3 (which is the only thing changed since EMC 9 worked on my system, it used to be SP2). I did another complete clean uninstall and reinstall and again have 2 error messages: one is RoxWatchTray9.exe Runtime error followed by the 6025 error and the same with VideoWave.exe. I have to admit that I assumed since I was logging on to Roxio to get here that I was ranting to those who might have some vested interest in its programs, now I know that I was screaming at deaf ears so my appologies on that front.

    Emc 9 Reinstall Nightmare

    this software finally worked on my PC for a while, then I got the error message that Runtime was terminated for some reason or another, I am told to clean uninstall, I do , twice, then a clean install, but no, CD Key issue, then another clean uninstall, still no, so then I find another forum and a fix I downloaded, finally a clean install, but what do I have then? The same error message that got me started 5 hours earlier, so that was a waste of time. Another forum says that " you may have to do this uninstall reinstall a few times before it will work right" You got to be kidding, why are we paying for this stuff? I have never heard of such a problematic piece of software. This Roxio stuff gets so infested into the works of our PCs that it cant even be fixed by the support teams. I have no doubt that I will be ejected from the "Roxio" site because I refuse to waste so much of my time and money without giving my honest opinion, but really what do I have to lose now? I have another couple of CD coasters for $70 to go with the half dozen that were ruined with the program and about 10 hours of misery to go with it, so you cant hurt me much more than that now can you.

    Emc 9 Reinstall Nightmare

    I found a "fix" for the cd key problem, so I was able to install. but I ended up with the same error message as before in my initial post except that there was an additional error message "R6025 -pure virtual funtion call " for what its worth Also when I went to my account to see what I have registered I noticed that the Key for EMC 9 Suite is different than the one I have on my CD jacket. Any thoughts?

    Emc 9 Reinstall Nightmare

    Well I did this twice following it to the "T" and still got the same message. I did notice that there were 2 other "sonic type folders in my registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sonic Solutions and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SonicSonic MPEG-2 Video Decoder could that be a problem? I am struggling with the idea that Roxio is so deep into my PC that I can not control it, I know of no other software that is this problematic to uninstall, lots of time wasted

    Still Images From Video Files?

    I assume there is an easy way to save one frame of a video file and make it a photo file, but I have not yet figured that one out, and the book or "help" arent giving me anything. So if you know how, please help thanks

    Still Images From Video Files?

    I moved it down from standard to basic hardware acceleration, (in xp) via the dxdiag you suggested and the sound is fine now, thanks again

    Still Images From Video Files?

    Thank you very much, while I have your attention, do you know how to adjust the hardware accelerator that is causing my audio to distort so badly in EMC9

    Generaly sick of Roxio

    Why is it that Roxio attaches to my CD writers and somehow encrypts or brands my CDs so that they cannot be read by any other PC that does not have Roxio installed? This is just so sick, like they have some ego problem or something and cant handle it. This has been a problem since the first time I used Roxio years ago, I finally had to just get the da*m junk off my PC. Now my wife gave me EMC 9 to make movies and my life is filled with stress, anxiety and remorse for ever having put this junk on my PC. I drag and drop files to my CD, they get burned on, then fine I can view them on the PC where they are stored in the first place. But should I want to take them to another PC and show the pics or move them there, I cannot, it wont even reccognize that there is a disk in the drive. I put another disk in that I created before I installed Roxio, and it works fine. Roxio Sucks so bad. I just wish I could get my fingers around the throat of the guy who came up with this evil concept. Then I would get some work done. I dont want to see "Roxio (D)" in my CD drive. I Dont want Roxio to have anything to do with burning CDs unless I say so. How do I make that happen without uninstalling Roxio and wasting her $70 gift?
  24. There has never been a more hassell ridden bunch of software. Not only does this software when installed create issues with my PC in many ways that make it dysfuntional, now that I have followed the instructions per this site I am unable to re install this very software. I get an invalid CD Key prompt and now I have two more $70 coasters There really should be a law.
  25. When I try to burn via My DVD the movies that I created in video wave my PC will just power off as if it were unplugged. I have defragged, allowed my system to set cache, lessened the burn rate to 8x, closed all other apps etc. pretty much everything I have seen in the immediate forums relating to hangs while encoding, short of changing the drivers. But this is not a Hang it is a Power off. Easy CD DVD 6 burned fine on the same machine Athlon 64 4000+ 2.41 GHz 1 Gb Ram NVIDIA GEFORCE 7800 GTX 233 GB HD That the system just shuts off is a concern. could the Ram just be overdriven and cause this? What on my PC would just tell the machine to shut down without warning? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance PS can I load the video wave movies created from EMC 9 into Easy CD&DVD 6 and burn them?
