  1. I have Creator NXT Pro with VideoWave 14 and MyDVD 14. I produced a three-and-a-half-minute slideshow with background music, photos, color panels, text, and transitions by using VideoWave. I've exported the production in output as a video file slideshow. I can view it on Windows Media Video. Also, in output, I sent the production to MyDVD. It looks fine. Now, I will be able to burn the show from MyDVD to a dvd disk, which I can do. Now, here's my problem. I also want to put the production onto a USB flash drive. I am going to be showing it to a group of people. I'm not sure what kind of media player or device I'll be able to use. But, I want to be prepared with both the DVD and a flash drive, if possible. So, my questions are--Is it possible to copy a VideoWave production to a flash drive considering the dmsm format? If so, how? If not, what do you suggest that I do instead? I'd appreciate your help. Thanks. Chris
  2. Thanks, you guys, for your help. I appreciate the time and effort that you put in on trying to help me resolve my issue. I've decided, however, to throw in the towel and try to return my product to Roxio and get my money reimbursed, even though it's been a little over thirty days. On the up side, though, I now have my Creator 2011 reinstalled and it seems to be working. Thanks again. Chris
  3. Originally, I wanted to get rid of my Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and just use one program for everything I do which includes editing and organizing photos, using photos for slideshow and DVD productions, and editing music to use in the background. When I saw that NXT Pro seems to be capable of being used for photo editing and organizing through PaintShop Pro, I figured that this would be a good opportunity to switch. Now, I'm not so sure. I think I'm getting cold feet, mainly because of all the installation problems I've had. I've had good success with Photoshop's organization and editing capabilities. I've also had good success with Creator 2011. What is your opinion as to what I should do? Thanks. Chris
  4. Wow! I can hardly believe this--I finally got my Creator 2011 installed! I decided to try one more time to install this program before throwing in the towel. I don't think that I did anything differently than I've been doing. I just copied the files from the disk to a folder on my desktop and selected setup.exe. I can now get into the productions that I've created. Now, if and when I get to the point that I can and want to try installing the Creator NXT Pro, do I have to uninstall the 2011 first? I don't want to lose what I've got. But, I would still like to upgrade to the NXT Pro. Should I attempt to install the NXT (if I can get the Registration Key issue solved) or should I just leave good enough alone? Also, while typing this, I got the reply from Digital Guru. Thanks for replying. I kinda figured that what you said is the case. Still need help though. Thanks. Chris
  5. I have really enjoyed using Roxio Creator products in the past and have been using them for a few years. I have been able to create some really nice slideshows/DVD shows using music backgrounds and photos that I've taken. However, I am now so frustrated and disappointed in Roxio, that I think I'm going to give up. I've been working on trying to reinstall my old Creator 2011 and/or my new Creator NXT Pro for weeks now and haven't succeeded. So, you can see that I don't give up easily. I appreciate the help that you guys have given me in the past and the help that you have tried giving me with my present issue. I've even contacted Corel about my installation problems and they are really slow to respond and haven't been of any help to me so far. Oh, by the way, the last two times that I attempted the installation of NXT, I got to the part where I have to put the Product Key in and it wouldn't be accepted. I guess that I've used it so many times while trying to install the program that I now get a message that says, "Key has been used too many times". So, here I am still--no Roxio Creator. However, one thing I would like to know is if the productions that I've created while using Roxio Creator 2011 (.dmsd and .dmsm files) and are saved on my hard drive can somehow be opened without having Roxio on my computer. If so, how? If not, does that mean that all my work is down the drain? I'm still looking to you guys for some help. Thanks. Chris
  6. Well, I'm back. I took about two weeks off from trying to deal with this problem of not being able to install Creator NXT Pro. Now, I want to work on it again. Today, I removed everything from my computer that I could that has to do with Roxio. I double-checked everything that is listed in "000012552 - Preparing your computer for installing Roxio products" and I think everything is okay. I double-checked the "Minimum System Requirements" and am still okay there. Also, as recommended in "...installing Roxio products", I disabled all startup items and my antivirus program. Then, I attempted to install the Creator NXT Pro. It seemed to go really well until it got to the installing of "Creator NXT Pro" with its "Updating Component Registration". Then, it started the rollback. I did this five times altogether and got the same results. I've attached a zip file of the log file 12-11-28 17-09.zip. Also, I've attached a file of the DirectX that's on my computer DxDiag.txt in case that's needed. I would still appreciate some help with this issue. I'm just not knowledgeable enough to be able to solve this myself. Thank you. Chris
  7. cdanteek, Thank you for your reply to my post(s). To begin, I, to the best of my abilities, deleted all remnants of any Roxio Creator programs with their folders and files from my hard drive. I restarted my computer. Then, I disabled all of the startup items in System Configuration. After restarting, I disabled my firewall and antivirus program. Then, I attempted to install my Creator 2011 using the Installation DVD. It ended in a rollback. I've attached a LogFile. It isn't the most recent. But, it is the most recent that isn't larger than the allotted 5GB. LogFile 12-11-08 10-45.zip Next, I went to Programs, located a Roxio folder that was put there by the download. I used the setup.exe to try to install the program. Again, I got a rollback. So, here I am with no Roxio Creation programs. I wouldn't care so much about this if it weren't for the fact that I cannot access my projects because they are .dmsd and .dmsm files. I really need some help in hopefully resolving this. Thank you. Chris
  8. Ivan, Thank you for responding to my post. Well, I did as you suggested. Only, instead of attempting to install the NXT, I decided to try the 2011 again, since it seems like a simpler program and might be easier to install. Anyway, the result was the same as explained in Post #1. Also, I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use the setup.exe or not. So, I chose to use that. I was going to send an attachment showing the log for this latest attempt, but couldn't find the attachment option. But, I watched the installation box as the program was being installed. It went as follows: "Welcome To Creator" (blue chrome window) There may have been something prior to this. But, I may have missed it. DirectX 9 Runtime Roxio Video Capture USB Roxio Creator 2011 PhotoShow Express Roxio Creator 2011 This where the installation starts rolling back. ends up in a box that says, "Roxio Creator 2011 Wizard was interrupted" The only thing that ends up being installed is Roxio PhotoShow. Now, what should I do? Chris
  9. I'm replying to my own topic. I was again studying the "Minumum System Requirements" for Roxio Creator NXT Pro. I went through them carefully while comparing them with my own system. I'm pretty sure that my system meets the requirements. So, I've listed the things in my system below: SYSTEM: Operating System: Windows 7 Premium 32 bit SP1 Processor: Intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz Memory and Available OS Memory: each are 3072 MB RAM DirectX Version: DirectX 11 DISPLAY DEVICE: Name: NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT Memory: 1521 MB Dedicated Memory: 24 MB Shared Memory: 1279 MB Current Mode: 1600 x 900 (32 bit) (60 Hz) HARD DRIVE: 175 GB free space Windows Media Player 12 Internet Explorer 9 Quick Time 7 TiVo If my system doesn't meet the requirements, please let me know. I still need your help. Thanks again. Chris
  10. First, I uninstalled my Creator 2011 from Programs and Features, thinking that was the thing to do before attempting to install the NXT. Then, I attempted to install NXT four times. Each time, after the installation was about 80-90% complete, it stopped and rolled back to the beginning. So, because I want and need Creator to open some projects that I'm working on, I attempted, two times, to install/reinstall Creator 2011. Again, I'm getting the same response as I did with NXT (roll back). I've tried to attach a couple LogFiles so that you can see that info. The "...28.zip" is for the NXT, and the "...44.zip" is for the 2011. LogFile 12-11-05 10-28.zip LogFile 12-11-05 13-44.zip There are more files, but they are too large for the allotted 5MB size. Also, the following is my system info, if you need it: Windows Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium System: HP Pavilion Processor: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz Installed Memory: 3.00 GB By the way, I had a similar problem a year or two ago that had to do with Creator 2009 and 2011. I contacted you guys and you were able to help me get the 2011 installed. I couldn't find the reply to the topic or I would have referred to that info. Anyway, I'd appreciate your help again. Thank you. Chris
  11. I had Roxio Creator 2011 on my computer from Dec. 24, 2010 until a few days ago. It was working fine during that time. Then, I opened VideoWave to edit a slideshow that I had made and the preview bar that is usually displayed below the slideshow pictures in the preview display was missing. Thus, I was unable to preview the slideshow as such. I did everything I could think of to get the preview bar to show up again. All the pictures and music seemed to be there, however. So, I decided to uninstall the Roxio Creator 2011 from my computer and do a clean install to try to get the program working again. I deleted everything on my computer that had to do with "Roxio" or "Sonic". Then, I went to System Configuration and disabled the Startup Items and restarted. Next, I disabled the Windows Firewall and the antivirus program. After this, I inserted my Installation DVD and started the Run Setup.exe for Sonic Solutions. Everything seems to go fine until the actual install where the status box says "Installing DirectX 9 Runtime". The progress bar goes a short distance and flashes for about 30 seconds. Then, the box closes and the screen goes to a window that says "Roxio Creator 2011 Wizard was interrupted." And the only choice is to click on Finish. I have been working on this for several hours and have attempted to install the program about five times and haven't been able to resolve this problem. So, here I am needing your help which I'd greatly appreciate. Below, I've included some information about my system. Thank you. Chris Windows Edition: Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 System: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard Company Model: m9150f Processor: Intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz Memory (RAM): 3.00 GB System type: 32-bit Operating System

    I decided to not do the screen shot. Instead, I redid the entire production. Then I burned it onto a DVD. It looks better when played from the disk. Thank you for your help. I appreciate it. Chris

    Thank you for your reply. I didn't even know what the "Prt Scr" key was until I read the link you sent. I guess that I never had a use for it until now. Chris

    Thank you for your reply. However, call me SILLY. But, I do not know how to do a screen shot. I looked in my programs under accessories and the only thing that I found is a "Snipping Tool" that, according to Help and Support, is what is used. But I do not understand how to use it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Also, I see no blurriness in my separate VideoWave slideshows. It's just the MyDVD menu that I made for the production. Chris

    I've searched through Creator 2011 " 'How-to' and Usability" and "General Discussion", but was unable to find an answer to my problem. So if this topic has already been addressed, please tell me where to look. Anyway, I am attempting to make a production using MyDVD. I have added three slideshows that I made in VideoWave. The actual slideshows play, look, and sound like they should when I preview the project. However, the menu page is blurry. The background, thumbnails, text, and buttons are all blurry. Also, I am attempting to add an intro movie to the production. I've only added one picture to that and it is blurry. I'd appreciate your help with this problem. Thank you. Chris
