    Dazzle Locks Up Computer

    OK- I spent the day reading all of the posts w/problems for the Dazzle DVC90 on EMC9. It kept freezing up or locking up when I hit the capture button. Success!!! I removed the old drivers and installed XP driver at http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/Ha.../readmeHW10.htm Mike

    Thanks- I am still hunting the web site and collecting suggestions. I also have too much to do to spend this much time, but I don't have another way to get my VHS recordings saved before they are history. My next step is the web....

    Did you ever get it to work? I just started this weekend and had exactly the same issues, but I think I got a clean driver install on the second attempt

    Activiation - "No permisson - Bad installation"

    James- my only point in mentioning the 30 apps I installed was that I didn't have problems w/them. They were what I had to reinstall since I did a clean install of windows, on a reformatted hard drive all for the EMC 9 problem solving. Don't know if I was clear before. So, that being said, are you recommending I reinstall again? I did that before and it forced me to a system restore since I wiped out something that was needed to operate the machine. That is why I went to the format and XP install, then EMC9 only and still had the problem Thank you for responding-Mike

    Activiation - "No permisson - Bad installation"

    Bruce- I too am getting the "the following codec(s) must be activated before using this application... and 'bad installation" error for the MPEG-2 codec. I have a 13 month old Dell XPS w/4GB of memory (added to insure that wasn't the problem), a 2.79GHz processor, 400GB of spare hard drive space, I have been working on this for 4 weekends. It started because MyDVD froze up when starting the burn, so I followed the instructions to eliminate the OEM installed Sonic/Roxio apps, clean the registry and bluescreened the computer. Did the system restore and finally got the machine running, but still didn't have Roxio running. After a lot of handwringing, I finally committed to a fresh xp install, so I did a complete format and reinstall of xp and installed roxio as the first software and still got the same MPEG-2 errors. After 4 weekends, I am reluctant to start this process again. I have installed 30 other apps on the machine w/no problem, except this one. There has to be something simple that is being missed. How do we find out if the product is being repaired by Roxio? Ideas?
