    Laptop upgrade and Vista

    Usually, the WindowsUpdate would take care of that; and/or the Windows 7 drivers from the manufacturer. Though, as to the latter, the life-cycle is becoming shorter and shorter so that the product may have already reached end-of-life when it rolls out to the market... ;-)

    Laptop upgrade and Vista

    if WinXP is working fine, do NOT use (i.e., downgrade to) Vista. It is a resource hog (i.e., add add'l 1.5GB RAM!), does not support your chipset and several peripherals (several printers come to mind), and keep annoying you with "are you sure" dialog boxes! if you want to upgrade, go to Windows 7; that one addresses shortcoming of Vista!
  3. Please do follow Brendon's suggestion. Based on the idea of my crystal ball, I'd offer to restart the PC first, do not start any other applications, create .ISO file instead of writing directly to disc, and do not touch the PC if not really necessary. Chances are resources on your Vista PC are pretty much maxed out, and more often than not application do not realize requested resources will not be provided by the operating system and sit and wait... What you also can do is start the Windows Resource Monitor ("%windir%\system32\perfmon.exe /res") or using Control Panel ("Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools\Advanced Tools"). Then in the CPU section of the Resource Monitor right click on the Task of the Roxio application, select Analyze Wait Chain to find some clues (e.g., display of "Waiting on Task"...). Then kindly report back. Here I am adding an example:

    Verify Disk

    ... aside testing the disc with a compatible player, I'd copy the contents of the disc to harddrive to ensure the disc does not have any bad spots causing, say CRC or unreadable errors.
  5. To further clarify, per Microsoft.com website: Support for Windows Vista without any service packs will end on April 13, 2010. Support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on July 13, 2010. Note: There's no SP3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you’re running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014. So, if you do not want to upgrade to Windows 7, get SP2 for Windows Vista or SP3 for Windows XP [32 bit], respectively.
  6. Support for Windows XP with SP2 and Windows Vista Ends July 13, 2010 Just passing the info along; further information see Microsoft.com.

    .flv to .wmv conversion

    Real player comes to mind (right-click on the movie & select download; use IE as Firefox as too often new updates rendering such plugins unusable!); it will not work though, when the video clip has been marked as copy protected.

    reduce file size

    This is a feature within Windows since quite some time (no need to have Roxio replicate that! ;-)) Click on the pictures in questions, then right-click, select Send_To..Email_Recipient; then you will see a dialog box where you can choose to send pictures in original size or smaller. Hope this helps.

    R6025 Error

    ... only containing "DivX\", but not "SharedCom\" underneath.

    burnning from VHS to DVD

    each VHS tape has a serial number and that has to correspond to the calendar day when copying! Ok, I'll may eventually, perhaps, under certain conditions, if asked nicely take it back... You will have problems with commercial video tapes encoded with Macrovision as copy protection.

    DMA Scheduler Error at PC Startup

    could be some Spyware/Virus/Malware causing this behaviour... check you system.

    R6025 Error

    you are running Roxio 9 (v.9) not Roxio 2009 (v.11); what is your operating system?

    4:3 vs. 16:9 video formats

    As you can now get the old animated Disney movies on Blu-Ray, they added extra (static) landscapes to the left and to the right of the original movie to fill the gap, say, some trees while Snow White was walking in the forest, etc. Need some getting used to...

    creator 2009

    So why did you buy Roxio Creator 2009 when it is already about 2 years old, and the more recent Roxio Creator 2010 is out? And why didn't you shop around and get the Roxio Creator 2009 for about $45 or less? And why wouldn't the program run? Have you verified the system requirements listed on the box to match the system you have tried to install the application to? Any error messages you could share so that we can pin-point the problem? Oh, and last but not least: it is spelled "disgusted" (with a 'g'). So many questions... Hope it helps.
  15. Hi Joel, Thank you so much for your update. Again, I never used that Roxio tool — generally, I find better ones developed by dedicated and highly professional folks elsewhere. In your case, could very well be that some elderly registry entries stored values such as, say, "do not show me this dialog box again", and links to different and meanwhile outdated hooks inside the Windows Kernel... I found these (Freeware) tools very valuable and they work on XP/Vista/Windows 7 both x86 and 64 bit: Pismo Technic's Pismo File Mount Audit Package and MagicISO, Virtual CD/DVD-ROM Thank you again!
