New to this forum. Made decision to try out roxio creator 2009 and not the other guy this time around. But I do not know which version of Creator 2009 to purchase.
Let me give a brief overview of system, want to do's, toys being used.
This my custom system:
os: windows xp home edition sp3 (fresh installation)
motherboard: msi k7n2 delta
processor: amd athlon xp 2500 barton at 2.20 ghz (runs as xp3200+)
ram: 2gb pc3200 in dual channel mode (2x512mb crucial, 1 gb cosair)
video card: agp Evga geforce 7600 gs (256MB DDR2 Memory)
drive C: sata 500gb seagate barracude with 16mb cache
drive D: sata WDC WD2500AAKS-00SBA0
Drive F: LITE-ON CD-RW SOHR-5238S
Drive G: LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1693S
These are some of the things i want to do:
I am in process of copy cassettes to pc using import deluxe and creating mp3 to put on my players. I also want to convert my cds to mp3.
I have not acquired hardware to copy my vhs collection to pc and subsequently transfer to dvd. I also purchased the Adobe photoshop elements 7/ premiere Elements 7 bundle last nite at BB with hopes to start working with my home movies soon.
These are the toys in my household:
120gb ipod classic
8 gb sansa fuze
blackberry curve phone
palm centro phone
2 pantech matrix phones
portable cd and dvd players
So, i am trying to consolidate software into a centralized theme for the whole family to use.
And from my readings here, there are 3 versions of Creator 2009:
creator 2009 ultimate
creator 2009 special edition (has hardware to hookup vcr to usb)
In one of the postings here, it was mentioned that creator 2009 and creator 2009 se are the same but only diff is the usb hardware. In another post, it was noted that there are diffs in the features as well. Can someone clarify this for me ? If there are feature diffs please note them.
Also, trying to figure out what advantage it is to use the Ultimate version, Since:
1. i dont have hd or blueray
2. i dont need the backup.
3. i read in post that SmartSound SonicFire Pro provides only few tracks initially, you have to purchase ones as you go.
4. the only item that looked interesting was the BIAS SoundSoap™ Standalone Edition to remove unwanted noise from copies of tapes, records and so forth.
5. did i miss out on any other feature here the ultimate has over the standard version?
I know this is a lot to ask but any assistance/guidance is appreciated.
