  1. The reason for asking about what constitutes "huge photos" is that the descriptions were rather vague until Brendon provided his post. I Have never

    encountered blank panels when creating slide shows in Videowave. Many of the digital images that have been used are in the range of about 4900 x 3300

    pixels in size @ 350 dpi resolution. Any number of these digital images have been edited in some manner, some extensively, but none have ever caused a

    blank panel.

  2. I would like to jump in at this point with a question regarding the reference to large source photos or file size. What is considered photo source size and file size? Is this a reference to pixel size or the actual physical size of the photo? What is really a huge size?

  3. Another way to lengthen (or shorten) the duration of each image is to click on File in the upper left corner of VideoWave. This opens a window where Production Settings is clicked on. This opens

    another window. This window offers the ability to adjust the duration (in seconds)of each image throughout the production by clicking on either the Plus or Minus buttons. You can achieve a very close

    match between the length of the audio and images using this method. If after performing this adjustment the match is close but not perfect, that's when I would use the "Fit Video to Audio" as

    suggested. There are occasions when the mismatch between the length of video and length of audio is too great for "Fit Video to Audio" to work. At least that has been my experience.

  4. Not sure Roxio Creator SE can be considered an OEM piece of software. Roxio Creator SE was offered for sale at computer software stores. I can confirm that it was because that's how I obtained my copy. The SE, or Special Edition was not a reference to it being an OEM piece of software, rather it referred to the USB analog audio/video conversion device that was included in the software package.

  5. Finally got through downloading and installing the 34 updates. Did it in multiples of 9 or so updates at a time. The average time required to complete each download and install was slightly over

    3 hours per session. The overall process took more time because each update was scrutinized to avoid downloading and installing updates related to configuring the computer for updating to Win 10.

    I've read that in some instances a computer was automatically converted to Win 10 without the knowledge or approval of the owner. In fact, in one report the owner sued Microsoft for $10,000, and in

    this instance Microsoft decided not to fight and just pay the money to the litigant. If anyone wants to avoid updating to Win 10 there is a application called Never10 that can be downloaded and

    installed that prevents a conversion. When it is run a window appears indicating if your computer has the KB update that accommodates Win 10, it will then show a button for disabling Win 10. If at a

    later date you wish to convert to Win 10, the app is run again upon which the enable button is activated. Hence, the app should be downloaded and installed where it can be easily found.


    Having stated that for the foreseeable future I'm not interested in converting to Win 10, of the Gurus that use Win 10, what has been your experience? Is it user friendly? Do you like it?

  6. Sorry about the link in my post. It worked when it was tried with Google. deweywright's link works. It seems like an informative Windows website. I've clicked on previous articles within this

    website and learned more info about MS updates than what MS provides, including those KB updates related to upgrading to Win 10. Now that this website has been found, I am going to continue to follow

    it closely.

  7. My computer was set to check for updates and ran for 6 hours before the list of updates appeared. That was yesterday. Nine updates were selected out of the 30 updates available for download and

    install. The computer has been on downloading updates for a little over an hour this morning. Thus far it shows zero updates downloaded. There must be a problem with MS update, not users computers.

  8. Here's the latest on downloading and installing updates. Selected one update to download and install. It was a cumulative IE 11 update. I didn't sit in front of the laptop while it was in the process of downloading and installing. As best I can determine it took about 15 minutes to complete the process. At this rate, it might take a week to complete all the 40 updates that were found. UGGH! I may just not go through the download and install process after determining if the updates are absolutely necessary. It does make one wonder if indeed Microsoft is purposefully screwing with the download and updating process. It's quite evident that they want to move as many Windows users as possible to Win 10. I am quite reluctant based on the numerous negative comments about the slimmed down NXT4, which would have to be installed when using Win 10. I'm quite happy with Creator 2011.

  9. The laptop computer finally finished searching for updates and found 40 recommended and 8 optional, some going back to February 2015. Compared these recently found updates to the updates currently installed on the laptop to determine if any are duplicates. None are. My practice is to only install updates that seem necessary, and I've avoided updates related to upgrading to Win 10, but it's surprising how many have been missed. Several are related to Net Framework updates, and 14 are security related. Now I've encountered a problem with installing those updates. After selecting just a few of the updates to install and then clicking on the install button, install just runs and runs without completing any install. Will make another attempt this morning and just let the computer run for awhile.

  10. The strange thing about the inability to search for and download updates on the laptop, is that the desktop computer which also has a Win 7 OS doesn't appear to have the same problem. Some of the

    posters to the Windows Seven forum believe that MS is purposefully not doing anything to correct the problem. They believe that MS wants to force users into Win 10.


    Judging by the date of the first posting to the forum, the problem has been around for a lengthy time. Viewing the updates that have successfully downloaded and installed on my laptop, the problem

    first occurred in June of this year. That's the last month of successful downloads and installs of updates on the laptop. Since then the search for updates did find updates, but apparently failed

    to install after they were downloaded and installation was attempted. Now the laptop gets stuck at the search function and never finds them, even though I know there are updates.


    I have tried several of the suggested cures that appear on the Win 7 forum. None have worked thus far. Even the MS Mr. Fixit didn't solve the problem.

  11. Anyone experiencing a problem with MS updates? For some reason my laptop runs continuously searching for updates and never stops. Cannot download any MS updates. The website Windows Seven forum has a lengthy discussion about this problem with numerous solutions.

  12. Have gotten help in the recent past for Capture Video and the program has worked successfully. However, there appears to be something within my operating system that is at times preventing Capture Video from opening. The cure thus far has been to perform the "repair" procedure. Here's what occurs. Creator 2011 home page is opened. The Video Capture button is clicked and the operating window opens, but without any of the details. That is, it is just the frame that appears where the right half the space that is normally devoted to the just captured videos typically appear, and the left half of the frame where the viewing screen, capture device and Capture/Stop Capture radio button normally appear. The program remains stuck in this position, while the hourglass just sets there. I have left it in this state for extended periods of time waiting for it to open successfully. At times is does eventually open. At other times it doesn't. Doing a repair solves the problem, and is of course a pain in the you know what. There are other times when the program doesn't hang. Once the program opens it operates without any problems. Here's what the Event Viewer indicates:


    AppHang Event: 1002


    Stopped interfacing with Windows, Process ID:930


    Application Path C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio 2011\Media Import\Media Capture.13.exe


    Report ID: bc648002-1604-11e6-8305-00270e0ee901


    Any help would be appreciated.

  13. It isn't worth the time to make an attempt at explaining what is left behind after deleting the segment of the video. The bottom line is that the segment has been successfully removed. Whatever is

    left behind it doesn't affect the appearance of the video at this point and location. I did view that YouTube video. It's okay as far as it goes. Would be better if it was more in-depth.

  14. Got it. What is confusing is what is left behind after splitting and deleting. It appears that one frame of the video segment that was deleted still shows up in Timeline. When the same thing happened after a first attempt at deleting the video segment, I thought that the removal had not occurred. That's when I posted my question on the forum. It may be possible that the splitting and deletion was done correctly, but I didn't think it worked.


    Thanks for the help.

  15. Thanks for your reply about getting 3 segments after performing the second split. I've reviewed instructions about performing the split, but what has been described is not completely clear, at least to me. Taking your description for example, the error message was probably related to my not selecting the video segment to be split. Not sure what or how this is done?


    Let's start with the beginning of the video segment that is to be split/removed from the video preceding the split. Presumably, the next step is to make a split at the end of the segment of video to be

    split from the end of the video. What's left between the splits is the segment of the video to be deleted. How does one proceed from this point to get rid of the segment? How is it deleted?

  16. Created a single video from several Super 8mm movie clips that were transferred to digital using Capture Video. Have not done this procedure previously, but I want to remove/delete a section of the video that is within one of the clips. The section of the video to be removed is a little over 1 minute in length. The video is advanced to the starting point of the section to be removed and then the "Split Selected Item" button is clicked. Next, the end point of the selected scene is chosen and the "Split Selected Item" is clicked again. The following message appears, "The selected item cannot be split at this position, because one or both of the resulting items would be too small". Evidently, the section that is intended to be removed is too small, because the amount of video preceding the starting point, and the amount of video that occurs after the end point could not be considered too small. So is there an alternative method to remove a little more that one minute of video beside doing a capture video and stopping the capture at the starting point of the scene that is not wanted and then starting capture again just after the scene? By the way, I tried the Trim feature, but didn't get the desired results.

  17. There is a driver download shown with an ad for VHS to DVD. It does not stipulate if the driver works with Win 7. The specs for the software indicate that it is compatible with Win 10, 8, 7 and XP.

    Here is the info: USB Driver_KM00EXD0SQA.exe. It appears to be Roxio related so there is no telling how old of an ad this is. Would this work and solve the problem?

  18. The repair wasn't done as you describe in Post #32 because the repair was done before your post #23 in which you ask if a repair was done. My answer was yes. I have now followed your instructions to a

    Tee, but there is no difference in the driver versions as previously shown in my Post #27. What was your purpose in having me do the repair as you describe? Was the driver for the Roxio Capture device supposed to be updated to a newer version?


    As to your comment that the information on my Creator disc "doesn't look identical" to what you posted, that's true because I didn't post a picture of the information. However, I can assure you the

    files between what you show and what are on my Creator install disc are identical. It's just that the dates of the files are one day different.


    Any other suggestions?

  19. Interesting but does not help in how to obtain the driver you indicate. Checked Corel website, but did not find a reference to a driver for USB Capture. Did see other web references to driver downloads but from providers other than Corel. I try to stay away from these sites. So can you point me to where this Corel driver download can be found? Can you confirm this updated driver is the solution? The reason for asking is that I wonder if the Microsoft driver and the Roxio driver are in conflict?

  20. Well, it is a challenge that will require more investment in time finding a solution. What the heck, why not? I did open Device Manager and there are some differences. For example, XP shows "Legacy Video Capture Device Properties, WDM Video For Windows Capture Driver (Win 32)". Win 7 does not. However, for Roxio Capture USB, the drivers are the same. Ver. 5.2009.416.0 with a date of 4/16/2009. Win 7 also shows USB 2861 Device with a Microsoft driver of 6.1.7601.18208, dated 7/12/2013. Presumably, the USB 2861 refers to the Roxio Capture USB device. I wonder if this is the source of the problem? That is, the Roxio driver Ver. 5.2009.416.0 being in conflict with the Microsoft driver 6.1.7601.18208?


    I don't know if this information is helpful or points you in some logical direction, but there it is. To your apparent question about the installation of Creator on each drive, the answer is yes, each drive has Creator 2011 installed. And yes, the proble occurs only on Win 7.
