    NXT6pro--My DVD won't load, crashes

    Something is installed incorrectly. When you installed NT6 Pro, you should have "lost" access to NXT 5. Why did you buy MyDVD when it was already installed as part of NXT 6 (and 5)? Why are there subfolders for "Custom Brands" and "Sonic Text"? Did you buy that version of NXT 5 directly from Roxio or a reputable site or from a Vendor like one on e-Bay? That DIM.exe looks a lot like something from Corel and Roxio being corrupted (Read this) Did you buy both versions? Corel owns Roxio and has rebranded some of Roxio's programs for their use (and vice versa).
  2. I doubt that there have been substantial improvements in that program between 5 and 6. That is not a consensus but could be depending on how many others respond.

    ISO Burn Issue

    I agree with Walt; I made some music DVDs awhile back and had to use a bunch of images to go with it. I used the album covers. I can't remember what program I used. Does your DVD player have the ability to play thumb drives (memory sticks)? That may be an alternative to have a lot more audio to play without changing out the media being played. Correction: Just remembered that the program was "Create DVD Music Discs" in the Music/Audio section of the program. You may have to rip the ISO file back to the individual music tracks and then make the DVD Music disc. Apparently the program adds the proper navigation to the disc. No images necessary.

    My DVD error code 325484656

    Are you using top quality discs? Have you upgraded to the latest version of Windows 10?

    Video Wave Audio "Fuzzy"

    Well it looks like the two computers are nowhere alike. It looks like you have a problem with the skydrive that you may want to fix or disable. Do you have the audio turned up all the way so you get clipping of the audio? Since that is a laptop, make sure that you have the built in microphone muted. Does this happen with other than the TV programs you have recorded? I'm grasping at straws here so you may want to contact Roxio/Corel support to see if they can duplicate the problem and fix it.
  6. How do you plan to play the cd with wav files? Cd players are not designed to play wav files so you would have to use another device. c2d files are audio disc image. You'll need to burn that image file using another program (Burn disc image).

    Video Wave Audio "Fuzzy"

    Thanks, now if we could get the other people who have the problem to add theirs then we could see if there is something in common. BTW, I noticed that your graphics drivers are 3 years old; there may be updates. The same thing for your audio drivers. Audio drivers are not updated as often as graphics but check and update as needed anyway. Do you have the audio turned up all the way so you get clipping of the audio? If that is a laptop, make sure that you have the built in microphone muted. Your i3 is underpowered for video editing (my experience). You may want to set your computer to "performance" rather than "Quality" Look at the end of the dxdiag file. There are several errors - some to do with a photo editing issue, some to do with internet, etc. If you search for the errors, you may find solutions.

    Video Wave Audio "Fuzzy"

    Scott, please post the Windows dxdiag.exe evaluation of your computer. Perhaps the others having the same issue will post theirs also so we can find common hardware that might be involved.

    Video Wave Audio "Fuzzy"

    Perhaps Jim should have indicated that he processed a similar project based on the information you provided. By your responses, you seem to suggest that your files (and computer) are the only ones that cause this problem (not the ones that Jim used). Perhaps it is time to look at your files and audio devices. Remember this is NOT tech support. We are users just like you with maybe a little more experience who try to help.

    You made a movie (WMV). it is no longer a slide show. If you saved the photo slide show while you were making the original creation and edits you can edit that in VideoWave. If you haven't, you can edit the "movie" but it is not easy or quick. You might just be better off starting from scratch.

    SP2 will not install

    What is the last character in the first set of number in the build number (as Frank posted above). Is it "A" or "H"? I think "H" is the latest build but since no one knows what it does, it is probably not important.
  13. sknis

    SP2 will not install

    Have you ever reinstalled the program? The first thing the installer does is to check for updates. Perhaps your was done then without changing the Build Number.. I think the "H" means SP2 was installed from the program; you still have the "A'. I would not worry about it since it does everything it is supposed to.

    SP2 will not install

    Frank, I'm pretty sure that I installed the SP2 update with no virus warning. Looking at the version, mine is the same as yours shown except I have an "H" were you have an "A". Sorry, I can't find the SP2 download file.

    SP2 will not install

    Frank, you may have a problem; you already have SP2 but your screenshot indicates it is not up to date. SP2 is the latest update. I ran Defender and Kapersky and neither saw a problem. The update is from the Corel/Roxio program itself.

    Please remember that this is a public users forum and not tech support. Please do not post ticket numbers (we can't look them up) and never post product keys because others may use the keys to activate pirated software. Just to make sure, were you disconnected from the internet and have your antivirus turned off during the install? Why did install from the disc not work error messages. Did you try copying the disc to your computer and install from there?

    editing an mp4 vidio with creator nxt 6

    NXT 6 should be able to edit mp4 files. Did you try it using Video Wave. Were you able to open Video Wave (edit video- advanced)? Were you able to add the file to the timeline? Where did you get the file? Is it on your computer? Is it high definition? Make sure you have selected that as the format in VideoWave. Explain "edit video BY FRAME" If you want to really do this, spread out the timeline to see the file with more detail.

    Videowave hangs during rendering

    Make sure you have lots of free space on your system drive. Defrag if you do not have a solid state hard drive. What eldse do you have running while you are encoding -- e-mail, antivirus, etc?
  19. Did you move anything on your computer programs since you installed the program. The main (snap) screen is just a series of hyperlinks to the individual programs. If you moved the individual programs or the splash screen, those links are broken. I don't know if a reinstall will fix this.
  20. Just keep reminding yourself that you can get only about 1 hour of best quality video on a disc. More will make the already bad video look poorer. You can use double layer DVD and get a little less than 2 hours. If you have a blu ray burner, you can put more standard video on the disc but you need a blu ray player to play it. If you do not plan to use discs, consider memory stick, they are inexpensive and you can get them in larger sizes. I cannot remember the last time I burned a disc but I have put video on many memory sticks. Also plan ahead, break up your project into sections with menus like by year, by type of activity (scuba, vacations)etc. It seems like you have a major task ahead of you so taking so time to plan may save you time in the end.
  21. Set Windows to 100%; it looks like you have it higher (125% ?).

    JPEG clarity in Roxio NXT Pro6 VideoWave

    Sorry for butting in. I saw this thread and had those questions. I will now butt out. I think I'm missing something here. Remember that the image resolution is greater than any video unless you are going to 4K (or above). You cannot compare the images from a photo viewer to an image taken from a video. It looks like you are making a standard definition (720 by 480) video rather that a wide video - high definition. cd is on the right track. See his question above and your response. Could you be more precise? Also, previews are not the same as a finished video clarity. Create a short video project with some images and output it to an ISO file. Play the ISO file. You may have to create a virtual drive. Does it look better there ?

    Capture Quailty

    DV is digital video AVI which is uncompressed. Use it if you have the hard drive space. It will be easier and faster (generally) to capture and edit. DVDHQ is mpg2 which is compressed. It captures in the format that is used on DVD discs. The HQ is the bit rate of the video; the higher the better. If the tapes are bad or your computer is underpowered (e.g. i3 or i5) then there may be more bad spots to edit out. There may be some out of sync audio because your computer is capturing, encoding and trying to keep up with the audio at the same time. If you don't have a lot of hard drive free space, you may want to buy a USB portable hard drive to 1) move some programs and other resources to that other drive and 2) Have enough free space for the capture. Make sure your system drive is cleaned of old programs and junk files and defragged (if it is not a solid state drive).

    Capture Quailty

    What are you using to convert the analog signal to digital in order to do the capture? Stay with the original resolution of 720 by 480 ( or the equivalent). The quality of the capture is also dependent on the condition of the tape and the player. Search on-line for what you can do to clean the player and the tape. If you are hands on, here is an article that may help on the player. Also if you see a warning on one of your home made tapes, it usually means that that part of the tape is in bad condition and giving the impression that it is a copy protected commercial tape (some are and some are not) Some TVs will upscale the quality but don't expect high definition quality.
