I want to capture video from a DVD.
When I run Roxio Media Import from the Home Center or by itself and push the photo or video selection buttons, the program closes as if it never was opened. The only button that works is audio. Any ideas?

I have exactly the same problem. I did find one workaround, see my post 9 in this thread
To eliminate some of the suggestions: not media center alone, as I have a Dell 8300 running Windows XP home SP2 (all updates). I do have Corel Paintshop pro X installed, but no media import app (unless you count WMP10 as it allows ripping of audio CDs). I don't have any external devices such as webcam etc., I only want to import from my DVD drives.
Also, I did try a repair from add/remove before updating from build 801 to 805, but that did not fix it, nor did the update.
and this is what the link says...
PS: After posting this I thought I would try the following: place audio CD in my DVD drive and the movie DVD in my DVD/RW drive. Then I opened media import, clicked on Audio: that offered me a choice of sources and I chose the one with the audio CD. Then I clicked on Video, and now it did not instantly close, but offered the DVD/RW drive as a source and I was able to import and convert a component. Maybe that is a work around.....

So I don't really get it. I tried to do it, so I inserted an mp3 cd to the CD/DVD drive. Then I opened Roxio Meida Import. I clicked on Audio, then on Video and it shut down. So I tried again, I clicked on Audio, then on Photo and it completly froze. It says Not Responding. So I wonder what I am doing wrong. Could somebody explain me this steps a little more.
