This may sound silly, but which version should I buy?
I currently have EMC9. At the moment, it's working fine except for one thing ... it's not compatible with IE7 ... That hasn't been a big deal for the last year or so, but now that Microsoft has released IE8, many websites no longer support IE6 and I'm running into troubles there ... now I KNOW I can switch to FireFox and for many things I have, but my husband must use IE at work and he doesn't "convert" well.
So, I can buy Creator 2009 at BestBuy, in a box, today, for $100.00. I can buy Creator 2010 from Roxio for $80 after rebate ... either download today or get in a box in a week.
My experience is that Roxio does everything I want, so I'm not interested in changing programs (to Nero, for ex.) HOWEVER Roxio can be very flaky, especially after Windows Updates. There is no other software on my machine that I have un-installed and re-installed as much as this! I have a list with the settings all saved .... disable Drag to Disk, stop this service, disable that service, turn off RoxWatch ....
Has anyone used 2010 enough to see if it's a finicky as EMC9? Would I be better going with an established program like 2009?
I mainly use Roxio to back up files, burn music CDs (and make labels for them), and edit/produce videos. I really like the ability to save a disk image (.iso) on the hard drive and make a new DVD when I need it (because someone else said they'd like a copy). I don't use Roxio for any photo processes other than adding slides to movies.
I suppose that would be another question ... any projects that I've started are finished at this point, so I don't need that type of compatibility, but I would still like to be able to burn the .iso files I made with EMC9 ... I would like to know that Creator 2010 would be able to do that. Though I suppose I could burn master DVDs and just hang on to those.
Does Roxio 2010 still have the ability to make the iso (or similar) files?
Lots of questions, I hope someone can guide me!
