    Div X Bundled Package Help Please

    Well, thanks for all the posts of assistance, but it's still no clearer...to me..... So with that in mind, I'll use my friend Google and see some white papers. To any person reading this "in the future". I suggest you do the same as it would appear tat different countries have varying laws as to "back ups"

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi Brendon! Thought I would check back in and I found your new post about running a repair. Well even though no gracenote logo, I have run a repair and all those new albums now appear instantly as they should. Thank you very much and thanks to the other forum members who provided helpful hints. I have one further question, but don't know if it is possible here. Can I change the output file NAME. For example, I like my audio files to appear as : Track number - Track Name - Artist - Album.mp3 (or other extension required) The way they now currently rip gives just the track name and number which is not that helpful as it does not fit in with the rest of my collection. Finally, I have a couple of mp3s that I don't know there track artist or name, is there a function in roxio that will help me out with this or does anyone know a SHAZAM type mp3 labeler. I have used Picard before, but as it is user added and updated and mainly from the usa, it can be quite wrong or unlisted. Thanks again folks

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi Brendon, I have just removed the creative siftware, but still no gracenote icon and no result for the offending disc on this software

    Div X Bundled Package Help Please

    Hi gi7omy, I'm finding this dvd ripping thing a bit of a grey area. I'm aware that basically the movie maker "owns" the contents of the disc and what you do when you "purchase" a movie is to basically buy a license for you to have and watch the movie. Thing is, I have seen so many media players on te market that say you can rip your movie collection on to it. How does that work then? are they all breaking the law. As I say, in the uk I've always been aware that you are entitled to make one back up of your "License". I know that you should not "Alter the contents" as it would not be as you purchased it or as the original creator intended it to be, but in order to make the bacj up, some protections need to be removed so as you can do this. Man this is such a headache and all because of those cheap skate gypsys that pirate them for download. Makes it so much harder for us genuine folk!

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi gi7omy, Yes I'm aware what I did the creative is no doubt breaching the license as altering ini's is not "basic" and kind of alters the software as the company intended. But as i say, I want to remove it once I have roxio working. That's half the point of me getting this and nero only allowed me to rip at a max of 192 constant (bit to naff for me) I am finding the DVD ripping a bit of a grey area though as there are so many media players on the market and they all enable you in one way or another to rip your dvds on to them. Does that mean that they are comitting an offence too?

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    i don't wish to turn this into a big deal, in my understanding of the UK copyright law, OWNERS are entitled to make a "backup" of their purchase. If it was so "illegal" why would companies such as apple enable you to "rip" your dvds to their ipods? I am doing the same, except for putting tthem onto my home media streaming netork which is intended for my own personal use. It is also the same as copying VHS movies to dvd or other digital formats. You own the original, you are making a backup onto digital.

    Div X Bundled Package Help Please

    I understand that roxio may not, but I would have thought DIVx would. In my understanding, it is legal to make a digital back up of your music/video purchases as long at is is for backup purposes only and is left in it's original entity (no edits etc), then with that said, you are in no way to distribute this work be it "torrent" or re-selling for financial gain. I mean you can rip cds to ipods and media players, so why not rip dvd to a portable digital format?

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi Brendon, Thanks for this useful hint. I will try uninstalling creative and see what happens. As you correctly point out, there is no gracenote logo happening. I will let you know my findings

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hello, I just wish to point out that you are making very poor assumptions. "a lot of what i am doing is illegal". Every single piece of software and all my computer based products are 100% genuine. All my music and video is 100% purchased from recognised retail outlets. The ONE sinlge alteration I made was to the creative jukebox so as I could use it on a different machine at the time. Agreed, possibly not 100% legal as I have doctored a piece of software, but this is why I say I wish to remove it once I have roxio sorted. If I was releasing this verion via a torrent or selling it for making money, yes, this would be 100% illegal and wrong. Also, I wish to add that I do have an idea how gracenote cddb works. The only reason I have asked about it is that 1, the gracenote logo does not appear when it is searching the db and 2, why the same cds vary in recogniton results. I am thinking that roxio uses freedb as opposed to gracenote as free db is more "user input" orientated than gracenote. Myself and other users, appreciate being spoken to as humans rather than with a snobby arrogent tone. You have "guru" satus, therefore, please use your status correctly and answer, rather than making assumptions. As the saying goes, assume makes and &%$ out of U and ME.

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi there, sorry for the brief description earlier. Basically, I am building a media drive/streamer for my home. All my cds need to be ripped (i am choosing 320 constant). This program looks the business, but the cddb is pretty naff. For example I gave just purchased 12 double albums which are the history of trojan records (2011 releases). If i rip the mp3 with the crative jukebox, gracenote database finds them in a flash, all correct and fine. If i use roxio, it cant find the discs and wants me to tyoe them all in....no thanks :-) I then thought I'd try a different cd, so I tried blackeyed peas's Elephunk. In creative, this comes up instanly, correct and fine. I put it in the roxio version and about 5 different versions came up, all different languages, some with typos. I selected the normal 16 track versio (no bonus material) and the track listing was so incredibly wrong. What can I do about this. One post says it was possibly a clash with creative, but I dont think it is. The roxio version does not seem to use gracenote )as no flashing logo when scanning), When i was a Nero boy, I had both on there)creative and nero) and the both used gracenote, all was well. And just beofre anyone asks why i need both creative jukebox ripper and another ripper, I intend to remove the creative one as it's a version I cracked. Basially I used to have a SB audigy and i wanted to use the ripper on anothor machine that had not a creative bit of hardware. The jke box originally would not install if no other creative hardware is found. My crack resolved this making it "multi region". So in short once I am happy with roxio version, creative will go, but not until then. Is it maybe possible that I can change the cddb in roxio to use gracenote? It's really good :-)

    Div X Bundled Package Help Please

    Hello again, sorry for the brief problem description. Basically I have a new dell ispiron 1545, 4gb ram, dual intel 2.3ghz cpus, running genuine windows 7 pro. What I want to do is rip my DVDs to my HD in AVI or divx format, which will then get loaded onto my media streaming NAS. I have all genuine DVDs. For example, I am trying to rip shrek. First off I have tried playing it in DIVX plus Player (bundled)and I get the following message - " Unsupported Format This video is and unsupported format and cannot be played without downloading additional direct show features" So I then try going to the divx converter, find a vob on the shrek dvd. The drive spins up then I get an "Error 22" message saying it is unable to revognise the file type. Thanks to those that have given help already, I have every windows and software update and this is not the cure unfortunately. Probably user error, but either way, I'd like some further assistance. Thanks again

    Izotope

    Hi, I have had izotope audio tool bundled with my 2012 suite, but why can i not use it with video editting? I though it was a plug in not a stand alone. Many thanks
  13. Hi, I have been bundled Divx converter, divx plus player and divx movies with roxio. Not used it before, but finding it useless. When ever I try to playback a file or rip one using these programs it says that it does not recognise the file type and I would need to down load a directx plugin or something. Any help please

    Mp3 Ripping - No Cddb Results

    Hi All, I have just moved from nero because, well they are shockingly bad and the new software really does stink. Anyways, trying to rip some genuine shop purchased cds, but I do not get any CDDB results. Just track 1, cd track 2, etc,etc. I have a version of creative play centre with gracenote cddb and it finds all my cds i put in, including this. Is there a fix or something i am doing slightly different than everyone else? I have hundreds of cds, I cant be typing them all in Thanks
