Rerunning Video Card tuning Tool?

Question

Query:

 

While running EMC-9 for the first time, my computer got hung while the video card detection/tuning tool was running. Is there anyway to rerun the tuning app manually so that it can detect my video card and save the info properly?

 

TIA,

 

-Frank

Just run Videowave or MyDVD

On the menu TOOLS / OPTIONS

The graphics test is there. If the 'dot' stays on software render after the test, then your video card does not fully support the commands needed for the 3D transitions/effects and they will not be available.

 

The system requirements are stated on the box and online. ANY video card or chipset designed for an earlier DirectX will most likely fail this test. However, you should still be able to use Videowave/MyDVd in the software render mode. With that said, there are still some older cards that don't have updated drivers that can still cause issues.

After running a search this is the closest I found to my problem. When I open MyDVD or Video Wave I get this:

then

I have VIA/S3G onboard video. Windows Update does not report any available driver updates.

I learned a lesson. Never trust what windows update says.

 

I found a driver at driverguide.com, which windows said it's own was better, then I installed it anyway. Voila. Works now.

Never download a driver, for any hardware, from the Microsoft Updates site. Get drivers from the manufacturer of the hardware.

:) Thanks a million for your advice.

I went to driverguide.com ......... downloaded the latest date driver for the VIA/S3G Unichrome Pro IGP card dated 2006. Only 7 megs. This worked great ........ without any problems installing.

 

Can't tell you how grateful I am ........ after 3 months trying to sort it out.

Right click a blank spot on the desktop, click properties, click settings, click the advanced button bottom right. A new window opens click the adapter tab, your display adapter ( type / information ) should be listed.

Open the .zip file you downloaded and run the setup.exe file.

 

Many thanks Larry and all. I'm up and running at last. The forum is much better than Roxanne at Roxio!!!!!

Happy to see you got it sorted out. Good Luck

 

Not so happy now!!

When shutting down the PC it seems only to do a partial close down of Windows XP. I still have disc access lights flashing and the screen keeps flashing no signal.

The only way I can shut down completely is to switch off at the mains power. Also I can't bootup unless I have switched off at the mains power first.

 

Help!!

Don't understand this response. I followed the forum recommendations and the SiS website identified my chipsets and told me which drivers to upgrade. I'm now between a rock and a hard place. If I roll back to the previous driver EMC 9 does'nt work. Guess I uninstall EMC and ask my retailer for a refund. Also publisize on the web that Roxio is crap!!!

I believe cdanteek is giving you information for you to be able to check with the manufacturer of your video card/chip to see about getting a driver from them that may work better for you.

 

The problem is not with the Roxio software you have, the problem is that your video card/chip does not meet the minimum requirements of the software.

All my searches show that the Video card is supplied by SiS to my PC manufacturer. (Medion). Why don't Roxio explain the requirements on their product. Perhaps because this would cut their market to far less.

 

I had no problem using my other software for creating DVD's with the old driver. What's so special with EMC9??

OK DXDIAG shows DirectX Version 9.0c and all tests were successful. I really don't see what an old video card has to do with the PC not shutting down properly!!
