Label Creator problems

Question

Running W2K Pro SP4

 

Using REMC 8 (Build 805B30B ENU) with following not installed:

Drag-to-Disc

PhotoSuite

VideoWave and MyDVD

Media Import

Digital Home

 

When I try to open label projects I get the following errors:

 

Out of memory

An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end.

 

I found multiple instances of label creator in task manager and ended all of them.

 

Problem seems intermittent but once the problem occurs with a label project it never goes away. Only solution seems to be to remake that project from scratch.

 

I don't particulary like REMC 8, have had a lot of trouble with it. My needs are simple. Simply to create and copy data and MP3 CDs and DVDs.

 

Is anyone using a competing product or application that is not as "feature rich" (i.e., trouble some) as this? No way am I going to upgrade to 9, I started with 5 went to 7, then 8, and it got more trouble some at each step.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Jack

You don't say how much memory you have in your computer but what I would suggest is that you increase the size of the pagefile as this can often lead to the 'out of memory' reports (despite what you may think, if you increase physical RAM, the pagefile has also to INCREASE and not decrease as you might expect).

 

The EOF problem is usually down to the file being truncated (usually by the OS) and could well be related to the memory problem.

 

Let us know your specs (CPU speed, hard drive capacity and free space and memory and pagefile settings) and we'll see how we go from there

Thanks for the reply, here's the specs:

 

MOBO = ABIT IC7-MAX3

CPU = Intel P4 2.66GHz

RAM = 2GB RAM

Hard Drive = Adaptec 29160 + IBM-ESXS ST3146807LW FN (146GB)

SPACE AVAILABLE 81009 MB

PAGING FILE INITIAL 2046 MB MAXIMUM 4092 MB

Try increasing the pagefile to 4 GB min and max (so that it doesn't change size and then defrag the hard drive).

 

Also, run chkdsk to make sure there aren't any lost clusters and also run spybot and/or adaware to make sure there are no running processes in the background that may be eating up resources. Don't confuse spyware with a virus - it's just as nasty but not the same thing

Okay, did all that. Defragged and set paging to 4 GB and 4 GB.

 

Also found a LC8hotfix that was mentioned in some old posts and installed that. I wonder that does not surface when I looked for updates to EMC 8?

 

Went through the label making, saving, and trying to reopen process again and it is nothing short of a horrorshow. Labels can be created and saved but the errors still occur when you try to re open the saved labels.

 

Roxio has a horrible track record in my experience as far as de-bugging and fixing their applications. All they appear to be interested in doing is adding more troublesome bells and whistles and selling upgrades.

 

EMC 8 has been nothing but trouble for me since day one. They have driven me away, I'll never purchase another Roxio product.

 

One of my questions here was what was a good product to replace Roxio with. I don't seem to be getting any answers to that question.
