MyDVD Premier 8 - Problems with Vista 64-bit OS


prabhav

Question

Hi,

 

I installed MyDVD Premier version 8 in Vista Ultimate (64-bit OS). Once the installation was over the application asked for a reboot and on reboot it resulted in a System Crash (BSOD -Blue Screen of Death).

:(

 

There are 5 files that show up as unsigned files while install such as pwd_2k.sys, dvd_2k.sys, mmc_2k.sys,cdudf_xp.sys and Pxhelpa64.sys

 

The BSOD was a result of the unsigned driver file PXhelpa64.exe. I deleted that file and when I tried to launch the application it gave and error message as "No drives are enabled in your system. Either connect or enable some devices and try again". :(

 

My DVD in Device Manager showed a disabled Icon and in the Driver details (Right click DVD rom in Device Manager and select Properties->Driver->Driver Details) showed an unsigned driver pwd_2k.sys.

 

I didn't have any problem with the application in Vista Ultiamte 32-bit OS. But I am not able to proceed with the application in 64-bit OS. Pease let me know incase you have any update/patches for this application and if this application is supported by Vista 64- BIT OS.

 

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Prabha. :)

EMC 8 is not supported (not compatible with) in Vista (32 or 64) so it's not surprising that it doesn't work. EMC 9 is the only Vista compatible software offered, and it is only compatible at the moment with the 32 bit version, as are many programs right now. Have heard it will be with 64 bit at some point, but not when/if for sure.

 

I don't expect there will be any updates to make EMC 8 Vista compatible.
