mydvd 9 - video capture problem


harvey736

Question

I have a Dell XPS 710, with graphics card Nvidia GeForce 7900 GS, running Vista. I have MyDVD 9 Premier.

 

Ok, now everything has been fine, for the most part, until I recently bought a Panasonic SDR-H18 camcorder. The camcorder comes with software to transfer the content from camcorder to computer. The software is from Pixela and it is called Imagemixer 3.

 

Now since I have installed Imagemixer I cannot use Roxio's Video Capture function. I can open Video Capture but when I choose which source to capture from nothing happens, the program freezes and I have to use End Program to close it. I have uninstalled Imagemixer and then Roxio's Video Capture works fine.

 

So the problem is a conflict between Pixela's Imagemixer 3 and Roxio's Video Capture. Any ideas about how to resolve this conflict?

Pixela caused problems in earlier versions of Roxio software, and I believe that removing it solved the problem. I have no clue whether or not it will work with the Vista OS.

 

I got Pixela with my Sony and did not install it. It isn't needed for anything.

 

 

Thanks for the reply, but...

 

How do you transfer the movie files? When I used Pixela to import the movies they were transferred to .mpg file type, but when I just dragged from the camera drive and dropped in My Video folder the movies are in .MOD file type.

 

And .MOD is not useful when using Roxio.

Change the file extension from .MOD to .mpg, and bring them into VideoWave for editing.

 

Does your video camera use tape, or is it a hard drive? It sounds like it is a hard drive, in which case, no capture is necessary with EMC 9.
