Will EMC 9 work with Vista Ultimate?


Doctor Who

Question

I've recently installed Windows Vista Ultimate onto a PC, where I did have Easy Media Creator Suite 9 installed. This was a clean install; the only there on the hard drive was the OS. I've been installing other things as I need them, and have now gotten to the point where I want to consider installing EMC 9 again. In looking at the Roxio home page, it looks to me as though Easy Media Creator Suite 9 will work with Vista; but when I look at this forum I see lots of problems.

 

So, the question is, can Easy Media Creator Suite 9 really work with Vista, or not?

Some people have problems (and those are what you see here). Others don't (so you don't see them here)

 

It will work with Vista - you may have problems with Drag to Disc, but the standard recommendation is never to trust any packet writing software, so just uninstall that after installing the program.

 

Problems encountered - Norton One Button Checkup has a very nasty trick of turning a registered copy into a trial one. D2D (as previously mentioned).

 

The is supposed to be a 9.1 patch on the way - when that will arrive no-one here really knows, however, there is a 9.1 version released. Now whether or not that is the version you have (or will purchase) I've no way of knowing

 

When I had it installed on Windows XP, I did have the Drag to Disc (which I assume people mean by "D2D".) However, I really didn't use it so uninstalling it after I install it, works for me. What did you mean by,

... but the standard recommendation is never to trust any packet writing software ...
? I won't, if that is the best practice, but then again as far as EMC 9 goes, I have no idea what is packet writing software and what isn't.

Packet writing is the system used by D2D (Drag to Disc), Sonic DLA, Nero InCD, etc - about as reliable as an igloo in the Sahara desert for long term storage and an extremely good way to LOSE all your data

I installed Vista Ultimate and EMC 9 alone. I did not install D2D. Still had all kinds of problems. It did not make windows unstable, so I left it installed. It however is useless to me. Most all the applications had problems. I have been telling everyone to avoid the purchase unless they can be sure they are getting version 9.1. Most of us have been waiting for a patch that has been due soon. It least SOON has been the term used for several months.

Ran Vista ultimate release 2 for 6 months and have since upgraded to final release version. I have installed EMC 9 on both versions without any major problems. Sonic cineplayer was a bit iffy on the earlier version of vista.

I am interested in purchasing the "released 9.1 version". Is there really no way to ascertain the version before you buy and install it? This seems crazy to me.

Based on the posts here, it appears most who try EMC9 in Vista are not pleased. I've had no problems but don't have D2D installed. It's hard to tell what the really tally is as it's usually only those with problems who will post here. Based on this, I'd wait until the 9.1 if you already have bought EMC or make sure you buy the latest, which is supposedly, 9.1 and fully Vista ready.

Agreed! And yet Vista includes a packet writer in the OS…

 

Looks like MS is pinning high hopes on a packet writer. It was written by Sonic so it is probably DLA based.
