Question

Please help. You will see i am totally new to this ! I have justed received my new computer with Roxio 9 installed. but cannot import video on a Panasonic SDR-H250 HDD camera, It is not recognised by the video import. I only get web cam or live cam as the recognised hardware. I also have issues with download of photos' but the video is more important at present.

Reality check!

 

Video is not easy, you are not going to find some 'Click, Burn & Smile' software!

 

EMC 10 is essentially no different that EMC 9 only that you will have a fully functioning Retail version instead of a crippled teaser verson.

I'm starting to find that out. Perhaps Dell should be more explicit of what is actually included.

That is a hard drive/memory card video camera. You do connect it via USB, then go to My Computer, and copy the files from the video camera hard drive, to a folder on your computer. You can then edit those files in VideoWave.

Thanks. I will give that a try but how do I find vdeowave in the software. I have searched and cannot find it in the menu.

If you don't have VideoWave, you have an OEM version that came with a computer or DVD drive. It is stripped down, but you may be able to bring those files into MyDVD.

What is OEM and yes it came with my Dell computer. I have the disk to reinstall if necessary.

It means that is doesn't have all of the programs that the Retail version has, and some of the programs that it does have, will undoubtedly have reduced functions from what the retail programs have.

If you do end up purchasing EMC10 and read through these forums, while also experimenting with the software on your own, you CAN become very proficient at video editing and burning. I had NO CLUE just a year ago as to how to do any of this - I bought the software just to simply transfer some video clips I took on my cannon elf digital camera to a dvd and now I am creating slideshow productions incorporating still photos, video clips, music, transitions, pan/zoom effects, etc. I am amazed at what I have learned with EMC9 and the people on these boards are the ones I can thank for all of that. The gurus and even novices on here are far more knowledgeable than any manual Roxio has created. Good luck and if you EVER need any help, let us know.

Perhaps Windows Movie Maker is all that you need -- you may already have that on your computer.

 

I know that there are XP and Vista versions. You didn't post what operating system you are using. The link I posted is to XP version. Once you make your movie, you can burn it to a DVD using the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version of My DVD and a DVD burner.

thanks again. This ia a real learning exercise for me. So now I have to either upgrade or search for another software. Is easy media 10 a fairly easy sofware to use especially for another grandad who is just starting out. All I need is to be able to download / edit / add music to video of holidays/grandkids etc and then burn to dvd for the rest of the family in other countries to enjoy. Anyadvice from you would be appreciated. Thanks again, at least I won't get anymore frustration from trying to download into what I have at present.
