Personally I liked the options available in Version 7 of Roxio software but have deleted it from the system - would be willing to go backward if I could get it to be more stable - would be willing to upgrade to Version 10 if it was more stable ... oh... I mean actually work without me having to pull teeth.

 

Have defragged all three disks, usually store media (wmv files) on largest drive (F). Moving files seems to have no effect on problems.

 

Looking for suggestions - are there any known conflicts with other software (though I run the software with nothing else open I have a lot of programs loaded at start up - not all intentional... just over the years... you know ... rude programs like Quicktime which NEVER go away.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Added March 15th.... This video software has got to be one of the worse and frustrating software packages I've ever experienced. I have, as of this date, reinstalled it clean four times - and it continues to exhibit the same crash time and time again. Anyone who got it to work much not have ANYTHING else on their computer... I think the clean install was on a clean machine. I hate it - and as of this date there has been NO help forthcoming. What a waste of my money time and an investment in frustration and anger. I would be unable to recommend this software for anyone... and unfortunately I do not have the time or money to figure out what to recommend.

If you had purchased it from Roxio you would have been able to return it for a refund if you couldn't make it work.

Brilliant!

 

Thanks so much for your technically excellent and insightful response to my problem. Please stop by anytime you feel the need to post such contributions. They are so appreciated by the community as being germane and relevant to the subject at hand and will help those who face similar trials with this software.

Don't be such a smart-&%$!

 

You had already decided you hated the software and you were slagging it off and venting about it. You were obviously past the point of technical assistance, and just busy condemning the software. You got it on the cheap via eBay, but you were acting as if it had cost you your total inheritance.

 

The advice I gave is something you should seriously consider when investing in software that you might have trouble with, given the multitude of unnamed programs you have on your system. Even more so when your attitude alienates those whom you hope might help you.

 

End of discussion.
