How Does It Work With Vista 64 Bit Live File System

Question

I have a home built system, ASUS PK5 motherboard, 8 megs of Corsair Memory 800 mhz properly paired, 500 GB WD Harddrive, Pentium E6750 2.66 GHZ dual core 64 bit Processor, running Vista Ultimate 64 bit with SP1. I am having issues using Easy Meadia Creator 10 on this platform ie: the program won't recognize the DVD's I put in the drives. I believe this is a conflict with the Vista Live File System, which I don't know how to disable. How will this new product work with my Vista or will it? Is there a 64 bit version?

 

Any information would be helpful. :unsure:

If it can't read the DVDs that's more likely down to a firmwqare issue on the drive. Every blank has a short 'track' on it saying what it's burn rate is, make and some othetr info. That is read by the drive and the info passed back to the software.

 

Will the suite work with Vista 64? I doubt if anyone knows that - that particular OS seems to be full of problems with just about everything anyway

From my experience, it works just fine with Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit. I've been using it for about a week now, no problems at all so far.

As you have indicated, it should run fine on Vista 64 bit for most people since it is "Vista Certified". The main problems with 64 bit Vista falls into the following categories:

1) 64-bit drivers not available - solution: make sure drivers are available before going 64 bit route

2) Software compatability, trying to run software two or three generations old - Solution: do not try to run old software, probably will not run on 32 bit Vista either. Most software that runs ok on Vista 32 bit will run ok on 64 bit Vista.

3) People declaring there are "problems" with 64 bit Vista based on what they have "heard" rather than on actual use - Solution: ignore these. Brendon's (a very knowledgeable guru) philosophy is that he does not offer advise on software he does not use, too bad this is not followed by the "I have heard...." group. (Note: I have not tried Creator 2009 yet, watching the forum for more info about consistent problem areas plus EMC 10 does everything I need, but I do use Vista 64 bit with no problems whatsoever - actual useage versus "I have heard....")

 

Keep in mind, based on comments in this forum, some people are having problems with it on XP, this does not mean it will not run on XP. Some people are having problems with it on Vista 32 bit, this does not mean it will not run on Vista 32 bit. Why would a problem with Vista 64 bit be any different? What these problems mean is simply there is some issue or conflict in the users' system that needs resolution, not that it will not run on that particular OS. The majority of the people should not have problems on XP, Vista 32, or Vista 64.

 

Edit: also keep in mind there are very few actual 64 bit applications right now, most software that is identified as being suitable for Vista 64 bit is actually 32 bit software that will run on 64 bit without any known problems (they will install in the 32 bit "Programs files (x86)" folder rather than the 64 bit "Program files" folder)
