Creator 9 Installation And Media Manager


RCH
 Share

Question

As I recall from EMC 9, Watch Folders adds some code (meta-tag) to your media files and that is how it performs the actions it does. As I recall, this can be an issue when exporting files - I seem to recall changing file names to create new files without the code (meta-tag) attached.

 

2 questions:

 

1) During the installation of Creator 2009, are you given the opportunity to not have Media Manager Watch Folders on automatically or does it automatically default to that setting and automatically add code (meta-tag) to your files once it is loaded? Does it in fact add that code (meta-tag) still?

 

2) If it does require install as the default and Media Manager automatically changes those files, would this work to avoid that? ... Move all my picture and video files to my external drive (and turn the drive off during install) ... load Creator 2009, change setting to "Do not Watch Folders", move files back.

 

If they have addressed this and there are other options please explain. I deleted EMC 9 a couple of months ago (per instructions on this board for clean uninstall) and I'm debating on what to purchase right now.

 

... While I'm on the topic of uninstalls/ installs, is there a post that can tell you what Registry Items need to be Excluded from a Registry clean? And will that in fact prevent the Roxio issue of requiring a clean reinstall after a Registy clean?

 

TIA.

Before getting to your question; Media Manager added a small meta-tag to you files when they were cataloged. When you go to burn the files, you would get the message about the tags. All you had to do was click that it was OK to delete the meta tag. There was no need to rename the files. The tags were small so they took up little space on your computer.

 

That may help you with the new Media Manager.

In EMC 2009 (and 10.1) Media manager does not start watching folders by default on startup. So you can open Media manager, select the folders you want it to watch, then let it build its database. Once done, I reset it to stop watching as I don't add that many music/pic/video files every day. Every so often I let it watch folders (the ones selected) to update its database. (You can also set it to start watching folders on Windows start, if you wish).

 

So it's much better behaved than in EMC 9.

My Creator 2009 did default to watching folders. I had to disable it.
