First Time Configuration

Question

:rolleyes: I keep getting a page that starts out: FIRST TIME CONFIGURATION and has a lot of information about indexing files etc, etc,

 

Has anyone seen thei when using the Media Manager?...........

 

Creator 2009 and all the functions are quite slow. Do I need to do this Indexing thing before everything will straighten out?

Just purchased this program expecting it to be a big help in my saving, organizing, etc. etc. MY Pictures.............

If you use Media Manager, then you can wait until it is done indexing.

 

I have no use for Media Manager, so I disable folder watching, before it starts messing with the files on my computer.

This is for Grandpa Bruce............. :mellow::unsure: ............Just what is going on with the "First time Configuration" and do I really need to do that?................

 

I just basically want this program so I can save all my photos into folders and then burn to CD or DVD.............

 

When you talk about disabling features, how and when do you do that? Are there some guidelines somewhere to let you know what features you need and what features you can do away with?....

 

Do I need Media Manager for what I am trying to do? If I do not need it then how do I accomplish my goal?...

Media Manager just catalogues what you have and it's not essential

 

Two options - run msconfig and deselect any Roxio entries in the startup, reboot and tell the nag screen that you know you did it and go away and don't bother me again, or switch them to manual in control panel, admin tools

Lee unless you have a vision problem, don't try changing the font the way you are doing it. All I get is a line telling me what the changes are and then my normal font for reading.
:unsure: O.K. In other words changing the fonts does nothing? How about the color...

 

Anyway... I am just trying to use the least possible, necessary tools to accomplish what i need. Simply said, all I want to do is save photos to albums or whatever, categorize or sort them and then put them on CDs....

 

 

Is there a simple 1,2,3 explanation somewhere for what I need?.................

Color does not come though either. Save yourself the effort.

 

How organized are you? You can do that manually just using Windows tools.

 

Have you tried Picasa to do what you want? It sounds like that is more targeted to your needs and requires the minimum effort.

 

This is what the Media Manager monitoring service says. Note the several hours and that fact that you must select the folders to be monitored and put the images in the right folders.

I am trying Picasa again. Seems like I tried it before and it was a little costly! Maybe it was something else.. Roxio has many of the features I want, but a lot of extra stuff that I do not need. Also, very slow going from one thing to another........Also locks up the computer from time to time?...........

Picasa is free. I got the Roxio products for video related work _ some of the other stuff such as Media Manager, backups, photo editing, etc I never (or hardly ever) use.
