Upgrading to version 8


jimanderikat

Question

I am currently using Roxio v. 6 Platinum. I am contemplating upgrading to v. 8. If I do so are there still special uninstall utilities that must be run to clean up after add/remove programs?

 

I assume that v. 8 has as good or better label creator as v. 6. Can someone confirm this?

 

Thanks, jimt

Regarding Label Creator, you may want to take a look at what has been posted in this link about that application. But bear in mind that this is a board forum where people post their problems rather than their success stories.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for the input. I am really interested in the first part of my question. Any input on the install of v. 8 and the uninstall of v.6? The last time I uninstalled a Roxio product it screwed up my hard drive so badly that I had to reformat and start all over. I don't want to do that again just to upgrade to v.8

If you have the room, I would leave version 6 on your hard drive until you determine whether or not you like version 8. You do not install version 8 in the version 6 folder.

 

The only thing that you can't do is install Drag to Disc, if you have its counterpart installed for version 6.

Thanks. If I decide I like v. 8 and want to uninstall v. 6 do I need to run roxizap after I uninstall it with Add/Remove Programs?

You can't run Roxio Zap. It gets rid of all versions of Roxio on your hard drive. I would never use the Zap. There are a ton of other ways to clean up your system.

 

I won't get into how much I detested Roxio for the serious problems that version 6 caused, but I doubt that you will have problems when you uninstall it, if you like version 8.

Hi Bruce, I was wondering if you would recommend upgrading to v. 8. Jim

 

I use version 7.5 for all of my video work like slide shows and editing of home movies. I use EMC 8 Deluxe for all other things and really like it.

 

Some folks have luck with the encoding in EMC 8, but I never did, so that is why I use 7.5 for video work. The final output is excellent.

I haven't had a successful video work todate with EMC8 after almost a month of fiddling and playing and a lot of posts to the BB. So all my current video work are still in EMC7.5. But I am strubborn and still attempting to do some work in EMC8.
