EMC 9 Won't Run In Windows 7

I'm running Easy Media Creator 9.1 on Win 7. New HP desktop.

When I try to use easy audio capture to record sound off of internet I get a error that it cannot

find any source. This seemed to work well with XP. Any help would be appreciated.

I doubt you'll get any help since only Creator 2010 is supported in Windows 7. The fact that some can get earlier versions to work in W7 is probably temporary.

well, this is why I came here right now to double-check..

 

I'm upgrading to a new system with win7 and was wondering if my EMC 9 was going to work... I can't believe this software package is already obsolete, I only bought it just before Roxio 10 was released (a year ago?) as I didn't know about roxio 10 upcoming release at the time and was upset to see a new version so soon...

 

 

 

Is it because it's not 64 bit software ?

 

Can someone here point me to another discussion about this issue?

 

thanks

 

edit: Ok, I just read a few other postings, on emc9 and win7 incomparability.

 

Any Roxio credit program for EMC9 owners/users upgrading to Roxio 10?

EMC 10 was released at least 2 years ago. The there have been 2 versions since then Creator 2009 and the current Creator 2010.

It has nothing to do with it not being 64bit. In fact you are better off not having a 64bit OS, IMHO.

I just read around here a thread named "Name confusion" although I can't find it now..

 

when I first bought this Roxio EMC 9 Suite at Best Buy Roxio 10 was released less than a month after, and I had problems with Roxio rejecting my rebate as a previous user (EMC7?,)..

 

A few months later I came around here and found the title had changed to Roxio 9 and Roxio 10, I though EMC9 and Roxio9 were the same, but found my post sent to the "Legacy" area here after posting on the Roxio 9 section ...

 

I then realized I was sold old software, and it was too late to exchanged it, all this happened because of this "Name Confusion" that Roxio created...

 

So now, I find myself with a three generation old software that I've hardly used yet...and need to replace yet again! not a happy camper here...

 

On the 64 bit issue, if you want to upgrade your system, I don't see any way around it...win7 is the future, I have a 6 year old winXP as you do, (expect MS to stop support soon) but this system (P4) is getting more difficult to use, as everything is now designed in the Net with heavy Video, audio and the CPU eating JAVA.

 

new software I need to use like Adobe PS is more complex, as the files keep getting larger..and more CPU power is needed.

 

Even authoring DVDs with EMC9 was a chore, as my system could not handle the large video files properly.

You are four for four. You have gripes against Best Buy, Roxio, Adobe and your computer ! Perhaps some of them are of your own making .. like getting a great buy at Best Buy because a new version was coming out and the use of the names. Roxio 9, if I remember was an OEM version so your post may have been moved because of that. If you use the full names, perhaps it would help Easy Media Creator 9 (or EMC 9), EMC 10, Creator 2009, Creator 2010 might be less confusing. Also if you would have run the MS W7 upgrade adviser, you may have been notified that the program was not compatible.

 

I do hope that you and yours have a great Holiday Season.

Do I detect a slight sarcastic tone in your post? My apologies if I offended your sensitivities, I was not aware you had standing stock in the afore-mentioned companies.

 

Before you jump into other conclusions, at the time I was not aware of the upcoming Roxio 10, otherwise I would have used my Roxio rebate on that version, even Costco had Roxio 10 retail version at a discount soon after the release..

 

If you don't think the names EM-CREATOR 9 suite and Creator 9 are confusing, then good for you, but take a look at the EMC9 suite retail box design, the first thing you see is "Creator 9" in big bold lettering, at the time I thought I was getting Creator 9 bundled up together with a bunch of other programs (SUITE), not a old version that was already replaced by a different CREATOR 9 product and soon after Creator 10..

 

Right now MS seems to be confused with the naming of Roxio's products too.

 

If you go to their WIN7 compatability Center page, you'll find MS lists a "Roxio Easy Media Creator Version 2009 " as compatible with win7 at both 32/64 bits..

Is this the same version as "Creator 2009" ? (or is it my version of EMC9 Suite?)...the version that right here I read is listed as not compatible with Win7 at all ?

 

(if you dig further on the MS Link then of course you'll see they are referring to the retail box for Roxio Creator 9 (in the next page) ...

confused yet?

 

 

Oh, yes,.... you have a nice holiday season too.

Creator 9 and Easy Media Creator 9 are two names commonly used for the same product. There's very little confusion there.

 

The confusion arises when you get lazy and call Creator 2009, Creator 9.

 

We told Roxio there would be confusion with these names, but there's no reason for you to make it worse.
