Easy LP to MP3 errors

Question

Hi,

I have a Dell 4700 (Pentium 4, 2gb ram, windows XP) and I just installed Easy LP to MP3. The main screen of the program starts, but when I try to open the Convert LPs/Tape, Tag Editor, or Sound Editor I get the "has encountered a problem and needs to close" message. The program does recognize my DVD/Cdr drive in the other sub-sections, and they do run.

 

Any Ideas? I put a request into Roxio support, but so far nothing but roaring silence.

Hi Rob.

 

We don't get a lot of questions on this product and to be honest, I have never seen it.

 

I believe it is based on components of Creator 2009 EMC 10 but in any case when one encounters the error you describe, it is going to involve a Clean Install. XP

 

Print out the directions an of course when you reach the Install part, follow the specific directions that came with your product.

 

Do me a favor, from the Home app, click on Help - About and list the full Version and Build, like this: post-39730-1262897895.jpg

Hi Jim,

 

I haven't completely pulled it out and re-installed it. I found the "repair" option in the Remove Software section of Control Panel. I let it run, but there is no improvement.

 

Here's the info:

 

Roxio Easy LP to MP3

Version: 10.3.104

Build: 101B04E, ELT

Serial Number:

I just took a look at the Clean Install instructions - so I can't have my Easy CD Creator 6 on the same computer as Easy LP to MP3? I'd like to keep it around, but I bought Easy LP to MP3 to get back the old Spin Doctor features like the noise reduction and EQ.

 

I don't think I would do the clean install on my own, because even though I've been playing around with PCs for 20 years, I don't like to touch the Windows Registry.

Interesting, then the LP to MP3 is actually based on an updated version of EMC 10… The 10.3 version is Win7 compatible.

 

Repair is not going to do it, you are going to have to do the Clean Install if you want it to work.

 

Sometimes it is good to have a friend over, who is pretty good, and doing it with 2 heads will usually get it done.

So, do I have to remove Easy CD Creator 6, and leave it off? I have .rcl projects in there I don't want to lose.

If you have EMC 6, it raises a question as to whether your PC even meets minimum specs for LP to PM3???

 

Please list your specs, like I have in my signature.

 

IF[/i] the Clean Install wipes, EMC 6, just reinstall it… There would be no conflict between a V6 and a V10.3 program but the Clean Install would probably get EMC 6 in the process.

 

Still you have a $99 program that isn't going to work until you do this, and you are throwing all sorts of excuses up...

I guess I could add that it is a 3 Ghz, with a Radeon X300 video card. I just haven't seen the need to upgrade the Easy CD 6, seeing as most roxio products just cater more to video. Easy LP to Mp3 is the first product they have come up with that does more of what I want since they stripped Spin Doctor out of the product line. It should run on my system, and I shouldn't have to edit my registry just to install an "easy" program. Sorry if I seem a little ticked off at this situation.

Not everybody is comfortable, or skilled enough to handle the process you describe - to be honest if I have to do that I'll just take the $55 loss, and scrap the program. I feel that If I start downloading utilities, and editing my registry I will get into more trouble than it's worth. I like tinkering with guitars, bikes, and cameras, messing with the inner workings of a computer lost it's allure when Windows was born.

I agree it appears as a daunting task. I know Roxio is trying to automate this but plan on that being a long, long way down the road…

 

I personally have it printed out and go through it line by line.

 

As I suggested, it is good to have someone working with you. Sometimes just speaking out loud helps.

 

I am curious. Have you tried V6 with the capture device??? I have the V2D and for giggles found it works with the Roxio Video Capture USB device:
