Unable to copy video file to dvd

Question

I've just installed Roxio Creator 2009. I am unable to copy mpeg video files to dvd. Received an error message - "Video card fails to meet minimum specifics, please upgrade". When trying to use Cineplayer, I received a message saying: "Application cannot be launched due to insufficient video resources". My computer is approximately 5 years old, running Microsoft XP with a Pentium 4 CPU 2.66 GHZ and a SIS 651 graphics card with 32mb of memory. Is my system inadequate and can it be corrected by installing a new graphics card? Any help would be soooooooooo appreciated.

Unfortunately, yes. 32mb is paltry by today's standards and just can't cut it. Video conversion is intensive and you need a computer that is more powerful. Fortunately, even some of the cheaper machines can do most of what the average person needs. But, if you want to do lots of video work, you really need a system that has more processing power and both more robust video card and RAM.

Thanks Beerman for the speedy reply! I guess I already new the answer but was hoping for a miracle. Looks like I have to go shopping. Do you have any recommends as to the best processor, speed, etc. that I should have in a new computer that will handle new applications for a couple of years? Thanks again.

Connie, there are as many opinions on the best systems as there are people. If all you do is to convert mpeg files to DVD, most of what's on the market should work for you. For the most part, the faster the processor, the faster the work gets done. A good quality, dedicated video card helps also and up to 4GB of ram should really help things along.

If you were doing very intensive video work.....lots of cutting, effects, etc. then you'd probably want to spend more but for those using Roxio products, just about any quad core processor should work for you.

Really, anything you buy is going to be light years away from what you are using now. 5 years in the processor world is a lifetime!
