Docking Media Manager

Question

Okay guys. What's the secret to docking Media Mgr. Just purchased a new monitor and installed a new video graphics card. Installed the drivers and software. Have set the monitor display at 1280x768 and at 1360x768. Neither worked. Each time I got the popup window telling me that it can't be docked at the current resolution. Was able to accomplish the task with a monitor I borrowed from my son. Can't recall what setting I used and I no longer have the monitor, and he doesn't use the monitor. I know Creator 2011 specs and others on this forum indicate a resolution of 1024x768.

Make the lowest setting something above 768 and it should work.

Not sure what you mean by lowest setting. I get the following settings: 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x648, 1280x720, 1280x768,1360x768 and 1366x768. Is there another method to adjust resolution other than using Control Panel, Display?

 

If those are all the setting possible for your monitor you won't be able to Doc MM!

 

No.

I was afraid that the 1024 setting was the lower of the two settings. I guess that the Roxio specs don't take into account docking Media Manager since they show it as 1024x768. Unless the 1024 is meant to be the lower setting, which describing it in this manner would appear to be counter-intuitive.

 

In any event, thanks for your clarification. Not being able to dock Media Manager isn't a great loss. However, if I had known the monitor had to have this resolution capability, I probably would have purchased one that does.

I can dock using 1440x900 (4:3) or 1600x900 (16:9). So that second numbers needs to be higher than 768.

 

You are correct ggrussell. I was able to Dock at 1280 x 800.

 

I edited the posts above, thanks ggrussell..

 

 

 

You have something else going on, I can dock and undock all day long at 1280 X 720...

 

 

 

Did you actually apply the resolution setting.

Thanks for the additional information. Unfortunately, the monitor I have only has the capability of going to 768. Looking at another monitor with more resolution capability. I sure wish Roxio would provide more than minimum standards for operating their software. I can understand why they just provide the minimum, but for those wishing to tap the full capability of the software, they ought to at least publish the optimum requirements. One consequence of just publishing minimum requirements just happened to me. I just bought a new monitor believing that it was more than adequate. Now I have to investigate if it can be returned for credit.

The monitor is slightly larger than the previous one by 1". Can't go larger because of space limitations. Has to fit in the space available. The store didn't have a 20" Samsung with the resolution needed (lower end only reached 768). They did have a 15" monitor that would work, but brightness and contrast was mediocre. Had to go with an Acer which is also a LED monitor rather than LCD. Resolution is 1600 x 900. I was able to trade in the Samsung for the Acer straight up, no additional cost. The contrast and resolution is unbelievable. The digital images are really sharp with unbelievable depth. Most were shot using a wide angle lens (SP, Di II, 10 to 24mm) at 10.2 megapixels. These are images of a trip to Italy last year. Planning on another one this year. Getting Media manager to dock is also great. Never did that with Creator 2009 and my former monitor and computer. The wide screen also puts more panels on the screen when in Storyline. Sure makes it easier and faster dragging and dropping images. The wife is also quite happy. Says that maybe I will be less grumpy now that almost everything is sorted out. Still have to determine why my one Epson computer screws up Video Copy & Convert.

I am glad that you got the monitor situation squared away. Docking Media Selector, and all of the others that can be docked, is a time saver.

 

Oh, and you know full well, that the wife will still let you know when you are the least little bit grumpy. :) :)

Yah, it must be Roxio's fault for not realizing that someone with a 20" monitor would not be able to live with un-docked portions or smart enough to figure out how to fit all of that in a mere 20" of space...

 

For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would even bring home anything less than 1280 X 1024!!! I've got 2, 17" from 2003 that can do better than that! My 21's do even higher...

 

But let's blame our lack of forsight and common sense on Roxio ;)
