What To Use With 2009 Usb Capture Device: 2011 Creator Or Se?


Digitizer

Question

You guys in this forum are amazing. I don't have your tech know-how, so can somebody hold my hand (figuratively speaking)? I've been using 2009 Special Edition with its USB Capture Device on a laptop with XP to digitize tapes and then edit them on-screen. My new HP Laptop with Windows 7 (64-bit) won't work with 2009 SE, as you no doubt know. You also know that the Roxio site doesn't sell the Special Edition, but I can get it on eBay or Amazon but with no rebates (anywhere else?). Most importantly, Roxio Support tells me I CANNOT use my existing Capture Device and simply buy the 2011 Creator. Is that true? MUST I find a 2011 SE? And if so, can I look forward to any installation problems the kind of which I'm reading in these forums? I appreciate any responses.

Please tell us more about your new laptop. Did it come with any Roxio programs?

 

I believe that Cosco has Creator 2011 SE a little cheaper than Amazon. I don't usually trust e-bay.

 

Remember that you get a discount for Creator 2011 from the Roxio store - the standard version is $70 plus the USB device at $50. The advantage of buying directly from Roxio is that you have a 30 day no question asked warranty. (Cosco is a better deal but if I remember there are two non-essential applications that are no included.)

 

For installation, normal precautions are required. Just because you laptop is New doesn't mean it is up to date. Do these things.

Hey THANKS for the reply and the preparation guidelines. My new laptop is an HP G7 Pavilion 1070us. It's loaded with Windows 7 (64-bit), 4Gb memory, i3-380 processor (2.53GHz). The only Roxio program it comes with is Roxio Now, which seems to be an HP video store. Looks like Costco has the Creator 2011 Special Edition for like $80, same as a New In Box version on eBay (FYI I got my 2009 SE on eBay USED and had no issues). Amazon's a bit more, just as you said. I'd rather do that than buy two pieces of software (Creator for $70, USB Device for another $50). And I won't miss the non-essential applications as you point out also. I'm gonna try to call the salespeople at Roxio; although they don't have the SE on their site, maybe they can "find" one and give me a rebate and an upgrade price as a current owner. SO WITH ALL THAT IN MIND, IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER COMMENTS TO HELP MAKE THIS A WORRY-FREE EXPERIENCE, I'D APPRECIATE IT--AND THANKS AGAIN!

I just realized this thread is in the AUDIO capture part of the forum but from your first post, it seems like you are asking about video capture and editing. Please clarify and the thread can be moved.

That's not a laptop; it is a lightweight desktop (6 plus pounds)! :o;)

 

I just looked and it is loaded up with all kinds of junk software. Revo Uninstaller (free from Cnet.com) used in the moderate mode will help you get rid of it. If that anti-virus has a built in registry cleaner, make sure that it is turned off or set to not delete and Roxio or Sonic entries.

 

Read the p.m. I sent you.
