Dell Roxio Videowave 2004 Conversion

Recommended Posts

I conducted environmental psychology dissertation with micro-video and edited recording of hikers with Dell's Roxio VideoWave. It was unusual at the time, being DVD on CD format. Now I've got the CDs -- they are bound with my dissertation -- but obviously must convert into something that can be viewed today. And preferably to format that can be uploaded into Youtube or the like. Any suggestions would be welcome!! When I loaded into my IE9 it said WindowsMedia cannot read, and nothing at all happened.

The ability to burn a DVD onto a CD only existed in ONE version of Roxio which was NEVER offered as a Dell OEM... -_- Likewise, THAT version did not have VideoWave. (it was in EMC 6 12/03 to 4/04)

 

So what you really have is nothing like you described and that is what we need to explore ;)

 

Put the disc into your drive and look at it with Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

 

What is on the disc, Folder Names???

 

If it does not have Folders, what are the file names and more importantly, their extensions?

 

And what Version of Roxio (Help-About) do you have now?

 

Answer these questions and we shoudl be able to get you up and running :)

 

- note that a DVD Movie contains a VIDEO_TS folder.

EMC 7.5 has the option to create a "DVD on CD" so it was not only with the EMC 6 version.

Thanks Walt, I did not realize it lasted that long :lol:

 

I have my skimpy manual for EMC (15 pages) and it was not mentioned in there... Of course it only has one paragraph describing 'DVD Builder' :huh:

Sounds like an interesting project to work on! ;)
