Win 7/easy Media Creator 7

Question

Hi - I just moved from xp to Win 7 & my copy of Roxio isn't compatable. Is there any workaround or other option - all i do with it is burn an occasional CD. After purchasing a new computer I hate to be forced into buying a lot of new software as well. Thanks.

Sorry, the only work around is to buy a compatible version.

 

You have chosen to buy a different Operating System which won't support all the software that XP did, so you are going to need to buy some new software too.

Depending on what you mean by " burn an occasional CD ". Tell us what you want to do, be specific (data/music/video), and we can go from there. Win 7 has some features that will do what you want.

In same situation. Forced to upgrade to Windows 7 machine, and have been using EMC 7 w/XP. Are there any programs (Roxio or other?) that can read all my old .dmsm and .dmsd files? Lots of work put into those already, and would hate to lose ability to continue to work on them. (Besides, on XP w/newer Windows Explorer, DVD functionality was destroyed anyway.) Thanks. Sorry if I'm overlapping someone else's post.

No other program will open Creator's project files. You may be able to open those projects ONCE with a lot missing with a newer version.. Try buying the latest version - Creator NXT directly from Roxio/Corel and if it doesn't work, you can return it within the specified time frame (30 days?).

Thanks very much. Not the news I was hoping for, of course, but very helpful knowing what options might exist. Much appreciated.

 

A shame Roxio/Corel didn't provide for version-to-version file compatibility so their customers wouldn't lose months of work when the inevitable software "upgrade" had to come along.

We always suggest that the person complete or at least encode the files before doing any upgrades (if they ask). :unsure:

I am using Windows 7 and have VMware Player installed. VMware allows you to install any operating syatem, XP or Vista, and run programs that will not run on Windows 7. I use it to allow me to use an old Legal program where I maintain my wills, sale of autos, etc..

It just might work to run your Roxio program.

Well, that's the end of that then. :)

If you have a copy of earlier Roxio, you could try it if you have the install package. Just because I can't find mine doesn't mean one of you couldn't try it. I have 3 different programs running under VMware player and none of them would run under Windows 7.
