Question

I have been browsing the forums lookig for issues before we decide to upgrade our Easy Media Creator v7.5 to the latest Roxio Connect NXT. I ran across a post that said NXT would not recognize video projects done in prior versions. I just want to confirm wheter that is true. Will it recognize audio projects or compilations from prior versions?

Hello stbeaver,

 

For video projects, NXT will not load version 7.5 .dmsd files.

Trying to load the .dmsd upset MyDVD and also Videowave.

 

 

For audio projects, 7.5 used Creator Classic, which has been taken away from NXT. Saved 7.5 audio projects are .rcl files, and there is nothing left in NXT to open them.

I'm sorry, but saved projects from earlier versions are not compatible with NXT.

Digital Guru...I just purchased NXT Pro. When I made the purchase, one of the first questions was about compatibility with prior versions.

 

I have Creator 2010...unfortunately, it began to malfunction. It was an issue that had plagued me from the time I first began using it. My solution in the past was to re-install the software. This has worked on 2 previous occurrences...alas, someone had taken my installation disk for Creator 10. When I contacted Roxio for support, I was informed that the only choice I had was to purchase a new software. I did...the NXT Pro....but I was assured that my Creator 10 projects would still work.

 

HELP PLEASE!!!

Whoever assured you that your Easy Media Creator 10 or Creator 2010 ? Projects would be forward compatible, speaketh with a forked tongue!

Since this is the first time that I have updated my software, I have MANY projects using the Creator 2010. ANY suggestions? Basically what you are saying is that I will be forced to "rework" all of these projects? This is going to be a MAJOR problem for me...

C2010 should work fine for you on W-7, Vista, XP. Are you running and registry cleaners? Some antivirus/firewall software runs them and it will break your Roxio Software.

Well, my C2010 just quit working. Would not do anything...but I don't have the disk to re-install. That was the main reason for my desire to have the capability/compatibility to not lose all of these projects. I failed to back up my disk...someone took it and several others from my desk. So, here I am not being able to do ANYTHING with C2010 and I was really counting on being able to use the NXT Pro to save these projects...

You have C2010 regular or Pro?

 

You do have your CD-Key for the software?

 

Look on eBay for a retail copy matching what you had.

I appreciate your help...I may be wrong, but I don't think the problem was with my antivirus or firewall. But it is all academic now. It won't work at all. I am just going to have to bow up and redo all of these open-ended projects. Time consuming, but not the end of the world.

 

One final question though...I must completely uninstall the C2010 before I can download the NXT Pro, correct? Just want to make sure before I do something I can't reverse...

I do have the key...but it didn't help me. Roxio informed me that they don't make or service the product anymore. But the EBAY idea...hadn't even crossed my mind...I believe I will look into that.

 

THANKS!

I would usually find a old copy cheap, make sure it's a retail copy not a OEM free bee give away, came with a PC.

 

After your finished with the old projects you can move up if you like.

 

I would completely uninstall C2010 and then install NXT.
