I have used Creator 2011 Special Edition for several years to create new DVD slide shows & movies. When I try to open a project that was created with 2009 or earlier version I get the 80004005 error message.

 

The following link is what Roxio says about that error code:

Generally though, Roxio software has not been backwards compatible, with previous versions, when it comes to any video work.

Thanks for your reply. I had seen that note before and thought that it dealt with burning DVDs and not with opening *.dmsd files. I did suspect that newer versions of Creator were not backward compatible but hoped that there was an application to convert the older projects. I certainly will not upgrade to a newer version unless I am sure I will be able to open older project files.

Do not rely on Roxio producing a version that will make older projects files compatible with new version. We have all been complaining about this missing feature for years but Roxio just doesn't listen. I always complete all projects in the version I start. Roxio also has never bothered to create a small utility to "convert" project files for newer versions.
