Any suggestions? Thanks
  • 3. system crashed during video editing
    I have Windows Vista with NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics. After much difficulty I can now use my Dazzle Video Creator with Pinnacle software, so I did, and stored some edited home video on file. Then I imported the file into Windows Movie Maker to use one of its features(titles & end credits). As I was previewing what was to be burned, my computer crashed. The only way I could shut it down for the night was to enter into 'safe mode'. I think i'm still in safe mode now as there are still parts of my screen that haven't returned to normal. Thanks for any help.

    Using the latest version of the DivX codec (6.7) from, WMP11 will display video, but not play audio (and reports "error loading codec" just prior to commencement of playback. Videolan Client (vlc) plays back both audio and video from same file. 32 bit version of Vista Premium, only other codecs loaded are Orban AAC+ and oggcodecs from Using VistaCodec pack mentioned in previous messages results in both sound and video, but severely affects normal playback of other video, so is not installed. Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on what you want to do. Nero and Roxio each make a ton of different 
products. So there's more to consider than company loyalty.

You could start by using neither. Just learn to use what's built into Vista. 
Once you've mastered all the built-in capabilities, you might then have a 
better sense of what else you need, it anything. Then you can choose a 
product from either Nero or Roxio based on those specific needs.

Nah, that would make way too much sense ;-)

Use to run Nero on XP, new computer with Vista and Roxio preloaded.  I know 
this is going to start a war, but which one is better? Do I stay with Roxio 
or downloaded the lastest version of Nero?

Imoore ... there is a lot that comes with Vista ... I have used MovieMaker 
in the past and it is worth checking out, but I just do home movie stuff ... 
nothing professional.

I have used Roxio Easy Media Creator since version 6. Just bought and loaded 
version 9 a few days ago. One of the reasons I bought the Vista-compatible 
version was so I could import .mov files from one of my digital video 
cameras and convert them to a different format. (Unfortunately, MovieMaker 
does not have the .mov file format listed as one of the file types it can 
import. Also, Roxio EMC9 requires that QuickTime be installed but at least I 
won't have to buy QT Pro again.)

I also bought the Nero Suite one time back when I was running XP. It was OK 
... but, for me, it just didn't fit.

I vote for trying the Roxio you already have installed ... and try out the 
Vista stuff ... but good luck with whatever you decide to do ... vanilla

No, I'm not talking about two Roman Emperors - rather, as you all know, I'm 
referring to the two popular disk-burning software suites.  I've seen some 
discussion here of some people getting parts of Nero to install and work 
under Vista but, personally, I can get neither program to install - not under 
RC1, and now not under RC2.  They simply refuse to install.
I saw someone suggest installing it under Admin.  Unfortunately, when my RC1 
and now my RC2 installed I had only me, as Admin, and no separate Admin 
account as I've always had in previous versions of Windows.  So, trying to 
install Roxio and Nero under the Admin account is out, at least for me.
Fortunately, we have another computer in the house still running XP Pro SR2 
and so I can always burn CDs or DVDs on it but I would like to get something 
up and running on Vista.
It's sorta like trying to get Anti-Virus software to work on Vista.  Norton

2.Roxio and Nero Install Problems

Yesterday I left a message, commenting on my problems with installing Roxio 
or Nero in Windows Vista (RC1 and RC2).  I couldn't install from the Admin 
position because it wasn't visible on my system.  But then along came Rick 
"Nutcase" Rogers with the solution to my invisible Admin problem and I was 
halfway there.  I say "halfway" as I still had to get Roxio or Nero to 

So I rebooted as Admin, now that I could find him, and tried Nero.  No luck. 
 It simply would not install, telling me it was not compatible with my 
operating system and that I should look to the Nero web site for a solution.  
Of course, there isn't one - at least not yet.

As a last resort I tried my Roxio Easy Media Creator, which I much prefer 
anyway, and damned if the whole thing didn't install without a hitch.  Not 
only was I surprised but, of course, very pleased to now have CD/DVD-burning 
software on my RC2 system.

Just thought I'd pass along the results.

I want to create a DVD for my son on his 21st birthday. I want to be able to

I have Microsoft Digital Image Pro, Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 & Nero
