Has anyone used this softwar?. Just purchased a new laptop (120G HD, 2G ram, 2 core duo) which had Roxio 7 basic which I found very unstable. Uninstalled that and have been using Nero 7 essentials which has proved stable and I get DVD's which work on other DVD players. Just wondering whether it is worth upgrading, thinking of HD quality for the future? I basically want to edit video with a bit of text and music and a few transitions. Also wonder if there are any conflicts with IE 7. Have reverted back to 6! Thanks for any advice/thoughts.
Stuartli, Just looked at that link. Looks like a 3hr+ download. Feel I would prefer to have a CD-rom, just in case anything goes wrong with laptop, much easier to re-install as well if nec. Thanks for your comment.
Martd77 Problems I have had with Roxio has always with the burning, sometimes works and sometimes not (admittedly older versions). Do you know if you can edit etc with Roxio 9 and then burn DVD with Nero 7 essentials or would there be a conflict between both? Have found Windows Moviemaker very easy to use but have not done a large project yet. Also have you used Roxio 9 with IE7?
jan w havent used it with ie7 but cant see why there would be a problem,not edited a movie in roxio then burnt it using nero. I use roxio to make films or slideshows of our holiday pics,add some music trax some transitions,save it to the desired format be it divx,wmv,dvd compatible files etc,burn it and watch back our hols. There are some probs with roxio9 but they have a very helpful forum for sorting these things out. I have nero 7 premium on my system also but i only use it to write dvds\cds\mp3 discs just find it easier to use than roxio for that purpose(less menus to navigate) For me its a better package than nero,but it does take while to load up all the products whereas nero is quicker on that score Hope that helps you out
