After two days of utter, utter frustration with my PC and trying to get various new video capture peripheral cards, software and video cables to work, the latest problem was a DVD that was burned in said PC, will replay in said PC but the DVD won't play in either the mac, the DVD player or a different PC.

As I know that support for the program that burned the DVD will ask me..."can you burn a DVD that works OK everywhere but using a different program?" I decided to buy a program off the web to eliminate this.

RoxioEasyMedia Creator looked to fit the bill. So I bought it.

Download size....965.5Mbytes...yup, nearly 1Gb. I'm speechless. :eek:

Blimey Roger - biggest download I've seen

I guess the program itself is quite small and the additional size comes from various sample videos etc?

or....

the reported download size is incorrect as I sometimes use Roxio RoxioEasyMedia Creator and my CD version is consideralby smaller than this

It could be the manual. You know the predilection that the Americans have for using a thousand words when we'd use ten :wink: :lol: :wink: :wink:

I've asked for my money back. The program is pants.

Not ony that, Roxio installed a copy of Napster on my computer without my permission and so I now wonder excatly what else they have installed. So a reformat and reinstall of the OS is in order I think.

It is highly likely that your problems are down to the type of media you are using. Try a better class of disc such as ritek dye to get good results with your DVD Player
