Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Trying to import video from Sony Digital 8mm camcorder and get about 2 minutes into the download and it freezes up. I have a brand new top of the line HP 9400 computer that should handle the Roxio Creator 9 software. Had about the same problem with my 4 year old laptop last year and figured it was a memory issue. Obviously it is a software problem, not a computer problem.

    I have Vista on the new computer system. I cannot find a way to migrate or import the video captured via Windows Movie Maker over to Roxio 9 without first burning it to a DVD then importing from the DVD. Any solutions on this one?

    I could not add video either!!!

    I've tried "capture video", and it freezes without fail!

    So frustrating. I'm not an expert by any means, but I seemed to remember being able to import Mini DV video before utilizing firewire and now it seems to not even recognize its even there.

Try using windows movie maker software, it comes with windows xp. you can then import the video into Roxio after it is captured. I have used the Roxio Creator 9 and I hated it, always freezing up. I got the Roxio Creator 10 and it works much better. I think the problem you are having is the Roxio 9. I had problems with it and I have 4 Gig of RAM and a daul core 3.0GHZ processor, also a good computer. You may also want to try rebooting your computer right before you do the capture, sometimes that help me with the Roxio 9.

    Is this because of the video format that you are capturing it in? Movie Maker lets you change the default folder where you save the video files and you can change the type of video file it captures.

    When you open Roxio, select the "MyDVD" to make your DVD. When this is open you can then choose to "Add Video" to your project from the left side menus. Then choose the video file you just captured by going to the folder you just saved it in when using the Windows Movie Maker.

    I do this all the time and have never had any trouble importing the video. If you still have problems let me know, and tell me what format you are saving the video files in Movie Maker and what folder you are saving them in. Also let me know what happens when you try to "Add Video" to a project in Roxio.

Possibly a compatibility problem with software. Check your task manager for for new or unknown processes, and check your startup processes for such issues. Also scan your machine with an anti-virus and malware scanner.

Hope this helps, careful what you download, and always scan before opening.

Able to boot up to windows operating system but it freezes within 5 minutes

first, did this problem suddenly appear?...or was it slowly getting worse? It sounds like an interrupt problem with the video hardware. If this problem suddenly appeared, then boot Safe Mode and then run system restore to date just before problem occurred. If this came gradually, then solution is same as above except finding date will be more difficult and trial and error routine will be necessary.
