Can't activte MPEG2 COdec when starting Video/MyDVD

I have been using Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 on my desktop and when I am traveling using it on my laptop. The installation on my laptop works fine. Parts of the desktop program suddenly would not work. When trying to start Video/MyDVD on my desktop I get a dialog box ?The following codec(s) must be activated before using this application ? MPEG2 ? Click Here to Activate? Clicking produces the error message ?No permission ? bad installation?

I have tried to get Roxio?s tech service to help. They have had me uninstall and reinstall the program several times. Had me use Windows Installer Clean Up Utility, had me do msconfig and disable all items in the startup tab and hide Microsoft Services, but they have been unable to help. I finally got them to talk to me on the phone and the technician gave up telling me I could solve all my problems by upgrading to version 10. Baloney.!

Do you have some suggestions?

Hello!

I am affraid to answer this question, because im not that his will fix. and after that you rate me "thanks for trying" that's too bad.

In your case i will suggest you to use different player not the roxio. I can recommend you a free player that have a multi codecs, Please click the link to download the player.

I don't know what Easy Media 10 is but for some reason your Roxio software will not work without it. So I would research Easy Media 10 on the internet. Hopefully it is a free download.

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.

I have just intalled Roxio creator 2009 but much of it will not open. To date I have found advice on Media Cretaot 5, 6, 9 and several other items but not Creator 2009. Can you help please?


are you sure is the full version of the program.. If some or most features are not avaliable (greyed out) you may have a demo version, a shareware version or most likely a system requirement has not been met some some features may not be avaliable to you.

did you check the system requirements before installing the app?

for advise on how to use the app check out roxio's website or their user manual for roxio creator 2009>

Hi fiddlejam, look on your box internal flaps & if not there look on the sleeve the CD came in or case. Sometimes they mark the manual for Roxio Easy Media Creator serial key. If you still can not find it than go to this link & call Roxio.

While your there register your product & creat a user ID & password. That will make updating simpler.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
