Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just bought Roxio Decoder for Windows Vista. It's the download version for my laptop, so I canwatch movies I download...Now my computer is fast, and I did everything right. I put in the serial #, and it accepted it. It downloaded it, then it told me to restart my computer, for it to take affect. I did, and I don't see The Roxio Decoder in my compuder, anywhere. But, I went to download it again, and it says it's already in the computer, and to go to "add/remove programs", in control panel. I looked for it there, it's not listed! I can't find it anywhere. I'm kinda mad, cuz I want to watch some Disney movies with my 4 yearold, and she is sleeping, now. After waiting for 2 hours. There s no phone 3 to comtact Roxio???

I bought this optiplex 170L pc used and all the dvd decoders are missing! What do I need to do? When I try to play in wmp it says missing dell compatable decoder! roybertramo@live.com


Dell Optiplex 170L
you have to install a suite like Nero or Roxio plus if you want to play movies you have to get a codec pack and you can find one that I believe is pretty good

or go to download.com and type K-lite there is a standard and full versions try one of those

My windows media player wont play movies


Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

I bought a new Lenovo pc with Window Vista.


If its windows media player that isn't playing the dvd's then you'll need to go here and get the latest version of windows media player and also get the latest codecs.

If you have a different dvd player that came with your laptop, then use the other dvd software and see if you can play your dvd that way.

Roxio easy cd & dvd creator will not install on windows vista


That's very true of a lot of software. You need to buy a later version that is Vista compatible. If you purchased your program from Roxio, they might offer some kind of upgrade price. There are also several free open-source CD/DVD burner programs available for download that you could look into. A Google search will help you locate some possibilities.

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...


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.

This version of windows does not support this version of Roxio DLA. .this product which was created by Roxio Inc. has been blocked from running because it might keep my computer from starting in the...


Check the system requirements on the side of the software box and see if it will run and what version it will run on. My guess is that the roxio software is older and will not work on your version of the OS.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
