Painful installation and despirately slow in use,
This review is from: Roxio Creator NXT (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Software these days should not require command line scripts and regestry edits to function.
Roxio seem to think otherwise.
There's been an ongoing issue with registry keys not installing properly with the last few revisions of most of their software lines. If it throws up an error about critical keys missing then take it back to where you got it from unless you like getting into the guts of your Windows environment. To install it you have to run the setup.exe file under a command line prompt with a bunch of switches and then edit the registry keys manually to get the software running.
After all that and NXT is running it doesnt get any better really. There seem to be quite a few useful tools and functions but many are hampered by DRM issues stopping the function working.
If you're thinking about ripping your DVD collection to stop the kids from trashing the original discs forget it. It can't do that. DRM protection stops the well advertised rip from disc to media file tool from working.
If you try to rip your own discs, it takes 5 to 6 hours to convert a 90 minute DVD to a WMV file at 720p on a reasonable spec PC with GPU processing. Utterly pointless. I uninstalled what little of NXT I had managed to get working and took it back.
I would recommend you buy something else unless NXT does something you really need and are prepaired to fight it every inch of the way.
