1.0 out of 5 stars What a disastrous piece of software - buyer beware!, 13 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 Suite (PC) (CD-ROM)
Promises much but fails to deliver in spectacular fashion! I bought this because my Dell PC came with the cut-down version of MyDVD (Version 6) which I thought was ok. My main reason for buying it was that it allowed you to make DVD-Video discs from dvr-ms files created with Windows Media Center. But, after installing, it has been nothing but trouble. For a start it corrupted Windows Media Player (sic), it frequently hangs-up when converting video files and the most annoying thing is that when you do finally manage to get it to create a video DVD four out of five times there are audio/video sync problems! The other major problem is that it is extremely slow. Before you ask, my PC has a 3Ghz dual-core CPU with 2GB of memory which is well within the minimum requirements.

The only thing that seems to be in its favour is the "Disc Copier" feature which allows video file conversion of all the popular formats including dvr-ms and 3gp (for mobile phones etc) and the ability to make a video file from a DVD recorded on a stand-alone recorder. This is handy if you want to make a compilation disc from various sources.

Conclusion; don't waste your money on this junk - get Ulead's Movie Factory instead, which is more flexible and a lot more reliable. Oh yeah, the so-called on-line support is just a joke. If you do (foolishly) buy this software I can tell you that you are very much on your own - they certainly won't help you!
