Roxio 8 took forever to load. When loaded, it worked but very slowly. When I clicked out of the software my real problems began. Internet Explorer would not load. The machine, when it did anything, worked very, very slowly. The whole sorry episode took me 5 long hours. In the end, I had to uninstall Roxio 8(which took almost as long as installing. My problems were not over. My machine was still very slow and I could not get on the internet. I had to use go back to eliminate all the problems on my machine associated with this software. This is a birthday present that I have sent back. I will NEVER buy a Roxio program again. Incredible bad piece of softwork.
Excellent buy! It has so many features! Copy direct discs, make dvd's from video fotage on your computer, make a music dvd and store all your cd's on one disc! And much much more! I have had much trouble making dvd's from videos on my computer, however, this software does it at perfect quality!! The only problem is that it takes me 5 hours to burn a 90 minute disc!! Becuase i am copying my VCD's over to DVD, it is taking me an awful long time to copy them all! However, i still think it is a great buy!
