Pros It burned VCD playable on all my DVD players
Cons None for me!
Summary I wanted to convert my Aiptek Pencam .avi files to a VCD so I could bore my family and friends with my RC Airplane aerial videos. I tried the Aerial Photography group in RC groups for help and advice for conversion and burn software. None of the trial or freeware recommended worked (probably because I am NOT a video codec expert,this is a HOBBY for gosh sake!) and one day I noticed the Roxio Easy CD & DVD burner box in my local Best Buy. I took a $30 gamble (actually $0.00 gamble,as a friend gave me one of those rubbable lottery cards, and I won $30!), and actually read all these other reviews, and decided to open the box anyway. Within 30 minutes of starting the install, I kid you not, I was headed over to my cheapest DVD player, I popped it in, and it WORKED! That is enough for me. I am running XP pro on a 2.8ghz machine with about a gig of ram, and a low class dual monitor video card, and it worked jsut fine. Yippee! I gave it a 10 because it did exactly what I bought it for, and I did not read any manual or tutorial and I am perfectly happy with it!
"What a mess!!!"on by prov2001
Pros Haven't yet found any; I'm too busy trying to fix the problems caused by this installation.
Cons Destabilized my operating system
Summary How I'm kicking myself. I "always" read CNet reviews before buying anything. Somehow I missed doing that this time.
I installed Roxio Easy CD and DVD Creator 6 and my iTunes software became corrupted. I uninstalled and reinstalled my iTunes and iPod software and lost my CD-DVD drive.
Roxio either doesn't answer the phone OR they supposedly give telephone tech support FOR A FEE!! And their online support page is "temporarily" out of service for maintenance.
The extended warranty company, from which I purchased 3-year coverage, won't help me because these are software issues.
Need I say "I'm disgusted!!"
Pros OK when it works
Cons Can't contact by computer or phone
Summary All I hear is stativ before it hangs up.
I never have gotten this Creator 5 software to work for more than a week or two. Tried to update to the latest version but the connection times out.
Pros it was cheap..now I know why
Cons Tech support and file types it won't burn
Summary This is My second time I tried a roxio product. All I can say is stay away!!!!
Pros The labeling portion works somewhat well, but then avery includes that for free when you buy their labels.
Cons This product is about as unreliable as they come. I was burning some CD's and then finally after having burned 23 CD's I put the 24th one in and it tells me "no supported drives can be found on your system" when I made no changes. However my other CD burn
