I bought a DVD-RW drive, mainly to put home movies and TV shows onto disk. Nero StartSmart came with the drive, but won't do DVD video, it's crippled so you have to buy the better version. I bought the Roxio Easy Media Creator - Basic DVD and installed it, but I get a strange problem. When I click on the icon, (link is "C:\Program Files\Roxio\Easy Media Creator 7\BasicDVD HomePage\BasicDVDHomePageApp.exe") the main menu will pop up for about a second, then disappear. I can get a few submenus from the All Programs listing to come up, like the Classic Creator and a few others, but the DVD Builder and the main program won't stay up. Could this be a compatibility problem with the Nero program? Or is it another one of those crippled programs that won't let you play with the full feature of a DVD writer? Perhaps someone can suggest a better program to use for mainly taking my videos that are on the harddrive in mpeg format and making DVDs that will play in a standard DVD player/TV.
