    Don't Cheap Out

    I bought this software from Best Buy to replace Windows DVD Maker which is no longer available on Windows 8.1. My wife used the latter software to make quick slide shows from her photos and short videos taken on a Nikon camera. This software is junk. It is slow. It ran my laptop with 8GB of RAM out of memory when my wife tried to make a simple slide show, I presume due to too many photos. The only number of photos limit on Windows DVD Maker was the DVD-R capacity. To add salt to my wounds, I tried to import short MOV videos into the slideshow - it would not. I converted them to AVI videos, but it would not import them either. I imagine if I spent the $70 to upgrade to their full product (pushed inside this software), it might have eliminated these problems. However, the box advertises it can "create photo slideshows" and "easily import video". After this ruse, I was not about to give this company any more of my money. I ended up buying CyberLink PowerDirector 13 Ultra. Lesson learned - Do not cheap out and think this software is worth anything.

    Does Not Work with Windows 10 as advertised!

    This software is near complete crap for Windows 10! Forget what the box says about it being ok to use with Windows 10, it’s near complete bullcrap. I say “near complete bullcrap” because, if you have Windows 10 like I do, it works fine if all you’re looking to do is rip a CD/DVD to the software and not transfer it to a DVD/CD. If, however, you’re looking to copy a DVD on to a blank DVD, you’re outta luck. Every time the Roxio software would successfully rip a DVD and prompt me to insert a blank DVD to finish the process, it would not recognize the Blank DVD. I wasted 30 bucks on this crap and can’t return it because it’s been opened (don’t get me started on that BS policy). If you have Windows 10, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY BY PURCHASING THIS! Save it and buy some other DVD copy software.

    I bought this product because Windows 10 does not come with a CD/DVD burner, and I wanted the simplest product available that would just include the burner. I didn't need the movie/picture editors or anything else, since I already have software that I'm comfortable using, so I didn't want one of the more 'all inclusive' software packages. Not only does this product not install properly on Windows 10, the installation process corrupted my user profile and my registry. I had to do a 'restore' to get rid of the program since it would not even properly uninstall; even with the restore, it still left my user profile somewhat corrupted; it also left random files throughout the hard drive. Product support from Roxio/Corel is a joke; they either couldn't or wouldn't help. I'll certainly never buy anything from that company again. Too bad I can't give this a zero star rating, as this software is worthless.

    Please do NOT buy this junk! After I had installed Roxio's-easyCD&DVD burning software on my computer, I proceeded to burn a home movie to a DVD. The program CRASHED! It generated some cryptic error message and locked-up solid! My computer is brand new! I bought it at Best Buy during the Christmas holiday in 2015. I am running Windows 10 so I know that my computer is capable of running Roxio's garbage software with no sweat. I then tried to burn some tunes onto a CD. The program CRASHED!! Again! I spent about a week trying to get the Roxio-easyCD&DVD software to run. It always CRASHES as soon as you try to do anything! Please stay very far away from Roxio products! This piece of software stinks! Pure Garbage!!

    it is all a scam software

    will not work with any of the major file formats, formats that 90% of the photo camera uses, it will either ask you to update to the most expensive software of theirs or your money is just pretty much off the window. Do your self a favor and save your money, do not buy this product. I did because of the few people who left good reviews, big mistake, I should just listen to the ones that left negative reviews as they were all wright, but like the elders always said: some people just likes to learn the hard way and that is exactly what I did. If I could give less then one star I will very much give it minus one star, as it does not deserve not even one star.

    Easy burning software.

    As the title states, its easy burning software. The client software installs easy to your computer. When you want to burn a CD/DVD simply place a blank CD/DVD into the drive and drag and drop your files into the CD/DVD to burn. To copy the CD/DVD simply place the original into the drive then select copy. When prompted place in a blank CD/DVD and continue the process. Its that easy. However the downside is that's all you can do with it. If you want to customize your CD/DVD then go for the more expensive products. For the money you definitely get what you pay for.

    This is the worst software product I've ever installed on a computer. The software is nothing more than a come-on to get you go to their website and upgrade to a useful product. Unless you're 5 years old this product will not do what you need without an upgrade. Every feature is severly limited unless you upgrade. I consider this very DISHONEST and am writing to BESTBUY to complain about carrying this ROXIO product. They should not deal with such vendors. I'll never buy another ROXIO product. BEWARE .

    Program gives errors every time I try to import a video, then freezes the whole program. Best Buy won't accept the return and the company won't refund me. Tried the company's tech support and they take days to return emails and live chat is not helpful. After following their troubleshooting instructions, program still doesn't work. Called customer support and they said email the Best Buy receipt for a refund, then they emailed back to say they won't refund! Opened a BBB ticket today...

    Sharing my Mom's memorial service

    My Daughter made a DVD pictorial/music tribute to my mother for her memorial service this last season. Several relatives had asked for copies. After struggling with several on-line sites promising an effortless experience, the Geeks at BestBuy recommended this product. And I am so glad they did. It is very easy to navigate. I was able to make several copies in just moments instead of hours. It was even priced less than the on-line sites I attempted to use. I love when low price & high quality go hand-in-hand. Easy CD & DVD Burning - Windows does just that. Thank you BestBuy.

    Labeling software not what it used to be

    Posted
    aaschuna

    The burning software itself works great. The labeling software sucks. I owned Roxio Easy CD Creator Version 5 until my computer died. When I needed an upgraded software I found they were using a different labeling software which was much less user friendly and creates a poorer product. Further you have to pay extra to make it download song titles to the jewel box insert. The Roxio software uses Gracenote to download titles but the labeling software uses iTunes and in one case, it didn't recognize the CD title that the burning software had recognized. Very disappointing

    "Broke" disc burner

    Took 3 tries before I could get it to install. When I finally did, it wouldn't burn a disc-kept saying couldn't perform function. When I uninstalled it, my disc burner no longer worked. It had been working fine before I installed this stupid software. I contacted customer support for Corel, who make Roxio-TOTALLY WORTHLESS. The little help they gave never fixed the problem-they are CLUELESS-their big suggestion was to burn to an external drive. WTF!!! Your software screws up my burner, and your big fix is for me to buy a new one?! Total waste of money.

    I was trying to upgrade my version of Roxio Creator 2012 but found this software is EXACTLY the same as my four year old product. Roxio only changed the name and packaging. Still runs slow, is trying to do too many things. Forget it. And while you're about it, don't buy any software at Best Buy. They refused to refund my purchase. They claimed the box was opened and refused to give me my money back. Very bad PR! Now I'm out $32! Forget it, Best Buy!

    I first used this program when it came with my Dell laptop back in 2009. It's so user friendly with it's drag and drop process that I bought it for my Asus laptop. I do have nero for more complicated burns on my Asus desktop, but this is a perfect program for those on the go. It also doesn't require much installation space.

    The Windows 10 upgrade was actually a downgrade. I had to now buy disc burning software, where Windows 7 had it included. I bought this software with the hopes of at least doing what I was already doing; burning files to a disc. This software does not recognize MP4 format. That's half my files. I returned it. The best part about this is I got to see Best Buy's great customer service in action.

    I bought this product to burn my childhood home movies, that were copied from VHS on to DVD, on to other DVDs to give to my mother. The software was easy to install, easy to use, self explanatory, and can be used with a single disc drive. The only problem I had was not being able to copy to the discs I bought because they weren't the same type. So make sure, if you're copying discs, to use the same type of discs as the original.

    I bought this with the intention of using it to copy non copyrighted DVD's and I was not disappointed. It is very easy to use. It is also very fast. As of this writing I have not used any of the other features in the program. I had purchased another brand of program for the same purpose, but after awhile I had to upgrade to continue to use it. This Roxio version is supposed to be a full version not needed to be upgraded to use it after a while.

    We bought this product to put our home videos onto DVD. No where on the box does it say that this program only makes videos WITHOUT sound! What is the point of that? We were even more upset that we can't return the product because it is software and we had to open it to see how bad it is. What a waste of money!! Disappointed that Best Buy even stocks this product and didn't stand behind it.

    This program is poor. I had a previous version of Roxio software. This program can not read play lists created with a previous version. It will not create a playlist that can be saved with a group of songs. It takes longer to create CD's even though I changed from a computer using Win XP to a Win 7 Pro with an Intel i7 processor. I would not buy this program again, and do not recommend it.

    Skeptical about purchasing this product. I wanted NERO and they just happen to out that day. This software was recommended by the salesclerk. The price was reasonable. Installed beautifully with no problems and was extremely easy to use. You can back up & copy, create photo slide shows, create dvds and create custom music Cd mixes...Very Happen with this software.

    Purchased the software, I followed the instructions on the box, It took a long time to download, because I kept getting error messages telling me that the software was not compatible with my Dell 5000 series. I finally figured out what to do to make it work, but the software failed to burn my media. I'm glad this was a cheap purchase, this was a total waste of my money.
