cyberlink power director crashing

by cspitser / March 26, 2013 6:16 AM PDT

I have been using cyberlink power director Ver 8 on a 6 1/2 year old computer with win XP pro. It would usually crash about once per hour of use. I just bought a new computer with a much faster processor, 16 GB ram and windows 7 pro 64 bit. My version of power director would not work well at all on the new computer. Crashing all the time and output files corrupted. Working with their customer service people is a waist of time. I happened to go in to to check prices of the latest power director just in case that upgrading would eliminate my problems. I happened to look at their reviews. Power director got the worst reviews of any software that I have seen recently. And Norton insight reports that the version I have is "unstable".

Have any forum members has similar problems with power director?

How about Adobe Premier Elements? I was using Premier Elements before power director. Ths only reason I switched was that at the time, Adobe had some limitations working with High Def Video. That isn't true now.

Not as much as others. But why?

I think this area is one that MSFT did good and bad. That is, to discuss what I see fail over half the time requires us to talk about CODECs and encoding. But this is where many folk freak out and call it a waist of time.

Most folk could care less about this but let's hear more about this new PC. Homebrew or not?

New computer for video

I got a lenovo t530 with the fastest I7 that I could get. works great. this will do a task in 40 minutes that used to take 6 hours in my old T60.

I trashed my cyberlink Power Director. My new computer is so fast that cyberlink would trash every 10 miinutes. I am now with Adobe Premier Elements 11. Very stable.

In my case re/de/installing of codecs and graphics drivers doesn't help. Instalation of Dual-Core Optimiser for my processor AMD Athlon x64 processor was solved the problem.
