Help: Upgraded Nero Showtime Won't Allow Capture Frame

by athmg74 / February 27, 2007 4:59 AM PST


I upgraded (free upgrade) the Nero software on my computer, which is an HP Pavilion 6830 run by Windows XP Home Edition 2002, with a Sony DVD RW DRU-710A Frive.

I put a DVD in the drive and before the upgrade, Nero Showtime would allow me to capture frames from ANY DVD that I put in the drive.

Now, after the upgrade, Nero Showtime will NOT allow me to do it. I have checked to see if "Capture Frame" is enabled--it is--restarted the computer, and everything, and I still can't capture frames.

What is the problem?

Found the Problem

Found the problem--I had the hardware acceleration option on, which disables the "Capture Frame."

I think the difference in vidcap quality is due to whether one grabs it from an external device or from a copied DVD. It isn't life or death for me, though!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
