    Having read other peoples problems with Studio 8, I have been able to set up my computer, just for editing. This has cured most of the troubles, but I have one major problem left. That is when I have finished an edit and go to output to tape, Studio has to close because of an error in DVCODEC.DLL.
    When I first used the program, I had no problems at all. I made several AVI. files, output 2 projects to tape and made 2 VCD's. then when I came to edit another project, problems started. Since then I have removed the software completely and reinstalled, twice.
    Before using Studio, I remove all unwanted start-up programs, stop screen saver, stop energy saver and keep over 200Mb of RAM free.
    There are several posts with similar problems on the Pinnacle forum.
    Any advice would be most welcome.

    I have now put my problem to Pinnacle and their automated reply was to update the software to 8.12.7 which I have done.
    I now get errors on diskio.dll and on closing an error on mfc42.dll.
    Has anyone had the same problem?

    I've been using Studio for a few years now (since version 1 - I'm now on version 9) and whilst I've experienced a few bugs along the way, I've not come across these problems so can only assume there is something with your PC's configuration that's conflicting with Studio.

    I've done a quick search on Google and there are a few articles with people having a problem with diskio.dll when using Studio. You might also like to look at this article about mfc42.dll: http://www.techadvice.com/w98/M/mfc42_dll.htm

    Hope this is of some help.

    Thanks very much for that help.
    SFC is designed for Win 98 and I am using ME. I hope it will work on ME.
    I will try it anyway.
    I will do a search on Google for problems with the other dll's.

    Further to my last post, I now do not have a problem with any of those mentioned.
    I updated the bios on my ASUS board and my Nvidea graphics card, so now I can get as far as creating a video to tape. I will go no further because it cannot find the DV equipment, which is my camera, connected and switched on to standby. This has worked before the ealier problems arose.
    Next I tried making an AVI file first, which was OK. I then tried to make a tape from that, but with the same end result.

    Has anyone any ideas what could be causing this?
    Thanks
