|DVDit pro HD works with Windows 7|
Roxio DVDit Pro HD Disc Authoring Software Review
While all of the documentation notes that the program is designed for Windows XP (Home, Professional or Media Center Edition), we tested DVDit Pro HD on a Sony Vaio RM1 video editing computer running Windows Vista Business, and everything worked just fine.
If it works in Vista, usually it works in Windows 7 too.
I run DVDPro HD on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. It runs more stable than on XP/SP3.
However, I think, it does not support import of AVCHD-files, but I am not sure as I have never done it.
However, I know from much experience with using several versions of Roxio Easy Media Creator that Roxio makes the buggiest software I have ever encountered, and it's un-install program leaves a lot of crap behind in the Registry .
If you want to un-install DVDitPro HD , if you managed to get it to install all the way, go to Control Panel - set it to display as Small icons or Large icons - Programs and Features
and find the entry for DVDitPro HD in the list and click on it to un-install it's software.
There may be other Roxio crap that was installed along with it that you also need to un-install.
There are various reasons Windows 7 may not be allowing your DVD drive to work properly.
First of all, the mboard's bios Setup must be detecting the DVD drive's model.
If it isn't showing up there, you need to fix whatever is causing that problem first. The most common reason for that on a desktop computer is you've been fiddling around with the drive's data or power connection, or the jumper on the back of the drives or you've added or removed a drive if it's an IDE drive, inside the computer case.
If the bios is detecting the drive's model fine....
DVDit Pro is software, not a device. It doesn't have device drivers in that software.
Windows installs generic drivers that are built into it for DVD and CD drives automatically.
If RIGHT clicking on the DVD drive's model in Device Manager, choosing Uninstall, then Restarting Windows doesn't solve your problem with the DVD drive after the desktop screen has fully loaded, you've got some other problem going on.
Never install more than one burning program at the same time in Windows that did not come with Windows. They usually have a resident module - a part of it that runs all the time in the background - and it's well known that if two or more burning programs each have one of those, they're likely to clash with each other and cause you problems, and those problems can include the DVD drive no longer working in Windows, yet the bios recognizes it fine if there's a bootable disk in it while booting the computer and the Boot Order or similar settings in the bios have CD drive or similar before any hard drive. .
If you HAVE installed more than one burning program that did not come with Windows, then un-install all of them but one.
If the DVD drive still won't work in Windows after doing that, or in any case, you may need to delete some UpperFilters and LowerFilters lines from the registry, as described in this article:
Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs
