I bought a Canon Vixia HF S10 which came with pixela imagemixer 3 SE ver.5 softwear. I download files from my camera to imagemixer after the download is done i want to add the files to the library from my computer. The library doesn't open. Then the imagemixer does not work. You have to restart the computer to get the program to work. On the bottom of my computer appears a white squire like icon Haali Media Splitter. When I right click on it it gives me a list of services SERVICE 1 VEDIO, V:PID 4113 [UNDETERMINED] AUDIO, A: PID 4352 [UNDETERMINED] SUBTITLES, NO SUBTITLES. What can I do to fix this problem? Thanks for your attention in this matter.

what OS are you running? I've read that Pixela has problems with 64 bit versions of Vista, and Win 7...◄ it is what it is ►

How are DVD discs initialised for writing?
I have bought a Canon Legria HF R18 with the ImageMixer SE 3 attached and installed the ImageMixer on my computer, Windows XP and Windows 7 32 bit are checked.
However, I haven't been able to burn any DVD yet (I use DVD-R 4,7 GB discs).
As far as I can understand, the resulting movie DVD should be expected to be ISO9660 conformant, mastered UDF format to be executable on most standalone DVD players.
This is somewhat intricate because the Microsoft prefer to utilise their own LFS format, which generates a DVD not useable on any other system platform than the Microsoft Windows.
When an unused, new, DVD disc in inserted I am asked from the Windows AutoPlay function about what software should be used to open (and initialise) the DVD, in this case for burning using a potential ImageMixer DVD Burner, but no such selection appears here (the expected menu item is an analogue to the initialisation behavior one can see when using for example the NERO software for DVD burning).
So I tried to select the option "Take no action" to allow the ImageMixer to initialise the DVD for burning. This is not the correct selection because it resulted in a blank, unuseable, DVD in RAW format. Thus, the ImageMixer itself doesn't seem to be capable to initialise the DVD properly for burning.
From the documentation it seems that the DVD burning process with ImageMixer has been tested and completed successfully with DVD-R discs so it should work.
I have carefully searched the documentation available to find out how the DVD should be initialised to be successfully burnt with the ImageMixer and in the proper format desired, the ISO9660 mastered UDF format, widely used as being recognised standard.
But I did not found anything. This information is necessary due to the Microsoft Windows AutoPlay feature, which is used to initialise a DVD disc by asking the end user about what actions he intend do perform with the disc (the AutoPlay feature is also used to select what program should be used to present the disc content to the end user when non-empty).
The ImageMixer obviously expects some builtin software in the Windows to prepare the DVD for burning to get the burning process to work, but which one?
Simply, I haven't been successful in finding out what option offered from the AutoPlay menu I should select to successfully complete the DVD burning process using the ImageMixer.
Of course, I can use the NERO, Roxio or other similar software to burn a movie DVD from the material I have uploaded from the camera, but I expect the ImageMixer to be capable to perform this action.
Is there really any DVD Burner software builtin or bundled with the ImageMixer SE 3? In such cases it should be better documented with the manuals for ImageMixer, alternatively, specify what software should be used from the Microsoft Windows Autoplay menu (builtin in standard Windows installation?) to have the DVD recorder to be properly initialised for the ImageMixer when a blank, unused, DVD is inserted.
Can someone, please, help me in this matter?
To be honest, I have also bought a Canon DW-100 DVD burner for direct attachment to the camera and this works fine for burning movie DVDs from camera. But I would be happy if I could get the ImageMixer to burn DVDs for me, too.
Please, do not hesitate to respond to this notice if you feel that you have something to contribute with!
Many thanks in advance and kind regards,
