How is Roxio Creator different from other digital media suites
on the market today?
Digital media suites on the market today
are a collection of separate, media applications bundled together. Rather
than being fully functional products, often some components of these suites
are limited or are “light” applications that look and behave differently. In
contrast, Roxio Creator is a single application with multiple,
full-featured, components that all have a consistent user interface,
behavior and workflow.
A lot of time and money was spent on studying how users interact with the
software and all of this hard work is evident in the development of an
integrated environment so you only need to learn a single workflow and
behavior regardless of the digital media task being accomplished. Plus, to
save you the aggravation of switching between multiple applications you are
normally used to doing, all the tools in Roxio Creator work seamlessly
together. As consumers use an increasingly diverse set of digital media
devices, this has become a more important requirement.

*Note: Roxio Creator does not copy CSS-encrypted DVDs. A
DVD ripper allows your computer to read CSS-encrypted data on a DVD movie
before or during the process of making a backup copy. Due to US laws, most
DVD backup software does not contain a “ripper” component. However, if you
live in a country where your laws allow you to use DVD ripper software,
you can utilize third-party DVD ripper/CSS decrypter software such
HD Decrypter in conjunction with Roxio Creator.
