I am using Video Lab 10 and it is easy to get around in for a first time video editor.
I do not recommend to buy this product, get one from someone else in my opinion. I spent 5 afternoons editing a cruise trip and had the system crash at least 10 times, then when I finally finished I tried to burn it and got an error code and have not been able to to burn my cd yet. I tried to e-mail customer service and it would not go through it seems. Therefore I do not recommend Sonic Basic MyDVD. (read more)

I have had this product on my Dell Inspiron 6400 for a while now and I have found it very useful for single movies or other small files but if you try and add more than one movie then my computer crashes. It is a good program considering it came free with my laptop but can cause major problem as it takes a long time to work and even longer to erase a half completed, unformatted disc. (read more)

I have myDVD LE 5, supplied pre-installed on my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. The program has been a dream to use. A few problems occurred with some media (wouldn't play) but these disappeared when I tried an alternative manufacturer.
I burn slideshow projects created from photos and video clips from my Canon PowerShot A510 digital camera, using Windows Movie Maker.
I also create DVD folders on a hard disk with built-in Media Player that connects to my TV. (read more)

Bought a new Compaq computer as a back up computer, as we sell How To DVD's about how to service your own Oil Fired Heating Systems and Oil Burners, and we sell hundreds a month!! The computer came with the Sonic MyDVD burning software. Turns out it works FANTASTICLY well, and we have never ever had any problems or issues. People complaining are most likely those that have computers that are not compatible with the software, or it could be non-compatible Hardware. But I have been using it... (read more)

The Sonic Basic MyDVD is the most unreliable hunk of garbage on the market today. And their web site is equally horrendous. Don't walk away from Sonic - RUN, as fast as you can. (read more)

I aquired this Sonic Basic MyDVD software when I bought my new DELL pc tower. As I am interested in burning video and still onto CD, I did try to use the software. Everything you want to do requires you to "upgrade". In fact the pre- installed software allows you to do virtually nothing. You need to order the "Deluxe" version before you can do anything. This upgrade came from Germany and cost over £40. To install the upgrade takes less than 15 seconds so that shows how far your money has... (read more)

The number of times the Sonic Basic MyDVD crashes is unacceptable. Even being careful to save your work often doesn't help when mysterious DVDErr-19013 renders your project un-openable. Tech support's solution? "You need to re-author your project". I spend several hours over several days working on a project and their expert solution is to just start over. (read more)

The Sonic Basic MyDVD GUI was so well designed that any computer novice can quickly pick up and move on with her project. However when running into problem, the error message is absolutely non-sensical, giving no clue whether the cause is hardware, driver, application, or project itself. Support staff on the web appear lack of experience in using the product (MyDVD) and lack of support experience as well. Most solutions are not solid, but phrased in the context "we think", "we recommend",... (read more)

The Sonic DVD software is given away with most Dell computers.
The first thing I wanted to do is simply put some still photographs on DVD imported from the internet.
In theory it should of been a very simple task but in practice it was not.
After waiting 10 minutes "disc error" appeared and after swapping to other new blank DVDs the same message kept appearing.
Finally when it burned onto the disc the results were poor.
On a moving slideshow there were awful dropouts.
The next thing I did... (read more)
