Premiere Pro CS4 eats my C: drive in Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP1

I installed Premiere Pro CS4 this last weekend 11-12 April 2009.
I have a Quadcore 3.0GHz with 8Gb of RAM, a 150Gb C: drive fo rthe op sys Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP1 and programs, a 500Go D: drive for general data and a K: drive 2Tb RAID0 volume useable about 1.8Gb.
My C: drive was healthy after installation of Premiere Pro with tens of gigabytes free at least. Then I started experimenting with building projects. I put my files on a mix of the D: and K: drives especially the AVCHD video assets on the K:.
While importing these AVCHD assets I eventually got a message from Vista that the C: drive was full and I did a clean up and that gave approximetely 30Gb free, I went back to importing, in a couple of hours the 30Gb was gone, this can only be Premiere Pro CS4 eating the C: drive and never returning what it takes. This of course is a disaster precisely because it is my op sys drive and Vista will periodically want to make new restore points especially before applying downloaded updates from Microsoft. I ahve run also chkdsk and defragmenter with no effect. I think Premiere Pro is using some sort of secret work files on the C: drive somewhere and that they just accumulate, of course this would be a bug.
Support Center does not appear to let me open web support issues even though we are in the 90-day bug fix period and I have registered the product with the product key so that is another bug that gets in the way of fixing the first.
Any ideas please?
Thanks!
Peter.

Yeah, I did not take backups that often cos I did not intend putting the machine onto the net, then I got this device that said it would protect against everything by isolating my machine and making it invisible, I await the analysis by the company but it does appear not to have worked, the only thing that works is very real physical isolation and do not use the internet at all from the main machine. Like I say it simply is not confirmed yet but neither is it denied. You cannot actually go so far as to blame Adobe because stopping hackers is the job of the op sys vendor really so I blame Microsoft, the only blame for Adobe is the policy that some functions require internet connection in order to work when they know internet is not secure, so for instance if you want to use the emulators for things like these mobile phones they want you to be connected, I tried that one phone emulator and it said so, I wish they just put all documentation and all software on the DVD. I can roll back to an earlier Vista version from a USB backup disk that is always powered off, then rebuild as necessary, but I want the security firm to see if it is a trojan in fact first and to see if it can upgrade the security device and provide a roll out of the trojan's work. Right now I am still scripting the documentary and this second quarter is getting this Premiere Pro up ready for third quarter production so I can be philosophical for now, but yes later I will get more disciplined. But at least now I (almost) know the security device is not the all singing wonder they said it was. Oh well. I use a second machine too, a PS3 with Linux, that is what I am using now, this one doesn't seem to get hacked even though it is my sacrificial machine.

Adobe deserves criticism for its shoddy QC, but not for maing you exposing your main machine at risk on the internet. I never do that, and I never have had a virus or malware on it--never in all the years I've been doing this. I have picked up a few on my internet machine, though, but they are easily fixed with the security scheme I use.
As for restore points possibly eating up disk space, which you alluded to earlieranother never for me. Restore points are a half assed measure at best. My security system is a full clone backup of my C drive starting the day I install and OS on it, and every time I add add a program, and every day when I am working a big complex project. Otherwise, once a week. It takes a few minutes only. That way I can restore everything in equally few minutes should anything bad happen, like poorly designed software affecting other software, a virus, malware, etc, and including drive failurewhich has happened twice over the years.
Don't get me wrong, a virus checker is very useful to a point, but real security design has to start long before you install one, especially if your machine is the heart of your business, as it is for me. What is that old saying? An ounce of prevention is worth..........

  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 crashes on load with project

    When I try to load my CS4 projects the application crashes with the error:
    "Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project."
    I have my hard drive partitioned: C drive for my OS; D drive for my data; and I also have an external hard drive which is H. I installed Adobe Premiere on my D drive and saved all the my project files and data on my external drive H. A couple weeks ago I got a virus and I wiped out my C drive. So, I reinstalled Windows XP. After reinstalling XP and getting my machine back up and running I removed Premiere Pro CS4 from my D drive and installed it on my C:drive. I connected my external drive to my computer and Windows assigned the drive letter F to my external. I launched my project file and it said it could not find my data and it crashed with the above message. I opened my project file in a text editor and I saw that file path was H:\... for all my data so I reassigned the drive back to H hoping that was the reason for the crash. Much to my chagrin it was not as I try opening the project file now and it finds all the files but it still crashes. I'm all out of ideas at this point. Is there a log file that I can look at to try to troubleshoot this any further? Has anyone seen this happen before? Should I reinstall Adobe Premiere Pro? I am under a time crunch here as I need to open this project and make some edits.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks.

    Jeff,
    The Page File is MS Windows' "virtual memory." It gets activity, when physical RAM is not available. Especially with video editing, this happens a lot. It can be set via Control>Panel>System. Windows can either dynamically create and size the file, as is necessary, or it can be set to provide the necessary size statically - always the same, and is *usually* set to ~ 2.5x the physical RAM.
    With one physical HDD, that is partitioned, you have about 4-5 operations going on at the same time, and your I/O system is basically telling the heads of your HDD to be in different places/platters at this same time. Unfortunately, this is impossible, and one gets system hangs, sluggish performance, crashes or worse.
    There are several good threads on suggested HDD setups for NLE work on this forum. I'd step back a level, so you get all Premiere forums, and search for some of these articles. There are a lot of worthwhile suggestions for number, type, connection and configuration of HDD's.
    Good luck,

  • H.264 playback stutter in Premiere Pro CS4

    Details:
    Adobe Premiere Pro CS4
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
    3GB RAM
    32 bit Windows Vista SP2
    I'm having problems with the playback of H.264 video files in Premiere Pro CS4. The files are 1280x720 60FPS clips, ranging in size from 8MB to 40MB, and they were shot with a Kodak Zi8 handheld HD camera.
    The clips play fine with the following players on my computer -- VLC, Windows Media Player, and Media Player Classic. However, when importing the clips into Premiere and viewing them either in the preview pane or the timeline, the video is stuttering heavily. This is impeding my editing work as the only way to smoothly view the clips in Premiere is to drop them in the timeline and render the project, but I obviously can't work like this because I cannot render the entire project every time I drop in a new clip, or add an effect, or rearrange a clip, etc.
    I'm at a loss as to a solution here, any help would be appreciated.

    O.K
    Here is what I did.
    I just dumped your clip into a timeline I was working on at that particular time - which just happened to be a P2 720p seq.. You dont need DVCPRO CODECS. Use what the demo says. HDV
    I only did this to see exactly how compliant your clip was.   It turned out to be compliant and editable in an un matched timeline ( Good start).
    I throw all sorts of extra stuff at this timeline ( its my base setting for what I shoot and export from)  but  I usually have to render the extra stuff  so as I can play them  back smoothly.  Thats the way it works. One day ( god forbid) there maybe a preset for a camera like you are using.
    I have been doing it for years and rendering is a fact of life.  I am dealing with Professional footage including Prores and H264 from D5's etc as well as
    my own HD footage and footage from 35mm film cameras.
    Your clips are kind of hybrid so you need to expect this.  Forget about the demo.  Deal with what you have ,convert them or use a different camera.

  • Premiere Pro CS4 is rapidly eating up my hard drive!

    Hey all,
    So I was working on a video with my trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. I originally had 28 GB left on my internal hard drive. After importing a bunch of videos and splicing them together, I noticed that Premiere kept conforming certain videos again and again. I didn't think much of it, because my source files (where I'm saving the .prproj and video files) are on an external terabyte hard drive. When I'm done with my project, I go over to my computer and see that my internal hard drive has suddenly been reduced to 3.1 GB! I have no idea where the other 25 GB has gone.
    What exactly does Premiere do when it says it's conforming video?

    I'm sure that you already know that you set up your disk locations in project tab. But a lot of people don't realize that in Edit=Preferences Media... you can tell premiere where you want media cache files to go. If all you have is your c drive and 1 external drive, I highly recommend at least one additional drive. Don't use your c drive for anything other than your os and programs..

  • Premiere Pro CS4 disables aero on launch inWin 7 64Bit

    Hi all,
    I have an odd problem, I've just received my copy of Win 7 Signature edition and I have installed Adobe Preimiere Pro CS4, but when I launch the application it disables my Aero theme!
    I've been running win7RC1 (buld 7100) for the last few months and never had the problm with Premiere Pro CS4 in that.
    For some reason, now running premiere pro cs4 is causing the Windows 7 Desktop Window Manager to stop running.
    I know this because I can run premiere, it then disables aero, then i run the aero troubleshooting (with premiere still running) and it will re-enable aero (by restarting the desktop window manager) and then tell me the desktop windows manager is disabled.
    Does anyone know why Premiere Pro CS4 is disabling the Desktop Window Manager when it first runs and how I can stop it from turning off Aero?
    I don't want aero turned off and have to manually turn it back on with the troubleshooter!
    I also have version 4.0.1 of CS4 so I've done the Adobe updates. I also have the latest NVidia drivers for my 8800GT (downloaded 2 days ago)

    Sometimes the latest drivers aren't the best ones. Just recently I had to rollback a new version of the drivers for my GTX260. The NEXT version that EVGA put out worked well. I really suspect a driver issue there.
    BTW, how much RAM are you running? I was STUNNED the other day to see that my GTX260 which is an 896MB video card was using 4GB of shared system memory. I have 12GB and I'm OK usualy, but wow-WEE that's a big hit. So see what your card is doing... it may be eating a lot os sys mem with the new drivers, therefore causing 7 to think you are running on an under-powered PC.
    Remember, it's alway better to go to your Card manufacturer for drivers, such as EVGA, PNY, etc, as opposed to going to Nvidia.com.

  • Premiere Pro CS4 does not import EX1 files longer than 1 hour

    I had to record a long speech and used a Sony XDCAM HD EX1 camera with a 32 Gb and a 16 Gb SXS cards. The speaker paused after 1h 26 min. I stopped the recording and waited until the green light that allows recording the segment came on. Later I recored smaller segments.
    I copied all the recorded files to the PC hard disk ( Intel Quad Core 2.4 Ghz with 3.25 GB RAM with XP Proofessional SP3).
    I used Sony Clip browser to watch the clips and all of them were perfect. Then I opened premiere Pro CS4 4.21 and I wanted to import this 27 GB file. In the media browser appeared only one mp4 file. All the short ones where imported normally but the big one freezed premiere and the only way to close premiere was with the windows task manager.
    I checked again in the Sony XDCAM clip browser version 2.6 and you can see it perfectly. There was a detail, though: in the lower part of the preview window I saw 6 marks. When I checked the file in the disk, I found that the 27 Gb file was separated in 7 parts. Each of them was 3.51 Gb and the last one 2.5 Gb. That means that the file was cut in pieces that were less than 4Gb supposed max file lenght.
    I tried many ways to import and no result. The I used the "export " of the sony clip browser. There is one choice that is "MXF for XDCAM HD". When I chose this item another panel appeared and showed a 1440 X 180 59.94i 25Mbps choice. I took it and after some time it created the 27 Gb file that I could import it normally with 4 audio tracks. But there is a drawback a "media concept" logo appeared to remeber to "buy" the program.
    Anyhow, the question is: How can I import to Premiere CS4 a MP4 file created by a Sony EX1 HD camera whose lenght is more that 1 hour long ?
    Thanks
    Wolfgang

    I think  is the contrary because the clip browser copies all the foleders needed. I got this opinion from another forum that copies into Final Cut:
    "My workflow is to create a hard drive folder for the project, then use Clip Browser to import the clips from the card. I review the clips, labelling them, adding logging notes, setting the status and putting in essence marks as needed (the number of characters available for the essence mark description is fairly limited). I then open FCP, create and save a new project then call up XDCAM Transfer. I select the project folder and it will pull in all the clips. I then filter for OK status, occasionally create subclips then import. The clips come over to the bin, with their names and with the essence marks converted to markers. Obviously there are backups taken - I've not mentioned them."

  • Premiere Pro CS4 crashing in startup

    I have Premiere Pro CS4 on a Dell Precision m6400.  When I start up and try to start new project when not on network, it crashes.  Even though I go in and change all file information to C: drive.  The only message I am receiving is "Sorry a serious error has occurred that requires ...to shut down.  We will attempt to save your current project."  If there is a crash report I don't know where to find it.  PrePro works on network.  I just need to know what to fix so that I can work from home.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is your My Documents folder mapped to a network drive?
    As Craig mentions, running PrPro on a network can be problematic. Much will depend on exactly the configuration of the network.

  • Adobe Media Encoder for Premiere Pro CS4 stops working on the same frame every time...

    I currently have Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and have never had these issues exporting before. My timeline is less than 3 minutes long, but it does deal with multiple big files. It rendered perfectly and it plays perfectly in the timeline. When I try to export it using Media Encoder, however, it freezes at the same frame every time (which is actually only a few seconds in!) and then crashes, so that I have to force quit. I have tried exporting it as many different codecs and the problem persists... same frame. I tried creating a new project entirely and whipping together a few titles and exporting that to see if it just won't export anything at all. The new project exported just fine, however, which I suppose is good news. But yeah, my work on that other project is very important to me and I reallllly want to export it. Please help!

    Hi Jim! Thank you for your reply. I think you are right -- and that it lies in the audio somehow!
    It turns out that if I choose to only export the video, and uncheck audio, it will export very well and smoothly. That's great news for me!
    However, now I am trying to work out how to get the audio exported without issues. I actually had the idea of just playing the audio in the timeline and recording it via Stereo Mix, but my Windows 7 driver has Stereo Mix disabled, so it's back to square one. Any ideas of what I can do about the corrupted audio not exporting, which works fine when played in the timeline?

  • Premiere Pro CS4 added contrast H.264 preview files

    Hi,
    Any help I can get with this problem would be amazing.
    I recently updated my OS to 10.6 as there were programs I wanted to run not available on 10.5, however this caused other issues with Premiere that I couldn't fix so I just decided to go back to 10.5. With both installs I reformatted the hard-drive then installed the OS. Now that I've reinstalled OSX 10.5 and updated to the most current version, and then installed Premiere Pro CS4 and updated that to the most current version (4.2.1) and also updated the codecs for Premiere, I'm having an issue with my preview/render files in my timeline that I never had before. It appears that now when I render my original H.264 files the preview/render files have added contrast/crushed blacks and blown out highlights.
    Basically I'm editing H.264 footage from a DSLR, and when I open up a project that I was working on before I began this upgrade mess it opens correctly, but if I extend a clip in my timeline to include part of the original clip that was not previously rendered, Premiere renders this clip with what appears to be increased gain and pedestal/increased contrast. I've also tried this in a new project and it still renders with much more contrast than it used to. Whether in a new project or previous project, Premiere seems to decrease pedestal so my blacks are around/below 7.5 IRE and my whites are at/above 100 IRE. it looks really messed up when this occurs in the middle of a clip that was half rendered before and half after the install. Also I'll bet it's not going to help when it comes to color correcting and it looks like I could be losing image data.
    I don't know what has caused this as it was working properly before my attempted upgrade, and I installed Premiere the exact same way as I did the last time I installed it and I'm using the same version. The only hiccup was after the install and upgrade it said media offline on my old project until it asked me to update codecs, once codecs were updated it displayed all footage in my timeline correctly and then I noticed that I could no longer render preview files to the same standard.
    Here are screen shot comparisons of a video from my timeline. These are back to back frames, the top one was rendered before the most recent install, the other rendered after. I have put a YC Waveform chart beside the image. Sorry I think the best way to see it is just to follow the link otherwise it's gonna be too small.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8101475154/sizes/l/in/photostream/
    Also here is a screenshot of the settings I'll describe below.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8101463115/sizes/l/in/photostream/
    Computer:
    Mac OSX 10.5.8

    29.97 fps
    1280 x 720
    square pixels
    30fps drop-code
    I-Frame Only MPEG  (video codec)
    I've already searched for a solution to this but come up with nothing. I read a bunch of stuff on the increase in gamma that can happen with .mov files but I don't think this applies to my situation as I would have been having that same issue with my previously rendered footage.
    Anything would be really helpful...Thanks
    Message was edited by: Mike542

    Okay so I've been looking into this in depth over the past few days and I haven't come up with a lot. I have noticed that it's not just the render files but also the inspection window where the clip displays in this manner. It looks like the luma range (as seen in YCbCr scope) is being limited between 7.5 and 92 IRE and I think this is maybe a good indicator of the problem. Why this is happening I don't understand. On my clips that were previously rendered in this timeline there is full range from 0 to 100 in the luma from the YCbCr scope. These files were rendered to an external drive from before I reinstalled Premiere, so it's any h.264 files that I am using after reinstall that are having this issue. I have attached another screen capture illustrating this (look at line to right of scope showing full luma range). Also I have some .mts files from another camera and they import with full luma range as well.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8114886495/sizes/l/in/photostream/
    When playing my h.264 files in Quicktime or VLC they look about the same in terms of blown out whites and crushed blacks. Does Premiere rely on Quicktime for its h.264 codec or does it have it's own? Is there a way to force premiere to update its codecs/manually download and replace the h.264 codec?
    I really can't understand what's happening here and I can't do any work when imported clips are this messed up. Can someone please help out on this!!! Super frustrating and seems to constantly happen with Premiere...

  • Need help with 24fps in Premiere Pro CS4

    I am having issues  working with 24fps imported video. My computer hardware is an AMD dual core processor running at 2.6GHz. It has 2GB of Kingston Hyper-X memory, 2x 300GB hard drives (not RAID), and an Nvidia 7900GS video card with 256MB video ram. My operating system is Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1. I am running Premiere Pro CS4 with all the current updates.
    So here is the issue I am having. I captured video on a Canon XL2 in 24fps, 16:9 widescreen, and 2:3:3:2 pulldown. My CS4 project settings were set up as DV-24P Widescreen 48KHz. I did not try changing other settings on the other tabs. I captured the video directly from the XL2 with no dropped frames. The resulting AVI plays back in Windows Media Player 11 correctly. What I mean by that is the is no jerky video, I get no raster lines, and the video quality is very clear. When I load the video into the time line and play it back in the program monitor the video jerks like it is dropping frames, I get raster lines and it looks like video clarity fades in and out.
    At first I thought nothing about it. I used Adobe Media Encoder, and burned a DVD. Playback on my widescreen TV looked jerky, rastered, and the video was only clear in static scenes. So I made some test projects with different settings. Still had no success. The original capture looks good, but whatever I do in Premiere the video jerks and looks like old VHS video.
    I did another test. I set the XL2 to 30P and 4:3, and captured the video. Again the captured AVI looks good. Put it on the Premiere timeline and played it in the program monitor. It plays fine - good video quality, no rastering, and no jerking. Made a DVD with no problems in the video. So my question is what setting in Premiere do I need to capture, edit, and export 24fps 16:9 widescreen video so that it plays back with with the same video quality as it was captured? Do you think it is an encoder problem? The captured AVI is what ever encoder came with Windows/Premiere as I have not added any other encoders.
    Any help would be apperciated. If I have not supplied enough information, please just ask.  

    If the video is playing back badly in Premiere Pro from the timeline, then the things I would check would be the program monitor quality - is it set to highest...if you don't know where that it is, click on the 4 horizontal lines in the top corner of the program monitor - make sure highest quality is selected. It also may be a video card issue - are your drivers up to date? If the clips are only playing back badly on the PPro timeline (and anything exported from it), but fine in Windows Media Player - something is up.
    As for the frame rate - no, you don't have to work at 24P...as mentioned before, the camera actually records at 29.97 fps, but is able to be played back and edited at 23.976 fps (or 24P)...it's a complicated explanation on how it all works...
    If you're going to finish to a regular DVD, then working at 29.97 is the way to go. As for the interpret footage command, highlight the clips in your bin, then right click on them - in the menu, you'll see interpret footage - click on that and a new window should open...you should see a box with a check next to it that says remove 24P pulldown - click it (removing the check) and the footage frame rate should change to 29.97 - then click OK...create a 29.97 sequence (DV NTSC Widescreen 48Khz), and edit away.

    They say when Installing unplug your Internet connection or disconnect from the Internet but still appears
    i hope someone can help me

    I am confused... first you say you downloaded CS4 (which means to connect to an Internet server and download from there to your computer) and then you say you have a disc in the drive... which is it?
    If you do have a disc, and you use Windows Explorer... does it read the disc contents?
    I am not sure (I went from CS3 to CS5 and did not ever use CS4) but is that a DVD disc or a CD... and do you have a DVD drive?
    More computer information would help

  • Premiere Pro CS4 Crashes every time I toggle to another application

    Dell Latitude D630 laptop w/Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. Running Production Premium CS4. PPro runs great except that any time I click out of it, even for the simplest function, like adjusting volume from the taskbar, PPro crashes. I previously ran CS3 in WinXP without issue. Any ideas?

    While using Premiere Pro CS4, if I click out of it for any reason, ex: adjusting volume on the taskbar (no other application [photoshop, after effects, etc.] running) or toggling to another application, Premiere Pro crashes and a new windows appears:
    "Adobe has detected that the applicationAdobe Premiere Pro CS4 has unexpectedly quit. A crash report has been generated. Adobe will use this crash report to help find a future solution to this problem."
    The first time I got this, I decided to fill out the crash report and send it in, but not since.
    Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide that will help find a cause for this problem.

  • Premiere pro CS4+media encoder CS4 problem encoding to WMV and MOV

    Hello,
    I am new to CS4. I lurked around the meanders of CS4 help and FAQ. In spite of the large help database I could not find a solution to my issue.
    I edited a little movie from shots I took during holidays. I edited in premiere pro cs4 and it is a bit faster than CS3 <yoohoo>
    However I want to export the movie as NTSC source to high quality download. In the Expot settings,  I wrote a file output of course so it can encode and compile the movie somewhere on my HDD and I did not touch anything in standad NTSC source to high quality download values and tabs. In the end the movie should be around 848 mega.
    I press OK, then Media Encoder pops up on screen. my project comes automatically in Media Encoder which is neat so I just had to click on start Queue but here is my problem...
    I can wait for 4 hours or more, Media Encoder status states Encoding but nothing moves forward. Elapsed time remains at 00:00:00, Estimated Remaining remains blank.
    Although something triggered my attention when I widen Media Encoder Source Name tab. It sounds like my project from Premiere Pro is placed in a temporary folder instead of using the regular save project file folder in ...>adobe>premiere pro>4>sebsofie2010b which strange.
    I try to place a picture of my issue and perhaps it will help everyone.
    This picture was taken about 1 hour and half after I tried to encode the movie for the fifth time.
    The status quotes "Encoding"...
    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hello,
    This is Song to an Illiad. I had to change Email address and password as I am switching provider soon.
    So Ok to bypass the issue at that time, I simply transfered all files to a jumpdrive and re-did the composition at a friend house. Although my problem persist and Thank you for the Wiki link it was helpful. Sherlock free ware discovered several erronous Codec. Do not ask me why, how, when please. I do not toy around with codecs and all I do is update software but I have several software going from Adobe to Autodesk series as well as Nero Light version that came with my Dvd burner.  Should I also mention I play video games when down time permits, as such I updated several time the DirectX software. Beside this, what is it called... Dvix or Xvid, well something like that... prompted me about 2 months ago to update to a newer version which I did. Finally I installed a freeware to export an avi type to another found on Cnet.com a few months ago as the file could be seen in Premiere pro but there were no Audio track seen in premiere while the client gave me his camcorder and I knew there should be an audio track, it was a sort of camcorder that records on a memory sticks which is why the camera was small. It was a canon but nothing more detailed than that. Anyway, I had the camera with no drivers whatsoever and I had a hard time to find the driver for free online which is why I found a freeware or perhaps was it a shareware or a trial (I am not sure), anyway it decoded and re-encoded the movie which it did successfully with lots of image loss quality but it was succesful. I know I deliberatly threw the shareware or trial straight in the garbage once I was done because I do not want this kind of junk on my PC. Perhaps could it be the issue with Media Encoder not able to start?!?!
    Here comes a couple of texts Copy/Past & image to describe what Sherlock found

    What should I do? Can I just reinstall the codec from my Adobe CS4 Production Suite (Without) creating more issues and problems? It seemed the Wiki hints were helpful to pin point a problem but not always at giving solution.
    Thanks in advance,
    Seb
    P.S: Could Adobe throw a little software to download to ensure all codecs are what they should be like and prompt user to reinstall straight from our Dvds? It would be soo much easier that way.
