Roxio Creator NXT Pro is an application suite that contains a number of different programs, all of which have to do with DVD burning. Roxio Creator NXT Pro is one of the absolute best DVD burning suites out there, and among the various programs that it contains is VideoWave – an application that allows users to work with video files. Back in 2013, many users of Roxio Creator NXT Pro started experiencing an irritating issue where they would receive an error message stating “VideoWave has stopped” every time they tried to launch VideoWave or MyDVD from the Roxio Creator NXT Pro suite.
After receiving the error message, an affected user would have no choice but to close the program they tried to launch – meaning that affected users simply lose their ability to launch and use VideoWave and MyDVD. This problem is especially common among Windows 7 users, although it has been known to affect all versions of the Windows OS. Seeing as though VideoWave and MyDVD are extremely important programs included in the Roxio Creator NXT Pro suite, this is quite a significant problem.
