I just installed Expression Media to give it a try.  This is on a machine with e6700 cpu(s), 4GB of memory, 8600 GT video, and about 2.5TB of storage running XP64 SP2. 

It starts, lets me create a catalog, and I was able to import 1 image.  But, doing an import of a directory with 50 or so .dng files
causes xMedia to crash with an event error that says the faulting module is quicktime.qts.

When I installed xMedia it INSISTED I install Quicktime 7.2, which I did. 

I know there hasn't been much support in here for moving to xMedia so I can stay with Portfolio 8 or Lightroom 1.2, but has anybody seen this
problem and found a way around it?

I had that problem when I upgraded my video drivers to the latest from NViidia.  Apparently it is Quicktime's bug, but it is the latest video drivers that trigger the problem.

Until they fix Quicktime I downgraded my video drivers to the previous incarnation and all is good now.

Based on your feedback I went out and got the newest video drivers for the 8600.  I figured going backward
was a poor choice so I was hoping that the current drivers would get this thing working...

No such luck.  I guess Expression Media is going into the round file until they get this fixed...  I'd report it
but I've been down that road before and with Microsoft its ALWAYS somebody else's fault, never the
operating system or whichever of their products is puking on its own shoes...

So, I'm down to 3...  Iview 3.1.3, Portfolio 8.5, and Lightroom 1.2

Just a note that it is NVidia that says it is a Quicktime problem, not Microsoft.

Doesn't surprise me since its quicktime.qts that appears to be puking...... 

In either case, its not worth messing with.  Until, if ever, Microsoft comes out
with a version that works right, has usable features, and is priced in a range
that's acceptable for PC users...
