You did not state either  the type of computer or the type of cd/dvd drive. It could be either an IDE-ATA or and S-ATA, so I am going to guess that you are removing the old CD on a PC and installing the new cd/DVD. If an IDE-ATA (That is the one with a whole lot of pins that a ribbon cable attaches too) thge look on the back to make sure that it is either set to cable select or Master. After hooking the wires and screws ,just like the old CD had attached,close the case and start the computer.  At this point it would act exactly like a CD burner. You must install DVD burner software not to use it as a DVD player /burner. Install your ROXIO and  you should be ready to go.  If I missed anything or misunderstood just let me know. Good luck.

When I open my roxio easy CD & DVD burning it tells me roxio has quit wqrking


Remove it and re-install it. It's possible something went wrong during install. Check also that all the drivers are uptodate.

Windows 7 says I need a digital driver


Hi David,

I have worked for the tech support for this product before, and if you are using a 64bit computer, you will need to go to the ROXIO website to download the drivers for this particular product because normally this is only for 32 bit users.

Regards,

Installing my roxio cd &dvd burner


It is possible that Auto-play is off on your computer. Try launching the CD from My Computer (or Computer, depending on your OS). Double click on the icon then double click on the D: drive (or the location of your optical drive). If the CD is accessed, find the exe file to launch the install. (If you want to turn on Auto-play, it is in the Control Panel under Hardware and Sound for Win7. It is in a similar place in other versions of Windows.)

If the direct access doesn't work, check the Device Manager to see if you have any error messages related to the driver for the optical drive. (Try updating the driver if you see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point or a red triangle with an x.) Check that the data cable is fully seated in both the motherboard and the optical drive and not damaged if you have a desktop. (Laptop cables can come loose but are often harder to get to so check your manual.) If the drive still doesn't work, you can try replacing the drive. Again check your manual if you have a laptop. (Optical drives are cheap.)

I hope this helps.

DVDs I burn will not play on other players. Players reject disc


Check that the burner is finalizing the discs. This can be set in Roxio or in the optical drive properties. In Windows 7, right click on the optical drive, choose Properties, then the Recording tab. Then the Global settings lets you choose to finalize the disc on eject. Try a different brand of DVD+R and check that the other players support DVD+R discs. (I know some DVD players only support DVD-R.)

I hope this helps.

Describe your Roxio Easy CD & DVD


Sounds like you don't have a valid license for roxio, or its screwed up.

On a pc, you can just insert the disk you want to burn, open the drive and drag your files on to it, click burn. Or you can download a free utility, such as CD Burner XP, at http://cdburnerxp.se/

if you need to make DVD movies, try this link:

Roxio creator 2009 burning issues


Here's a few things you can try:

1.) Download Service Pack 3 for Creator 2009. This updates the software and is recommended.

http://www.roxio.com/enu/support/c2009/software_updates.html

2.) Update your CD/DVD burner drives. This can be done by going to the manufacturers website and checking for updates. (Ex: If you purchased your computer from Dell and it came with a built in burner, you'd check Dell.com for updates.)

3.) Update the PX Engine. This is Roxio software that communicates with the CD/DVD burner drives.

4.) If all else fails, try visiting this KB article:
