Unfortunately not all software supplied with your machine is free for life. Your operating system is, probably Windows. The other software may be just available for say one year and then you will have to get an update and pay for the use of the of the software. Roxio Creator V9 is probably one of these. Click on the "Expires" window. It will probably take you to the Roxio site and tell you that your software has expired and you will have to pay if yuo wish to continue to use it.
Hi, I had no trouble using my Roxio 10 with windows 7 and my DVD drive. Make sure you have the latest drivers for Windows and your DVD drive. What worked with XP and Vista will not always work with Windows 7. See if your DVD drive manufacturer has an updated driver, or even try drivers from similar manufacturers. Sometime they share driver software. I hope you get it going. Thanks, Bill
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.
What have you tried to install the software. I have found that many software CD's or DVD's need to simply be opened by right-clicking on the drive's icon and selecting the 'Explore' option. When the disc icons are shown, select the Setup.exe or Autorun.exe and the software will install. If after installing the software doesn't run, try running it in compatibillity mode for Windows XP.
Easy Media Creator 7 is not supported on Vista. Easy Media Creator 9 and above are only supported. Anything lower may be able to go onto Vista, but Tech Support is not going to be able to assist you if you have problems.
