Question about Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning

1 Answer

My dvd +/- rw drive stopped working

I recently removed Roxio Creator software that was pre-installed on my Dell pc. Subsequent to the uninstall, my drive will not recognize any type of disc. When I close the tray, the "green" light rapidly blinks for a few seconds and then stops. I have the latest driver update from Dell (TSST corp DVD+-RW TS-H553A). The drive is recognized in "My Computer". I have run the Troubleshooter, System Restore and the solutions offered through Microsoft's Support Center (e.g. deleting the UpperFilter and LowerFilter from the registry, removing the device through Device Manager and then reinstalling with the "found new hardware" Wizard, etc.).

Try uninstalling Roxio and the Sonic drives and run Fixit. Then reboot and install Roxio first then the Sonic driver.
If this doesn't work uninstall again as previously, install Roxio and check the CD/DVD if necessary run Fixit then install Sonic driver.

I had roxio creator software and had the drive


After working with Roxio, if you find the software you're looking for, Roxio Tech Support will not be able to give you support. Try contacting Inside Sales or a Roxio Technician and see if they can give you a copy of the software again - it will just depend on where you purchased your original version.

DVD RW - Installation Problem


Ok. What I am going to suggest may seem like a daunting task but if you are careful and do only what I suggest you should be ok. The first thing you are going to have to do is manually make a change to the Windows registry to fix the permissions. 1. Fix registry permissions a. Click on "Start" choose "Run", then type "regedit" and click "OK". b. In the Registry Editor, click on the "+" next to "HKEY_Local_Machine". c. Now click on the "+" next to "Software". d. Right-click on the key (folder) called "Roxio" and choose "Permissions". e. Make sure that "Administrators" and "System" have checkmarks for "Full Control" - "Allow". f. If you had to add those checkmarks, click on "Apply". g. Click on "Advanced". h. Put a checkmark in "Replace permission entries on all child objects with the entries shown here that apply to child objects". i. Click "OK". j. Click "OK" again. k. Now close the Registry Editor Next, you will have to uninstall the Roxio software. 1. Remove Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 a. Go to Start--->Settings--->Control Panel--->Add/Remove Programs b. Select Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 and select "Remove" c. Once the uninstall is complete, reboot the computer. 2. Reinstall Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 a. Insert the CD and install as you did before and then reboot. If you have any issues uninstalling the Roxio, go to the following link to download the Microsoft Cleanup Utility... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 Run the utility after the unistallation attempt and then reboot and reinstall Roxio. Hope this helps. Good luck.
