Creater 7 will not record dvd or cds


If you are getting an error "No dvd/cd drive detected", you need to delete the roxio certificate.

Goto C:\program data\, find the roxio or sonic folder and delete it and restart the computer.

In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.

Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

Installation and operating failures to save or burn.

When you install the program, it provides an Ignore button to avoid the conflict? It's strange that you must uninstall one software to use the other one.

Incompatible Driver(s)

I would uninstall Photosuite.

I don't think that Roxio is supporting that program anymore. I have version 7.0 and it does some goofy things in Windows XP they never fixed in the slide show mode.
