If the pc isn't recognizing the hardware the main reason this happens is that you need to install the proper drivers.

I re-install roxio creator 9, after install windows7, and don't recognize any dvd-cd unit installed, so i can't run roxio creator 9. i have a hp notebook, and roxio creator 9 came with it? what can i do?


Windows7 is still being developed and as far as I know it has some compatibility issue with many hardware etc..Check compatibility with manufacture before you look any further.

Not reading cd's


After i try to find the registry (which is not available)
Why not give this a try:
  1. Start your computer after SHUTDOWN
  2. After your DESKTOP appear on the screen for about 10 second, QUICKLY INSERT ANY CD/DVD (in my case I insert Glee)
  3. Let the computer run for a while, don't do anything until it settle down
  4. Check at MY COMPUTER whether your cd is detected
  5. I got mine work this way!. Good Luck my friends!

Cannot Initialize API


1. Try to launch Creator Classic to see if it can repair the engine files. a. Double click on the "Roxio Easy Media Creator Home" icon. b. Click "Creator Classic" under the "Applications" section. c. The Windows installer should launch and ask you to insert your installation disc

Try this and see how it works, if it does not, contact me and give me more details
