Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Roxio is error prone in my opinion; my fix was to uninstall Roxio, clean the registry, and re-install Roxio. A PITA for sure, but it worked.
Here's what I did (backup/export you registry first):
1. Uninstalled Roxio from the control panel; it's not called Roxio there, it's "Easy CD DVD.........."
2. Deleted all normally viewable Roxio folders
3. Ran Regcleanr (Tools/Registry Cleaner/Do Them All) and removed all errors
4. Ran RegscrubXP and removed all errors
6. Repeated 3. and 4. above
7. Reinstalled Roxio accepting all defaults.
8. Confirmed in Device Manager that my IDE/ATAPI Controller was the standard dual channel and all drives were set to a DMA mode
Took about twenty minutes, but has worked for me on a couple of my computers for various Roxio problems. A third computer did require a complete Windows installation rebuild.
You might also want to check you Application and System event viewer for clues.
If you are using a round data cable to the optical drive(s), try an 18" flat one.....either 40 or 80 conductor.
Try the flat cable with only one optical drive attached as master at the cable end connection.
It's also a good idea to defrag your system hard drive and check it for errors.
try using Nero instead of roxio
dvd shrink and or dvd decrypter
CloneDVD 2 with anydvd
guides to use them
and burn at 4x max.
Thanks for contacting Fixya
