Question about Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition (V03-00054) for PC

1 Answer

Plus! Analog Recorder

I've been recording my records and tapes for over a year. Recently, when I've recorded something new, they don't play on any cd players in or outside the house. Did I click something by accident, or is there a problem with the program. I contacted Microsoft, who no longer supports the program. THey said they would be happy to look into it for $35! I'll think twice before I buy a program from them again.

Thanks a million!

Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels

It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

How can i make write protected content in my CD so that the data cannot be copied to any machine without permission. Which version of Nero supports for it and how to achieve it?? If any other software...

there are many solutions for ur issue...but the solution is based on what kind of CD u plan to the solutions differ....
google and look for a solution that u need...
also there are many softwares than can RIP any kind of CD even though they may be created using a copy protect...many of the movies CD/DVD are copy protect(it's difficult to make a disk copy of that CD/DVD)....but the same can be played on any DVD player...the movie signal from the DVD player that is received by the TV can be recorded using any recording equip...(VCR, Camcorder, digital recorder, computer using special digital recording equip etc) and the same when is available in a PC as a E-file the same can be just copied on to a blank's a known fact that crackers/pirates are more smarter than the ones who create a new tech....
so even though u may be able to create a copy protected CD, it I am sure can be pirated/ripped by many means...

Not detecting a recorder in Roxio Creator 6 when I tried to burn a cd

Roxio 6 is fairly old software. What OS are you using it with? Do you have a new CD / DVD recorder? If so, there is a good chance it is not supported by the software. If you have a new drive, try getting the latest updates from Roxio. They are very hard to find so I include a link here

My drag to disc says "no recorder"

What has changed since it worked? That is the first step. Try a system restore to that point. NOT a full restore. If that doesnt work uninstall drivers and dwnld new ones from Roxio.

Nero express


Maybe you have some other writing software installed that stops nero seeing your drives. Uninstall that software and reinstall nero.

Power Calibration Error.

first re install your nero .and
A) Power Calibration is controlled by the recorder. Before any write operation, all recorders must do a 15 step power test to determine the optimum power for writing to the CD; this is called "Optimum Power Calibration"(OPC). And during the write, it continues to do this test to get the best write throughout the whole CD; this is called "Running Optimum Power Calibration" (ROPC). This whole process is controlled by the recorder, though initiated by programs such as Nero. There is an area on the inner part of the CD for the test and test data info to be stored. You can use this area up to 999 times.

So, when you receive the "Power Calibration Error" or "Power Calibration Area full" error message, then the cause will be either poor media, poor Power, or a defective Recorder.

1) A might enable the OPC on this medium

2) Try another brand of CDR or CDRW media.

3) Also try different power connectors, and for recorders, do not share power with other devices. It needs its own power connector. If this occurs with an External recorder, the power source in the chassis could be the cause. Take the recorder out of the external chassis, and connect it internal, as a test.

4) Try different configurations, such as taking the CDROM to the Primary IDE bus as Slave, and have only the recorder connected to the Secondary IDE bus as Master.

5) Send the recorder in for Service.

I Hope this helps,
