Question about Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator 6.1 Basic VCD Edition (EZCDDVD) for PC

1 Answer

Roxio 6 install issues

I have been trying to install Roxio Easy Creator 6 standard edition, and Roxio Easy Creator 7 standard edition, and Roxio Easy Creator 8 Platium and cannot install any of these on my Pc. I originally had installed Roxio Easy Creator 7 standard edition on my Pc when I first got it. This version came with a dvd burner I had purchased. All worked well, until I decided to change it because it would not run on my resolution of 800x600. It kept changing to a higher resolution which was very hard for me to read because everything was so small. So I have a copy of Roxio Easy Creator 6 standard edition, which is installed on another pc of mine, and thought I would install it on my new pc. Well this is where the fun starts.
When I tried to install version 6, my pc would not boot up again. It just keep recycling over and over. The only thing that saved my butt was a product called GO BACK. Which when I used it, my system was returned to normal. So I tried this 3 times, then my nephew gave me a copy of Roxio Easy Creator 8 Platium more than I really wanted but tried to install it and guess what, pc won’t boot again. Tried that twice. Now in total despair I install Nero 6 which I also had from a former cd burner, and no problem installed fine and used it for a couple days, but I get too many errors with it and I really like Roxio better. Seems I can not make a mistake with it and have used it for years. Ok I will reinstall my version 7 standard edition, and live with the resolution problem and use a magnifying glass when I use it. Well it installs, but wipes out all my drives. CD, DVD Rom, DVD all three gone. Not knowing what to do I use my GO BACK and return my hd to a normal state. I now have my dirves, but no burner software.
Does anyone know of what is causing the conflict with Roxio on my machine? If there is a program that it does not like, I can remove it, but I really need to know what. I am hoping someone out here has the answer. Thank-You

    I am experiencing similar problems when I tried to reload Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator 6.1 Basic. I also have the new Roxio 10 and it won't work as either. It may be that the Virus Protection is affecting the install program, I see that has been a problem on other installs so I will try to reload with the virus program disabled. I have a HP Duel Core with XP Media Center running and at one time both of these programs were up and running but some other program I installed caused me to lose my DVD Drives and I ended up Restoring the computer back to the original settings and had to reload everything. It was at this point the I have been unable to load any Roxio programs.....

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.
