    Roxio worked fine for well over a year and sometime between last month and last week, decided it didn't want to recognize CD-RW drive anymore. DirectCD no longer works, and reports error "DirectCD cannot find any supported recordable drives" on some user logins, but not others (although it won't work on any account).

    According tohttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/294479, "This behavior can occur because Roxio DirectCD Creator versions 5.00, 5.01, 5.02, and 5.02a are not compatible with Windows XP." However, this system was running Roxio Creator version 5.3.4.

    Tried upgrading to 5.3.5, but this did not help at all.

    CD-RW still works fine in drag-drop mode using basic Windows burning engine, but Roxio drivers will not load.

    Tried reseating power/SATA cables, also no help.

    We really need DirectCD specifically to work, as a third-party application's internal backup scripts depend on it.

Roxio burn exe file problem


I can't find the Roxio Burn on my computer. I keep using the shortcut on desktop, but it keeps popping up that the shortcut isn't useful if not installed. But it came installed on my computer when I bot the computer a month ago, and I have actually used it to burn a couple of cd's, but I can't locate it now. What is the problem?

I am using Roxio 7.5 to create a System Back-up. It is asking me to insert a Content CD?


In-pack is a 64-page manual, plus two CDs. One is the installation disc for VideoWave Movie Creator (V1.5.545.0); the other is the contents CD and carries video (AVI), audio (WAV) and still image (JPEG) files for use as templates within StoryBuilder. The wizard-based installation promps for the content CD to be loaded. Roxio recommends using the Full or Typical installation options, which copy the contents CD to hard disk.
