    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.

  1. Go to the my computer right click on the drive and got to the recording tab and enable recording
  2. Reinstall roxio software
  3. Restart the computer
  4. Guess what you should be able to burn your disks now

Some things to think about, no all products (such as Nero or Roxi are set to be compatible with MS compatible products, Pioneer is a goos product but may noe be compadible with Roxio, try Windows Media Player this will tell you if it is Roxio or something else

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

Lite On LH-20A1H DVD RW burner refuses to recognize DL disks?


I have an LH-20A1S, & I am using Roxio Easy CD
Creator 6; Yes, I know there are newer versions, but they all ****! Anyway, it USED to work just fine in recognizing DL DVD's W/the updates from Roxio's site. & now there is no option there for this size (8.5)w/in the actual Creator prog. Is it the drive? This JUST started happening recently. Any clue if it IS the drive? & if so, any idea what caused this? I've always used Lite-On's & have NEVER had this sort of prob before! & of course it is out of warranty, & a discontinued model to boot! standar DVD drives are real cheap inprice these days, but STILL I do't wanna have to buy an new one if I can 'fix' it. BTW, I have updated the latest firmware for this drive from Lite-On's site too, & it didn't resolve this issue either!

LG MODEL NUMBER GSA-H42N 18X SUPERMULTI DVD BURNER NOT ABLE TO WRITE ON SONY DVD-RW DISC


in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.

If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
