    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.

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 pioneer dvdr112 will play dvd/cd fine but nero and other burning aps will not recognise the drive ? burning


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

Cannot make mp3 files from cds


Don't bother using Roxio for this - use Windows Media Player 11.
1. Open Windows Media Player
2. Run the mouse over the "Rip" tab - a small aroow should appear underneath the word "Rip" - click on the arrow and a drop-down should appear.
3. Select - "Format" - change to "mp3"
4. Now insert your CD and press the Rip button - by default, Windows Media Player will store the mp3 files in the My Documents --> My Music folder

Now use Roxio to make a CD out of the Mp3 files

Good luck!

You may not have a CD burner in your computer or it is faulty.
Make sure you have a CD RW drive in the computer. You cannot burn a CD using a CD ROM drive. If you have a burner then Roxio will detect this drive.
You may not have enabled your CD drive to record.
Click on My Computer, then right click on the CD drive and click on Properties, Click on the Recording Tab, then tick Enable CD Recording on this Drive.

EZCD 5.0 and EZCD 6.0


I don't think that 6 and 5 are compatible 6 is an upgrade from 5. I have just 5 on one of my old XP computers and it works fine, but that's all I have. I went to the website and they are not giving any support for Roxio 6 anymore.
I will tell you that Roxio Easy Media Creator is fantastic. The things you can do with that are unbelieveable. I got it at Sam's Club for about $70. But I know that does not solve your problem.

Roxio 5
To burn data files, Open project selector, make a data cd, click data cd project. WhenEasy CD Creator 5 opens and you choose your files to burn, try this: Select Disc at Once Radio button, click okay and click burn.

OS: Issue When burning a CD or DVD, you receive an error, burning does not complete, or your media is rejected. Resolution Burning errors can happen for a variety of reasons. Roxio has found that doing the following steps resolves about 80% of all burning issues. Please give all these steps a try and see if it fixes your writing problems.

  1. Update your drive's firmware/drivers. Most companies regularly update their firmware and drivers. If you are unsure what model your burner is and its firmware, click here to find out.

  2. Enable DMA. Direct Memory Access enables better efficiency of data. For more info, check how to enable DMA.
  3. The media. Check the following:
    • The disc is clean and unused.
    • The media is recommended by your burner's manufacturer or try a different brand, preferably a name brand, if you continue to have problems.
    • Make sure that media (-R/+R, -/+RW, dual-layer compatibility) is supported by the burner by checking burner's manual or manufacturer's website. This is especially true for some Blu-Ray burners which do not support CD-R/RW media.


  4. If your burner is external, make sure it is connected directly to the computer via USB/Firewire and not a hub or other other device like a sound card.
  5. Update to the latest PX Engine. The PX Engine improves compatibility with newer burners on the market.
  6. A reinstall of the burner's drivers may also help.
    • Windows XP: Go to My Computer and choose Properties.
    • Windows Vista: Go to Start --> Control Panel --> System and Maintenance --> Device Manager.
    • Click on the Hardware tab.
    • Select Device Manager
    • Expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives, then select your burner and uninstall it by right -licking on it.
    • Reboot.

I do know if you have Roxio5 you cannot installed Nero 6 InCD, not compatible. Other than all of the above, I have no more suggestions. I am really sorry, wish I could work on your computer to figure out the problem. This is my specialty. Reloading computer and figuring out problems. It is so much easier hands on.
Good Luck

Formatting a file to an audio cd


write an 'audio cd' by the roxio creator, instead of directly buring the file to CD

Please choose an option to write 'audio CD' bcos most of the CD players do not recognise other formats

u may use some free audio CD creation softwares also... If i am right, winamp may also help

:)

Try to tell me.... whether my suggestion was useful???

Bye

:)

Have a nice day.
