Dead Driver for Easy CD Creator

I tried to install Easy CD Creator. It failed because there is no Vista driver available.
But now I get a driver error message EVERY time I power up my PC. Very annoying. How can I uninstall the pesky driver? I`ve uninstalled Easy CD Creator already.
Running a Quad core PC with Vista home premium.
Your advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks...

    I couldnt find any Adaptec or Roxio programs, files or folders.

    So I went to Step 5

    Nothing at Step 6

    Continued then thruogh Steps 7/8/9

    Restarted machine and still got the two error messages telling me a Roxio driver was blocked.

    Also got this notification:

    Data Execution Protection has closed one of your programs. Now I`m worried that I`ve caused irreparable damage to the system!!

    Please advise.

    Many thanks, Art

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

Coprocessor driver for windows 7


Hi,

Try letting Windows update detect and install the coprocessor driver for you.
You may have to perform the Windows update a couple of times before the device is detected.

When you start windows update it will give you a list of software and drivers that are available, you will in the list that there are optional updates available. Check there to see if the coprocessor driver is there and install everything except for the language packs.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you.


Good luck.

Roxio easy cd & dvd creator will not install on windows vista


That's very true of a lot of software. You need to buy a later version that is Vista compatible. If you purchased your program from Roxio, they might offer some kind of upgrade price. There are also several free open-source CD/DVD burner programs available for download that you could look into. A Google search will help you locate some possibilities.
