Question about Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6 (cdrvlpe6101250) for PC

1 Answer

CANNOT INITIALIZE API - REINSTALL THE SOFTWARE

I´m user of Roxio Products since it was named ADAPTEC (around 1998) and I have all the original versions of Easy CD Creator, Easy CD and DVD Creator and also Easy Media Creator 7.0 installed in a XP based machine. This matter concerns to EZCD 6.0 which is installed in a Pentium III 750 machine running W98 Second Edition and 1GB of RAM. No troubles until two days ago when the subject message first appears. No changes have been made in the machine, no new softwares installed, no viruses or trojans, very clean register, WMPlayer 9.0 installed for a long time, just a few programs running because this machine is used only and solely for NLE jobs (Creation of Home Videos). Tried to update version 6.XXX to the version suggested by Roxio but problem still exists (only when attempt to run Creator Classic). I have reinstalled software (original) but problem continues. Have removed the software and installed the old version (EZCD Creator 5.0) but problem also continues too. I have burned one DVD last week as I do always with no problems. Could you suggest anything please? I have many cd´s and dvd´s to burn, because is time to update my backups but cannot initialize the engine. Thank you for any suggestion!

    Dear friend,



    I have attempted to fix the problem with EZCD 6.0 for many days and decided to migrate to Windows XP Professional Edition. My PC consist of a PIII 750MHz, 1GB SDRAM 133, MB Asus P3V4X, Miro DC-30Pro Capture Card, one HD for the OS and softwares, one HD for data and one 10.000 rpm SCSI HD controlled by Adaptec 19160 for the capture of video. I use Première 5.1c for edditing, Holywood FX for effects, Title Deko for titles and TMPG 2.5 for encoding thru Avisynth Frame Server. Also have original CD of Roxio Media Creator 7.0 for XP and updates. Do you recomend this migration in order to solve the problem? I found out that DC-30Pro works very well in XP, except that will not be possible to export to video thru DC30. In the other hand, i will not face the limitation of 2GB files. Nowadays I no longer export to video, due to the encoding to MPEG2 and DVD burning. Based on your own experience with hardwares, do you think that my hardware will work well on XP? Thanks again!

When you installed the 5.0 in, did you put the update in also?

ecdc_v53.5.10 basic_enu

You will need this or 5.0 will not run.

My problem is exactly like the one chrisn569 on Dec 21, 2009 related to you. I bought Roxio Creator 2010 and it installed fine the first time but now I can't uninstall. I tried to repair it with the disc...


Running the RegCure won't help. Use RevoUninstaller to remove the entire program (Roxio) as Revouninstaller will show you all the registry entries which you can delete it very easily.

The upgrade from DE to the retail version of Roxio 9 will basically uninstall your actual software to reinstall the new one. Be aware that Roxio 9.0.088 isn't fully compatible with Vista. Only 9.1 is compatible with vista

Installation of Roxio 2009


This aint a solution but theres a forum out there with guys having same problem as that of yours. Also there is a suggestion given there that you first copy the disc contents and then uninstall the previous files, clean the registry using any free cleaner and reinstall from the copied setup. Try this.It may work. http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?showtopic=42410

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

Cannot Initialize API


1. Try to launch Creator Classic to see if it can repair the engine files. a. Double click on the "Roxio Easy Media Creator Home" icon. b. Click "Creator Classic" under the "Applications" section. c. The Windows installer should launch and ask you to insert your installation disc

Try this and see how it works, if it does not, contact me and give me more details

Can't open Roxio


Maybe your activation your your software is illegal. or maybe your installer doesn't really have all the requirements or the needed components to have full the instalation process. try to reinstall your software, but if it doesn't work, maybe you can call your software dealer.
