  1. I felt sure the Registry changes would spark it back into life, Brendon. A bit of a shame but what's meant to be... I very much appreciate your help though and I hope I don't need it again but if I do, I know where to find you best wishes Rick

    It seems I do folks. So I'll close this with a different profile pic which I changed from Wordpress where your photo is managed using the Gravatar service. cheers

    I hadn't heard of that service before but when I type my email address into http://aruljohn.com/gravatar/ my profile pic appears. Maybe that is the reason for it.

    I can't see how I could have done. I've only been on this site for 12 days. And until earlier today couldn't remember where that profile pic was stored.

    no thanks - I'd like to make any amendments myself p.s. if you know where the pic came from why don't you say? p.p.s. I've managed get my Time Zone correct by changing it from GMT to something else, saving, then back to GMT again. There is also Location field which I missed initially. Still no idea how the pic got here but I've found it amongst the photos at the Glastonbury Festival in 2009.

    Of course the photo could only have been posted by me! But I currently do not even know where that photo now is to be able to have posted it in this Forum during the past 12 days of membership! Anyhow, I believe it's been picked it from www.wordpress.com which I find surprising (maybe there's something in the small print). However, the photo was only one part of the purpose of this post.

    Hi Advice sought on changing profile details please. I set up my account on 15 October 2014 and was surprised to notice a photograph of me against my name when, as far as I can recall, I had not had time to uploaded one. I thought at first it was one I had on my Google account but that one is slightly different. Where did the Forum's system pick it up from? Also, I can not find whereabouts to edit my profile details. I know it's not too important but I feel it's more polite to at least be able to state your country and gender. Regards Rick p.s. is it possible to get one's postings reflect the correct date & time of the country they are in? I have just posted this and it's showing 07:56 instead of 15:56 (GMT).
  8. Hi Brendon Alas, no change with my "no supported cd-recorders" condition. For the record, this is what I carried out... Located TS-H492A value related to device068 for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adaptec\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine\Devices1 Amended it to "TSSTcorp CDW/DVD TS-H492B,TSSTcorp,CDW/DVD TS-H492B,MTK4832_Liteon,cdrmmc.drv,155,,9" Also located TS-H492A against 3 other keys but left them alone for the time being. Rebooted PC and tried ECDC. Amended the 3 other keys to read TS-H492B:- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\pwd_2K\device742\Parameters PARAM1 = "CDW/DVD TS-H492B" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\pwd_2K\device742\Parameters PARAM1 = "CDW/DVD TS-H492B" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\pwd_2K\device742\Parameters PARAM1 = "CDW/DVD TS-H492B" Rebooted PC and tried ECDC. Short of trying it with another CD Writer (which I don't currently possess) I think I'll source a later version of the software. Meanwhile I am still able to use Sonic's RecordNow! (Which, just to make sure, I checked was still working after the changes.) Many thanks for your assistance. Rick

  10. Hi cdanteek I had forgotten about that launch screen. It doesn't appear any more and has not done so for quite a while. I do remember that not all of the options were available and can't remember if it said 'Platinum' in the top left hand corner. I've had a good look through 'Program Files' but can't an .exe for it. Cheers Rick
  11. Hi Brendon Many thanks for your reply and the driveup5.3.5v file which I've downloaded and run. It is now showing version 5.3.5.10v and as far as I believe it is the Basic version. There are no clues on installation disk which has printed on it Easy CD Creator 5.1.1.104K and DirectCD 5.1.1.210K. Nor on any of the files on that disk. I've search all the drop down menus within the product but can not confirm whether it's Basic or Platinum. What is my next step please? I did try burning a CD to see if anything had changed but it produced the now familiar "no supported cd-recorders available". How do we go about editing the look-up tables you refer to? Regards Rick
  12. Firstly, apologies in advance if this is a bit lengthy… Before I give up on my version I felt I ought to check with the more knowledgeable people on here that my version of Easy CD Creator is unlikely to work again. Little background: I like Easy CD Creator interface and have used it for many years. Starting with version 3 then 4 under Windows 98 and eventually needing to buy version 5 for an XP machine. The Win98 machine still works but struggles from time to time. The main purpose of both these machines is for recording, editing and mixing my music. So a CD burner is rather useful. Up to earlier this year Easy CD Creator version 5.1.1 worked fine but completely out of the blue I started getting "there are no supported cd-recorders available". Fortunately I was able to switch to Sonic's RecordNow! - which came with the Dell Dimension 3000 running XP. But I would much rather continue with the 'friendlier' Easy CD Creator. I have been through all of the Registry changes and uninstalls/reinstalls documented here and elsewhere a number of times. I've search through the Registry list of supported Easy CD Creator devices and can not find an entry for mine. Which is "TSSTcorp CDRW/DVD TSH492B". Which makes me wonder why it worked for 4 or more years before it stopped. I know for sure that I had been successfully running version 5 alongside Windows Media Player (WMP) version 11 and IE8 for quite some time before it failed. (Although IE has not been my first choice browser for a few years now. It's currently Chrome which appears to use less resources.) With that in mind I have uninstalled WMP 11 and IE8 and they have been automatically replaced by Windows with WMP 9 and IE6. I then reinstalled Easy CD Creator version 5 and it runs but still receive the error message when I try to burn a CD. Just to make sure, I have uninstalled it again, rebooted, reinstalled and rebooted. So... 1) has anyone managed to overcome the "there are no supported cd-recorders available" problem expressed elsewhere in this forum? 2) where can I find the often mentioned "recognition patch: driveup.5.3.5v.exe"? It would be nice to download it and test it out on my version. 3) if, as I suspect, I have to purchase another version of the software is it safe to assume my drive will be recognised? and, 4) as an aside… do later versions of Easy CD Creator recognize earlier layout files? I have many .cl3, .cl4 & .cl5 files which were useful documentation at one time but potentially useless now. Most software providers consider file compatibility with new versions of their software. Any advice will be gratefully received - good or bad. Many thanks Rick
