Roxio Edit Song Information

Question

I have NXT4 and in all other roxio products that I have owned I could highlite an mp3 file or a album of mp3s then right click on the file or all song in the album and on the drop down list there is the Edit Song Information tab. But not so in NXT4, why not. I upgraded to NXT4 to stay upgraded but I got Less for my money. Customer Service is Lip Service, do it again do it again do it again and agin and again and again, with the same results nothing changes and nothing gets corrected. OK then just go back to your Previous Version that worked and just suck it up and forget about the Money you paid. (WE are happy and don't care that you are not happy because WE have your Money. THE END

How you making out with this?

 

I guess that no one knows the answer, hence the lack of response...

 

I just tried this in both NXT 3 & 4, using Roxio Music Disc Creator and Edit Audio Tags is there in both versions. You specified 'Edit Song information' but I do not see that in either version :huh:

Edit Song Information is a right-click context menu item which was provided in Creator 2012 (and perhaps earlier versions) up through NXT, NXT 2, and NXT 3.

However it has not been provided by Roxio in NXT 4.

 

I don't know whether this has been part of Corel's policy to save money or to gradually reduce the suite's capabilities, or whether someone forgot to include it, but it isn't there any more!

 

The first screenshot below is NXT 3 with that menu item, and the second is in NXT 4, without..

Wildebill, I have been trying to "transplant" the feature into NXT 4 for you, but without success.

It's a COM-based feature provided by a DLL called DC_ShellExt.dll which lives in the VirtualDrive folder in NXT 3, but isn't found in NXT 4.

You can't just copy the DLL in and register it, but need to build a CLSID system in the registry to support it. I don't have the resources for that. :(

 

 

Regards,

Brendon

Yes, I have it also. on my music files. It does open the "Roxio Edit Audio Tags."

 

I remember a long time ago, a couple of people complained about it being there.

Jim, don't you have Creator 2012 in there as well? You're seeing it because you don't have a clean install of NXT 4.

 

Steve, if it was "a long time ago" it wouldn't be NXT 4. If you're seeing the right-click menu it's because an earlier version has been installed on your system, since NXT 4 doesn't have that feature.

 

As we all know, installing and then uninstalling a Roxio product leaves an incredible amount of particulates behind, and you need a "virgin" [never seen Roxio] system for testing.

Yes, it was long before NXT 4 that the question was asked

 

The OP said that he had the menu in the earlier versions. Of course that doesn't mean that he didn't do a clean install of NXT 4.

 

That complaint, if I remember correctly, the poster didn't like it being there. I thought that Roxio/Corel might have not included it in NXT 4 because of complaints but one never knows what Roxio/Corel thinks.

Yes I do but the DLL you cited is not on that PC so where is it coming from?

Perhaps you just haven't found it?

Here it is in my Creator 2012. DC_ShellExt.dll.

Yes it is there!

 

I should have mentioned that my doubt about your conclusions was minimal. My searches in Win 10 have been disappointing many times even when I know a file is there :huh:

 

Likewise, in Steve's case, the DLL could be a remnant left after a previous version was removed for NXT 4.

 

Does not appear that the OP has been back. Guess it was a drive by posting but at least it is a little productive ;)
