Disc Copier 7

Question

:)

I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 and it has always worked fine, but today I wanted to copy a DVD to a blank DVD and every time I clicked on Disc Copier and placed my source DVD into the Drive, a small window popped on the screen with the following message: Disc Copier 7 has encountered a problem and needs to close. ((Send report to Microsoft) (Don't Send)

I have downloaded the current Updates but it is still not working.

The DVD I'm trying to copy is a personal home DVD of pictures, and I have copied it before.

Check to see if you have IE7 installed – it will kill V7.

 

Otherwise it might be time to go to Add/Remove Programs and click on Roxio. It will offer a Repair option. I would try a repair first.

James, thanks for the response. I did go to the repair option and now I can copy DVD to DVD. I have a new problem now. My DVD will not finalize to play on other players. I have checked the instructions and have clicked on the command for it to finalize to play on other players when the command is given to eject, but it does not work. My recording is O.K. because it plays on my computer.

Have you tried it on a DVD player? The default is to finalize the disk.

Yes. When I try it on my DVD player, it doesn't accept it.

In the past had you ever copied that same DVD and had it play O.K. on your set top player ? If yes, then there is still something that needs to be solved. If no, then is there a possibility that your DVD player only can play certain DVD media (i.e. DVD+R or DVD-R).

 

I have a friend who's DVD player will not play DVD+R media, only likes DVD-R, so I have to be sure when I make a DVD for him I use DVD-R media.

 

Just a suggestion.

Yes, mine only plays DVD+R, and that is always what I record on. This whole problem just developed this week when I could not copy DVD to DVD which I got fixed by clicking on the repair button in Add/Remove Programs. Now that it records, it won't finalize even though I chose the command for it to make the DVD available to be played on other equipment. I'm wondering if I should totally remove the Roxio Easy Media Creator Home from my computer and then reinstall it.

I think I'm missing something.

 

If you're copying a finalized DVD, your copied DVD should be finalized. I've never had to 'finalize' a finalized homemade DVD that I copied.

 

I'm wondering if something else is going on. Have you changed the 'brand' of DVD that you're using?

 

Could something else be interferring with the 'write' process? Have you checked recently for spyware and defragmented your hard drive?

Your hilighted comment sounds like the eject option using the Drag To Disc program. To copy a DVD you should be using the Disc Copier program. Disc Copier has no option to finalize it, it's automatic.

I'm afraid I've not been too clear. Let me start over. Totally disregard anything I said about the Drag to Disc because I did get two different items mixed up. I did make a copy using the Disc Copier program and when it finished, it ejected the disc. Then when I tried to play it on my other DVD players, they would not recognize it. I have two DVD Players, one is older and plays only +R and the other is newer and plays both + and -. In the past, when I made copies of DVD's using the Disc Copier Program, they would always play on my other players.

I have checked for spyware, but I have not defragmented this week, so I will do that now.

If you have used Disc Copier to copy a playable dvd, and it ran to conclusion without giving you any error messages, your created dvd should play just fine.

The only time I've gotten unplayable dvd's from Disc Copier has been when the program gave me an error message of some type (usually a "problem copying file" type message). When the completed dvd was ejected and you closed the window that said "completed successfully" - was there any type error message sitting behind that window on your screen? That is where a problem error message will display.

No: When the recording is completed and it says Finished, then ejects. I can put it right back in and play it on my computer, but it will not play on my other set top players. It's such a mystery to me, because it has worked several times correctly in the past. It's just this last week I had the problem. I got the first problem corrected that I mentioned in this original posting, but the 2nd problem then developed where it won't play on other players.

Cdanteek, please forgive me. Your picture on the monitor is so ugly, I get scared everytime I look at it. As you probably realize, I am computer illiterate. I have looked at everything in my hard drive, files, and documents and cannot pull up anything like DVDINFOPro. I just don't know how to search for that information. Please help one more time, and I won't ask again.

"erned" I have Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 and it has always worked fine

 

In version EMC 7.5 under programs or tools DVDInfo Pro should be there!

 

Cdanteek, please forgive me. Your picture on the monitor is so ugly, I get scared everytime I look at it.

 

Thanks for the compliment. might I suggest watching the movie where the avatar comes from?

 

Stanley Kubrick The Shining 1980 with Jack and Shelly, a must see movie!

OK, I don't have EMC 7.5, so I can't say EXACTLY where it is in the program. I would suspect you can find it on the tools menu.

 

However, unless the others settle down and give the specifics, you can also jdownload it (it's a small, free program) from www.dvdinfopro.com - by the time you'd have to renew the free program in 30 days, this should be solved.

I'll try. It will be a few days before I get to town. In the mean time, I copied to a -RW, and it played back on my computer, but like the previous +R, it would not play on my set top players. It was a Maxell brand.
