Roxio - Creator Basic v.9

Question

I recently bought a new computer with Windows Vista Home Basic installed. It only has one optical drive: TSST CD/DVDW TS-H652M ATA (described on the face plate, as "LightScribe DVD-Writer / CD-Writer). The installed software is: Roxio - Creator Basic v.9 - The folders on my system show up as:

Roxio - Creator Audio

Roxio - Creator Basic v9

Roxio - Creator Copy

Roxio - Creator Data

Roxio - Creator EasyArchive

Roxio - Creator Tools

Roxio - Express Labeler 3

 

I miss not having 2 optical drives and was intending on cannabalizing one of my two Win98SE systems for parts (CDRW/DVDROM and, maybe, the floppy drive) for installation in my new Vista system.

 

Question: If I install a 'Lite-On Combo SOHC-5232K (CDRW/DVDROM) drive' in the Vista system will it work with Roxio - Creator Basic 9?

I don't have a clue what "Roxio - Creator Basic 9" is!

 

It should work just fine.

The products are:

 

Roxio Easy media creator 9 Standard

Roxio Easy media creator 9 LE (OEM Dell Version)

Roxio Easy media creator 9 XE (OEM Release version for new hardware ie: new dvd drive)

Roxio Easy media creator 9 Deluxe (With Dazzel device)

 

Roxio Easy media creator 9.1 Standard (Vista Certified ) Unknown ETA

Roxio Easy media creator 9.1 Deluxe (Vista Certified ) Unknown ETA

 

(any other marketing or warez listings or EBay saying 9.5 ect is uncorrect)

Greetings,

 

I'm not too sure what's going on here; but, the Roxio software I have is definitely "Roxio Creator Basic v.9'.

 

I copied the following from the Help Menu 'About This Software':

 

Roxio Creator Basic v9

Version:

Build: ,

Serial Number: XXXXXXXXX

Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2006

 

Module Name: PX Engine

If it matters at all, the software came bundled with my new HP Compaq Presario SR2150NX desktop (OS is Windows Vista).

 

I am not overly confident with my 'newbie' skills at installing hardware and just wanted to be sure that this version is compatible with my Lite-On Combo drive before I start pulling my computer apart. :unsure:

 

Thanks

 

Edited to get rid of serial number.

You must have gotten that from Home and most of us are not familiar with those numbers. Still, looking at my Home application they are the same within a dot or 2.

 

In answer to your base question, all optical drives are the same. Windows installs a generic driver for them and they work.

 

Your old drive should not be a problem provided that Vista correctly recognizes it. Burning software relies on the OS to recognize a burner.

Hi James,

 

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my enquiry.

 

I must ask, however (please excuse my ignorance); but, what does your reference to "home" mean??

The icon on your desktop that you clicked on. Those are Sonic numbers. Open Creator Classic, and post the build number you see under CC help.

Hello to All,

 

I really appeciate everyone's input...thank you for taking the time. However, I guess it's time to call it quits for the time being. I have only had this Vista system for less than a week and I have no idea where to look for what I'm looking for. I can't find any files anywhere similar to Creator Classic and if it wasn't for an old program I have (Belarc Advisor), I would not even have found where my Roxio Creator Basic v.9 files were located. There was no icon for such on the desktop and they do not show up in the Program Files folder as I would have thought they should. They are tucked way inside the Common Files folder within the Program Files folder.

 

Someday I will bite the bullet and see if I can figure out how to intall my Lite-On CDRW/DVD-ROM Combo but it seems that I have come across other more important matters to resolve (my external v.92 modem that I was using with my Win98SE system doesn't work with Vista; my digital camera software doesn't work with Vista; my etc., etc., etc. doesn't work with Vista).

 

God Love my Hubby for wanting to buy me a new computer; but, he is totally computer illiterate and doesn't know what he was getting ME into :(

 

I suppose the best advice I can give (and take) is to learn to operate what you have before you start throwing other variables into the mix. I have a good supply of CDRW's & DVD-RW's to play with and a burning software program that no one knows about; so, LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!! :lol:

 

Many thanks to all.
