I love the drag-and-drop feature that Easy CD Creator 5 has, it works great on XP on my desktop - I can use a CD like a floppy.

Now, I'd like to do the same on my new Toshiba Portege R705-P35.
The software installs no problem in both WinXP and Win7 that I run on the laptop, but in both I have en error in sys.tray saying "no supported drives" or something like that.

The CD drive that I have on the laptop describes as follows:
"Fixed Optical Disk Drive
• DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats
o Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x),
CD-RW (10x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (8x), DVD-R DL (4X),
DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (8x), DVD+R DL (4x), DVD+RW (4x),
DVD-RAM (3x)"

I can read a DirectCD formatted CD no problem, in both installs, just can't drag and drop, or delete anything.

Anything I can do about it? The older software apparently does not recognize the new hardware. Any updates?

thank you!

Ma-fia,

I think the version from ECDC5 is too old, but I have Drag-to-Disc from Easy Media Creator 9 working fine with my drives in both XP and Windows 7. Drag to Disc has been dropped by Roxio, so there isn't any later version to be found.

I've sent you a Private Message with some tips. Please click on "Messenger" at the top right side of the page to receive the message.
