Roxio Cd Creator Changes File Properties

Question

After using the Roxio Creator 2011 while making a Cd Project, the files stored on my hardrive will not copy to my external hardrive after using Cd Creator. It tells me that the properties have been changed and not all properties are there. I never had this issue with any previous Roxio products and cannot figure out why Roxio is changing my stored file's properties. I can copy all files over to my external hardrive except the files used by Roxio. Can anyone give me some advice on this issue?

Do they not copy or do you just get a message that some data will be lost if you copy? That may be meta-data the Roxio attaches to the files for quick find. That information is not required and can safely be deleted when you are copying.

Yes they do copy fine, however it just gives this warning that some of it's properties are missing, Do you wish to proceed? Not word for word as that but it is the idea. Just not sure what it's doing. Just never had this happen to me before.

In msconfig, under Startup, turn off the Roxio hard drive watcher. I think that it is called RoxWatchTray13. Uncheck the box, click Apply, then ok, then reboot your computer and put a check in the nag box that comes up at bootup. You should then eliminate the problem when copying files.

Okay, I will try this tonight when I get home. I noticed the older versions don't have that in the startup tab. I never thought of looking at that! Thanks man! I appreciate it a lot!

That's the metadata that SKNIS spoke about in post #2. Roxio suites have been using that for many versions now.

 

It's not a problem, but the issue has only arisen now because you are copying the files to a hard drive which is formatted in FAT32. [Check the portable drive to confirm it's in FAT32, if you wish.]

 

The metadata attached by Roxio programs can only exist on an NTFS drive, so they are removed by copying the file to a FAT32 drive. It's no big thing because the metadata aren't important.

Okay! Thanks for that information! I was extremely worried about it for some reason. The external HD is fat32 of course. It all makes sense now. Thanks guys for your input!

Sorry to get back to you so late. I have been gone for a couple of days and just got back.

 

You are welcome. Have you tried it, and did it work for you?
