Okay, I have Roxio Creator 2012 and am having trouble saving.  The problem occurs when I try to save a project in Music Disc Creator.  So, say I add a music file 5 minutes in length then cut it down to 3 minutes in the Quick Sound Editor.  Everything works as it should but when I save and reopen the project file all the changes I've made in Quick Sound Editor are gone.  I understand I have to export the edited music to create a new music file but shouldnt this information still be saved in the project file so I can continue to edit my projects at later times?  I thought the DMSA project file was suppose to contain this info in addition to the paths to the original music files.

TIA
John

No - you have to save BOTH. The dmsa file does as you said point to the file - but it also needs a file to point TO ;)
If it ain't broke, fiddle with it until it breaks, then fiddle with it until you get it fixed

Honestly, I dont understand why the software cant save these changes.  It would be like if I created a program to write computer software but I couldn't save the raw data and could only compile what I've worked on so far.  There must be a way to save that raw data before it's exported in a music file.  If there isn't Roxio needs to add such a feature otherwise my $70 software is about to become $70 worth of trash.

I just ran a test and agree with you 110%!

When you perform an "edit" and save a Project, you expect the "edit" to be intact next time you open the Project! :o

I'll see that it gets reported but I am guessing it has been this way for a long, long time and no one ever drew attention to it.

Thanks for describing the problem in a way I couldn't.  I hope this gets resolved because the software works great beyond this bug.
