Easy Cd Creator 5 And 64 Bit System

Recommended Posts

Before I purchase a new Dell 64 bit computer, I would like to know if my "easy cd creator 5" will work with it. I now have a Dell T3500 32 bit system, with both win XP and win7 (on 4th hard drive). My sound stream even works on win7. I have Roxio 5, 7.5, 2009, 2011, and I still only use "easy cd creator 5". Like it best, and will not give it up for a 64 bit computer. Anyone know about this??

Thanks,

jivenet

Easy CD 5, 7.5 is compatible with Windows XP, C2009 compatible with windows XP & Vista, C2011 compatible with XP, Vista & W-7.

 

If it works fine, it probably will break, or has broke something in one version you have installed.

 

Easy CD 5 And C2012 are x32 bit apps and when installed on a x64 OS end up in the C:\Program Files (x86) folder.

 

Your on your own running software that is not support on a different OS! Besides newer versions on Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player break Easy CD 5 and Easy Media Creator 7, 7.5, C2009.

YOUR ABOVE STATEMENT IS CONFUSING!

Ahhh... What do you mean by "break"? Do you mean that it doesn't work? Dell tech support can only tell me that "some" 32 bit app's work, and some don't. My ECD 5, and ECD 2009 work just fine on win7. Win XP Pro will not be supported after a couple of years, so I'm trying to use Win7 more. I'll be used to it about the time they come out with a new OS. :(

 

The following applications are 64 bit compliant:

•Creator 2009, 2010, 2011

•WinOnCD 2009, 2010, 2011

•Easy Media Creator 8 and higher (BackUp MyPC and DVDinfo not compatible)

•DVDit 6 and higher

•MyDVD 8 and higher

•RecordNow 8 and higher

•DLA (bundled versions only)

•Cineplayer 3.2 and 3.2 Surround

Even so, could it work without crashing??

Bottom line ?

 

The programs are all 32 bit and work as such on a 64 bit computer. There are VERY few true 64 bit applications. I know of only one other for Video Editing that is a pro-sumer program.

 

If you can get those programs working on W7, then all the best to you. Just know that someday they will not work and there is no way of fixing them. Perhaps only certain applications will quit working. If you are not using them, then you won't notice that they are broken (won't load/run/ etc)

Thanks.... If I decided to go with a 64 bit sys, I'll keep an old 32 bit computer hanging in the closet, just incase... :)

Jivenet,

 

When you mix both ECDC 5 and Creator 2009 together in Windows 7 you'll find that ECDC 5 leans heavily on the Creator 2009 burning engine to get any functionality at all. The ECDC 5 burning engine won't work at all by itself because of driver conflicts. If you don't believe me, try ECDC 5 in a clean Windows 7.

 

If you want to use the Creator burn engine with the ECDC 5 GUI I would suggest you try coupling your Creator 2011 rather than your C2009, with ECDC 5.

 

Remember though, in Windows 7 32-bit there are no guarantees for ECDC 5. In 64-bit Windows there are even less.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thanks. I guess that's that! I wish Roxio 20XX was as user friendly as ECDC 5 was.
