ok this is what I know at this point! I took the trouble to hook up my old computer as slow as it is I might point out. I opened the Roxio on it, used the same brand cd, and the same songs. It works flawlessly, so I either figure out what is up with this new system, or take the long way around the barn and hook up the old computer and transfer just the project I wanna do to it. If this ends up being the case I wasted money buying the new software
thanks to everyone who tried to help!
