I have tried to read through your forums, but haven't seen a thread for this particular problem. If I've missed one, I'd be most appreciative if someone would guide me in the right direction.
I purchased Roxio Record Now Music Lab 9 some time ago, and have just recently gotten around to setting it up. There doesn't seem to be a reason it won't work on my computer, but, I'm having difficulties.
I run XP.
I can load songs into the Roxio. I can save them as "data", but when it comes to burn the CD in Audio mode, the CD does not "finalize" and it seems to do what I would call "lock up my computer". I have to actually shut down/re-start the computer to get the disc out of the drive. And, when I try to play the disc in a CD player, it states the disc is not "finalized".
I have manually tried to finalize a disc after it's been finished with the "tools" section of Roxio, but to no avail.
Last, I have tried to make an mp3 from the file, and this is when the burner always stops at 71%, and the computer locks up.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better yet, has anyone else had and fixed this problem?
I chose Roxio, because I loved the old Adaptec program with the color coded drag and drop files. However, This is not cutting it, and I am starting to think maybe I need a different program. I mix my music for work and need a simple, easy, and visually timed program like this, but preferrably like the old Adaptec. Any other suggestions out there?
Thanks in advance for any help ya'll can provide.
