Roxio Locks up CPU at 100%, Above Normal thread priority


aedwill

Recommended Posts

Well, Roxio was working for a month in a row, I knew something had to go wrong. Now when I try to use creator classic cpu pegs to 100%, cclassic.exe thread priority jumps to Above Normal on Windows 2003 and nothing happens.

 

When I try to record my family images to DVD using drag to disk, half of the disk is burned then D2D reports the drive is read only.

 

Anyone having similar issues or know of a solution besides uninstalling?

 

Thanks.

You haven't said what you plan to do with this Drag2Disc DVD. If the idea is that it will play in Video players, it WON'T. What Packet-Writing programs like Drag2Disc, Nero's InCD, Sonic's DLA, etc, are good for is permantly LOSING the data. They can be used to move data from one computer to another when the original is safely on the first computer, but with Flash drives (aka Jump / Pen / Thumb / Keychain drives) and external Hard Drives so inexpensvie, there isn't any reason to do that anymore.

 

If you have a Rainier capable burner, it is probably formatting the disc as it goes, which would indeed take a chunk of resources. While we are at it, what are the specs for your computer - how much memory, how much processor power (MHz or GHz)? And what is your Operating System - this is the only Version that can do Video work on systems older than WinXP SP1 or Win2000 SP4, so that may also be part of the resource question. And working with Video IS resource intensive.

 

If the idea is to make DVDs that are playable on a DVD player, you need to be using DVD Builder. And since DVDs are based on TIME, be aware you can only put about 1 hour in a Best Quality DVD, or a little less than 1 1/2 hours on a Good Quality disc (which is not really all that good - splitting it into two DVDs is a better idea). EMC/DVDC 6 is the earliest Roxio product that could do Videos, and is pretty basic. And using DVD Builder will probably as much or more of a resource hog than Drag2Disc.

You should also take note that none of the Roxio suites are supported on a Server OS (you did say you were running Windows 2003)

 

Please follow the link below where Roxio Knowledgebase states about testing Roxio version 5 against Windows 2000/2003 server.

I installed Roxio version 6 on Windows 2003 Server and successfully burned CD/DVD.

And you drag out a year+ old thread to cite a KB article about a version that doesn't have anything to do with this version, nor does it state that support exists…

 

V5 has been out of production for 5 years and V6 ceased 4 years ago.

 

What point are you trying to make?
