No Recorders Or Wont Initailize

I'm trying to get some CD software my school has provided me for a class. However, I recieved these files as CD Images (.iso). I'm trying to use Easy CD & DVD to burn the images to a CD, however I cannot seem to get it to do anything. I double click on the iso to start Creator Classic and it just gives me "Creator Classic could not initialize properly. Close a few programs and restart Creator Classic." or if I try to open Creator Classic first and get it to write the file itself with the program, I get "There are no supported recorders availalbe. Make sure your recorder is powered on and all cables are connected."

 

For the first, I've tried shutting down all programs that were not needed, no change in the situation. For the second, i've done nearly everything, I checked my harddrive and CD writter drive connections and drivers, nothing seems to be wrong.

 

I run this on a WIndows XP Pro.

It could be that the files are not valid. Not every ISO file is created equally.

 

If you can burn OK with other projects, the source files start looking very suspicious.

Hi,

 

:) james_hardin I don't agree with your ISO point. I download Fedora Core 5 ISOs and the mdchecksum is correct and I'm getting the same error on all 5 discs.

 

Please run this as a test and you see what I mean.

 

Thanks,

Pierre

 

You may not agree, but as you stated, it doesn't work…

 

There is some incompatibility with the program they use as many others have reported having trouble burning their ISO's.

 

Check their site and see what they recommend.

So what are you actually saying dude..have you had the same issue with these ISOs and Roxio?

From your first post, where when you go to start ECDC first, and it says there are no recorders available, what CD/DVD Recorder do you have? What version of Windows are you using? Have you ever successfully used ECDC 6 on your system? Is it an OEM version (supplied with a drive or system) or did you purchase it separately?

 

It sounds to me more like a basic problem with the ECDC 6 installation and you may want to try uninstalling it, running Roxizap, and reinstalling to see if that solves the problem.

 

Let us know.

Dave: I don't think pierrulud is releated to marksman21…

 

Pierre: I have not tried to burn any ISO's beyond the one I create.

 

However many folks have reported trouble getting the ones from Linux suppliers to work.

 

Try a Google search for ISO Burn. It should turn up some free programs that may be more tolerant of ISO files that don't follow the strict standards that Roxio uses.
