Can't Burn Audio CDs Anymore



Hello All:


Yesterday, it was necessary to update the BIOS on my Dell 8400 from ver. AO3 to AO9 - further, I had to have a service tech install a new power supply for my box. Today I tried to burn an audio cd for my wife (have done so before), but after adding 9 titles to the playlist, when I hit the BURN button, I got the message that DEP had shut down the program (I'm running XP w/SP2). I then added CD Creator (All the Roxio programs are now checked, btw) to the list of "allowed" programs, rebooted, and attempted to burn the CD - now, I just keep getting the message that Roxio has encountered a problem and the program shuts down.


I have even tried a system restore to see if that would roll back the old BIOS (I'm no computer guru - apparently that won't revert back to the old BIOS version) -


I AM able to burn data DVDs, and I can still burn audio CDs through Windows Media Player. Can't figure out what the problem is....


Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

Try the PxEngine fix: Here


But with the rollback and other steps, you may have to do a Clean Install: Here


Thanks for your response James - I'll give 'er a try - also, fyi, I found another post in the archives re using Music Disc Creator - I tried it that way, and it does work for me - finally, it may have something to do with IE7 (that I have), also discussed in these archives - can't remember if I've burned since installing it over IE6, though....

With all of the trashing around you have done, change BIOS, use RollBacks to try to fix something that it cannot possibly fix and no telling what else, frankly I find the whole thing a little scary!!!


I strongly recommend you stop looking for a simple solution and just do the clean install…
