gaale Posted January 4, 2008 Report Share Posted January 4, 2008 I have run ECDC5P (updated to 22.214.171.124) on my ‘new’ Dell (Dimension E510, Win XP-MediaCenter 2002SP2) for about a year; and have for years have relied on DirectCD with CDRW discs for my archiving. The computer came with Sonic DLA & RecordNow (Sonic DigitalMedia LE v. 7-Build 2.0.97a) and Yahoo!Musicmatch Jukebox (10.10.009Dell) installed, none of which I use. Windows Media Player (10) is in the Start>Programs list, but I have never been able to open it. I recently installed DAK Wave and MP3 Editor (v.4.2b) and the software for my MP3 player (ZEN NanoPlus/Creative MusicSource (3.20.57 – with CD burn application) and apparently it’s all too much. Rewritable DirectCD formatted discs have become unreliable/unreadable. I can no longer format a disc with DirectCD. I hardly dare access any of my discs as now even a CDR disc (made with DataCDProject) won’t properly copy files to my MP3 player (though the files from the disc will play in Creative Music Source). Only now that I’m having these problems have I come to the forum for advice and see that Direct CD has a history of being ‘touchy.’ If I had only known five years ago what I learned today … I repent, I repent … Doing an uninstall through Add/Remove programs and re-installing (no reboot until both patches were run) did not solve the problem. I see you folks recommend roxizap. The roxio kb page no longer gives any actual instructions for its use. I gather that it will also remove the Sonic DLA and RecordNow? Do you recommend roxizap over following the ‘clean uninstall’ procedures roxio now recommends? (I don’t do registry editing) Should I uninstall ALL the other mentioned programs before attempting to un/re-install ECDC5? I would like, if possible, to stabilize the system enough to safely get files off the old DirectCD discs and on to CDR discs. I would appreaciate any advice you can offer. Many thank yous!
