Roxio Creator 8.2 Xe


Carmen7558

Question

I have a Roxio CD that I used on my old XP notebook. I just got a new notebook running Vista Home Premium. The CD that I have just says "Roxio Creator 8.2 XE with CinePlayer. I think I may also have Easy Media Creator version . I don't burn CD's or DVD's very much but I occasionallly do. Mostly I have been using flash drives. Does anyone know if the CD I have will work on Vista Home Premium? I really don't have the funds at this time to purchase software. That will come after I pay off the new notebook (12 months :( I hope. I already had a Norton subscription and Spysweeper that works on the Vista notebook. I may have to look at some shareware or freeware until I can afford it. I am retired and disabled and the computer is my main source of enjoyment.

 

If anyone knows I would greatly appreciate it. I had a bad experience installing Windows Plus for XP but got that handled okay, however I don't dare install anything until I check it out.

 

Thanks for any help/guidance,

 

Carmen

Hmm ... well, hopefully Vista has something stable there in their "floppy-like" capability, but if it turns out they don't we can call on you, Brendon, to assure people they haven't lost their data. I don't plan to downgrade to Vista.

 

Perhaps OP is correct that he needs a third-party burning program.

Have you actually upgraded to XP yet?? Last I heard you were refusing to move from Windows 2000?

Vista's default method of writing discs is its Live File System which acts "as if the disc were a floppy disk or USB flash drive" but apart from all the above it also has Windows DVD Maker if you want to burn DVD-Video discs.

 

There's an extensive help system in Vista if you look for help on 'burn discs'.

Why should he need a third-party burning program? What is wrong with EMC 9.1 or 10?

 

Lynn shouldn't be recommending a third-party program and you shouldn't be endorsing that, when Roxio programs should do the job nicely.

If a guru can't recommend Roxio programs because she hasn't the experience. then she is out of her depth both in this forum and those for higher versions.

Roxio is a third-party program. Anything that the Operating System won't do on its own is a third-party program.

Come off it Lyn. You're digging the hole deeper while you're in it.

 

The OP said "I may have to look at some shareware or freeware until I can afford it."

You said "Perhaps OP is correct that he needs a third-party burning program."

 

And now you're trying to say you were recommending Roxio programs? :blink:

Where did I mention/endorse a third-party program? My post was in reference to Lynn's first post about Vista being able to burn CD's and DVD's. :huh: I believe that you knew that, Brendon.
