Password Length For Creator Classic


Hiram Hunt

Question

Hello,

When I use the 128 bit encryption option to create

a data disk with Creator Classic, the password dialog

quits showing stars (asterisks) after the eighth

character that I enter for the password. This did not

happen when I used EMC 7. Eight characters is not

enough to get 128 bits for an encryption key (at least

with 8-bit bytes). Why is the program doing this?

Where is this explained in the documentation?

Thanks.

Hmmm.... All the help that I can find in Creator Classic just

says check the 128 bit box and enter the password in both

boxes, which does not address the issue of why it looks like

Creator Classic is only taking 8 characters for a supposed

128 bit encryption. BTW, I am using EMC 9 on Windows XP.

I don't understand your "Help/Encrypt" reply except as a general

recommendation to look for encrypt in the Creator Classic

help files. Is there more to it? Thanks.

It was a general recommendation, is all. I haven't seen other questions on encryption, on these forums, so your best bet may be to contact Roxio, directly.
