File Not Found Error -- Cd Creation


Syrallas

Question

Hi there,

Easy creator 10, deluxe version running normally on DVD creation aspects of program, but when I

try to create a music cd, I immediately get a "File not found" error asking for a .png file (starts with collage.png) Cancelling just brings on a host of other "png" files not found. You are, however, given the option to locate the missing file(s).

 

Does anyone know where the above-type files on the install disc itself is located, so I can browse the prompt to the missing file(s)? Repair option didn't help, and if I could avoid a clean install that would be preferable.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Wow, I had not even considered that! I figured for sure it was the program trying to load a plug-in or something like that which did not make it onto my pc during the install.

 

I'm at work now, but will explore this when I get home.

 

Thanks, :) and I'll let you know.

If I am reading Tom correctly, it is not when he tries to add a file but when he starts the program.

 

Tom: something else we need to know. Are you using Audio CD from the Home program or Music Disc Creator???

 

These are 2 completely different programs. Quick test, try the other one…

 

Also detail the step by step to get there as well as the full text of the error message. – There are 9 Collage_xxx.png files but absolutely nothing called "Collage.png".

Jim is correct -- its when I first double click the icon to get the program to run. Unfortunately, I can't get any more specific until I get home so it'll be a few hours. I do recall a whole series -- at least 12 -- of files not found. I can right-click the error message box and close it, but neither OK nor cancel will get rid of it.

 

I'll let you know exactly which program I am using when this error message happens when I get home. I will say this - I was trying to create a file for use as background music (?.wav) for a MyDVD project I'm working on when it happened.

 

If only I could install this program on my work PC ....

OK, here is some additional info.:

 

When I open up "Music Disc Creator", it says:

 

File Not Found

 

Please Enter the Path to the Requested File

 

Collage_Top.png

 

Options are OK Cancel, as well as a button that does not say browse, but instead has an elipse (...). When the ... button is clicked, the program defaults to the following folder:

roxio/Music Disc Creator, with the "File Name Box" automatically filled in with "Collage_Top.png" , and the "Files of Type" box automatically filled in with "Track Art"

(BTW: no quotation marks in any of the boxes, I'm just putting them in here.)

 

 

When "cancel" is hit, you get the following, other, missing files:

Collage_PlayAll.png

Collage_shuffle.png

Collage_Browse.png

Collage_Top.png (again....)

Collage_Previous.png

Collage_Forward.png

Collage_Up.png

Collage_Home.png

Collage_Shuffle.png (again ....)

Collage_PlayAll.png

Collage_Track.png

Collage_Top.png

Collage_Previous.png

Collage_Forward.png

Collage_Up.png

Collage_Home.png and then ...

Graffiti_Top.png

 

... and then a whole bunch of "Graffiti_xxx.png" files, followed by: Pastels_xxx.png; SuperStar_xxx.png; and Western_xxx.png.

 

Once the "Western" series is "canceled" through, the "Roxio Music Creator - Untitled Project" screen opens up.

 

So, to me, a mere rookie, it seems like its looking for a Roxio based file or something.

 

Help! :blink:

:) Problem solved.

 

The above suggestions worked -- when I clicked on the "roxio content 10.msi" folder in the setup disc, I chose the repair option and no error messages when I opened the program! :rolleyes:

 

Thanks again to all who helped.

That seems to do the trick !

 

Is there anywhere I can drag and drop these folders into a specific folder in the program that is on my C: drive, or do I just point at each of the files individually (once you point it to the missing file, it opens the "Roxio Music Creator - Untitled Project" screen; rather than allow you to point it to the other missing files.

 

If I need to do it for all, that's fine -- you've been a big help -- but I didn't know if I could highlight the collage, graffiti, etc. files and drop it into an appropriate Roxio folder on my c: drive ....

 

Thanks again! :)

High fives to you. I am glad you are up and running with the Content.

Did you actually install the Content? If not, you need to.

 

 

I'm not clear how I do that. When I browse to the file on the install disc that my program says is missing , I highlight the appropriate item on the install disc, click open & then OK, & I would think it would have permanently copied the file to my PC, but sadly, when I re-open the program, the exact same file, Collage_Top.png, is still "not found," even though its the precise path that I just pointed it to. :huh:

 

If there is a way to copy (say, using windows explorer) from the install disc to some sub-folder in the roxio folder, I'd give that a try, because pointing to it does not seem to work. :mellow:

 

The crazy thing is that it looks like these things are just images or something that I don't need, and when I cancel them all away, the program actually works fine. Its just that who the heck wants to cancel 40 or so times to start working on a project?

You can't "install" a single file from the Content disc - you have to install the whole package. Run the Content setup.exe program.

So basically re-install the program w/o getting rid of what's already on my computer, and assume that this time it will copy the missing files?

 

Do you have 2 CDs: a program disc and a content disc? If yes, did you ever install the Content disc?

 

Or do you only have a DVD labelled "Program & Content"?

I only have one disc which I purchased as a "backup" in conjunction with an online download version of 10.0 which was an upgrade from the 9.0 pre-installed on my HP computer.

Browse that disc for the Content folder. In that Content folder will be either a setup.exe file or setup.msi file. Click on the setup file, if it is there. If not, click on the .msi file.

I remember looking for an .exe file in various folders last night and I didn't see one... but, I will look for either a setup.exe file or setup.msi file later today in the disc (I don't have the disc w/ me at work) and report back.

 

I appreciate everyone taking time to try and help me out on this matter.

I don't think there is a setup.msi! look for a "Roxio Content 10.msi" file in the EMC 10 Content folder
