Crashing Now, Because Of Mp3s?


Recommended Posts

I bought (a) a new computer and (B) a new CD player for my car that can now play mp3s.

 

I reinstalled Roxio on the computer. Seems OK. (As an aside, the computer came with Roxio 10 but apparently that no longer allows me to mix the songs like I want to -- no "transition editing"!

 

OK, so now when I want to burn a CD, I choose "Audio Data Disc" -- that's correct, isn't it?

 

I also choose "Disc at once" of course to save my mixes.

 

It immediately burns it, says it is done (in a second) and there's nothing on the freaking disc!

 

What am I doing wrong? Any advice is appreciated! (And if I am wrong about Roxio 10, let me know)

Also, if EMC 10 "came with the computer", it is an OEM [Original Equipment Mfgr] Version, which most likely means it does NOT have all the features of the full Version (the kind you buy in a store).

 

That may mean you can't do what you had in mind due to some things not being included.

If you have a new computer it's almost certain that you have Vista as the OS

 

ECD6 will NOT work in Vista

 

No, I specifically told Dell to give me XP! :)

 

Even if it is Vista and V10 you should be able to do transitions if you have Music Disc Creator.If it's like Lynn said then you may not have that but if you do it should do what you're wanting.

 

OK so if I buy the full version of it (10), then it will have Music Disc Creator which allows me to do transitions like I do now in 6?

Yes,you get 2 sets of choices for modification.1 is Fade and the other is Transition.You then get choices for those also.I just mentioned Transition because that's what you asked about.

 

 

thanks. But no ideas as to why Roxio 6 isn't working for me? It says it is recording the very last track and then it says it is finished, and there is nothing written to the disc at all!

Since you have either WinXP or Vista, you should be able to burn a music CD with WinPlayer. Have you tried that?

 

If WinPlayer can't burn a CD either, the suspicion falls on the burner needing either a firmware update or replacement.

 

Also, are you burning the disc, or just testing? If it is set to test only, you would end up with the CD not having been touched.

No... but then I wouldn't be able to use Roxio's mixing capabilities. But I should probably try so I can at least make sure it's not my burner or something... Thanks for the suggestion!

I was able to burn a disc using Roxio DE 10 so I know it's not my burner. Unfortunately, that does not have Music Disc Creator so I couldn't do any mixing.

 

I still can't figure out why my Creator 6 doesn't work though.

 

Is it possible to buy an upgrade of 10 just for the Music Disc Creator so I don't have to purchase the entire thing?

No.

 

 

#$^@; I don't want to pay all that extra money for that one small feature.

 

I wish I could figure out what was wrong with Creator 6. I've had some good times with this program in the past; it's only now that I am trying to burn mp3s that the problem has occurred...

 

Here's what I do:

 

I arrange my playlist.

 

I click on burn disc.

 

When it says "This playlist contains transitions between tracks. Track-At-Once burning would introduce 2 second gaps within these transitions, and has been disabled." I click "OK"

 

I choose "Audio Data Disc" (even though it doesn't say mp3 in its choices)

 

Buffer underun is on, and "include M3U platlist file" is on

 

The correct screen comes up as usual and then the last song on the list zooms past and the message comes up that says "your disc is complete", and at the same time I get a microsoft warning "RxBurn.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." And yes, I did remove it and reinstall it.

 

Does any of this give anyone here a clue as to what is wrong? Is my disc just corrupted or something? Should I just buy a new Creator 6 or will I end up with the same problem?

I think it may be time to clean out everything and reinstall ECD/DVD 6.

 

First a clean uninstall of the OEM V.10 -

Then roxizap out V.6 -

Altho it says V.4 & 5, it also works with 6.

 

Once everything is out of there, a reinstall of V.6 should make it good to go.
