Uninstalled Easy Cd/dvd 6----now Cannot Burn A Single Cd/dvd

I became frusrated after several failed attempts to create CDs and DVDs using the drag to disc utility. What's more I grew tired of the fact that I couldn't even drag and burn files to a blank DVD outside of Roxio without getting a "drive not accesible" error message. So I finally uninstalled Easy CD and DVD creator 6 from my xp laptop.

I first uninstalled using the add/remove programs utility in windows then RoxioZap. When I restarted my computer and tried to back up some files, to my surprise I couldn't copy a single file to any DVD Rs I entered into the DVD-RW drive. Windows keeps saying Not only that, but I cannot burn CDs. In fact, when I inserted an ordinary audio CD Itunes informed me that I would have to reinstall the program because the registry entries needed to copy/burn CDs was missing.

I don't know the extent of the problem. It looks like I need to reinstall some drivers/registry entries to be able to burn CDs and DVDs once again. And I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for my DVD-RW drive but that didn't help.

Has anyone any idea of how to solve this problem?

Thanks but sadly the steps didn't work.

I may just have to install the program again. I still don't know why DVDs and CDs I burn through drag to disc are only readable on PCs. Yes, even after I specify I want them in iso the discs just eject early without warning.

Thanks Roxio :)

If you are formatting the disc and using Drag2Disc, you are NOT creating DVDs and CDs.

 

For the RELIABLE programs, using Classic Creator, to create Video DVDs and Audio CDs recognized elsewhere, use a BLANK blank, directly out of hte package or off the spindle.

 

And if you want to KEEP data, NEVER format the disc.

 

Basicly, Packet-Writing was created for temporary storage, say, if you are making a web page and want a backup as you go.

 

For the purposes it sounds like you want, take all those formatted discs and carefully put them somewhere else, such as the trashcan. If you have any data you want to keep, put it back on the Hard Drive so you can burn it to a CD or DVD using Classic Creator.

It's now the case that neither classic nor drag to disc will recognize the blank DVD-Rs I insert. They are read as blank disc with 0 bytes of spave available. Same happens when I try to burn disc using the windows dvd/cd burner wizard.

XP has no ability to burn a DVD, so no matter what you do that is never going to happen…

 

You have not listed any specs for your PC, Burner, or version of ECDC6. Without that it is just a guess.

 

Along with that, go into Device Manager (Win-Pause/Break, Hardware tab) and expand your DVD/CD-ROM drives listing. Any errors indicated there?
