Basic Data Recording Problem

Question

I've been able to burn a handful of back-up audio cds in the six months or so since installing the product. Our problem is that the "drag-to-disc" feature seems to have taken control. That is, when we back-up our best photos by saving to a disc in either of two disc drives and then take that disc to another computer which happens to lack Roxio software or has an earlier version, the disc is unrecognized (appears empty) to the second computer.

 

How can we disable Roxio temporarily to back-up MS Office documents or photos just using Windows XP (as we used to)? Is uninstall/re-install Roxio 9 XE the only option?

At the bottom of your screen, click on the Start button, then click on Run. In the text box, type in msconfig. When the next screen comes up, click on the Startup tab, and uncheck the Drag to Disc box. It is lableled DrgtoDsc, or something like that.

 

Then click on Apply, then Ok, to reboot. When Windows boots up, put a check mark, in the box in the lower left part of the nag screen that pops up, then close the box.

Thanks Grandpabruce,

 

I followed your instructions precisely. Msconfig file was not found when logged on as secondary administrator which was bothersome, but when I switched over to primary administrator it was able to "run." I unchecked DrgtoDsc. I wasn't quite sure what you meant by "nag screen," but when it came up I realized you meant the colloquial "nag" (nag, nagging, nagged) and checked the box to stop Configuration. Drag-to-disc is gone from desktop. Presumably, I just go back into configuration and recheck "DrgtoDsc" when I want to use it.

 

I have to get up from computer now, but we'll save to a disc the old way, maybe this evening, thanks to you.

You're welcome. If you want to use Drag to Disc again, you don't have to go back into msconfig. You just click on Drag to Disc, in the Home menu.
