My Case With Roxio

Question

Hello,

 

I have Creator 9 and I used to make DVD music. I used to go to Roxio Creator 9 Home, and under Audio, select "Jukebox Disc". It did not take more than 10 minutes to make a DVD music disc. Recently out of blue sky the program goes through the whole process and way at the end it gives me a message "There was a problem writing to the disc. You can try again…". I have wasted so many DVD disks hoping that this time it will go through. I have been using the same brand of DVD, the same kind of music with no problem.

I followed all the recommendation of Roxio with no success.

I did reformat my hard drive thinking that there might be some conflict in all the programs that I have on my laptop. I installed Roxio 9 again, and guess what the same problem still alive.

I went and purchased Roxio 2009 and started to use it by creating DVD disc music. Creator 2009 does take more than an hour to do what Creator 9 did in just 10 minutes. The finished DVD disc does not look the same that I used to do it with Roxio 9. I like the one the Roxio 9 makes; it is simple and plays on all my DVD players. The one from Roxio 2009 does not play in some DVD players and also takes a long time for the DVD players to download it and play it.

I deeply appreciate your kind help.

I am using Window XP pro and the DVD brand is Fujifilm DVD+R

 

Thank you so much.

It actually sounds like a media problem that started before you bought 2009???

 

Why don't you buy a couple of DVD RW discs that are reusable to experiment with?

 

I would also stick to quality brands like Verbatim to minimize trouble.

 

I don't do enough Audio to advise on the programs but others here may be able to give you some tips.

Making a DVD music disc and making a Jukebox disc are 2 different things.

When you make a Jukebox disc you are making an mp3 disc.That should only take as long as it takes to write the mp3's to disc and create the playlist.

When you make a DVD Music disc you are really creating a video disc with only audio and some menus.The audio has to be converted to your selected format and the menus have to be rendered.This all takes considerably more time.

 

If you want to basically create a Jukebox disc in C2009 go to the Home page,Audio,choose Create Music Disc Projects and when Music Disc Creator opens choose MP3/WMA as the Project type.

Thank you so much for your help. Now I do not know what to do. I have both Creator 9 and Creator 2009. Creator 9 is already installed on my PC. I just want to make a Jukebox, so do you recommend for me to go to 2009 since 9 is not working? How long does it take for 2009 to make a Jukebox disc? Do I have to uninstall the 9 first before I install 2009?

Again thanks and I deeply appreciate your help.

Before doing anything else, I'd suggest you try writing a straight Data DVD using Creator Classic. I'm guessing your drive may be going bad, unless as was already suggested, you have some bad media. If you can't get your drive to write a straight Data DVD, and it fails with a similar error, then it's quite possible the drive itself has failed. Try some other media to ensure it's not a bad media issue too.

 

I would try this before installing Creator 2009.

 

Hope that helps!

I was kinda thinking that also Dave but decided to leave that for later.Problem is they said they were able to make a DVD Music Disc in C2009.

 

1)You shouldn't have to uninstall v9 but if it's broken then it won't hurt.

 

2)How long C2009 will take to make a DVD is hard to say.Since it's just mp3's and that is just like writing a data disc then it all depends on how full the disc will be and the speed the disc is burned at.

 

It may just be like Dave said though and the drive is on it's way to drive heaven.

Do as he suggests and just try writing a data disc and see what happens since writing mp3's is basically the same thing.

Ah, yes, missed that. At that point, it's possible that something is conflicting between the two versions.

Hello,

 

Here is the latest and the greatest on my story with Roxio.

 

1. I installed Creator 2009 on my laptop which already has Creator 9.

2. I went to Office Depot and got TDK DVD-R. I tried on both Creator 9 and Creator 2009. To my surprise both version recorded fine and finish the music disc. Here is the scope. My Sony and Pioneer cannot play the disc.

3. I did have an HP DVD+R and Roxio gave me the old message that there was a problem. So this DVD disc got wasted.

4. I went to the store and purchased Maxell DVD-R. Roxio 2009 finished recording with success. My DVD players cannot play them.

 

NOW, what am I suppose to do?

 

Thank you so much for your help.

I notice in your original post you said you were using Fuji DVD+R discs, and now you've purchased TDK DVD-R discs. I have a Sony player that's somewhat particular, it prefers DVD+R discs to the DVD-R discs. Interestingly, it's the higher priced players that tend to be more particular about what they'll play. My $30 Magnavox player will play most anything I put in it.

 

So, I'd try a couple types of DVD+R discs.

 

Also, do the discs play okay in your PCs?

No, the discs + or - do not play on my PC. I tried to use the DVD disk for data and my pc can't open them. I have an HP ZD8000 notebook. On HP web site they have a program to test the health of the pc and to do diagnostic to hardware on the pc. I did that for the CDRom and it passed.

So I do not know what else to do. May be I need to look for a very tall buiilding in the town I live in.

Thanks.

Here is the error message I receive when trying to burn an audio or data CD:

 

 

There was a problem writing to the disc. You can try again by clicking the Retry button. You will need another blank disc ready.

 

Show Advanced Info

 

Sense:00 ASC:00 ASCQ:00 (Command 00)

Px.dll: 4.10.28.500

PxAFS.DLL: 4.8.39.500

PxSFS.DLL: 4.8.39.500

PxWave.dll: 4.10.28.500

pxwma.dll: 1,0,0,3

 

 

 

 

Does anybody else receive this message. I have tried using brand new Verbatim, Sony, and Imation CDs without any luck. I can burn CDs with Windows Media Player, Apples Itunes, Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 & 10. Creator 2009 just won't burn an audio or data CD for me.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

 

I do have the same problem and I have tried every thing with no success. You can see my case in "My story with Roxio" on this forum.

Please let know if you find any solution.

Good luck.

Can you open any discs on your system, data audio or video?

Testing a CD with software isn't really very accurate as it doesn't do a full write test (it isn't designed to). It's like the valve (tube) testers that every TV workshop used to have - most times they said the valve was 'good' when it failed once it went into the equipment. The tests are passive and not really related to working stress.

 

The fact that you were able to get the software to burn on another machine would indicate that there is a drive problem - bear in mind that doing a 'CD' test doesn't test DVD - that's a different laser and also the fact that a drive can read a disc doesn't mean that it can successfully write to one

Yes I can open a system disc. I think my dvd rom can read but cant record. Is this possible?

What's your definition of a "system disc"?

 

And yes, it's completely likely that your DVD-ROM drive can read but can't record, thus ROM - Read Only Memory.

 

To be more specific, can you see anything on any discs you put into your DVD Writer. That's the drive for which we're trying to determine whether or not there's a problem. If you put in a commercially written DVD and open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer), do you see any files listed for that drive?

I can install programs that comes on CD and DVD like office 2007, Roxio 2009. Movies dvd also works.

Thanks for helping.

Hello and thanks to all of you who took a time to look at my case. Here is the latest that make me more confused.

 

1. Creator 2009 did not record for me Jukebox music. I used Verbatim DVD+R. It went through the whole process and gives me an error message "Write error-Medium error (click for more info)". When I click for more info there is a lot of stuff that I do not understand.

2. Creator 2009 burn Jukebox music on Philips CD-R with no problem, and I can play it on my note book. It does play on my Sony DVD player and also plays on my note book.

3. Creator2009 did burn successfully a DVD music using Verbatim DVD+R. It plays on both my note book and sonny DVD player.

4. Creator 2009 burn some my data successfully on Philips CD-R. I can see the content of the disc on my note book.

 

Now, why if does not burn a music disc on Verbatim DVD+R disc.

 

So do you think my CD/DVDW ROM is working fine?

 

What do you think after all this long trip?

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Your posts are very confusing. You talk about "jukebox music", then a "DVD music" and also a "music disc".

 

In post #3 you state you successfully burned a DVD music DVD that plays. Later you state that "does not burn a music disc on Verbatim DVD+R disc." :blink:

 

Could you please lists step-by-step exactly what you are doing when you try to burn a "jukebox music" using the Verbatim DV+R?

Sorry for this confusion. I took the name "jukebox" from Creator v 9, which means music made either on CD or DVD. This is not the same as DVD Music.

When you open Creator 2009, on the left side there is an option "Music-Audio", and I click on that, then on the right side a new menu would appear. Under create there are 6 options. Two of them are "Create music disc project" which I call this as (Jukebox), and "Create DVD Music disc".

When I choose “Create music disc project" I go and choose "MP3/WMA disc", then I add my music tracks to it, and finally hit the burn button. In Roxio creator 9, I was able to use this either to burn on CD disc or DVD discs. I am thinking now may be Creator 2009 does not record this option on DVD, and it just do it on CD disc only.

 

I hope I explained it right this time.

 

Thank you so mcuh for your help.

V9 and Jukebox is gone, let it go.

 

Create Music Disc Projects is the one you want which launches Roxio Music Disc Creator.

 

In there you can make a DVD Music Disc which will play on any DVD Player, but that is not what you wanted to make.

 

You need to select MP3/WMA Disc and set the Disc Size: (bottom) to DVD.

 

That is all there is too it…

 

The DVD Music Disc is a special disc which is really a DVD Movie only it doesn't have a picture. Not all DVD Players will play a MP3/WMA Disc so that is why the other one is offered.

Mr. Digital Guru,

 

If you read my previous message you will see that I did what you just mentioned here.

 

Anyhow thanks for your help and for no reason my problem got fixed on its own. I believe my problem started when all the galaxies weren’t in good alignment with each other.

 

Kindest regards.

Mo
