Rosszio Posted November 21, 2008 Report Share Posted November 21, 2008 [Rosszie' date=Nov 2008, 01:10 PM] Hello, Brandon. It appears that you are doing all the work that Roxio should do. I have almost identical problems with the ones you solved here. I recently added a new hard drive and a different second CDRW/DVD drive to my Win2K system. This resulted in some CD device renaming (because of the additional hard drive). My problem is twofold: 1) during opening ECDC 5, the error message "Engine Initialization has failed" was displayed. This was annoying but when I continued, it appeared to cause no problems. I could create and populate a new project. But eventually I run into problem 2 (below). First I hunted down the Roxio solution for this issue, (ID Number: EEZ000005), and cleared the registry (from LowFilter, HighFilter keys) as instructed. Have to give credit where it's due, it worked. No more "engine initialization" error. But still when trying to Record a project, Roxio responded with a "There are no supported recorders available." error. 2) I read your previous messages, and this is my scenario. PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W1210A (The original drive) TSSTcorp CDW/DVD TS-H492A (The recently added drive) The Registry entries for these devices are: device001 GENERIC FREECOM48H,GENERIC,FREECOM48H,SAMSUNG48X24,cdrmmc.drv,171,,9 device002 GENERIC FREECOM52H,GENERIC,FREECOM52H,SAMSUNG52X24,cdrmmc.drv,171,,9 device002 PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012S,PLEXTOR,CD-R PX-W4012S,STDMMCDDWS,cdrmmc.drv,155,,5,1,,1 I do not know why is the TSST listed twice with apparently only different speeds (48 vs 52), and the PLEXTOR only once. The PLEXTOR did write using ECDC5 in the past but will not be detected as a recorder now. The TSST wrote just fine in a different computer. This machine is a Win2K OS so I can only try to use InCD from ECDC5, and that also fails in similar fashion: not detecting any drives to use. I did everything I could think of. 1) after futile attempts to fix the current installation, uninstalled ECDC5 completely, even using the "roxizap.exe" that you were kind enough to supply. It is telling that Roxio is removing this (and other utilities as well) from their website, claiming that the users can't be trusted with it. I am sure the feeling is mutual from the users. I don't think that they trust their own tools! 2) I have a) reinstalled my original ECDC 5.0.xxx, updated it to the latest (and likely the last) update fixes ecdc_v22.214.171.124_plt_enu.exe, c) rerun the latest drive detect overlay driveup5.3.5v.exe. And ended up exactly where I have started from: "There are no supported recorders available." It is inexcusable that for all these years Roxio still could not provide a WORKING solution for this age old drive detect issue. Is there any reason I should trust their newer version and buy it? I have a full version of Roxio Creator 9.0 but I am not brave (or fool) enough to install it on any of my systems. I would appreciate if you'd have some ideas and/or possible solutions for using these drives for recording using ECDC5. Sincerely Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
