Dvd's Or Cd's Won't Play In Other Computers.

Question

I have Creator 9 on a XP platform. If I try to copy pictures, or download an application onto a cd or dvd, roxio seems to put its own signature on the dvd/cd and it cannot be read on another computer. Is there a way around this other than deleting Roxio? I use it alot. Usually when trying to download to the dvd/cd I am in explore and not using roxio.

Cinda,

 

A full installation of the full version of Easy Media Creator 9 [is EMC 9 what you're using ?] has two writing systems for putting data onto a CD or DVD.

 

[1] Is a standard "authoring" system using Creator Classic and plain blank discs. Here you run Creator and assemble a list of files and folders, and then burn them all to disc at once. This is called a session, and you can either fill a disc with one large session or add a number of smaller sessions until you run out of room.

The discs made by this method are standard CD or DVD ROMS, readable by any PC without special software.

 

[2] Is a proprietary method of writing data to specially formatted discs using the Windows Explorer interface. The program is called 'Drag to Disc" and seizes control of the drive when it notices the presence of a specially formatted disc. The discs this makes are non standard, and often can't be read on other computers.

 

It seems to me that Drag to Disc is enabled on your machine and your discs are being formatted prior to use. I'd suggest you uninstall or disable Drag to Disc, and use Roxio's Creator Classic to write your files to discs in sessions. XP has a limited ability to do this to CDs, but you need to get that Drag to Disc out of the way first.

 

If you are allowed to delete, there should be an entry for Drag to Disc in Add/Remove programs.

However if you don't want to immediately delete it you can remove it temporarily from the startup list of programs by using msconfig.exe.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Brendon,

 

Thank you for the information. I was able to delete the Drag to Disc from the Add/Remove program. I have to restart my computer now and then I will try to recopy to the disc.

 

Thank You,

Cinda

If it's an RW disc that was formatted, go to tools and erase it completely - if it's a - or +R, it is scrap
