You can disable via msconfig, or I think that you can go to Add/Remove Programs, scroll down to EMC 8, select Change, and uninstall D2D, there. I know you can do this step if you have the Retail version.

Didn't work anyway..............

 

Does too :lol:

 

At least on my machine - did you remember to give the three finger salute to get Task Manager up and stop D2D before removing it in add/remove programs?

I got rid of Drag to Disc because it wants to override anything you want to do with a CD or DVD using Windows Explorer. For example, if you want to drag data files to a CD (very simple with Explorer). Drag to Disc would prevent that. It also prevented erasing a CD using Windows.

 

So, I uninstalled EMC8 and re-installed it using custom install and omitted Drag to Disc. Everything works fine now.

 

No, msconfig (despite Roxio's recommendation) will not work. I think it only disables it for the current session. As sonn as you boot up again, Drag to Disc is there because of the startup.

 

I didn't try it, but you might try msconfig and go to the Startup tab to remove Drag to Disc. I found just reinstalling without Drag to Disc worked fine.

It has been almost 4 months since the OP was even here, so I doubt he will read you post.

 

Just as well as your info about msconfig is completely wrong. If you disable DrgToDsc.exe in msconfig, it will NEVER start again until you re-enable it in msconfig!

 

If yours did, it is because you may have indivertibly restarted it, but it cannot change msconfig on its' own.

 

All things considered we are all relieved to see that D2D was dropped in V10. Nero is dropping theirs as well.
