Roxio CD Creator 5 & Vista


 Share

Recommended Posts

From what I can find and understand in this forum, there is no way I can install Roxio CD Creator 5 in a computer with Vista. Therefore, I can not veiw all the picture CD's I made using Roxio. Is there any way what so ever that I can open these CD's in Vista without the purchase of a new Roxio Creator program?

Thank you,

Sue Wilkins

How did you burn the CDs? If you used Creator Classic, any computer, with any OS, will be able to see them.

I used Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum w/ the updates if that makes any difference.

I mean I don't know if having the updates makes a differnce. (Didn't sound right when I read it again.)

There are 2 choices in ECDC 5. You can use the Make a Data CD then click Data CD or Make a Data CD and select Direct CD. DirectCD is packet writing software and provides the ability to burn and copy files on cd media using drag & drop actions in Windows Explorer similar to working with floppy or hard disc drives. This requires formatting the cd media in DirectCD before you can use it in this way. In order to read one of these cd’’s on a computer which does not have DirectCD installed, you must have a udf reader installed on that computer.

 

 

The DataCD Project process does not use formatted media, and works much like other Easy Cd Creator Project activities. You would design and build a project layout, and then burn that project to a cd. The best approach is to finalize session, don’’t finalize cd, so you can add more files later on, if you choose.

 

It sounds like you used Direct CD when you created the CD's. Let us know which you used.

 

Do you still have the old computer that you created the CD's in?.

Beside the 2 data options ogdens noted, did you by chance use the "PhotoRelay' app in ECDC 5 Platinum?

 

Are you able to look at the discs using Windows Explorer?

I did use Direct CD. I still have the old Dell computer. (We put a new hard drive in it) I can copy the pictures to a folder but I can not write to a blank CD without making it a Direct CD on that computer. Have no idea why. Also have a lap top with Creator 5. Not sure if it is Platnium or if it has the updates. It will allow me to copy the pictures to a folder and write them to a blank CD.

I thought maybe if I deleted Roxio 5 Platnium with the updates from the Dell I could re-install without the updates and see if it would then write to a blank disk but it won't allow me to un-install it. With the old lap top I can take everything (tons!) of files off Direct CD's, copy them to a folder then write to a blank CD which I can read in Vista. The problem is the lap top, b ecause of all the updates just done, is very low on memory.

I would be very happy if I could just read them with Vista!

I would assume that I do not have a udf reader installed in the new computer that has Vista or I would be able to read the Direct CD format right? What exactly is a udf writer?

Thanks for your help.

Do not know what "PhotoRelay" is. Also not sure of what you mean by using Windows Explorer. The CD's that I made with Direct CD will not read in the new computer with Vista. They will not even open or list the properties. Nothing.

Someone said my email address was available and I should change that. How???? I can't figure out where to do this. I didn't realize it was available to the public. I set it not to be.

Your email address is NOT visible to anyone, Sue. It is not available even to us Guru Moderators. You can relax.

 

The original poster in another topic where you posted a message HERE was getting a scolding for showing his email address, but you weren't.

Are you referring to this post http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?...mp;#entry276821 it was meant for the original poster, who had his email address in the main body of the message.
