Disc And Device Utility


Shadow T. H.

Question

Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 has contained the Disc And Device Utility. This utility did possible a reading of separate tracks from the disc. But in Roxio Creator 2009 this utility is absent. Why?

 

P.S: And I has noticed one interesting thing: with every new version Roxio EMC loses many important functions and utilities (for example, Drag-To-Disc, DVDInfoPro). First of all Roxio Creator is a program for writing CD/DVD/HD media and it must have all necessary functions and applications for CD/DVD/BD recording. I very hope that in new version of Roxio Creator developers will not refuse from Creator Classic application.

We don't know why features disappear, you will have to ask Roxio/Sonic.

To "drag-to-Disc" disappearing I say good riddance. What "necessary function for writing CD/DVD/HD" do you think is missing?

For example, Roxio Creator Classic has not possibility of selecting of Record Methods (Track-At-Once, Disc-At-Once) (this possibility was presented in Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator 6, in 7th version it already dissappears). Switching between Mode 1 and Mode 2/XA formats in Roxio Creator Classic (this possibility dissappears in 7th version too). And I already spoke about Disc And Device Utility. Why developers refuses from powerful possibilities of Roxio Creator Classic? This application intended for experienced users first of all.

 

Now I have CD with more than one data tracks and I want to rip only one data track from this disc. Roxio Creator Home is not capable for this.

Forget what you knew about the earlier versions. Many recording feature for CD are now in "Create Music Disc Projects".

 

I second Walt's appraisal of Drag to Disc. Packet writing has always been an issue when people either have to different versions or they want to open a disc from a different computer.

 

Yes, I miss DVDInfoPro but perhaps the developers wanted too much $$ to keep it in the suite. Ibelieve that even Ahead Software charges for a similar product.

OK. I agree about Drag-To-Disc. But why Disc And Device Utility is absent?

 

Were just fellow users like you and could speculate forever, so if you REALLY want to know you will have to ask Roxio/Sonic.

Since you have Creator 2009 this is hardly a Sales Question… We will get it moved the General area.

 

Instead of a separate ‘bloated’ program, Utilities has been placed in the Home app under the Tools menu. I believe it contains far more items than it did in earlier versions.

Since you are coming from such an earlier version, you have to realize that your frustration is the price of not keeping up. But keeping up also means being broke :lol:

 

Sit back and enjoy the learning curve.

I think that Disc And Device Utility has far more possibilities than Tools menu in Home application. And items "Load Disc Image", "Create Labels" and "Catalog Your Discs" are separate applications, which we can do started separately, without Home application. These applications are available in Roxio EMC 8 too (only "Catalog Your Discs" is absent).
