1. Go back to Windows XP.

 

2. Upgrade your software to Creator 2010.

 

Those are your 2 choices.

James,

 

Easy Media Creator 8 came out in the fall of 2005. Vista OS wasn't even out then, why do you find it odd that W-7 won't load,

 

be compatible, with the four year old version of Easy Media Creator 8!

 

Two choices like grandpabruce said...

I have the same problem. Specifically , Windows 7 won't accept the drivers because they are unsigned. I've asked for a signed version of the drivers and have yet to see a response. The drivers listed & I think I missed one because it seemed to be titled the same were: cd_udfntfilesystemdriver, px_enginedevicedriver-for64-bit, dvd-ramAddonDrive, win2000FrameworkforpacketwriteDrive

 

There was a post somewhere else about this being solvable if you request this from the company. The first time I tried I was told this a legacy product and not supported. Even so, they should still have those files. If not, I am sorely dissapointed and I WILL NOT BE BUYING ANY FUTURE ROXIO PRODUCTS EVER!!!!

Post # 2 lists your options!

 

How can you expect 4 year old software to be compatiable with Windows 7 Operating Syatem launched October 22 2009?

I find it odd that people will pay for W7 when their computers are working fine with XP or Vista and then complain that 4 year old software won't work. They then reject the idea of upgrading to something that will make good use of the new features in W7. I wonder if they complained and threatened to go to a different OS when there were no printer and other hardware drivers for Vista?

 

James that doesn't apply to you since you have a new computer. Please consider looking at the W7 compatible Creator 2010. Here is what it has compared to your version. I'm sure that your new computer has more power and features and that you have other audio/video toys (HDTV, phone, mp3 player, etc.). The newer version make working with those easier.

 

If you do decide to upgrade, make sure you read the KB articles about preparing and installing Creator 2010 on your computer.

I find it very sad that Roxio wants previous legal software version owners to pay for upgrades rather than provide solutions. Where is the incentive to upgrade to a newer product when there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE that there will not be a way to continue to use THAT procuct with a newer PC.

What was the 'incentive' to upgrade the OS?

 

If you got a new PC, then that's fine but you can still install the older OS (if you have the discs and key).

 

Have you tried installing older MS products on Windows 7? Let me know just HOW you managed to get those to work, especially Office 97 or other of MS' own 'legacy' products
