Officially, ECDC 5 is NOT supported with WinXP SP2, because a lot of the changes made with SP2 don't work with ECDC 5, a 1999 program which hasn't had any software updates since 2003.

 

Some people have gotten it to work, but since your mother does not appear to be a techie, it might be better to run Roxizap (URL is in FREQUENT ANSWERS pinned to the top of the board) and clean it out.

 

WinXP has built-in burning for making music CDs and data discs, which I suspect will be enough.

 

I hope she hasn't been using DirectCD, since DirectCD discs may or may not be readable with WinXP's built-in .udf reader, and if not, you may have to use a recovery program (see FREQUENT ANSWERS). (DO NOT load the .udf reader offered by the DirectCD disc if it isn't readable, it is NOT COMPATIBLE with WinXP.)

 

If the WinXP built-in burning isn't enough, you will need to get a newer burning program.

I have 3 questions

 

1. Where can i find the WinXP built-in burning?

2. How do i enable it?

3. Is where a guide how to use the WinXP built-in burning?

1. I don't believe it shows up as a separate application, it's built into Windows Explorer.

2. It should be enabled by default.

3. Not sure, check the Windows Help.

 

When I've used it (not on my system since I prefer W2K) all I've done is dragged files to the CD Writer drive letter in Windows Explorer. At that point, they get queued up for burning. I think you right-click on the drive, and it'll show you files that are "ready to burn" and then there's a button there to write them to disc. But it's all done from Windows Explorer.

 

Hope that helps!

Either right-click > send to (burner drive), or drag to the burner drive, and follow the prompts. Altho it works like drag&drop, it is actually the much safer Sessions format - as my software guru observed, Microsoft didn't want to deal with the problems that come with Packet-Writing.

 

That's all my software guru has (or uses).
