Any versions after Easy Media Creator 9 does not include drag to disc (packet writing) which is what you are referring to. It will depend if the product is only used for backup purposes in Quicken or not. If yes, then you will have to use EMC9.

If you have Vista or Win7, the packet writing that Quicken is dependant upon is built into the OS!

 

You should be able to format a disc and use through the OS.

 

If you look on Quicken's site that is what they tell you although they really skate around it without saying much… Quicken FAQ

Thanks - looks like I need to remove 10 and reinstall 9 - and ask for a refund!

Running Windows XP- SP3 and I'm not ready for Vista or 7. I assume there is no way to correctly format a CD or DVD within Creator 10 that will work - so I guess I need to revert to 9.

Thanks

You can have both EMC 9 and Creator 2010 installed on your pc btw. You would want to install EMC 9 first then Creator 2010. Installing Creator 2010 will not remove the EMC 9 Drag-to-Disc app that you are wanting to keep using.

That all depends on how you're using your backups. If all you're doing is backing up your quicken files, then Creator 10 will work. You keep your working file on your HD, then you occasionally (weekly? monthly?) write a backup to CD-R or DVD-R using Creator Classic. Not quite as convenient as Drag-to-Disc, which let you save directly from within Quicken, but it's actually more secure/safe than using Drag-To-Disc.

 

An alternative to that would be to use a memory stick if you're just looking for a backup off your computer.

 

Hope that helps!

I have Win7, but it won't backup Quicken to my burner drive. How do I achieve that?

I has Nothing to do with Roxio, you will have to ask Quicken about it!

Most errors occurring when using third-party software to back up a Quicken data file to a CD are caused because CD formatting requirements are not met. If you cannot resolve the CD formatting issues, try backing up your QuickBooks, Quicken data file while bypassing these CD formatting requirements.

Note: Backup files are saved as read-only.

Instructions:

  1. Create a folder on your local hard drive to which you can back up your data, and give it an appropriate name, for example "Quicken Backup Data."
  2. Start Quicken.
  3. If the data file you want to back up is not already open, open it.
  4. Go to File > Backup and Restore > Back up Quicken File (or key command Ctrl+B).
  5. Select Back up on my computer or hard drive.
  6. Click Change and navigate to the folder you created in step 1.
  7. Click Save to start the backup and hit on Back up Now.
  8. When a message appears saying the backup is complete, click OK.
  9. Copy the Quicken data file from the Quicken Backup Data folder to your CD burner using the same procedures you would normally use to copy files to a CD. For more information, refer to the manufacturer's instructions for your computer.

I hope this will be helpful. You can also refer some QuickBooks Hosting Providers to get more details and better understanding about backup issues.

Best Regards
