Save Project Doesn't Allow Re-Save

Question

On Windows 7 I have:-

Easy CD and DVD Burning DE Home

Version: 10.3.106

Build: 101B06C, DEP

Serial Number: <removed>

Copyright: Sonic Solutions 2007

 

 

I am creating a data disc, by making a project file and over several days updating which files are in the project until I am happy with it then I will burn it. I discovered when I came back to it the second day, and reloaded the project (*.ROXIO file) that the project still contained the contents when I saved it the first time. I had pulled in the full contents of a folder and then gradually remove files from the project file that I didn't need. These removals don't get saved when you press save or use File->Save.

 

I tried File->Save As using the same file name (overlaying the file) - that wouldn't remember the removals either.

 

I tried saving as a new file - no luck either.

 

So now it seems I have to do this all in one sitting, which begs the question what the point of a project file is.

 

Has anyone else see this problem and found a way around it?

 

EDIT: In fact I now see that Remove is ignored on any save, including the first one.

 

Cheers

Morag

Hello Morag,

 

I have 10.3.104 [and there's no updater for me to get to your 10.3.106 version] on XP.

I guess you're using "Data Disc" from the Data and Backup menu, since your project is saving as a .roxio file.

 

The program is supposed to allow you to load a saved project, change it, and then re-save the amended project. Either Save or Save As should write the amended .roxio file, so that you can progressively build up a data project over time as your intuition told you.

 

My program behaves as expected, which would suggest that either yours is broken or perhaps a setting in your Windows 7 is preventing the program from overlaying the old file with the new one.

 

You said "I tried saving as a new file - no luck either". Does that mean the new file wasn't created, or does it mean the new saved project file still had all the filenames [including the deleted ones] in it? You did select the new file to load?

 

 

There is another way to make data discs, using "Creator Classic" from the Data and Backup menu. Creator Classic [CC] is a full featured program which imho is much better than the "Data Disc" module. It saves projects as .RCL files, and it's quite intuitive. Mine works well and deleted files don't appear in re-saved projects.

 

Would you try doing the same operations with CC and see if that works properly for you, please?

 

Regards,

Brendon

The .106 is normal for the Dell Edition he is running. ;)

 

Using the Data Disc app, I cannot duplicate your problem…

 

If add 3 files and Save:

Then add 4 more and Save:

I then close and reopen the app but when I load my Saved Project, all 7 files are present!

And if I delete the top 3 and save… When I reopen the project, the changes are there:

:glare: As you did a Save As along the way, it is possible you used a different name but are Opening the original file???

 

Likewise, maybe 2 files of the same name but in different locations on your HDD???

 

Tip ;) : since you have a DE version, make sure you download the program from Dell and burn it to disc! It was not included in your discs so if you ever need to reload it, you won’t have it unless you do this now.

I played around with the Data Disc a little further and I think the ignored removals are either because of 2-level deep sub folders or spaces in the sub-folder names.

 

However, I then tried out the recommended Creator Classic and it worked beautifully, so thank you for the recommendation. I will use that for my next project too.

 

If I have time again in a few weeks (now away from home computer for a while) I will see if I can narrow down the exact problem in the Data Disc in case anyone else ever sees it, and will post back here if I discover something more concrete.

Thank you Morag,

 

That will be very helpful.
