How To Make Easy Cd Creator 5 Work On My New Laptop?


Recommended Posts

I love the drag-and-drop feature that Easy CD Creator 5 has, it works great on XP on my desktop - I can use a CD like a floppy.


Now, I'd like to do the same on my new Toshiba Portege R705-P35.

The software installs no problem in both WinXP and Win7 that I run on the laptop, but in both I have en error in sys.tray saying "no supported drives" or something like that.


The CD drive that I have on the laptop describes as follows:

"Fixed Optical Disk Drive

• DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats

o Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x),

CD-RW (10x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (8x), DVD-R DL (4X),

DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (8x), DVD+R DL (4x), DVD+RW (4x),

DVD-RAM (3x)"


I can read a DirectCD formatted CD no problem, in both installs, just can't drag and drop, or delete anything.


Anything I can do about it? The older software apparently does not recognize the new hardware. Any updates?


thank you!

I think the version from ECDC5 is too old, but I have Drag-to-Disc from Easy Media Creator 9 working fine with my drives in both XP and Windows 7. Drag to Disc has been dropped by Roxio, so there isn't any later version to be found.
