Selectable Gaps Between Songs?

Question

After a virus, I can no longer get my Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 to work on my XP box. An important CD burning feature to me of Easy Media Creator was the ability to set gap times between songs of up to 3 seconds, or no gap at all. No gap is especially useful for live recordings where you want each song and its ending crowd noise to segue into the next.

 

I just purchased Easy CD and DVD Burning. Before I open it I thought I better confirm. Does Easy CD and DVD Burning also offer selectable gaps? Thanks.

As you can tell by the price?

 

Easy CD and DVD Burning (in Red Box): Vista & Windows 7 Compatible, is a cut down, bare bones, won't have what you want/need, neutered version!

 

My suggestion take it back you won't be happy.

 

As to V-7 not working in XP. It should but newer versions of IE and WMP will break V-7...

Thanks for the screenshot, Jim. The Fade and Transition settings I wanted are clearly in Easy CD and DVD Burning. I was hoping, though, that Easy CD and DVD Burning was the same burning application that was in Creator. Just without the other apps that I mostly don't use. However, if Easy CD and DVD Burning isn't as robust, maybe I will take cd's advice and exchange it. Will Creator 2012 be the like kind and quality replacement for my old V7? Or would I have to buy Creator Pro 2012?

 

The virus made my machine not recognize my optical drives. I also could not roll back to an earlier date. SONY's Omnitech Support got the optical drives operational again, I believe just by reinstalling the drivers. The first hint of problems with V7 was the first re-start when the "Drag to disc could not start because components necessary to run are missing." error message popped up. I researched it and tried all the solutions: repair, reinstall, clean registry and reinstall, re-register the two .dlls. Nothing worked. And then I discovered that the other V7 apps I used were broken too. Given my druthers, I'd really prefer to stick with my V7 than upgrade. Do you guys know of anything else I might try before upgrading to Creator 2012?

Your version 7 should work fine in XP with older versions of Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player.

I did the complete uninstall per cd's instruction above and reinstalled Creator 7 but no joy. So perhaps my IE8 or WMP10 is the culprit. When removing IE8 a scan shows all the programs installed after IE8 and there's a bazillion. Seems like too many other apps, updates, and hotfixes to risk breaking just to have Creator 7 back.

 

So I'm debating justing installing my Red Box, which I think will suit my purposes, or maybe exchanging it tomorrow for Creator 12. I'll report my results. Thanks.

IE8 and WMP 10 both kill EMC 7. Nothing beyond IE6 and WMP 9 will allow EMC 7 to function like it should.
