The Device Is Reserved By Another Application





Have just created a project in Music Disc Creator (Mp3s) but when I try to burn it to CD I get a message telling me that both my CD rom drives are "reserved by another application".

There are (as far as I know) no other applications running (2012 is the only one open) that would be using the drives.

Windows Media Player does, quite happily, burn the original (pre-project) files and then plays them perfectly.

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and, more importantly, how to get over it, please?


Sorry if this has been asked before.

Thanks for that.


The only 2 applications running at the time are:


Roxio Creator 2012 Pro

Roxio Music Disc Creator


i.e the 2 you would expect to see.




Stop all running programs including antivirus/firewall.


Put the installation disc in a drive and select repair when offered, when it's done reboot the PC.


Does it work correctly now?
