Burn Image To Two Drives At Same Time

Question

Before I purchase Creator 2012 will it burn an image to two drives in the tower? I have Roxio Creator 10.3 and it will not burn to two drives, one is source and one is destination.

 

Also am I reading the with Creator 2012 it will not burn Blu Ray?

[1] Yes, you can burn a disc image to two drives simultaneously. Creator 2012 still has Creator Classic, and when you're doing the burn setup with Creator Classic you can select multiple drives as destinations.

 

[2] I have also have 10.3, and it will do the same. Even the very reduced function "RedBox" Easy CD & DVD Burning has Creator Classic 10.3 and it was quite happy to burn an to both my drives a couple of minutes ago.

Run Creator Classic, go to File > Burn From Disc Image File, select your .ISO; .CIF; .CUE; or C2D file and tick the appropriate boxes in the Burn Setup dialog box.

 

[3] See Steve's reply about Blu-Ray.

Brendon

Brendon, I deleted most of my reply based on yours which is more complete.

 

Creator 2012 PRO will burn blu ray if you have the right hardware.

 

Creator NXT is the latest version on the web site but Creator Classic was removed.

[ post-97-0-98337500-1371050287_thumb.jpg]I found was I do not have that burn set up option, with Roxio Creator Premier 10.3. I have burn options but does not allow you to pick more then one drive.

 

I also found that with burnaware review it says: "but the best option is allowing you to burn more than one DVD, CD or BD at a time, which we don't recommend anyway because of the amount of resources it takes to burn a disc. We have seen our fair share of botched CDs, DVDs and BDs that just won't work correctly."

 

By this I assume it's not a good idea to burn to multiple drives because you can not be sure of errors.

Look again. Burn ISO to disc is NOT the same as "Creator Classic". You have the OEM version but as Brendon says, you should have Creator Classic, Go to Windows Start, All Programs, llok for the folder for Creator 10.3. Look in it (it may be under another folder called "Creator Classic" Click on that to open it.

 

I haven't yet looked at the citation you posted but I believe that may be relating to encoding and burning at the same time; in that case, ripping the DVD to your computer and burning. I would agree with that. If you have the ISO image, there is no ripping or encoding.

What do you have under Data and Backup? Is Creator Classic there?

A search for Classic is not on my drive. I am concerned that burning multi disc at one time may create errors anyway.

Are you saying just copying an ISO to two drives would not necessarily create errors?

 

 

Would "Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning" have "Creator Classic" to do the multi disc burning I want to accomplish?

Okay, the link you provide is for a program to copy DVDs, so it looks like it's decoding, ripping, and burning at the same time.

 

Several years ago, and a many generations of processors back, I put together a system just for burning multiple (2) DVD discs at once from a .ISO file. Never had a problem. Just shoving data through the bus to the drives doesn't take that much processor power.

What is "e" drive and why do you have programs on it?

 

Go to the Windows start button and search for "Creator Classic". Does it show up? If not, you can still copy one at a time.

Like myself, it looks like RonCz doesn't care to have Windows decide where to install applications. I put mine on my D: drive. :P

 

But you're correct, he needs to look under the start menus.

It really does not have to be this hard...

 

Open Creator Classic ~ Burn ISO ~ add file:

Not trying to make this hard but as you can see by the picture its not in Start, not on "C" drive and a search of the computer for "classic" is not there as an app. There is no Creator Classic.

 

I keep programs on a separate "E" partition because many moons ago when I set up the drive I it would be easier to reinstall OS.

 

My data and backup disc screen shows no creator classic.

Yes! I agree it is not part of your cutdown OEM package...

 

But it is part of other Retail versions of Roxio, NOT Including NXT ;)

You didn't answer the question that I asked before, but your picture shows what I suspected. You have a really cut down version of the software. I hope that you didn't pay for it. ;)

My Apologies, Ron.

 

I didn't think the company had put out any versions with even more features removed than Easy CD & DVD Burning, and I hoped to bring you a happy surprise by pointing out that you already have the ability you wanted.

 

I see now that you have Creator Premiere 10.3, and they've removed even more abilities and given it an even fancier name. I'm saddened, and I hope I haven't disappointed you. Like GrandpaBruce, I hope you didn't have to pay for it.

 

If you get a suite with Creator Classic, that'll do the job. I've never had a problem burning multiple discs simultaneously from an image.

 

Regards,

Brendon
