Roxio Nxt Copywrite 2012 Crashes Windows 8 Computer

Recommended Posts

I purchased Roxio NXT 2013 from Amazon and when I installed it on my computer running windows 8 and tried to use it the computer crashed. I checked the disc and it is copywrite 2012. Can it be updated or patched to run on windows 8?

It works in Windows 8, no update needed. Make sure you do this to prepare for installation (or repair).

 

You ay want to uninstall it, do the computer updates and then reinstall it.

The Roxio Creator NXT software is compatible with Windows 8. The problem is that the software for the installed optical drive is Nero 12 and Nero and Roxio software are totally incompatible. After installing Creator NXT, each time I put in a blank disc the computer would crash with the message "Windows has developed a problem and is gathering some information and then will restart. Driver IRQL not less or equal, storport.sys" When I tried to burn a disc using the DVD burning software (Nero 12) or Windows Media Player, the same thing happened. When I uninstalled the Creator NXT the problem went away. Of course the discs burned with Media Player or the Optical drive software won't play on most DVD players. I have been trying for two days to find out if the Nero 12 software can be uninstalled and then replaced with something user friendly like Roxio, but to no avail. :(

Optical Driver Do Not require ANY Software to run!!!

 

They require a Driver and that should be from the OS, Win8 in this case.

 

ANY INSTALLED software can be Uninstalled :o (Control Panel - Programs & Feature)

 

Nero and Roxio have always been compatible and a search of the web indicates you are the only person in the whole world that thinks they are not... -_-

 

Granted someone would have to be First but don't you think after 9 months someone else would have found this :huh:

 

If you don't like Nero and you have the disc, Uninstall it and see what happens.
