.rox And .roxio Sample Files To Download

Question

Hello,

 

We are looking to replace our .RCL file library with .ROX and/or .ROXIO file library, so that our projects can be burned in the newer Roxio Creator versions.

 

Is it possible to have sample files to download ? We want to know what kind of work we will have to do to convert/rebuild them from our data. I heard it's XML behind, but we all know that all XML files aren't the same.

 

I think .ROXIO is for 2010, 2011, 2012 and .ROX for NXT and NXT 2 ?

 

You can obfuscate the sample files if there's a need.

 

Thank you very much for your help !

As far as I know all versions of Roxio create ".rcl" files when you save a data project. Of course there is no guarantee that any rcl project file from older Roxio versions can be opened in the newer versions. Roxio is notorious for not making project files compatible over different versions.

 

How and when did you create the rcl, Roxio or Rox files?

As far as I know, they are made with Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6, so they are compatible up to Roxio Creator 2012, if I'm not mistaken.

 

Currently, we are on Windows XP, so we do not mind much having users using old Roxio software. We are slowly migrating to Windows 7, we will have to purchase new licenses and here's the problem...

 

To have a rough idea what we will have to do if we migrate to newer Roxio software, we would like to have some samples to see what kind and what amount of work would be needed.

 

Thank you very much !

Konnan,

 

When Sonic acquired Roxio they started replacing Roxio's multipurpose programs with their own simplified Sonic modules.

 

Roxio Creator [later to become 'Creator Classic' and in NXT to be dropped altogether] uses .RCL files for its saved projects.

The simplified [reduced function] Sonic modules integrated in the Home application such as 'Burn Data Disc' use .ROX or .Roxio files for saved projects.

The two types of saved project files are not interchangeable as they are used by totally different programs.

 

The last suite to have Creator Classic and use .RCL files was Creator 2012.

Starting from NXT, only the simplified Sonic modules embedded in the Home app are available since last year, so your .RCL files will be of no use to you unless you can convert them to a totally different format for the Sonic modules.

 

I have Creator 2011 running at the moment, so I have attached an .RCL from Creator Classic burning a single VLC installer file from the Desktop to disc, and a .ROX file from the 'Burn Data Disc' module doing the same operation with the same file. They are zipped, since this board won't allow .RCL or .ROX uploads.

I hope this helps you. I'll do my best to answer any questions you might have.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Hello Brendon,

 

First, I want to thank you very much for your help and for providing me these samples, that's exactly what I need. You even went the extra mile with the same compilation in both formats, that will help greatly.

 

If you look at my first post, you will see that I am aware of the RCL and ROX/ROXIO controversy. That's exactly why I want samples to check what we have to do to generate, regenerate and/or convert either automatically with a script or manually our RCL files to ROX/ROXIO files, since it will get harder to purchase licences of Roxio Creator 2012.

 

By the way, if someone on this board is using NXT 2 and can provide me samples, it would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks again and have a nice weekend,

Konnan

Can't have Brendon doing all the work. ;)

 

From Creator NXT2 Pro, Home Screen, Burn Data Disc, on W-8 x64 Pro not W-8.1. :)

 

I added the 'NXT2' in the name 'NXT2 BurnDataDisc_11-29-2013_082107.rox'

 

Let me know if this helps.

Hello cdanteek,

 

Thank you very much for your sample file. Luckily, it's the same exact file once I open it with Notepad++ it seems to be quite valid XML. It will be scriptable.

 

It means that at least there's compatibility between .ROX files from 2011 to 2014...

 

Thank you very much cdanteek !

Have a nice weekend !

It may sound stupid, but I just want to be sure. You can create .ROX files with either Roxio Creator NXT 2 Pro or not Pro ?

 

Thanks !

No, not true...

 

Edit: Oops, got my negatives mixed up :lol: Yes, Konnan's statement is correct, that ROX files can be created and read with both versions!

HOWEVER, a ROX file is unique to Burn Data Disc!

 

So it is only there you can Save or Open one ;)

Konnan,

 

Yes, be assured you can creatre .ROX files with both the ordinary Creator NXT 2, and/or the Creator NXT 2 Pro.

 

I have done it.

Brendon
