A:roxio creator 7 error

there are several CD/DVD devices and media available:
original CD/R
and DVD as well.

You need to match the media to the device.
device .... media
CD/R .......CD/R or CD/RW but it will end up as CD/R
CD/RW.....CD/RW only if you attempt to create an R/W image
..............otherwize it can use CD/R to create a CD-ROM image.

Were you trying to create a CD/RW image and which media type was mounted?

Hi. I found similar problems like this on other forums but no clear solution... Can anyone help?

I just installed a brand new Cicero CD Writer and installed Roxio Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum. I have Windows 98 SE and installed the update from Roxio website upgrading the software to version (newest). For some reason, when I try to run the program, it says three error messages in a row:

"Easy CD Creator Initialization Engine has failed."
"Exception in CreateInstanc of Creator!"
"Creatr50.exe: This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down."

I don't know what else to try!? Roxio's website doesn't have this specific problem... it just gives general Win98 troubleshooting hints, none of which work.

I tried this EXACT same procedure on my brothers computer... another exact same CD writer, same version of Easy CD Creator, etc and it works perfectly.... the only difference is that he is running Windows 2000 instead of 98.

Thanks a lot.

Almost at the end of burning a cd, error message appears, then a window pops up stating to contact microsoft. It appologises for the inconvenience and then shuts down the computer. When
attempting to burn a cd again, it froze and error appeared and shut down the program. Is this a virus? I am using Norton antivirus and no viruses were found. Is it just the Roxio software?

Can anyone out there give me an idea what this means? At times when I'm burning a file backup CDR using Roxio's EZ CD Creator v5.1 I get the message:

"One or more paths in this CD project has exceeded the maximum length allowed by the current file system. You may continue to burn this CD, but the files in these paths may not be readable"

I'm not sure about what is meant by "the current file system." Is there a setting that I can adjust to correct this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


A:Roxio EZ CD Creator Error Message in Win 98SE

The filenames on CDs (joliet standard) can contain maximum 96 characters, you might have some files with very large names, like mp3s or similar. Also, according to ISO standard maximum path+filename length must not exceed 256 characters, you might have some crazy folder structure that goes very deep and not all burning applications will allow you to exceed this limit (path+filename length limit, joliet limitation still remains). I prefer useing Nero as it will warn you in advance of Joliet and ISO incompatabilities.

You may be able to use EZCD's packet writing to overcome some of the problems caused by the long path length. I believe UDF 2, the disk format used by EZCD's packet writing, supports path+filename lengths up to 1024 characters.

I recently tried (unsuccessfully) to make a rescue disk using Macrium Reflect Software. In the process of dealing with my DVD w/r +/-, Roxio software was triggered. This is software that came installed with my pc in windows xp pro SP3. I have an installation disk which says Roxio Creator & MyDVD 9.0 DE.
I have never used the programs until now - For years they sat untouched, showing in Revo uninstaller with the installation date as 2009 - I think that I did a reinstallation of Windows at that time. Almost immediately, Roxio seems to have started updating all the parts of these programs, and added a few items as well, including Sonic Activation Module, and an updater. All the related software got an updated installation date of the day I opened the program, and continued getting more updated dates. My computer startup became very slow, and I suspected the cause could be these new Roxio updates. So I decided to uninstall this software, and if I need it, I will reinstall it.
I use Revo uninstaller, and ran it for MyDVD. On level 4, it came up with over a thousand registry entries. This concerned me, so I went back to level 3. A number of entries were in common files/shared files folder: if they were in a subfolder with the word "roxio" I deleted them. My intent was to also uninstall all the Roxio Creator programs one by one (each part of the program shows up as a separate installation). When I scrolled through the registry entries, I found a number of them incl... Read more

I installed Roxio Easy media creator 7 a while ago and I just did a windows xp repair but now roxio keeps bringing up this message:

* Please wait while windows configures Roxio Easy media creator 7 basic DVD edition...
- The only opton is cancel...

If I cancel it keeps coming up...

If I let it run through it says

*"Error 1706 no valid source could be found for product Roxio Easy media creator 7 basic DVD edition windows cannot continue"

then goes back to the first message and tries again...
Roxio 7 still works perfectly fine when I open it from desktop or start!
however whenever I open a browser, or try and rename a folder or save something it comes up with the error mentioned earlier...
it just keeps doing this and stops me continuing my work...

I have lost my Roxio 7 cd so I can't install the disk to fix this problem...

I found however my Roxio 6 disk so I tried just removing Roxio 7 using add remove programs... but this just brings up the same error... and wont uninstall...

does anyone know how to stop this message coming up?
(note roxio works fine I just want to stop the error message- but failing that does anyone know how to get rid of the program altogether)

thanks for your time

I encountered the same problem awhile back; it's a known bug with the Windows Installer.
MOPER made this suggestion & it worked perfectly for me. Give it a try..

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.

Install and run it, look for an entry similar to "WordPerfect". Delete the entry and all should be fine.

Well, Roxio 10 does, or at least tries to do so many things now, what part of it is not responding? As far as replacement programs go, same issue, replace what part(s)? If its just used for burning, CDBurnerXP, ImgBurn and a couple of other programs handle that aspect quite nicely for free.

The only part that doesn't work for me is the virtual DVD drive emulation--instant reboot crash, so I use a couple different emulators that work just fine instead.

I had Easy CD Creator 4 installed when I bought my computer in 2001, running on Windows ME and had NO PROBLEMS at all with it. I still have the disk for EZCDC4.

Computer crashed in Jan03 (unrelated) and Roxio EZCDC5 was installed by store (no disk provided). Had endless problems with it, so I re-installed V.4 and was able to burn a few CDs using V4.

Last week I tried to Delete Roxio V5 and start over. Also deleted V4 and re-installed V4.

Now I have a REAL problem..... V4 is installed, but every time I put a CD in the burner, I get an error message (the screen turns blue) and the system hangs up and I have to turn off the computer!!!!!

Would appreciate any help. I'm a real novice at this, but Iwould like to go back to using Easy CD Creator 4 because I had no problems at all with it.

A:roxio cd creator

It should not take substantially longer to copy with EZCD than with any other software. Maybe a few seconds either way.

Update EZCD: and go to Memorex and get the latest firmware update for the burner.

You might run the speed tests for your CD-ROM and burner – sometimes that triggers the speed. And make sure you have the speed set to max. I presume you are burning to high speed CDR media. Most burners anymore analyze the media for speed capability. If all else fails you might try different blanks.

My question is what do I need to do in order to get Roxio Creator 6 to burn me a Cd!?Click to expand...

Easy CD/DVD Creator 6 requires "drive updates" from Roxio's support site in order to "see" your CD recorder. While version 6 was active (and for a period of time afterwards) Roxio would release downloadable updates to include the latest burners. My guess would be that they issued their final update between 1 and 2 years ago. So to answer your question, you'll need to visit Roxio's site and download the most recent drive update hoping it includes support for your particular writer. If not, you'll probably have to find an older drive or newer software.

FYI, starting with Easy Media Creator 7, Roxio adopted a new technology that reads the necessary info directly from the drives firmware. This eliminated the need for drive updates as any burner would automatically be supported.

I read the other posts about Roxio but my question is a little different. I use CD-RW discs to back up my documents and photos. When I open the interface I have the files I want to back up in the top view and usually the CD-RW which has been put into my CD ROM loads and I can see what is on it. I then highlight the files I want to burn and "ADD" them wherever on the CD-RW I want them to go. This morning I burned one bunch of files, then cleared to a "New data disc" and put in the next CD. It did not load and the bottom view pane stayed blank though I could go to my Computer and clearly view what was on the disc. I assumed it was a fault on the CD and was able to click on it in the top pane and reformat then go back to my files and put the whole bunch onto the lower view and burn from there. I checked to make sure "Read only" was NOT selected, burned the file and thought nothing more of it till I tried other discs. Now none of them are showing in the view pane of creator Classic, even the one I rewrote. I did a full installation and reinstall of Roxio but the same thing is happening. I love my Roxio (even if I do have ther AVS programs, which, by the way I can't figure out for CD-RW discs as it keeps wanting to erase the disc.) so if I can get help with my Roxio I would much appreciate it.

Failing that...would I have to erase and reformat all of my Roxio discs before AVS will write onto and then keep adding to them?

I'm new here and I have a problem that perhaps someone can help me resolve.

I have an AMD 2000XP system with a Soyo Dragon Lite KT333 board. I have 512MB of ram, and CD-ROM and CD-RW (Creative 8-4-32). I am running Windows 2000 Professional.

I am using Easy CD Creator 5.0 to try and burn CDs. My CD-RW unit is a secondary master and my CD-ROM is the secondary slave.

When I try to burn data or music, the software does so without producing any errors. However, after the burn session is over, my newly created CD is corrupt...when looking in the MY COMPUTER folder, I see nothing but "Compact Disk (D: )" and when I click on it to open it, I get "D: is not accessible, incorrect function."

When check the properties of the disk, I see an empty disk...0 KB on it.

I am completely stumped. I used to use this same software on my previous PIII 650 with an Asus board. I had the same CD players also....I just carried these guys over.

Hey Friends,

I have Roxio Creator 2009 (aka Roxio Creator DE). It came with my dell. It used to work fine, until I tried to use it a couple of months ago. It just freezes when I load it. I thought it would go away but it hasn't. I had vista and it wasn't working. I upgraded to windows 7 hoping that would fix it but it didn't. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I have deleted the roxio folder from my registry and reinstalled and that didn't work (I backed up the reg if you think I need to put it back to its original state). Every time I try to start it it freezes and I have to force it to close. If I try to open it again before I restart it freezes everything and I have to do a cold shutdown

As always, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Usually, when roxio "closes" a cd, it is supposed to make it readable in most CD drives....hmmm

Have you tried copying the pertinent files over to your hard drive and browsing to the files from Money? Do you know what the file extensions should be? Has roxio changed the file extensions?

Try copying the files back to your hd and opening them. Post back and let us know how you did.

Easy CD Creator will not work with XP. Their Platinum version will; of course, they'll ask you for $60 for the privilege.

If you have burned your System Rescue Disc set then you may want to just use some other burning software. I think Winamp has plugins for managing libraries. I usually use CDBurnerXP or even the old Burrrn program to burn audio discs. The latest Imgburn is supposed to do audio also. Plus Winamp has burn support. Those big bloated "all in one" software packages get in the way more than anything once you've burned for awhile. Small light special apps is the better way to go. See - Forum, Guides, Tools and hardware lists for a good place to get going with smaller programs that run faster and work better.

After spending an hour and ahalf with a technician from Roxio, we figured out that in order to use roxio easy cd creator to burn files onto a cd or make music cd's it's necessary to run msconfig, click selected startup, then uncheck the 'load startup items' box, click apply and reboot. That done, the program works. When finished you have to go back into msconfig and reset it to normal startup with the 'load startup items' box checked. The technician asked if there were any other cd burning programs on the computer and I said 'no', but fact is, Windows xp has it's own cd burning function and that may be what's interfering with Roxio. To use XP to burn cds go to start, then 'help and support' and type in what you want to do. (I put in 'copy files to a cd' and got a nice step X step explantion of how to do it that I printed out.

You will get a duration and file size even if there is no sound; it will faithfully record silence if that is what is there. You need to detemine firstly that sound is coming over the channel you are recording from (line in, aux in, mic???). VU meters would help. Maybe see if you can record with Audacity.

According to this: "If you need to uninstall version 4 or 5 of Roxio and are not using other Roxio software such as GoBack (because it will be uninstalled too), try the Roxizap uninstaller.(NOTE: if you ARE using GoBack, uninstall before and reinstall afterward.) (At present, you can go to the knowledgebase and type in "roxizap" and get the link and the instructions; let us know if the link is having problems again".)

A:Solved: Roxio Creator 10 Software

The VideoWave component of Roxio (9, should be in 10 too?) will convert video to several different PSP video-compatible formats. The problem you may be having is with the copy protection on commercial DVDs. There are very few commercial programs that will willingly circumnavigate that copy protection.

So yes, Roxio is a decent converter but if commercial DVDs are involved, it won't help you with that particular task.

I believe Roxio Creator 2009 software requires an uninstall, reinstall if you upgrade from Vista to Windows 7. If you had the software installed before you upgraded, you'll have to uninstall it, then reinstall it in order for all parts of it to work correctly.

If you did not have it on the computer when you had Vista, or if you uninstalled it before you upgraded, I would still perform an uninstall, reinstall of the software, just to make sure something didn't get screwed up in the installation.

A:Slow burning with Roxio Creator NXT 3

Burning, by definition, does NOT involve encoding. Burning is the process of copying data from a source (usually the HDD) and "burning" the data onto disc (CD, DVD. Blu-ray).

Encoding infers that you are taking video files, and CREATING a video DVD. The encoding process converts the source file(s) into a DVD compliant mpeg2 video and audio stream. Encoding time is largely cpu dependant, but some applications are faster than others. The source file format can also impact performance.

So, most likely, nothing is "broken".

I used to have a HP Cdwriter which used DirectCD to write and rewrite cdrw media on my old computer which ran on Windows ME. You could use the cd like a floppy drive. The machine I have now uses Roxio Easy CD Creator 7 which really does not utilize the cdrw the same way. If you delete a file with Roxio it only hides it. The only way to really delete files is to erase the entire disk. This is not cool. HP’s software also allowed you to setup a cd rom for your computer only or for all computers. This was cool.

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me with a problem on Roxio EMC 7? Until recently, the prog has been working fine, but now it seems to have developed a problem. In simple terms, it is refusing to convert CDA to MP3 and/or MP3 to CDA.
If I try to make an audio cd from mp3 files on my HD: I go through the usual practice of opening up the prog and then dragging the mp3 files from the contents pane down to the project pane, but now when I do this the file does not show up in the project pane and nothing is added to the project.
Conversely, If I try to rip audio files from a CD and convert them to MP3 files on my HD, again the prog just does not do it. There are no error messages and no clues as to why it won't do the job.
I don't know a lot about computers but it seems like the "conversion engine" (if there is such a thing) isn't working.
It is a proper prog (not pirated) and I have tried re-installing, but it still will not do the job.
I am running Win XP Pro - SP2.
I have tried getting help at Roxio but their idea of support is abysmal - I would probably have more success if I tried knitting with fog!

I hope some of you more computer literate people out there might know the answer.

Usually when I click on the desktop icon or start menue icon for Roxio- I get the opening graphic with choices for all the modules (They call this "Home"- it has options for Easy CD Creator, Drag to Disk, Audio, etc.) However, now I get nothing. I can actually burn a CD by selecting the Creator Classic module in the Start Menue folder-- but the usual opening selector graphic is not working.

I checked the icon properties and searched for the target- a file called:
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\Project Selector\Projselector.exe"

It is there, but double clicking on it does nothing.

The only thing I can think of that even remotely relates to this is that the other day I went directly to the Start Menue choices and clicked on "Creator Classic" rather than my usual MO of clicking on the desktop icon to start the program--- but I don't see how this would change anything.

Like I said, I can still start each module--- just not the selector graphic??? Does anyone have any ideas?

I have an XP-P4. I use ZoneAlarm, AVG, SybotS&D, AdAware and Stinger on a regular basis.

My first guess is to try reinstalling Roxio- but thought I'd check to see if anyone had additional thoughts or experience.

I've been having problems with stupid roxio. From the get go, few years back I got an external cd burner (iomegaZipcd650). When I loaded it, in the task bar an image that says "safely remove software" came up. Since, I've never been able to get it to go away. It'd work fine everyonce in a while so I was happy from what I could get. Then I found that it could be from a missing patch/update and downloaded that, well after I got that all installed I figured everything would be alright. BUT...then it started saying EzCd creator can't find a supported cd burner when trying to actually burn the cd. So I uninstalled the patch/update and got it running again. Now I've tried installing another patch/update and yet again, the same thing. AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG this makes me so mad . But this time I can't seem to find out what's making it do it, errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I'm on XP and it's the basic version of Roxio. I can burn the cd fine from Windows Media Player, it's just that I don't want the 2 second "intermission" if you will, in there. Thanks for the help.

Do you have the roxio software and iomega software?

If so do this. Uninstall both the roxi and iomega software. Unplug the iomega drive. Right click on my computer, click on properties, click on hardware, click on device manager.

Find the iomega drive listed in there and delete it.


Reinstall iomega software. Attach iomega drive. Make sure windows media player works with it. Then install roxio.

I operate a Windows Vista, I have been using Roxio Creator Basic v9 to make my CD-Rs for music, and DVD-Rs for Slide Shows. For years I used the same proceedures, and now I am unable to make CD-Rs, and DVD-Rs. When I complete the recording, a window comes up stating that the disc was successful in coping it, but I put in a CD-R player nothing happens, the same with the DVD-R player. What am I doing wrong?

Hey all,

I rebuilt my system a few months ago and have yet to be able to get my copy of Roxio Easy CD creator 5.0 premium to run on my rig.

Its really strange... I will install it (complete install) and it just won't run. When I click on program the mouse turns to an hourglass for a sec or 2 but then nothing. I've tried from the root directory and it does the same thing.

Its gets stranger... The above situation occurs with the 'main' programs in the suite. 'Project Selector' 'direct cd' and the 'easy cd creator' program itself. But, but some of the crap does run like the 'soundstream' and 'sound editor'

Now it gets really strange... 'Direct CD' automatically starts when you boot up (this is what it is supposed to do) I can see it running in Task Manager(processes) but when I try to open it up it doesn't do anything.

Now its just gets freeky!... I went ahead and attempted to install the Roxio patch from their website (thought it might cover this bug) and the patch states 'No qualified Roxio product found' when I run the patch! The program clearly shows in the registery, and I can use the Windoze add/remove program options to install and uninstall the program!

I went ahead and install Nero just to make sure its not a hardware issue. Nero runs fine. The roxio is the full retail version (not a hack). Any ideas?

I have an O/S Vista Premium. I bought the Roxio Easy Media Creator a couple of years ago when I was using XP and it worked excellent. I now have issues with the program. When I initiate the program the main menu comes up but that is it. When I try to do something like create a data disk or anything else then it just kind of freezes and won't initiate. Has anyone had any experience with this O/S and this software? It seems the company is not interested in anything older than 2009 I cannot even get a response from them. I paid over a hundred dollars for this software so I am a little perturbed that I cannot get it to operate in Vista. I have tried removing it from my computer and doing a complete new install but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I would appreciate any assistance you could offer. If this cannot be corrected then maybe a suggestion of what software could replace it.... I have no intention of giving Roxio any more of my hard earned money if their software is out of date in three years..... and not even an offer of an upgrade at a reasonable price. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

I left the project and closed the program. I started it up later and now it will not even read the dvd I want to burn......has anyone else had this problem??? Any advice??? Thanks Alison

Are you networked? You could set the computer up in control panel as “Windows Logon” and see if you can uninstall it.

You might try updating it and then uninstalling:

Evidently Take Two is a problem with XP. The update removes it and that might allow you to uninstall it.

I use CD-RW drives on my work and my home PC to transfer work files back and forth. Currently, I have EasyCD Creator 5 deluxe platinum on both machines. Because I upgraded both machines from Windows 2000 to Win XP Professional, I sometimes had trouble setting up the software for XP and would get incompatibility messages for directCD (which manages my CD-RW discs), but it would always finish installing and I can use the software fine.

My office has gotten EasyMedia Creator 7 and I have not updated my pc's because I don't know if I would be able to access and add files to CD-R's that were created using version 5.

Can I go back and forth between CD-R's made with version 5 on one machine and version 7 on another machine?

I archive my files onto CD-R's by project name and whenever I go back and work on projects that I archived months ago, I just add the new archive data onto the CD-R archive disc that I created long ago until that CD-R is full. I don't want to try and access and add to an old version 5 CD-R using version 7 and end up losing data in the process. I could alwasy just upgrade both machines to version 7, but like I said, I often add files to older archived cd-r's.


A:Roxio EasyCD Creator Versions

A CD made with one version is ok with any other version, or another program. i.e. a CD made with Easy CD Creator 5 will be readable with Easy Media Creator 7, Nero, CloneCD etc etc. What might cause a problem is that some discs are not readable in some drives. If your drive(s) are currently working ok with the media you are using they will continue to work with another version of the software.

After having had to recently reinstall my Windows XP (both home and professional versions) following a recent virus attack; I today tried for the first time to save some files to a CD. With the Help of the Answer gateway peopleand a window on the computer itself I have been informed that the Roxio Creator 5 and Windows XP programs are not compatible and that I needed to upgrade to Roxio Creator #6.

Before I go through the expense of upgrading to version #6; I'm wondering if anybody knows of any other freeware CD creator programs?

As always thanks in advance to this community's computer savvy members.

without knowing that it was not compatible w/ Win 7. I then tried to un-install it and now I have "remnants" left over. Specifically speaking when I open up MS word or MS excel 2010 , the easy cd creator says its trying to install easy cd creator 6. At least 2 pop ups like this occur. I tried searching the registry and deleting. I even went on line to roxio's site and got the procedure to run + regedit and look for their suggestions to delete (all to no avail) + I used c cleaner and after all this the little pop up windows related to easy cd creator 6 are still occurring. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I am not real happy with Roxio. I am a football coach who needs a program that:
(1) rips video off DVD's;
(2) has some basic authoring tools (add music, text)
(3) Can burn to a 4 stack DVD burner.

Really could use some help if there is a program & company more dependable than Roxio. I just bought the program 2 months ago and they want $35 for tech support!!!

I bought (downloaded) Roxio Creator NXT 2 from Amazon to copy my homemade DVD's for Christmas gifts to our kids and grandkids. I managed to get one good copy but the next copy asked me to insert a blank DVD+R disk when I copied a DVD-R disk. I have started over several times and either get that problem or that the "blank" disk already has those files on them or "buffer underrun". I should probably get a refund if I can't use the program. Hoping somebody can figure out what I am doing wrong.

A:Problem copying homemade DVD using Roxio Creator NXT 2

Try rebooting and see if that solves the problem, I had to reboot after installing the program to get it to work correctly. You could also try image burn, create an image of the original disc, then burn copies of it. edited by THX 1138
