Problems with cd re-writer.

  cass27 23:23 18 Apr 2003

I used to use my cd re-writer a lot to burn downloaded stuff off the computer. I left it a while. Come back and I get the message. "Easy CD creator" engine innitialization has failed. It won't boot up. Windows Me. Re-writer is Samsung. Software is Easy CD creator (adaptec).
I recently got Windows XP. Still same problem but it also says at end of install:Compatability problem with this version of windows.
Anybody any ideas? Do I hve to have this software with this rewiter or can I use diff to Adaptec?

Thanks for your help

You could try DiscJuggler. It is on the PCA Magazine CD Issue 93 for May 2003

It says "Complete Solution for CD Burning, Backup and Copying"

click here it maybe a virus so run an AV check.

...also click here and update your version on ECDC.

A previous posting said that EasyCD Creator doesn't work with WinXP.

It does work with XP but you need the updates.

I had problems a while back on win98, the easiest thing to do is to use another program, there easy to get hold of. Also i find that typing part of the error messages u are getting, into a search engine, will link u to forums were people are having the same problem and possibly give u a solution. Theres always someone with the same problem.

If you install the updates do it as it says on the roxio site or it will not work properly.
