I've just reinstalled windows7 on my Dell laptop and now i don't have Roxio burning software or web cam softwre. Now I think it's right that the web cam software can be downloaded from Dell, but what about the Roxio? Any ideas?

I have Roxio Creator 2010 installed on my W7 desktop.What version do you have? I bought mine on CD from Amazon. I think the latest is 2011. You can download it, but I prefer the disc,What back up did you make prior to the reinstall?
If it was pre installed by Dell as an OEM ,maybe they will supply a back up?

Thanks for the replies! I backed up all the data before the reinstall. But I assumed that the other software would be there somewhere on the disc. But it appears not! And as it is above my pay grade I am a bit wary of continuing! So any advice is welcome.

regards

I am not sure on this but laptops usually have a recovery hidden partition that contains the OEM software. How did you back up?
There is other free burning software.
Hopefully a laptop expert will comment

Well I have by accident (trying some video editing software) installed some web cam software and the web cam is up and running, again. But I would like to revert to the Dell software and Roxio. Any suggestions? Because I'm a little wary!

After some research, I've found that a version of Roxio can be downloaded from Dell. And an upgraded version of the webcam software, but it will not work! Because the drivers from the website have to be installed in the correct order. So how do I delete them?

PS To install PowerDVD you have to contact dell and ask for an installtion CD.

After much research and failures, I've decided to remain with the 3rd party web cam software!
