where to get trial

  krislas 21:23 27 Feb 2004

Does anybody know where I can get a trial version of roxio easy cd creator? I have Nero 5.5 bundled with my drive, but I am not getting on very well with it. I would like to try Roxio first before I commit to buying it.

Thanks for that. I do not think I made my request clear. I am looking for free trial. I could not find this is the site you mentionned. Any ideas?

The only place you could get one is click here but it doesn't look like they offer a trial version....

Go to this site click here

Enter easycd in the Search box and press the Find button. About 10 files display. You'll find 2 displayed with 'Trial' in their name as follows:



I think the 2nd with the sp4 in it is the enhanced/platinum version. If you have a B'band connection download both & see which one suits you. To download just left-click on the file(s)

Let us know how you get on...

Thanks very much. I will give it a go and let you know.

Sorry, should've asked you this before...

Are you on a dial-up or broadband connection? As it is a fairly large download, if you are on dial-up you can use one of those 'download managers' which lets you pause & resume downloads unlimited number of times until you've downloaded the entire file/program.

Please say if you require such a download manager, or ignore this message if you're OK & don't need one.

In what way is it better than Easy CD creator? I have Nero 5.5 and it takes much longer to burn stuff on my new fast drive than it did on my old slow one with Roxio. It also takes for ever to eject a CDRW, sometimes 1 minute!! I want to be able to just burn the odd thing as back up as I create them, eg a new file or photo. The new EAsy CD Creator allows you to drop to the drive directly; if this also works with CDR's I'll be very pleased. Anyway, I saw last night that a) the file was very big and as I am not on braoadband it would take for ever, (thanks for getting back to me on that Crossbow) and b)that there was a copy of Easy CD on Amazon markt place for £18.50, so I took the plunge.
I will soon know for sure whether Nero6 is the daddy of Roxio is the mammy!!!!! Watch this space

To drag and drop files with the Program you have to load "Direct CD" packet writing software

i find nero to be very fast.full 80min cdr or 700mb of data in just under 2mins on avg at x52(if i want to scare my cat:-)

sometimes using a different brand of disc may help maybe.also try an update for nero 5 click here

to be honest if easy cd works then stick with it.use what you feel works best for you.i just like nero for ease of use.have nothing against using easy cd.i have never tried it.

cdrw as backups though i would not use them.cdr discs only,more reliable.
