two unmounted volumes showing?

  jake williamson 13:18 29 Aug 2003


i've just installed roxio easy cd creator on my pc running w2k pro and now each time i restart, the disk checker comes up saying a disk called:


need checking. if i let it check it then goes on to check the c: drive.

in addition, the machine will now not shut down! it restarts, not matter what i do.

i've just run the disk defragmenter and it's showing two unmounted volumes with no drive letter. one showing 20mb with 6mb free space and one with 18mb and 15mb free.

has the installed really muched up something? it's begining to do me head in...

thanks for any advice,

hi harry,

no joy - just downloaded the updater and ran it. the software seems to have updated but i'm still getting the 'cant shutdown, getting the disk checking at start up problem.'

begining to drive me mad!

thanks for your reply,

in addition, i now get this dialog box everytime i start up:

roxio assistant ran successfully, ret code:tbl

what does that mean??!!

The "take two" feature in roxio's software is not supported in win2k if this was installed in the first installation then you would have been asked if you wanted to remove it during the upgrade did this occur?,you should also remove any other cd recording software if you have any, and finally try uninstalling ezcd creator to see if the problems stop.

thanks harry, i'll try the 'uninstal' at shutdown today and let you know what happens.

the weird thing is that the machine is still really stable in opperation...

thanks for your help,
