    i need some help as well. i did a test to see where the problem was. i have been running xp pro as an oem before it came out to the public. since then i was just using my laptop internal cdr and everything was ok. i did DL the "b" update and install that to fix direct cd not knowing my cdr drive. now heres my lap stats

    Compaq Presario 1800US
    PIII 900MHz
    198MB RAM
    30GB HD Internal
    16MB ATI Rage Mobility 3D
    Combo----24X/4x4/12xDVD internal
    Floppy Drive
    56k
    Internal 10/100
    Belkin PCMCIA FireWire Card
    Que 16x10x40 External FireWire Drive
    80GB External 7200rpm FireWire Drive

    Now since i got the que drive i have been making more coasters then cd's. It works kinda when it wants to for as long as it wants to. i cn make 4 good cd's then 3 coasters. I found restarting and taking a lot of junk out of the systray helped through msconfig.

    i got fed up and i went back to what the lap had on it from the factory. WinME.......... I have ME and had more problems with crashing when i ran that.

    anyway........ tats another story.......i loaded up me to test out easy cd creator 5 plat. I loaded as i did before on xp...........NO PROBLEMS FOR ABOUT 50 cds.............

    I burned 50 cds and had not one problem.........

    I instaled winxp and started burning coasters

    i went to the site and DLed all the new drivers and updates
    installed like the site said to.........

    I stll make coaster. Maybee not as bad as before but i am still PISSED OFF!


    Can any body tell me if they had the same prob........... or give me a step by step on how they got theirs to work


    Thanks

    ECDC 5

    I can't make ECDC Platinum work in XP with all the %#$@&% patches. Switched to Nero 5.572 and works PERFECT in XP.

    here you go works for me EVERYTIME if you do it exactly right....
    1. uninstall any easycd prog you have
    2. install the aspi driver
    3. install 5.0 DO NOT REBOOT
    4. install the 5.02d update(download it first) DO NOT REBOOTDO NOT REBOOT
    5. install the xp patch...then you can reboot...and enjoy

    ps if you go to roxio for the update you have to register just give them some bs to make them happy mine is Fred Flinstone and you can reach me at webmaster@aol.com

    Hmmm,
    why not install microsofts patch which fixes problems with creating coasters in XP?
    I've attached it here for you - this is the one released yesterday(or within a day or 2)
    Its 274K zipped up.
