Appearntly I have installed it without the directCD, and installed the patches from the roxio website, but when I still try to install the directCD, it says "Driver not supported, do you still want to install it?"
So, I don't want to install it if its not supported, and screw up the system, cause last time when I did it XP disabled my burner and dvd drive drivers; I couldn't use either one of them after that, so I had to reinstall XP....

Thanks.

ive installed it a total of 4 or 5 times i think on two different systems and it worked fine each time i did it. You must follow the directions here very closely. It will tell you that the drive is not supported when you try to install the first time; ignore this. Then after rebooting, you might get some sort of error from windows saying that a certain driver wasnt loaded cuz it isnt compatable with xp. Ignore this and run the patch xp_up_platinum.exe and reboot again. Then update to 5.02 and restart. Then run the xp_up_platinum a second time and restart. Thats how ive done it and i haven't had a single problem

Yes, it worked...!!! Awesome....
Thanks a lot....

NOTE: You will also have to disable IMAPI. (Which is a speed tweak for Nero in this site.) That way XP's built-in writer will not interfear with DirectCD.

SUGGESTION: Webmaster can add this to the bug guide or installation help to this web site... (I am not talking credit for it).

Laters...

I have a somewhat related question.


When I install Easy Cdcreator 5 platinum, I d/l the XP upgrade as well as the update to v5.02c (or 5.03c, i don't remember the number but it's the latest from the website).

Anyhow, I have no problem running the XP migration update, but when I try to run the 5.02c version upgrade, it says that I do not have a version of Easy CDcreator that can be upgraded.

I don't know why.

It happened to me too... :confused:
I don't know why either...
Try this... download a different patch... and try to install it or just reinstall the whole EasyCD.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
