I bought easy cd creator 6 but din't like it, prefering version 5 for cd work. One of the problems I've had is with something called easy write which seems to be a format that roxio introduces, but often windows cannot read or write to the disc.
Does windows explorer recognise the drive? if you put in a cd will it play? Have you got a cdrw disc? can it read this? If not try formatting the drive. If you can access the drive with windows then the problem must be with roxio software but if you've got the latest roxio updates I don't know what else to suggest
