It appears from the help menu that I have to use the drag and drop window to find the format function. When I try to format a used disc I am informed that the recorder is busy. When I try to scan the disc I am informed that a different application is using disc. I cannot find what application is either hogging the disc or the CD drive .Please what do I have to exit from the conflicting applicaion. Can anyone tell me how to format without drag and drop being active? Thanks Peter
Thanks for ideas. I am trying to format -rw discs as suggested When I go to start/programs there is only a Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator option. This splits into a series of applications such as Audio Central, Disc Copier,DVD Builder, Photo Suite,Creator Classic and Drag to Disc none of these has an applications option even when I open them. Perhaps Technotiger you are refering to an earlier version. More help would be appreciated Thanks
If you are using XP you can try disabling the built in Windows burning software, which is a cut down version of Roxio. Right click the drive and choose properties. On the Recording tab uncheck the box to enable CD recording.
However I can leave it checked on this machine without problem using Roxio 6.
I started by clicking on the large drag and drop icon without success but the message came up about the drive being busy already Yes I am using XP,by drive I assume you were refering to the CD drive (in my case "d"). By right clicking and properties I can find no reference to a box to uncheck "enable cd burning" even under advanced tab. Should I be looking somewhere else? Thanks to all PS I do not have Nero installed
I use Roxio creator 6 Platinum and had the very same problem, open My computer ( with no disc in the drive) right click on the cdrw drive icon, properties, and then on the list that appears, click on recording, if the box marked enable recording on this drive is ticked, untick it. and then reboot. The XP recording feature conflicts with the ECCD6 software. I hope that this is of some help to you, if not try the Roxio users forum
