Hi I have ROXIO Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum installed on an older PC, in storage. I thought perhaps I could install it on my present WinXP SP3 PC.

When I attempt to install the software from the disk, my PC says it isn't compatible and doesn't want to load it. I've been on the ROXIO site and downloaded updated drivers for WinXP, however my PC won't install the drivers because it can't detect ROXIO Easy CD Creator!?

It's a chicken and egg problem.

% will not work in xp at all. Uninstall it and you should be fine.

Version 7 or above work if memory serves me correctly.

As for the other burner you're mentioning thank you, but I do have other burners. I just like the interface this has and when all is said and done 'I bought this'

Yep you sure did. You also bought Windows XP, trouble is the two won't work together. Having said that I did manage to get v5 working in XP, there were engine\programe updates on the web, but that was prior to SP's1\2\3.

Maybe worth checking the Roxio website for updates if they still support v5.

I've already been there and tried that. They show you a list of products and you have choose one. My one - naturally enough - isn't there! That's why I'm here. They don't give the choice of 'Other'

I found the Roxio forums more help than the technical help - you may have to register to log in here: click here
