It appears that my CD-Burner isn't supported by the majority of burning programs out there... I have a HP Cd-writer 9100 series burner and so far I have only gotten Nero and Cdrwin to work. Does anyone have a good idea about what to do since I need to get Roxios DirectCD to work...

...and I don't know the EXACT number of the burner at the moment, just wondering if anyone has any good ideas...

I can only offer a tip. FORGET ROXIO!
Nothing but problems always. Why do you need direct cd?
Nero, I believe has a similar program, and it works better from what I've heard.

I know that DirectCD doesn't work well, but I have some stuff on one CD that I need. And the only way to get it seems to be by installing DirectCD...

Ok, I need you to explain the problem, what exactly is happening, and why you think you cant get it to work.
Also tell me your Windows version, and anything else relevant to this issue.

I have Windows XP and it literally tells me that the old version of DirectCD is not XP compatible... Therefore I have downloaded the newest (XP compatible) version. But it doesnt recognise my burner, just like most other recording software...

Note: friend of mine has the same problem, also has the same burner...

Ok since you have not told me the exact model number, Im not sure what to look for. So here is the LINK! to HP's site and go through the help section there. You will most likley find what your looking for after you identify your model number.

Have tried that... doesn't work. It seems fairly impossible to find out the excact number of the drive... don't know why. It clearly doesn't say in the manual or on the drive itself...

Hey I have a ques:

I loaded Roxia Adaptec 5 Platinum and now my CD burner doesn't read any discs. It starts the spin cycle and it goes for a few seconds and then nothing. A little red light turns-on on the drive. I even downloaded the new Firmware & that didn't do a thing!

The drive is a 'Yamaha CRW8424E' The firmware I have is 1.0j

What can i do??

Yo, luxcar101, I have the exact burner as you, and had the exact problem as you, under Win2k & WinXP. The problem is Easy CD Crapola. That software is junk and good for nothing! Move to NERO! You wont have these problems anymore, as I found out!

If you need a software to recover data that you cant see, get THIS software, it's free, and will see your disc by bypassing the Windows Drivers.

NICE, Specs!

You cats outta canada ain't half bad!

I'll download this software and see if it works. I'll download Nero off of Morpheus when I get the chance. Is there a version I should look for (BTW I'm only dwnlding first to see if it's ser friendly and I can use it, i'm a big supporter of developes out there and hate stealing from them).

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

It works, it works, it works...

Now I think i'll sing the Canadian Nat'l Anthem:

'Oh Canada! [Something patriotic about Mountee's (sp?)]'
'Oh Canada! [Something about the nutritional benefits of round bacon]'

j/k

Thanx for real though, life saver!

ROXIO SUCKS!!!

ISO Buster obviously doesn't work on my machine.... but then again I'm not surprised...

LOL! Thanx luxcar101! I'm glad it all works for you. Nero looks a bit confusing at first, but you can get it to look a bit like EZ CD Destroyer. The main thing is Nero WORKS! It's good stuff. So have fun! :D

Hey Jhiaxus, whats wrong with your machine?
