    Does anyone use Roxio Easy CD Creator to copy CDs? I was trying to copy a music CD last night and halfway through, I got an error and the recording stopped. I tried it 3 different times, and it kept happening.

    Anyone know what the problem could be, or does anyone know of a good copying program?

    Thanks.

    You could have a copy protected CD – some of the newer audio CDs have copy protection. If you are using a new batch of blanks they might not be working with your recorder.

    If the CD is copy protected you would have to use a program like CloneCD and your CD writer would have to be able to defeat the copy protections.

    You could update EZCD: http://www.roxio.com/en/support/software_updates.jhtml

    I remember having the old Adaptec Easy CD Creator (now known as Roxio) a few years ago. I tried burning a RW CD with music to listen on a conventional CD player. It didn't work of course. But Adaptec wasn't informing me that I couldn't do so. The new Roxio must surely advise you.

    I don't know what kind of CD you were trying to burn but I think Roxio must be up to date. You should give us more details though.

    Yea karbo you are right . You must have the updates or it won`t burn for you . I played with it also but wouldn`t work , so tried alcohol120 for a quick burn and it worked great. Didn`t bother updating as a format is on-going.

    Ok I musta missed something in the translation. :confused:

    I have EZ CD Creator 5 and I just made an exact copy of a brand new cd last night using my LG 16x DRD-8160B DVD & LG GCE 8240b 24x10x40 CD-RW. I just insert the original into the DVD, a blank into the cd-rw & select CD Copier. It recorded a perfect copy that plays in both my home & car cd player.

    What I was trying to copy was a music CD that was already burned off of another music CD. When I got the error, I thought maybe it was because the CD was a copy.

    I tried it again with another music CD that I had bought at a store, and I got the error again. I don't understand what's going on because I've used Roxio to copy programs, and it worked great.

    Maybe I'll try Alcohol 120. Thanks. :)

    It's still ion the digital domain so it shouldn't matter if it's a copy of a copy, however certain cheaper brands might give you trouble (I think they're the light greenish color) because the signal is too weak for the laser to pick up. Usually a good brand like TDK will work 9 out of 10 times unless the equipment is bad.
