    Roxio 6 seems to have taken over. I,m burning coasters. Any ideas?

    Also, I had to remove musicmatch (which I liked) because it was constantly popping up when I didn't want it too.

    Simarlarly, Real Player and Windows Media Player always fight together. I feel like a referee losing control at a big game.

    Is there a way to gain control?

    click on start. select Set Program Access and defaults, goto CUSTOM. scroll down to default media player. select the one you want as default. and make sure there is no check in the other ones.

    if that does not work. you can always delete the ones not used by add/remove programs. except windows media player.

    Thanks. That seems to restrict the player apps.

    Now, any ideas why Roxio lets me burn CDs but not DVDs?
