Easy CD creator 5 platinum - can't get it to work

I downloaded a platinum version of my roxio easy cd creator and tried to install it. in other to finish the installation of the platinum, i had to unstall my 5.0 basic ... which i did.

after that, when all was done, i tried to make a video cd but i keep getting this error message:

"there are no supported cd recorders available ... you may need to update your easy cd creator to recognize you recorder"

anyone know what all this is about? since it won't let me install both easy cd creator 5.0 and platinum at the same time.
any suggestion? clues? tips? ... all would be great.

Is the OS XP or Win2000

Is this XP or Win2000 if so this may be the solution.

If you goto the Roxio website and download the latest support version, this should resolve your issue:

I had to get version 5.02 to get it to work with my Toshiba DVD/CDRW

But any of the latest version should work just fine.

I agree with WBaldwin... the easiest way to fix that problem is to go to Roxio's website and download the newest patch for the software.  I too had the same problem.  Roxio wouldn't recognize my 48x Liteon, but after the patch, I was good to go.

Hmm, downloaded it huh?  That's funny...I don't recall Roxio selling EZCD 5 Platinum for download.  We can't help you with supporting pirated software!

What video format are you trying to copy to CD?  If you downloaded movies from the net in DivX format, you cant burn that to CD... you must first convert it to a VCD or a SVCD through MPEG format ... not AVI...

Has anyone but me missed the fact that this is probably with regards to PIRATED SOFTWARE?!?

Oh, and Zax_20: you certainly can burn DivX to CD-R, you just can't play it back on anything other than a PC (or one of the new "settop" DVD players that will play DivX, like the KiSS whatever model).  And I don't know about EZCD VCD creator, but I know Nero will allow you to import AVI (regardless of codec, so long as you have the codec installed for playback) and export to VCD directly, without an intermediate step...

With Roxio's Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum... VCD will not burn unless its a recognizable format.  DivX is not one of those... I've tried...

Hmm, I figured as much...just another reason Nero is fast becoming the king of the CD-R software mountain...
