Roxio`s site as well as many on the net are continuing to change daily, update, move, merge, etc...

Keeping the links active is difficult and many of the articles I have here are for the earlier versions of the software. I will keep them listed for archive purposes, if you find dead links, my apologies but more than likely they are gone for good.

When I try to copy a game or software CD, I get a message: The current track contains more than 100 form transitions.

This information applies to the following product(s): Easy CD Creator, CD Copier

This information applies to the following operating system(s): All OS's

Easy CD Creator cannot handle more than 100 form transitions on a single track. We have no work around for this. In most cases, we see this with discs that have copyright protection.

--Most of the CDS causing this error are made with a large numbers of form transitions recorded onto the CD to prevent copying, such as game discs or commercial CDs, and we can not copy them.

--Most of the Software Companies that copy protect their discs like this, sell a one-time-backup copy for a small fee. Contact the manufacturer.

When using a single CDR or CDRW drive and no CD-ROM drive on your system, Sound Stream temporally stores (caches) the songs on your hard disk in the C:\Windows\Temp directory. Once the tracks are written to the disc the stored items are removed from your hard disk.

Make Sure you enough space on your hard disk to temporally store these songs. An entire 74-minute CD takes approximately 750mb of space on the hard disk and an 80-minute CD takes approximately 800mb of space on the Root hard disk.

45-0-14: I am getting Engine Initialization Error with Easy CD Creator 5.0x.(Article 011214-000001)

(1)

Error "Engine Initialization has failed"

When I attempt to launch an Easy CD Creator project I receive a message: "Engine Initialization has failed"
When I Attempt to launch Sound Stream I receive a message: "ICDE Main Interface has failed"
Note: Errors may also say Create50.exe, cannot create creator (or create instance.)

This information applies to the following product(s):

Easy CD Creator 5.x Platinum Suite
Easy CD Creator 5.x Basic

This information applies to the following operating system(s):

Windows 95
Windows 98
Windows NT 4
Windows ME
Windows 2000
Windows XP

We have confirmed that a Worm Virus (W32.Klez.H@mm) can cause this.

In most cases, the virus will cause Engine Failures to Easy CD Creator installations that had previously worked fine. However, fresh installations are also affected. This virus has been reported to the major Anti Virus software vendors, please check with your vendor for updates and/or utility tools for virus removal.

This type of error message is also caused when required DLL files failed to register. If these required files register unsuccessful during the Easy CD Creator installation process, Roxio's main Engine will not load and cause multiple errors. We have created a utility that will automatically register our CD Recording Engine.

Advanced Trouble Shooting Steps:

Open "My Computer" and browse to C:\Program Files\ Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine to verify the following required .dll files

a) Acmwrapperv2.dll
b) Cdngine.dll
c) Driversv2.dll
d) Mediaplayerv2.dll

If the above files are present please skip to step 7
If the above fie are not present you will need to run engine setup.exe from the Roxio installation CD.

1. Insert the Roxio Installation CD in your CD drive. (If asked if you would like to install choose "No")

2. Click the Start button then right click "My Computer" and select "Explore." Open the Roxio install CD by Clicking on the CD drive it resides in

3. Locate and double click the folder "Engsetup"

4. Double click the file "Engsetup.exe" and click the "Install" Button

5. If the installation fails your may need to update your regsvr32.exe file Please visit the following Microsoft link to download this file.

6. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://download.microsoft.com/download/access95/util5/1/WIN98/EN-US/Regsv32a.exe

7. Once this file has been downloaded to your computer, you will have to extract it to C:\Windows\System32 C:\Windows\Syytem or C:\WINNT\System32 depending on your Operating system and Installation configuration.

8. First determine which folder contains your default copy of Regsrv32.exe.

9. Go to "Start" and choose "Search" or "Find" depending on your Operating System

10. Choose Files and Folders.

11. Make sure that you have your Local Hard drive C: selected to "Look In"

12. Type "regsvr32.exe", your search may display several files. Pleas pay attention to the file in C:\Windows\System, C:\WINNT\System32 or C:\Windows\System32 depending on the Operating System.

13. Rename regsvr32.exe which resides in the above folder, right click on the file and choose "rename" then rename the .exe extension to .old

14. Close the search window

15. Extract the Microsoft file regsvr32a.exe to the folder, which contained your original regsvr32.exe file. (Do not copy and past, this file needs to be extracted)

16. Once the file has been copied please repeat 1-5 to get the necessary .dll files copied to the C:\Program Files\ Common Files\AdaptecShared\CDEngine folder.

17. Go to "Start" then "Run"

18. In the run dialog box please copy and paste the following commands including the quotes and click "OK" one at a time.

Regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine\ACMWrapperV2.dll"

Regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine\driversV2.dll"

Regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine\MediaPlayerV2.dll"

 

If the above files have all registered successfully try launching an Easy CD Creator Project. If you still receive errors when the program is initializing, we suggest calling in for technical assistance.

If any of the above files besides driversv2.dll fail to register we would suggest calling in for technical support.

If driversv2.dll fails to register, it may be having a problem linking with certain system files native to your OS. If this is the case, you can try searching for and copying these system files to the C:\program files\common files\cdengine folder, where driversv2.dll resides.

Note: All files may not be found, or you may have your OS set to hide system files. You may also find mutiple instances of the files mentioned below. If this is the case please do a properties check on each file and verify that the size does not equal zero and choose to copy the most recent version to the path mentioned below.

Alt.dll
Mfc42.dll
Msvcp60.dll
Msvcrt.dll
Ole32.dll
Shlwapi.dll
Wininet.dll

Copy the above files to c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CDEngine, and then repeat step 17.

If Driversv2 still fails to register after copying these system files to the CDEngine folder, one or more may be corrupt. You may need to extract these files from your Windows installation CD, contact Microsoft for updated versions or call in and speak with a Roxio Technician.

45-0-18: Video CD created with Video CD Creator, it is not playable in my DVD Player.(Article 020213-000003)

After successfully creating a Video CD with Video CD Creator, it is not playable in my DVD Player.

My VCD will not play in my DVD player.

This information applies to the following product(s):

Easy CD Creator Platinum 5.02x

This information applies to the following Operating System(s):

Windows 95
Windows 98
Windows NT 4
Windows ME
Windows 2000
Windows XP

  1. In order for a Video CD created using one MPEG1 file to be readable on a DVD player, there must be at least 2 tracks created on the CD. For example; if two MPEG1 files were used to create the Video CD then the CD should have 3 tracks, and so on. To verify the proper number of tracks are created you can use Easy CD Creator’s Data project.
  2. If there are 2 or more tracks listed here (depending on the number of MPEG1 files used) then the VCD was recorded successfully. If this VCD is not playable the problem is most likely with the DVD player. Please insure that your DVD player is compatible with Video CD’s and supports CDR/RW media. (Refer to your DVD player’s manual)
