CD error message re drivers

Post by Christin » Sat, 20 Dec 2003 10:55:17

I recently got a new hard drive. I tried to install the
Easy CD software that was on the previous hard drive (both
with XP Home) but for some reason it wouldn't accept it. I
bought the newer version and that installed fine and I
tried a test burn without difficulty. My problem is that
when I boot up, I get an error message popup in the sys.
tray that says "CD Recording Software will cause Windows
to become unstable. Windows has prevented these drivers
from loading." I tried removing the program and
reinstalling but it is still there.

I ran a registry cleaning program and it said a program
listing I could delete was "HighMAT Extension to XP CD
Writing Wizard" which I tried but the same error showed
up. (Because of this, I did a sys. restore to before I
took it out to replace it.) Norton Disk Doctor didn't
solve the problem either.

I followed the instructions on MS's site as to what to do
when this error comes up. The 2 system files it mentioned
I did not find on my computer but there was one change I
made in the registry as it instructed. Still no removal
of the error message.

It appears I am having some programs hangup because of
this and would like to resolve it without having to
reinstall XP or reformat. Any suggestions welcomed!

You need to go to Roxio's website ( who make EZCD Creator and
download their updates. It is a known problem with v5.0 and XP... and
always has been since XP was released. They did fix it... but you need to
get the updates yourself.
