Amazon.co.uk Review

Burn your own discs and manage multimedia content with the new tools in Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator. The new version of Easy CD Creator has a new interface that makes it easier to find the various tools for working with music and photos and creating CD and DVD discs. The redesigned project selector not only shows you more clearly what you can do with the software, it also stays open on screen so you can easily open two different tools at once.

Before you start burning discs, you can organise and edit images using the cut-down version of PhotoSuite, or music in the AudioCentral media player. PhotoSuite has a friendly interface with all the tools you need for basic image editing such as removing red eye, correcting exposure and repairing scratches. You can organise images into albums, print multiple images in a variety of templates to make the most of expensive photo paper and make video CDs to look at your photos on TV. AudioCentral catalogues the music on your PC: it also rips CDs to MP3 (or the unusual Ogg Vorbis format) and looks up track names automatically. You can clean up problem audio by removing noise, create playlists, watch colourful visualisations and burn songs directly to CD.

The classic CD burning functions are (logically enough) in the Creator Classic tool, where you can drag files from the Explorer window into the disk menu to build your disc. You can choose different types of disc here directly (data, audio CD, MP3 and enhanced CDs). Projects can now span multiple CDs and DVDs and automatically include the Roxio Retrieve utility for opening individual files from a multi-disc project on any PC. Filtering files in or out by name or file type makes it easy to back up documents without wasting space on temporary files. The Label Creator automatically picks up the details of tracks in your project; you get a good range of templates, including Mini Disc and DVD cases, and some colourful themes too.

If you just want to copy a disc, the Disc Copier has a clearer interface than previous versions and it now handles raw mode copies, so you can backup almost any format of disc. You can also burn files just by dragging them to the Drag-to-Disc icon on your desktop: this is very similar to Direct CD but supports more disc types, including all the varieties of DVD, giving you what's effectively an enormous floppy disk.

All the options for video discs (DVD and video CD) are in the DVD Builder tool: this isn't the most sophisticated DVD authoring tool and the menu tools are on the simple side but it's easy to use. You can add video clips and still images from your hard drive or capture from a camera, extract stills from video, add transitions between clips and pick a theme for your menu. If you're using DVD+R/W, the software lets you capture straight from the camera onto a DVD without filling up your hard drive.

The various tools all strike a balance between including powerful features and being easy to use. You need a fairly powerful system for the video capturing options, but whatever you want to do with CDs and DVDs, you should be able to do it in Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator. --Mary Branscombe

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy CD DVD Creator 6, Well worth waiting for.. 18 May 2003
Well, where shall I start? I have used many other CD Burning softwares before but none have been so easy to use and so pleasant to look at as Easy CD Creator has been. I converted to EASY CD a long time ago because I find it so brilliant to use. As for the new Easy CD 6, boy what can I say? The features are all there, exactly as Roxio has described on their website, it all happens with Easy CD 6. The user interface is outstanding, CD burning, DVD burning, data burning and audio burning are so simple to use my little nephew could use it without my help. Roxio really have kept up with their reputation for having such a brilliant piece of software. I will never go elsewhere after using Easy CD. If you are a keen CD, DVD burner then see what Easy CD can do for your burning life.

There is a known conflict between Roxio and Norton products - my Norton Internet Security 2004 will not work since installing Easy CD and DVD Creator, despite having totally uninstalled the Roxio program, reinstalling Norton IS and spending hours on the line to v helpful people at Symantec's helpdesk. My PC is left totally unprotected, and the Roxio rubbish is where I should have put it right at the start - in the bin.
Just read some of the problems users have experienced on Roxio's own web forum and you'll see that I am far from the only one to experience diabolical problems with their wretched software. Never, ever again will I have anything to do with this company. So ignore the good reports JUST DON'T BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use 25 April 2003
This software package comprises a number of discrete packages that work together to provide a very wide range of functionality.
Nowadays, it is also important that it supports a wide variety of drive formats, which it does admirably, so you can be pretty certain that it will work for you !
Creator 6 includes software for a music library, a sound editor, and a media player. So when macking your own CD you can fade tracks together or create space between them etc. This part of the product also makes use of the CDDB database to identify your tracks and saves a lot of typing.
There is a DVD creator so if you are into editing video you can create quite neat DVD menu's very fast.
The creator "classic" is still there which provides a project style interface to build many types of CD/MP3/DVD and other combinations.
An auto-update function is also provided which is a vast improvement on older versions as patching for new drive types was tiresome.
Finally there is the ubiquitous label printer program.
I suspect that very few people will need to make full use of the entire suite, but is is very easy to use and the online help is extensive, if required.
A good easy to use product that will serve you well.

1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE! 11 Jun. 2005
Verified Purchase
I bought this because of the excellent reviews, but as soon as the installation had completed and the comp restarted, my system crashed. Roxio had done something to my configuarion settings which couldn't be fixed without reverting to old settings, at which point Roxio would not work at all. Roxio's online tech support robots are no help either. I bought Nero 6, and it does what I want first time, every time. This is a badly engineered piece of software if it is experiencing catastrophic problems interfacing with my fairly run of the mill system.

1.0 out of 5 stars Roxio downrated my DVD writer 1 Mar. 2004
By PC
I have used Roxio products before, the GoBack program is excellent and I once had an early version of easy CD creator bundled with a dive. Therfore I thought buying easy CD and DVD creator 6 would be a safe bet - big mistake. The program will only recognise my Pioneer DVD writer as a CD writer, put DVD recordable media in it and the entire system locks solid, the only escape is a complete power down. I tried technical help but they seem to think that as Roxio will only recognise my drive as a CD writer thats what it must be!! After a few more emails they now seem to have lost interest. To make matters worse the system will lock up if the DVD writer is used whether or not the Roxio program is running. Wasted countless hours (and money)on this, Roxio has now been removed and I will be giving Nero a try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did I buy this? 15 Sept. 2005
By Mike
Verified Purchase
I should have read ALL the reviews. Seems some people found installation no trouble, for me it was just the opposite. Like one other reviewer, this wretched program disabled my Norton Internet Security 2004, necessitating an hour-long call to Norton help desk with the problem still unresolved. I've no idea how good/bad Roxio is at the jobs for which it's intended as I've uninstalled and dumped the CD where it belongs - in the bin.
No software should give this type of problem, so my advice is DON'T BUY IT!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars User Unfriendly 1 Dec. 2003
By A Customer
Before upgrading to Windows XP I successfully used CD Creator4. I am utterly disappointed with the latest version,for the following reasons,
1. To burn a compilation you have to create a playlist first(the tutorial does not make this clear).
2.In order to burn a compilation comprising tracks from cd's and from the media library, it seems that you first have to load the whole of each cd you wish to burn from , into the media library !
I know that many new programs can take time to learn but I found this one really hard going.
Finally I sent Roxio an e-mail about 3 weeks ago and have still not received a reply!
