Whenever I start iTunes I get a weird error message. It says Warning! The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs & DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes. There is info on how to fix it here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302976
The thing is, once I do this, Roxio Easy CD Creator doesn't work. This problem only started when I upgraded iTunes but now all versions give me the same error. Is there any way to use both and not get the error message?

Not everyone that has viewed this post might know the answer to your question(s). It is usually wiser for people who don't know the topic not to answer a post, as they may end up doing more harm than help.

Itunes can be very particular about other programs and itself. Itunes "protects" (for lack of a better term) both itself and it's downloaded music by making it difficult to work with other products/programs. I've run into this many times with my son. We eventually stopped using Itunes to download music, as it would only play in Itunes, couldn't be transferred to another drive (or CD), caused problems with his burning software etc. etc. It's how Itunes keeps itself in business IMHO (I'm not a fan of Itunes), and makes it difficult/near impossible to use with other software. This prevents "illegal" copying of files to CD and prevents them from being shared online. This also prevents them from you being able to listen to them in your car, in a portable CD player, downstairs on the stereo system.....the only place that you can listen to Itunes is on something made by Itunes (Ipod, Itunes software on your computer etc.). If you've downloaded the song to your computer and paid for it via Itunes, you should be able to pay an additional .99 and be able to copy it to another device (another drive or non Itunes MP3 player) or to a CD (but I believe you can only do this one time).

My best advice is to find another CD burning software that doesn't conflict with Itunes. You can find a lot of free CD burning software HERE.

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:

Thanks, I didn't know all that stuff about how crappy iTunes is. I just got an iPod so I need to use it, and I love having Roxio for burning so I guess I'm just going to deal with it untill I can figure out how to get rid of it.

You could try submitting that question to Roxio HERE
