My old computer, which I accidentally killed about a week and a half ago, came with Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4. Since I hadn’t planned on zapping the power source the day after getting my new computer, I didn’t think ahead and close all of the cdrs that I had recorded things on. Which, when placed in the new computer all register as “blank cdrs.” I have the old computer’s hard drive in the new computer, but it’s not one of the programs that still works anyway. Surprisingly a several of the others do.
Unfortunately, the Adaptec program was a factory installed one, so I can’t install it on my new computer (which I think sucks because when you put the application recovery disk in it complains that it only works on HP pavillions. That’s what the new computer is too!) so I’m probably going to have to buy the Easy CD Creator program in order to install it. But version four is hard to find even on E-Bay and Half.com. How likely would it be that a newer version (6?) would still be able to read the cdrs? I worry because Roxio began producing the program after version four. Is that likely to make a difference?
And has anyone here upgraded from 4 to 5 or 6? Knowing how it worked out for others would be ideal.
