Roxio Easy CD Creator Default Recorder: None

2Roxio_LogoBeing considered a techie (nerd) to my friends and family, I’ve been assigned to 24 hour tech support for any computer issue they may come across. Recently I experienced an issue with an older version of Roxio that took me over an hour to figure out. The issue experienced is when trying to use Roxio Easy CD Creator to burn data, music, or DVD’s., the program does not detect CD and DVD drives on the computer. Instead of selecting which drive to burn to it says: Default Recorder: None

To help save others allot of time, here is the fix that worked for me… 

To fix this issue you need to apply this record engine patch.

  1. Download the record engine patch pxengine1_08_34a.exe. Save the file on your computer.
  2. Double-click the file (pxengine1_08_34a.exe).
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Restart the computer.
  • I had no problems with Roxio so far, but i wish to download the patch for backup. Can you please tell me if this patch is compatible with windows 7 ?
    Thank you for the guide.
