Default Possible Conflict: Roxio Ver 9 / BB Desktop 4.6

Please Login to Remove!

When I got my BB in December of 07, I loaded BB desktop Ver 4.2.2. This version integrated seamlessly with my pre-installed version of Roxio Creator Basic Ver 9, a simplified version of Roxio that came pre-loaded with my HP laptop. (Business laptop).

Last week I decided to upgrade my BB desktop to the latest version 4.6, and DL'd it from the RIM site. When I went to burn a dvd I had a window pop up saying I needed to insert the Roxio V9 disc. This did not occur when i Loaded the earlier version.

To solve the problem, I decided to un-install the newer version of BB desktop and see what would happen to My pre-installed Roxio - same thing happened with a pop up coming on saying I needed to install the Roxio Disk. I then un-installed Roxio as well and had our IT manager re-install with the original install disk/test and all is now ok.

Being a Business computer with a rather strict IT dept...this was an issue..not a major one, but anything goes wrong with these laptops due to operator "messing around", it gets noted and serious events such as even thinking about loading Skype, Lime wire or some other such open program is cause for dismissal...I simply cannot gamble on that.

So here is my dilema. Now that I have the original Roxio Creator back in business & working fine, I am leary of re-installing BB desktop ver 4.2.2.

Any thoughts on this.??

thank you,

stk

I would install Desktop Manager without Roxio if you are having problems. When you install DM, you can choose not to install MediaManager/Roxio.

I am assuming that one could still add media files to an Micro sd directly.? If that is the case, I think I will do just that.!

Thanx Daphne (always liked that name - kinda Greek Goddess like.!)

Yes, you can add media files to the card without Roxio. When connected via USB your device will be visible in My Computer as a removable drive. You need to have mass media storage enabled in the media card options.
