DirectCD Bad Driver Error from Roxio Solutions

Solution #1.

This is very likely a virtual device driver from Roxio, and not a real hardware device driver. Remove this driver by uninstalling the applicable software. If you’re not using Roxio, uninstall it. If you are, try to uninstall Roxio – reboot your PC – and then reinstall Roxio to correct the issue.

Solution #2.

Go to the Windows Add/Remove feature, and see if there’s an “Adaptec” entry and uninstall it. (Possibly, this is located in Program Files\Adaptec\Easy CD Creator 5\DirectCD). Restart your PC.

Good luck!
