  1. Well, I've looked around and played with this version enough that I'm not seeing a solution, so I guess I just go back to the previous version that worked.
  2. In version, when ever I burn a cd, it does not display the album title name in any of my car stereo's. In all versions prior to this one, that worked perfectly. It does display the song title's correctly though. What's the trick in this newest version? Thank you
  3. So, that explains the sudden reappearance of the minimal version after only 1 or 2 updates?
  4. FWIW, I just installed the new version of CDBurner without checking here first to see if that goofy Open Candy crap was being added back into the program again and already. I saw no option to refuse that install. I only heard that Open Candy was being reintroduced on another techie forum, so I immediatley scanned with Malwarebytes and it found nothing. I only did a quick scan but Mbam always found Open Candy just doing that. So, Is it included again or not? Guess I'll waste my time and do a full scan with Mbam now and find out. I do like this program (CDBurnerXP) a lot, but will not use it if I can't remove that Open Candy garbage!! Edit: Oops! Didn't see post #107 before posting. Very glad to have seen that! Thank you
  5. Or, do a quick scan with Malwarebytes and it'll be gone too. Glad to see that Open Candy crap gone!! Might even persuade me to make a donation. Thanks
  6. "I see no reason to complain whatsoever about Adwares" Most ridiculous line I've ever read about ANY PROGRAM! I'm glad as heck I've been shopping around for a different burning program then and have found one, without that crap Open Candy!! You can defend and/or recommend this stuff until you're blue in the face and I'm glad you like to install the junk, but as far as I'm concerned, if you're not going to write a version of CDBurnerXP that DOES NOT have Open Candy in it, then I am done with this program! Doesn't matter that even a quick scan with Malwarebytes removes the garbage from this thing, I am definitely NOT going to install something I KNOW has malware in it, whether you prefer to call it malware or not! Thak you
  7. Thank you, floele. Can't believe I've never seen or tried that option under the menu bar for entring text manually, but that did the tirck! My issue is solved.
  8. Nope, Not any kind of a bug in the last 3 versions anyway. Will let you know about that text entry thing still though. Thank you
  9. We're getting WAY off topic now, but just to reply, I ALWAYS uncheck the box to automatically download and install updates, but the program would still try and do just that, in what ever version it was I was using back then. That was at least 2, maybe 3 years ago. Took me a long time before I finally decided to update the program and then that was only because some of the people in the forums at neowin.net said that the program finally quit updating even though that box was unchecked.
  10. I'm pretty sure I've tried that before, but will double check on the next disc I burn. Was using an older version of the program up until not to long ago because CDBurnerXP WOULDN'T allow me to disable the automatic checking of program updates. I DESPISE programs that do that! Will let you know how that works. Thank you
  11. Yes, CD text is enabled and I'm not even sure how to manually specify it, which I wouldn't want to do anyway. If I HAD to do that, I'd simply use a different burning program!
  12. Depending on who you're replying to, floele, both my car stereo's support it, but when I use CDBurnerXP, neither of them display the artists name. When I burn a cd using my Debian Linux boxes and K3B, it displays artists name and the name of the songs, every time.
  13. It is the player in your car that has to support reading the names of the files to work correctly. Just about any half way modern player should be able to do that. My question is along the same lines, so hoping this isn't considered stealing the thread, but I'd like to know how to make CDBurnerXP display the name of the album when played in car stereo? It always just says no name although the track titles do display correctly. FWIW, Using most current version of CDBurnerXP and Windows 7. Thank you
  14. You're saying the "next" current version, right? I'll be watching for it. Thank you
  15. So, Is that other thread saying that in next version, the issue that the person over there was having and maybe my issue will be fixed? Otherwise, I've gone back to version, which is the last version that didn't have the outgoing connection issue on every startup. Thanks again
  16. Just an update to this issue. Installed Linux Xubuntu 11.04 using Wubi a while back on the laptop I was originally having issues on. Just burned a disc that works perfectly using K3b burning tool!! Didn't have to do anything special either. Just loaded the tunes into the programs and clicked burn. Now I'm really miffed at this laptop! Why doesn't the stupid burner work in Windows? Going to burn another disc right now and will see what happens. Edit: 2 for 2 on the burns!! Second one worked perfectly also. May be the end of Windows on this laptop!! Doesn't solve original problem, but I know my burner isn't junk now, at least.
  17. OK. I now suspect it is not CDBurnerXP actually trying to make the connection, but it IS what is causing Windows to try and make the connection and I still do not like it nor will I allow it. Thread closed, as far as I'm concerned. Thanks to everyone
  18. That's EXACTLY what purpose I should use a firewall for and EXACTLY what it's intended for. If some program is attempting to make an outgoing connection and doesn't explain itself, ESPECIALLY when that program IS NOT supposed to be making any outbound connections, I'm blocking it. If the program quits working altogether then, I would probably not even attempt to use it anymore. CDBurnerXP has NEVER done this before and then to suddenly do it for no reason what so ever, is WAY to sneaky, in my book. Issue is more or less solved now though as installing using the msi installer only triggers the initial outbound connection attempt. I block that first attempt, it doesn't attempt again. Just may continue using it for a while more now, although have gotten back into using Linux more than half the time recently.
  19. I figured it had to be something to do with Windows looking something up, but could not pin point it. Any IP route that shows up when my firewall alerts me is just directed to one of my DNS servers. As Alko stated, I hate programs doing this stuff also and by blocking it at the firewall, it makes the program take noticeably longer to start up.
  20. Yep, After initial install of the MSI version of the program on another computer and disabling NMSAccess immediately, it still attempts to connect to the internet upon the first time it's started. Subsequent starts do not attempt to connect to anything though. Still not right, but much better. I guess I'll call this thing solved as good as it's going to be. Thanks for all the help.
  21. Finally got a chance to uninstall version I had and install using the msi file. Upon firing CDBurnerXP up the first time, got the same attempt to connect to the internet. Remembered about that NMSAccess service and disabled it. It was set to Automatic, but wasn't started. I disable it anyway. Deleted the log file from firewall and fired it up 3 more time and no outgoing attempt made. Will make sure to get on a Windows machine tomorrow morning and repeat this and remember to disable that NMSAccess service before first attempt at starting CDNurnerXP. Otherwise, looks promising, so far.
  22. I think one of us is misunderstanding the other here. I did not use the msi installation the first time, but am going to uninstall the standard install and then reinstall using the msi installation. Haven't done it yet though. Will post back once I have tried it.
  23. Hmm? Never seen that page before. Also, if auto updates is disabled by default using a msi installer, maybe I'll just uninstall and reinstall using that and see what happens. Thanks again!!
