I've got Roxio 2009 when first installed it does not launch from the desktop icon. Go into the program files and find the Roxio 2009 folder. Find an application and start it then check for updates. That fixed mine.
I have Roxio 9 installed and it works perfectly. I have been using Roxio for 4 years and never had a problem with it. I make movies , edit and burn, works better than any other program I have tried. Can't recall having any DVD's I burned that had a problem.
